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.

Pet Photos with Santa * Edmonton Pet Photography

Here is a selection of some of the photos from this past weekend at the Pet Photos with Santa fundraiser at the Edmonton Humane Society. I had lots of fun and there were a lot of super cute dogs and cats getting their photos taken.  Just like kids, there were a few dogs (mostly the big ones) that weren’t too sure about sitting on Santa’s lap, but they eventually all warmed up enough to the big guy to get a photo. A squeaky toy and treats also help ;)

*a special thanks to my mom, who watched baby Tristan for 5 hours each day, while I did the pet photos*

Pet Photos with Santa at the Edmonton Humane Society!

My first official foray back into photography (after a short baby break) will be snapping photos at the Edmonton Humane Society during their annual Pet Photos with Santa fundraiser. Mark your calendars and bring your pets to sit on Santa’s knee at the shelter on December 11 and 12 from 12:00 - 5:00 p.m. each day. There are other days (follow the pet photos link), but I will only be at the shelter only on the 11th & 12th! Hope to see you there!

Photos will cost $15.00 for a print or $25.00 for a print and a e-mailed digital copy. All proceeds will go to support the care of the animals at the shelter throughout the year. And Santa is equal opportunity — pets of all types, whether furry or scaly, are welcome. (kids are also welcome)

Here are a couple examples from last year…..

My New Baby Girl * Edmonton Newborn Photography

Here she is! Introducing Tristan Mckinley Anderson, born November 15th 2010 at 8.32 AM weighing 8 pounds, 8 ounces and 21.5 inches long. It took me awhile to get som newborn photos edited, as the week after I got out of the hospital was one of the busiest in our lives (maybe even as busy as the week leading up to our wedding!)

My chunky little girl was breech, so I opted to have a planned c-section as it was the safest way for her to be born. Now that I have had two babies, both ways…I think I prefer the c-section. It was over and done within an hour….no 33 hours of labour like Teagan’s birth! It was also special for my husband as he got to bond with Tristan while I was in the post-op recovery room. I think the hardest part (other than no driving or heavy lifting for awhile) is I can’t sneeze properly because it pulls the stitches!

Our little family of four has been adjusting to our new life and Teagan is doing really well as a big sister. She is constantly asking where her baby sister is and wants to hold her (as long as a camera is not nearby). I did take a picture of the two of them together. However, poor Tristan looks like she is hanging on for dear life and Teagan is doing her classic “blank stare”.  Teagan lasted about two minutes (even with the promise of marshmallows). Sigh….

I love these pouty lips (although I may change my mind when she is 10 and wants to wear lipstick)!

We are Seattle Seahawks fans and for my husband’s 40th birthday (which was the day after I got out of the hospital) he got a new Seahawks blanket from his girls. I thought it would be a fun background and Tristan seemed to really like it too.
