It’s been a chilly one that’s for sure! Typical Calgary its a decent temperature and then bam freezing and then this weekend it’s going to be TWELVE degrees again??? Despite the recent cold that has settled in, this winter has been absolutely beautiful and I’ve so enjoyed braving the cold with so many wonderful families, and this one was a blast! There were some snowballs thrown and broken fence posts (Mom wanted to re create a photo from when they were younger and the post they were sitting on may have snapped…. I may have taken a little longer getting the shot as well so I could capture their reaction to it haha – don’t worry they were safe!)
I’ve always enjoyed quotes. They’ve inspired me, encouraged me and often evoked a particular emotion or feeling. I find beauty and intrigue in the simplicity of their ability to capture my attention in just a simple phrase. Quotes tell a story. They are a verbal or written snapshot of a specific moment of time that can’t be redone or duplicated and yet when quoted have the ability to bring about those same emotions as when it first took place.
Photography is a vessel that allows me the privilege of capturing the moments that tell your story, a history, a personal unique and individual time that can’t be repeated or reproduced. My hope is that the story told in your photographs will allow you in years from now to share the original feelings your special day evoked with a world that otherwise wouldn’t have been able to experience it, feelings of pure joy, excitement, anticipation, pleasure, friendship and of love.
There is a story waiting to be told between each set of quotations and since pictures speaks a thousand words... let's give the world your stories.
I hope you enjoy the blog and seeing my work in a little more detail!
