Hodgson Glenmore Reservoir Family Session

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.

Messer Mini Fall Family Portrait Session

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

Lojo 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

Peters Fall Family Portraits

Peters Family

 

I've known you before you were born. I've loved you more than I ever thought I could love anything or anyone. Now, I have to learn how to watch you grown into the person you were born to become. May my heart stand strong.

Raising two boys, balancing all things life throws at you, all the while trying to laugh out loud as often as one can. I must say, these are the folks that are my heroes. As I am too entering the teenager phase in my own home, I can completely relate to Tammy who's son is now a teenager. While having a younger kiddo who still looks at you in thinks you are the knees bees.  

What I'm learning about teenagers, is how they still have you in the back of their mind as we are their first impression of what is the highest standard, however, they tend to keep THAT to themselves. Take note, those teenagers are watching us even closer than ever before because they are beginning to see themselves like you see yourself, human, fallible and vulnerable.  They are comparing their world with the rest and the serious questioning is just starting to begin.

To make things a bit harder, lets teach our child how to become a young adult whilst navigating in a world that isn't always so kind. This is what I call the most challenging of them all. So, lets hold our breath, because I know we all do at times, hope that they talk to us when they need anything and be ready to listen but, answer all the why(s) other folks do what they do. 

Tammy, I want to sincerely thank you for being a mom who loves her boys with your whole heart, you know when something is wrong and you care, you takes time to explain to your kids that you are not perfect and you show them that to truly live means being we must be honest, seek positivity always and that no matter what, you will always be their mom who loves them some kind of fiercely. 

Much respect, 

Christy
