Calgary photographer, Totem Photography, Glamour Sessions, Beauty, Portrait Sessions, Women portrait “Working with Claudia and Bobi wasn’t work at all, it was the greatest fun!  We laughed all day and I even felt like a model in a real professional photo shoot!  The confidence boost it has given me, right when I needed it, is a wonderful feeling.  I love the results.  My husband joined me for some couple shots later in the day and they turned out perfectly too.  Ask Claudia to photograph you, you will NOT regret it!” – Debbie
Calgary photographer, Totem Photography, Boudoir Sessions, Beauty, Portrait Sessions, Women portrait “I really enjoyed my boudoir shoot. I’m not going to lie- I was a little nervous – but having both you and Bobi there calmed my nerves. I loved my hair and makeup; it was exactly the look I was going for- relaxed and beachy! The photo shoot was fun and you worked with me to shoot photos that I was comfortable with. Thank you (and Bobi!) – I love the end result. It was a great gift for my husband-to-be the night before our wedding!” – Steph

Calgary photographer, Totem Photography, Family Sessions, Beauty, Portrait Sessions, Documentary photographer, Calgary family photos, Calgary lifestyle phorographer “We have had the pleasure of working with Claudia and Totem Photography many times over the past 5-6 years.  She has become a staple member of all of our family milestones as she has beautifully captured our engagement, wedding, maternity and newborn photos for both our children.  We continue to chose Claudia because she is such a joy to work with and takes the awkwardness out of having our photos done.  As I said, it’s like having another family member present.  Claudia always comes to the table with creative ideas, and works to know what we are hoping to achieve with our photos.  She encourages us to be ourselves in the photos and include artifacts (like dinosaurs) that are meaningful to us.  We cherish the photos that she has taken of our family and continue to display them around our home.  We have recommended Claudia to our family and friends on numerous occasions, and joke that it wouldn’t be a Weckman-Wedding without her there!” – Heather and Gary
Calgary photographer, Totem Photography, Glamour Sessions, Beauty, Portrait Sessions, Women portrait, HMUA headshots, Personal Branding photos, Make up artist headshots “Words cannot describe how unbelievably happy these photos made me feel! I must say, Claudia had to work hard to convince me to finally be in front of the camera and not behind the scenes like I usually am. After years of struggling with self worth and loss, Claudia reminded me of how beautiful and strong I am, she encouraged me and made me feel empowered! This wasn’t just a photo shoot, it was a reminder that no matter what life throws at you, sometimes it’s ok to step back and do something for yourself. I am so glad I had my headshots done with Totem Photography, I HIGHLY recommend them! Thank you, Claudia, for your patience and guidance! You are amazing!” – Bogdana

Over the last few months we have had several sessions with Claudia: family, maternity, birth and a newborn photo shoot. Claudia always has so many wonderful ideas and works to bring your vision to life, making every session an enjoyable experience. The only problem we seem to have is trying to choose which photos to display! What a wonderful gift, to have some very precious times in our life forever remembered.” – Christine and Mike

You get a makeover with Bobi, giggles, poses you never dreamed of… but best of all, you get amazing photos taken by the talented, inimitable Claudia! I loved the time spent with these lovely women who made me feel comfortable with almost nothing on. And that is a feat in itself. We rifled through my wardrobe, checked out my “props” and it was an afternoon of adventure and shenanigans. Thank you, Totem Photography, for making me feel sexy and special again. And I have the pictures to prove it!” – Gwen
