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
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!
So this post is REALLY late in coming, but after seeing so many surprised faces at the mini sessions, I realized that not everyone knows the BIG news! We surprised the girls with these SO AMAZING AND DELICIOUS cakes from Sugar Shack Cakes & Pastries. I’ve mentioned them before but please
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
Just One – Calgary Newborn Photography
Just one quick peek of this super happy little man!
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

Custom Harry Potter Invitations
Emma is 11 today, and we are smack in the middle of planning her Harry Potter party for next weekend. It’s been so much fun thinking up cool things to do, eat and decorate with, so I’m expecting to blog about things a lot. Here’s the first thing up – the invitations! We used
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
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
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
Crochet Mood Blanket
Ah, the wonderful world of Instagram. Due to my love of documenting all things that happen to me, I’ve been able to participate in some really neat things lately. The first is the Crochet Mood Blanket. My grandma used to crochet all the time, and I remember learning enough as a kid to chain,
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!
Let’s Do List
After spending two days trying to set up a “universal” remote and trying (and failing) to book hotel room for Sundance, I’m feeling frustrated and decidedly NOT relaxed. Every holiday season I think I’m going to take time off, spend time with friends and family and just live
Another Gorgeous Family
I can’t believe how lucky I’ve been this fall, getting to photograph Calgary’s cutest families!
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
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
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
Alberta Children’s Hospital Foundation
I’m so excited because this year I get to do three separate shoots for the Children’s Hospital here in Calgary. I’ve said many times that these are my favorite shoots to do, I look forward to them all year! I’ve met some really amazing, genuine, gorgeous kids this year so
Ack! I have so many blog posts kicking around in the brain. Lots of photos from Paris, client sessions and just things that I’m working on! My friend Laurel and I started a watercolor course a couple of weeks ago and I am having so much fun. I’ve actually never considered myself artsy,
Dear Emma, Today you are 10. It’s been an entire decade of knowing you, of loving you. Today you got a got a guitar, a camera and a tripod. The three things you wanted so very much. You are my first child, my biggest hope, my largest dream. You have always brought so much happiness and
Ah! How is spring break half over already? As usual, I start the vacation off with so many big plans. Skating at the Oval, maybe Telus Spark and/or the Glenbow, geocaching and crafts. Oh, and some spring cleaning! (FYI – the Oval is actually closed until July for public skating) What have
Valentine’s Day is Almost Here!
I just got back from taking the girls to DisneyWorld for a week, and somehow Valentine’s Day is upon us! I didn’t have any time to do the multiple crafty things I wanted to do – but you can check out my V-Day Pinterest board if you want to try something out this week! I’ll

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 –

I love me a good color palette.
As I attempted to get some last-minute orders placed this morning, I found myself sucked into something online that I could NOT get enough of. It’s a free Color Palette Generator from bighugelabs.com and it is completely awesome. Imagine being able to take ANY photo of ANY thing and then get
Holy Cow, I Made This! – Peppermint Pretzel Bites
Last week I had some chocolate coated pretzels with candy canes on them and it was pretty much the best thing ever. I thought I may be able to recreate such a thing, and I did! Easily and tastily! First, I melted some Wilton Candy Melts in my Wilton Chocolate Pro melter. I am BIG on making things
