As a Calgary photographer I made a pact with myself to take a photo a week for 52 weeks. This as a personal goal of mine, and I actually have done something similar back in 2014 but it was a click a day for 365 days. That was sheer insanity and exhausting so instead of the pressure of a photo a day a photo a week seemed much more manageable. April is my birthday month so I am a little biased about how much I love this month. As a kid, Im sure like most, I use to count down the days to my birthday. We had a tradition in… Keep Reading
I made a resolution at the beginning of January to take a click a week for an entire year. So far I haven’t missed a week of snapping but I have been seriously falling behind on blogging my clicks. So lets rewind a bit and head back into March were I was spending a lot of time out in the Rocky Mountains being a Canmore Photographer. Every time I make the drive out to Canmore for a session I forget how amazing the Rocky Mountains are. As the highway weaves in-between the mountain valleys and the steep jagged peak rise up on either side of you I remember why I… Keep Reading
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
