Life is fleeting … Capture as many moments are you can!


Here we sit, just a hand full of days away from Christmas and the New Year.  Where did the time go? Where did 2015 go?  Every year I marvel in amazement how quickly the years seem to zip by.

I really do enjoy this time of year.  It’s full of celebration and merrymaking with the people we know and love.  We are surrounded by people and things that bring back our most cherished memories, as well as the joy and wonderment of first time experiences.

A few days ago, Elegant Images had the honor of joining the residents of Sunrise Encore in celebrating the beauty of the holidays at their amazing Christmas party.  Sunrise Encore is an independent & assisted living facility located in Olds, AB;  and you would never guess that this building is in its inaugural year of running after witnessing what the bustling staff pulled together for the evening’s event.   There was live entertainment in every dining hall complete with a pianist, two organ players, a harpist and a five string folk band.   Mr. and Mrs. Clause dropped in for a surprise visit with the residents and to have a few photos taken.  Then there was the fragrant, mouthwatering banquet that the kitchen staff meticulously prepared for each of the four dining halls. Each feast came complete with a variety of delectable holiday treats.

As I moseyed around the party enjoying the ambience, snapping a few pictures,  I stopped to speak with one “young at heart gentleman” who lives at Sunrise Encore.   He so eloquently put into words exactly what I was feeling when he said “Life is truly what you make of it! You can be angry about not getting the fancy new gadget or that your stock price fell yet again…Or you can be grateful for getting to enjoy another good meal or seeing someone’s beautiful smile one more time.”

From all of us here at Elegant Images, we would like to wish you a warm and beautiful Christmas holiday. We really do hope you find the time to slow down and enjoy and capture as many moments as you can this holiday season.

Ah Christmas! At this time of year the air seems filled with celebration and cheer! Businesses and houses adorned in pretty lights, little children bursting with excitement as they count down the days to Santa’s arrival, and everyone full of generosity and goodwill.

I absolutely love the holidays! But the part I love the most is watching friends and neighbors pull together in order to give back to their communities.  It’s enough to make me want to belt-out the lyrics to a Christmas song.


♪♪ And so I’m offering this simple phrase, To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it’s been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you!! ♪♪♪ … (singing just slightly off key to get the dogs going)

Last night Elegant Images was fortunate enough to be involved in another one of these spectacular charitable events. By teaming up with Mr. and Mrs. Claus, Legend K9 Training Academy, and over 65 kids, parents and pets we helped raise a whopping $330 for the newly formed fund called Carstairs Pet Relief.

CPR is the brain child of Kelsey Logan from Legend K9 Training Academy. Her goal in setting up the Carstairs Pet Relief fund is to help expand services in an around the community; for things like an off leash park, helping people in a financial pinch pay for boarding fees of a lost or missing pooch, and making spay and neuter clinics more affordable.

Kelsey has been working and training dogs for over 25 years. She is a huge advocate of praise positive reinforcement training practices and a big supporter of dog and child safety. Last night her skills were evident, as she helped us organize a few of our furry friends in front of the camera, and sweet talked the pups into showing us their “pretty ears” for some fantastic holiday shots!
