Redlands born and raised08.20.14

I was excited to hear that this client was born and raised in Redlands.  Most of the people that I have met have come here for the same reason that my family has.   Redlands is full of history (that I am slowly learning about) and it was really neat to incorporate some of the awesome landmarks into this family shoot.  One of my favourite gems in this community is the Redlands Bowl, “America’s oldest continuously running summer music festival at which no admission is charged!”.  It has been running for 91 years and it truly an amazing opportunity to for everyone to enjoy many different genre of music and theatre – the talent that I have had the opportunity to see there has been outstanding!

We worked through this session pretty quick as it was end of day, hot and a certain 3 year old was very focussed on the ice cream.  I pushed them a bit as I was in sensory overload with adorable clients, amazing scenery and gorgeous light…so I am pretty sure that mom and dad will have walked away wondering what we could have possibly got.  I wanted to be sure to ease your mind so wanted to get a sneak peek out pretty quick.  N family, thank you so much for choosing me to capture your adorable family.  I had a blast and hope you did too!

A perfect balance07.02.14

I strive during every session to get a combination of “perfect” shots and fun shots.  And when I say perfect, this is often still posed but real.  My preference (and the preference of most of my clients) is fun shots.  I do think that it is important to have both though…even if that posed shot is more for the grandparents or to look back and really know what everyone looked like at this time in their lives.  Funny enough though, so many of the grandparents are starting to choose more of the personality/moment shots.:)  This session had a perfect balance of both of these types of shots…but we will start with one of my favourites:).  D Family it was so nice to meet you and work with your sweet little boys!  More soon!

2013 review and website update01.13.14

I love going back through the past year and reviewing images.  2013 was a great year for Tot Shots and know that 2014 will be even better!  It is such a pleasure to see each family’s uniqueness highlighted – I love that!  I have gone through and updated my website with some of my favourites images from last year – which is a bit of a daunting task as I tend to overshoot:).  I still have to go through my personal pictures…still have not put together my annual books for my in-laws.  Will have some of my personal favourites here soon!  Here are a bunch of images and please check out more favourites on my portfolios on my website.  Looking forward to capturing more of your memories this year!

Merry Christmas!!!12.24.13

I have not had a chance to formally introduce our new family member but wanted to make sure we got a little Christmas greeting out!  This is our new puppy, Jackson (Jax for short) just a couple of days ago at 14 weeks old.  As if it was not hard enough to get two of them in a picture, it was even more of a challenge to get all three…with combed hair:)  Oh well, they are all together and we are loving having a dog back in our lives!  I will post more of the images of the shenanigans that have been taking place since he arrived 6 weeks ago but for now, we would like to wish you a very merry Christmas and holiday season!  We wish you health, happiness and joy!
