{Zach - The Great Knight} | Calgary family photographer

On a very, very hot summer day, I was invited to witness monster fights with knights with swords hosted by the fearless Mr.Z, surrounded by the warm love of his mom, Princess Shannon and the very respected Knight, Sir Mike! :) In moments like this, I wish I could see the world through little Zach's eyes when we were having fun running around. :) Kids are so incredibly awesome and that's why I love taking photos of them with their families. :)

{Anna + Ivan} Engaged! | Calgary wedding photographer

Yay! My best friend Ivan got engaged! Well...they've been engaged for a few months now, but we were waiting for the perfect weather to take pictures :) We actually had to reschedule our session a few times, as the weather just wouldn't cooperate. :(  Ivan and Anna {his, absolutely, gorgeous fiance} really wanted to have a themed engagement session done. :)  Using "Little Red Riding Hood" as inspiration, and a couple of boxing gloves...Oh yes, we had fun :D They made my job so easy! I just couldn't get enough of those two :)
Their wedding is going to be this September and I cannot wait to photograph that special day for them! Congratulations to you guys!

Calgary Concert Opera Company | Calgary performance photographer

One of my friends is an incredible opera singer - Barbara King. Her and Chris founded this new amazing company "Calgary Concert Opera Company", where they provide opportunities for opera singers to learn roles from different operas and to perform them for audiences in a comfortable environment. Barbara and Chris are fun, life loving, intelligent and kind people and every time I have to work with them - it's just pure pleasure.

The concert was amazing, all of the Voices were just mesmerizing! The hall was full and everyone enjoyed the performance. To me opera has some kind of magic and as I look at it - you MUST be an excellent singer as well as perfect performer and all of them were very good at it. Congratulations to Barbara and Chris on such a great beginnings!

Check out "Calgary Concert Opera Company" website for upcoming events.

Here are some of the photos from their Gala opening night:
