Wow, am I the luckiest girl in the world or what? Every year I get to photograph these gorgeous nieces and nephews of mine (and my kids of course) for their valentine cards. Each one so different and that is what I absolutely love about them. Some are funny, some are quiet, some are so tender hearted.
It is unusually warm in Calgary right now so going outside wasn’t so bad this year. I am sure that Winter is still to come!
I hope that everyone has had a great Valentines Day. I sure have. I was able to celebrate with not one, not two, not three… but six awesome boys this year!
I was also about to choose a winner for the free photo session that I was offering on Instagram. Can’t wait to meet them!
Lots of love to everyone today! (and everyday ).
Although we haven’t had a ton of snow this year in Calgary, we have had some pretty days with snow on trees.
I woke up one morning and looked outside to see the frost piled up on the branches. I quickly called my sister and asked if I could borrow my niece for a few minutes. This frost is usually gone pretty quickly as the day warms up so I wanted to be sure to take advantage of it while it lasted. Amazingly enough it hung around for a few days. I couldn’t believe it.
It’s been a crazy winter in Calgary. We haven’t even gotten out to ski yet because of the lack of snow. Skating has also been challenging as much of the river is not really frozen. Tobogganing? Nope, not really. The hills have pretty much been bare. Don’t worry, I’m not giving up hope yet. It’s still early February and I’m sure that we still have 3-4 months of Winter ahead of us!
Thanks Penny for always being my willing model. I hope that you’ll let me be your personal photographer for years to come!
One of life’s greatest gifts is awesome friends! I have been blessed to have so many amazing people in my life and my good friend Maria is no exception to this. Photography is what brought us together but so many other things have solidified our friendship. She is an amazing girl and I love and respect her for so many reasons. She is such an incredible mom and is a constant example to me.
Maria took these photos for us and I love them! We had family photos done while we were in Hawaii in March and I absolutely loved them too but I wanted to get a few new ones since Chris had worked so hard to lose 65 pounds this past year! I was able to drop a few myself
These boys are our life and I am so grateful to have pictures of us together as they have grown up. The growing up is getting faster and faster and some days I don’t know what to do about it. I love looking back at these moments.
So again, thank you Maria! When can I return the favour?
