Rain, rain… | Calgary Children's Photographer06.01.10

I am not one to complain about the weather so I will stop there. The little one was peering out the window yesterday with her little pug nose squished against the window and singing away…because really nothing should be done without singing. She was not singing the aforementioned song but we have been cooped up a little and so it came to mind when I saw this one. I love that she sings ALL the time. That is if she is not talking…and I won’t lie…at times it all gets a little overwhelming. But then, would I want it any other way? No way!

Petti-skirts | Calgary Children's Photographer05.25.10

Share/Save/Bookmark
So here is the follow up to the shot of the mom and girls in the last post.  We had a fantastic shoot – gorgeous girls, fun petti-skirts from Child at Heart, awesome location and what turned out to be fantastic weather.  I was so excited for this shoot.  I have been wanting to get out with these skirts for awhile and knew just the client to incorporate them into their shoot.

It was so nice to get outside again! I have a ton of location shoots coming up through June. I only have a few sessions remaining in July and August if you would like to take advantage of the nice weather.

This is a quick sneak peek for my client from yesterday morning. There was a bit of teasing on Facebook about the pictures bringing her to tears. I had to share one because I it is not fair for me to tease. There are a ton of pictures from this shoot and I will be sharing more next week but here is one for now. A, you look stunning. Thank you to you and the girls for a very fun morning! calgary children's photographer2

New art | Calgary Baby Photographer05.20.10

Share/Save/Bookmark
So in the midst of changing my logo out, I had to change out one of the large art pieces that I had in the entrance to the studio. Since it was a large piece of canvas, I thought about having the logo trimmed off and having it re-wrapped but I also thought that it would be a great memory to keep and it would allow me to start to fill the walls in my own house;) I also decided not to because as I was working with a new vendor for the display for Cherry Four, I fell in love with a sample they had. So I had this 30×40 mounted on a rounded piece of steel. STUNNING! Last year a few client were asking for something new and different and this fits this criteria well. I have a few more things in the works and will share as I get them completed.

Social Series #4 – Photography Basics05.14.10

So last year I began hosting a series of evenings highlighting other local entrepreneurs who were discussing topics that I found interesting and I thought that my clients would also find interesting.  I knew when I started this that I would probably have to turn the tables and speak on the topic that I love at some point.  Now talking about some thing that I am totally passionate about is not a problem…speaking to a group of people on the other hand is.  I have a HUGE fear of public speaking regardless of the number of times that I have done it.  I have done ENDLESS presentations through my CMA and MBA.  But there happened to be the one time at the beginning of my MBA studies that I fainted during a presentation…yep, fainted!  So for the remainder of my studies, I was known as “the girl that fainted”.  This label does not make it easier to get up in almost every course to speak to a bunch of people that are essentially “competing” with you.  Competing may not be the right word but you know there is always the person in the class that wants to ask the question to “one up” you or at least that is how it feels when you have gone through what I felt was a traumatic event.  THANKFULLY, last night was not like that at all…it helps to be surrounded by people who support you and love what you do.  It does not hurt to adore the topic that you are speaking about too!

So, why did I choose to talk about photography (beyond the obvious)…I have had a ton of client requests to do classes over the last couple of years.  So many of my clients own DSLRs and take a lot of pictures of their children.  One common problem though is that they are still using these fancy cameras like a point and shoot – switching to auto.  You will not be able to tell the stories that you want without being able to manipulate the features of your camera to make a picture!  So this is where I began!  Last night we only dove into a few points because the last thing that I wanted to do was throw a TON of information at you and then scare you into setting it back to auto.  Clients took away a few things to work on.  This also leaves room for sequels;)

Now due to the overwhelming response to this seminar (and the fact that I did not faint last night), I will be offering another session in the near future.  For the clients that are interested, please let me know if a daytime or nighttime session works better.

I, SERIOUSLY, appreciate everyone’s enthusiasm and support.  Not only does it inflate my ego but it helps me face and hopefully finally conquer one of my greatest fears.

Here is one of the pictures of my little one that I took yesterday morning that was used in the presentation (her bedhead was too awesome not to capture).  You can’t do this in AUTO!
