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!

Final "Fall" pictures | Calgary Children's Photographer11.06.09

Share/Save/Bookmark
So I was able to sneak in one more “fall” shoot this past weekend. It was still a bit chilly ┬ábut I am so glad that we decided to get outside. This is the fourth year that I have worked with this family. I LOVE watching the children grow. These girls are always a pleasure to work with – they are so sweet. The little one is usually quite shy but was full of stories this time and grabbed my hand as we were walking to our location. The eldest daughter has now lost some teeth and was so proud to show me! A & R thank you for your patronage.Calgary Children's Photographer 33Calgary Children's Photographer 35Calgary Children's Photographer 36Calgary Children's Photographer 30Calgary Children's Photographer 34Calgary Children's Photographer 31Calgary Children's Photographer 32

Gorgeous girls | Calgary Children's Photographer11.06.09

Share/Save/Bookmark
This is the second year that I have had the pleasure of working with this family. They are a dream shoot…look at their gorgeous dark features. The girls are not only gorgeous but so well-behaved. I am so used to the energy of a boy (and this energy even seems to wear off on my daughter too) so it is such a pleasure to work with two little girls. Don’t get me wrong…I like a lot of energy…you may have noticed I like to be busy myself! However, it is nice to slow down and capture the relationship of sisters. J & M it was great to see you again!

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!

Overwhelming admiration | Calgary Family Photographer11.02.09

Share/Save/Bookmark
I have overwhelming amounts of respect and admiration for this family! They have been presented with obstacle after obstacle and they still continue to fight and maintain a positive energy. Their son has a rare form of dwarfism and continually faces life-threatening circumstances (his story is described on their website www.ourlittlemiracle.info). They are one of the most inspiring families that I have ever had the pleasure of working with and I am so honoured to have the opportunity to help them tell their story through pictures. This mother’s devotion, love, patience and strength is so completely inspirational! Unfortunately dad was not able to make it to the session but we will be sure to have them all back soon for a family update!
