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

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

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

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,

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

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.

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

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

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

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

Stella – Calgary baby photography

I really can’t say enough wonderful things about this family. I’ve been photographing them for years now and I just love them. LOVE them! When Jen emailed me to tell me she had decided last minute to get some images for Stella’s one year birthday party, I was so excited to come

DIYA – ALBERTA CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL PHOTOGRAPHY

Ahhhhh! Those eyes! That hair! That smile! Love this little ray of sunshine! How To Help

Asher’s First Birthday – Calgary Baby Photography

I can’t even tell you how much I love this session. I had so much fun, and just ADORE the photos that we got. So much that I have had a lot of trouble narrowing down the photos, and didn’t know what to post here on the blog! I was so excited to have another cake smash photography

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

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

A Week In Their Kitchen – Day Four

One of the coolest things about doing A Week In Their Kitchen are the conversations I’ve had with people about the Food Bank. Almost everyone I’ve spoken to has said the same thing after reading my posts – that next time they donate to the Calgary Inter-Faith Food Bank, they will

Blog Carousel – Monochrome

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

Royal Oak School

As many of you know, I live in the community of Royal Oak in NW Calgary. We moved here almost 8 years ago, before kids and not really understanding how the school system worked. We naively thought that the “future school site” sign in the field a block away from our house would mean

Boomdiada

I had the pleasure of seeing one of my favorite families this fall, they are just so much fun and so gosh darn NICE! It doesn’t hurt that they are absolutely gorgeous as well! While editing this session, I kept singing the Boomdiada song from the Discovery commercial. When I went to do a

Another Fall Family

I was so happy to be able to work with so many past clients this fall. I have known this lovely family since their eldest was a newborn. It was so great to see them again and see how everyone has changed. The girls are so adorable, and it’s pretty amazing to see how much their youngest looks

Dance of the Leaves

I have lots of adorable, smiling shots of these kids from their session at Baker Park. But as soon as I saw all of these images, I knew they were the ones I wanted to blog. I don’t know what says “being a kid” more than playing in a big pile of leaves on a fall day. I love how

It’s Movember

This was the perfect blog post to do a little shout-out about Movember. It’s all about moustaches this month, baby! It’s a great cause and such a unique campaign. I don’t even know how to write about this session. I love this family like we have been friends forever. They are

These kids can fly!

I’ve been gushing a lot about my clients lately, but I want you to know that it’s completely sincere. Every single client that I meet, becomes someone special to me. Whether it’s because we have the same sense of humor, the same sense of style or just because they trust me enough

I love the shy ones

These little sweetheart was SO shy when we first met. I’ve been accused of being too loud (shocker, I know), and every time I’d open my big mouth, she’d cover her ears, LOL! She was completely adorable, and she melted my heart. What really made the session special was that by the

At The Park

I had a TON of sessions at the park this fall. Fresh Sugar clients really took advantage of the 1 week of autumn that Calgary gets, lol! I met this family on a Saturday and we had a great time just hanging out and walking around the park. I’m still in love with this little cutie’s

Expressive

It’s always the highest honor for me when a gift certificate client comes back. When someone else is doing the buying, you never know if the actual recipient is going to enjoy your style of photography. I am very pleased to say that I think this wonderful family from Cochrane did! It was just

The Sweetest Kids

I absolutely love sessions with these adorable kids. Not only are they SO cute, but they are so much fun! We always just have a great afternoon laughing and playing, and what’s even better is that Mom wants images of just that! Making silly faces, jumping on the bed and drawing with chalk

That’s not a toe!

Haha, sorry for the cryptic title for this post, but it was a phrase from this newborn session that STILL cracks me up. Considering that I often shoot little nakey newborn babies, you can probably figure it out. And no, I can’t show the image that inspired the wisecrack. LOL This is the

I love this crew!

Chantal has been a client since Jack was first born, and we’ve actually developed a friendship because she is so sweet and I see them so often. I love when she books a session because not only do I know that we will have a lot of fun, but that the family will have the most amazing

That was then. This is now.

Just one (or two, I guess) to share before the weekend. I first met this little man last year at his newborn session, and it was so great to be able to see him again now that he’s one and all grown up, lol! I’m reallllllly behind on the blogging, and I am so sorry to all my wonderful,

She’s One!

I’ve had the pleasure of seeing this family 4 times in the past year, and I’m excited to say I will see them at least two more times because Mom is pregnant again! I adore this family, you all probably recognize little Izzy by now. She’s the happy little girl with a loving family

Get Thee To A Modelling Agency!

I love this family. LOVE them! I love when I run into them at the ballet, when we chat on Facebook, and especially when we have a session. Bella obviously means the world to them, she is loved in a such a wonderful way. She’s a confident, beautiful young lady, and has a natural flair. She is

Friday Night in Inglewood

I don’t know how she does it, I honestly don’t. I spent the evening with a lovely mom of 4 – a 1 year old, 2.5 year old twins and a 5 year old. I know that it was the hardest I’ve worked for a session in a looooooong time, so I can’t even IMAGINE keeping up with the

He’s one of my favorites

This year has been a banner year for repeat clients. I don’t think I’ve seen more previous clients than I have this year, and it’s wonderful! It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy because it means that they liked their experience (and me!) enough to come back. This is the third

Back from the beautiful Napa Valley!

I’ve returned back from a wonderful trip down to San Francisco and Napa. I went down there for a photography retreat for an amazing organization I belong to: NAPCP (National Association of Professional Child Photographers). It was 3 days of sharing, growing and making amazing connections. It
