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.

turning one!

This awesome guy just turned one.

His cake was made by Hudson’s Cakery, and while I didn’t sample this cake, I did try the one to share. And it was delicious!

He is well loved by his family. His big brother is super-sweet with him.

Mother Love

Mark your calender.

On April 9 and May 10 and 17th, my mom (Mary Ann Lippiatt, of Story in My Pocket) will be doing a collaborative performance.

Mary Ann will be telling stories based on the theme, Mother Love, and I will be displaying my photographs, of mothers and children, and of flowers.

We look forward to seeing you then.

babies!!

Seems like forever since I held a baby . . . but Piyush and Rachel let me come to their house to play with their babies. Thank you!

At 19 months apart, this is the tricky shoot (the only photo I have of my children at this age together, is of the back of their heads. Lucky I like their hair).

But Kalen and Asha were super co-operative.

I LOVE this one.

Some lovely baby photos.

These two of P and K reading together were great. Kalen actually spent much of the session when I was photographing his sister playing with his bus. And then, for a change, he sat and read with his dad.

Halloween in our ‘hood

Halloween is huge in our neighbourhood. People go all out on the decorations. There is one house on 95th Street that decorates for all the seasons, and if you get off the main roads onto the side streets, there is a lot going on. A creepy little girl on a tricycle; a bower over a sidewalk, dry ice obscuring bones, monsters and zombies; a real partial cow skeleton on a porch roof. And the lovely man who hands out hot chocolate to the parents.

My kids had to come home and drop their stash half way through – because it is too heavy and I refuse to carry it for them. They were determined to stay out until midnight. We made it to 7:30 (2 hours!). My lovely renter stayed home and handed out candy to 150 (!!!) children (and a few adults, which I think is awesome.)

Here are some pictures from our adventures.

A banana – because they make him throw up. And a blow torch, just because.

And, our yard (we picked up the tortured guy at a garage sale this summer. The boys make me drive around with him in the car and go to McDonalds. Much hysterical laughing. He’s so gross.
