School is OUT and we are ready for an amazing summer of adventuring!  There will be water fights, slurpee runs, hikes, road trips, spy games, soccer, BBQing, gardening, reading, resting, biking, exploring, playing, crafting… and documenting the days in some new ways!  Tomorrow I begin a new personal project – Summer75 (because there are 75 days of holidays!) where the photo-a-day hiatus comes to and end and a few new elements are thrown in!  I am so excited!! Bring on the sunshine!

I realize we are just at the end of May, but this weather sure makes it feel like summer is here!  I can hardly wait to get outside to shoot this season… if you’re considering a family session, contact me soon as there is limited space through the summer!  Would love to get outside to play!

A few from a backyard session last summer with our dear friends…

People often ask what kind of photography I do and though I would say that a large portion of my work is with families, a good portion may be considered somewhat commercial.  For many years, I’ve worked with the amazing designer, Natalie Fuglestveit, shooting all her projects for her portfolio.  Over the past couple of years, we’ve begun collaborating on custom artwork for many of her showhomes and private clients.  This has been such an amazing creative outlet for me and have just recently decided to start sharing some of this work.  When time allows, a proper website will be set up for the art, but in the meantime, I’m going to post some of our projects… if you have any interest in purchasing a piece or working to come up with something custom for your space, give me a shout and I’d be delighted to work with you!!

PROJECT:  Calgary Executive Suite

DESIGN CONCEPT:  Elegant Vogue

IDEAS:  abstract people in downtown, modern/ clean, white, punches of colour;  b&w downtown skyline, night
