Thank you | Calgary Family Photographer08.27.13

At the end of this session, this mom said, “thank you so much for continuing to come back”.  My response, “Thank you, I can’t even imagine not getting to see (insert her son’s name here) grow every year…”.  I did not begin a business 9 years ago (revolving around something I adore doing) to walk away from it and not be able to see your family’s continue to grow and develop.  This business is my pride and joy (of course, beyond my children) and the relationships that I have with my clients, extremely important to me.  I have built this and I am damn proud of it.  It is the little bit of me that I get to share. It is also the creative outlet for me.  Yes, I still have the accountant in me and have to make the numbers work too but I will cut expenses in other areas to ensure that I can continue to deliver what I started with you.  So THANK YOU for continuing to trust me with your family memories.  Of course, a thank you to my husband, who holds down the fort when I am away…for the most part…seems the kids did not bathe while I was away for 3 days this past time:).  Will have to add it to the list next time.

Struck me | Calgary Family Photographer08.26.13

As I was choosing favourites from this session, I was struck by these three non-smiling pictures.  Of course, I chose a bazillion smiling ones too but I always like to have a couple that are not.  We had a ton of fun at this session so promise to share more of those…however, today these caught my eye.

Family Summer update07.15.13

I have fallen off of my family updates lately and have had a few requests so thought I would put a quick update of what we have been up to over the summer here.  Camps, birthdays, road trips, adventures, and BBQ’scalgary family photographer:).

Client wall | Calgary Family Photographer07.10.13

A client recently shared her wall of my photos that we have done over the years.  She has done a great job putting it together so thought that I would share.  calgary family photographer wall art

Flood victims | Calgary Family Photographer06.26.13

It has been a week since the flooding and I have been trying to figure out what to say.  My family has not been impacted by the flooding in Alberta but our heart goes out to the people that have been.  Especially the families that have lost loved ones.

A number of my clients and friends were affected by the flooding and I have been in contact with ones that I know live in the flooded areas.    I have assured the families that I know that live in these areas that I still have their images and that I will replace their memories at no charge.  I am going to extend this offer here to my clients in case anyone has moved into an affected area and I did not know. I cannot guarantee that I still have your images but if I have worked with you in the last 4 years, chances are very good that I still have them.  Although seemingly small, pictures would be the first thing that I would worry about if I was in a similar situation.  Earlier this year when threatened with evacuation due to grass fires, my car was filled with hard drives, pictures and mementos from my mum that could not be replaced.  There was nothing of “value” but that car load was priceless to me.

This is one of the families impacted by the flooding and I am still going through their images from our most recent session not even 2 weeks ago.  Although the damage was fairly extensive to their home, they were able to save their photoscalgary family photographer.  If you were not, please contact me.

I have to add that I am so very proud to be Albertan.  To watch all of the acts of generosity and kindness on social media has made me so incredibly proud.  I only wish that I was currently there with my rubber boots to help.
