It's about time we met.

That are simple, casual and no stress.
Then you're in the right place.

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, reading.
AND my secret shame - Real Housewives.

what I'm known for:

If you had asked me 10 years ago where I thought I'd be now I'm not sure what my answer would have been. 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 often feel like a kid in a grown up's body. I think this is why I connect so well with children and can get silly with them.

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.

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

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!
