2016 Calgary Mini Sessions

I’m so excited that the timing of this new baby worked out that I can still do mini sessions this year! Because first pick always goes to previous clients and newsletter subscribers, there are limited sessions available now, but I will still do my best to squeeze everyone in! The mini

Princess Blake

I’ve been taking photos of Blake since before she was born, lol! Every year we do a family session in the fall, but when I saw this dress that her mom picked up for her – I knew we had to do a photo shoot! We had a great time exploring the Fairmont Palliser in downtown Calgary, the

2015 Mini Sessions

It’s that wonderful time of year again! Kids are back at school, the leaves are gorgeous, and pumpkin spice lattes are finally out. Mini sessions at Baker Park are also back, at just the right time to take advantage of the gorgeous scenery! Due to this being a very busy autumn, there is very

A Very Special Family

This is a family very dear to me, I’ve been photographing them since Izzy was in her mom’s belly! I just adore taking their pictures, they are always fun, real and just all around super people. We took a stroll through Bowness Park last month, I’m so excited that it’s back

Happy Half-Birthday Max!

Oh gosh, time flies, doesn’t it? I can’t believe Max is already six months old today! I still haven’t posted his newborn photos here yet! He’s such a good little baby, we are so very lucky. He has the happiest disposition and just loves life! Right now his favorite things

Sydney

I met Sydney downtown last week and we had the best time! Her mom let me know that she’s a little shy, but I think she did a great job of modelling for the camera! I had so much fun meeting a new little friend, and trying out a new green location before it’s green everywhere else was

March 10 on 10 – Emma Headshots

This month’s 10 on 10 is a quick little test of my backdrops for some head shots. Emma has dove fully into the world of theatre and in class they discussed actor head shots, so of course she immediately came home and asked for some! She’s been taking classes at Storybook Theatre for

Spring Mini Sessions are Coming!

I’m so excited! I’m offering spring mini sessions for the first time ever! Details will be sent out TOMORROW, and newsletter subscribers and previous clients will get first crack at these VERY limited sessions in an amazing location! Sign up for the newsletter or send me an email at

Scarlet Charlotte

Last Sunday Charlotte came home from a sleepover and was exhausted. No different from a normal sleepover, but this time her voice sounded hoarse and she had a few spots on her face. As the day progressed, she developed more and more pimple-like spots on her cheeks and the top of her lips. Her

The Girl Stays in the Picture

A couple of years ago I was golfing with my friend Chelsea and she made a joke about knowing which kid was my favourite. I tend to take more photos of Charlotte because she is with me more often – Emma is a little more private and solitary. Emma also puts up a big fuss about getting her

Ruby and her family – Alberta Children’s Hospital Photographs

Another amazing ACH family – aren’t they just the BEST looking? I love Ruby’s name – it was definitely in the running for baby names for us!

Lexxie – Alberta Children’s Hospital Photographs

Now that I’ve made the pledge to blog every day this month, I have the ability to catch up on some of the Alberta Children’s Hospital images that I shot in the summer. I photograph for the Foundation every year and it is 100 percent the highlight of my job. I love these strong,

10 on 10 – November

It’s our monthly 10 on 10, and mine was done in exactly 3 minutes. Charlotte was wearing her Elsa dress (although the Frozen madness is finally dying down around here – a year later), so she ran outside, I took 10 photos and we ran inside! It’s cold in Calgary right now! Be sure

Blake! – Calgary Child Photography

Year after year I talk about just how cute Blake is. I love her photo sessions because she is so full of fun and energy. Watching her grow up has been a high point in my work, I really look forward to this family’s session every fall. This year we made the trek out to the Calgary Corn Maze

These Kids – Calgary Children’s Photography

I have known these little ones since before they were even born, I was fortunate enough to meet Warren and Carla for their maternity session for the twins. Since then I feel so very lucky to be able to visit with their family year after year, from home to home. Carla was even so sweet as to give me

Mother – Daughter Book Club

I had stumbled upon this list a few months ago and thought it would be a pretty brilliant way for 11 year old Emma and I to have something in common. These days it seems there is a lot more fighting than bonding, and I was excited about the idea of being able to talk about something neutral that

Tara’s Family

Oh how I love this family! It’s so amazing to see how little tiny newborns turn into active kids, running and laughing and being SO MUCH FUN! Thanks so much for coming to see me again you guys, it means the world to me!

