Leighton Centre Summer Art Camps {Millarville-Okotoks, AB}

Last summer I was asked to spend some time capturing the fun, creativity, and action at the Leighton Centre Children’s Summer Art Camps. In addition to working on this very enjoyable project, my own two sons were invited to spend a week at Art Camp. It was a creative, and wonderful way to spend a… Read more »

The River {Unscripted Documentary Child Photography}

Well, it’s not actually a river.  But the other day, as I walked down our driveway, the warm springlike weather had created a small river on our lane. The rivulets of water carved small channels as the water followed the destination chose for it by gravity, down the hill. The cheerful sound was musical and… Read more »

Making Memories-Family Camping Trip to Brazeau

Last week our family went on a camping trip. Without realizing it, 3 years had went by since we had been camping, two years since we had any kind of summer vacation as a family. It’s easy to be so busy with work, and life, and let time move by, without realizing that you haven’t… Read more »

Diaries from the Puppy Place

I haven’t blogged in a good long while, so it’s high time I shared some photos and stories of our recent escapades. We are raising eight puppies, and this new adventure has been the reason for my recent blogging hiatus. As I prepare this blog, the puppies have finally settled down for their nap, after… Read more »

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

He’s becoming quite a… 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 »
