Calgary Portrait Photographer - Little Women Project 2018

Little Women Project - Teenage Girls

Having a teenager has got me rethinking everything. I remember what I felt like, how I walked around the halls in school and was so insecure. I was mostly uncertain with who I was, what others thought of me. So, having a teenage daughter myself and being a photographer, I decided with permission to get a specific group of girls together a week or so before their school year begins and photograph them for the next four years of high school. This year will be our first year.

My goal is inspire within. Meaning, I hope to show teenagers how to look within themselves for validation instead of outward. Now, I know that is may not be a realistic goal but I feel as though I have to try. I’m choosing to photograph them, via being an active participant both in a few portraits and also more candid or girl lead.

Some background info : I’ve always been inspired by one of the most influential sociologist, Charles Cooley and The Looking Glass Theory that I studied back in my university days. I want to see if we can challenge how we see ourselves while we are still forming out ideals of who we are, a teenager. In the looking glass theory, we determine our self perception based on what others think or feel who we are. I know that this is something we will always do but I strongly feel we can also influence ourselves by shutting out the external noise and look inside for who we are.

Here is year one! 2018-2019 School Year , 9th Grade

And Then There Were Three

Families aren't always born into existence but made by love. So, when you feel your heart tugging at you and you know your purpose is to become a parent there is nothing, and I mean nothing, that can stand in your way until your heart is made whole.

Adam and Jarom both knew that they were meant to be fathers. So, they opened their hearts to find exactly what they needed, their son. 

The moment I met these three, I became smitten within moments. I mean how could you not? Their manboy's cheeks are just amazing and when he smiles your heart melts like butter on a hot day. I swear I could have hung out with these three gents all day and I am forever grateful to be able to capture what love looks like for them. Please enjoy every great new chapter Adam and Jarom because your whole world is simply beautiful. 

Much Respect & Love

Hodgson Family

Spending time with one's family is basically, the best thing ever, to this particular Calgary family. They are sort of inseparable and I mean that in the very best kind of way. Its not always a guarantee that I will get to capture siblings that are actually close and each other's best friends. It even takes me back to my own youth and a time in my life when I felt carefree and connected to my little brother. 

What I love even more about this family is their ability to laugh at just about anything while loving each other unconditionally. It is something I couldn't just see not but also feel. It is also, my personal wish for every single family I meet and work with.

What the Hodgson's have is priceless and I think the world needs a bit more of. So, please enjoy the Hodgson family in all their glory and look out for the best dad pose I've seen this year.

Vanessa + Tom Married

Everyone deserves to have a love story that can be written on their heart for all the days of their lives.  This is exactly what Vanessa and Tom had and it was simply beautiful. 

We all have aspirations of what we want to be when we grow up or where we want to go in life. What makes this so beautiful is when you meet two souls who know how to encourage each one of your dreams to come true right before your own eyes. I met Vanessa and Tom at our first wedding photography consult meeting over big coffees. Vanessa and Tom both had been working a lot and wedding planning was very important to them but not how you may think. They were not only planning a wedding but planning on moving very soon after their wedding to pursue their next big chapter their lives. They have BIG DREAMS!!! So, as we got to becoming fast friends we ironed out everything about each other and we all knew that I was now going to be one of their biggest cheerleaders in their lives. 

On their wedding day, I could feel this sense of peace they both had. It was calling for rain all day, we were in an Calgary airbnb and all they cared about was being with each other and seeing their loved ones. For me, this is what a wedding is truly all about and I was excited my cheering for them would be well underway. 

Its important to know that Vanessa wore her mother's wedding dress and Tom had a custom suit made for him that was both perfection and timeless. When the two of them saw each other, I even teared up. It was magical. The rest of the day was just like that, magical, authentic and calm. I know lots of weddings have lots of highs and lows but this one was if it all had been written down in the history books. It was all meant to be. So, please enjoy their wedding day story below and I wish them both all the very best in their new chapter in Philly. 

Much love & respect!

Calgary Wedding Photography - Mehndi Ceremony

Alia + William

For the love all things bright, inspiring and full of colour I give you a beautiful Mehndi Ceremony that was here in Calgary, AB.

Who says you can't celebrate if you are having a destination wedding? Alia and William had the best of both worlds. They celebrated here with their loved ones AND got to get away to a beautiful beach to say they do. I however, didn't fit into their suitcase but I will never hold that against them. I wish y'all both all the happiness this worlds has to offer y'all both.

Much love & respect!

Sometimes you just have to have fun no matter what.

Here is there fun filled family portraits.

