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

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

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

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!

Oscar (and Reese and Ryan)

These guys are my BFFs! I met Reese way back in college when we took Cinema, Television, Stage and Radio at SAIT. We were both writer/director majors and while it took us awhile to warm up to each other (a bit of an understatement, haha) we’ve been thick as thieves ever since. Oscar is the

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

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

The Colliers

It’s the first day of November! (Or Snowvember as I’ve been calling it today, amiright Calgary????) Which means that I’m now committed to a blog post a day for the next 30 days! First up is a session share of our really great friends. We are all so lucky to live right around the

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

The Amazing and Incredible Ryan and his Family

Oh, where do I start with this special family? I met them years ago and I’ve been taking photos of their little unit of three happily every year. Now they have a beautiful family of four, but with no shortage of ups and downs. This little man made a very unexpected early debut on Halloween at

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 – Mother’s Day

We went to visit my grandma in her care facility last weekend for Mother’s Day. It was actually a really fun time, lots of laughs and both my grandma and the other residents love when children come to visit. They get a LOT of attention. I’m so very lucky that I get to spend an afternoon

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

Kananaskis

I think I’ve talked about the Delta Lodge at Kananaskis here before, we head out there every Easter. This year we decided to sneak out there for the February break, excited to do some sledding, skating and swimming! We LOVE the Delta Kananaskis, they have such an amazing hotel for families.

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

I can’t believe how lucky I’ve been this fall, getting to photograph Calgary’s cutest families!

Cousins

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!

This Boy

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

Friends

I’m so lucky to have this family in my life! Our daughters are best friends, and so are we! Wine, crochet, True Blood, water-colour, iPhones, dinners, beers, the list goes on and on and on. They are true friends, and have been there for me and the girls in such amazing ways. So yeah, I love

My heart

My heart has been breaking for this family this year. My heart soared to see them again, to see them gluing themselves back together, piece by little piece. My heart feels bigger for knowing them.

Red

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!

Mini Halloween

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

B

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

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 –
