Calgary Family Photos Fish Creek Park | Clark Family

Daphne has been working for the last 3 years as a wellness consultant with doTERRA essential oils, and this year will be featured in their leadership magazine this summer. She asked if I would take some photos of her family to be included with her article. We met at Fish Creek Park and just had fun running around in the trees and getting to know one another.

Daphne & Darrin said that this was their first family photo session in YEARS. It was such a pleasure to be able to capture their family and all that goes along with being a family; things like playful banter, dad jokes, mom telling her kids to get along, and lots of love and laughter.

Congratulations to Daphne on your exciting achievement! If you would like more information about what she does you can check out her doTERRA website here. And keep an eye out for her feature in the July issue of doTERRA’s leadership magazine.

Rocky Mountain Engagement Photos | Hannah & Austin

I’ve known Hannah and Austin for quite a few years, and have taken photos of each of their families on numerous occasions. But I had no idea that they had gotten together and so when we first met to discuss their wedding and I realized that Hannah’s fiancé was that Austin, I was completely shocked! I think I just yelled “WHAT?!?” for several minutes with a dumbfounded look on my face. They just smiled and laughed and told me about how their friendship had turned into romance, and now are planning a spring wedding at Heritage Park.

We took a road trip to the mountains on a beautiful, sunny winter day to shoot their engagement photos. We drove through the picturesque scenery of the Rocky Mountains, ran to chase the setting sun (literally), and finished off at the very bridge where Austin proposed to Hannah. These two were up for anything including getting wind-whipped, driving through avalanche territory, and almost getting stuck driving up the mountain. Their playful banter made the session so much fun and it was so clear to me that these two have a deep and genuine relationship.

Hannah & Austin – Thank you both SO much for allowing me to capture these beautiful memories for you. I am beyond thrilled that you found each other and I pray that God will richly bless you in your marriage. I can’t wait to witness you say your vows!

Holi Powder Gender Reveal Session

Daniel & Jessica are having another little GIRL! Jenny gets a little sister, and I get another sweet niece to spoil:)

They wanted a fun way to announce the news, so we decided to break out the holi powder and have a party! We did the Colour Me Rad race together a few years back and had an absolute blast – so this time it was Jenny’s turn to get doused in colourful powder. She wasn’t too sure about it to begin with, but soon found so much excitement in getting dirty and we ended up with some really fun images.

I’m SO excited for you all and I can’t wait to meet your new little bean.

“Because when you stop and look around, this life is pretty amazing…”

I once again had the privilege of photographing the Ginn Family in their home. Cleo has grown lots since her newborn session and her sweet blue eyes just melt my heart. I’m sure she’ll soon be able to keep up with her big brother Tommy. That’s probably a really scary thought for her parents though, hey Tom & Shauna? Tommy is one of the most energetic, outgoing little guys I’ve ever met. He brings me such joy, and he even let me throw snow at his face at the end of our session as he squealed with delight.

It was Shauna’s request that we could somehow incorporate her grandmother’s old piano into the photos. It was built in 1908 and has been in her family for 3 generations. Now, it is showing its wear and is ready to be passed along to a new family. This piano has been instrumental (<–see what I did there? I think Tom’s humour is rubbing off on me…) in shaping Shauna into lovely musician with a heart for God and for leading others into worship. I’m so blessed to be able to call this family my friends. Thank you all once again for allowing me into your home to capture these memories for you. Much love, Carlin

Winter Engagement Photos at Edworthy Park

If you live in Calgary then you know that one really can’t plan on our weather. We can have sweltering heat in October or a blizzard in July. While our winters are typically pretty cold, we can have weeks of nothing but brown slush leftover from melting snow and dirty cars. Not exactly the most picturesque winter scenery.

So when I woke up to a winter wonderland of fresh snow just in time for Warren & Sarah’s engagement session – I squealed with delight. And even though we were all freezing our tushies off, we had the best time and I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face all day.

Warren & Sarah are so natural together. They are playful and romantic and it was obvious to me that they are each others best friend. They met a few years back playing softball, where their sporty friendship blossomed into love. Warren proposed on that softball field where they used to play with the most stunning pink engagement ring. Now they are planning a spring wedding in Calgary on the anniversary of their first date! How amazing is that? I cannot wait to see these two tie the knot. With Sarah being a wedding planner, I’m sure their wedding will be absolutely impeccable.

Thanks for a great afternoon you two! I loved every minute of our time together and I can’t wait to do it again (hopefully with sunshine and warmth this time)!
