Calgary Family Portraits; Lindsay and Family 

We have been back in Calgary for a little while now, 10 days to be exact, and I am not sure where the time has gone. I bet you have been wondering what we have been up to! It has been great to see so many friends (still so many to see), getting some business organized, and even shoot some family portraits!

I have photographed Lindsay and her family before, and it is fun to see them again, and to see how much the children have grown during the year. This is one of the first photos we took, and one of the first photos I looked at when I opened the file. I was so excited I had to share it right away, now I have to go back to the file and see how many other great photos we have.

Lindsay – it won’t be long and I will have the proofs to you!

We were sitting having a glass of wine in the Plaza Mayor, here in Merida last night. It was full of kids playing, parents with strollers, and old people walking hand in hand.  Thought out the square there are about 4 or 5 Tapa bars where music was playing, and people were visiting. I decided a long exposure showing people moving about was a wonderful way of capturing the light, and the life of the square.

Photos are available through my gallery.

Winter is here, yet I am still working on family photos done earlier this year. Taken near the Ranche Restaurant in Fish Creek Park, the autumn colors and golden grasses don’t last long. There is a beautiful red building, that I think everyone uses as a backdrop for photos, but there is so many places to sit and pose families.

I want to thank Jen and her family for giving me the opportunity to spend this time with them, it was wonderful, the kids were so much fun.

 

Amrita; Maternity Photography

Mom to baby Miya that you met last week, I thought I would show you one of the lovely maternity photos taken just a couple of weeks before Miya’s birth. Maternity photography is best when kept simple, I love black and white photography for its simplicity.

I love newborn babies, okay, I love all babies…

And I have great admiration for professional baby photographers. My wonderful friends Brett and Amrita proud new parents allowed me an opportunity to take a few pictures of their beautiful baby girl.

I was over to visit Amrita, Brett and Miya on Monday and of course to take a few pictures. Miya was a sleep when I first arrived and Brett was holding her in his lap. She had just eaten and was dozing peacefully.  It was a wonderful afternoon and I can hardly wait to get through the photos that were taken.

Sugar and Spice and all things nice!

 This one was fun, but only take two attempts, little Addilyn tipped over the first time! On the plus side it won’t be long before she rolls over all by herself.  The big girls Skylar and Alexa were perfect, they remembered to watch me, not the baby, so I could get the shot.

Addilyn; following a family tradition!

Saskatchewan Rough Rider Fan – Addilyn

A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bank balance smaller, home happier, clothes dirty, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for – unknown. 

We first met Addilyn before Christmas, she is now about 5 months old, and has clearly made some major decisions about how she will live her life – afterall cheering for the Saskatchewan Rough Riders is usually a life long obsession.  Okay maybe, just probably, she had some family influence, I think it was Grandma Carolynne that bought the jersey, and the socks seem to be a big hit.

Carolynne brought the whole family by a while ago for photos, so we will have more photos during the week, they are almost ready.
