We finally meet | Calgary Family Photographer11.11.09

Share/Save/Bookmark
So it seems that this new client was actually a large contributor to the beginning of my business almost 5 years ago. I ask each of my client’s who has referred them (as I have a Referral Bonus in place) and one client came to me four years ago without me knowing the person who referred them. That client then went on to refer me to many of her friends who then in turn referred me again. Anyway, when my family was out at a u-pick farm in the summer we waited in line behind a lady. The line up was quite long so we got an opportunity to talk quite extensively and we came to realize that we had met years ago in a UPS store as I was picking up my first set of business cards and she had taken a card at that time. Life had gotten away (as it does) and she had never come for pictures however, she had passed my name on to her friends. Well that client had gone on to spread the word. And that original client is scheduled to come later today (using a referral bonus). I do want to thank all of my “referrers”.

So beyond how this client found me I have to talk about how amazing they were to shoot. Her older son is one of the most intelligent, well-behaved and creative little guys that I have met! I learned about rockets, received pictures from him to decorate my fridge in the studio and thoroughly enjoyed working with him. So to top this story off, dad works from home as a graphic designer and stay-at-home dad and he truly is the baby whisperer! It was so neat to watch a dad that was so comfortable with his children. K and J, it was an ABSOLUTE pleasure to finally meet you!

So the little guy asked if he could take a picture at the end. The picture on the right is his shot of his dad and brother. He is a natural!

Overwhelming admiration | Calgary Family Photographer11.02.09

Share/Save/Bookmark
I have overwhelming amounts of respect and admiration for this family! They have been presented with obstacle after obstacle and they still continue to fight and maintain a positive energy. Their son has a rare form of dwarfism and continually faces life-threatening circumstances (his story is described on their website www.ourlittlemiracle.info). They are one of the most inspiring families that I have ever had the pleasure of working with and I am so honoured to have the opportunity to help them tell their story through pictures. This mother’s devotion, love, patience and strength is so completely inspirational! Unfortunately dad was not able to make it to the session but we will be sure to have them all back soon for a family update!

4 months | Calgary Baby Photographer10.30.09

Share/Save/Bookmark
Here is another one of my Watch Me Grow babies! This little guy is now 4 months old and cute as can be! I love how they are intrigued by their hands, feet and dad’s laugh. It is such a fun age to work with. He has been dealing with some health issues so hopefully he will continue to be a little fighter! R & R more soon!

Have a great Halloween weekend!

Watch Me Grow Round 2 | Calgary Maternity Photographer10.30.09

Share/Save/Bookmark
You may remember this client from their first Watch Me Grow year…well, they are back for round #2. This family is one of the most fun families to shoot. They have so much love for each other and have so much fun together. The evidence is in the pictures. K and N, I am so looking forward to the next year and to meeting your new little one!

As you will note there was a bit of a tongue theme to this session…it is so typical for the little guy’s to have their tongues sticking out a lot…whether they are concentrating to being shy. Well we mentioned this and it turned into the theme for the session. Might as well run with it;)

Bad Blogger | Calgary Family Photographer10.28.09

I have been so behind on blogging…selfishly I have been using this blogging time to focus on time with my children. This time of year is so crazy and they do not get a lot of time with me so I do try to focus as much “off” time on them as possible! I apologize though as clients’ are not getting sneak peeks and the clients booking that I keep sending here for ideas are not seeing some of the latest sessions. I will try to get a few posts up this week as I have had some awesome new and old clients and I have been having so much fun.

Here is a super fun session in celebration of this little guy’s first birthday. The eldest is a little more shy (because they usually are) and I love how she is biting her lip in one of the pictures. I have just finished doing a few client canvas orders where the little ones are biting their lips. One of the dads commented about his wife’s choice when he picked up their order. The mom and I LOVED the shot…these are always the shots that the moms will pick. WE love it when our children are doing things that they just do at certain ages (drooling, biting their lips, making faces, looking down). These are the things that we want to remember. In addition, of course, to the fun times together and so we always get lots of both! Here are just a few of my favourite moments from the session. More to come!
