I can barely believe it! I completed my very first 365 photography project. When I first stared this resolution to take a click a day for 365 days I wasn’t sure if I would be able to complete it. But I did!!! I am so proud of myself and would challenge anyone that wants to improve their photography or even just to document your life or your kids lives to do this project. It is so rewarding to look back over the course of the year and see all the amazing photos I’ve captured. My plan is now put all theses photos together in a book so we have it… Keep Reading
Over the 51 week weekend my immediate family and I celebrated Christmas! Both myself and my hubby and my brother, sis-in-law and their family are out of town over Christmas day so we decoded to push our Christmas forwards by a couple days. There is seriously nothing better then watching my niece and nephews explore and discover Christmas. Watching the joy in their eyes seeing all the lights and gifts and being all together over this time is truly what makes this time of year so special! Hope your Christmas is overflowing with love, peace and joy! Merry Christmas from my family to yours!!!
This week we were gearing up for Christmas! Since both my hubby and I were going to be out of town for Christmas day this year we are planning to do Christmas with my family the weekend before. That means we had to be ready earlier then usual. I also received an amazing gift in the mail from my 2014 Santographer. If you are a photographer and aren’t a part of this amazing group of photographers you are missing out! It’s such a fun way to network and also send something special to a fellow photographer during the Christmas season. Huge shout out to Laura Winslow for running this group… Keep Reading
Christmas is literally right around the corner! With just a couple weeks left before all the holiday cheer starts, and the end of my 365 project happens, I am trying to saver the last part of 2014. The baking is just about done, the tree is up, the smell of christmas is fully in the air! This week our pooch also turned the big 14! Thats 98 in people years! Which completely blew our mind that our sweet, up beat Miss K is that old. Crazy!
This week has been crazy! I have been planning a styled shoot/workshop over the last little bit and this Sunday was finally the day! Of course it also had to be the coldest day Calgary had experienced this winter. Brrr. There is nothing quite like being outside shooting in -17 degrees for 4 hours. Seriously it was not for the faint of heart. The other amazing ladies that attend my very first workshop were so brave to be out there with me. Did I mention we had models just in a wedding dress and suit?!? Yup they were troopers and so amazing for posing for us. I wish I could… Keep Reading
Week 47 of 52 has come and gone! This week I started and finished yup FINISHED my Christmas shopping. This is new to me I have NEVER been that person that shopped in let alone finished before the end of November. I am usually the one that was there still shopping with all the men just days before Christmas Day. Then Im always rushing to Fedex gifts all over the place and paying an arm and a leg to get them there. This year gifts are bought, wrapped, and already off the our loved ones! I know I have even surprised myself on how efficient I have been the is… Keep Reading
Week 46 we were back to doing renovations on our house and have finally just about finished our family room! Yippee. It was important to us to have a beautiful living space for the Christmas season. We now spend more time then we ever have in our new space beautiful it is just so warm and inviting! My beautiful niece also got dedicated this past weekend so we got to spend some amazing family time playing and laughing with some of my favourite littles. 🙂 It was such a great week filled with warm drinks, warm hugs, and warm memories!
Week 45/52 I am finally starting to slow down and have a little more ME time, had more time to blog and catch up on my to do list. Also had more time to try some different photography techniques that I have been wanting to try out and learn. This week I have also decided to run my every first ever photography workshop. Eeeek! I am so crazy excited about stepping out of my comfort zone and teaching some amazing ladies. For the workshop I am also putting together a styled winter woodland shoot with some crazy talented Calgary vendors. I can’t wait to share more about this upcoming session but… Keep Reading
