Dragonfly Photography Blog  |  Photography by Rebecca Lippiatt  |  Edmonton, Alberta Canada Family and Lifestyle Photography bio picture
  • I specialise in lifestyle photography. Life is messy and grand, beautiful and challenging, and every one of those moments is precious. This is what I look for and what I photograph. This is what I want you to remember, when you look at your photographs years from now - how your heart was so big it felt like it would explode.

I have a way with the boys

This family came to see me for fall photos – they hadn’t had family photos before – and now they do!

Boys can be tricky – I have two. I know. But Hunter and Ethan were on their best behaviour and we got the “looking at the camera” photos out of the way in about 5 minutes. They were amazing (and apparently the rest of the time were just like mine – wild:)). I must have picked up a few skills on this parenting journey.

They are sweet, and loving and funny (and isn’t Joanne beautiful!?!).

Little boy with a tree! And dancing (to Gangnam Style).

Another little boy with a car – and his favourite colour is purple.

And when they are not fighting, they adore each other. (I did however see no evidence of the fighting.)

Their beautiful parents

Thank you so much for coming to see me! You were all wonderful.

Nicola

She’s almost 7. Seven – how does that happen?! It is always my priviledge to photograph Nicola and Reshawn.

Nicola is turning into an amazing person. She LOVES little creatures – mice, squirrels, birds – and dashes off at the drop of a hat to find them. She’s so intrigued by them – her whole self heading off in search of the little things.

The many faces of Nicola (look at that forehead!!

That is a magpie nest in the background that Nicola requested a picture of.

And maybe a teeny bit of bribery. And counting the shutter snaps (just look in the camera and tell me when I get three shots!)

And . . . the love. Always the love

Fall family photos

The one time of year in Edmonton we can pretend we’re at the ocean . . . .

Walks, trains and princess dresses

This is my third year photographing this awesome family.

On a cold windy day in Calgary, we went for a hike. And this is what happened.

First. They posed beautifully.

And were super cute

Then we tried family pictures
One, two, GO!!

Daddy is pretty heroic (and strong! – that was a big hill.)

Mama love

And home. Declan loves trains, and Toni is in a princess stage. Stage! Phase! But she did love to pose in her dress. And help her brother with the book.

This shoot was a little all-about-Declan. Which is good, because last year he cried. This year was dimples.

Thank you again for inviting me to Calgary! It was wonderful to see you.

Relationship, gratitude and fall family photos

Way back when I first started my business, Angela and Geoffrey took a chance with me and let me photograph their wedding. Thank you!!

Seven years and two children later, here they are.

They have made two amazing, gorgeous, fun and energetic children.

There is a whole lot of fun and laughter in this family.

It was so good to see you again, in real life . . . but I am grateful for the interwebs for allowing us to maintain our friendship. You are wonderful!
