Album orders November 12
Flat & Folded Cards November 30
Digital files on USB December 2
Wall Art Pieces and Canvases December 7

Your online gallery takes approximately one week to go live after your photo session, so please factor in that, enough time to select your photos, and shipping times (if applicable). The last day to have a session with prints possible before Christmas is December 3rd. Sessions are still available in December after that date for anyone who is not in a rush.

If you’d like to book a session, please email me at!

p.s. I will not be running mini-sessions this winter due to time constraints, but keep an eye open for one in spring. I’ll first announce them on my monthly newsletter so be sure to subscribe to get first choice of spots!

Autumn River Bottom Family Photos [Bobbi & Ryan]

November 24th, 2015

autumn river bottom family photos

I was so excited for Bobbi and Ryan when I learned they added a brand new baby boy, Camden, into their family! Bobbi is really going to have her work cut out for her in a household of four boys once they start getting older ;)

They came down for the Thanksgiving weekend with the cute blonde boys and we meet for autumn river bottom family photos by the Helen Schuler Nature Centre. Luckily the coulees and trees blocked the crazy wind from bothering us too much and the leaves still looked gorgeous down there! Camden is already very loved by his big brothers and I’m sure they will be eager to teach him how to climb on logs once he is big enough.

Pavan Park Fall Family Photos [Sandra & the boys]

Pavan Park fall family photos

I’ve danced with Sandra for many years now and loved having a chance to see her so happy with her two boys for their Pavan Park fall family photos. The last year has brought very unfortunate changes to their family as Sandra’s husband passed away earlier this year, but these photos were done in his memory to honor the connection they still have with him. They have always been a tightly knit family and continue to be one :)

They brought along their two sweet dogs Vadie and Dash, who were striking in their pink vests and had so much personality!

Pavan Park Autumn Couples Session [Mavis & Jack]

November 17th, 2015

Pavan Park autumn couples session

Mavis and Jack’s kids gifted them photos so they used the opportunity to have a Pavan Park autumn couples session before they head somewhere warmer for the winter. Even though they’ve been married for a while, their eyes still light up and huge smiles cover their faces when they look at each other. They are such a wonderful couple together, and such kind people.

We had a gorgeous day for photos down in the river bottom just as all the leaves started to change, and for once there wasn’t even a breeze! Mavis’s fun hair color was a perfect match for the autumn colors :)

Rural Alberta Extended Family Photos [Luke & Lammie]

November 12th, 2015

rural Alberta extended family photos

Before one of their children moved away, Luke and Lammie wanted to get the whole family together for a big summer portrait session. Their own farm made the perfect spot for their rural Alberta extended family photos. We had no shortage of locations with their beautiful garden rows, huge trees, and nearby fields… with just a few ant colonies to watch out for ;)

All of the siblings had so much fun goofing around together and after Lammie stuck her tongue out at Luke, you could tell where the kids get it from! The little kids were absolutely adorable and loved spending time at grandma and grandpa’s house for the afternoon.

Taber Newborn Baby Photos [Lucas]

November 10th, 2015

Taber newborn baby photos

I was so excited to hear that another of my past wedding couples recently welcomed a baby into the world! I drove out to Taber for newborn baby photos of Lucas with his mom and dad, who were a little sleepy from their constant wake ups but so happy to have their little boy home. Lucas is normally a heavy sleeper but was fascinated by getting to be a model and carefully watched us through the whole session. He was happiest when snuggled by mom or dad so we were able to get lots of great photos of them embracing him :)
