Forever Captured Photography bio picture

 I am Sheila, the photographer at Forever Captured Photography. I am a newborn photographer in Saskatoon sk as well as a Calgary Newborn Photographer.

I am a mom to four boys and one girl.. We have a house full of love and chaos. I have a love for Pepsi Max and a weakness for chocolate swirl cheesecake.

My style of photography leans to an artistic and dramatic side which creates works of arts out of the portraits I create that make them timeless and have created strong emotional feelings when they have been viewed.

The main focus of my photography is Newborn Photography. There is something special that happens at newborn sessions.. a sense of calm. It takes time, experience, patience and love to capture newborns.

As a mom of five and after photographing over 100 newborns I am confident we will capture amazing images of your precious baby.

Thank you for considering Forever Captured Photography to capture your moments...

Take care

Sheila

The Perfect Gift - Saskatoon Newborn Photographers

The gift of photography is one of the most perfect gifts one can receive from someone. A timeless gift that will go on through the family for years to come.
I got to capture this little man’s first photos. I am always honored when I get that opportunity.
The month of October is a busy one with the arrival of new babies. I can’t wait to meet all of them. Every October seems to be a newborn baby boom in Saskatoon! I am so grateful for those that choose me to photograph their new little sweethearts!

Sometimes You Get it All | Saskatoon Newborn Photographers

Sometimes you get a session where everything goes according to plan. Well ok let’s be honest. With newborn sessions you can’t really have a total plan because baby totally runs the show. You see they eat poop burp and sometimes sleep in between lol.
This little guy did a Petit Session which is new to Forever Captured and he did amazing.
A Petit Session is a 2 hour session and you get 15 digital files with this collection.
Please message if you would like more information on a newborn session with Forever Captured Photography.

She is So Beautiful! | Saskatoon Maternity Photographers

This momma to be is so beautiful and it just came naturally. From her beautiful red long locks to the tenderness and carefree spirit she showed through our session.
I can’t wait to meet this little one! I hope deep inside that baby has red hair too! High chances as mommy said her mom, dad and brother all have red hair too.
We were going to just have an indoor session but I asked her if she would be willing to step outside for a few too.
I had just gotten the gown recently and wanted to try it out outside and she was more than willing to go along with my ideas.
Pretty pleased with what we captured :)

Studio Space | Saskatoon Newborn Photography

Some pretty exciting changes with me. We moved in fall that allowed me to have an office space as well as a studio space :)

I will still go on location but also have a studio space that I am totally in love with. When you come to the studio you have all the props at your hand to choose from and we can have a couple of setups going on at the same time and all I have to do is move my lighting.

I used to think I didn’t want a space but well. Sometimes I am slow to change. I am so IN LOVE!

I also now offer Petit Newborn Sessions in Studio for those that want to spend less time and have a smaller budget but still want gorgeous pictures of their sweet new baby.

Here are a couple of pictures to give you an idea of the space!

If you are on the search for a Newborn Photographer in Saskatoon please send me an email at forevercapturedphotography@yahoo.ca or call 306-221-5290 and let’s set up a time for you to come in and chat and take a peek around the studio!

There is a new Grandma in Town | Saskatoon Newborn Photographers

There is a new Grandma in town and that Grammy is Me! On January 5th my first grandchild a baby girl was born. Who knew that your heart could grow to a whole new level of love… My heart is overflowing with gratitude and love for this new special being.
I am so proud of my son too! My baby boy is now a father. It’s just so hard to even believe! Mommy and Daddy are doing so awesome! This little girl is in awesome hands with these two!
2017-02-17_0003

I have to admit when we did the maternity photos Mommy freaked over a bug big time and I was pretty concerned how she would handle a baby with poop and all lol.. But she has eased into motherhood like it was what she was born to do. I am very proud of her :)

2017-02-17_0002

Watching my son with his little girl is amazing! He has always had a huge protective heart. He too has eased into his role like it was just meant to be.

2017-02-17_0001

She has certainly changed our family. It is so cute to see my youngest have her as his screensaver on his phone… and my daughter tear up as we watched her slideshow last night..
Our hearts are all full and we love little Chloe so much!

