Since the beginning of the human race, women have been breastfeeding their children, and breastfeeding is a beautiful thing. It builds a bond with your baby that is unmatched. That’s not to say that bottle feeding your baby is a bad thing- sometimes that it your only choice or the choice that is better for your family dynamic.

I choose to breastfeed my baby. I was devastated when, at 4 weeks old, I could no longer breastfeed my son. My milk had ceased to produce and I was forced to bottle feed him formula. Formula had no ill effects for my child. He took to formula with a gusto that he has continued to have for everything in his 14 years of life.

August 1st to 7th is World Breastfeeding Week. It is a proud tradition that was started in 1991, and has been celebrated every year since. While breastfeeding in public is often met with stares, ignorant comments, and in the age of the internet, shaming, millions of men and women worldwide are fighting to change the stigma. We live in a world that has love, gender fluidity, and a vast number of other human conditions, all fighting for acceptance, and breastfeeding acceptance should be high on that list.

In the spirit of entering the fight, I give you The ‘Breastfeeding Is Beautiful’ Project. My hope for the project is to find 5-10 women who, like me, are willing to join the fight for our children, for ourselves, and for future generations. It’s up to all of us to aid in fighting the breastfeeding stigma. The project will feature women breastfeeding their child(ren) as nature has intended. This will be a photographic project, so please be aware that any images captured during the project will be published to social media, as well as submitted to breastfeeding organizations for possible publication. While there is no specific age when a mother should stop breastfeeding their child, the project is limited to children 3 years of age and younger. Mothers of any age who are currently breastfeeding are welcome, though please be aware that should you be interested in participating and are under the age of 18, a parent or guardian must sign for you to participate. Everyone that chooses to participate will be required to sign a service agreement and a model release.

My hope is to begin capturing the photographs for the project as soon as possible. Featured will be a series of individual mothers with/breastfeeding their child(ren), with a finale featuring every participant in a group.

For more information or to join the project, please email me here.

Together we can fight the stigma.

2015 graduates, it’s your time to shine!

With graduation on the horizon, it brings on a whole bunch of emotions- happiness, fear of the unknown, sadness that your leaving your friends, and excitement about the future possibilities.

Graduation signifies the end of an era, and the beginning of a brand new stage in your life. Regardless of your future plans, your life is changing.

I’m a firm believer in making memories, and preserving them in print.

The Senior Portrait Experience is for every high school senior. Part of the experience is showing the world who you are- your favourite places, your style, your BFF, your little sister, brother or fur baby, your lifestyle. The other part of the experience are the memories and the immortalization of who you are today. And who you are today, is a very important milestone.

Senior Portrait Experiences are tailored to you. They accommodate every senior.

If you’re a senior and attend DVSS, see Zaynah Chomas for one of her senior rep cards- not only do they have all the details as to how to reach me, they are also a discount card for any senior Collection I offer. Though the card may say it has expired, I will still honour the discount until July 1st, 2015.

If you do not attend DVSS, but are interested in my Senior Portrait Experience, you can email me here, find me on Facebook here, call or text me at 403-820-4164, and I’ll get you set up. For those of you on Instagram, you can follow me here– I’m always posting photos from various sessions, as well as discounts, and giveaways.

I can’t wait to hear from you, and help make your senior year unforgettable.

Memorable Moments By Lindsey, Lindsey Gaehring, mothers day, mother, daughter, Drumheller family photographer, Drumheller photographer, Newcastle Beach, spring

Can we talk about mother’s for a moment?

Mothers are very special people- they carry us inside them for 9 months, they go through hours, and sometimes days, of labour to birth us. They spend sleepless nights while we’re cranky, colicky, teething. Up every couple of hours to feed us, and take care of us. They teach us to walk, to talk. They cry on the first day of kindergarten. They drive through wind, rain, and snow storms, to get us to our sporting activities. They scream the loudest whether we win, or we lose. They’re there for our triumphs, and our failures. They’re there when we have our first crush, our first love, and our first heartbreak. They’re there through good decisions and bad. They teach us about love- to love ourselves and those around us, about acceptance. They teach us about life, responsibility, and tolerance. Yes, mother’s are very special people.

For the special woman in your life, this Mother’s day, treat her to a Mother’s day mini session so your mother, and your family, have those memories to hold  for a lifetime. Mothers with their children, grandmothers with their grandchildren- let’s celebrate all mom’s.

Mother’s Day mini sessions run the entire month of May at a special discounted price.

To inquire about, or book a Mother’s Day mini, please e-mail me at info@memorablemomentsbylindsey.com.

I look forward to meeting the special mother in your life.

When I found the wonderful Zaynah on Facebook, I was thrilled when she agreed to meet with me to hear about the Senior Rep program I offer. I was over-the-moon when she signed on as a rep for the 2014/2015 school year for the Drumheller Valley Secondary School.

