Elements of a Great Life | Lisa McDonald Photography

Yesterday was a bit of a whirlwind…but SO much fun!  I spent the day with the team at Element Integrated Workplace Solutions to bring some huge Christmas cheer to their dedicated clients.  What a fabulous idea for a Christmas Event!  I was hired on to capture family images (human & furry!) for the day while they ate, drank and were being merry.  This was so well received and every time slot filled!!  So for 5 hours I squeaked doggy toys, posed families and snapped away.  A HUGE thanks to the team at Elements: Shannon, Kelsey, Gillian, Gary & Greg for organizing a fabulous event and the set design of gorgeous KNOLL furniture.

and to our sweet furry friends….dare I say you were easier than children?!!  :)

Baby K | Lisa McDonald Photography

Nothing is better than being a part of amazing life moments.  I was so lucky to have photographed the wedding of baby K’s parents just over a year ago.  So now, how great is it to photograph this next beautiful step in their lives!  I took full advantage of snuggle time with this gorgeous baby boy.  He was absolutely AMAZING, slept like a doll and made things pretty easy for  me.  I am a pretty lucky girl to have so many great clients…and that now includes this little peanut :)

Amanda & Kevin Engagement | Lisa McDonald Photography

long overdue…and excited to share a few images from my gorgeous niece’s Engagement session.  With busy lives, its so rare I get to spend time with these two!  This was such a nice fall afternoon to see them connect, have some good laughs and hang out together :)   I am so happy that they have found one another in this big world; their love is infectious to say the least.

Fall Mini Sessions – Part 1 | Lisa McDonald Photography

This month Ive been offering a few days of Fall Mini Sessions; rounding up to 19 families in total :)  Yes, I could possibly have a few screws loose…HA.  They have been a HUGE hit this year and while I am still in the depths of organizing, editing and executing them all, I thought I would share a few!

Brothers…so fun…and so much boy trouble!   Oh you boys make me smile from the depths of my heart.

Two year old boys love to run, and play….   I have been photographing this sweet child since he was inside mommy’s tummy!  and is it just me, or do we not have a TON of cute kids in Calgary!!!  look at this gorgeous toddler.

Sisterly love. Two girls that always pull at my heart strings.  Again, since the eldest was in moms belly.  I have seen these two thrive and get more beautiful every year.

O my Gosh…this adorable boy had THIS much hair when I photographed him as a newborn!  You’d never guess these were taken during his ‘witching hour’…and I know mom was worried…but boy did we capture some sweet images of him :)

Stay tuned for more!  and have a fantastic sunny September in Calgary!!  its been amazing hasn’t it?!
