A + J Expecting :: Calgary Maternity + Newborn Photographer

I got to meet up with this couple Saturday evening, for their session. It was such a lovely evening… warm but not hot, which is perfect when you are photographing someone who is pregnant! They brought along their first “child”, this adorable and energetic cocker spaniel.  I just love it when clients want to incorporate their pets into their session. I can’t wait to see these these three again when baby is here!

  • Allison - Love these photos…. Can’t wait to see the rest!!!ReplyCancel

  • Dawn Cooper - These are so beautiful, Robyn! Love that lighting, and what a happy couple!ReplyCancel

self portrait 5:12 :: calgary lifestyle photographer

It is time for my monthly project called self portrait 12 times.  If you missed it the previous months the general idea is to take a self portrait capturing our relationships with our children, significant other, family, pet, best friend, or ourselves.

These images were taken on Mother’s Day… my husband willing offered for us to take some family pictures (this has NEVER happened).

It was a really great day… I was treated to breakfast in bed, then we went for a picnic in the park, followed by some pictures, then to Marble Slab for some ice cream for the girls, home to relax and then some Vietnamese take out! It was just perfect!

I hope you all mommy’s and mommy’s to be had a really wonderful day as well!

Now please pop over to my friend Jessica Engert of Laughinghouse Photography from Orlando, Florida and see her this month!

  • Lily Theriault - Great pictures Robyn, as usual…and although I don’t post much, just to reassure you, we are so very proud of you.
