Paula, Dean, Mackenzie and Kahlan

Sunday, October 18th, 2009

The winter weather finally cleared up (hopefully for more than a few days!) so my day was filled with a bunch of “autumn colors” photos… even though there aren’t many autumn colors out there after the trees had the snow shock hit them! (Luckily I can fake it a bit, hehe).

The first shoot of the day was with Paula and Dean, and their two cuties Mackenzie and Kahlan. These girls were adorable little models and excellent at posing – until we got distracted by all the crunchy leaves! I hope you all had fun playing in the leaves with me :)


The Chester Family

Sunday, June 28th, 2009

Yesterday I had the pleasure of shooting this fun family from Fort MacLeod down in Indian Battle Park. I had a fantastic time as the weather was gorgeous and they were so nice (and easy to make laugh!). They may not have believed me at the time that doing silly things like staring at each other with faces really close would look “magical,” but I’m glad they played along :)


Baby Eva

Sunday, June 14th, 2009

I finally got to meet little Eva! I am photographing her mom and dad’s wedding this July and over the last few months I have heard lots about her… and she is such a sweet baby! She was pretty patient with us even though it was so hot and modeling can be quite tiring. Eventually she let us know she was done, and totally zonked out for the last few photos :)

I will be seeing Chris, Alisa, and Eva again very soon!

The Cowie Family

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

This last Sunday the rain stopped and the sky cleared up just in time for photos with the Cowies! In celebration of mom and dad’s 40th wedding anniversary, all of the “kids” got together for a special family session, and I had a great time shooting this awesome family!

Hands down, my favorite member of the family was Lola, who had a pink collar that perfectly matched her “mom’s” Converse shoes :)

This week I was able to photograph a portion of one of my favorite families again when Chrysline and Michael brought out little Mahlia for her 11 month photos; we had to do them a little before one year so they’d be ready for the big birthday party! Mahlia is another one of those adorable babies who I have seen through from maternity photos. :) It’s so awesome to see her almost standing on her own and having her personality really start to shine. She is such an easy going girl; even though she was still a little sick with a cold, she didn’t cry, and we even got quite a few smiles out of her!


Vegas (Part II) – Erin and Krista

Sunday, March 8th, 2009

I really wanted to do a photo shoot when I went to Las Vegas, so I was thrilled to find out Erin would be there while I was, along with one of her sisters, Krista, and her mom, Verna. I photographed Erin’s wedding to Jonathan last summer with Litwin Photography, and will be shooting her sister Bethany’s wedding this upcoming summer (my last Litwin booking), so I’ve come to know the family quite well!

Verna didn’t want to be in the photos, but Krista was easy to talk into doing a few with her sister. In my limited location scouting time, I picked out the Forum Shops at Caesar’s Palace as our location, and was really glad I did! In under an hour we shot outside AND on all three levels of that part of the mall, so we got tons of awesome shots.

Ideally, I would have kicked all the other people out of the area and gotten some cool photos on the spiral escalators, but well… maybe one day when I’m famous and have that sort of pull ;)

I was also really disappointed that no one else tried to jump into our photos like when Sarah and I did our shoot! I guess this time, we shot too early in the evening for passerbys to be drunk!

Thanks, girls, for being my models!