Brother and Sister

I just love photographing these two year after year! Not only are they absolutely adorable but they are just amazing kids. So sweet and smart and full of love!

Photogenic!

I adore these little boys! I’ve taken photos of them since they were both newborns, and I am always excited about their sessions because I know I get to take pictures of some good looking kids! Mom and Dad are always super stylish too so they all make a photographer’s dream! Follow my

Zoo Brunch Review

We headed down to the Calgary Zoo yesterday to try out the Safari Brunch. The brunch runs on Sundays from 9:30am to 2:00pm. We hit the brunch around 11:30am, which was a great time – it wasn’t too busy and the food was restocked and fresh. It’s a casual experience, it’s set

And Most Energetic Goes To . . .

This wonderful family! They are the fittest and most active of my clients – and they keep going and going and going! I’ve been photographing these awesome people for years now, and I hope for many more! It’s so much fun getting to catch up at the sessions, and to see how grown up

Jen’s Men

I love getting to see this family every year – we get to catch up and I get to see how much the boys have grown. I think this year they were looking especially handsome!

Family With A Downtown View – Calgary Photography

This session was SO much fun! We had such a beautiful location for their family photographs, I’m so envious that they get to see this amazing view every day! Kate is such a little cutie, great style and so much energy!

10 on 10 – Sprinkler Fun in Calgary

I’ve had to skip a couple of the 10 on 10 blog circles this year because of a super busy summer. I’m back at it now, with a few fun images I took in August – remember before Calgary was blanketed in snow? With the warmer temperatures this week, I’m hoping this wasn’t

Mini Sessions in the Park are Back! – Calgary Family Photography

Oh, Calgary. Embracing the snow today? Don’t worry – it won’t last too long, and we will still be enjoying lovely fall weather! Mini sessions in Baker Park are back by popular demand! It’s been a couple of years and I know that many of you are excited about that leafy

Fun Summer Family

I first had the pleasure of meeting this family back in 2010, when we took a walk through Inglewood to capture their relaxed family portraits. This year, there was an addition to the photos, and a new leafy location! Photographing this family is a breeze, as they are all so fun and easy-going.

10 on 10 – Her First Date

I just cannot believe this day has come. Emma will be 11 next week, and she was asked on her first date by the sweetest boy. She’s known him since the second grade and he’s always just been the kindest, coolest, most respectful boy. I don’t know if I would have said she could go

A Toddler Morning At Home

I had the best time meeting this very cool family. We had a blast spending the morning doing whatever this little man wanted to do. We read books: Drove a car with dad: Played in a chair: Played the drums: Stacked some stuff: Played in the crib: Cuddled with mom: Went outside in the

April Photo A Day Challenge

Back in 2010 I started doing a 365 project, taking a photo a day for an entire year. I was so proud when I completed it, and tried to keep up with it a few times since then but never seemed to stick with it. So I thought I would start one here on the blog, giving myself (and you!) a theme for each

Seriously, spring? – Calgary child photography

I will do a bigger blog post next week, but I had to post one from this morning’s session. I just laughed at the expression on his face – I can imagine him saying “Seriously, spring?” and it echoes my sentiments exactly.

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

Brandy Anderson, CPP

I started Fresh Sugar back in July of 2005, which kind of seems forever ago, but in reality – it’s really not all that long as a career as a photographer. Next year will be my 10th year in business, which I will say is an accomplishment I’m proud of, as I’ve seen

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

10 on 10 at 10

I’m so excited to take part in a blog group called 10 on 10. The idea is 10 images on the 10th of the month., to capture more of your family and daily life. (I know, it’s the 11th, it was a different date this month, lol). I decided to use Emma to have a fun photoshoot, adding another
