This was another of those sessions where the snow was so magical and perfect. You can’t really plan these things, you just have to be grateful when it happens.
These boys were so cute and had so much fun in the snow. Their sister was a little more hesitant as it was the first time that she had every really played in the fluffy white stuff.
I’ve known this family since they first moved to Calgary several years ago now. They are truly some of the kindest people you can find. Funny, generous, and hard working.
I love photographing families… each one is so unique and so awesome!
If you live in Calgary you are definitely familiar with the saying, “If you don’t like the weather just wait five minutes”. We learned our lesson on this day! We had actually rescheduled our photo session earlier in the day because it was nothing but rain and sleet. Definitely not something you want to stand outside in. Then, the most magical think happened… as it often does in Calgary. The snow started to fall in the most beautiful way. We quickly called each other and jumped in the car! Then… this happened.
It was so great to spend time with these beautiful girls. I was lucky enough to be there when this gorgeous little girl was born. She is such a beautiful and loveable baby… I can’t get enough of her.
One of the things I love most about my job is getting to meet new people and reconnect with old friends. I have known this beautiful mom for over 20 years. It was such a pleasure to spend time with her and her awesome family!
They are moving pretty soon and wanted to remember and document this fun space where they have grown up. A place where their kids could run free, explore, create and play! Unfortunately this area has been designated for construction and the big trucks showed up just days after we enjoyed this time together. We had a similar space just down the road from where we live and I know how grateful I am to have made the time to photograph my kids in that precious area.
Each of the children were able to show me the areas that meant the most to them. I loved that they each had their own thing and we were able to make the time to photograph them in that special place.
Please!! Make the time to photograph the things that are most important to you. You will never regret preserving memories.
