*Stewart* Family | Calgary, Alberta

I am very glad we lucked out with such awesome weather for this session, probably the nicest day in the entire month of October!  But really…it’s not just the weather that makes the session.  It was wonderful spending time with my cousin and his family…all stylish and looking great as usual!

I’m glad I got to meet your sweet little girl too…she’s such a content baby!  Her busy, active brothers kept me on the go tho, I didn’t get a good cuddle in!  The kids did amazing…just a few sad faces and tears, but love their little smiles and giggles.  It was great to have props and cute toys to hold their interest, even if it only lasts a couple minutes at a time.  And then they find something new to explore and play.

Awesome to see your growing family, let’s get together soon! xoxo

juanita - wow, janelle, this sneak peek is AWESOME!!!! whata cute family…..love the colors……great shoot’n girl!!


These images are from a session almost a month ago.  Just after the super hot days that broke records and before the snow and record cold days in early October.  This was a gorgeous evening, the light was incredible and we met at a stunning location, just a short walk across a chilly stream to this island.  There were planned forest fires burning out in Banff Park so the sun had an amazing orange, pink glow.  I am so happy to post some images from this session…I was inspired this evening by the light, fall colors and time with an amazing person.  Thanks Lise!

*Shauna* Mini Session

It was cold so we made this a quick shoot.  My Dad has an old shed in the yard which he is planning to knock down soon.  I thought it would make for a fun photo shoot location…the roof planks falling down, interesting textures, lots of light from many angles.  Warmer temperatures would have made it more enjoyable…thanks to my lovely, adventurous sister we toughed it out for a bit!  I had to add one photo with kitty, she really wanted to be a part of the shoot.

*Holga Results*

At the Red Leaf workshop I attended in Victoria a few weeks ago we were given a Holga camera for our day on Salt Spring Island.  It has been at least 5 years since I have captured an image on film.  What a great gift…it definitely makes you really focus on the capture.  And to think differently.  The anticipation of sending the roll of film away and wait for prints really adds to the fun, not knowing what to expect.  Here are a few shots from my first roll.  I’m excited to take out my Holga again soon!

I just scanned these in on my own computer so there is detail missing that is visible on the actual prints.
