Willow Grace Walker!

It is with happy HAPPY hearts that my wife and I welcome our little girl into the world. Willow Grace Walker is finally here and she's perfect! The last two weeks are a bit of a blur... between sleepless nights, many diapers, and a not-so-impressed-about-it big brother. I wouldn't change a thing though - she's a beautiful little human and I'm so thrilled to be her daddy. I can't wait to see what the next few months bring.

On a side note - let me tell you how hard the image below was to tackle. I had it all in my head... how it would look. Of course the setup was a breeze. Placing things just so... getting it ready etc. But then insert a 3 day old infant. Hungry, cranky, and not pleased to be placed on a hard floor. Let's just say by the time I was done, I was also cranky. And hungry. And sweaty. I took about 30-40 frames, and this is the only one that turned out. FYI - she's yawning, not crying. I swear ;)

Baby Willow - welcome! I love you more than you know.

Surprise Bedroom Makeover! Edmonton Interior Design Photographer

We were over at Brandi's cousins place (Charlynn & her husband, Dave) for dinner a while ago. We got talking about their bedroom, and how unwelcoming it was. They were having the toughest time choosing what they wanted to go in the room... colors, furniture, artwork etc. All of it was so overwhelming that they just kept putting it on the back burner. Enter, me. I jumped on the chance to undertake the project, and to my surprise they agreed! They gave me a budget, a few likes & dislikes, and sent me on my merry way.

Did I really just sign up for this mammoth project? Yes, and don't forget we're expecting in 2 weeks too (6 weeks when the project began), so the nursery needed finished started. I always bite off more than I can chew. No turning back now - let's do this. A month of spending, buying, returning, re-thinking etc. and the weekend arrived - ready for me to get in there and transform the space. Actually, one of the biggest transformations was the floor. Long before the project started, the decision was made to rip out the old carpet and install a beautiful new floor. I have to say, the flooring is what makes the room. It just wouldn't look the same with old carpet. By the way, everything but the flooring (and bed frame) was a complete surprise for both of them. They didn't know what I was putting in the room until it was complete.

Reveal day made it all worth it. First of all it started out with brunch - not just any brunch, but the brunch of all brunches! Add to this an outburst of happy, excited tears, followed by a tall glass of champagne and hugs all around. Worth. Every. Penny.

So enough of my rambling. Here is the master suite! (Sources and closing comments below photos).

Clean, fresh, and just the right amount of blue. I did my best to balance feminine with masculine, to appease both Charlynn and Dave's taste (it was a challenge!)

I do need to thank a couple people tho - I can't take all the credit. Tara Shumyla (a friend of ours) was the brains behind the drapery. I wanted two-tone panels, a specific length, & black-out. She did not disappoint! With left-over material she even made a throw pillow for the bed! Thank you Tara! Another huge shout-out to Darcy Casper for hanging the wallpaper. I think everyone hated me on wallpaper day... so sorry to put you through the mess! Amazing job tho - thanks! Dave's dad Kim get's applauded as well - he painted walls & trim. And one more. Julie and Eddie from Home Outfitters in South Edmonton Common pulled a few strings for me to get an awesome deal on the bedside tables. Not only that, but their kind & cheerful personalities were a bonus. Great gals - thank you!

Calero Family – Edmonton Family Photographer

This family. They are dear to my heart. I've known them for a billion years... even traveled with them to Costa Rica. I may or may not have backed into a giant bus with all three kids in the back seat - but we can talk about that another time. On to happier times, last fall I got the chance to shoot their portraits. It was hardly a job at all... it was more like a family picnic with the best of friends. Plus, we started the morning off with a bottle 2 bottles of Champagne! Talk about a great day!

Calero family - thanks so much for all the great memories over the years. I love you all and it was an absolute pleasure to shoot your family portraits.

New York City in Black & White

It will be 2 years this May. Two years since we visited the Big Apple. Somehow we were able to jam-pack a zillion activities into 5 short days. I wish we were there longer. I wish we had more time to soak it up... the smells, the food, the people... all of it. What an amazing place. I will definitely be back. Until then, I can look back at a few black and whites I shot during our stay, and reflect on our unforgettable trip. New York, New York. What a place. new york city bar nathan walker photography new york city essex house nathan walker photography new york city workers nathan walker photography new york city night nathan walker photography new york city statue of liberty nathan walker photography new york city subway nathan walker photography new york city train 34th street nathan walker photography new york city bridge nathan walker photography
