Harry Potter Exhibition – Edmonton
We surprised the girls with a quick trip to Edmonton to visit the Harry Potter Exhibition last weekend. Emma’s finished the Harry Potter series, much to my delight, Charlotte has finished the first book, and Josh is being introduced to the movies. The exhibit is MAGICAL. Sadly, no photos or
10 on 10 – March
If you remember the 10 on 10 project that I joined in February, you’ll realize that we got a bit behind again this month. In fact, I scrambled to take some images yesterday, so this month’s entry is a hodgepodge of home life. Charlotte just lost a front tooth, Emma is very much a TWEEN
Those eyes! Those lips!
I met one of these little guys when he was just a baby, and now he’s a big brother to a energetic 10 month old that is just as cute as he is! These two have such striking features, they are absolute stunners and were a ton of fun to spend the morning with. This post is featured on Fresh
Cold Hands, Warm Heart

Another Gorgeous Family
I can’t believe how lucky I’ve been this fall, getting to photograph Calgary’s cutest families!
This was such a fun session, I’ve photographed Blake and her mom and dad for many years now, and it was such a pleasure to get to meet more of the family! This post is featured on Fresh Sugar’s Best of Calgary Family Photography page!
I’ve known this boy since he was just a few days old. He has always had the most beautiful, soulful eyes. Sometimes he smiles big, and sometimes he just watches me. He is quiet and sweet and fun and I just adore him. This post is featured on Fresh Sugar’s Best of Calgary Family
I just love love love these smiles and these kids. I look forward to seeing them every year, I adore how the family always coordinates so awesomely!
I love that this mom thought to bring some Halloween costumes to their mini session! I’ve know Jen and the boys for years and years and she always has fun ideas for her sessions. The blog for the next little while will be a big gushy mess of love because I’ve had so many repeat clients
When little B was much littler, I had the most amazing time meeting her and her family. I’ve gotten to photograph them through the years, watch her grow taller and more beautiful. I’ve become Facebook friends with her fiery and fantastic mother, and have witnessed some of their huge up
Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation
I’m so excited because this year I get to do three separate shoots for the Children’s Hospital here in Calgary. I’ve said many times that these are my favorite shoots to do, I look forward to them all year! I’ve met some really amazing, genuine, gorgeous kids this year so
Rainy – Calgary Children’s Photography
Just one that caught my eye today while editing. With the weather in Calgary lately, I think we could all use a raincoat, rain boots and a juice box.
Dear Emma, Today you are 10. It’s been an entire decade of knowing you, of loving you. Today you got a got a guitar, a camera and a tripod. The three things you wanted so very much. You are my first child, my biggest hope, my largest dream. You have always brought so much happiness and
Valentine’s Day is Almost Here!
I just got back from taking the girls to DisneyWorld for a week, and somehow Valentine’s Day is upon us! I didn’t have any time to do the multiple crafty things I wanted to do – but you can check out my V-Day Pinterest board if you want to try something out this week! I’ll
The things I try don’t always work.
I’ve seen and tried a lot of great stuff on Pinterest. Food, crafts, all sorts of fun. But sometimes, there’s stuff on there that isn’t true or doesn’t work. I saw a pin once about putting a wooden spoon over your pot to prevent it from boiling over. And then I had scorched
2012 – Calgary Family Photographer
Last year was action-packed with so many ups and downs. It’s one of those years that I will always remember but sometimes like to forget. One thing that I’m so happy to think about is all the wonderful clients that I got to photograph. I have so many wonderful, amazing clients –
Two Bigger Monkeys – Calgary Child Photography
A bigger blog post is coming as this was actually a newborn session for their new brother, but I just had to show how grown up these lovely ladies have become! THEN: NOW:
Group of Gorgeous – Calgary family photography
I was super excited when Trish contacted me to do this family session, as it’s an awesome blend of two very awesome families! Reds and blondes and brunettes and freckles. Oh my! I know Trish is dying to see these, so here’s a quick sneak peek! This post is featured on Fresh
Elizabeth – Alberta Children’s Hospital Photography
She. Is. Amazing.
