Triplet update | Calgary Children's Photographer11.19.09

Share/Save/Bookmark
Now I did this session a few weeks ago and did not get a sneak peek up because I am just not able to get a post of everyone’s session right now. I am trying to get through as many as I can but am making galleries priority so everyone can get their Christmas cards as soon as possible. Anyway, I am having to go back and post these as I have had a lot of questions from other clients about these triplets. I get the opportunity to shoot these children each year and a few of my other clients (and blog followers) asked about the triplet’s pictures. How funny is that! So here are the famous triplets for this year. I was amazed looking at how grown up these guys look this year! I can’t even believe how quickly time flies. I also got to take pictures of the triplet’s eastern Canada cousins this year. I will try to share those at some point too. Doesn’t the standing picture look like it could be an ad for Burberry;) Oh, and we always do a funny face shot and it is consistent that the daughter in the middle smiles. I love how their individual personalities shine through. This daughter mentioned to my husband one year at a mutual friend’s function that she is serious and does not make a face. LOVE individuality!

Gorgeous girls | Calgary Children's Photographer11.19.09

These girls are daughters of a friend of mine and I get the opportunity to photograph them each year. Not only are they gorgeous little girls but their grandma is an amazing seamstress and made these beautiful dresses. I look forward to working with these girls each year!  S and D it was great to see you again and so glad that you got in! I will have the rest up soon.

A vintage feel | Calgary Family Photographer11.12.09

Share/Save/Bookmark
As I mentioned in my previous post, Jess and I were trying some different techniques on images from a session. This was that session. I don’t use a lot of effects on my images as I feel my style is real.simple.clean.fun. This is also the reason that I don’t use a lot of props. I think that everyone is uniquely gorgeous and I don’t want to distract with anything. However, as I was going through the images from this session, I thought the little girl had a very vintage doll look to her and thought that we needed to try something on the images. Jess was here while I was editing so I asked her opinion…well, it turned into a little try this, oh, what about this,… Well, it was a ton of fun and a great learning experience. Photoshop is such an amazing piece of software and there are so many fun things that you can do (in so many different ways).

This is a client that I have shot a few times but have never had the pleasure of shooting the whole family together.  It was so nice.  The children are adorable together and the family about to welcome a new member early next year.  S, it was great to see you again and meet D.  I will have your gallery up soon.

I like to move it… | Calgary Family Photographer11.11.09

…move it. Was the theme to this session and the song that was playing. It was definitely a busy session with a 5 year old and 2 year old twins. It was awesome though. The images that resulted from this session were fantastic.

Not only did I capture some fun, candid shots but also got some more posed pictures of the children. As you will see I have done some processing on these for a variation. I can’t take credit for this style. My assistant, Jess, has some amazing, creative ideas and was showing me some of her techniques on other images. So I thought that I would apply it to a few of these to see what they looked like. I quite liked the result so thought that I would share it. It has been a lot of fun to work with someone and playing around with different looks. Digital photography is such a neat art!

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!
