Comments for the Cure! – Calgary Children Photographer08.10.09

As I roll out my new blog and website I would like to kick it off by encouraging comments (it is now really easy to do with this new blog).  I have chosen comments so that I can receive feedback on my work and so I don’t feel like I am talking to myself;).    So for every comment that I receive this week, I will donate $1 for the CIBC Run for the Cure that I will be participating in on October 4th.  If you follow my blog, you know that my mum passed away from Breast Cancer over 2 years ago.  This year has been the first year that I have been able to muster up enough strength to attempt to do this 5km run in October.  I am not a runner however I have been running three times a week since April in an attempt to get myself ready physically for this run.  I set up a Tot Shots team ( and so if you need something to do on October 4th, I encourage you to come out and join me.  I will be sending a note out this week to all of my friends and family to get them to join or support.  Please note that you do not need to run, there is also an option of a 1km walk.  I don’t need to mention what a great cause this is as so many of us have been affected by this disease in some way.

Information will also be going out this week on fall bookings, the last Tot Shots Social Series event of the year and more sneak peeks.  I apologize that I got behind due to website/blog overhaul that needed to take place unexpectedly.  If you are interested in a fall/Christmas booking  (and have not already spoken to me about it), please send a note through the contact form and I will add you to the email list.

Now, I think that you will still be able to see the old blog for a little while if you are interested…

I have to start my new blog with a picture of two of my mum’s favourite things!  I took this picture a few weeks ago to finally fill the wall above my desk in the studio with the perfect moment of my children.  This is now a 16×26 gallery-wrap canvas that I get to look at everyday and is very representative of both of my children!  It seems that I am still having issues with picture placement.  Hopefully I will figure this out this week as I post sneak peeks that have been promised.

  1. I am very proud of your efforts for Run for the Cure…and I am so proud to join you on the run!!

  2. I love how you can capture kids’ true personalities! Are you looking for more team members for Oct 4?

  3. What a great way to increase awareness for the Run for the Cure as well as for raising funds. Good for you! I like the look of the website!

  4. Hey Jody, Thanks for keeping up with the Cure Donations. I know that I will be happy to help support both you and Lynn this year in the run. Good Luck 🙂

    Jody – Lynn told me you were going to run this year. Thanks. Pat would be proud of you. We all miss her so much. She was a special person and touched us all.
