"But You Love Your Job" | Calgary Family Photographer11.14.12

I don’t often complain about being busy.  We are all busy and I, for one, choose to be busy.  I own my own businesses so being busy is better than the alternative:)  This fall has been different from busy seasons in the past though as we do not have full-time house/child help and both my husband and I have been travelling a lot.  So there have been some late nights and early mornings (more early mornings as I am better at that time:) working when the kids are sleeping so as to not cut into their time too much…although I have been having to do that too.  This weekend after shooting, I came home to make dinner and clean up a messy house and in my tired state said “Maybe I shouldn’t work” (remember I am coming off of almost 3 weeks of sole parenting too:)…and both of my children chimed in at the same time with the same line “BUT you LOVE your job!”.  I immediately snapped out of my overtired daze and replied, “Yes, I do LOVE my job”.  And so as “busy” as I make myself, I am SOOOO glad that my kids are seeing the important part – and it is offsetting my mom guilt a bit right now.  That is a pretty amazing lesson for them:)…of course, there was then a reinforcement talk about how they need to help out over the next few weeks so Mommy can do what she loves.

Things will return to a normal pace but til then, here are a few more from the job that I LOVE!

Snow play | Calgary Family Photographer10.30.12

There could not have been a better family booked to play in the snow with me last Friday.  This family spends most of their time outside and particularly in the winter, skiing.  I love the look on this little girl’s face after being hit in the face with a snow ball by her brother…it absolutely says it all!  More soon from our fun shoot!  D family, thanks for enduring the cold with me!

Features | Calgary Family Photographer10.29.12

Stunning features…from the time that I met this family when the little guy was 18 months old, I have gotten to capture some of their stunning features.  From her piercing gorgeous eyes to his gorgeous eyelashes and freckles…not to mention the entire family’s warm hearts, hilarious wit and love for life!  My job brings me more joy than I can express.

Together | Calgary Family Photographer10.20.12

I love seeing work from previous years come together with images from recent sessions.  I shot this little girl blowing a kiss on the swing a couple of years ago (still one of my favourite images) and this year we did a few images on the swing at the end of the family session of her little brother.  Love watching families grow and memories come together:)  I will share more from the family session soon.

Could not have asked for a nicer family |Calgary Family Photographer10.17.12

This year has been a huge whirlwind with the move and all of the changes that have come with that.  I am SUPER thankful for this amazing family that is taking care of my house in Calgary.  We could not have asked for a nicer family to be living in our house.  They are from Australia and are truly lovely!  I think that it is absolutely obvious from the pictures as to how fun and loving they are.  It was absolutely my pleasure to be able to capture this for them!
