Maternity - Heather

Heather is the awesome aunt of the adorable kids from the previous post. I am extremely glad that I was in Minnesota when I was, because not too long after I took Heather's maternity shots - she had a baby! Though Miss Charlie was born early, she is doing well and appears healthy and happy (at least from the photos I have seen!) It seems that I now have to try to figure out a way to get back there to take some of Charlie's baby pictures. ;-) Here are some of the shots that I enjoyed the most from my session with Heather.

These were supposed to be a set of posed pictures,
but this candid one ended up being my favourite

Families - Ashleigh & AJ

While in Minnesota, I was able to get a photo shoot done of my cousin's children. It was a pretty hectic shoot! There were 4 kids to take pictures of and we were trying to get it all done right before a birthday party was about to start! Some of the kids were more into the camera than others, but I was able to snap shots of everybody smiling. It was a ton of fun and I'm really happy with how all the photos turned out.

They were all singing Patty-Cake in an attempt to cheer up the baby

And one shot of the birthday boy pretending to
blow the candles out on his cake!

Maternity - Amie

Amie originally planned not to have any belly pictures taken because she said she wasn't far enough along. However, after seeing her for some family photos that I took, I stole her away and made her pose for a couple of maternity shots. I'm glad I did! Her stomach was the perfect size for some adorable belly-photos.

Families - Amie & Dave

While in Minnesota, I was given the pleasure of taking photos of Amie, Dave, and their son, Carson. Amie is an old family friend (she used to babysit me!) and I love that I was able to photograph them. Despite being 2 years old, Carson was a wonderful and well-behaved subject. I'd love to be back in Minnesota sometime this winter, giving me the opportunity to be able to take pictures of Baby #2 (after he/she makes his/her arrival). Who knows? It's always a possibility.

Here are some of my favourite photos from the shoot.

I love everyone's look in this one. Carson looks like he is trying to cause
some mischief - which Dave finds comical - all while Amie has the "I'm-the-
mom-so-you-listen-to-me!" expression. This is why candid shots are my
favourite shots!
