Family Photos – Come Back Summer

I thought I would post some more family photos, from one of my summer sessions. In hopes that by putting the request out there, the snow will go away and the warmth will come back for at least a few more weeks.

I have had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful family before. They are such a lot of fun. R family, it was so nice to catch up. I hope you are settling into your new school routine with ease. Also, Happy Birthday to your sweet girl.

Fall Mini Sessions

Fall Mini Sessions

FINALLY! I know, I promised to release the information on my fall mini sessions ages ago, but summer was really busy, and time just slipped away. Previous clients who requested to be on the wait list, and those who have signed up for the newsletter, have already had the opportunity to pre-book their sessions, leaving on a handful left available.

As of this moment, I only have:

1/9 spots left on Saturday, September 20th.

1/9 spots left on Saturday, October 4th.

0/8 spots left on Sunday, October 5th.

Remaining session will be booked on a first come basis, and here is how you do it.

Email your preferred date AND the package you would like to reserve to :

Depending on the time required for your session, I will be able to let you know what session time(s) I can offer you.

This is a great opportunity to get some updated family images and take care of a few Christmas gifts at the same time. So, if you are thinking about booking, don’t delay! Every year these sessions book up very quickly.

In Home Newborn Session

In Home Newborn Session


How sweet is this family? I love having in home newborn sessions. I like how casual and personal they are. This gorgeous baby girl is so photogenic (its pretty obvious where she gets it from). I had such a hard time choosing which images to blog. I want to thank her mom and dad for inviting me into their home, to capture this special time in their lives.

When having an in home newborn session, I offer two options. 1) Studio Style. I will bring all the equipment necessary to set up a studio in your home. Your images will look like they were taken in the studio, but you have the added convenience of not having to leave your home. Minimum 40 images in your online gallery to choose from.
2) Lifestyle. This session still takes place in your home, but instead of a studio set up we will use your home as the backdrop and use all natural light. These sessions are more casual and take on more of a “storytelling” feel. Minimum 40 images in your online gallery to choose from.

If you are interested in booking a newborn session, in your home or in studio, you can find all the information you need on my main website. Also, feel free to send any questions via the contact section, or call 403 966 7917. I do typically book up 6-8 weeks in advance, but always try to do my best to squeeze in any newborns 2 weeks and younger. If I cannot fit you in, I will happily provide a list of qualified professional photographers in the area, who may be able to help you out.

Outdoor Family Photos

Outdoor Family Photos

Its almost that time of year again. Kids go back to school next week, and before we know it, the leaves will have all turned and the snow will arrive. If you would like to book outdoor family photos, while we still have some green, be sure to get in touch as soon as possible.

I have photographed this family quite often over the last few years. We have done a mix of studio and outdoor sessions, and I have loved every session we have had together. Its been awesome to watch these girls grow. Its been a pleasure to get to know mom and dad more each time. They are not just clients anymore, I consider them to be friends.

Fun Family

Fun Family

Here is a peek into a session with a really sweet and fun family.

Am I the only one who is feeling like summer is coming to a end, far too quickly? I so enjoy my outdoor shooting season, and try to take advantage of it as much as possible. I am so excited about how many of my clients decided to do a session during the summer months this year. Its been, by far, the busiest outdoor summer season I have ever had.

I strive to really make sure all my sessions are a great experience for my clients. We  always have a lot of fun. While I do gently guide my clients to a degree, its often the unexpected images we all love the most. The captures that happen between the moments, they think I am going for. These little moments when they let down their guard, and relax. Show me who they are, individually and as a parent/child or family unit.

Thank you for another fun session W family. I hope you treasure these moments we captured together. I hope that many years down the road, you will look back at them and smile. I hope these two gorgeous boys of yours, look at these images and see just how much they are adored. xox

I adore this image. It was taken right at the end of our session together. We played very hard during this session, and I love how his disheveled shirt and skewed bow tie show just how hard we played. That paired with his nonchalant pose, to me, makes a perfect portrait of a little boy.
