Personal pictures02.12.13

The beginning of each year always brings a bunch of clean up, reflection, changes for the new year,….  Although, I don’t know that there was as much of that early last year as I was just trying to get my bearings in a new country.  So this year as I was going through hard drive clean up, I have found pictures from my brother’s wedding that I did not even process.  It was October…the middle of busy season and a couple of months from moving countries.  So they have sat there for over a year and a half…fortunately I was not shooting their wedding just my children as the ring bearer and flower girl.  I did not even pull my camera out much as sometimes there are times to just enjoy.  Here are the few that I did get that evening though.  I really like them as they capture for me parts of the day:)

Assignment – January | Calgary Family Photographer02.05.13

I have decided to put myself on assignment. And well, I tried it for a year, so I know I can do it:) 2012 gave me the time to focus back on my family more and to capture them even more than normal. And I did. I also tried to look at everything from a different perspective. I will be doing this even more this year. I will be shooting more and will then share favourites at the end of the month. I will be testing myself to look at life from different perspectives and will also be telling our story as I go. Many of these images will then be what I use to put together my year end book…and I won’t have to spend as much time as I did this past year going through the reams of images:).

Here is a bit of January:

Blurb | Calgary Family Photographer01.10.13

For the past couple of years I have been putting together books as gifts for family.  I thought that I would share this past year’s book for my mother in law as I think that it is a great DIY product and find Blurb’s book application to be easy to use.

I am, personally, not very good at printing individual pictures for family as I shoot a bit too much:)  And for myself, I tend to print art so that my family can constantly enjoy the pictures (the kids love looking at themselves:).  However, my MIL does not want that though as she shares time between the US and Canada and wants something she can carry in her purse.   So I find this to be an awesome way for her to show off part of her family and to document the year for her.

I print a few copies of the book so that my children can look through them as well.  However, I will be putting together my own year in review book over the next month that has a few more of the shots that resinate with me (and in a larger size book – this one is a 7×7).  I will try to remember to share that when it is complete to give you ideas for your own pictures.

I am also in the process of testing a couple of companies for higher end books to offer this service to my clients.  I will have samples of each of these in the studio soon.

Here are a few of the pages for the book I created.

A rare occasion:)| Calgary Family Photographer01.10.13

Anyone who knows me, knows I am petrified of getting in front of the camera.  I think that this is fairly typical of most photographers…and really of a lot of people:).  Despite these fears, I do recognize the importance of getting in the pictures so I will force a picture with the kids and I every so often.  I did try to book a family session this year but due to our travel schedules, we were not able to make it work.  I will be getting on this earlier this year.  I did have my husband take a quick picture prior to Christmas…we did not get dressed up or go anywhere fancy but I have a picture and more importantly my children have a picture.  They love seeing themselves with me and they don’t see all of the little things I see:).  This year, I will leave it to the professional!!

Happy New Year!! | Calgary Family Photographer01.06.13

I hope that everyone had a fantastic Christmas and New Year’s.  We did…a little different than previous years but fantastic!!

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of my clients for an amazing 2012.  It was an incredible year for my family and my business.  It was filled with change, adventure and growth.  I am so fortunate to do what I do and to continue to do what I LOVE.  Thank you for trusting me with documenting your family moments and filling your home with memories!  I also have to thank Cristina and Jess for making the past year so amazing.

I am so looking forward to 2013 and all of the new work and adventures that I have planned in Calgary and southern California.  I will be sharing some of the favourites from the year and art from your homes over the next little while.  First I  wanted to let you know about the dates that I have available over the next few months.

I currently have the following dates that I will be in Calgary:

- January 17-20 – booked

- February 22-24 – availability remaining

- March 15-17 – availability remaining
