Glamour & Beauty Session -Tammy

This lovely lady came to see me because a special someone in her life bought her a session as a birthday gift. Her friend wanted her to feel special and experience a beautiful portrait session all for herself. What a thoughtful and fabulous gift!! 

Tammy's day started with hair styling by Claire at Curious Hair, followed by a beautiful makeover by Rachel Draper Jones. 

 

Tammy is a lawyer and has also been in the political spotlight, so she has had profession portraits before, but it was time for updated ones. She wanted a classic and contemporary look for her portraits which suited her perfectly. We did several looks, from formal business portraits, to classic, to soft and casual. I even convinced her to hold a some flowers for a few ultra feminine portraits. 

We had a lot of fun and Tammy really enjoyed her day.  And both Tammy and her friend loved her portraits.  Happy Birthday Tammy!

Couples Session - Dawn & Susan

This lovely couple recently came to see me to create some professional personal branding portraits. They are both in their 70's, but were so fun to work with and are just the sweetest!!! And they are incredibly generous people. Dawn & Susan are donating 5 university scholarships to the university they both attended, and needed some personal branding portraits for the university.  They are also very passionate gardeners and when I visited them to show them their portraits they gave me a tour of their greenhouses and gardens, and sent me home with some free range eggs, and a beautiful head of living lettuce from their garden. Dawn & Susan, it was a pleasure to work with you!

Family Session - The Beatty's

I've known Gillian and her family for many years so I was honored to be asked to photograph their family this summer.  Gillian graduated from high school this June and I did her graduation portraits a couple weeks before her grad. Her mom also wanted family portraits, and she originally wanted to do them on grad day, but quickly realized that it was going to be a very busy day!  So instead we booked the family session for the next day, and this turned out so much better!  We were able to take our time and do lots of different family groupings because we didn't have to rush to get done before the grad events. We were able to do the session in the evening when the light was better, and they decided to do a casual family portrait rather than one where eryone was all dressed formally. It was relaxed and fun and a beautiful evening!!

 

Graduation Session - Carolyn

I've known Carolyn since she was a newborn, and I photographed her as a brand new baby, so this grad session was extra special to me!! As you can see, Carolyn has grown into a gorgeous young lady!! 

We had a perfect spring evening for her photo session.  Carolyn didn't want her session to be overly flowery, but with the falling apple blossom petals and all the lilacs around, we couldn't help it!! 

Carolyn plans on traveling for a bit before she makes any future career plans. Congratulations on your graduation Carolyn! I know there's a bright future ahead for you!!

Graduation Session - Gillian & Rachael

These two lovely young ladies did their grad session together! We went to Riley Park here in Calgary on a beautiful spring evening when the apple trees were all in bloom and did portraits of each of the girls separately, and some of them together. What a fun way to celebrate their high school friendship.  Congratulations Gillian and Rachael!
