Baby K Turns 1-Learning to Walk, Learning to Drive, and an Attempted Cake Smash

On Sunday we had Baby K’s 1 year portrait session, at his family’s home in Millarville. This was his final session in his year long Watch Me Grow series of portraits.  Our early morning session saw him full of smiles and good humour for a whole hour, with hardly a fuss. He’s becoming quite a… Read more »

Yvonne and Martin’s Wedding Celebration {Canmore, AB}

Joyous, hilarious, and true to life. Living each moment, feeling each emotion of the day deeply. That is how I would describe Yvonne and Martin’s Wedding celebrations this past Thursday. They are such a great couple, you can’t help but love them. I truly enjoyed capturing their special day, along with all their family and… Read more »

Hike at Curley Sands-Mesa Butte Provincial Park-Kananaskis Country

On Sunday, at Brodie’s suggestion, and because it was on our summer bucket list, our family went for a hike in K-country. We’ve lived here for eight years, and have not explored very many hiking trails, or the back country, literally out our backdoor, so it’s high time for us to start taking in some of… Read more »

Spectacular Fireworks at the Calgary Canada Day Celebrations

Last nights’ fireworks show at the Centre Street Bridge in Calgary was truly awesome. For us small town, born and raised people it was the best we’ve ever seen. For our kids, it was the first fireworks show they’d ever seen. An epic experience for them, that will be hard to match. Growing up, I… Read more »

Grad Portraits for the Lovely Grads of Holy Trinity Academy {Okotoks, AB}

Yesterday I had the privilege of capturing Grad Portraits for some of the lovely ladies graduating Holy Trinity Academy in Okotoks. These lovely girls braved the scorching heat to give me a few minutes of their time, on what was clearly a very exciting day. I’m so glad each of them was able to spare… Read more »

Epic Swarm Catch near Longview, AB

Last night was truly memorable. And although It wasn’t technically a swarm catch, it was definitely an experience. The actual swarm had happened a few days earlier, and had found a home in an old abandoned schoolhouse building. We believe it was the old Hartell Schoolhouse, located a few kilometres North of Longview. A local… Read more »

Bubbly Baby Fun near Millarville, AB

Yesterday was Baby K’s ten month portrait session in his year long series of Watch Me Grow portraits. I think it was one of his favourite sessions ever;) It’s been so much fun capturing portraits of Baby K, and it’s hard to believe he’s already ten months old. Time really does fly with little ones….

The Calgary Zoo Through a Child’s Eyes

Yesterday my son’s preschool class went for a field trip to the Calgary Zoo. It had been years since we’d went, the last time being in 2011, when David was just a baby. It’s always so awesome to see the kids so enthralled and excited about the animals. Our first stop was to see the… Read more »

An Afternoon with our Busy Bees

Yesterday was a lovely sunny day, and the first warm day after a spell of cold, rainy, and snowy weather, here in the Foothills. The first day the bees could fly, and forage in three days. And forage they did, on the ever emerging fields of dandelions, at our home near Millarville. I know to… Read more »

Easter Promises and Blessings

Today, on Easter Sunday, I was so blessed to be asked to attend, and capture images of Baby K’s Baptism at the beautiful, historic Christ Church Anglican Church, near Millarville. I’ve already shared so many wonderful moments with Baby K and his family, as I’ve been chronicling his first year with Watch Me Grow Portraits,… Read more »
