Tell us a little about YOU.
Hi! My name is Jody Ann and I live in Calgary, Alberta. I originally hail from the GTA in Ontario. I specialize in newborn, maternity and family photography. My husband and I have been married for 6 years, he is currently in University full time pursuing sports journalism and I’ve had fun teaching him photography tips and tricks this year when he’s out shooting for his articles. We have two gorgeous boys aged 4 and 2. They inspire me every single day! I just adore them. My goal this year is to come up with new fun ideas to photograph them and capture their personalities.

What is your background with photography?
I began my photography journey in high school but pursued my other passion, music, in College. I trained with Shania Twain’s vocal coach and performed as a singer/songwriter for a decade before deciding to take photography full time. It took me a few years to find my passion and niche in newborns and I feel truly privileged to have parents trusting me with their precious new life. I really don’t think there is any greater calling in this world than motherhood and family and I’m pretty blessed to get to capture those most special moments.

What are your FAVORITE things?
I have a lot of addictions..ahem…favorites! I love starbucks syrup creams (I don’t drink coffee) magazines (people style watch is the best!), tons and tons of makeup, lace anything, boots (I’m not sure how many pairs I own but I ask for them at every present giving situation) props, props and more props and I have to eat chocolate every single day.

What is your favorite tip for working with newborns?
When I was pregnant with my first, I came across a dvd called “the happiest baby on the block” The dr in it, swears by these “S” techniques like swaddling, shhhing and side lie…I applied them with my baby and they worked miracles so I learned quickly to apply the same techniques in my photography and I’ve been able to read pretty well now what baby needs what! I also love running my finger across baby’s eyebrows, either sideways or up and down depending on the baby…miracle worker.

  1. Oh, it is so nice to see our little Emerson featured on mozi magazine! Jody is a fantastic photographer and an amazing person to work with. She definitely knows the art of babies. We chose Jody because her work is creative and timeless. We felt very comfortable working with her – it was like getting together with a good friend – and as a result we ended up with a wonderful collection of photographs. Jody photographed both our maternity and newborn sessions and we can hardly wait for our milestone sessions!

  2. Jody Ann is a gem! She is so professional, talented, and friendly! She always demonstrates great customer service, she is a photographer who is really willing to go up and out of her way to help you achieve the shots you want. She listens tentatively to her clients and truly cares about them. Each newborn she handles is handled with such care. She is very professional, but so kind! Sometimes people can get caught up in their successes and lose their ability to understand people. Jody Ann is not one of these photographers. With the short time that you spend with Jody Ann on a shoot it’s amazing at how quickly you can bond with her. She becomes a friend! She is very involved in getting to know your family so that she can really capture those special moments.

    I would recommend her and I do..to everyone who is interested in obtaining newborn/maternity/or family shots! She is worth every penny.
