FALL MINIS ARE BACK – September 13th and 20th

It’s that time of year again! I’m so excited that this is my 10th year of offering mini sessions, and to celebrate I have created never-before seen pricing for these exclusive sessions! A 15 minute session and 10 digital files are just $250! There are only a handful of spots

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

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

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

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

I’ll Eat You Up, I Love You So

When we were deciding on a name for Max, I had one stipulation – it had to have a literary connection. Josh had one stipulation as well – he had to be named Max. Luckily for us Where The Wild Things Are is an amazing book that we both love. Now that Max is here, it’s been fun to

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

The Girl Stays in the Picture

A couple of years ago I was golfing with my friend Chelsea and she made a joke about knowing which kid was my favourite. I tend to take more photos of Charlotte because she is with me more often – Emma is a little more private and solitary. Emma also puts up a big fuss about getting her

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

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

10 on 10 at 10

I’m so excited to take part in a blog group called 10 on 10. The idea is 10 images on the 10th of the month., to capture more of your family and daily life. (I know, it’s the 11th, it was a different date this month, lol). I decided to use Emma to have a fun photoshoot, adding another

This Boy

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

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

More of the gorgeous Stella! This post is featured on Fresh Sugar’s Best of Calgary Baby Photography page!

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

A Little Fun For Me

Every time I think I’m going to get back on the blogging train, I fall off and hard. Plus I always seem to decide catch up right before I head out of town, and of course this week is no exception. I still have a ton of sessions to blog, some posts I’ve been thinking about, as well as

Whoops!

If you are even half the procrastinator that I am, you may sometimes find yourself looking at a daunting task and just pretending it’s not there. That’s kind of what happened with this blog: I realized that I hadn’t written in a month and stuck my head in the sand. Then one month

Hannah

Oh gosh, I could go on and on and ON about this session. I met this family at a stunning location near Millarville, AB a few weeks ago. Gorgeous day, and pretty much the happiest baby I have ever met. I was so excited after I left, it was one of the most fun afternoons I’ve had. There’s

Alberta Children’s Hospital – 2011

This year was another full day of meeting the most amazing kids around. Each one had their own spunky personality and a light in their eyes that was difficult to miss. If you are ever looking for a worthy organization to donate to you, I strongly urge you to consider the Alberta Children’s

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

Superhero Dork

Yesterday morning I was doing a little work before enjoying Mother’s Day and Charlotte came downstairs with a couple of my photo props on. I immediately sent her back upstairs to put on a supergirl costume so we could get a few photos. It was a quick 5 minute shoot, but I am loving the fact

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.
