Thanks for stopping by!

I’ve always enjoyed quotes. They’ve inspired me, encouraged me and often evoked a particular emotion or feeling. I find beauty and intrigue in the simplicity of their ability to capture my attention in just a simple phrase. Quotes tell a story. They are a verbal or written snapshot of a specific moment of time that can’t be redone or duplicated and yet when quoted have the ability to bring about those same emotions as when it first took place.

Photography is a vessel that allows me the privilege of capturing the moments that tell your story, a history, a personal unique and individual time that can’t be repeated or reproduced. My hope is that the story told in your photographs will allow you in years from now to share the original feelings your special day evoked with a world that otherwise wouldn’t have been able to experience it, feelings of pure joy, excitement, anticipation, pleasure, friendship and of love.

There is a story waiting to be told between each set of quotations and since pictures speaks a thousand words... let's give the world your stories.

I hope you enjoy the blog and seeing my work in a little more detail!

It has been SUCH a joy getting to know and spend time with this beautiful family! It feels like so long ago now we were sitting downtown enjoying some drinks as we talked all about the details of their upcoming wedding. Oh how things have changed!

Being a mom is one of the greatest joys. I was beyond excited to head out for this mom and me mini – to capture their joy together. So often as a mom we are the ones behind the camera, capture the moments of our kids together, with our spouse or with others so to be able to capture these two together and really focus on mom and her quickly growing little man was such a delight.

I couldn’t have as for a more perfect morning or location to meet up with my brother and sister in law and their family for photos (which also included a cat, first for me, and some pups!) I’m pretty sure I’m going to have to steal (ahem.. borrow) this spot again … it’s beautiful!

I was loving the black and whites from this session, I don’t think I’ve ever done and all B&W post before! Love this family! Gav man was just learning to walk and wanted to be on the go, such a wonderful stage when you’re bent at 90 degrees walking them around on their adventures!

These two little guys had SO much spunk and personality. I loved hanging out with them and watching boys be boys as they took me on an adventure through their stompin ground.

 

It feels like just yesterday I’d purchased my new big girl camera and was squealing with delight at my upcoming wedding… their wedding. And now look, two kids later and i got to spend some time with them again 🙂

I was super excited to spend some more time with Adalyn and her family. She rocked her cake smash and I couldn’t wait to get out again with her mom and dad. It was a beautiful day and we couldn’t have asked for better weather!

It was one chilly morning when we’d decided to do these photos. Thankfully Heather knew of this little tropical oasis we could head to so we could all stay warm. I wasn’t too sure what to expect when she said she had an atrium we could use ( indoor locations on a holiday are a tough find) but this space worked out perfectly. These photos make me feel like we aren’t currently in January with snow!

 

When Jairo and Dianne asked me to do some family photos I was over the moon excited. We used to work together at Samaritans Purse and it had been years since I’d seen them and I couldn’t wait to catch up. All Dianne wanted was a beautiful winter setting and we got just that, the day was perfect!

It’s been a chilly one that’s for sure! Typical Calgary its a decent temperature and then bam freezing and then this weekend it’s going to be TWELVE degrees again??? Despite the recent cold that has settled in, this winter has been absolutely beautiful and I’ve so enjoyed braving the cold with so many wonderful families, and this one was a blast! There were some snowballs thrown and broken fence posts (Mom wanted to re create a photo from when they were younger and the post they were sitting on may have snapped…. I may have taken a little longer getting the shot as well so I could capture their reaction to it haha – don’t worry they were safe!)
