Carina and Steve asked me to photograph their family again! We met in Sherwood Park,where they live, earlier this spring. The day started with some family photos with their almost one year old, Brinley. She is ADORABLE. I was fortunate enough to be asked a while back to do their maternity photos, so it is so fun to see what a year can do to people! New parents, can I get an AMEN?!
We finished the day with a cake smash in their kitchen. Carina put together the backdrop and all of the props. She did an incredible job, every detail accounted for. She even made the cake all herself... I don't know Carina, you could maybe have a side hustle for these things. Don't miss it lower down in the blog!

I love when photography brings people together. In this case, Carina and I have known each other since our junior high volleyball days. Honestly, I was so stoked that she asked me to photograph her maternity photos for her first baby.
These two were so sweet and we had a lot of fun shooting in some amazing light that evening. Earlier in the evening there was rain but we hit that beautiful glow that follows rain. It was the epitome of 'spring.' New life and fresh beginnings.
I love any couple shoots but since becoming a mom, the maternity shoots have really got me right in the feels. There is so much sweet anticipation of that new baby coming to takeover.. I mean, enter their home. All kidding aside, I really do love the excitement that a new baby brings and when it is the first, it really is the last few moments together alone as a couple.
Since these photos have been taken, Carina and Steve have welcomed their precious baby girl into the world! Leave them your congratulations in the comments!
