October 1, 2008 Fall Update

Hey gang! Wanted to take time for a quick update….


First – we are nearly booked solid for 2008 portraits. If we are already working to book your session – no worries! Any new inquiries that won’t fit in our 2 or 3 spots left will be added to a waiting list in case there is a cancellation.


Also – if you have had photos done this year and are interested in custom design Christmas cards or photos for gifts – now is the time to start thinking about that! Just pop us a line!!


Tomorrow I am having a photographer from Winnipeg – Jodi Klassen – coming to stay with me for 4 days to job shadow. I am so excited to meet Jodi! I have 4 days of solid shooting planned for us – so watch back for lots of photo updates!


I also was thrilled – and shocked!!! – to receive this email from Trina in the Yukon. I thought the only thing I Was famous for was winning a goldfish eating contest back in the day – ha ha.

“I am recently taking a photography course in school and we have to do a project on a famous photographer. You see where this is going.. ha I picked you , i love your photos, they are beautiful, unique and detailed and when i think of a photographer the only name that appears in my head is Krista Jefferson. Now i hope that didn’t sound cheesy but really that is the only way to put it.”


And I got to say, work has been crazy busy – Fall is always our busiest season with portraits, weddings and orders. I have been busy trying to keep up… but then I get an email like this from last weekend’s groom, Ted, and it all seems worthwhile:

“I just saw my Wedding photos on your blog and I have tears of happiness. They are beautiful. Thanks for capturing our special day.”


May you celebrate life and love today!!


A couple weeks ago I did bridal portraits for Kristen – I had to wait to post them until she was married! Now that she’s said “I do!” I can post these beauties!

October 1, 2008 Maclean family

Way back in high school I knew Jacquie – haven’t seen her since high school! On Sunday I had the pleasure of not only seeing her – but her husband, daughter, and extended family! Jacquie and her sister Laura both have some of the cutest girls ever – they were so easy to photograph! It was a great way to spend the morning!

We started with Jacquie and her family – her daughter Natalie is a sweetheart!!!

And this photo may not be perfectly in focus – but I loved the emotion of Grandma and her girls as they embrace upon arrival.

I adore kids – whole reason I got into photography after all! And I love listening to kids – having them tell me about school, bugs, friends, Hannah Montana, random facts… on the walk back to the car we were having a great chat and I just received this photo in my inbox! Love it as it reminds me of my three new little friends!
