LOVE | Calgary Child Photographer11.10.10

I LOVE this shoot!!! This shoot was set up as a mother/daughter date (and I got to tag along and capture it). The daughter was allowed/encouraged to choose whatever she wanted to do and I got to capture it. Seriously FUN!! The best part about this session was the text that I received right after the session from the mom stating that her daughter could not stop talking about all of the things that she got to do. What more does a child want then to decide (at least for a little while).

Yes, you saw this family a few weeks ago on the blog and the shoot leaned more towards what the son wanted to do (remember the dancing;). This was set up to see the daughter’s personality…energetic, fun-loving, thoughtful, stylish, silly, and awesomely unique. Love it!

Beautiful family and beautiful light | Calgary Family Photographer11.03.10

I have thoroughly enjoyed getting outside with so many of my clients this year. I think that many of us have had cabin fever after the dismal summer that we had in Calgary this year. We have had a fantastic fall and it has been so nice to get out and enjoy it. This family has been a client for many years now and I love working with them. They are warm and down to earth. It was a nice relaxing shoot strolling through Griffith Woods.

These next two were back to back images. I loved the look on their faces – particularly the brother being caught off guard. And then in the next frame his response. So cute!

Who would you want as your pilot? | Calgary Family Photographer11.02.10

I have had the great pleasure of shooting this family over the years. I even had the pleasure of working with their cousins and grandma at the last shoot:) They are such a warm and loving family – an absolute pleasure to work with. This is the first shoot with their daughter and I was SO excited to meet her. She is adorable and as most girls in the house rules the roost;) We had been holding off for the fall and to get a nice day and wow did we finally luck out on the weather! It was gorgeous! On to the pictures!!!

Almost five years later…|Calgary Family Photographer10.28.10

Share/Save/Bookmark
Here is a little blast from the past for you;) I shot this client almost 5 years ago (unbelievably I found a picture). She became a huge champion for my business which I am ever so grateful for. In the last 5 years she has since gone back to school and become a massage therapist and started her own business – Love 2 Heal (www.love2heal.ca). This is how we got reconnected this year. I started seeing Ang after I “ignored” a soccer injury for a few months (ball to the head…embarrassing story…we will skip this part). Well, ignoring the injury did not make it go away and caused further issues leading to many trips for massage (and physio). Unfortunately for Ang, I am probably not an ideal client. I am terrible at thinking ahead to make appointments (thank goodness she is a FB friend and sends me reminders;). Also, like to talk A LOT during our appointments. I am not one to relax and have a massage (I rarely relax as it is). In my defense though, I think that this is mostly a coping mechanism for the pain that she has been putting me through in order to correct the damage that I have ignored. I am happy to say though that I am finally feeling much better (the feeling has returned to my finger tips) and Ang is definitely to thank for it. She is a fantastic massage therapist and I am thrilled to be able to refer her;)

Now, not only is she amazing at what she does, she has an amazing family. I knew it the first time that I met them. Their pictures spent many years on the wall in the first studio because they were one of the closest and fun loving families that I have ever shot (not to mention incredibly cute). It was so fun to get to hang out with them a couple of weeks ago and discover that this closeness had not changed. When Ang sent in the “get to know you” form that I provide it listed soccer and guitar as interests. She also mentioned that they might be a bit shy in front of the camera. So I told them to bring the soccer ball and guitars. This was SO fun and it totally put everyone at ease. Ang, I apologize that my customer service is lacking a bit in timeliness of this post but I do hope that what we captured makes up for it.

Now I have to start off by saying that the title of this post took a bit of research. And the research started with google searches of “One Ton Tomata, I need a one ton tomata” as this song is known in my house. Yes, sad that I did not know the real words particularily since Cuba does happen to be place that I have travelled a couple of times (and a favourite at that).

The point is…this is the song that the father broke out into and his son into dance in the middle of Griffith Woods! FUN! Seriously, this is not a part of the father that I have seen (despite hearing rumours that this is more typical). I do have to say that after 5 years of working with this family…it is about time!

I love working with this family each year and so glad that we got to head into the woods where mom and son spend a lot of time. We also got to see the very thoughtful side of their daughter. It was a great shoot.

L and R it is always a pleasure working with your family!
