Photo-love.

This week was filled with babies for me! Last Saturday I shot a birthday party for 4 adorable little tykes turning 1 (checkout http://www.facebook.com/CreativeButtonPhotography for images) and then I did a family session with a new mom and dad and their new baby, along with grandma, grandpa, and auntie  I tell you, I am so lucky to get to capture these precious, beautiful and amazing moments! I think last weekend produced some of my favourite images EVER! The families were all so amazing and so great to work with! Everyone was just completely on board with getting great end results, which always makes my job easier! The love I felt this weekend for family just spoke loud and clear about all of these people. It made me think about one day having a family of my  own and how that might change my life and fill it with more joy than I have yet to know! Anyway, here they are! For more images check out my facebook page! I must admit, I finally feel like I am hitting my stride and finding my style and it feel GREAT!Image

 

 I hope you loved these photos!

Thanks,

Family fun times!

It is 12:26 am and here I find myself catching up on a much needed blog post. I am in the midst of returning to school for second last semester of my BSW and find myself wishing i knew I loved photography a long time ago, alas, Social Work is still a love of mine, and I am going to get that dang piece of paper if it kills me! I paid a lot of money for it!

Anyway, back to photos. I have found myself getting steadily busier and about to go into the busiest month I have ever had! YAY ME! It seems that all of my sessions lately are family sessions (maybe the universe is trying to tell me something) anywho, since I have had several sessions since my lovely little sissy and all with my new D7000 I figure I may as well share a few shots from those events!

Ohhh on a side note, I indulged in buying a new 50mm F/1.8 lens as well as a Kelly Moore camera bag (2 sues) which I am patiently awaiting in the mail Eeeepppp! I am so very excited!!!!

Anyway, here are my family shots from a total of 4 sessions!

To be 16 again | Calgary Event Photographer

Hello all, it is me again!

Ahh 16, what a tender age! Full of drama excitement, knowing everything, passion, bullying, and getting out of high school alive. I must admit, I AM SO GLAD I AM PAST THAT, like 10 years ago!!

On the up side, I had the pleasure of photographing Miss. Daniela’s sweet 16 party. What an amazing, kind, and genuine young lady! All of this was a big surprise to her and boy was she surprised when her parents had a limo, her best girlfriends, and a hall booked out for a party.

We went out for some fun group shots and then off to the hall for the dance! All of the young ladies were delightful and so sweet! I was so lucky to be surrounded by a family full of love and compassion@ Daniela’s grandparents even made the party all the way from Peru!

I was so lucky to get a chance to photograph a family with so much love to give, it kind of reminds me about what is really important in life. So, I am lucky to say that I had such a great chance to meet so many amazing people!

Here are a few fun pictures from the evening!

Back to basics

Hey all,

So here goes, again! This past year has been a whirl wind for me. With finishing up my BSW starting my business, planning a wedding, moving cities and the list goes on. I have had a hard time getting back to the basics of why I love photography. On Friday of last week ( the 15th) I realized it had been absolutely ages since I had stopped to take pictures for my self – you know sunsets, creatives, and all the fun stuff that people don’ pay me for. I couldn’t believe it! I was shocked that it had been over 9 months since I had taken a random pit stop on the high way or pulled in to some dodgy alleyway.

Well, being me I found myself in a farmers field as I was making this realization and I stooped to take a few photos just as the sun was beginning to set. It was so fabulous! The best thing I have done for myself in a long time. It lead to a whole series of great inspiration and wonderful ideas for future shoots and I found myself in love with my camera all over again. It was such a great feeling. I spent the whole weekend snapping pictures and loving life!

I guess my less was to remember to appreciate the small things and do this for me. I need to continue to do this because I love this, not because someone pays me to do it. So, like the title  – back to basics!

Here are a few of my weekend shots! ImageImageImageImageImage

Hope you all have a great week!
