I will be off this week for holidays! I’ll be back, answering e-mails and phone calls on July the 6th.
On Friday we started our holiday off by checking into a hotel in Calgary and hitting the indoor water park. I brought my underwater housing for my G10 camera. Here’s all of us, except for my oldest son who was taking this picture. My youngest could only offer up her arm. She’s not at the diving-under-water stage yet.
Yesterday, we visited the Calgary Zoo. It was our first time there. The kids had a blast (so did we!) I can’t believe I’ve never visited the Calgary Zoo before. It’s such an incredible place to go as a family and it’s only 2 hours from our home.

Good-bye Calgary Zoo, we will be back next year 🙂
See you all in a week!
I have dreamed about doing these Connection Sessions for a long time. The focus is all about your love and who you are as a couple.
You get married. You have kids. You forget about celebrating and remembering that special something that exists just between the two of you. It’s yours.
This is S & D’s Connection…
Happy Father’s Day to the wonderful men in our life. We love you!
My funny Dad….
My devoted hubby…
My kind father-in-law…
You may remember her since I just posted about her a few minutes ago lovin’ the swing set.
Maya is sweet, sensitive, and full of smiles. Most importantly, today she turns 1!!!
Meet Maya’s lovely parents.
They can’t get enough of Maya.
Now, onto the cake smashing. Thank you once again to Penny Zulke for making another fabulous cake!
The session started with a Naked baby, and ended with a naked baby.
Time to get the tutu on, and let her loose!
Off with the tutu and time to really dig in…
Not only did she eat her 1 year cake, she also sat on it…
Happy Birthday pretty girl!
Remember this family?
They are back, and little Maya is 1 year old! To celebrate we did a family session and ended with a hilarious cake smashing session!
I wanted to blog these photos separately because they really show off how Mom and Dad adore spending time with their little girl. More to come from their session!
This is his little sister Myah who just celebrated her first birthday.
You may remember them from a session we did with the whole family last year.
To celebrate, we enlisted the services of a fabulous cake maker (thank-you Penny Zulke) to bake her a fab. one year birthday cake.
Isn’t it pretty?
Myah thought so too.
Off with the tutu, time to dig in!
Myah is so dainty, this really wasn’t so much of a cake smashing as it was a cake re-arranging…
We enlisted the help of big brother, who was more than happy to help a sista out…
I think he’s wondering how he’s going to eat all this cake. He especially loved the flowers.
They did good…
Thanks for coming to play with cake this morning and thank you to Penny Zulke once again for baking such a beautiful cake!
Last fall, I was invited out to the family farm to take family photos. Unfortunately, we didn’t have the best weather conditions and I wasn’t able to get all the shots I wanted too, so I came back for round two.
I think we did much better this time around and I was very thankful for the beautiful overcast day we had!
I hope this set adds to your previous photos from last year!
This time, the beloved family pets were invited to join in…
These last two photos speak of True Life to me.
The front yard is where the fun happens when they all get together.
There is no better joy in life than the Love within a Family!
Do you remember this beautiful family that came to visit me a few weeks before they welcomed little Marley into their family?!
I finally got to meet sweet little Marley. He is all cheeks!!!
Marley has a very proud big sister, who giggled and played with my daughter in between briefly checking in on her baby brother every once and awhile.
This next one is for you Dad! lol Looks like Marley has no choice but to be a fan 🙂
It was also Mom’s birthday on the day of this photo session. Happy Birthday pretty lady!
You must be so proud of all you’ve accomplished this year!
Congratulations, Happy Birthday, and please enjoy this parting shot! 🙂
Congratulations to Big Sister J. and Mom & Dad on the birth of a beautiful, chubby-cheeked baby girl (who looks a lot like Dad might I add!) I am so happy for you 🙂
Meet K. She graduated this past week-end. Isn’t she stunning?
The morning of pictures, K.’s Mom called me to change the location of the photo shoot to an area a little more quiet. I am so glad she did! The weather was perfect and the location was beautiful; complete with pole fencing, grazing horses, beautiful looming trees, and a bright red barn.
Love, love, love it (I’m such a country girl at heart)!
