Rebuilding in Progress

If you have visited my blog in the last couple of weeks, you will have noticed there are no photos of my sessions. Just a bunch of posts with  the same picture saying I need to update my 3rd Party Service provider.  For the last 10 years I had been using Photobucket to host my blog photos, because it was free. Yeah yeah I know. Free never stays free. And it didn’t. Overnight, one day in June, Photobucket broke the links for 10’s of millions of photos and sent out word that we had to pay for their highest level of service before they would restore the links. Myself and millions of other long time users were shocked and very upset. So I am now trying to rebuild my blog by uploading the photos again through MyFotoJournal, which hosts my blog. This is what I should have done in the beginning. In the meantime, please visit my Facebook Page for the latest photos. This will take a long time to fix.

Ps here is an updated photo of my little family. This was from the last few days we had with our little dog, Shadow.

McAlister Twins * Edmonton Newborn Twin Photography

This was my first newborn photo session with twins!  Baby G & T were just 9 days old when I met them last weekend - the wee littlest babies I have ever seen! Mom said her girl was fiesty - Baby T just didn’t want to sleep. Her brother slept like a champ though. One out of two ain’t bad ;)   They have the cutest nursery and the cutest older sister who really knows how to work the camera! 

Congratulations McAlister Family your your new additions! And thank you for letting me capure some memories of their first days!

Busy Busy Busy!

While the snow and wind howls outside, I have been busy working inside on the business side of my company! My sample set of frames from The Organic Bloom has been ordered and and I can’t wait for them to arrive.  3 to 5 weeks….*sigh*. I have been stocking up like crazy on super cute newborn props on Etsy and I have been forming partnerships with some great businesses and non-profits!

Firstly, I have been accepted as a volunteer photographer for The Tiny Light Foundation which provides families, struggling with a child who has had a life altering diagnosis, free photo sessions.

Secondly, I have also been accepted as a volunteer photographer for Helping Hearts. Helping Hearts is another project with the goal of being able to provide free photography sessions for families with children who are suffering a life-altering illness or disability.

Thirdly, I will be a vendor at the Beyond Limits Trade Show October 22/23 in Edmonton. I have never participates in a trade show before, but I was drawn to this particular one because of their Mission Statement “To provide support (monetary & awareness) to local charities through trade shows - all while supporting local businesses & giving them the chance to network, advertise & grow!” Win win!

Fourthly, Teagan Photography will be one of the featured companies with Urban Chickadee. They are Edmonton’s Premiere Baby Planning and Room Design Services! “Helping Mom’s from Belly to Baby and Beyond!” Check them out! I will be offering their clients an exclusive deal…details are still being worked out.

And lastly, Teagan Photography is partnering up with Modern Mama, a group that is all about mom-focused events involving fashion, lifestyle and parenting – all with baby in tow. Anyone who has a Membership Perks Card will be able to take advantage of some incredible deals from local companies, including us. Anyone with a card booking a session with Teagan Photography will recieve 50% session fees and a free 5x7 frame from The Organic Bloom!

And cause I can’t do a post without a photo, here is a quick snapshot into my life right now….potty training and the iPhone. Whatever keeps her occupied works for me!

Head, Shoulder, Knees & Toes {I heart faces}

Here’s another submission to i heart faces weekly photo challenge. It’s all about “anything but a face” this week. Here is a shot from the summer with my daughter and her fascination with the water downspout. I like these weekly challenges (although I don’t participate weekly) as it gives me an excuse to post some of my personal photos!
