Edmonton Christmas Minis -- November 23-25, 2018

Christmas Minis 2018 blog.jpg

Three days ONLY —  November 23, 24 & 25, 2018. Christmas mini sessions will be at my studio, conveniently located off the Whitemud and Anthony Henday in west Edmonton.

  • Sessions are 20 minutes long (appointments scheduled every 30 minutes, participants must show up on TIME). 
  • Up to 4 children per 20 minutes. If you have more children, please book two back to back 20 minute time slots.
  • And NEW this year — I can take bookings for families!  Yay!  There is a catch. My set can only accommodate families with small children, as the children have to sit on their parent’s laps. 
  • These sessions are also meant for those that are able to sit up on their own. Babies under six months old would have to sit with mom or dad for support. 

The style of this Christmas set up is perfect for pajamas or a Holiday outfit! You can also bring a Christmas book or toy for your child’s photo. I will have a few props on hand.

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.

Giveaway: 2 Fun and Funky Custom Frames from The Organic Bloom!

I am super excited that Teagan Photography is now a vendor for The Organic Bloom in Edmonton. I stumbled across their incredible vintage-looking frames late one night….and I fell in love with them instantly. Each one is handmade and the stunning colours are such a refreshing change from regular black frames (athough the black would make any photo a work of art as well).

I’d love to give two of these amazing frames away…so I will! You could win one of two custom 8x10 frames ($100 value)!

How to enter: “Like” Teagan Photography on Facebook and share this contest with your friends (click on the “share” button)! Let me know you did it and you are done!

(Just for fun…you can also tell me which frame you would choose if you win. My favorite is the Jessie in Tahitian Sky. The frame above is the Ricky in Lemonade)

Make sure you tell me what you did (on my blog or Facebook Fan Page) so I can count all your entry! Good Luck!

Deadline to Enter: Friday, February 4th 11:59PM MST. Only valid to CAN & US addresses.


Erin, Jeff & Gambit * Edmonton Couple & Pet Photography

Erin contacted me late last year about geting some photos of her family in a winter setting. She and her husband ski and love the snow, (although the amount in Edmonton right now is a tad excessive) so we trudged around the dirfts in the river valley yesterday afternoon. It was so nice out!

And Gambit was having a blast running through the deep snow. I love hearing what magic word will prompt a dog to look in the direction of the camera and me. For Gambit it was “kitty.” And he had such a hopeful look on his face that the mysterious kitty would appear!  I actually felt guilty after awhile for lying to him ;)

Best Face Photo From 2010 {I heart faces}

Happy New Year!  Hope you had a great Christmas. Like many people, it was busy for us…and included a lot of eating. Sigh…

I’ve been following the website I Heart Faces for along time. There is a lot of great information and a lot of great photos to look at! Each week they host a weekly “fun” contest. This week’s challenge is the Best Face Photo from last year. Of course my favorite of the year will be my own child. This is Teagan picking some canola flowers from the fields during the summer. She was concentrating so hard on getting the flowers that she leaned a little too far forward and did a sommersault right over the chair (seconds after I took this photo.)
