The upside of blogging almost a year later is getting to look back on some of the really awesome sessions, like this fab family of five!
ML is also a photographer, check out her work at www.mlyoungphotography.com. It’s always a treat to shoot a photographer’s family, posing is second nature. Enjoy!

It is always an honour to be featured but this one has special meaning for me. Cosmoplitan.com contacted me when they saw this image and asked if it could be part of an article they were working on about breastfeeding, I immediately said “Yes!”. Lindsay, one of my best friends, nursed this little guy for about 33 months, sharing a very special bond together. I’m still nursing Lex at 15 months and plan to for a while longer but haven’t made any definitive plans to stop until I know it’s right. I’m so grateful for the time I nursed my little ones, it’s a precious time I will hold dear to my heart forever. Thank you Cosmo for curating such a powerful collection of images, capturing the beauty of motherhood and nursing!

We’ve been friends for nearly 17 years, Kendra is one of my very best friends and I’m so lucky to have her in my life. Now, this sweet little girl will know all about the strength of her mama’s love, the lengths she will go to protect and care for her, the tears she will cry out of pure happiness and joy. I really couldn’t think of two people who would make better parents than Kendra and Wade. I’m over the moon happy for them and I’m so excited to be “aunty” Alicia.

It’s just around the corner… Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful, hard working mamas out there! I’ve had the pleasure of capturing so many wonderful moments of mama-love. It’s an absolute joy to be able to witness these tender embraces, kisses and laughter between a mother and her child or children, I can’t get enough. As a mother I understand the love, from the moment these little beings are born our world changes.

“Making the decision to have a child—it’s momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking outside your body.” ~Elizabeth Stone

A beautiful mama, a strong husband and a handsome boy are about to welcome a little person into their world. We decided to celebrate with a snowball fight on a gorgeous winter day. I can’t wait to capture more amazing moments of them as their family goes from three to four.
