Cutie Pies – Calgary Family Photographer

Earlier this evening I had a great time capturing images for quite the photogenic family!  My friends Dustin and Paula and their two gorgeous daughters Olivia and Kaitlin joined me out at one of my fave outdoor locations just west of the city.  More images to come in a subsequent post.  In the meantime, here are a few frames to enjoy.

More Baby Isabelle – Calgary Baby Photographer

Wow.  So many great images and this session was one of the easiest yet to edit.  Isabelle had such great skin!  As I mentioned in my sneak peek, Isabelle was just 8 weeks into her new life when I photographed her.  She was a model “model” – such a well behaved little sweetheart!  Here are a few more images from her session.  I could post so many more, but I think you’ll agree that she is one heckuva cutie-pie.  Thanks Derrick and Chris for the opportunity to photograph your pride and joy.

Baby Isabelle Sneak Peek – Calgary Baby Photographer

Derrick and Chris’ beautiful daughter Isabelle is almost 8 weeks old.  Until now, they hadn’t had a chance to have their little angel photographed.  Life becomes a whirlwind when a little one enters your lives!  Here are two frames from today’s session.  More images to come.

Mark & Penny: Family – Calgary Family Photographer

This past Friday Mark and Penny headed out on their first official “date” since my nephew Avery was born over 5 1/2 months ago.  We babysat Avery while his mommy and daddy enjoyed an evening out for dinner and drinks to unwind without their little boy in tow.

Mark and Penny called it an early night and arrived back at our house just as the sun was setting.  As Mark knows, when your brother is a photographer, you know what that means.  So we quickly headed over to one of the nearby ravines and managed to sneak in an impromptu photo session.  Here is a single frame of their little family just as the sun was about to drop below the horizon.  More to follow.

Abernot Family – Calgary & Chestermere Family Photographer

This session had a bit of everything in it.  I was in Chestermere to shoot images of Erika, Jeff, their son Tyson and their dog Boss for a quick maternity / family session rolled into one.  I recently posted a sneak peek of the session here.  The rain clouds were blowing east from Calgary and it seemed like the lighting conditions were changing every couple minutes.  Tyson and Boss were content to chase each other while I was shooting Erika and Jeff, and it was great to see Tyson horsing around with Jeff, who is quite the jokester in his own right!  Fortunately it didn’t rain on us and we were able to capture some great images.

Baby #2 is due early this week.  Meaghan and I are looking forward to meeting the newest addition to your family!  Cheers.
