A tiny little Cutie...

I was so excited yesterday when Baby Ethan came over for his photography debut! It has been far too long since I held a tiny little baby in my arms and I missed it. He was a perfectly behaved little guy and just loved being wrapped up under the warm lights. We got some beautiful photos of hum and got a little creative with ideas for dad and grandma too! 

The Crafted Farmhouse Market {Mini sessions}

This weekend I had the pleasure of having a booth set up at the first Crafted Farmhouse Market in Sidney to do some mini sessions. I had so much fun meeting everyone and boy did I get some cute little baby faces come in front of my camera. It was also so lovely to photograph quite a few mothers and daughters who were shopping together, and some pretty adorable families. The market was also super amazing, lots of fabulous vendors and great food!

Here is a sneak peek of some of the beautiful faces to grace the lens of my camera this weekend! 

Happy Valentines Day!

For most holidays me and my boys like to dress up and decorate, and valentines is a great excuse for red hair and heart stickers. I have also trained them to expect a photoshoot of some kind so today I spent nap time making bowties and stringing hearts for a little after school photoshoot! 

I am one lucky lady to have these two cuties as my valentines! 

Photographer turned Glitter Magnet!

By far my favourite moments of a Fairy Session are when I show a child her first glimpse of herself as a fairy on the back of my camera, and when I pull out the glitter for the final moments of our session! 

Yesterday I had a good friend come out with me and do a few new snaps of me getting into the glitter spirit (Thanks Sara!). And boy did I ever get covered in glitter! It all started out quite innocently with a little glitter here and there and then my boys got in on the action and in seconds I had piles of  glitter stuck to me and in my hair! I'm still shedding glitter this morning. 

Hiver turns ONE!

I can hardly believe it has been a whole year since I was photographing this little cutie all new and tiny!  I have gotten so many chances to document her first year and I really enjoyed watching her grow into the beautiful little girl she is. We finally had a perfect day for photos and headed out to find some beautiful spots in the forest to photograph her, and boy did we find some delicious light! And I can't get enough of the hat that her Mom (the talented knitter behind Magpie Knitwear) made, I want it in my size! 

Chris & Kyle

Many years ago Chris and I attended photography school together and spent most of our days together, along with our classmate Sherri, trapped in dark studios, editing photos over breakfast and getting creative.

I was so honored to have her ask me to take some photos for her when she wed Kyle yesterday evening in an intimate wedding at the Union Pacific Coffee Co. There was so much love in the room, a lot of laughter and a few happy tears.

I can't wait to do some more wedding portraits of them during daylight hours! Here's a few favorites from the night.

{Kind Words...}

I love knowing that my clients love and enjoy my work and everything I do for them. It always makes my heart warm to receive a quick email of thanks, or see one of my photos framed and hanging on the wall the next time I go to photograph a repeat client. Even something as simple as scrolling through my facebook and seeing so many smiling faces in photos I've captured makes me happy.

Here are some kind words from one of my fairy mama's:

“...we finally got to sit down tonight and view your artistry...and I wish you could have been a fly on the wall to hear our ooh’s and aah’s at your handiwork. THANK YOU so, so much for giving Jordan such a special day in that gorgeous fairy dress—she had SO much fun (as did I!). You are a sweetheart, Meg, and a talented photographer whose heart matches your eye for the beauty in life. Appreciate this special moment created by your fairy dust and photographer’s magic.”

Winter Snow Fairy and Elf! {Fairy Sessions with Meg Boorman Photography}

Last week my family traveled to Banff for a Christmas celebration with my extended family. Weeks ago I had asked some of my family if they would do a snow fairy shoot and so I got all excited and put together a few outfits and packed it all up for the trip. Of course Mother Nature did not cooperate for me and it was dry as a bone in Alberta. (The snow began just after dark that evening, of course.)

Shelby, Cooper and I had a lot of fun anyways! We found a patch of ice in the woods and skated around and had some laughs. And I have even had some fun trying to photoshop the images to look like it was snowing!
