How could we get through some of the harder stuff in life without a good sense of humour and an amazing family to back us up?
This family, who I love dearly, has really been put to the test these past few months. Their gorgeous little guy had brain surgery a few months ago so they thought that it would be fun to have a family photo session where they were all stitched up! Their son thought it was a fabulous idea and I think he was pretty pleased with the results. These pictures were actually taken just a little bit over a week after the surgery.
I am so happy to report that the surgery was a great success and hardly kept this guy down for a minute. What a blessing!
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!
