I was amazed at how I would feel during the wedding of my daughter.  There’s a mix of excitement and feeling reluctant to let go.  I lost myself in taking their photos.  We spent 3 hours wandering the downtown core for their engagement. I loved the variety we found in a relatively small area. Then […]

Gary, Heidi, and their family are so much fun. We went to Tom Campbell Hill. It’s one of my favourite spots, since it overlooks downtown Calgary. We had a perfect day to relax and have a great time.  They even got the western duds out for an authentic cowtown experience.

Mackenzie and Cooper are so fun to photograph. This is their second year that we’ve done a composite of them. I think now that Coop has figured out just how fun it is – especially when they get to use the colourful umbrellas. The day was just hanging on to the edge of being really […]

I love combining portraits with nature.  The Guidi family were playful and engaging as we worked some magic with a hot summer day.  As it happens sometimes, the tall grass tends to hide a few thistles.  We managed to get creative with some careful manoeuvring. When working around a baby’s schedule you don’t get as much […]

Heidi and Gary have added a new member to their family. The adorable Haley was a treat to photograph. She was very patient with us as she went through a few costume changes and had to endure the endless flashes. As you can see, Haley has some great parents that are more than excited that […]

I photographed Bella and her family last year. She’s still a bit shy to start, but it didn’t take her long to warm up to the camera.  I mostly gave her some distance and again encouraged her to play.  Being a little older now, she responds more to direction. Glenmore Park on the North side […]

It’s always fun to photograph Leon and Louise’s family.  They were celebrating the American Thanksgiving, so they had everyone together, which is difficult to do.  They have a nice park behind their home, so the original plan was to do the portraits there. However, just a week before our scheduled sitting, we had our first snowfall […]

This morning the campground looked nicer than I thought. The lake seemed nice. There were people that arrived early so they could go boating. John is taking pictures at a lookout after we climbed out of the valley from the campground. Gasoline at the Indian Village at the continental divide. – Victoria 12:26pm Left Gallup. […]

Photographing Bella was an amazing amount of fun.  She’s a very dynamic child with a lot of personality. We made it easy for her by letting her play in the grass and explore. The experience of freedom for her made it easy for her to ignore the camera and just be herself. When she started […]
