"But You Love Your Job" | Calgary Family Photographer11.14.12

I don’t often complain about being busy.  We are all busy and I, for one, choose to be busy.  I own my own businesses so being busy is better than the alternative:)  This fall has been different from busy seasons in the past though as we do not have full-time house/child help and both my husband and I have been travelling a lot.  So there have been some late nights and early mornings (more early mornings as I am better at that time:) working when the kids are sleeping so as to not cut into their time too much…although I have been having to do that too.  This weekend after shooting, I came home to make dinner and clean up a messy house and in my tired state said “Maybe I shouldn’t work” (remember I am coming off of almost 3 weeks of sole parenting too:)…and both of my children chimed in at the same time with the same line “BUT you LOVE your job!”.  I immediately snapped out of my overtired daze and replied, “Yes, I do LOVE my job”.  And so as “busy” as I make myself, I am SOOOO glad that my kids are seeing the important part – and it is offsetting my mom guilt a bit right now.  That is a pretty amazing lesson for them:)…of course, there was then a reinforcement talk about how they need to help out over the next few weeks so Mommy can do what she loves.

Things will return to a normal pace but til then, here are a few more from the job that I LOVE!

2012 | Calgary Family Photographer11.09.12

I am way behind on blogging and not going to get caught up on that for a few weeks as I am in the throes of busy season.  I just wanted to let you know that 2012 is officially booked up.  I have booked all of the spots for client sessions and have taken on a couple of commercial projects through the end of the year so will not be able to take any additional 2012 clients.  I am already booking into 2013 so please let me know if you are considering a portrait session in the new year.

Here is one from a recent session with this adorable 3 month old!  Love her excitement as she sees her dad bend over her:)  Love this age!

I promise to share more of the client sessions from the fall/winter soon as well as some of the fun new products that I have been working on with clients!

One Year | Calgary Family Photographer10.15.12

It is amazing how fast another year has gone with this family.  This is the first time that we have done a location session but perfect timing with their son just turning 1 and the weather and colour being as gorgeous as they were:)  The kids could be on the move as we strolled through the park.  The kids are growing so quickly and I am so honoured to get to capture this for my clients:)  W family, it was fantastic to see you!  I will have more soon! (as I will for a bunch of other clients…I am very behind with blogging).

Toddler sessions | Calgary Family Photographer10.09.12

Are busy but SOOOO fun!  I had a great time running (literally) around with this family – fortunately I train for this stuff:)  I love the shots of these two interacting together.  Love the look on their faces as they are playing tag:)  Had to get a shot of those chubby little knuckles too.  W family, great to see you again!

Promise | Calgary Family Photographer09.01.12

I have been sending little sneak peeks of a couple of the funny images from this session to the client but have been promising to put a proper post up.  So I am taking Labour Day weekend literally:)  I have so enjoyed working with this family over the last 18 months.  We did a little 1 year session for the little one early this year but the older children could not make it so we have been planning this family shoot since then.  The older children are so awesome with the little one.  We had to capture them together as well as a family picture.  It was also nice to get outside this time (despite the smell in this park due to recent planting:) so we could play and move.  M family it was great to see you as always!  Looking forward to the gorgeous backdrop for next year’s session!
