Stunning Maternity | Calgary Maternity Photographer12.08.09

Share/Save/Bookmark
I have been so excited to share the next images but had to get through most of the Christmas work before I could. This series is actually made up of two sessions a few weeks ago. I got a note from the mom a couple of days before our scheduled maternity session and her partner was not going to be back from Montreal for the session. She asked if we could break the session into two sessions – a quick one with just her and then a quick one with the both of them (as he was then turning around to travel overseas). So, of course, I said yes but I also asked something back (don’t you just love it when there is a catch). I asked if she would mind if Jess video taped the session as I have been compiling footage of sessions to give everyone an idea of how a session works with me (debut early 2010, hopefully!). The reason for the video is that I have had a lot of clients ask to meet with me prior to the session to meet me as well as they would also like to see the studio in advance. I am always happy to meet prior but I also want to make it easier for you…thus figured a video would help. Anyway, there will be more on that later.

So I was so excited when N agreed…please note that this conversation occurred via email and so I give her a ton of credit for agreeing without having met me (and Jess). Well the session was FUN! Not only did we get some footage but we got to play with natural light, as well as studio. N is absolutely stunning and adorable as can be! Not sure that those two characteristics typically go together but this time they do.

Once her partner returned, they were back in for a second session and they are ADORABLE together. I can’t even wait for the newborn pictures!

Mass sneak peek | Calgary Children's Photographer11.26.09

I am feeling bad about not giving each of these families their own separate sneak peeks but this is my busiest week of the year and I just can’t.  I am sure everyone else is busy and does not need to take the time to read right now too.  There have been some amazing sessions and I have been having so much fun! Galleries to come! Lots more pictures to share!

I had the great pleasure of capturing this little guy’s newborn pictures a few months ago. A little look back at this here. I can’t even believe it he is already three months old…it is amazing how much he has changed already.

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!

Lots to celebrate | Calgary Children's Photographer11.05.09

Share/Save/Bookmark
This family came to me this year with lots to celebrate – 10 years together, new baby, becoming a big sister, new home and special birthdays! I am so glad that they decided to capture it all with pictures. They were an awesome family to work with! They had received their H1N1 vaccinations the day prior so the little girl did not live up to her “high voltage” nickname but she did awesome for me. I even like some of the more mellow pictures of her. It was a pleasure meeting you and I will have the rest of your gallery up soon!
