Update02.11.08

I shot this little girl prior to starting my business a few years ago. I have now had the pleasure of working with the whole family. She has an 8 month old adorable brother who is the largest baby I have ever seen. I thought that I knew big babies (my son was almost 30 pounds at a year) but this “little” guy has him beat. I really enjoyed working with the whole family – their smiles were totally infectious!Blog37

WOW!!!02.07.08

I am blown away by the response, feedback and subsequent generosity that has been offered by my clients!! I just wanted to publicly say “THANK YOU SO MUCH”. It absolutely warms my heart to see this – I am not certain why I did not anticipate this as I have amazing clients. I know that there is a tough road ahead for a lot of people with this project but I know that the positive side is going to be immeasurable. Thank you so much to everyone for their offers the recipients are going to be overwhelmed (I do not feel that it is my place to publicly outline other offers, at least without confirming with them, this will be kept for the families that I work with). And just because I must have a picture, here is one of the other things that warms my heart everyday!Blog48

Give of Yourself02.05.08

So as I mentioned earlier in the year, I have been working on a “give of yourself” project. I have to begin with a bit of a background. Today is the first anniversary of my mother’s passing – so needless to say an extremely difficult time for me but extremely fitting for what I would like to get started on. My mum passed away last year after a six year battle with cancer. One thing that I did when we found out that the cancer had “returned in an advanced stage” three years ago was I had family portraits done. Obviously pictures are extremely important to me and so this was something that I felt was incredibly important. Today and everyday those pictures are one of my most cherished possessions.

I initially wanted to focus on children with life-threatening diseases but have decided to turn it around and have it be a gift to the children faced with a parent that is fighting for their life. Because as a parent I think that we always want to think of our children and give them something to remember us by.

I know how devastating cancer in particular is and how difficult of a time it is for families faced with a similar situation. I recognize that professional pictures are probably the last thing on most people’s minds. However I also know that most families are trying to spend as much time together and to have as many good memories as they possible can together. This is why I think that it is only fitting to capture these moments. As such, I am offering a complimentary session and CD package to those families where a parent of young children is faced with the fact that they have a limited time left with their family. I think that these children will need something like this to cherish and look at in years to come.

As a tribute to my mum for Mother’s Day this offer of my talent will be available for March and April.

Because this is a sensitive and personal issue, I would prefer that if you know of anyone in this type of situation that you forward this information to them and they can in turn contact me if this is something that they are comfortable with and would like to do. My only request is that the recipient be referred by one of my previous clients. I can only imagine that there are a lot of families in this situation in Calgary but I am only one person and I will still need to maintain my business and family commitments through this time period.

It is my goal to develop something more permanent but I am using these two months as a trial to assess response. I am open to suggestions and feedback.

Smiles02.04.08

I have shot this little one three times over the past year and we get more and more smiles each time. We had a lot of fun with the session, capturing all of the good times they have together – running into dad’s arms over and over and climbing up mom! I expect she had a good nap that afternoon!Blog32b

Cute!01.29.08

This is one of my son’s friends from preschool and her little brother. Aren’t they cute! There were so many pictures – it was hard to choose. Especially the dancing ones (and the “dancing face” – her mom will know what I mean). I will try to have the rest up ASAP.Blog28_copy
