welcome to spilled milk [photography]

Thanks for stopping by! Spilled Milk Photography is a new adventure for me. As you'll see from the following posts, I love taking photos at children's birthday parties. I'm also currently building my portfolio in the areas of maternity, newborn, child and family portrait photography. If you are interested in booking a photography session with me at a "portfolio building rate", please leave a comment or send me an email to spilledmilk(at)shaw.ca by clicking here. I'd love to work with you, your children or your family to capture many beloved memories in photos.

Aaaaaarrrrgh! Owen's birthday party adventure was a boatload of fun. What a joy to capture such a special day for such a sweet little boy. Thanks for the opportunity Cath!

Here's what Owen's mom had to say about my work:

"Carolyn captures the day on film with humour, delightful candor and an artistic flair that transcends through her pictures. It is just lovely to experience my son’s third birthday over and over again with photos that evoke the spirit of the day. What a treat to discover the little moments I missed. I know my friends and family will cherish these memories as much as I will."

What fun to have the opportunity to take photos at the birthday party of such a sweet and sparkling little girl. Nora has a personality brighter than her awesome pink and orange retro print dress. What a complete delight. Thanks Linda and Brad!

Rhoan is such a handsome little lad that it was impossible not to capture some great shots of him at his birthday. I just loved everything about this day: the wonderful guests, the awesome hosts (thanks Kerri and Peter), the fun painting activity, the yummy cake and of course, the delightful birthday boy. Fun was had by all!

Here's what Rhoan's mom had to say about my work:

"Our son's first birthday was a blur to me. I have so few photos because I was too preoccupied with being a good host to take any. I vowed that his second birthday would be different. I wanted him to have great photos to remember the importance his family and friends placed on his big day. If left on my own, it would have been a repeat of the previous year because, I was just as busy entertaining on his second birthday. Thanks ever so much to Carolyn and her candid, natural and beautiful shots of our birthday boy and all of our guests. I now have a visual story to tell my son in years to come. We also have gorgeous photos for framing and gifts. I love to look at those photos often and remind myself of a happy day for our family."
