Baby K and her Dad in Plaid | Airdrie Newborn Photographer | Airdrie, AB | Lace & Locket Photo

These sweet people booked me for a maternity and newborn package back in the summer. Mama wasn’t sure how her pregnancy would go and if she would be early so we stuck closer to home with a maternity session at Carburn Park. It was brisk but so gorgeous out. September’s weather was terrible and we lucked out with this session.

These two beautiful people waited a long time for this little gem of a girl and I was so honoured to take her photos for them. Dad asked for a special photo with babe in plaid as that’s his jam and what he always wears and it turned out adorable! She was so good for her whole session, she slept the entire time, it was a dream! I can’t wait to see them again <3

The Early Arrival | Airdrie Newborn Photographer | Lace & Locket Photography

Have you ever woken up realizing that your alarm didn't go off and you're supposed to be somewhere in 20 minutes? I feel like that's what this couple felt like when they ended up having their baby almost an entire month earlier than expected!

Erin booked me for both maternity (you can see her stunning session here) and newborn photos and we had just finished our session and while I was away in Mexico, I got a message from her with a picture of this teeny tiny little 4 lb baby and you can imagine my surprise! He wasn't due for another month! Well holy! But he was soooo cute! 

Little one needed to stay in the NICU for a couple weeks before he could come home and I waited for mama to contact me to do the photos as I didn't want to overwhelm her. So Baby B came into the studio weighing in at 5 lbs making him the second smallest baby I've photographed, and he was precious. He did so well, it was incredible! He gave me so many smiles and he slept like a dream ( for me of course, can't say the same for mom & dad!)

I am so honoured that Erin chose me for her maternity and newborn photos and I can't wait to see them again soon! <3

Rustic Baby W & the Antlers | Airdrie Newborn Photographer | Lace & Locket Photography

Baby W was one of the many babies from December that needed to be photographed twice. His first day he did so great the first hour but then after that he was wide awake and wouldn't go back to sleep. This happens. More frequently than you'd think. And in December it happened with 7 of the 9 babies I had scheduled. I had big plans for him when Mum told me she wanted something rustic so I borrowed some deer antlers from a friend of mine and I  had originally wanted to use a plaid blanket to incorporate, but changed my mind last minute and went with a navy blue. He was so sweet.

The second time I came back we did the family portion of his photos, big sister was so awesome! I have to say that when I get to do first baby photos it's a lot of fun and generally stress-free but when there's a big sibling involved it's my favourite. They're usually so excited and eager to help and curious to see what Im doing it's SO AWESOME FOR ME!!!!!! Haha. My favourite. 

Baby W's session was shot in his home using studio lights I brought with me. 

Beautiful Baby R | Airdrie Newborn Photographer | Airdrie, AB | Lace & Locket Photography

This is such a sweet family! This mama has got to have the most amazing, supportive, incredible parents who gifted her a maternity session + newborn session from me for her very first little baby who was coming in December. I was so honoured they chose me when I know there's so much amazing talent & options around for maternity and newborn photographers and yet they chose me so I wanted to provide an exceptional experience for them. 

Mama had her maternity session back in October and you can see that session here. She wore a red maternity gown from my collection and I wanted to tie the sessions together somehow - coordinate them - so I got one my favourite prop suppliers (check her Etsy page out here) to custom create a little romper + tieback set specifically for this baby before she was born. 

Sweet Baby R was the only baby in December that was born after her due date. She was also the ONLY baby that did not need to have her session reshot due to fuss or lack of cooperation. She was an absolute dream which I was so relieved about after a month of babies who didn't want to be wrapped, didn't want to sleep or settle or have me in their face with my big black camera. Her session was shot in her own home where I travelled to, in her bay window with stunningly natural, beautiful light. LOVED IT. 



Baby B | Petite Newborn | Calgary Premiere Newborn Photographer | Lace & Locket Photography | Maternity & Newborn Photographer

This session was booked by a friend for the client as a gift. The friend was a previous client whose babe I photographed last winter, and I was so truly honoured that she not only chose to come back to me BUT she purchased a session of mine for her friend. We need more folks like this! What a seriously sweet thing to do! So blessed am I to have clients like this. 

This babe was in Chestermere and I have to admit I haven't been out that way to do many sessions so I was elated for the change of scenery. I love Chesteremere. I bet that lake could use a maternity mama on it in a beautiful gown! haha! Anyways, this babe was perfect. He slept well, he was patient and his skin was flawless. Congratulations to this mama on her beautiful baby boy!
