We're hunting wabbits! | Calgary Baby Photographer03.21.10

Well, okay, the dad at this session might have been. He was not overly keen on his son being dressed up in bunny ears but Easter is coming and it was SO adorable! This is one of my Watch Me Grow clients now at 8 months! I know that the mom has been anxiously waiting to see these but I knew that I was going to have a bunch to show and wanted to make sure that I had been through them all before posting. I had to show some of the interactions ones…how he is now standing…the chubby little toes and hands…his amazing eyes…so much fun!

Another reason why things are taking a bit longer right now is my nanny is back in the Philippines visiting her children…amazingly for the first time since she came to Canada three years ago. It has been really exciting planning this with her…I pretty sure that I have been as excited as she has been. If I could have made it work, I would have been on the plane with her just to be able to capture her 4 children’s faces when she got off the plane not to mention the opportunity to experience her culture! One day! Anyway, she is very much missed here right now but I am so thrilled that she is able to spend time with her family and begin to prepare for them to move to Canada!

I will keep working through everything as quickly as I can but I do have to say I am also enjoying the time with my children. I have been taking the opportunity to capture a lot of fun times with them.

That look | Calgary Newborn Photographer03.15.10

Share/Save/Bookmark
Now I have to apologize to the other families that I am jumping the queue by posting this family before a few others…I had to when I saw this look. This is a look that I know well! When N first came in for her maternity session she seemed a bit scared about having a baby (it could also have been that I was videotaping the session;)). This fear is something that I personally understand. When I was pregnant with my son I was PETRIFIED…not just scared! Anyone who knew me at this time knew that I did not have much of a maternal instinct in me. I was NEVER the one to hold the babies when girls came into the office on their maternity leaves. So needless to say this lack of maternal instinct had me a little scared. Well the picture below hit home to me as I was downloading these tonight from this afternoon’s session. This is exactly the way that I looked at my son. From the moment that I first saw him! This instantly found maternal instinct that was born with him was noticeable to everyone around me (and mentioned a lot). And this instinct now allows me to see and understand it in others…and is truly what made me realize this passion of capturing it. M & N, she is gorgeous. N, you look so relaxed as a new mom despite the lack of sleep and colic.

Sneak…| Calgary Children's Photographer03.15.10

I’m back!  I know…you did not know I was away.  I was sneaky this time.  Actually it was more of a case of not having time to blog before departing and although I took my laptop it spent most of my vacation closed!  So nice!  My family and I were in Mexico for the last couple of weeks!  Fun…lot of stories…which I will share over the next little while.  I am right back into the swing of things and already have a few sessions to share so those will be coming too.  Here is just one of my little one though for now and her ADORABLE curls while we were away.  More soon!

Video | Calgary Photographer02.28.10

So I have been mentioning a few projects that I have been working on over the last little while and so many of them are starting to get completed.  The logo was one thing that I wanted to freshen up after 5 years.  It was exciting to roll that out last week and get some awesome feedback.  Another project that I have been working on was a video of a photo experience with Tot Shots.  It is a chance to see me, the studio and how a typical session works with me.  I mentioned a few months ago, a lot of clients are wanting to do their research and meet with me to see the studio and get to know me.  Of course, you are always welcome to come meet with me to ensure that I am the photographer for you but I know how busy we all are so thought that this might help.

I have to give Jess complete credit for putting it all together.  Part of the reason that it has taken me so long to get this done was because it is hard to find the time to learn a new editing program/process and secondly I really prefer to be behind the camera!  There are a few other things that I want to incorporate at some point but here is the first attempt…click HERE to link to the video section on my website.
