Jenni & Bosco

Sunday, November 22nd, 2009

Today I went to play in the coulees with Jenni and her yellow dog Bosco (and yay, no wind for once!). Even though Bosco is 4, he has all the energy of a puppy so I really had to chase him or act very quickly to get a lot of these photos! These two are such a cute “mom” and her baby :) (more…)

Brenda, Luke, and the Pugs

Sunday, October 18th, 2009

Second shoot of the day! I’ve photographed Brenda before, but this time I got to meet her husband Luke and their “children” Leah and Oliver :) I had such a great time with this little family, and I was very impressed with Leah and Oliver’s photo attention, but then again, so were Luke and Brenda!

(I’d also like to add how much I love the new landscaping at the Sunridge marsh. These photos were all taken in a single location! I know the field will be lost to houses in no time, but right now that park is so diverse and wonderful.)

Jasmin & Edward… and their babies!

Monday, September 28th, 2009

I’ve worked with Jasmin before, but this time she was in the spotlight! We took advantage of what might be one of the last warm days of the year for some family photos with her, her husband Edward, and their four-legged children. I had a blast working with this sweet family :)

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 :)

Birds of Prey Centre

Friday, September 5th, 2008

Last year we were asked in Photo Club to donate any photos of “Albertan animals” to the Birds of Prey Centre in Coaldale for a photo exhibit they were putting on. My gopher photo was one of the images chosen, so I was given a free guest pass for this year, which I finally used recently.

I wasn’t as intrigued as last year, as I exhausted the photos I could take that time around (opting to take more “noble” looking photos of the birds), so I spent much less time there on this visit. It didn’t help that I felt too impatient to wait for the flight demonstration, after which I could hold an owl again! However, I was pleasantly surprised with some of the photos I captured… all animals can be quite amusing if you watch them long enough!

Sarah & Theo

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

Because last year was so awesome, Sarah and I wanted to do it again with her other horse, Theo (the one in my award winning photo!). Theo is a lot harder to work with because all he wants to do is eat, and it’s hard to push that Crusher around to get him to do what you want, but when we distracted him from grass/reins/dresses/other chewable things long enough, it totally paid off.
