Welcome to this big world, Nora!  

I love the name Nora! Just for fun I looked up the meaning of the name, in Hebrew it means: Light and in Latin it means: Honour. Well, I was honoured to photographer this precious little babe. She sure was the shining light in the room... Mom, Dad and Grandma couldn't take their eyes on her.  I don't blame them...she's super precious! She was such a treat to photograph! :)

Liz & Kyle - thanks for having me capture your precious baby girl. Enjoy your photos! :) xo

I had the privilege of photographing the Luhowy family a few weeks back on a super gorgeous afternoon.  I live in Niverville but I've never actually done a family session in town so it was really nice doing a session in "my backyard" (really it was their backyard)! :) 

Luhowy's, I hope that you enjoy your photographs.... it was so great to meet and photograph your lovely family! :)

This little curly haired munchkin is Emrie.  Her mom is one of my amazing friends.  I absolutely love being able to watch this girl grow up....love seeing her big character coming to life!! She's a ball of fun that's for sure! I feel so honoured to be her honorary auntie.

This sweet baby girl is Lillian. I loved photographing her and her super adorable squishiness! I had the privilege of photographing her oldest brother at the beginning of my newborn photographer career and I was so honoured to be able to photograph her. At the beginning of the session we did a few family photos outdoors and it was so sweet seeing how Lillian's big brothers were interacting with her. Seriously adorable....you can tell they're going to be the BEST big brothers!! She's one blessed little sister!

Pam & Oscar, thank you so much for having me capture sweet Miss Lillian! She's so, so adorable and I just loved photographing her. Enjoy! xo

This little guy is Levi...what can I say, he's pretty special!  His momma is one of my dear friends and I was so excited when she asked me to photograph their little bundle due to arrive in July. Yup, you read that correctly...he surprised us all and arrive a month early! :)  This perfect, beautiful, little boy just couldn't wait to meet his mom & dad.  I absolutely loved photographing him...he was just oh-so-perfect! :)

Petra & Brian, thank you for having me capture your sweet little Levi! This little guy is beyond blessed to have the two of you as his parents! I can't wait to watch him grown and discover this big world! xox

This lovely little Miss is Freya Rose!

Freya Rose... doesn't her name sounds like someone famous!? Love the uniqueness of her name! So adorable!  Miss Freya wasn't a super-sleeper during her session but we managed to get her to sleep long enough to capture her super adorable sleepy self! :)  She's so precious! 

Jordyn - hope you enjoy those photos for years to come! xo

This little fella is Mason, he was such a pleasure to photograph.  I've had the honour of capturing this family multiple times in the past 4(ish) years.  Each time I'm blown away by how much the girls have grown and I always have such a blast.  Seriously, Mr. Mason is a blessed little guy to have 2 older sisters to keep him on his toes! (haha!!)

Angela & Reg, you have a beautiful family! I was so honoured that you asked me to capture your newest little bundle! Hope you enjoy these photos for years to come! xo

I met Rebecca a few years ago now while volunteering at my church's youth group.  Rebecca is one of the most fun, hilarious, loving and down to earth people I have ever met.  I feel so unbelievably blessed to call her one of my friends..she's awesome!!

A few weeks back I got to hangout Rebecca and her family to take some new family photos.  I love how fun and real this family is.  The boys are just so full of life and I loved running around capturing them being kids! :)  So many laughs with this family, so great!  ♥

Rebecca & David, hope you enjoy your photos! I had a blast capturing you and the munchkins! :) xo

NEW Branding + Website reveal

HELLO and welcome to my brand spankin' new website! :) 

I am so unbelievably EXCITED to share with you my fun, colorful, new branding!! A HUGE thank you to the wonderful and talented lady behind my NEW branding, Bonnie. Bonnie from B is for Bonnie Design is the creative talent behind the newly updated Alvina Grace Photography branding.  I worked with Bonnie back in the fall to revamp and polish up my brand.  It was a very long overdue item on my to do list and Bonnie helped me cross that one off the list in a matter of a few short weeks.

I'm a total nerd when it comes to all things pretty!!!  I love designing but this one item I really wasn't prepared to tackle myself...I had absolutely no clue what direction I wanted to go and Bonnie hit the nail on the head...it totally and completely represents me perfectly!! I love, love, love everything about my new branding, it's so FUN, colorful and pretty...I couldn't have dreamed this up on my own that's for sure! :)

I wanted to reveal my new branding before Christmas but due to circumstances beyond my control I just wasn't able to get things done.  Well I'm sort of glad I "waited" until now....because February 17th is a great day to reveal the newly revamped Alvina Grace Photography.  It was on this day 6 years ago that I took the leap of faith and registered my business.  Yay!!


I'm so very blessed to be where I am at in my business today!  When I look back at the early years (even before I officially registered my business) I have definitely come a long way...and still have a ways to go.  I'm continually learning and growing.  It feels like this journey really has just begun!  I cannot wait to see where this next year, or two, or ten take me! :)

I just want to take a moment to THANK all my AMAZING clients!  I truely feel blessed to have met each and every one of you and I cannot wait to continue capturing your momories each year!  For all the new clients to come...well, I cannot wait to meet you!! :)  Also, a HUGE thank you to all my amazing family and friends who have supported me through these past 8ish years on this journey.  It's been a slow journey at times but I'm so happy to have done this with you all by my side!! :)


Ok, so you might be wondering...what the heck did the old branding look like....well, here's a little peek at what the old branding looked like..... I'm almost ashamed to show you! LoL!!! --->


Thank you so much for popping by my new website. I hope stay a while and take a peek around! :)

Have an amazing week!!!

  I had the pleasure of photographing this lovely family just before Christmas.  Seeing as it was December and we live in Manitoba, an indoor location was a must.  I met up with them at the Hydro Building and it ended up being a super lovely day so we managed to sneak outside for a few photos.  I had so much fun with them...definitely laughed a bunch! :)

Hoogmoed Family, I hope that you enjoy these photos for years to come!  Thank you for asking me to capture your family!  I had an absolutely wonderful time spending that afternoon with you.  :)
