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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Sometimes friends just have to do stuff together. My daughters have a great pair of friends that live just across the street from us. They are all just awesome girls.

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 […]
