Susie - Calgary Maternity Photographer

It was so fun to hang out with Susie and take maternity pics. Feels like just yesterday that we were up in Edmonton taking photos of her pregnant with her daughter Sadie. Now we're back in Calgary doing photos of #2 on the way. Can you believe she's 35 weeks? I think she looks awesome!

It was absolutely freezing, but we managed to get a few cute shots. I'm SO excited for her. They don't know what they're having, which I love. Hopefully before the baby comes we'll be able to get some photos with her hubby and daughter. Anyhoo, here are some of my favs.

Amelia is an amazing woman. Seriously superwoman. She has a little boy and twin 1 year old girls (and her hubby's in med school... YIKES). I don't know how she does it. She's beautiful and funny. I love reading her comments on facebook, they literally crack me up. And good choice on the zebra Amelia (you know I'm all for animal prints). Thanks for the great day!

Jenny is another beautiful friend of mine and talented photographer.  Here's her site (and on it are a few pics she took of me). She has a beautiful baby boy. She's training for a marathon and I'm so proud of her. Good luck with that Jenny! She was saying she had to buy the lightest shade of foundation at the MAC store... I'd LOVE to be the lightest shade if I could have beautiful, flawless skin like hers!
Thanks for the fun day and smokin' pictures Jenny!

This girl is incredibly beautiful, photogenic, insanely talented and all around amazing person. She's the mom of 2 sweet little boys and a beautiful new baby girl. We've had a lot of fun together over the years - road trips, trips to TO, book clubs, many photo shoots, girls' nights and many more good times. We've done a few photo shoots together and this location was one of my favorites. I wish we had more time because just before she had to go we found another spot that was awesome. Oh well, I'm sure we'll do more photos, right Maren?  Be sure to check out how talented she is... Just click HERE !

Oh Sarah! I love this girl! I seriously have the most beautiful friends. And I love that they let me photograph them :) Sarah has 2 adorable little girls (some pics of her and her daughter a few posts back). She's a very talented photographer. Click HERE to check out her site. Cool fact about Sarah - she won the Studio 414 contest  last January (the month before me.) She was actually the one who told me about it and encouraged me to enter!
 Sarah was working the camera and rockin' it out (and picked our wicked location). I can't get over how amazing her eyes are - they are the most incredible blue!

It's been so much fun getting to know Barb. She is a blast to be with, super talented and is insanely gorgeous and photogenic. She is the mom of two sweet little girls (who she makes the cutest clothes for!). Cool fact about Barb - she lived in France with her husband and daughter for 7 months just for the fun of it! She said it was an adventure they always wanted to do together, so they bought tickets, found a place and moved out! How cool would that be???
We've never done a photo shoot together before, but she totally rocked it out. No direction necessary which was awesome. Her outfit was perfect (I covet her jacket) and she looked amazing! Thanks for the great day Barb!

Jordana - Just for Fun

Jordana is soooo much fun and so beautiful! She is the mom of 2 adorable kids - a girl and a boy. She is always smiling and has the most infectious laugh. I can't think of a time we've been together where we're not laughing hysterically at some point. It's funny because she has the hardest time being serious so we spent a lot of the time just laughing, which made things much more fun.

Anyhow, here are a few for your viewing pleasure Jordana!

Photo Exchange

A few months ago I joined a photography group and it's been a great learning experience so far. This month we are doing a photo exchange. I came across it on MICHELLE KANE'S website and thought it'd be fun to give it a try within our group. I was paired with Laura Taylor and here are her images straight out of the camera (SOOC), and my edited version.


My Edit

She had some cute pics to choose from, so I did another one...


My Edit

This was a fun opportunity to try editing another style and for us as a photographer to see someone else's take on our photo. I'm hoping we can do this again!

Mom and Daughter mini session - Family Photographer

Sarah wanted just a few photos of her and her oldest daughter. The location was great, Sarah looked beautiful and Taylor adorable. Makes me want photos with my girls.

Cahoon Family

I was able to do another quick session with another great family while in Edmonton. You might remember Ashley and her family from the pictures of the family of 17. I can't believe how much her kids have grown since I last saw them.Especially Jaymeson. I guess that happens when you only see someone once every 6 months or so, but still. It never ceases to amaze me - kids grow up WAY too fast!
Here are a few from their session. They wanted to have photos in front of the Edmonton Temple as a little reminder of their years in Edmonton. They're moving my way in the next month or so :) Good luck with the move and I hope you enjoy a the little sneak peak of your family photos.

Low Family

I went up to Edmonton again this past weekend. Looks like I just can't get enough of the place. Actually, I'm just really missing some really amazing people that became my dear friends. So of course that means road trip!
While I was there I was able to do a really quick session with Kamry and her family. I finally got to meet her sweet little girl, Talia (only 5 months later!). She's adorable and totally reminds me of my kids - string bean. This little one is loooong and oh so skinny. Seriously love her!
I have to say I LOVE her tongue hanging out in some of the pictures. Kamry even said it showed the true Talia. Love it! Hope you enjoy them Kamry :)

Ella Belle - Calgary Kids Photographer

It was my little Ella's turn for pictures. She is such a great little girl and full of sass and spunk. I have to say I'm surprised I managed to get some photos without her sticking out her tongue or crossing her eyes. It's her favorite thing to do right now, but doesn't make for the nicest picture. All in all I do think we got some pretty cute ones. Now to decide which of Ella's and which of Liv's to enlarge for their room... Thoughts?
