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!

Playing with light11.18.13

Have photographed this girl and the rest of her family more times than I can count…I believe since she was 3.  We did a little extra playing with light during their session a couple of weeks ago.  Love the results!  Will share more from the full family session soon.

Not all smiley | Calgary Family Photographer05.06.13

calgary family photographerWorking on this order today and love that this little guy’s mom chose this one.  Something about it I love:)  Actually love that she chose all of the unconventional shots from the shoot – they are always my favourites too – there is a story behind them.  Will share the canvas shots that she chose when they are in:).

Thank you! | Calgary/California Maternity Photographer02.21.13

I still feel like I need to say a huge thank you to this client for traveling so far to see me.  I wanted to get this post up as soon as possible as I know that she is excited to see them.  These two are so adorable together and you would never know that they were a little nervous to begin with.  In addition to my “normal” lenses, I also pulled out my lensbaby for this session.  I would not normally use a lensbaby for shots with more than one person as the area around the focal point gets a bit wonky.  However it seemed appropriate for a maternity as the focus is baby and I had some ideas I wanted to try.  I am really happy with the results:).  Thank you again L and D for trusting me and traveling to see me.  I can’t wait to meet the little one in Calgary soon!calgary, california maternity photographer

Wall art | Calgary Family Photographer02.15.13

With the fall and Christmas season being so busy for everyone, clients and I collectively push working on wall art to the new year.  I have a number of meetings scheduled over the next couple of weeks to work on a bunch of projects.  I have also been working on a few of my own walls to make my house feel like a home as well as I test new vendors and try new products.  I am always looking for something new:).  I thought that I would share images of my walls as well as clients to help give you ideas of what you can do with your images.

The following is a canvas (a product I use a lot).  This one is a 40×60 of one of my favourite images from 2012.  It was our first trip to the beach in California, I ADORE the water and the beach in particular, the grandness of the pier and littleness of my daughter, the freeness of her flying around the beach (both children loved that day:), the simplicity of the image,…  Looking at this from my kitchen makes me happy!  I had seen an oversized canvas of a surfer in a James Perse store and loved it and knew that was what I wanted (with my own spin).  I am a minimalist and typically decorate my home with large and few pieces – I like the style of an art gallery…simple and easy to clean:).

I felt a little bad putting such a big piece of one of my children but I do have a plan to even it out.  My son’s shot has not happened yet but my vision for it involves the water (which is too cold to get in right now) and will bring some colour to the wall and a new medium.  Can’t wait!  I also have some framed prints going in this week (this grouping will be different from my normal style so we will see how it goes).  I will post as soon as I get them back and hung.  I am also hoping to get a few up around my desk.  The blank wall is screaming for some attention…and it will make it much more pleasant to work in this space.  More soon!
