Calgary Portrait Photographer
I was setting up my studio for Pawsitively Portraits (a recent pet portrait and charity fundraising event that I was a part of) and Melanie came along to help. Actually she just came along in hopes of being able to play with the dogs at the dog daycare where the event was held. She did get to do that, but she also helped me out a little bit. Mostly she helped by modeling for me when I was ready to test my lighting. Of course that led to many silly pictures of Melanie having fun in the studio! She’s always a big help!
All of the pet portraits from Pawsitively Portraits will be presented in black and white, so I’m showing these the same way…
We spend a lot of time at the Calgary Zoo. for the money it’s one of the best family attractions around, and we all love to be there. Lately I’ve found myself spending a lot less time watching the animals and a whole lot more time looking for other interesting things. Of course my kids are pretty interesting themselves. It never ceases to amaze me that they can yell and scream and fight with each other, and then all of a sudden they’ll be playing together like the best friends in the world. It’s those simple moments in between that keep me excited and energized. They’re my little monkeys!
It was a very family day for us today… Swimming in the morning, Monopoly in the afternoon, Chocolate Pudding in the evening! I actually didn’t plan to do a Simply Sunday post today, but when the pudding came out I just had to photograph it. Food Photography is kind of fun, and when I see interesting food I often find myself reaching for a camera.
But even more than that, the Chocolate Pudding had a very crazy effect on my kids (go figure) and they both started to giggle and get crazy. As expected it ended up all over Andrew’s face (he is 3 after all) which was pretty funny. But then Melanie dabbed some on the end of her nose and Andrew thought that was absolutely hysterical. Aren’t children great?
