Celebrating The Last Year of High School

Here’s a throwback from a few years ago of a High School Seniors session, taken for a family friend. Lindsay had just finished High School, and these portraits were taken in the late summer, just before she embarked on her new life-College adventures, living away from home for the first time, and the thrill of… Read more »

Black Diamond Engagement Session

Here’s a engagement session throwback from a few years ago, which I absolutely love, and have to share! I met Mila at an Art Show in Turner Valley one August, where she purchased a few greeting cards from me. We started chatting, and we got along instantly. This was easy to do, because Mila is… Read more »

Welcome to the World! We’re So Glad You’re Here!

It was such an honour to capture these precious Newborn Portraits for this family at their home in Millarville, located southwest of Calgary. Aside from my own children, this was my first time photographing a Newborn only a few days old. Typically, my previous clients have waited for a month or more to have their… Read more »

Frogs and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails

Here’s a little throwback from last summer, at about this time, of my two boys. We had recently watched “Dennis the Menace” ( the 1993 Movie starring Mason Gamble, and Walter Mattheu), and I loved how Dennis’s wagon was filled with all of his “little boy” stuff. I don’t usually go overboard on props, but… Read more »

Hike at Brown-Lowery Park

Yesterday the boys and I needed a summer outing. Inspired by the Facebook page “Taking a Hike with Your Children” (I still need to buy the book), I’ve decided to set a goal of one hike per week for the kids and I, for the rest of the summer. I thought we’d best start small,… Read more »

Family Reunion-Fun times, Great Memories Made

For the several weeks leading up to our family reunion, I had that Corb Lund song stuck in my head “Family Reunion, It’s gonna be a good one”. Well, it definitely was! Some families have fairly frequent reunions. As for my Mother-in-law’s family, the Brodie’s, they’d never had one. It was more than time to… Read more »

Perspectives

Just a little photo share today, of my son David, blowing dandelion fuzz in the field at my home studio, near Millarville. Although we as adults have been geared to hate dandelions, the sunny yellow flowers, and now the puffy magical seeds are irresistible for kids. My kids have been picking me dandelion bouquets for… Read more »

Heritage Park-Fun Summer Outings

Friday was the first glorious day of summer we’d had in quite awhile. The first warm, sunny day after a long week of rain and downpours. And we were super excited to enjoy our outing in the sun. The fabulous moms and kids of Millarville Playgroup met at Heritage Park, in Calgary for our year… Read more »

Grad Portraits in the Foothills-It’s Not too Late to Book a Truly Memorable Session

As I was browsing the internet last night, I was struck by how when it comes to Grad photos, and Prom photos, there is a surprising lack of professional quality Grad photos out there. On PromGirl’s Facebook page for example, nearly all of the photos their customers shared, were snapshots. I find this such a… Read more »
