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

Whoa Baby!

This is one of the biggest maternity galleries I think I’ve ever done! I couldn’t stop taking pictures of this stunner and her handsome husband. I had so much fun during the session, they are both so in love and excited to be parents, it’s infectious. Thanks so much to come and

Mr. and Mrs. Smith

Last week we traveled to Connecticut for Josh’s sister’s baby shower. While we were there, I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph her maternity session and it was so much fun! Liz and Ben got married two summers ago at Aria in Las Vegas and now Baby Smith is due to make her

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

Cold Hands, Warm Heart

            While the snow is falling in January, it’s time to be cuddly and cozy inside! Fresh Sugar is having a special baby event now until the end of the February: PURCHASE ANY NEWBORN SESSION AND RECEIVE A MATERNITY OR SIX MONTH SESSION FREE!

New Year, New Cards, New Special!

I am so excited to tell you all that I am doing away with holiday cards, birth announcements and the like! Wait, what? I’m not offering them myself anymore, because I’ve partnered with Minted.com to offer cards directly to my clients. What does this mean? It means some great things

One Week! – Calgary Photography Gift Certificates

You may have noticed that I’ve been sprucing up the Fresh Sugar joint lately. It’s a slow process, one that I’m having a great time with. I plan to keep posting about all the little updates, and today is the first one, just in time for the holidays! With one week until Christmas,

Just One This Time – Calgary Maternity Photography

4 years ago I met this super fun couple who were about to have twin girls. The images from their maternity session are some of my most favourite to date. I was ecstatic when I got the email from them that they are about to have another little love join their family!

Mini Sessions Are Back for 2012

It’s that time of year again! Fall is quickly approaching and snow will be here before we know it. (sigh) Due to such popular demand from last year, I’m doing three days of mini sessions at Baker Park, a beautiful and quiet location in NW Calgary. I’m so excited to also be

Chelsea – Calgary Maternity Photography

Chelsea and I met at golf lessons a few years ago and clicked immediately. We’ve been golfing buddies ever since, and she assures me that this summer will be no different. Well, once she pops that baby out. She’s the cutest, sunniest absolutely brightest ray of sunshine of all my

TeuxDeux

TeuxDeux. Get it? TO DO? I have completely been afraid of my blog lately. I have sessions, ideas that I want to share, yet every day that goes by I get more and more adverse to coming here and writing. So I’ve decided to do away with the guilt, and go from here. I really like blogging, I

Squish – Calgary Maternity Photography

I have dropped the ball on blogging yet again! In between mini-sessions, editing and going out of town again – I’ve gotten slightly behind. Expect lots of new posts in the near future though! I met Kate and Ryan at their home a few weeks ago. They are such a COOL couple, their style is

That was me in Professional Photographer magazine!

A few months ago I was contacted by an editor at Professional Photographer magazine – they were interested in profiling me in the magazine and asked me to submit images for consideration. I was SUPER EXCITED but because it wasn’t a sure thing, I didn’t tell a soul. The magazine

Before and After – Calgary Newborn Photography

It’s always fun to see this happy family, and I was excited when they wanted to do a before and after shot with pregnancy and their brand new baby! I loved how this newborn session featured lots of smiles from not only mom, dad and big brother but the new baby too! Don’t forget to click

Finger Painting – Calgary Maternity Photography

I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Anjali last week in a rare warm Calgary evening. The sun was out and beautiful and I couldn’t have asked for a better model. I told her after we did the indoor finger-painting photographs, that I was sure that other people would be requesting a

Blog Carousel – Framed

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

You are SO PRETTY!

Ok, I am seriously laughing out loud because these were my first words to this client. I guess that’s one way to break the ice. LOL Seriously though, I always say how much I love my maternity sessions, and I get so super excited because my mat clients are always some of the best looking and

So, I’m in a book . . .

Last summer, I got a phone call from the fab Erin Manning, television host and book author. She was writing a new book and asked if I would be a part of it – doing an interview as a professional portrait photographer. I have been writing on and off my entire life, so to be asked to be in a

We can pretend it’s spring

This is what I kept saying over and over at this fun maternity session. It was snowing, as usual, but I know that all of Calgary is sick to death of yucky weather, so we pretended it actually felt like spring! I make my prenatal clients head outdoors in all sorts of weather, the increased body

Something in the water

Ok, first things first, I am extremely embarrassed to realize that I haven’t blogged in almost a month. I am usually a very good blogger, but this weird weather in Calgary has got me all turned around I think. Plus we went on vacation to Disneyland for a week, and in between editing and

Almost 3 Years Later

Almost three years ago I got to photograph the lovely Carla when she was still pregnant with twins. Now those twins are running all around the house and Carla is ready to welcome another baby into their warm and happy home. They are such a beautiful family and she is still one of my favorite people

Intimate

Intimate. Isn’t that a word that just invokes so many feelings. You can be intimate with someone, you can have an intimate wedding, a concert can be in an intimate setting. This was the word that kept popping in my head when I was editing this maternity session. The gorgeous mom-and-dad-to-be

Marcy

Ok, this is how behind I am on blogging. This session was from when the grass was green and not white and brown. Marcy has had her baby already. I’ve done the newborn session. I’m beeeeeehind. Which makes me a bit of a behind myself. Ba dum dum! So this is Marcy. You’ve seen her

Spoonful of Sugar Mini Sessions are BACK!

As most of you know, I’m taking off to Italy for the better part of September. Which couldn’t be worse timing business-wise because fall portrait season in Calgary is the busiest season of all. So to make sure I am able to fit all my clients in, I am opening up two full days of

They make really, really, really cute kids.

I was so excited to hear from this family again, I first saw them a few years ago to take maternity and newborn photos for their first adorable child. She was born around the time of Suri Cruise, and I remember commenting on the resemblance. (I always think people look like celebrities). She was

I want her hair. And her house. And her iPads. Oh yeah, and her body.

This session was an absolute DREAM, a dream I tell you. Firstly, she is gorgeous. Like SO NOT EVEN FAIR gorgeous. Secondly, she was super nice, and almost shy! Then I find out that she sent her other two kids to the park so we can have a session that focuses on her and her new baby. Score! But

Don’t Hate Her Because She’s Beautiful

I have been so super lucky to get the MOST beautiful pregnant ladies in Calgary as my clients. It’s so much fun, it’s like photographing models. (Which, yes – this particular client was, lol) There’s something just so fantastic about a maternity session – the whole

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner

Happy Canada Day everyone! We had a great day around here, heading to my mom’s place for a BBQ. Her birthday was last week and we were able to give her the birthday present we’ve been planning for awhile now. She thought she was getting an iPad, she even told us she was practicing her

Eeeek! I can’t wait for the newborn session!

Holy. Cow. This mom is GORGEOUS! I literally clapped my hands in glee when I saw her, lol! They also have an absolutely beautifully decorated home, so she’s talented as well as gorgeous. Not exactly fair, but she is just so darn sweet and polite you would never be able to hate her for it. It

Her First Mother’s Day – calgary maternity photography

It was my absolute pleasure to meet this couple a few weeks ago for the maternity session for their upcoming arrival. I love getting to do a maternity session before a newborn session because it gives me a chance to get to know the mom and dad, and for them to feel more comfortable in the camera.

Claire’s Going To Be A Big Sister – Calgary maternity photography

I absolutely love this family! I’ve been able to photograph their first pregnancy, Claire’s newborn session, and then she was one of my little models for my March of Dimes shoot. It’s such a delight to come back and help document this new little baby’s journey as well! I
