Snow Bunny

We've had a White-tailed Jackrabbit visiting our yard for most of the last week. It disappeared for a couple of days, but returned yesterday, just in time for Snowpocalypse to roll into town. The poor little bunny dude looks so miserable out there, but it seems comfortable enough all nestled down into the snow. I'm glad it's not me out there!

Personal – Holidays

It's been pretty quiet around these parts for the last few weeks... I was extremely busy from mid November through mid December trying to make sure that all my existing Calgary clients had all the gift prints and portraits that they needed ready to go in plenty of time for Christmas. And then I went on holidays myself. I've been very fortunate to be able to take a nice long break through the holiday period to spend lots of time with my family, and I've hardly even thought about photography in that time. Of course I've made plenty of images of my kids enjoying Christmas and spending lots of time with their cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, etc., but for me that hardly counts at all since I do that all the time anyway. It has been a really nice break and I'm feeling energized and ready to start the new year. I've got a few fun photography projects that are already in the works and plenty of other ideas for new and exciting things to offer in the coming weeks and months. I'm really looking forward to the coming year and I hope that you will be there with me! I thought I would share a few images that I made on a recent trip to the park with my kids (mostly to try to keep the crickets and moths away from this site). These images are very typical of a lifestyle portrait session that I do with children and families. One major difference is that I forgot to bring a comb to clean up my daughter's hair.

In Memorium

I took my children down to see the memorial crosses that have been erected along Memorial Drive (in Calgary) in honour of all of the fallen soldiers with ties to Calgary. Over 1500 crosses were placed this year. While very sad, it is also really quite amazing and it was really nice to be able to take the kids there and to try to explain to them what it was all about. Although I have no direct ties (that I know of) to Robert Phillips, it was interesting to find someone with whom we share a name. This was the only cross we could find for anyone named Phillips...
