Hi friends! It’s been so quiet over here on my blog these past several months.  I decided to take some time out for my family and enjoy the rest of summer with my little ones and my husband. We had such a beautiful and (very) hot summer here in Calgary so it would have been a shame to spend it inside on a computer… can you really blame me haha 😉 Now that summer has come and gone and we are into well into fall, I’ll be getting back to business and catching up on the blog life. Is there a hashtag for that? #backtothegrind #bloglife


Now onto this sweet mama…

At the end of October, I had a maternity session with the sweetest family expecting their second little baby. Meet Calgary’s newest mama, Rita and her family.

When Rita contacted me to do her maternity pictures for her and her family, she had a vision for what she wanted for her maternity portraits to be like. She envisioned beautiful maternity photos in the park down by the water. There is something so serene about an expectant mama standing down by the water that I just absolutely love!! It’s a beautiful thing when art and a vision come together, and I was so honoured to make that happen for her. Now only if it was summer and the water was warmer – I can see all the endless possibilities of beautiful maternity pictures that the lush Calgary parks have to offer for photographing in.

The day of their maternity session turned out to be a really nice fall day. When we met at the location of their session, I was met with such a sweet happy family. Shortly after our session began the wind decided to make an appearance and say hello. They braved the breezy Chinook winds and we got some amazing photos of mama down by the water, them together, mama with her little love, and as a family of three before they became a family of four.

And look how sweet older brother is?! He definitely melted my heart.

Mama had her eyes on a couple of maternity gowns that I have in my client wardrobe closet, that she had her heart set on wearing for her session. I’m always happy to provide my clients with these beautiful gowns to make them feel gorgeous during their maternity session and give them those stunning maternity portraits to remember their pregnancy by. When you hire me as your maternity and newborn baby photographer, this is one of the added perks to becoming a Honey Heart Photography client that only adds to your maternity experience. And, I’m always adding new selections of maternity gowns and other heirloom items, like soft-knitted newborn and baby props, to my client collection to style your session with and for clients to use.

Meet sweet baby Emily. I welcomed this gorgeous baby girl into the studio at the end of May — I’m a bit behind on my blog posts, as you can tell.

Baby girl wearing knitted angora bear bonnet in blush pink Calgary Alberta Newborn Photography sessionpinimageEmily’s aunt, who is a friend of mine, reached out to let me know that she had a brand new niece that was just born and wanted to know if I would be able to do newborn photos for her sister. I’m always so grateful when clients and friends refer their family and friends to me. It’s the biggest compliment that an artist, and a small business owner can receive and I appreciate them so much! Emily’s mom to contacted me shortly after that and it was so easy to connect with her. We set up her newborn session for a few weeks later and started planning the details of styling and colour choices.

The day of her session, Emily arrived at the studio with her mom, dad and two older siblings. When it comes to family, there is nothing like the unconditional love that a mom and dad have for their precious child. And, there is nothing else like the bond that siblings have with each other. Emily is so lucky to have her two older siblings to look out for her, to grow with and to bond forever with.

She was so petite and so sweet, and she completely melted my heart.

When it comes to newborn photography, it’s always better to reserve your newborn session in advance of your baby’s birth to ensure that I can get you in on my schedule. I always try my best to accommodate clients who haven’t found me until after baby has been born, but to ensure that I’m available for your session, you are encouraged to book while you are still pregnant. So if you are expecting a baby this year (…or next) and thinking about a newborn session get in touch with me and let’s plan out your newborn session.

If you are looking for a maternity and newborn photographer, I’m your girl! I would love to dream up and plan out the details of both your maternity and newborn sessions with you!

Ashley is a Calgary AB Newborn Photographer who specializes in posed newborn photography.

Time to light the birthday candles!!

This week marks the two year anniversary of Honey Heart Photography! Two years ago, I officially launched my business. It seems like yesterday that I was putting my business name out there to my family, friends and my clients and that I was doing my first newborn session. It’s crazy how fast two years has flown right by and how much my business has grown.

