The Holiday High Tea

The ladies (and one wee gentleman) of Saskatoon came together in the name of fashion, tea and fundraising earlier this month at The Holiday High Tea, hosted by Heather Fritz Photography and Lux Events. This season's tea was held at The Station Place in Saskatoon. Our High Tea theme was accessorized by hats, hats, and more hats! (and fascinators!) Final tally isn't in yet but thanks to a cash-match by Potash Corp, we raised into the thousands in food and cash for the Saskatoon Food Bank. It was a full house of food, fashion and fun...take a peak!Link

and so this is Fritzmas!

...my house is a disaster, I am about 45 blog posts behind, I'm chin deep in 2 big non-portrait (yet still photography related projects), I'm in agony as I am just getting my body back into shape and the fitness regime is kicking my butt, I still haven't found time to get my car fixed from my third~yes third~car accident (all NOT my fault-please don't text and drive) of the year.

....yeah but its all good.

Really good. This year our kids stayed healthy, we stayed married and I never got hurt no matter how many times the universe sent another vehicle hurtling towards mine.

I'm not trying to be irreverent when I say "Fritzmas" (maybe a little cute) but the fact is I don't really care what you are celebrating this year. I believe in family; the family you are born with and the family that you choose (and even the family that just stumbles into your life). At Christmas, I celebrate the people in my life, friends who are like family, clients who become friends, the family I was born and married into, the family I created (who hasn't let me sleep in in 9 years), and the family I chose 13 years ago when he bought me a snowball in Medicine Hat, Alberta.

Happy Holidays and thank you for being you!

Two Shoots, Two Babies, Twice the fun!

Meet the Flamen Family. I got to work with them twice in the past few months! In the Fall, they made the trek to Saskatoon and we played in the park. Once the snow flew, I headed down to Kindersley and we tumbled in the snow. Amazing how much the girls changed in just a few short weeks!

The Sasko Family

This is the Sasko family. Every last one of them is adorable and fun. Yeah, that's my job-rolling around in the grass with adorable and fun families. Life is good!

Heather Fritz Photography in Finelifestyles Magazine

Just over a year ago I started shooting freelance work for Fine Lifestyles Magazines. I've had the opportunity to photograph some amazing businesses and people for the magazine. I traveled to Los Angeles to photograph Shannon Tweed and her family in their home, I photographed Brett Wilson during his Saskatoon stop over for the 2011 Pitch Party and have been invited into the homes and business of many other exciting, successful and influential Saskatchewan-ers. It was kind of thrilling, then, to see my own business featured in this edition of the Lifestyles Magazine. I think writer, Karin Melberg Schwier captured the essence my business perfectly. If you have a difficult time reading the pages here on the blog, you can see the full magazine here. The article is on page 21.

This is one of my favourite Brett Wilson images...more to come in up-coming issues and blog posts!
