St. Joseph's Cathedral Wedding - Amie and Alex

Edmonton River Valley Wedding - Amie and Alex -

Amie and Alex's wedding was a dream to photograph! Yes, all the details were pulled together so seamlessly, and everyone looked incredible (SEN studios just has a way of ensuring everyone is radiant). The church, the venue, the flowers, they all were excellent. But more than that, the two of them were on a whole other level of happy. Along with their friends and families, they were all so excited to be getting married. 

Thank you so much for including us in your wedding day, making us feel so at home, and trusting us with your big day. Here are some of our favourites from the day!

Scade family update - We're a Family of Five!

Arlo's here! (little late in posting this now. haha, but I figured its better late than never!) He took his sweet time coming as we went to 42weeks again, but he made it safe and sound.

I thought I'd be more prepared, more confident and more collected this third time around going into labor, but once again I was humbled by the strong little force of life that is a baby.  They just have a way of forcing you to take a step back and take notice of the fact, that as much as you think you're in control, in reality, we're just along for the fantastic ride.

I was extremely nervous to get an induction. I really wanted another natural birth and was worried I wouldn't be able to handle the intensity of Pitocin. In the end, I was able to handle it, and it all worked out for the best.  If you're interested I'm happy to chat about my birth story, but I'll save you the details here. Basically, I'm proud of my body and mind.. for all its ability to accomplish, but I'm also happy with modern technology and all it has to offer.

Arlo's already proved to be different from his siblings in a variety of ways. We love him dearly, and as hectic as the change from two to three kids has been, we're excited to be entering this new unchartered territory.

I wanted to share some special images we had captured during his 'birthday' by Nicole with NC Photography and a few from our family lifestyle session with Kelsy Neilson. Having these images to look back through is incredible. I love being brought back right into those emotional blurry moments. 

Thank you so much for all the well wishes we've received from everyone so far, it's heartwarming to know we have so many people excited along with us. :)

Edmonton Birth Photography - Maeve

Photographing a birth at 41 weeks pregnant myself was not something I'd planned on doing. I'm planning to try and book a few more birth sessions this year, but only a few. :P They are extra hard to juggle when you have little kids at home. Being on call for about a month is so strange for me.. Its hard enough when its with my own birth! 

Anyways, I was thrilled to be able to make it for Maeve's entrance to our world.  I always feel so privilaged to be invited into such a sacred moment in a families life. 

Witnessing a couple work as a team and being reminded of how powerful our bodies are as women is something incredible to see, let alone photograph. There is so much to cature during this time, the time seems to stand still and fly by at the same time.

Congratulations on your beautiful little girl. She's the perfect sister for Rowan.
