Seeing as we live in Canada and it doesn’t look like the snow is going to me melting anytime soon I thought it would be good to chat a bit about tips to survive your winter photo shoot. Lets be serious winter is 75% of what our weather is here in Alberta so chances are you will have a winter session at some point. Winter is also a stunning time for photos if you can brave the cold. The sparkle of falling snow in the sun can look like fairy dust and there is something very magical about that. So lets embrace the snow! Here are 5 tips to survive… Keep Reading
This past weekend I had the incredible honor of photographing one of my favorite families again but under a little bit of a different circumstance. The Giborski Family has sponsored a bench down in Fishcreek Park in honor of their Father, and Husband Alan’s passing 10 years ago. They wanted to have photos down at their bench with all of the family as a memento to him and his memory. I loved this idea for I was 100% on board when it was suggested to me. It was so special to be involved in their Calgary Fishcreek Park extended family photos. Kathy even brought his special guitar to the session… Keep Reading
On Boxing day I met the very fun Orsted family for their Priddis Greens Golf Course family photography session. We had just got a huge amount of fresh snow so all the trees and ground were sparkling with white fresh powder. It was really stunning!! They started off their session stinging Christmas lights onto a small Christmas tree just outside their house. It was so fun to capture these holiday memories for them. Then we snuck out to a more open area where the beautiful golden sun was spoiling us with some amazing warmth and light! Seriously though, these guys were so photogenic it made my job so easy!

The Christmas season is the perfect time to get together for an extended family session. Family that might live out of town in back in town and everyone is all back together for the holidays. This is exactly why the Adamson family planned their extended family session during this time. It was so fun to meet all 13 of them and capture these memories for them. It also doesn’t hurt that they are all super warm and welcoming but also super photogenic! One of the other reasons I love extended family sessions is because I get to capture photos that most of the time families or couples haven’t had for… Keep Reading
During the winter in Calgary it is hard to find days where it isn’t freezing cold outside where you can actually stay outside long enough to do a full hour long session. So I have started doing a lot more Calgary at home maternity photography sessions for clients. I am kinda in love with them! I love using the spaces in their home where they are most comfortable and having them just interact as a family. So whether that is having tickle fights on the couch or as simple as them sitting and reading a book together those moments are special, completely candid and as beautiful as any posed session….

When Christine and I started chatting about what they were wanting for their family session this year she mentioned that they wanted to have an at home Calgary family session and then outside in a green space by their home. I loved this idea and was immediately on board. There is something so fun about photographing a family in the comfort of their own home. They always seem more relaxed and themselves. They also had a black and white photo that they wanted to try to replicate from when Ella was just a baby at her newborn session. So fun! Thanks for letting me capture some of your family memories!… Keep Reading
I met the very adorable Roberts family on Friday for their Fishcreek Park family photography session. We have been having such a beautifully mild winter season, but this also means there isn’t a lot of snow on the ground anymore in Calgary. We did manage to find some snow for their wintery session and we were also blessed with an insanely beautiful sunset too! Both Roberts girls are so crazy cute and the perfect little models for the whole session! I had such a blast with this family and could not have had a better session with them! Thanks for all the laughs Roberts Family!!
