Maternity Marla

This gorgeous mom to be is expecting her fifth child in early January. Isn’t she stunning! We talked about her session for a while and she wanted to do something completely different. We had a lot of ideas, but mainly she wanted a totally unique photo session that completely reflected her . I think we totally delivered ūüôā I really feel that these images tell a story . It was just a fun creative session to be involved with.

The Hoogenberg Family

We always split our sessions every year between inside and out . One of my favourite traditions that mom does is the framed photograph of the year before. Each child holds a picture of themselves one year ago. That is going to make for some amazing memories to look back on one day! l will see you next year Hoogenberg family in the mountains. So looking forward to that!

Omer & Heather – Nov 4, 2017

As a photographer, I hold the belief that few things are more beautiful or striking than the golden hour and pure gold seemed to be streaming in through the trees during this intimate and stunning wedding. This was my shortest wedding of the year. I was only with Heather and Omer for two hours but that was all the time needed to see just how perfect these two are.

Their wedding took place at the beginning of the month as a fresh blanket of snow graced us with its presence here in Edmonton. Heather, who should have been wearing a super suit under her dress, braved the cold weather and snow-covered ground, hiking through it in her heels without complaint as I shivered in my winter coat and boots. I was in awe of her, her composure, and the natural warmth she emitted while around her friends and family. This was a small wedding. Friends and family sat at their tables at the venue while Heather and Omer said, “I do,” under a beautiful arch twinkling with lights. The ceremony was short, simple, and sweet–the love tangible. For me, this was the perfect introduction to the winter months. Heather and Omer, I wish you both endless joy. Congratulations.

Baby Cameron

One of the things I noticed most about this session was how sweet his sibling were on him. They clearly seem to be welcoming this little man with open arms.

This sweet little one made me work a bit for it! I would do it again though in a heartbeat. Welcome to the world Cameron! 3T9A99613T9A99733T9A99823T9A99923T9A00373T9A00283T9A00233T9A00443T9A00663T9A0074

Jones Sister Graduation Session

Picture this: it’s late October and the golden hour is upon you, the sun peeks through the nearly bare trees. It’s the perfect setting for any photography session, but add a few smoke grenades and two sisters who recently graduated, one from high school and one from university, and it’s almost magical if not a little creepy. I had a blast shooting celebrating with Mattia and Sabryn during this session. For two girls who love Halloween and each other, this session was perfect. Our session resulted in some beautiful, moody photographs, very different from my usual airy and bright signature, but I think the outcome was hauntingly beautiful.¬†Congratulations, girls, and happy Halloween to all of my clients!

The S Family

This sweet family and I bonded before we met . Their youngest son has autism and he is only a year younger then my son. They have a lot in common. Including a love of all things Charlie Brown.

We lucked out on weather on that mid October Sunday. There is so much love in this family . You can feel it. It was so wonderful to meet all of you. Hoping our littles can get together for a playdate! 3T9A93593T9A92103T9A9202

The Sebastian Family

The temperature on that cold October morning was just below freezing. I remember how fast we kept moving between shots and we wrapped the kiddos in blankets. These gorgeous colours are gone now so I am glad we got out there when we did!

I have photographed this sweet family for years now. They are always willing to just go with the flow. The kids were so good during this session we finished in record time.

Ryan & Robyn- September 30th

It’s rare that I get to photograph a wedding this time of year, and yet rich fall colours are probably one of my favourite things to capture on camera. For Robyn and Ryan’s wedding, mother nature gifted us with not only her vibrant colours but perfect fall weather, too. While rain was in the forecast, we were only met with a light sprinkle halfway through formals.

With 10 groomsmen, this wedding definitely had the biggest bridal party of the year; it was also one of the largest bridal parties I’ve ever shot in general. While a bridal party of 17 definitely made my job a little more challenging, it also brought about its own entertainment, with jokes constantly made at the groom’s expense, keeping the air light. However, everyone also pitched in to cater to Robyn, making sure that she was looked after and smiling. In the end, Robyn was honestly one of the calmest and sweetest brides I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with.

However, it was when I took Robyn and Ryan aside for formals, away from the rest of the bridal party, that I realized just how in love and romantic they are with each other. Watching Ryan watch Robyn could make anyone believe in love, and their’s is sincerely heartfelt. I’m not typically one to cry at weddings, but these two had me blinking away tears more than once on their day.

Congratulations, Robyn and Ryan.

Lloyd Family

I have been lucky enough to be a part of this families memories for years. This year we headed to Fort Edmonton Park on the busiest day of the year. There is so much of an opportunity there for variety.  Always a pleasure Lloyd family!
