So Excited to Share some of the Sneak Peeks from our 2nd Annual Breastfeeding Photo Project. This was officially the second time we have done this and I couldn’t be more happy with the results. This year we choose Fall, as I had kind of dropped the ball and summer was so busy we never got around to doing it sooner. Weather was a bit chilly but these gorgeous woman toughed it out! This year we decided to go with a slightly different colour theme, because it is Fall time here in Canada which means beautiful Fall colours including, orange, yellow, brown, red among other colours so we tried to do a Fall neutral colour scheme. Needless to say this years photo was a bit more colourful than last years, but I loved it! Maybe next year we will do Spring!
This amazing project and photos would not have happened without all of the 16 Gorgeous Women and Babies that were involved in our project, among many others like our 2 beautiful make up artists Sarika and Lucero, our florist/stylist Lori Harahap, along with our videographer Jose Soriano and amazing photographer Rafael Codio and of course the ideas by myself Charlene.
Why do a photo like this? To celebrate women and babies and the bond that is created breastfeeding our children. To help normalize breastfeeding in public. To let people know that it is okay and it is something natural. To share breathtaking images of mothers and babies. To encourage more mothers to breastfeed. To not be afraid to breastfeed especially out in public. To encourage women to ask for help if you want it. To share friendships between mothers. To capture and preserve these memories for the women involved. To celebrate the normalization of breastfeeding. So many reasons why we enjoy doing this project and I plan to do one or two every year for as long as I want! I am super passionate about breastfeeding and helping other mothers breastfeed if they so wish to do so. I have breastfed all 4 of my children and not once every been embarrassed or nervous to do so especially out in public. This is what I chose for my children and a mother’s choice is always best and should be supported. I also wanted to selfishly have beautiful images of my last baby and me in this super intimate bonding moment and I wanted to share it with other women!
Fed is always best no matter how we feed our babies, it is just important that you are giving them the very best you can no matter what way you choose!

I am absolutely in Love with Randi’s wedding dress. I seriously cannot stop looking at it. It has to be one of the most beautiful dresses I have ever seen! Now Dan and Randi, we have loved all of the time spent with you and your family, from family photos a few years ago to engagement session and now finally photographing this amazing once in a lifetime day, your wedding day. For a Roof Top Wedding in Calgary Alberta, Mother Nature was sure kind to us. I am not going to complain about how hot it was, because it could have been many other things, but Mother Nature was definitely looking out for us. This wedding day was like a fairytale, on the top of the Marriott Hotel in Downtown Calgary, overlooking beautiful downtown, Randi and Dan said I Do’s!!!
After our Stunning Bride, their beautiful little man definitely stole the show! He is so sweet and was so well behaved the whole day! For formal photos we went off to Princess Island Park and then followed that up with some photos on Stephen’s Avenue in downtown Calgary. Love the hustle and bustle of this street in the summer time.
The beautiful elegant reception was held at the Marriott Hotel and everything was perfect from the food to the decorations to the first dance! We are so honoured that these two chose us to capture their special day! Wishing you all of the best and an amazing life full of love and adventure together!

Today was an amazing day for Michael and Alexandra, a day that was a long time coming for the both of them to officially become husband and wife. These two have been together forever and have two absolutely gorgeous daughters who were a big part of their day. These two are both so kind and loving people and exceptional parents to their beautiful children. We are so honoured to have been part of this special day. What do you get when you mix Jamaican and Latin Families together??? ONE BIG Party!!! and that it was, so much fun with both of these families! You know when you have only met someone once or twice but from the moment you meet them, you feel as if you have known them forever and they make you feel as if you are part of the family! Well this is how it was with Michael and Alexandra’s families, both so welcoming!
The beautiful ceremony took place at DayBreak Church in Airdrie AB and then we went off to a lovely Airdrie acreage for some formal photos and lastly to the Apple Creek Golf Course for the Party! Alexandra was absolutely stunning today and Michael also looked pretty darn good! Their girls seriously the sweetest little things ever! Good Food as always at Apple Creek and an Awesome Dance Party oh and did I mention there was a lot of singing going on at this wedding! Michael’s Mom, and Sisters absolutely to die for voices, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful and Michael even sang a verse or two to his lovely new bride! Got to love a musically inclined family!
We ended off the evening with some awesome night time/sparkler photos which are always a lot of fun! Wishing the two of you an absolutely amazing life together full of love and blessings!
