Baby Legs

Ok, these things are the cutest, coolest things for your little one.
Kind of like awesome baby legwarmers. I could be drawn to them because I am of a generation where at one time legwarmers were the height of fashion.

Check them out at Elephant Shoe, where they have tons of other funky items for children.

Lens Cap Thief

So this little man loved the camera. Loved it so much he snuck off with my lens cap. And put it . . .
Well, let's just say he put it somewhere I NEVER would have looked! :)

Still plugging away

I'm still trying to work on the new website in between client sessions.
I should get some time now that the holiday rush is dying down.
Back to babies and bellies!

Smiley Boy

This little man was all grins while I was there! He has the most gorgeous blue eyes, and looks so much like his mom. This session was a blast, I loved how open this family was. I think we took pictures in every room in their house, which was awesome!

I'm really excited to be unveiling a new website soon. It's still at, but with a totally new design, new photos, new blog, new everything! Keep checking here for updates on how it's coming!

New birth announcements!
I have tons and tons of new custom birth announcements available now. Here's one of the examples, more to come soon!

A girl! A girl!
Who knew the only thing I needed to do was make her myself? Haha!
Charlotte Jane was born October 6th, at 3:41am, weighing 8lbs and measuring 21.5" long.

Boy, oh, boy!
Yep, another boy baby!
This little guy cracked me up with the cutest facial expressions.
I had a wonderful time at this session, it was a really fun way to spend an afternoon!

*All holiday sessions are now booked. Thank you so much for your interest! I am still booking limited sessions for November and December, but keep in mind that your portraits will not be ready in time for the holidays. Thanks!

Only 2 holiday sessions left! I'm taking a small break away from maternity leave at the beginning of November to do special holiday sessions, so you can get your holiday portraits and cards. I have a great array of custom cards this year that I'm really excited about. Here's an example of one that I particularily like.
Available sessions are 1:00pm on both November 11th and 12th. These have filled up fast, so book now!

I just started proofing this session, but I love this picture. I love her nails, I love her belly, I love her outfit, I love that she can still wear her rings, lol.
This is the belly picture I wish I had of myself.
Oh nuts. I just realized I could have pretended it was me.
No baby yet, for those of you asking. I'm starting to wonder if this is an "if" not "when" kind of situation. In the meantime, it's fun proofing a maternity session if only to know I'm not the only pregnant woman left in the world!

    Was it just two weeks ago when being bareoot and swinging was the most we had to do?
    Where did summer go?

    Travis is Calgary's Child! His first cover, and mine too. This little guy is a total sweetheart, how many 3 year olds do you know that say ma'am and sir? I'm proud to have taken a photo of such a cute little guy that ended up being on the cover of a magazine.
    The September/October issue of Calgary's Child magazine is available at a number of places, including Toys R Us, City of Calgary pools, and Sobey's, if you'd like to check it out. It's a great resource if you've got kids.

    Ahhhh, another from the same session. I couldn't resist this one for some reason!

    Lake Bonavista is a beautiful place, especially at sunset. I had the pleasure of photographing a gorgeous mother/son combo at the lake a few weeks ago. It was a fun and relaxed session, with a truly lovely setting.

    Ahhhhhh! A little girl! They do exist!
    This little charmer was not only a happy baby, but she's gorgeous too!
    No surprise there, her parents had the most polished style.
    Good genes and a gorgeous home, I can't ask for anything more than that!

    Wednesday, September 06, 2006

    Ahhh, technology. is down right now, so if you are trying to access your gallery or just look at the website, I'm doing what I can to get the site back up as soon as possible.
    Thanks for your understanding!

    Where are the girls?
    Out of all of my newborn sessions recently, not a single girl has been born!
    I'm assuming that means that my own surprise baby will end up being a girl.
    This little man here was happiest on his back in a laundry basket, I'll have to remember that tip when my new one arrives!

    Friday, August 18, 2006

    The parents of this newborn session were so fun to take photos of. They had a nice relaxed attitude, and really made things quite smooth. They mentioned how much the dad looked like the new little man, but I never noticed until I got to this picture!
    They are a gorgeous family, and I wish them all the best!

    FRESH FACES special ending soon! Book now!
    September 1st is the last day for this special, which includes NO session fee and 50 percent off print prices.
    Also another thing you may not know is that my maternity leave starts September 18th, 2006. If you are interested in getting fall family portraits done, your session must be before this date, or alternatively, you can book for November. As usual, I will do my best to accommodate newborns, just give me a call or send me an email.

    It's been a busy week, two new sessions and I'm still proofing my photos from Houston!
    I've also been researching new options for holiday cards and birth announcements, hopefully I can do a preview of some new cards this week.

    Here's a fun shot from my session today with an adorable girl and her Nana.