Here is a link to her slideshow from her photo sessions with Grammy…

Reflections of 2016 | Saskatoon Newborn Photographers

As I settle in for what is sure to be a bitter cold week weather wise I am grateful to be inside.
2016 was a year filled with business goals. I was going to be the best at this and improve immensely with that.
It was filled with disappointments and tears and why is this happening to me.
It had big wakeup calls.
It also involved a move which I was worried about because I didn’t want to move unless I loved the new place as much as I loved the home we were in.
Let me tell you I more than LOVE the new place because it is so wonderful.
It has given me an office outside of my bedroom. I have a desk instead of my dresser.
I have a sanctuary in my bedroom and it is amazing.
I also now have a studio and could not be more excited and happy with it. I would like to welcome all my previous clients to stop by and check it out sometime.
I would like to have an open house in it within the new year sometime.
2016 was also a year of self discovery and personal growth. I went deep into the past to find out the what and the why to my business.
I met new clients and reconnected with previous clients.
I want to thank each and everyone of my clients that took the time to contact me and connect with me and work with me to capture beautiful pictures of what has the most important meaning to you.
Thank you , Thank you , Thank you

There Is Nothing Like A Mother’s Love | Saskatoon Newborn Photographers

As I get older and look around and realize more and more the strength of a mother’s love. There are no boundaries and no lengths a mother won’t go through for her child.
As I edit this session you can see the glow and pride in this new mommy to be and I smile as I edit each picture. This little one is one lucky child to have a mother that already loves them so much.

Oh My Goodness | Saskatoon Newborn Photographers

Big sister is not even two years old and so so very proud of her new baby sister. She was the light of the day and continuously put a smile on my face.

Baby sister did make me work at the beginning and she finally really settled in towards the middle of our session. I absolutely adore the shot we got of the two sisters together and this will be a very special keepsake.

One thing I have been learning over the summer is how important we are as mothers and the impact we have on our children and how much we truly touch their lives even if we feel like are failing every step of the way. With my own mom this spring having some health situations I realized how very important she is to me. And it made me think that when my kids say they love me they truly do mean it.

The saddle and bear in the shot with big sister belonged to Daddy’s mommy. The bear was made out of her fur coat so that each of her children had a keepsake in memory of her.
When we were talking about this and how important mom’s are mommy had a tear in her eye talking about daddy and his love for his mom. It was special and it showed how dearly and loved he is by his wife.
It was a special day and I enjoyed every minute of it!
Thank you so much for allowing me to spend the day with your family!

For Michael - My Why | Personal | Forever Captured Photography

I rearranged my bedroom / office today. It gave time as I found items to reflect. I went through a huge personal growth week in the last couple of weeks that hugely impacted me and gave me an A-Ha lightening bolt shock to my thoughts.
You see for a while now I have been wondering what my “Why” is to why I am so passionate about Newborn Photography. During an excercise in trying to find my why it was presented with 3 questions and only one would be the “one”
That morning I read my life story I had written out and the question that affected me was What Life Altering Situation affected you so deeply. And BAM I immediately started weeping.

The tears are flowing now as I type this. I lost my second baby at 4.5 mths of pregnancy. It was a little boy and we named him Michael. I was only 22 at the time, so young, and still in my own opinion naive and innocent.

It was quite a traumatic experience that I still haven’t forgotten 24 years later. When I lost him I was afraid to look at him as I was scared that I would have nightmares for the rest of my life if I did. I won’t go into the details here.
All I know is if I could turn back time oh the things I would do. I would look at him, for heaven’s sake I would hold him and kiss his tiny face and hold his teeny fingers. I think in a way all these years I have been ashamed of myself that I hadn’t.
I feel I didn’t honor him as much as I could have.
I had two friends who gave me a little flower basket that I still have and it has come with me through 5 moves in Calgary and 7 moves In Steinbach and 8 moves in Saskatoon. It has been to 3 provinces and 20 moves. That is how precious this little keepsake memory is to me. Its ALL I have of him.
I am forever grateful to them for gifting me with it all those years ago. Thank you!!

We don’t know how much time we have with each other and a little fresh baby is so precious and deserves to be honored and captured in their dear and sweet innocence and with that moving forward each session will be done in honor of my precious little boy named Michael. He was born on my mom’s birthday and he was due on Christmas day.

Such significance and so many special days that keep him forever in my memory.

Know that when you are trusting me to capture your newborn that I am shooting your session with all my heart and I want it to be perfectly captured and give you beautiful keepsake pictures of your precious little one.
