Edmonton Photographer | The Pandemic Post

How are you doing?

For real. How are you?

Please drop me a line (jamie[at]redwagonphotography.ca) & let me know… tell me if you’re struggling, or a funny story about working from home with your kids, or whatever happens to be on your mind.

I want to start by saying that whatever you’re feeling – it’s okay. It’s okay to be sad, or scared. It’s okay to be optimistic. It’s okay to delight in this unprecedented time with your kids. It’s okay to find them super annoying on occasion. Whatever you’re feeling at any given moment, it is okay. I go through the gamut of emotions on the daily. We need to give ourselves and others grace as we adapt. We need to be gentle & know that whatever we’re doing is enough.

You are enough. We actually are all in this together and together is how we’ll make it out the other side.

What crazy times we are living in. Like most of you, I have been processing & trying to figure out what this “new normal” requires of me… what should I be putting out there? What is allowed; what feels good and might be helpful? As a non-essential business, I am currently not photographing any sessions and am effectively closed until further notice.

So, like most things in life right now, the fourth annual Motherhood Event, which was scheduled for April 25, has been postponed until this all settles down. It will be an amazing event when it finally happens and include hair and make-up from True Beauty MakeUp Artistry, a swag bag full of goodies & access to the studio wardrobe (which has some gorgeous new pieces for you and your littles) Sign up to join me at The Yummy Light Cafe to get all the details first!

#TheFrontStepsProject | Edmonton Family Photographer

So what do you do when all your current sessions are postponed and you’ve got nothing but time on your hands?

A new house/studio to renovate – check
Netflix – check
Books to read – check
Baking – check

But, I also spent the last week organizing & photographing (& then editing!) portraits for almost 50 families for #TheFrontStepsProject in my current neighbourhood of Parkallen, as well as in Lendrum, the neighbourhood I’m moving into once our renovation on the new house is complete. If this is the first you’re hearing of the project, it is basically a series of physically distanced photographs (shot using my 70-200 lens from the sidewalk) of families on their front porches. There was no charge to participate, only a request for donations to the EdmontonFoodBank or a charity of their choice. While this project has been debated a bit on social media, I am so glad that I decided to do it. It brought SO MUCH joy & I received so many messages of gratitude, & confirmations of generous donations to a wide variety of organizations that are always in need of support; now more than ever. It felt good to be out, meeting people (from a safe distance), & doing what I love.  I think it made an impact on people’s lives; even just to have something in the calendar to look forward to.

Look at these beautiful faces!

Thank you so much, neighbours! It was lovely to create a record of love in this time of such chaos & uncertainty.

I would love to chat with you about a session. Once this over, we will need connection more than ever <3

Motherhood Photographer Edmonton

There has been so much happening around here over the past few months… I can’t wait to share all the things with you!

Yesterday I took possession of a new space – that’s right! – redwagon is moving! The new house is in Lendrum, about 5 minutes southwest of my current location. There are some (okay, SO MANY) renovations that need to be done like painting, flooring and bathroom refreshing.  I am so excited to get in there (Husband is ripping out nasty carpet and the rest of the flooring upstairs today and I am going to start prepping for painting on the main floor) and make it beautiful. If you would like to watch the progress and maybe help me make some decisions (which is not what I’m best at, so I could use the assistance) follow along on Instagram @redwagonphotography  (mostly in Stories, probably).

AND, I have a date for this year’s Motherhood Event – YAY! It’s happening April 25, and (fingers crossed) the new space will be ready in time for it to happen there, which will be amazing! Just like previous years, we’ll be celebrating motherhood by creating images that will remind you of these moments with the ones who made you mama. You’ll have access to the studio wardrobe which has some gorgeous new pieces for you and your littles. We’re also adding some amazing treats – Jess at True Beauty will be creating signature looks with hair and makeup, and I’m working on bringing together an amazing swag bag full of goodies for every mama to take home! I’m also working on something special for clients that had full sessions in 2019, so stay tuned for all the details! It’s going to be a lovely day of pampering and result in fine art portraits that become part of your family’s legacy.
