Fries Before Guys

As I’m preparing images for the new website, I found these cute ones of baby Amelia last year. Since Valentine’s day is just a few days away I just had to post them – she was so cute and chunky back then! (Unlike the cute and chunky she is now, lol) The tutu is from one

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

Actor Headshots

It was so much fun meeting this young lady – she has such personality and poise! She’s an actor and needed new headshots and I’m so glad she was referred to me! She’s performing this summer at Storybook Theatre in Grease – so grab some tickets and be sure to check it

Sweet Little Neil – Calgary Newborn Photography

This was such a fun session for me to do because it meant that I got to reconnect with an old friend that I haven’t seen in years! It was also the first session in the new studio and it actually created so many more options for us because I didn’t have to pack everything to take it on

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

I’m Back!

It’s fall. How did that happen? I haven’t posted in ages, which is TERRIBLE because I went to a blogging conference in June. I learned a ton but it didn’t stop me from having the busiest summer ever! I want to do a big recap post but let me sum up in case I never get around to

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

Lighting! We Picked our Lighting!

Oh happy day! We finally chose all of our lighting for the entire house! Thank you to all that chimed in with ideas and help – they were so very much appreciated! Here is a snippet of what we chose, we are very excited and can’t wait to see everything in our new home! Great room. This

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

Hobbling Around Like a Little Old Woman

When you are pregnant, your body releases a hormone called Relaxin. A brilliant little hormone, it makes your ligaments all loosey goosey for the baby to get the heck out of there. What can happen however, is that the hormone loosens everything up so well, that your pelvis gets out of whack. Which

New House – Cabinets

We’ve been super busy this week so I fell behind in my daily blogging. The good news is that we are making a lot of progress in our every day lives! We met with the cabinet maker this week and signed off on the cabinetry designs for the new house. I’m really excited about the look of

February 10 on 10

Well, ok – it’s really 7. I quickly shot these this month on the bed in about 3 minutes. I don’t have tons of time to spare these days – and I have a blog post coming soon with Max’s “official” newborn photos. The boy is still jaundiced but getting

This Sandwich Changed Me

I had the best sandwich experience of my life. Since getting pregnant with Max, I have been VERY interested in food. Not a “foodie” type – just a hungry type! For example, the last few weeks of pregnancy I was hitting Ricky’s All Day Grill to have a strawberry Belgian

Adventures in Breastfeeding

With my first two, breastfeeding came really easily. Both girls latched on almost immediately at birth and were nursing pros. I never understood at all about the struggles with breastfeeding. Now I’m understanding all too well! After birth, Max had trouble with latching. We were told by the

Chateau Lake Louise

Last week Josh’s parents came to visit from Connecticut. Even though we have a new baby, we still wanted to try to show them some of Calgary’s more famous sites. While not in Calgary, Lake Louise is something that every visitor should experience at least twice – once in the

Maxwell Lincoln Kane

Maxwell Lincoln Kane I’m so excited to finally announce that Max is here! He was born on January 7th, 2015, weighing a surprising 9lbs 11oz and measuring 21.5″ long. After his due date coming and going, I was getting pretty impatient for him to arrive. I actually still didn’t

Superbowl Sunday

Since Josh is from Connecticut, we thought it was a good idea to have people over to watch the Patriots play the Seahawks. The day before – when we realized we had a newborn and absolutely no idea how we were going to pull off a party – we hit Pinterest and looked for the easiest

NaBloPoMo (AGAIN)

After feeling really great about blogging every day in November, I fell off the wagon in December and January – December had a miserable pregnant lady and January had a sleep-deprived new mom. But February, February has a glimmer of hope – a little bit more sleep and a lot more

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

Taking Stock 01

My friend Katie at Freckled Latte posted this great questionnaire so I had to steal it! Making : Christmas Crack Cooking : Soup, soup and more soup! This dill pickle soup has been made twice this week! (by Josh, lol) Drinking : Sparkling apple juice Reading: Shopaholic to the Stars by Sophie

Charlotte is a Flip Girl! – Triple Flip

Back in September, I randomly entered both girls to be “Flip Girls” for Triple Flip. The winners would get to model outfits at Market Mall and have a photo shoot, and the images get used for display in the store and/or website/marketing materials. They don’t ask for photos

Nancy – Calgary Beauty Photography

This is Nancy. She is insanely gorgeous. She was one of the kind and lovely ladies that helped me out by modelling for my new beauty venture. Thanks so much Nancy, I adore these images and you!

Mockingjay Part One

With Charlotte at a sleepover last night, we decided to take Emma on a date – just the three of us. Of course with Mockingjay Part One just opening, it HAD to be that. We were really scared about how busy it would be, but thankfully Landmark Cinemas had a ton of screenings. We only got there

Storybook Theatre

The girls have fully immersed themselves in the world of theatre this year! They take classes at Storybook Theatre in the NW. Emma started this summer at Shakespeare camp where she landed the title role in Macbeth. She loved it so much that she enrolled in the next session of camp which was Seuss

FOUNDATION!

This post is going to be boring to almost everyone except me, lol! We have foundation! It’s a big step in the home building process and very exciting! The next big thing will be framing, that will really be exciting as then the house really takes shape! We are almost finished our selections

Lena – Calgary Women’s Photography

Two years ago, I put out a call to clients for models for a project I was thinking about undertaking. I wanted to start doing more women’s portraiture – not boudoir which I had done in the past but not quite glamour photography either. Just beautiful portraits of women. Now, when I am

Home Building

With our new addition arriving in January (or December, ack!) we needed to find a bigger home. Currently, our 1600sq ft 3 bedroom works perfectly for our family. The basement is developed for a tv room and my office, and we feel like we have plenty of space for the 4 of us. But 5? That’s a

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,

Disney’s Big Hero 6

We just got home from seeing Disney’s Big Hero 6 in 3D and it was awesome! I cried twice (although once was at the short animation film at the beginning, lol) but in a good way. There was nothing too heartbreaking – my eldest was sad but 8 year old Charlotte didn’t get upset at

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

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

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!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JOSH!

Today was Josh’s 35th birthday (LUCKY) and when asked what he wanted for his birthday dinner, he had ONE answer – MEATLOAF. His mom always makes him meatloaf on his birthday, and it was kind of a daunting task to take on. Inspiration struck though, when I was looking at meatloaf recipes

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
