We are always excited when Mommy Connections has a new mom and baby class because this means we get the opportunity to photograph the new mom’s with their little ones. This time we visited 2 classes that started in October which are put on by Katherine Dolan the Director of Mommy Connections Calgary and her team.
Early Friday morning the family all gathered at the Maxwell family home in Springbank, just outside the Calgary city limits. It has been almost almost 5 years since the whole family has been together and it would mark the first time many of the grandkids met each other. With all of that their parents Don and Theresa were celebrating 50 years of marriage. A perfect time to capture the fun and playful camaraderie that each of their family members have with each other, something that was quickly adopted by the grandchildren.

Our shot was to photograph their son who had just turned one and after we were finished at their home we made our way to a near by green space to round out the photos.
We have now had the pleasure of providing the Bauer family with their annual family photos out in Okotoks for five years. Every year we take them out to a tree just south of Calgary where we photographed them for their Engagement session. A tradition started five years ago now has a photo filled with a son and a daughter, with their mom and dad.

Ten minutes later the cake looked like a deflated balloon as Reagan had mashed every part of the cake and then let mom know it was time to head home.