Calgary Wedding Photographer - Gay Wedding Inspiration Shoot

One Love is the Best

To know love, to express your love and to know that you can have a partner that was created for you for all the days, shouldn't be for just some. It should be for everyone. It is fundamentally how human kind was created; to have a companion. As social beings, humans will forever seek connection. Its why so much is written about the human connection and love. We ALL need love.

This is why I am still shocked at why same sex marriages are still considered taboo in many places of the world. I am going to get very honest here. I love, love. I don't care what others think concerning this and that will never stop me from shouting from the rooftops that LOVE, IS LOVE. 

I'm still hear stories of how my fellow wedding industry folks receive emails from same sex couples asking if they are 'LGBQT friendly'. This is a question that shouldn't have to be asked if you serve in the wedding industry in my opinion. If you are good honest folks who love, love, come my way. I will do my utmost to capture your day with all I have because YOU ARE LOVE.

** Every vendor on this creative team, without hesitation, signed up to showcase just how beautiful same sex marriages are to us. **

We hope y'all love this shoot as much as we do.

Canmore Wedding Photographer - Rocky Mountain Wedding Inspiration Shoot

These Are A Few Of My Favourite Things

Every spring I am drawn back to my childhood memories of watching a Sound of Music with my grandma Duncan. She loved, loved, loved Juile Andrews and she loved the mountains and every spring we would watch the movie after our Easter church service. We would also watch it on rainy May days too! It was our thing. I find I am more and more like her as my days carry on. So of course, when I was asked to partake in a wedding inspiration shoot based on the love of the movie the Sound of Music, I was all in, no questions asked. 

Now for y'all brides-to-be out there, finding the right inspiration for your wedding is essential. I say this all the time, but I can't seem to say it enough, it must hold near and dear to your heart. It can be the most beautiful event ever but if your heart and your personality are not clearing seen and reflected in your whole day, its could have been just another person's wedding. 

What inspired Claudette Marie Events is her genuine love of Julie Andrews, the songs and love in the sound of music movie she too grew up watching and those majestic rocky mountains. Its simply about what it means to have beauty, grace, playfulness and to find your love. She is a hopeless romantic after all. 

So, when asked all of us vendors came together and made what I call one of the most beautiful mountain-scape wedding inspiration shoots I have ever done. And, as such, It has been featured in a few places already but alas, here are a few of my favourites shots from it. I hope you are inspired to make your wedding reflect what makes you happy because your wedding is all about sharing your love with all those who come to celebrate the two of y'all.

Enjoy!

Calgary Family Photographer - Mini Fall Family Portraits

The Messer Family

Oh the Messer's y'all are extra special. 

One of my rules when photographing families is they have to be cool enough that I can have a glass of wine with the parents and joke with the kiddos. Life is too short to not work with the best. The Messer's are THE BEST. I swear I just want to go on a holiday with them and bring my camera because I like them that much. 

Thank you for having kids Dawn & Tony

Much love & respect, 

Christy

Calgary Family Photography - Newborn Sessions

Sakai Family 

The best gift you can give is the one that shows you care. Sometimes folks buy families sessions from me and I must say, its the gift that keeps on giving. I am always honoured to meet and serve new families, especially when I'm the gift! Lucky me!

The Sakai family, welcomed their baby boy into their lives and I have a very certain thought that they will never be the same. This baby boy will be so loved and handsome too. (His parents are gorgeous!)

Take a look see. 

Cheers, 

Christy

Destination Family Photographer - New Orleans Louisiana Family Portraits

The Staton Family

Well, well, well... when I travel, I also work. It is a simple as that. If I post I'm going somewhere you can bet I will also be shooting boudoir and family sessions too. And, I absolutely love it!!

So, here is the Staton Family. They are near and dear to my heart, as well, they are some of my cousins. When you are asked to be hired by your own family two things happen in my mind. One is are they kidding me, why me? The other is, how do you charge your family? Well, someone made a very valid point to me one day. If your family values you and what you create they are showing their love and support by hiring you. Its not different than when you are paid a compliment and you learn how to say thank you instead of hiding. 

So, Dana, Tony, Riley and Daphne, thank you for cheering me on, loving me so much y'all allowed me to capture your family and for reminding me, I'm worth it. I owe y'all everything.

xoxo Much love and respect. 

Your Christy (your cuz/aunt christy)

Calgary Wedding Photographer - Winter Wedding Engagements

Susan + Brant Engaged

Everything single thing happens for a specific reason. 

It is that simple, and yet, we try to control so much of our lives. However, we will find is to no avail everything that will be, will be. 

