Family Fall Pictures?!? | Calgary Family Photographer10.17.09

Share/Save/Bookmark
So our Calgary fall weather has been all over the place. Although the following session was suppose to have a backdrop of fall colours, we decided that the sub-zero temperatures was a bit chilly so we moved the session to the studio. It took the 2 year-old a little bit to warm up, however we ended up with some awesome shots (we always do…one of my favourite ages!).

I had to include big brother’s funny face picture…I always take a few of these…mostly because I love the huge smiles that you get after. Okay, I like the funny faces too…when my children do this, it ends up on Christmas cards. Anyway, what I found out when this little guy made this awesome face, it was Grandma that had taught him this one. How cool is that! J and S, it was a pleasure meeting you and I hope you enjoy your sneak peek! J, I hope your mom does too!Calgary Family Photographer 18

Family Fall Fun | Calgary Family Photographer10.13.09

Fall has been a bit short in Calgary this year with the weather being all over the place…thank goodness we decided to move this session up a week to make sure that we captured the fall colours. At the time my thinking was to avoid a big wind storm that would take all the leaves…little did I know we were going to end up with snow! Hopefully it will not last long and we can squeeze in a bit more fall.

This family is a ton of fun. I have had the opportunity to shoot them a few times. We had not done an outdoor session yet and I am glad that we had the chance this year. It was a great way to capture this active family and include their lab. Thank you for the bushwhacking adventure guys!Calgary Family Photographer 6Calgary Family Photographer 1Calgary Family Photographer 11

Gorgeous Newborns | Calgary Newborn Photographer10.08.09

I have had the most gorgeous newborns lately! Here is another new baby that I have the pleasure of taking pictures of last week. G and T, I apologize for the delaying in getting a sneak peek out to you.  I should have the rest up soon!

On that note…I am finally beginning to get back on top of things…okay, just as I gear up for a heavy couple of months. This year I cannot take all of the credit though. I decided to bring in an assistant this season to help me get through this very busy time and still continue to offer you exceptional service. There has been an increase in demand for sessions as well as for wall art. So when the opportunity arose a few weeks ago to hire this girl, I jumped at the chance. It has taken me a long time to get to this point of letting go a bit (I am sure this is a common woman thing) in addition to finding the perfect person. Jess will be helping me with some of the back office work, including album design (yes, this has been a new addition to my product line as well), Christmas cards and wall art mock ups. Jess has a degree in Photography from ACAD and thus far has been proving to be an awesome addition! I will get pictures of the new products and designs out soon.

Love the perspective over mom’s shoulder. We spend a lot of time looking at our little ones like this!

We did it! | Calgary Photographer10.05.09

Share/Save/Bookmark
I am so excited to say that “We did it!”.  Yesterday was the CIBC Run for the Cure that Team Tot Shots participated in.  It was amazing!  This is the first year that I was emotionally able to get involved with this event.  My cousin has participated in my mum’s honour for the past 7 years and I now fully understand why she wanted me to get involved.  I always thought that it would be super sad – in too much of a “public sadness kind of way”(in addition to the fact that I was not a runner and did not see myself being able to even get through that part).  It was an emotional day…it is difficult to see people running for their moms, daughters, aunts, sisters, friends, themselves…, but it also amazing to see how many people were there to support each other because of this common link.  I am so incredibly thankful for the support that I had in getting through this personal challenge.  I am so glad that my cousin allowed me to organize this year as it did give me something to work on and not focus on the sadness part (until all was said and done yesterday).

I also want to thank all of our team’s sponsors…together we raised almost $5700 (so far…a few donations are still rolling in) which I feel is pretty impressive!

Here are a few images from the day…the weather did not cooperate to allow us to get a very “creative” team picture.  I did run with my camera to attempt to capture some of “in the moment” pictures but it was brutally cold…so this is what I got.  You get the idea…depsite the candidness of my shots.  I then hosted the after party at the studio complete with these gorgeous cupcakes that one of my clients made!  If you ever need a cake maker please let me know and I can pass her details on…she is fabulous!

Baby Boom | Calgary Newborn Photographer09.30.09

Share/Save/Bookmark
Wow, is there a baby boom in Calgary? I have had a ton of newborn sessions lately! Here is another 9 day old newborn that I had the pleasure of working with last week! Mom is a labour and delivery nurse in Calgary so was COMPLETELY comfortable whipping the little guy in and out of poses! Dad was pretty comfortable too (although he does not work with babies – he does have a really cool job though). Q and C, it was an absolute pleasure working with you and I will have the rest of your gallery up ASAP.
