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
Week 36 of my a click a day photography series is the first week of september. Batter late then never right!?! We spent the week lounging on the beaches of Costa Rica and soaking in all the warmth we could. We found out when we were there that it was snowing like crazy back in Calgary! YUCK! We had such an incredible time surfing, eating local food, and visiting/supporting the local animal rescue shelters! I even got to hold a baby howler monkey! I was in my heaven! Holiday Bliss!
My husband and I were still on our 2 week camping adventure and it has been absolutely amazing up to this point! One of my favourite moments of the week was going to a drive in movie! As a kid I remember going to a drive in theatre and loving it! The small town of Enderby, BC has a drive in theatre and I remember driving past it growing up and always wanting to stop so this time we actually did! It was the perfect summers evening! If you ever get a chance to explore the Okanagan in BC it is truly breath taking with its warm mountain lakes, sprawling… Keep Reading
Week 29 was full of sun, sand, weddings, and the start of a 2 week much needed vacation! Both my hubby and myself worked long hours leading up to the start of our BC vacation so we could just relax when we were gone. Between my man finishing a contract to build 4 sets of stairs and myself shooting a weddings, cake smashes, maternity sessions, engagement sessions and newborn sessions we haven’t had a lot of down time. We could not have been happier to turn off our cell phones for the first couple days and disappear into lake country with friends! 🙂 It is so nice to just unplug!… Keep Reading
This was such a fun week! Summer is in full swing, so we invited all our friends and family over for our annual kick of to summer outdoor movie night! There is just something so amazing about sitting underneath the stars, cuddled up with you loved one watching a movie. So fun. I also had the incredible opportunity to shoot am engagement session during Calgary’s Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth, The Calgary Stampede. Now if you have never heard of the Calgary Stampede it is a country fair on steroids! There is a rodeo that happens for the full 10 days with winnings of up to $100,000 for the winners…. Keep Reading
Week 25 was such a fun one! I shot my second wedding of the season out in the beautiful town of Banff. Its hard to believe that this big beautiful Rocky Mountains are right in our backyard. We are so blessed living in Calgary, I think most of us take it for granted. The other highlight of the week was meeting my brand new baby niece, Julie Rose and shooting her newborn session! I seriously have the cutest and most adorable nieces & nephews! Summer is also in full swing and we get such a short summer I am trying to take full advantage of every second of the warm… Keep Reading
Week 21 was an interesting one! My hubby and I have been on the look out for a new travel trailer for this summer’s holidays. We ended up finding one at an auction site, the only kicker was that it wasn’t in our town, it was in a completely different province and 10 driving time away. Well, we placed a bid and won it! We are now the proud owners of a Mallard travel trailer! Then the plan to go and pick it up began. We packed out bags for the 10hr trip to Vancouver and the 10hr drive back home and the plan was to do the whole trip… Keep Reading