The journey from then to now has been amazing!! It’s been full of hard work, lots of learning and perfecting my art, connecting with and making friends with industry people, building relationships with my clients, and photographing my heart out to some of the most beautiful bellies and newborn babies that Calgary has had to offer. I love what I do and I’m so lucky to be a part of so many new beginnings of motherhood for a mama, parenthood for the soon-to-be parents, and the new life of a newborn baby. I’ve been able to photograph friends, family members and new parents-to-be who I didn’t know beforehand but quickly became wonderful friends.  I’m so happy when I get to make connections with my clients during their session, and build those connections into friendships afterwards.

Without my son, the name ‘Honey Heart’ wouldn’t be there, but if it weren’t for my incredibly supportive husband and family, my business wouldn’t exist at all. It is because of them and how incredibly supportive they are of me and my dream to do photography professionally that I’ve been able to start my business, and put the time and effort in to watch it grow. I’m so thankful that they are my biggest fans in life and in business.

Cheer’s to the Two Year Birthday: From Then & Now

A few months ago, I had an out-of-town mama with a unique situation contact me about doing maternity photos for her. Due to some pregnancy complications she was here in Calgary staying with relatives while she waited on the arrival of her newest little one.

Although, not an ideal way to spend your pregnancy away from home and your husband and young son, Heather made the most of it and not only did we plan out the details of her maternity portraits to pass some of the time, but we also got to know each other on a personal level and connected as moms.

For her maternity session, we arranged it to fall during a weekend when her husband and son would be here visiting her so we could include some sweet big brother and dad-to-be photos. The weekend of Heather’s session was forecasted to be a beautiful spring evening and with her husband and son coming to document these moments with her, I was anticipating a session full lots of hugs, kisses and laughter. Days ahead of our session brought an expected change of plans, and her husband and son we’re not able to make the 8 hour drive that weekend to see her. Because pregnancy is an experience that we are blessed with for such a short amount of time, we went ahead with her maternity session and focused on some mama only and belly photos so she didn’t miss those moments.

Heather is a stunning mama and we got some amazing photos of her loving on her belly. Though, it’s unlikely I will have the opportunity to meet her newborn baby and do newborn photos for them, it was an honour and I was extremely happy to capture those maternity moments for her and bring some happiness to her, in what I’m sure was a hard situation to get through.

If you are booked for newborn photos but unsure about maternity as well because you don’t enjoy being pregnant or don’t think you will want to remember those times, I encourage you to visit my maternity portfolio to get a sense of how beautiful and adoring your beautiful pregnant self really is and what kind of maternity portraits that we could achieve. I would be honoured to preserve these memories for you. I frequently look back on my own maternity photos and very fondly remember the pure love and excitement that my husband and I shared while we waited for our baby.

If you are looking for a maternity and newborn photographer in Calgary, take a look at this exclusive gift I’m giving to my clients. I would love to be your maternity and newborn photographer!

Say hello to Baby Macee!  You could say that Macee is my newest little niece. You know when you have a long-time friend that is so close to you that they are more like family, and you spend so much time together that their family becomes your second family… well, it goes a little something like that. 😉

Macee is baby number three for my best friends sister and her husband.

At the end of March, we took a little weekend road trip to Kamloops, B.C. to spend time with family and friends, and to meet Macee at her baby shower. Not only did we get to meet our friends new baby girl, but they got to meet our youngest for the first time too. It was a weekend full of babies!

I was so blessed to be able to do newborn photos for them of their new baby girl. As a studio newborn photographer, being away from home and without my studio equipment or my props within arms reach brought on a completely new experience for me doing newborn photography. I am so used to my dedicated studio space and equipment. Sometimes you have to just make do with what you’ve got (or in my case, with what I could bring with me and fit in our vehicle) and you have to give it your all. So that’s what I did. With my camera, a flokati rug and a handful of my newborn baby girl props, I got to work my magic and was able to capture some oh-so adorable newborn portraits of little Miss Macee <3

Pinks, knits, lace and pearls… that’s what little girls are made of <3
It was so fitting for her, and as you can see, it was a simple newborn photography session kind of way 😉

Macee wasn’t so sleepy when we first started her session, but she was as calm and relaxed as can be. After a little break to do some extended family photos for my best friends family, a good feed, some mama and dad love, and her looming afternoon nap, she slept like a dream for the rest of her session! She was so peaceful and sweet!

It was an honour to be able to capture newborn photos for such a long-time friend of mine and her husband. I can’t wait to see Macee grow and face the world with love and laughter like her two older siblings! <3