Since They Were Babies – Calgary children’s photography
I’ve known these two smilers since they were both born. Well, technically since I did Renee’s maternity photos, I’ve known Claire since BEFORE she was born. I love this time of season because I get to see all of my favorite families for photos to celebrate them, who they are right
Jackson and Katelyn – Alberta Children’s Hospital Photography
These two cuties aren’t related but are the Radiothon kids, representing country and rock and roll. I think they do a great job!
Aiden – Alberta Children’s Hospital Photography
I absolutely love this age, the moments between being a kid and a teenager.
Chase – Alberta Children’s Hospital Photography
Back in the summer it was my extreme pleasure to photograph for the Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation for the third year in a row. It’s a long day full of hard work, but it’s also the best day of my year. Meeting kids that are success stories for the Children’s Hospital
Asher’s First Birthday – Calgary Baby Photography
I can’t even tell you how much I love this session. I had so much fun, and just ADORE the photos that we got. So much that I have had a lot of trouble narrowing down the photos, and didn’t know what to post here on the blog! I was so excited to have another cake smash photography
This afternoon Charlotte came to me and asked if I would put some makeup on her to play dress up. After I was finished, she agreed to let me take some quick pictures of her new haircut. Makeup on kids is not something I normally go for, but it’s fun to play around with Char. She is a natural
A Little Fun For Me
Every time I think I’m going to get back on the blogging train, I fall off and hard. Plus I always seem to decide catch up right before I head out of town, and of course this week is no exception. I still have a ton of sessions to blog, some posts I’ve been thinking about, as well as
More Love – Calgary Family Photographer
This year for the fall mini-sessions, I only met two new clients. Every single other session was previous clients. It makes me feel so happy to see all these families again, year after year. (And meet the new ones too!) Here’s another cutie from our Baker Park sessions, I feel so privileged
Blake aka ‘the baby I want for my own’
I’ve known Blake since she was born and she’s been my little guinea pig ever since. I love her so much that I seriously consider offering to babysit her, which frankly I don’t ever offer to anyone. Even my KIDS love this kid, Blake’s mom came over for a party and my girls
This is a family that I’ve had the immense pleasure of watching grow over the years. I can’t even call them clients anymore, because they honestly are more like friends. I love having sessions with them, full of laughing and joking and spontaneity. We went to Fish Creek park here in
If you are even half the procrastinator that I am, you may sometimes find yourself looking at a daunting task and just pretending it’s not there. That’s kind of what happened with this blog: I realized that I hadn’t written in a month and stuck my head in the sand. Then one month
Mini Sessions Are Back!
It’s that time of year! This year I’m doing something a little different. As some of you know, one of my very dear friends was diagnosed with ovarian cancer just under two weeks ago. I took a trip to Portland this past week to be with her during surgery and I plan to go back several
Alberta Children’s Hospital – 2011
This year was another full day of meeting the most amazing kids around. Each one had their own spunky personality and a light in their eyes that was difficult to miss. If you are ever looking for a worthy organization to donate to you, I strongly urge you to consider the Alberta Children’s
Alberta Children’s Hospital – 2010
I wrote about my experience with the Children’s Hospital earlier this year. It’s been a special place to me since Emma was very little, and it’s been one of my greatest pleasures to donate my services to them these past two years. I get to spend the day meeting real kids who have

I’m involved in a blog carousel with some other photographers. It’s a way for us to push ourselves creatively and have a little fun by allowing our readers to visit other blogs in the carousel. Make sure to check out the link at the bottom of this post to continue on and see the other blogs that
Yesterday morning I was doing a little work before enjoying Mother’s Day and Charlotte came downstairs with a couple of my photo props on. I immediately sent her back upstairs to put on a supergirl costume so we could get a few photos. It was a quick 5 minute shoot, but I am loving the fact
