I love taking photos of Zie & Coop. It’s fun to see them grow, and watch how they react to the camera.  They’re getting more used to my antics and really enjoying the camera. This year was a nice change, not having to fight so much with the weather. It also seems to be the […]

My oldest child was married this year, just 6 months after her sister.  It has been a whirlwind year for me with an overwhelming amount of activity and emotion. As usual, we started with engagement photos.  Both Lucas and Kristina are quite academic, so it seems fitting that they wanted to do their photos at […]

The wedding just by itself is always amazing, but what we had in store for us that afternoon was inspiring. We had some beautiful blue sky in the Southwest, and as got going, we jumped into action mode, racing to beat a thunderstorm heading our way. We shot right up to the end and ran […]

Gary’s girls came to visit Calgary again, so we needed to get together, especially with the new addition of Gary Jr.  One of my favourite spots is at Pearce Estate Park, where we photographed Ashley and Michael. The timing was perfect, as we took these just a few days before the epic Calgary flood that […]

I hadn’t been to Radium in a while. The last time was during the Golden Triangle cycling trip with the Elbow Valley Cycle Club back in the spring of 2000.  This year, we spent a week with our friends Kevin and Marion mostly just relaxing.   Kevin and I went on a couple of hikes […]

Fall mornings at Pierce Estate Park are incredible.  It’s even better when you include an amazing couple preparing to be married this summer.  Probably the hardest part of the morning was the incredible variety of scenery. We also wandered down to the river, being carefully observed by a heron. Mornings aren’t a popular time, so […]

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 […]

It was William’s first hunt. William’s cousin gave him his old compound bow, and he’s been practising all year with it. He got his hunting license and our friend Kevin took us with him to try to bag a couple of deer. It’s difficult at best, and we didn’t get anything with the bows, but […]
