The Tooth Fairy – calgary child photographer
It’s been a big couple of years for my daughter Emma. Started school, making friends, learning to read. But the biggest thing for her has been losing her baby teeth. Her friends started losing their in kindergarden, and so the countdown begun. Murphy’s Law said that of course she
This Is One Active Family – calgary family photography
This family and I had a bit of trouble coordinating our schedules! We rescheduled due to their youngest feeling under the weather, and then Mom and Dad were off to Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Olympics. (yes, they were at the Gold medal hockey game, and yes, I am very jealous). We finally
WPPI’s Fresh Faces
As a lot of you know, I travel down to Las Vegas every year for the annual Wedding & Portrait Photographer International’s Trade Show and Convention. Its a whirlwind week of great friends, checking out new products, taking classes, shooting images for fun and checking out the print
Meet Kate – calgary newborn photography
Remember this belly? The most gorgeous, squishy, darling little girl came out of there and into the world right before Christmas. I know that Shelley was probably disappointed that she didn’t get a sneak peek before I left for my vacation, but I tricked her and scheduled this teaser to post
I Love This Age! – calgary baby photographer
This was my third session with this family this year, and I love them soooooo much. They even gave me Buttercream Bake Shoppe cupcakes to take home with me! (Note to clients – this is not a plea for baked goods. Actually, maybe it is.) I loved seeing little Izzy now that she’s getting
Boys – calgary child photography
Having two girls, the only experience I have with boys is during sessions. I have to say that I am constantly surprised at just how much MORE energy boys have than girls. These two were no exception, we had such a great time running around Sandy Beach (which isn’t at all sandy, wonder why
Happy – calgary family photography
I had such a wonderful time with this sweet family a few weeks ago. They were kind enough to indulge my new video obsession, so I could make another “fusion” slideshow – that incorporates both video and stills from a session. I’ve had such a great response to this,
Summer baby – calgary newborn photography
This family is geared up for summer. A brand new baby, an up-coming vacation and two older siblings that are full of life and energy. It was a (seemingly) rare hot day in Calgary when these were taken, and it made for happy, goofy kids and a pretty relaxed mom. Awesome, awesome session.
Gone, gone, gone, she been gone so long . . .
I think this is the longest I have EVER spent away from the blog! I planned on doing some updates while away on vacation, but alas, no internet to be found except on my iPhone! So be prepared for a whole gaggle of blog posts in the next little while. I have a TON of sessions that need sharing, as
This is why I shouldn’t buy expensive lip gloss . . .
One of the first things that comes up when someone talks about my blog to me is Charlotte and her ability to get into everything and anything. It makes people feel happy that they are not me. LOL I get a lot of “I would be so mad, it’s so awesome that you take pictures instead!”.
My daughter Emma had her 6th birthday party atEnchanted Events last weekend and she says it was her best party ever. I think so too, since I didn’t have to do a thing, not from make the invitations, plan the games, or clean up after! My idea of a perfect party! The “fairies” there
I was invited into the home of this brand new family to Calgary. Just getting settled in, and along comes a new baby! This little sweetheart though had the most good-natured disposition I may have seen on any newborn that I’ve photographed. Her brother (being a boy) was definitely not quiet,
This kind of thing happens a lot.
Just one that tickled my funny bone from the session I was editing tonight. Even when you see the most tender, most loving sibling image on the blog or website – know that there are 5-10 more images just like this one. Hey, I don’t blame her – I’m not one for sharing the
My yearly trek to Lake Bonavista
I say trek only because I live so far north we joke that it’s always Christmas here. Ahhhh, Calgary. I first met Carrie when she only had Matthew, but since then I’ve done a newborn shoot, her baby was a model for me for the March of Dimes, and now again we hung out to do a family
We got SO lucky
This is a wonderful family that has been with me since the very beginning. Teresa is a gorgeous mom who I am so fortunate to have as a client because she tells all her awesome friends about me. It’s been a fun group of ladies I’ve managed to meet, all thanks to her. We were all set to
love love love
I’ve said it plenty of times, and I will probably say it plenty more. I love love love my job. I really, really love it when I get to have sessions with the 6-8 month’ers. It’s my absolute favorite age, hands down. These little people have such big personalities and I get to have
I just love these people. Truly. I loved hanging out with them, they are awesome at joking around and being at ease. And now they have two new little people who are going to grow up as relaxed and sweet as they are. Oh, and they’re going to have cool taste like their parents too. PS
Patience. (or stubbornness?)
Haha! I am very lucky to have great friends who sometimes think I am pretty great too. This session was a gift certificate bought from a friend, who in turn gifted it to *her* friend. It’s like Pay It Forward, except I get paid for it. LOL! Anyway, this session started out kind of slow, the
Fall in Calgary
Remember when the leaves were a golden yellow? When the air was crisp, but the sun was warm? Yeah, me neither. Apparently I have photographic evidence though, as this session must have taken place during those 3 days before it dropped below zero and all the leaves blew away, lol. It was the perfect
Little Red-headed Cutie
I had a wonderful time a few weeks ago driving out to Elbow Valley, just west of Calgary. Such a beautiful place, I really didn’t want to leave. So much so that I told my husband we had to move there, lol! This was a wonderful family with a beautiful home and kind hearts. Little Grace was
Urban Mini Session Sneak Peek!
Whew! I busted my behind to get these up before I leave for Vegas. (My flight is at 6am, which means I’m leaving my house at 4am – that’s just not right) I have lots and lots to say about the mini sessions down at Eau Claire Market, but I will try to make it short and sweet.
More gorgeous Calgary kids!
This was such a fun session for me! The kids were absolutely awesome, so fun and playful. Their mom was super fun too, we joked and giggled quite a bit during the afternoon. It was a beautiful day in Calgary, and I couldn’t have spent it at a better place.
Here’s a session from back in July that I just loved. Mom had a slammin’ body from being an exercise instructor, Dad was gorgeous and willing to take his shirt off and lie on the bed, sister was a beauty who loved to pose for me, and little brother was a dream newborn – nice and
