Wow, what a terrific weekend! Canada sets the record for gold. Loved the hockey game. Way to go.
Saturday was jam packed. In the morning I worked with A and her little one. There was a definite ladybug theme. So cute, and I have to mention their puppy "Tequila", that little one was trying to steal the show.
In the afternoon I had an outdoor shoot in Fish Creek Park. What a gorgeous day to go out and get some wonderful shots. I worked with L and her family. Two gorgeous little girls. They were delighted to explore all the great outdoors has to offer.
When I said Saturday was jam packed, I wasnt kidding. I did a consult for a very small wedding. I am very excited for this one, but no more details. I will save the surprise until after the big day.
Sunday was a bit quieter, I only had one shoot. It was with E and A. They are expecting a new bundle of joy very soon. I have to say as soon as I saw E I was so excited because she had this gorgeous belly. She had picked out some terrific outfits and accessories. Since we had such great weather again, we went outdoors for part of the shoot. That bright sunlight can sure be tricky, but I think that we got some great shots in the end.
My first shoot on the weekend was with K and her husband. Just moved into an incredible new home, I did some shots of the house and then got down to the belly.
K was full of fantastic ideas, angel wings, roses, and great costumes. She was fantastic at posing and by the end of the shoot I just had to ask if she had ever done any modeling. It turns out that she was Miss_____ (some European Country) a few years ago. I was quite impressed, but to look at her, you would not be surprised to hear something like that.
My second shoot was with S and her husband. They are expecting baby number 1. Again, S is one of those expectant moms who has some great ideas. I was absolutely in love with S's eye make-up, it was just so dramatic.
I am excited to see both of these little boys in a few weeks.
I had two terrific shoots on Sunday. In the morning I worked with J and her husband & daughter. The daughter was nearly six months old and so cheerful. She was smiling and so agreeable all morning. She let me put her in all sorts of different outfits, and use so many different props.
I am very happy with the photos in the end. I am hoping J is as well.
In the afternoon I went to work with M and her two daughters and young son. The daughters were so polite and great at posing. The younger daughter had this little twinkle in her eye that makes me think she has got her own little personality.
When I finally met the son, he was not too sure about me and my flashing lights and giant camera. He was sure he wanted his mom and dad. I did manage to catch a few shots of him playing with his toys when he was a bit more relaxed.
I just have to mention the M has one of the most amazing paintings.. She told me it was called "The Blue Comes Through" (I think). I have seen it in several places, never in anyone's home, but I just think it is so amazing.
