Forrest Update

Here are some more recent photos of  Forrest.

In July, we took Forrest to Capital X (I still call it K-days). He was still too small to go on any rides but he got to play the ducky game and he won himself a stuffed cow, which became the first stuffed animal that he became attached to and needs for bed time. He already knows the value of something earned, now that's good parenting....;-)

He loves trucks and I found this cool jeep at a garage sale for $1.  He loved it so much, he wouldn't be parted from it, even during nap time.

Standing outside the house with the flowers that he helped his mother plant.

Safe at home!

Just about two years old!

He knows that diaper cream feels good, so when he managed to get his hands on it, he took full advantage.  I found him like this, hiding behind the chair in his room.  He was crying because he knew he'd be in trouble...but I couldn't keep a strait face and so neither could he.

He loves his Mommy!

Auditioning for Trailer Park Boys?

Being silly with Daddy.

First trip to Rexal Place...went to Oilers Training Camp.

Helping Daddy wash the floor.

He loves the big field by our house.

He doesn't want to go home yet, even after the sun goes down.

Diedo being silly at Forrest's 2nd birthday party.

"Look me, look me"

A very artistic friend drew this on the envelope for his birthday card.

Yummy!  Birthday cake.

He had been practicing his candle blowing technique for weeks.

Home made sushi with soy sauce....mmmmm.

How's that song go?...'Don't go chasing waterfalls....'

HDR Landscape Photos

I truly love landscape photography.  Sometimes I wish I could just go live in the wilderness and do nothing but shoot landscapes.  I could let my beard grow out and befriend a grizzly bear...it would be awesome.

I've been experimenting with a technique often referred to as HDR (high dynamic range) and here are some of the results.

This first one was shot just off of QE2, very early in the morning, while I was on my
way down to Kananaskis.  The rest are from right in Kananaskis country.

Senior Photos

What do you think of when you hear the term 'Senior Photos'?
If you are like most Canadians, you probably envision a nice portrait of Betty White.

If you ask a typical American though, they will tell you that Senior Photos are what you get when you are graduating from high school.  Of course, everybody has their photo taken for the yearbook, but senior photos are something more.  It's a chance for them to have a photo shoot of their own, it's a chance to show their personality, it's a chance to show everyone that they are grown up and are ready to take on the world.

The best part about Senior Photos, is that there are very few preconceived notions about it, so we are free to take it where the imagination leads us.  An athlete might want to do a shoot with their sports gear, or maybe someone wants to include their favorite pet.  How about a shoot with your first car?
They can be dramatic & edgy.  Do you want to look like a rebel?  a rockstar? or maybe a model?  It's all possible.

Here are some shots from a recent senior photo shoot.  This sweetheart has Turner's Syndrome, a genetic physical & learning disability...but we're proud to announce that she's graduating from high school and will be attending college next year.
