Let the Countdown Begin…

Posted on July 26, 2009

It was a very hot day for this maternity shoot, but Nicole was so easy going.  In fact, there was even a snake sighting that afternoon, mere inches from where she sat at one point, and she didn’t even flinch.  I, on the other hand, was pretty much hyperventilating on the inside… telling myself to just get the shot, and then get the heck outta there!  haha!  I’m such a wimp when it comes to snakes, it’s not even funny… phew.  Anyways, we ended up getting a bunch of great shots as well as laughs that day… thanks Nicole.  I can’t wait to meet the little ninja!  haha!

Stampede Time… yeehaw!

Posted on July 24, 2009

Well, it’s hard to believe that it’s the end of July already… and along with that comes the Medicine Hat STAMPEDE!  As usual, we fried in the hot summer sun to give the little ones (and their daddies) some fun rides, sights and let’s not forget the ever scrumptious mini donuts, elephant ears and lemonade…mmmm… 

I have a maternity session ready to blog, but want to wait for the second-time mom to see them all first, so stay tuned for those within the next few days!  In the meantime, here are two of my favorite girls thoroughly enjoying the fairgrounds!  Can’t wait until next year!

Clearwater

Posted on July 11, 2009

Well, we’re back… had a nice time at the lake despite only three of those days containing sunshine in any way shape or form.  Managed to finally read Twilight… ooh, what a good book.  Also had some awesome fireworks, campfires and good quality beach time with my family!  What a treat to not have to think about cleaning the house, mowing the lawn or even driving ANYWHERE… loved it.

So I’d like to post my first request for sessions… really want to try some new things with a couple of teeny tiny wee babes in the next few weeks!  I’m talkin’ brand spankin’ new, fresh into the world, wrinkles and all… newborns.  (Preferably under two weeks old actually…)  If you, or someone you know has one of these adorably precious little babies, or will have in the next few weeks :) please email me to set up a session at my “portfolio-building” price!  I will accept the first TWO replies that fit the criteria I mentioned.  Spread the word!  I can’t wait to hear from you!  In the meantime, enjoy my lake photos… they are memories we’ll cherish forever.

Portfolio-Building

Posted on July 3, 2009

Over the next couple of months, I will be trying out a new printing company and figuring out many details of my business to grow and expand however I can!  This means lots of beautiful quality and cool new products for starters ;)   During this time, I will also be looking to build my portfolio… setting up photo opportunities for more experience in particular areas that I want to work on.  Here’s where you come in… I will be offering “special prices” for these sessions, that will not be available on a regular basis, but rather sporadically when I come up with new ideas to test out etc.  I will post what I’m looking for here on the blog, and will accept clients for sessions on a first come, first served basis, with limited availability.  Keep your eyes open for the session style you are interested in, and you never know… it could be your lucky day :)   If you know someone who fits the description as well, pass on the information so they might have a chance to get in on the “portfolio-building” prices also! 

I will be away with my family for the next week(ish), so won’t be posting any session specials until I’m back… stay tuned.  I have lots of things in mind, and a whole week at the lake for peace and quiet (and some major beach fun and campfires) to come up with many more ideas!  Have an awesome kick-off to summer and remember to take lots of photos of your fun times and special memories… you simply can’t have too many! :)   Maybe I’ll even post some of my own here for you to check out… hmmm, maybe… Take care!