Susan and Brant, are two very kind people, who when you see them together, it is transparent that they don't have to say much for you to know that they respect and love each other very deeply. It is because of this, when I was taking their wedding engagements last weekend, I caught myself just wanting to let them be. They don't need much guidance, although maybe Brant does. he he He is like most guys, who are not quite sure what to do in front of a camera but when you tell him his one job is to love on his girl, he like all good gents, jump in with both feet and make their session amazing.  I think she would agree. Right, Susan?! 

With all my wedding engagement sessions, there are very obvious-to-me moments when I can let go and let the couple just be them. Its the simple part of engagements but also THE most important part. Couples need to be allowed to be themselves even if they aren't used to doing so in front of a camera. 

So, thank y'all kindly Susan and Brant; I cannot wait until your big day this September!!!!

Much love and respect, 

Christy

Calgary Family Photographer - Outdoor Family Portraits

Lojo Family Portraits

Watch me explore everyday. Watch me fail and try again. Watch me see this world for the first time for it is because of you that I am here. 

Being a parent can be stressful, exhausting and expensive but seeing your children see the world through their eyes, is what dreams are made of. So, when its hard, when its so consuming remember that you get to hold their hand, cheering them on and you are the reason why they exist. Love them with all you have and stop and watch them experience it all. Its magical.

Charisse, Serge and now their mayboy, Luka, y'all are exceptional. I'm so honoured to have been sent y'all as clients. Seeing y'all is a treat and photographing your family is inspiring. I say this because you see your son's and the magic he sees. You see his brilliance, his curiosity and his determination. Y'all love his smile and laughter with all y'all's might. But, my favourite part is how y'all laugh at yourselves often and truly embody what a parent should be like. I want to be parents more like y'all. 

Thank you both for staying young, being real and great humans. We need more folks like y'all. 

So much respect and love, 

Christy

Calgary Wedding Photographer - Syria Meets Calgary Wedding

Nicole + Nasib Married

May we all find that other soul created for us. For it is then that we realize that we have found our home that no longer determined by four walls, a street address or a geographical location. It is more of a theoretical place that is bound by a connection from their soul to ours.

When I met Nicole about capturing her wedding day, she told me of this man she had fallen in love with and basically the rest was history. Basically, that is how all love stories go. You meet, you realize that they are very different from everyone else that came before them and then well, you must submit to loving each other for all the days of your lives. Its simple. Its beautiful. Its amazing.

Nicole and Nasib, I adore y'all both and may all y'alls' years together be filled with so much love, passion, and laughter. 

Much love and respect, 

Christy

The Harder Family

You never know what lies ahead of you but if you follow your intuition and dreams you are sure to have the universe provide everything you will ever need. So, tell the universe what your dreams are and what you need so it all can come to fruition right before your eyes.

Background Info : Nicole and Graham one of my very first wedding couples EVER and yet, here they are still putting up with me. Thank you isn't enough but it will have to do this time around.

Nicole and Graham now have two beautiful little ones and well, lets just say they laugh at lot, are entertained daily and are busy parents. See what I mean, check out their mini fall family session below. I might want to add, their lil'lady is a lot like her uncle Mike and god help us all. She is going to be what stories are written about. Oh, and bless her momma and daddy! Y'all are all gonna be tough. he he I adore her to bits.... well the whole fam jam actually.

Until next time Harder Family.... Thank you kindly. xoxo Christy

Calgary Wedding Photographer - Fairmont Palliser Wedding

Sanja + Scott Married

When you know you just know. That pretty much sums up Sanja & Scott. They met and well, the rest is history.

One of my favourite things about the two of them, is how unbelievably perfect they are for each other. As it is with most of my clients, I have to get to know them both as quickly as possible. Both Sanja and Scott, have the most sarcastic sense of humour, they have this unspoken kindred spirit thing going on between them, and their commitment to be there for each other is down right beautiful. 

With their daughters, their families and their friends, they celebrated in style at the Fairmont Palliser hotel in downtown Calgary. Their first look was perfect. Their portraits were so much beautiful because they brought it. They looked stunning y'all. Their bridal party time was so much fun for everyone. Their reception viewing was jaw dropping. The dancing was off the hook and not just because I got called out and was told to drop it like its hot, now, but it was that good. Their guests enjoyed hours of Photo Booth photos by Flashco Booth. The food was amazing and it was one of the best overall wedding nights a lot of guests were heard saying. I say what is a job well done indeed. 

Sanja & Scott, thank you so much for allowing Cole and myself to capture your amazing day. We will and do both cherish being there and we wish y'all all the love your hearts can hold. 

Much love and respect, 

Christy 

Please enjoy some of my favourites from their unforgettable wedding day.
