  • Welcome to my blog.

    This is the place where I'll post peeks from my sessions as an Edmonton Child and Baby Photographer and share random musings from my life as a mom to five of the most precious girls ever. So grab a coffee and enjoy. Come back and visit often. And of course, leave me a comment. I love receiving comments!

    Update: I'm currently booking for Fall 2016.

    I'm pleased to be part of one fabulous association NAPCP, accrediting professional photographers who choose to specialize in babies and children.

    Thanks for stopping by,


the tangible holiday giveaway with golly gee baby | shop local

It’s the fourth and final segment of the tangible holiday giveaway, featuring local products that are perfect for under the tree (and year around too, might I add).

It is such a pleasure to include Golly Gee Baby in this giveaway! Based out of Stony Plain, AB, Golly Gee! Baby is owned and operated by Christina, a stay at home mom with two adorable girls! All of their products are ethically manufactured or handmade with care & fully “baby-tested” and approved. Snappy ties, bitty boots, bubble and peasant dresses, fliptastic change mats and Mod Mommy bags are just some of the trendy items available.

These images are from a fashion shoot for Golly Gee Baby this past June. Despite the blowing wind and rain, we managed to sneak some smiles out of these beautiful kidlets. Didn’t they do great?
It tickles me pink that GGB designs are manufactured by The Fair Trade Zone in Nicaragua.

In 1998, Nicaragua was devastated by Hurricane Mitch and a urbanization west of Managua (the capital of Nicaragua) called “Nueva Vida” (New life) was formed. With an unemployment rate of over 80% in the community, an idea emerged to start a sewing co-operative for women in the neighborhood.

The original workers spent many hours building the factory by hand. In 2001, the co-operative was officially formed. The workers each own a part of the co-operative, making them committed to providing good working conditions for the people in their urbanization.

The Cooperative’s dreams for the future include having enough work to give full-time jobs to more families in their community.

(The image below is not property of tangible moments, and is courtesy of Golly Gee Baby.)

Golly Gee Baby goodies can be purchased from the website, or click here for a list of retailers across Canada.

Christina has graciously donated a Mod Mommy Bag for the Tangible Holiday Giveaway!

Every modern mama needs an all-purpose bag in a funky print! Our diaper bag features beautiful 100% cotton designer fabric and is fully lined. It has 2 elastic pockets on each side of the bag interior for holding bottles, toys, spoons… you name it! It’s finished with perfect pleats and handles long enough to swing over Mommy’s shoulder.

Dimensions: 14″ (36 cm) wide, 14″ (36 cm) high, 3″ (8 cm) deep.

Mod Mommy Bags are a Golly Gee Baby original design and ethically produced by The Fair Trade Zone in Nicaragua.
