Tumbling in the Long Grass. As September drew to a close the weather in Calgary became very erratic and on the day of their original shoot we were treated to almost 0 degrees and a mess of rain. Opting to try our luck a couple days later we were treated to a beautifully warm fall early afternoon.
We met the Gough family on a beautiful sunny day at the Glennfield Area A of Fish Creek Park. The week before, while bike riding around the park, the family came across a lovely red shale path, which would become the backdrop for our session.

There are tricks that Continue reading
Tiny Blessings Catch Me If You Can Photographing a child who is almost 2 years old, can go many different ways. But no matter how it goes, it’s always an adventure, sometimes makes me shake my head, always pushes me to think of new ways to distract them, requires strange noises to catch their attention Continue reading
