Introducing Modern Albums

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012

I’m happy to announce I’ll be offering a new line of albums that are designed with portrait clients in mind! The new Modern Albums are a great way to combine images from your session in a gorgeous keepsake, without needing the budget that the archival wedding albums require (especially for those families who like having their photos done yearly!).

The Modern Albums are available in two sizes with either 10, 20, or 30 seamless spreads. The cover can either be a custom designed image wrap, or combine the custom design with a fabric or leather spine. With their thick pages and beautiful covers, they really make an impression.


This is the 8×12″ album with 10 spreads. The cover is a combination of image design with a chocolate brown leather spine. Photos do not do it justice! The 8×12″ albums start at $550.


This is the 5×7″ album with 10 spreads. The cover is a custom designed wrapped image. The 5×7″ albums start at $350.


Each album comes in one of these cute bags, available in one of three designs.

2012 Lethbridge Sun Times Best of the Best: 2nd Place!

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

I would like to send a huge thank you out to everyone who voted for me in the Lethbridge Sun Times Best of the Best Contest. This year I came in second place, woo hoo!

It means so much to me to place in the top three, especially when there are so many photographers in the city that you could choose from.

Thank you for all of the love and support!

Photoshop World 2011, Las Vegas

Monday, November 14th, 2011

It’s been a busy season so I’m two months behind on posting this, but better late than never, right?

I had a great time at Photoshop World again and learned many things which I have since forgotten (good thing I took notes!).

On my first day, I went on the Photo Safari with Joe McNally and Moose Peterson. I am lucky I signed up for it when I did because it was sold out several days later! This event is always popular because you get to spend an entire day shooting with these two very influential, talented photographers. They show you how they light scenes, interact with subjects, and see things the way they do. This year the field trip was to Bonnie Springs Ranch, which is a tourist attraction just half an hour outside of Las Vegas. The employees/actors who work at the ranch were our models, and they were great to work with. (more…)

Always the photographer, never the bride?

In June, my mom and I went to Disneyland (yes, again), and unfortunately Cameron wasn’t able to get the time off of work to come along with us. We spent my last day in town together, and we both took the day off of work. For him to get the day off, he said, he had to go into work earlier the next morning, so we had a quick goodbye while I was half asleep and when my parents later picked me up, it was only myself in the house.

Shortly after my mom and I arrived at the airport, we walked over to the ticketing area and I started to fill out the customs form before we got in line. My mom went, “Hey,” to me, and pointed behind me. This made me aware that there was someone there, so I apologized and inched over to give them space to get to the counter.

“No, look,” my mom said. I turned around and Cam was there!

My first reaction was to cry, and I thought he had come all that way just to say goodbye to me in a much more romantic way. Instead of saying anything, I just stared blankly at him because I was having trouble processing why he would do this or how he got there.

“I thought I should come along,” he said, and held up his passport and ticket, so I cried even harder (but in a happy way!).

The two of them had been plotting this for a long time. We had booked our flight when my mom was in town, and Cam had casually looked at my confirmation and rushed downstairs to book the seat next to us on his own computer.

There’s a little more to the story… (more…)

DrupalCon Chicago, Part III

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

By Thursday, I was definitely ready to go home even though I was enjoying myself so much (my own bed sounded way too good). However, I was ready to put in the final push to get through the last classes and learned all kinds of wonderful nerdy things about fonts and design. (more…)

DrupalCon Chicago, Part II

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

Wednesday at DrupalCon was another full day of learning, and I attended extremely diverse classes from styling maps to talking about internet marketing. I had a few “ah ha!” moments, which are always a treat at these events. (more…)
