2012- year in images- portrait sessions. calgary portrait photographers.

We love being part of the lives of families. We love creating images of babies, pregnant tummies, energetic kids and moms and dads. We even had the privilege of creating images of a birth this year- (the images from this session will appear on a later blog post). It is such an honor for us to have families choose us to hang out with them and take their picture- it is a relationship of vulnerability and trust.
Lots of clients have the goal of creating “one image where we all look nice and are smiling at the camera.” We take this job quite seriously and work hard to accomplish this goal but we find that the images that we love- images that fit our goal of being natural, authentic and personal- are the ones that happen in the “in between”. Between times where images are choreographed and prepared for, Jaime and I find that we can get the most priceless laughs, expressions and even cries, and images are created that are more powerful and more genuine. We love pictures that tell stories and these “in between” images are where true stories are told. Stories of love and happiness, joy and fun- the stories of families and how they are together. How they hold each other and look at each other and how they laugh and cry together.
These are some of our favorites from 2012- we’d like to thank all of the families and couples that trusted us to be part of their world and to tell a part of their story last year…
