The Ginger Kids

Oh, I love this family. I first met them a couple of years ago when their firstborn was a year old. I got to come back and see their new addition, who is now a year old herself. I love coming to their place because they have a cool sense of style and have some really funky furniture. They are

I love Calgary babies!

I’m back from Vegas with all sorts of cool things to show and tell, but first, I need to blog about this SUPERcute baby that I didn’t get a chance to talk about before I left. Her mom and dad bought the maternity/newborn combo, but then decided to wait on the newborn session until Kate


Just one sneak peek for today. I’m working on this family session from earlier this month, and should have more to share in the next couple of days!

New Music : Lenka

Back at the end of October, beginning of November I was watching an episode of Grey’s Anatomy and there was the most beautiful, catchy song at the end. I used Shazam on my iPhone to discover the artist, and within minutes I had downloaded the entire CD. I swear, the whole album has not left

This baby has a dimple in her knee.

Isn’t it just the cutest thing ever? Whoops. Spoke too soon. I have a bunch more from this session to share, but wanted to get this sneak peek up tonight.

Giving is Awesome

Ok, ok. So it’s not the new blog. It’s still the old one. But I wanted to make good on my promise to pick the winner of the Giving is Awesome contest. There were a lot of amazing, heartfelt entries. I was sincerely touched by what you wrote about the people you were nominating. There


I first met little Walker last year as a newborn, and this year Mark called me back to do a Father/Son session. With both of us having recent losses, this idea was especially poignant. What a wonderful gift for his son to have someday, to be able to look back and see how much love there was in

My yearly trek to Lake Bonavista

I say trek only because I live so far north we joke that it’s always Christmas here. Ahhhh, Calgary. I first met Carrie when she only had Matthew, but since then I’ve done a newborn shoot, her baby was a model for me for the March of Dimes, and now again we hung out to do a family

We got SO lucky

This is a wonderful family that has been with me since the very beginning. Teresa is a gorgeous mom who I am so fortunate to have as a client because she tells all her awesome friends about me. It’s been a fun group of ladies I’ve managed to meet, all thanks to her. We were all set to

Pregnancy becomes her

I see lots of beautiful pregnant women, and they really do have a glow. But I have to say that this particular mama-to-be had something extra. She was radiant. And carrying twins. I did not know that the two things could possibly go together, because I would certainly be tired and crabby. But Carla

love love love

I’ve said it plenty of times, and I will probably say it plenty more. I love love love my job. I really, really love it when I get to have sessions with the 6-8 month’ers. It’s my absolute favorite age, hands down. These little people have such big personalities and I get to have


I just love these people. Truly. I loved hanging out with them, they are awesome at joking around and being at ease. And now they have two new little people who are going to grow up as relaxed and sweet as they are. Oh, and they’re going to have cool taste like their parents too. PS


This is totally a cool house. I liked it so much that I wrangled a second visit! I loved little Max, whether he was awake or asleep, and lucky us, we got some of both. It was such a treat to meet his family, and see their beautiful house. Did I mention their cool house? Forgot to mention:

Patience. (or stubbornness?)

Haha! I am very lucky to have great friends who sometimes think I am pretty great too. This session was a gift certificate bought from a friend, who in turn gifted it to *her* friend. It’s like Pay It Forward, except I get paid for it. LOL! Anyway, this session started out kind of slow, the

Fall in Calgary

Remember when the leaves were a golden yellow? When the air was crisp, but the sun was warm? Yeah, me neither. Apparently I have photographic evidence though, as this session must have taken place during those 3 days before it dropped below zero and all the leaves blew away, lol. It was the perfect

Just one . . .

I am super swamped right now, and not able to give the blog the love it deserves. So until I can make the real post about this sweet little man, here’s just one for those who are waiting patiently. (Row, you can consider it your birthday present from me, lol)

Little Red-headed Cutie

I had a wonderful time a few weeks ago driving out to Elbow Valley, just west of Calgary. Such a beautiful place, I really didn’t want to leave. So much so that I told my husband we had to move there, lol! This was a wonderful family with a beautiful home and kind hearts. Little Grace was

Newborn Sweetness

I’m behind in my blogging, and had to add this little dreamboat. He was so good and sleepy, the session was a breeze!

Urban Mini Session Sneak Peek!

Whew! I busted my behind to get these up before I leave for Vegas. (My flight is at 6am, which means I’m leaving my house at 4am – that’s just not right) I have lots and lots to say about the mini sessions down at Eau Claire Market, but I will try to make it short and sweet.

More gorgeous Calgary kids!

This was such a fun session for me! The kids were absolutely awesome, so fun and playful. Their mom was super fun too, we joked and giggled quite a bit during the afternoon. It was a beautiful day in Calgary, and I couldn’t have spent it at a better place.

Twin Maternity

Haha! So more twins, but this time they are on the inside. Actually, they’re on the outside now, but these photos are all maternity. I’ll post the newborn session after it takes place. This was one of the most fun sessions I’ve had. Mom was absolutely up for ANYTHING, Dad was

Newborn cutie

This session is from a few weeks ago. I am slowly getting things caught up, and the blog is getting caught up too. Slowly. It was another one of those super fun sessions, and little baby Megan was the perfect model. Lots of laughing, a little bit of sleeping, and tons of love.

Remember me?

  I’m baaaaaaaack! It’s been a very long two weeks, as you probably have noticed! The website, blog, ordering software, email – all of it went down two Fridays ago, and it’s just finally today that everything is back up and running! I’ve changed the website for the

The best photographers you haven’t heard of . . . yet!

I was recently involved in a conversation about current children’s photographers in the world today. About how there are a few names that get mentioned over and over again, and although very well deserving and wonderful people (some are friends), it’s time to shine some light on some

Baby Interior Designer

Remember the maternity session from May with the awesome house? They had their adorable little girl, and were up for absolutely anything. I could not believe the amount of gorgeous dark hair on her head – both mine had such fair hair as newborns. It was such a blast hanging out for the

The Fab Four

This was a family session that I did back in June. We got to spend the afternoon in their GORGEOUS backyard – seriously, one of the best backyards in Calgary. Doesn’t hurt that the patio furniture featured my favorite lime green color. Hee. This family was hitting a lot of milestones

A newborn baby, his big sis, and some stripes

A few weeks ago I was in south Calgary, at this very special newborn session. Little baby boy actually came into the world a bit late – which was quite a shocker for Mom and Dad, considering their first baby came flying into the world at twenty-something weeks. And so it starts from birth

Lawsie Mercy!

That’s what my favorite blogger, The Pioneer Woman would say about the cuteness of these two kids. When older siblings are involved in a newborn session, I usually tell Mom & Dad not to get their hopes up for THE perfect sibling shot, because that usually doesn’t come at this point

Love isn’t limited to weddings

It was a real joy to spend a day taking photos of two people so much in love, as I did on Saturday. Little did I realize that I am doing this with all of my sessions, I maybe just didn’t notice it before! As I edited these images yesterday, I was literally moved to tears at some of the tender

A wedding in Red Deer

I assisted my good friend Deanna Hall on a wedding yesterday in Red Deer. The day was absolutely beautiful, the couple was gorgeous, the wedding party fun and relaxed. It was a beautiful ceremony, and it touched me beyond words to see the groom have such an emotional reaction to seeing his bride
