Growing kids makes for great photos | Calgary child photographer

Growing up.

You know that age when it’s no longer cool to hug your sister? Or even sit close to her?

I guess it’s different for everyone…and every relationship.

But this pair totally made me flash back to when I was young!

I remember my older brother being too cool to put his arm around me. Or even talk to me.

In fact, I’m pretty sure he pretended he didn’t have a sister at all!


Anyway, isn’t that one photo hilarious (scroll down)?

The one where his arm is outstretched and it’s just kind of dangling over her shoulder?

So awesome. This is the kind of stuff that keeps me entertained when I am editing.

I can tell they truly love each other; there’s a special bond growing beneath the awkwardness.

But at this moment in time it’s not quite cool to hug your sister.

So how about they stand back to back, instead.

My goal, always, it to make people feel comfortable – and that goes for kids, too! So if touchy feeling isn’t your thing…we’ll find what is!

Wanna know a secret? I never set out to be an entrepreneur.


In fact, I didn't even consider that, one day, I would run my own business. I just knew that I had a gift and wanted to use it to help others.


Who knew that I'd actually end up helping other like-minded creative women with their business and branding photos?!
