This spring the University of Calgary asked me to take a couple of portraits for their U Magazine. They needed pictures for an article on alumna Erin Silsbe, a grad from their Masters of Environmental Design program. Erin is now a climate change negotiator for Environment Canada and was at the Copenhagen Climate Conference in December.
The following week I was lucky enough to photograph an alumni event they held in Ottawa coinciding with the CIS basketball championships. The U of C people were all really great, and I even got to take in a game. Thanks to everyone involved, I had a great time.

Emily has been working on a lot of knitting projects lately, including the beautiful poncho she's wearing here. I recently bought a cool reflector kit and wanted to try it out, so these two things, along with a suggestion from our friend Liz, came together in the portrait here.
