Playing catch-up | Calgary Family Photographer01.05.11

So when I get away from blogging I always find it a bit difficult to know where to begin when getting back. I have decided to jump back in with a mass post with a bunch of sessions that happened prior to Christmas that I did not get a chance to blog or did not blog because they were gifts. The post is filled with many clients that I have seen over the years as well as new clients. The last picture is of my own children from my “session” to get a few pictures for my grandma. I am terrible at prioritizing my own pictures so you will see this was not well planned out…it was a spontaneous 10 minutes prior to school with crazy hair and uncoordinated outfits (I think that there was even some breakfast on their faces). But it is real! I will be back posting on a regular basis and have a bunch of awesome shoots to share from the last couple of weeks:)

Winter Wonderland | Calgary Family Photographer12.09.10

Share/Save/Bookmark
Oh I do love winter! I know, weird, but I do. I also know I won’t be singing the same tune in April. I do love the first couple of months of winter. When this family asked me to do a winter session for them, I was thrilled! Particularly when it was still above -10, sunny and white!! I will clarify…I will probably not shoot in less than -10 – this shoot was cold (I believe I tweeted about pulling out my long underwear for it).

I actually got to work with part of this family earlier this year when we shot the other side of their family. It was really fun to get to work with the children again. The boys, in particular, were having a blast…the girls were cold though. Even the pooch did not make it into too many shots as he was also cold…but so cute!
Thank you for having me out…tons more to come:)

Photographer's Dream | Calgary Child Photographer11.11.10

Share/Save/Bookmark
I was giddy as we led up to this shoot…mom was looking for something different from what we had done in the past. It is music to a photographer’s ears to try something different. The location was one that I have been wanting to try since I drove past it on the way to another shoot this year. I have had the opportunity to watch this family grow over the years. They are such a pleasant family to shoot. Relaxed, loving…not to mention gorgeous;) This is the first time we have shot outside and it is so fun with boys of this age. They love to explore and run and play. Mom even brought an antique train that was their grandfathers…COOL! S, thank you for trusting me to capture these moments for you and for the creative freedom;)

This is from the series after the picture that I posted a couple of days ago of this little mama’s boy. I loved how he was still kissing mom;)Calgary Child Photographer14Calgary Child Photographer13Calgary Child Photographer12Calgary Child Photographer11Calgary Child Photographer10Calgary Child Photographer9
The little guy is daddy’s boy and was jealous of mom having pictures with him. I love the look on mom’s face in this one…seriously there is nothing cuter than to watch your husband interact with their children.Calgary Child Photographer8Calgary Child Photographer7Calgary Child Photographer6Calgary Child Photographer5Calgary Child Photographer4Calgary Child Photographer3Calgary Child Photographer2Calgary Child Photographer1Calgary Child Photographer

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.
