Jody & Dean | Calgary Engagement Photographer

This afternoon I had the pleasure of meeting with Jody & Dean for a fun outdoor engagement session… here’s your first look at some of their photos! The one on the left looks like it was taken in the autumn instead of spring to me, since some of the trees still have berries(?) on them. Spring hasn’t quite sprung in …

Baby Leighton | Calgary Family Photographer

What a great day it was in Calgary today… windy, but the sun was so bright and we had wonderful, fluffy clouds floating across the sky. Yesterday was the first day of spring, which is my favourite season. Although I say that about fall when it comes around too, it’s kind of a toss-up between the two, for which I …

Baby Kaleb – Calgary Family Photographer

Yesterday I did a fun family session, which was with mom, dad, and three-month-old Kaleb. The Calgary weather didn’t cooperate so we didn’t get a chance to get everyone outside, unfortunately. At least there was lots of lovely bright morning light inside where it was warm. Here are a few, and there are even more on the Facebook page. He’s …

Why Engagement Photos Are Important

My base wedding package always includes engagement photos — there’s no discount for skipping an engagement session. Many couples mention that they don’t know if they really want or need engagement photos, especially if they’ve been engaged for a while. On the other hand, I also speak with some couples who have specific purposes in mind for the photos from …

Heather & Greg Engagement – Calgary Photography

On Sunday afternoon I did a session downtown with Heather & Greg, whose wedding I’ll be shooting next year. It wasn’t too cold, and surprisingly busy down there! Usually downtown = ghost town on weekends. I had a really hard time choosing a few for this “sneak peek”, but finally managed to narrow it down. I really enjoyed shooting these …

Laura & Kyle Family Portrait Session

This was my last portrait session of the year (well, almost, we’re sneaking one engagement session in later this month!). It’s a challenge in Calgary because once the frost hits, all of the plants die and everything turns the same greyish, brownish, non-colour. The grass dies, the leaves shrivel on the trees, and it only gets dustier and more grey …

Diane & Shawn’s Family

Over the last several months, I have been privileged to do three separate shoots for the same family: Diane’s maternity shots, newborn photos of Poet, and last weekend, a family session with the entire group. It was a unique opportunity to really have everyone get very comfortable with me, and to get used to seeing my camera clicking away. I …

Heather & Bryan – Engagement

This past weekend here in Calgary was optimal for photos — fall leaves, and warm weather with beautiful sunshine. I had a number of photo sessions and was extremely glad the weather cooperated. During one shoot at Confederation Park, I counted at least six wedding parties there at the same time, each with their photographers in tow. Seriously, the place …
