Meghan & Randy

June 14th, 2009

I started off the gorgeous weekend with an engagement session for a really fun couple from Fort McLeod, Meghan and Randy. These two were so sweet together and it was easy to see how well they compliment each other. I’d also like to point out how well coordinated they were! They were great sports to climb through all the prickly things we ventured through, and it all totally paid off. I got carried away and took way more photos than I normally do at a session… it’s their fault for being so cute!

Ashley & Eric

June 13th, 2009

Last Saturday the rain came pouring down, but Ashley and Eric were good sports and braved it with me for their wedding photos! This adorable young couple stayed positive through the whole day – being in love does that to you! – even though we were all soaked and chilly. Besides, rain is supposed to be good luck, and it made everything so green!

Their ceremony at E-Free was extra special because Eric’s dad performed the service! I was impressed he made it through without tears… he is a strong man :)

I also have to give kudos to their terrific wedding party who froze their butts off while we were taking photos! Eric’s brother was definitely the youngest groomsman I’ve ever photographed, and Ashley’s brother Chad and his fiancee Julie were also included, which is awesome because I’ll be seeing them again in August for their own wedding.

Ashley & Eric and their friends were so easy to work with, and in case I didn’t mention it before, cute cute cute! I’m so excited to work with the family again :D

The Cowie Family

June 9th, 2009

This last Sunday the rain stopped and the sky cleared up just in time for photos with the Cowies! In celebration of mom and dad’s 40th wedding anniversary, all of the “kids” got together for a special family session, and I had a great time shooting this awesome family!

Hands down, my favorite member of the family was Lola, who had a pink collar that perfectly matched her “mom’s” Converse shoes :)

Jen and Mark’s wedding

June 6th, 2009

Last weekend I visited the Crowsnest Pass for a very special wedding. Jen and Mark, high school sweethearts, finally tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in our hometown. I am so proud of Jen and Mark for getting to this point in their lives… Not many high school romances make it this far, and it makes me so happy to see theirs come all this way! I have known everyone in the bridal party since I was in grade 9 (and Maid of Honor, Tricia, since grade 6!) so it was so amazing to spend this important day with them all.

I hadn’t seen a few members of the bridal party since high school, so it was a bit of a shock to see how much everyone had changed! Okay, it hasn’t been that long since high school, but everyone is all grown up now! Except me, I never want to grow up ;) I can also confidently say Tricia doesn’t want to grow up either… so I guess we aren’t all that grown up after all. Furthermore, the reception was like a high school dance; Jen and Tricia were my usual dance escorts back in the day, and it was awesome to experience the old days again. (Remember the Venga Boys? I had entirely blocked that part of my life out until the reception… hehe)

I’ve gotten a little desensitized to wedding emotions after shooting so many, but I still get really emotional when it’s for friends. This was such an amazing day to be a part of, and for that I am very grateful. Jen and Mark, thank you for having me there and trusting me to do your photos :)

Mahlia

June 6th, 2009

This week I was able to photograph a portion of one of my favorite families again when Chrysline and Michael brought out little Mahlia for her 11 month photos; we had to do them a little before one year so they’d be ready for the big birthday party! Mahlia is another one of those adorable babies who I have seen through from maternity photos. :) It’s so awesome to see her almost standing on her own and having her personality really start to shine. She is such an easy going girl; even though she was still a little sick with a cold, she didn’t cry, and we even got quite a few smiles out of her!

Sophia is 2!

June 4th, 2009

I can’t believe Sophia is already two! I’ve had the fortune to photograph this little girl since she was only a baby bump. Actually, her maternity photos were done while I still worked at Sears! During that session I found out her mom Laura was from the Crowsnest Pass, where I am originally from, and though we had just missed each other in high school by about a year, we have been in touch ever since. I’ve been able to photograph little Sophia when she was teeny tiny, and last year when she turned one. You may have seen her feet throughout my website ;)

This last weekend while I was in the Pass to photograph some friends getting married (photos of that coming soon!), Laura brought Sophia out to the scenic Leitch Collieries for some photos to celebrate the momentous 2 year occasion. I wish Leitch Collieries was closer to Lethbridge… the best way I can describe the location for photos is EPIC! At least in the CNP, it’s only a five minute drive from my house :)

It took a lot of chasing to get most of these photos, but oh goodness she’s so cute!
