Victoria01.10.18

If you have been with me for awhile, you will have seen these girls before. They have been with me for almost the entire time I have been shooting – 13 years! I saw them every year for an update until they moved to Victoria a couple of years ago. I spend a fair amount of time in Victoria since my grandparents are there so we have been trying to figure out a time to get a session in on one of my trips…it had not worked on previous trips though. Fortunately, they got in touch with me late last year just as I had booked a trip there in December. Yeah, so I was able to see the girls (and the puppy) again! I was shocked to see how much they had changed. I had always thought that older kids didn’t change very much…I do not believe that anymore…based on all of my clients and my own kids! I think that my son, in particular, has even changed a ton since we moved form California this summer!

Anyway, on to the pictures! Definitely will go down as one of my favourite sessions…but I say that a lot:). I will be in Victoria again this month and can always extend my trip…if anyone there is interested in a session:).

Child Portrait Project – the first edition for 201801.09.18

It is that time of year again where I run the mini sessions that I have called Child Portrait Project. These are for families that have missed out on a full session this fall or just want to capture a few images of their kids cuz they are changing so quick. I will be hosting one of these a month for the next 4 months so if you are not able to make this one, be sure to watch for the next…or you can send me a note for the information early:). This month the sessions will occur on Saturday, January 20th from 9am-4pm.

I have been a bit delinquent about posting some of these sessions so will make sure that I do over next next little while to give you ideas. Please send me an email to jody@totshots.ca to book your session.

Today looks a bit different…10.02.17

…with a layer of snow on the ground;). We have been having a beautiful fall though and it has been so awesome to see so many families for updates. The fall colours have been spectacular!! It has been a few years since I last saw this family and the girls had grown up so much. They are beautiful girls with fantastic energy. I loved how the older daughter would come up with ideas for images and then the little one wanted to do the same…so cute! More soon!

Thank you to this family and others!09.29.17

I have been thinking a lot lately about how lucky I am. I am not going to lie…the move back to Calgary has been a transition with some challenges…although for the large part has been smooth. We had made a life in Redlands and it is tough to get re-established again. Thank goodness for the wide open arms and familiar faces of friends, family and clients (which really just fall in the friend category:).

To this client and so many more of you…thank you so much for welcoming me back and supporting me all the way through the last 5.5 years while I commuted from Southern California. Capturing your family memories, is a huge part of me and I love every second of it! I am so thankful for the trust and support that I have received over the last 13 years that I have been working with so many of you. I really can’t express this enough. Being invited into your lives to capture these memories for you, is not one that I take lightly and I very much recognize you have choice. The words that I have heard over the last few weeks have filled me with absolute joy and even more energy (if that is possible:) for what I do. I will continue to work hard to deliver amazing service / a super fun experience / exceptional product!

I am so lucky to get to see this family each year. They are a joy and their love for each other just pours through the images. I love that I get to document this each year! Here is a just a little sneak peek for them!

Fall is here!09.14.17

The fall season has begun! It is such a gorgeous time of year and it was so fun to begin with this adorable little 2 year old and his family…dogs and all:). Although 2 is a busy age, it is absolutely one of my favourites. There are so many things to capture! We even got a little video to capture his giggle…it is still in the works with the rest of the images but I wanted to get a sneak peek out to mom as I know she is excited to see them:).

I still have a couple of spots remaining for fall pictures…it is so nice to be back and able to be more flexible for everyone!

More soon!
