Planner | Calgary Family Photographer11.05.12

My husband is a planner…he is one of those people that can plan hair appointments for an entire year in advance.  I am not typically like this.  I like to call my hair stylist when my hair is getting unruly and get in either that week or the next.  Well, life has changed a bit, I have to book things in advance a lot more as I am only back in Calgary for a few days a month typically and so I have had to plan most of my trips and have sessions in place…which has made my clients have to be a bit more like this too.  I want to thank many of you that have booked me so far in advance to ensure that you get a session with me.  I appreciate your “plan-in-advanceness”.  I do also recognize that things change, hockey schedules come out and children get sick.  I have (and always will) leave time in my schedule for shuffle and reschedules.  There was some juggling during the 11 days I was in Calgary in September and I was left with two open spots for the second weekend.  I sent a note out to a bunch of clients that I thought might want a session (and are more like me…last minute) and booked up right away.  This is one of the families that jumped on a last minute spot.  I have shot them many times over the years and was so happy that I was going to be able to see them again this year.  Their children are getting so big.  I LOVED the way these two siblings got along…although there was a bit of pretending that they did not want a hug from the other, the way they interact and lean their heads into each other tells how close they really are:).   F family it was fantastic to see you and I am so glad that we were able to make this work!

Availability | Calgary Family Photography10.21.12

Wow, how are we only a couple of months away from Christmas?!?!  This year has flown!  I will be back in Calgary a few more times before the end of the year and thought that I would update everyone on what is remaining as far as sessions for the year.  I still have a few sessions available, as does Jess.  In addition, Jess will be shooting mini sessions in the studio.

I have the following dates and times for studio or location:

Saturday, October 27th late afternoon – I have had a client reschedule leaving this time open…I understand that it is last minute but know that sometimes works:)

– Friday, November 16th – morning

– Saturday, November 17th – morning

Sunday, November 18th – morning

– December 7th – a morning and an afternoon session

– December 9th – a morning session

Jess still has flexibility in her schedule as well as she is offering mini sessions in the studio this year.  These mini sessions are perfect if you just need a few shots for Christmas cards, gifts or you do not want to invest in a full session.  Please see the details and contact the studio if you are interested.

Blast from the past | Calgary Family Photographer09.06.12

If you follow my blog, you know I have gotten to work with these girls at least once a year since the year after I began.  I was shocked as to how mature they looked this time – even more so than other years as both had their front adult teeth completely in.  I had to look back into the archives to see some old pictures of how they had changed and found this one from 2007 (I believe was their second year with me) and matched it up with a similar looking shot from this year.  B and K, thank you for trusting me with the girls’ annual shoot.  I promise to have more from our session up soon…just had to post this though:)

Singing in the rain | Calgary Family Photographer08.24.12

I am so glad that this client got my message … I called them an hour before the session and asked them to bring rain gear.  We were planning a little studio and a little outdoor for this session so we could have just stayed inside.  But seriously, what 4 year old boy does not want to splash in puddles (okay and this 38 year old girl):).  And, of course, I did not have boots so I was right there splashing in flip flops:)…a smile like that is worth some wet feet!  Thanks S and R for trusting me with your family photos each year and partaking in my last minute ideas:).  Tons of fun!calgary family photographer2

A little over a year | Calgary Baby Photographer05.04.12

I thoroughly enjoy working with this family. Not only are the gorgeous and dressed to the nines but they are sweet and funny and we always have a great time. We were going to have an outfit change to do some casual shots at the end when Miss O, in true model form, said “No, done!” and walked out the door. It was hilarious. M family it was fantastic to see you as always and I can’t wait to see the rest of the family soon!
