Introducing a couple of additions…|Calgary Children's Photographer01.08.10

I have added a couple of pieces of equipment to the Tot Shots family. I am so excited!! It has been awhile since I upgraded my camera and there are a ton of amazing camera bodies out there that I have been drooling over. Well the time finally came!!! So here is an introduction to the D700 and a new fixed 105mm! My little one helped me test it out today so that I could be ready for this weekend. One of the reasons that wanted this model in particular was its ability at higher ISOs. I had to shoot a few natural light images at an ISO of 800. It is amazing…and I know that it can to better based on the reviews. I am so looking forward to getting outside with it this weekend!

The detail that the new lens can pick up is amazing. I can’t even wait to capture some newborn details over the next little while!

Have a great weekend!

It is more difficult to get shots of my son with him in school full days but here is one from a few evenings ago.Calgary Children's Photographer 2

Newborns | Calgary Newborn Photographer01.04.10

…a great way to end 2009 and begin 2010. These shots were from my last session of 2009. What a way to end the year and begin this blogging year. What a gorgeous baby! Look at her beautiful hair! One of the shots was a quick picture as mom was cuddling her baby (the backs of their heads). I love the feel of it!  I am so excited about all of the newborn sessions that I have coming up over the next few months!

Although this mom found me on the internet, we later discovered we are neighbours…small world. J and D, I look forward to seeing you around the neighbourhood. I will have the rest of your gallery up soon.

Happy 1st Birthday & Merry Christmas| Calgary Children's Photographer12.24.09

Share/Save/Bookmark
I had to post one more session before Christmas as these are this little one’s 1st birthday pictures. I won’t have the gallery out before Christmas (despite my intentions) but I had to post some pictures for the special occasion. As a fellow Christmas baby, I understand the importance of having our birthdays recognized during a busy time of year. I have always been asked if I like having my birthday around Christmas and I have always responded that I love it. My mum (and now all of the rest of the people in my life) have always made it special. So Happy Birthday December babies and Merry Christmas everyone…it is just fine to combine it!

Oh and the pettiskirt…I could not resist. I saw them when I went in to pick up my children’s “Christmas” outfits (I use this term loosely as I am fairly casual) at Child at Heart. I was going to use the skirt under my daughter’s dress, however, she would not put it on – she is as girly as me. So, it has ended up as a prop. I know, I have said that I am against props but there is something about a gorgeous pettiskirt. I have ended up with a black one as well as this raspberry one so there will definitely be a few more shots in the future.  Actually I know exactly who I will be shooting next with these!

Wall Art | Calgary Photographer12.23.09

One of the projects that I have had on the go for awhile was getting images up of ideas for wall art as this area has become a big part of my business.  I work with a professional framer and canvas supplier.  I have created a section on my website under the “gallery” section called “wall art” that illustrates some art pieces and how they can be arranged. This should help to give you an idea of sizing and display of canvas and frames.

Here is one of the images and there are a bunch more here on the website.

Twins on the way! | Calgary Maternity Photographer12.14.09

This adorable couple is expecting twins in the new year! Now, I know what you will be thinking when you scroll down…”I think that there has been a mix up”. Nope, this mommy is expecting twins. I could not believe it either – she is so tiny!

The couple was so adorable together. I love that! I can’t even wait to meet the twins in the new year! There are so many newborns coming to see me in the new year. Great way to start 2010. Still lots more to share from this year though!Calgary Maternity Photographer 13Calgary Maternity Photographer 14Calgary Maternity Photographer 15Calgary Maternity Photographer 11
Look at mom’s ripped arms! That is what a little pre-natal yoga will do. I seriously need to get back into a bit of exercise myself!Calgary Maternity Photographer 12
