Pilates05.28.15

I have had the pleasure of working with this mom and her family for many years. Andrea been a pilates coach and instructor for a couple of years and needed someone to take some pictures for her website. I have not done pilates yet but have always been intrigued by it as it looks like it would be right up my alley for a fitness routine – strength training, core work and balance building.

I jumped at the chance to help her as I really wanted to see the routine from her. She is detailed and her posture is always amazing so I was pretty certain that she would be an amazing instructor. She did not disappoint – even though we were taking “posed” shots and not going through a work out she walked through it like it was a routine. Describing form and positions for maximum benefit and to avoid injury. I LOVE that!! I have worked out for over 20 years and form has always been what I have noticed through various workouts and instructors. I have left yoga classes where it was downright dangerous. It is imperative to know the ramifications of specific moves and the exact way to do it so that you do avoid injury – particularly as you start to get older in your vintage as some of us are:).

If you are into pilates or are thinking of getting into it, I highly recommend giving Andrea a call.  Her website link is http://www.andreapilates.com/home.html.

Leaving Redlands05.16.15

*Warning…picture overload:)* I will start off by apologizing for the extreme number of pictures in this post. It is definitely going down as a favourite shoot of mine:). This family is leaving Redlands soon and asked if I would help them document important pieces of it for them. From coffee at their favourite spot to a stroll/scooter downtown to their gorgeous work campus to their home. Thank you for choosing me to capture this for you! I will definitely miss capturing this little family but wish them the best as they head closer to family!

We just like being together04.30.15

“We just like being together” were the words that this client wrote on the information form that I sent out to her when asked what their favourite things are to do as a family. I love this…as a parent (and then future grandparent and in this case a great-grandparent)…this is all you could want from your family.

I have had the opportunity to spend a fair amount of time with this client as we document the first years of her boys’ lives. I also got to spend a morning with the whole family a couple of trips ago as I was invited for brunch. And they really do “just like being together”…from cooking together to playing on the floor to putting on little musical shows. So kudos to Nana who is not only turning 90 soon (which is cause enough for celebration) but for having a family that “just like being together”. calgary family photographer

Laughing04.27.15

This is the first time that I had the pleasure of working with this family. The boys were a little shy at first and then relaxed so we could get some laughter shots and great smiles:). The laughing shot is one of my favourites!
