We took full advantage…|Calgary Family Photographer06.15.10

Share/Save/Bookmark
of the gorgeous weather we had this past weekend in Calgary.  It was beautiful and it was so nice to be out.  This is a client that you have seen a few times.  We did a couple of shots in the studio but then decided to move outside this time.  I am so glad that we did as this family has awesome energy and amazing love for each other – it was a great way to capture it. It was amazing how much the little one, in particular, had changed – the gorgeous blond curls! Mom even mentioned to me on the way back to the studio that she wished she had done a shoot in between this one and the last – life does get busy, doesn’t it? R and S it was so fun to get outside and play…and to take advantage of the gorgeous green grass that I knew was coming;)

The big 4-0 |Calgary Photographer06.10.10

My husband turns 40 next month. I probably would not typically blog about it and I definitely would not if I thought that it bothered him. But I know it doesn’t and since I tweeted about the engineer’s dream of a gift with “some assembly required”, I figured I would at least follow up with a picture. One day I will join the rest of the world and get an iPhone and be able to easily share on the fly (but being the practical girl I am, I will be waiting until the contract of my bb is complete;).

So the story behind the gift…we have never really been “gift” people. Probably goes along with the fact that we are both fairly practical but also minimalist. This is a little different though, when you hit a big milestone there feels like there is a bit of an expectation. So I have been soliciting his friends and golf buddies to see if there was a club that he needed. Well, it seems that there has been a “need” for them some time in the past as he has all of them. So I was at a bit of a loss…and mentioned it one day. He answers rather quickly with “there is the bike I have been looking at and it is on sale right now”. Sweet! Shopping done! So the friendly neighbourhood UPS guy arrives last Friday with the gift a month early and I, fortunately, had a GNO planned so that I did not have to be part of the assembly process;) So here is the new cruiser…not the motorized kind that he would really like but the family friendly, get some exercise kind. Don’t ask me anything else about it because despite being shown the website and video and hearing about it for a week or so, I still can’t tell you anything about it or why he needed it?!? Happy Birthday Honey…I know you love it. I just may have to find a beanie helmet because the mountain biking one looks goofy – ah, Father’s Day!

There is no doubt that it will be well used as we are out biking as a family every opportunity we have…here is everyone else geared up. All I ever see is my son’s dust so thought that this was fitting.

Twin boys | Calgary Family Photographer06.08.10

I get the opportunity to update this family’s pictures each year and this year we decided to get outside for a little adventure. We headed off to one of the local wooded areas. It was a blast. It is neat to see the differences in the boys’ personalities. One of them a little more daring as he would step close to the edge of the river and the other one would stay a safe distance (he was also the one to look back and make sure that I was following). K and J, it was great to see you again! A few more to come;)

Gorgeous maternity | Calgary Maternity Photographer06.03.10

Share/Save/Bookmark
I love doing maternity photos!  I don’t know exactly why…there is, of course, the anticipation of new life, the parents’ excitement, the unknown (particularly with other little ones involved),…  I think that it is a mother’s pregnancy glow though that I love the most.  I know that many times it does not feel like a glow but exhaustion and the “glow” is actually the extra effort to carry an extra few pounds (40 in my case;)…particularly when you are running around after one, two or maybe a few little ones already.  But EVERY mother I have ever met has a glow and I LOVE that I get to actually capture it.  The funny thing about this session is that the mom said partway through that she forgot her lipstick.  So I said go put it on and she said no.  She totally did not need lipstick and I so glad she did not put it on.

Aren’t their daughters gorgeous?  I can’t wait to meet the new little one!

I have to say I laughed a bit at the one on the right…they are going to need some extra hands!

Rain, rain… | Calgary Children's Photographer06.01.10

I am not one to complain about the weather so I will stop there. The little one was peering out the window yesterday with her little pug nose squished against the window and singing away…because really nothing should be done without singing. She was not singing the aforementioned song but we have been cooped up a little and so it came to mind when I saw this one. I love that she sings ALL the time. That is if she is not talking…and I won’t lie…at times it all gets a little overwhelming. But then, would I want it any other way? No way!
