Lane & Acara - couple photos by Calgary Photographer Abbydell Photography

 Recognize that pretty brunette? Well she is the face of See Spot Run Dogwalking Services! All those cute pups that I get to photograph once a year hang out with this pretty lady all day long - lucky right?! It was fun to head out to one of Acara's secret dogwalking spots with her boyfriend (my brother) for a quick photoshoot. I've been so lucky to photograph a lot of my own family this year, L&A included as that doesn't happen very often! So grateful for their support in my career as a photographer!

Snowy Family Photos by Calgary Photographer: Abby Stanford

 The Buck Family is awesome. I've known Melissa for 7 years now, wow how time flies! This American girl is now at home more than ever in Canada with her bread growing husband and adorable step daughter. The Buck's were troopers during this cold & stormy shoot. The sky was so dark it felt like night, and the snow was coming down so quickly if you stood still too long you'd turn into a snowman. So glad they braved it, I love snowy family photos!

Thanksgiving. Family. California. Photographer.

 In honor of American Thanksgiving, I am posting about my favorite Canadian family living in the USA. Which also happens to be my sister & her family. I look forward to photographing the Ho's every year as it means I get to spend some quality time with them in sunny California. I am so incredible thankful for my sister and all of my family this Thanksgiving Day. I am also grateful for incredible friends & fans that keep my Facebook page lively, thank you for supporting me!

Anniversary Photos by Calgary Photographer: Abbydell Photography

Another year of marriage for the Reeder's equals another photoshoot with me! I'm allowed to play favorites when I have been lucky enough to photograph this couple and their little girl a few times this past year. They definitely win the title of most loyal customer for 2013! I am so grateful for their business and the relationship we have developed because of it. Wishing T&C another year of bliss wrapped in each others arms - aren't they adorable?! Happy Anniversary!

Elhert Family by Calgary Photographer: Abbydell Photography

 Golden hour success! We had great lighting just before the sun when down and the moon appeared. These kiddios were pretty chilly, but that didn't stop them from giving me great smile after smile! Always love heading out towards the mountains for photos and the Elherts were great models and made for great company!

The Elford Family - Calgary Family Photographer: abbydell photography

Meet the Elford Family! This extended family photoshoot was smooth sailing! Had a great time reconnecting with the Elford family and photographing their growing family. Excited to be seeing a few of these faces in the winter come skiing season!

Cooper Family Photos 2013 - By Calgary Family Photographer: Abbydell Photography

 The cooper family is back! And now a family of 4! Little baby girl was so full of heart melting smiles, what a cutie! Big brother Luke is already looking out for his little sister - he insisted on saving her from the leaves when she was berried in them - adorable! Always great to spend time with this fun family, thanks Coopers!

H&S Wedding - Calgary Wedding Photographer

 It's hard to believe that it has almost been a year since I photographed Hillary & Steve's engagement photos (! I had a wonderful time photographing their wedding day in the perfect fall weather & colorful fall backdrop. Speaking of backdrops, they were all spectacular! Hillary's parents home was filled with great big windows and a backyard to die for - perfect for getting ready, The Sacred Heart Church was filled with dreamy details, and our formal location (I'll leave that a secret :) ) had picture perfect fall colors! Their reception at The Italian Club was so personable with many heartfelt speeches and good times on the dance floor. Once again, I had an incredible time with this awesome couple, wishing them all the best as newly weds! Cheers!

Hairy Hounds Happy Halloween!


 Happy Halloween from the crew at See Spot Run Dog Walking Services! Today I had the honor of tagging along on the annual Hairy Hounds Halloween Costume Contest, hosted by none other than the AMAZING Acara Kada of See Spot Run! From mud rolling, to costume tug-o-war today was definitely action packed. And seriously, who doesn't love a cute pup in cute clothes?! What a fun day! The voting is happening now on the See Spot Run facebook page, so be sure to check it out, vote for your favorite costume & "like" the page for daily fun doggy updates and photos!

Quinlan Family by Calgary Family Photographer: Abbydell Photography

 Another year of photographing the Quinlan's and my how their girls have grown!  Such little ladies, they are so sweet and listen so well to directions! Can't say enough great things about the Quinlan's :)

Engagments in the Canadian Rockies

 So much love. These two are head over heels for each other and it's easy to see it. I had such a fun time with N & C at their gorgeous fall engagement shoot! They brought the whole fam out, so I couldn't help but photograph their little girl and new pup as well. Looking forward to their 2014 fall wedding nestled in the Canadian Rockies!
