Favourite shoot to date! | Calgary/Invermere Family Photographer08.12.10

Share/Save/Bookmark
Yep, that it was.  And trust me when I say I have had a ton of sessions that I have absolutely loved – I may have mentioned once or twice on my blog how much I love my job;)  However, when this client sent me a note months ago to ask me if I would come out to Invermere to shoot a session at the their summer home and document some of the fun things that they do when they are out there, I jumped at the chance.  I do have to mention that they sweetened the deal even more by offering their cabin to my family for the weekend as they were coming back to Calgary for the weekend.  There was no way that I could say no – not only could I do an awesome “day in the life” session but I would get family time in the mountains.  OKAY!  For the record…I would have accepted without the sweetner;)  There is definitely something about shooting a family when they are in their environment and doing things that they love to do.

We started at their place with bike rides (yes,this is staged as they typically wear helmets), a milkshake, dog piles; then it was off to Lake Lillian for a little paddle board; next stop, skipping rocks at the creek and then finally off to the beach for ice cream and playing in the water.  AND most importantly…the celebration of 10 years of marriage.  FUN! This is only a fraction of the pictures but I needed to get a quick post up as a sincere thank you for a great weekend! N and G, thank you very much for your hospitality!  _DSC0397a copy_DSC0681a copy_DSC0409a copy_DSC0568a copy_DSC0616aa copy_DSC0632aa copy_DSC0635a copy_DSC0685a copy_DSC0693aa copy_DSC0698aa copy_DSC0705a copy_DSC0796aa copy_DSC0958a_DSC0976a_DSC0990aa copy_DSC1002aaa copy_DSC1039a copy_DSC1040a copy_DSC1075aa copy_DSC1084a copy_DSC1088a copy_DSC1212aaa copy_DSC1226a_DSC1276a copy

Pedalheads | Calgary Children's Photographer08.11.10

Share/Save/Bookmark
I recently did a shoot for Pedalheads bike camps.  If you follow my blog you know how impressed I was with this company last year.  My son attended one of their camps last year and had an absolute blast (not to mention learned a ton of balance and skill on his bike).  We bike a lot as a family so it is so nice that he has the confidence and skill on his bike to join us for long rides.  This year I received a note from Pedalheads about doing commercial work for them and it worked out that the shoots could be done the same week that I had both of my children enrolled in the camp.  This was a really awesome perk for me to be there at the same time as my children.  Once again I was extremely impressed with this organization.  Their staff and instructors are fantastic with the children.  The programs are well organized.  It was so fun for me to witness/capture the determination, delight and pride on the children’s faces as they gained the confidence on their bikes.  So here are a few of the pictures from the shoot (and a couple of extra from the last day of my own children on the slip n’slide).

Focus | Calgary Family Photographer08.09.10

Share/Save/Bookmark
This family and I got out a couple of weeks ago for a shoot.  We did not get very far from their backyard before we were completely attacked by mosquitoes though.  The mosquitoes have taken over Calgary in the last few weeks – I guess it is what you get with the rain.  We still had a lot of fun though.  This girl is very loved and we had a little giggle about her being the focus in the pictures.  Once you have children it is the way it is! N, J and N, it was a pleasure working with you. I will have the rest of your gallery up soon.Calgary Family Photographer0aCalgary Family Photographer1Calgary Family PhotographerCalgary Family Photographer2Calgary Family Photographer0Calgary Family Photographer0aa

Invermere photo session | Calgary Photographer07.08.10

Share/Save/Bookmark
I will be in Invermere for a few sessions August 5th – 8th and have availability for two more sessions. If you would like to book a session during this time, please contact me at (403) 701-0106. The setting will be awesome for capturing some fun, relaxed, family moments!

And because I need a picture, here is a shot of my husband on his birthday this past week. We were on the Shuswap on vacation at a friend’s cottage. Love the determination…this guy is amazing at everything he does! Although I managed to get up on the wakeboard, I, fairly promptly, did a face plant…it was graceful and thankfully not captured on camera. Back to skis next year;)

We play by their rules | Calgary Baby Photographer06.30.10

Share/Save/Bookmark
This session was supposed to be just of the little girl rather than family pictures this time. Well, the little one decided that her mom and dad needed to be in the pictures too. So, of course, we got a bunch of her on her own but I loved the interaction pictures so much that I share a few. C & S, it was great to see you again…L is adorable. We captured a bunch of her cute tricks;)

I am off for a weekend away…without my computer this time – whoa! I will have limited access to email and so if you do not hear back from me, you will early next week. Happy Canada Day and Fourth of July for some of you!