Zaynah’s interests and activities are many- she plays volleyball competitively year round, attending clinics around the province, and has been the captain of her team this year. She has also discovered a newfound love for rugby. Motocross plays a big part in her life. Having rode since she was a girl, Zaynah can often be found at the DORVA track, flying high in the sky on her dirt bike. Zaynah passes many hours riding the horses her family owns, as well as playing with the dogs, and may other animals on her family’s farm.

Zaynah is also very active in her school- she is part of the student council, and an avid supporter and participant in the schools ‘Friends of Rachel’ program, helping to motivate, educate and bring positive change to the young people in her school. ‘Friends of Rachel’ urges students to practice compassion and kindness to stem school violence. More information about the ‘Friends Of Rachel’ clubs and programs can be found here. Zaynah also donates her time to a local charity, ‘The Morgan Jayne Project’, raising money through various fundraisers and activities. ‘The Morgan Jayne Project’ is a non-profit, non-denominational, staffed by volunteers, organization devoted to fighting the AIDS epidemic in Roatan, Honduras. Their major focus is on reducing the incidence of mother to child transmission of the virus both at birth and via breast milk. More about ‘The Morgan Jayne Project’ can be found here.

Zaynah’s headed off to college to receive her practical nursing diploma once she graduates, and has already received an early admission into Red Deer College.. Once her degree is complete, she will move on to further education to become a Registered Nurse.

When we started to plan Zaynah’s experience, she immediately said she wanted to host the session on her family’s farm. “I chose my farm, because that’s where I grew up and looking back at the pictures it will be a real reflection of my senior year.”

I originally asked her to describe her style, she replied “My style can range from a hipster look with leggings, baggy pullover’s and infinity knit scarfs; to very country with jeans, hoodies, bass pro hats, cowboy hats, my big belt buckles, plaid button ups – and of course my favorite, my cowboy boots.” True to her style, we captured her just like that, long sweaters and leggings, blue jeans and a sweater, and her true cowgirl style, complete with her cowgirl hat.

Zaynah’s biggest concern is that she would look and feel awkward. “I was worried that things would be awkward, but it didn’t take long to get over that!”

Her advise for anyone preparing to have their senior portrait experience is “Bring things that reflect who you are and how you really would dress. And have lots of ideas because Lindsey could for sure make them come to life! Memorable Moments By Lindsey is a great company to get your photos done by. She listens to what you want and has great advice on how to make the pictures look great.”

When Zaynah was asked to describe her overall experience, she enthusiastically replied “It was great! Everything that I wanted came to life! I was shown good ways to stand, sit and position myself so that I didn’t look awkward, stiff or out-of-place. I felt a little awkward at the beginning but it took no time to warm up to the camera with Lindsey behind it. The images turned out amazing, me and all of my friends loved them!”

I had a blast with Zaynah capturing her images- and these are just the beginning. These images were captured for her senior rep materials. As a senior rep, Zaynah will also receive a full 2 hour session in the spring. So just when you thought it couldn’t get better, oh yes, it sure does. Take a peek at the gorgeousness we created, and don’t forget to head up to the ‘Subscribe’ button to be in-the-know when her full senior photo session hits the blog in May.

For an in-depth look at Zaynah’s session, and for peeks into other sessions, check out my YouTube channel.

Memorable Moments By Lindsey, Drumheller photographer, Drumheller tween photographer, portrait photographer, tween, sparkles, Drumheller, Wayne AlbertaHere at Memorable Moments By Lindsey, it’s time for another model call, for a pair of tween girls, BFF’s, and a baby! So, with no further adu, let’s jump into the specifics!

Now that the tween division of MMBL has been launched, I am looking for:

A pair of  ‘Best Friend Forever’ tween girls (10-13) for a best friend session. This is at a to-be-determied location(s). Both girls should be prepared with 2-3 outfits that will be determined by myself and the girls. Tween/parents are responsible for make-up application and hairstyling for the session, per direction. Both girls must have a parent or guardian sign a Client Service Agreement and a Model Release allowing the usage of the images for marketing and promotional use. From the session, each girl and their family will receive 5 Hi-Resolution images with a print release.

I’m not just looking for a baby, I’m looking for a soon-to-be mom:

This portion of the call is a little more difficult, and a lot more demanding. I’m seeking a soon-to-be- mom who would be willing to have her birth story photographed, from labour through delivery. The soon-to-be mom would need to sign a Client Service Agreement, as well as a Model Release allowing the images to be used for marketing and promotional use. From this particular call, mom would receive 25-35 Hi Resolution images with a print release. This does mean a little more time investment beforehand from the participant, but the results are oh so rewarding.

As always, please inquire about unlisted opportunities- you just never know what I might be looking for, maybe even you!
