Ryder & Jackson – THREE Years!

I can hardly believe how quickly the past three years have gone! Three years ago we welcomed Jackson and Ryder into the world – and I moved back to Wainwright! And now we are wishing these little men a very happy third birthday – and I am moving into my first house! Needless to say I have been furiously packing up boxes all day, however I felt a short break to blog the boys’ weekend long, stampede themed, birthday session was necessary! They had an absolute blast at the midway, the chucks and the parade!

Happy birthday to my favourite little men! It’s such a pleasure watching you grow up!2016-06-27_00012016-06-27_00022016-06-27_00032016-06-27_00042016-06-27_00062016-06-27_00072016-06-27_00082016-06-27_00092016-06-27_00102016-06-27_0011TeeTee is so proud! <3<3

Eden’s First Birthday – Wainwright Cakesmash Session

I can hardly believe that a whole year has passed since I met this sweet little one for her newborn session! Miss Eden is so full of spunk and it’s been such a pleasure to watch her growing up! (I even get to babysit her from time to time and she’s the cutest thing ever!)

Ryder & Jackson are TWO! – Wainwright Childrens Photography

‘Life’s tough when you’re two…’2015-07-08_0001

For future reference… sorry for these first two photos muchkins! We took my nephews out a few days after their second birthday to get some birthday photos, but the boys just weren’t wanting anything to do with the camera. They weren’t feeling 100% so it wasn’t their best ever photo day.

Now that they are feeling much better I took them out for a re-try session and had much better luck! ❤2015-07-08_0002 2015-07-08_0003 2015-07-08_0004 2015-07-08_0005 2015-07-08_0006 2015-07-08_0007 2015-07-08_0008 2015-07-08_0009 2015-07-08_0010 2015-07-08_0011 2015-07-08_0012 2015-07-08_0013

Kaycee – First Birthday Cake Smash

I can hardly believe that an entire year has flown by since I met little miss Kaycee when she was just 4 day old! As her mom and I set-up for her cake-smash session we reminisced about how it really just seemed like a couple of weeks ago I had been at their home setting up for her newborn session. I absolutely love when I get to work with families as they grow. It’s so special watching these little ones grow into such adorable little people!

HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY KAYCEE! ❤

It feels like it has been quite some time since I have updated the blog! And what’s better for a fresh post than a special birthday wish from my nephews to their Grandma! (Happy birthday from me too Mom!)

In honour of your St. Patrick’s Day birthday the minions (plus their owners…) decided to have a green themed photo adventure!

Ryder & Jackson – First Birthday Cake Smash

I feel like every year seems to go by a little faster than the year before – this year definitely takes the cake though.

And while we’re talking about cake…. Ryder and Jackson LOVED their cakes made by Colby Mainville!

Lil’ J got a little crazy with the icing and wasn’t quite sure how to react. Poor little guy was feeling a little sick for a moment or two here.

He got over it though… lol

And Mr. R was pretty keen about this whole experience – and somehow stayed ‘kind of’ clean… In comparison to his brother anyways.

This whole session lasted no more than 20 minutes – and it was 20 minutes of full laughter from everyone who was watching. It was quite the event with lots of spectators. A special thanks to the guys at the fire hall for your help with the cleanup. You guys all rock!

And another special thanks to my dad for taking some of the photos as well as these ‘behind the scenes’ shots.

Mr. R has taken to finding being told ‘No!’ pretty funny… The kid was busting a gut when I told him not to touch my WHITE backdrop with his icing covered fingers!

Happy birthday Minions! I love you as much as you kids love cake (well… probably more than that actually…)

Ryder & Jackson – 10 Month Portraits

These two honestly get more adorable every single day and it’s getting more and more difficult to narrow down the photos from their sessions!

Their 10 month session was done in two stages. Ryder was up first while his brother was having a nap!

Check out this lil’ man’s smile! It melts my heart. You can’t see it here – but he’s got his first tooth hiding in there!

Both of the boys are loving their new talent of standing – and Jackson especially loves sitting…

Lil’ J tells the most hilarious jokes. He even finds his own jokes pretty funny.

And this is officially my longest post ever… these kids need to stop being so darn cute. (I’m kidding of course!) They do need to stop growing up so quickly though! I have this funny feeling that there won’t be many more posts before they are running around in these sessions. Which means these sessions might suddenly become a little bit harder with them running around.

The face Ryder is making in the second row of this series is one of his favorites.

Also… Sorry Jackson, but this face?!!? LOL!

Easter Bunny Sessions by L Smiley Photography

I had a bunny come hang out in the studio – AND a bunch of super sweet & adorable kiddos!

With the snow melting this week it seemed like the perfect time to have some fun Easter themed sessions. Thanks so much to Miss Scarlett for lending her bunny Blueberry Muffin to me for the day! I loved my little ‘Pet for a Day’ experience.

I can hardly believe these two little munchkin men nephews of mine are already 9 months old!

And look how handsome they are becoming! ❤ I just can’t get enough of their cute factor!
