MEET me

It's about time we met.
If you're into the kind of photos that are less posed and more organic.
The kind that have you smiling from ear to ear.
That are simple, casual and no stress.
Then you're in the right place.
Looking for something in particular? Here's where to start:

Well Hey There!

FAMILY photography in CALGARY, AB

Always dreaming up my family's next adventure - wanderlust is my middle name. My love of design. Reading, reading and more reading.
AND my secret shame - Real Housewives.

what I'm known for:

I've been so fortunate to photograph hundreds and hundreds of families since I began.
I absolutely love seeing the babies I photographed as newborns grow up before my lens.
Connecting with families and being able to give them the gift of timeless images has been my greatest pleasure. 

I have had the pleasure of photographing Calgary families for over 13 years.

MEET Virginia

Interested in more? Check out a few of my favourite things. . .

My approach to our session is simple. Number one I want you and your family to feel comfortable. This is the ONLY way we will get the photos you want. So that means there's no stressing allowed. I'll keep it fun, upbeat and casual. When we need breaks we take breaks. The less pressure everyone feels the better the outcome.

I'm all about simple.

what makes me different

Working with newborns and toddlers can be hard sometimes. Newsflash - they don't always do exactly what you want them to. And that's OKAY! I pride myself on being incredibly patient with all the children I work with.
I truly love playing with them, trying to make them laugh and giving them space when they need it.

I have endless patience.

what makes me different

I believe in taking your photos OFF the computer and placing them in your home. I believe photos are meant to be touched, shared and enjoyed everyday whether on your walls or in an album on your coffee table.

I believe in heirlooms.

She has an eye for capturing the most real and beautiful moments with my daughter and I. She has been photographing our family for the past 5 years and each year I'm even more impressed than the last. I would recommend her 1000x over!

"Virginia is one of the most talented photographers I know."

kind words

We have been fortunate enough to have Virginia capture our family on near 10 occasions over the span of over 6 years now. Truly can not put into words how grateful we are to have those moments in time captured in such a beautiful way as the kids grow much too fast and some family members are no longer with us. We are forever grateful for Virginia’s talent, kindness and patience exhibited each time. We love her relaxed authentic style and appreciate her great eye! Just amazing!

"The images captured by Virginia
are a treasure."

kind words

 Virginia was professional and prepared but most importantly she was kind. Having newborn twins, setting aside time for photos was not an easy task. Virginia was so incredibly patient as we took breaks to feed the babies, She made our older daughter feel special and through our chaos she was able to capture truly magical moments of our family. Thank you for your calm presence, for your compassion towards our family and for the photos we will forever treasure.

"We couldn't recommend Sweet Ginger enough."

Virginia of Sweet Ginger Photography is magical! She captures the most stunning photos of my little ones and we have used her time and time again. We couldn't imagine using another photographer. Without a doubt THE BEST family photographer around. Xx

With three children taking photos is always a challenge for my family. There is always someone not looking, someone grumpy, or someone goofing around. There are a lot of people that can take a nice photo, but what has set Virginia apart to us is that she is able to catch all the magical little moments that occur during your session. Our photos somehow captured the personality of our kids and all the invaluable memories that comes with that.

kind words

We have had the pleasure of having Virginia photograph our growing family numerous times over the last 4 years. Each time she amazes me with her beautiful photos! She was SO amazing and patient with our toddler and newborn son. People always comment how amazing our family photos are - I tell them we just have the best photographer, who somehow can make someone 4 days postpartum look good!

"She was SO amazing and patient with our toddler and newborn."

Jenn & Marc

kind words

We have been fortunate enough to work with Virginia on newborn photos with both of our children. Each time we were incredibly impressed with her patience and kindness as we took the photos and the end product was stunning. She definitely has a way with kids and our one and a half year old just adored her (and in turn our photos turned out great)! We look forward to having Virginia capture many more family moments to come and would highly recommend her.

"She definitely has a way with kids."
