It’s that time of year again! Time to capture your wonderful family memories with the beautiful crisp air and colourful wonderfullness ( I dont’ think that’s a word but that’s okay) that is fall. And… you’ll have your photos done on time to send out for Christmas!
I have plans to shoot at Fish Creek, St. Patricks Island and East Village, Edworthy Park and Griffith Woods. There are choices of dates available rather than planning only one day of shooting unlike other years. 🙂 Keep in mind though that the leaves are already changing and it’s better to book sooner rather than later. The leaves are usually gone by the last week-end of September! Wasn’t it just last week that it was 30 degrees out there. Why does summer have to end so abruptly? It takes me by surprise every single year.
I’m not sure when our oldest son grew up but apparently it happened! Last year he hiked the West Coast Trail with 3 friends and I seriously thought they would all starve to death. After all he barely knew how to cook a frozen pizza. Or maybe they would freeze to death after a big rain because would he really know how to dry his gear if it got soaked? He was my little guy and I worried the whole time. They had a wonderful time, didn’t get lost, and came home dry and well fed. It was then that I realized he was a grown up!
After that he met Sarah who’s been in his life for 9 months already. They are off on a road trip in California right this moment. (It’s not nearly as scary for me this time). Right before they left I took them out and did a photo session at Fish Creek. He’s still my little boy, but he’s all grown up.
I thought I’d try my hand at photographing puppies so when one of the families that I photograph every few years said they were having Keeshond puppies I jumped at the opportunity. They were adorable and fluffy and full of excitement, energy and fun. We spent most of the time puppy wrangling and laughing rather than photographing but we still managed to get a few photos to capture the sweet puppy moments!
This girl of ours… she amazes me every day, every year. Her school year ended with her giving the Valedictorian speech to her grade nine graduating class. She was on the honour roll with distinction every semester, played volleyball, flag football, won the red ribbon in discus and played on three basketball teams. She’s smart, she’s funny, she’s mostly sweet and she is full of spirit. She’s going somewhere this one.
