Crowsnest Pass Summer Family Portraits [Ava, Tennille & Jim]

Crowsnest Pass summer family portraits

Tennille and Jim met up with me just before their first anniversary to get some new Crowsnest Pass family portraits done with their cute daughter Ava and luckily the weather was much warmer than the day of their wedding, despite the fact the first snowfall of the season had just melted the day before!

Ava has grown up so much since I last photographed them and is already starting playschool… where has the time gone?? She enjoyed herself the most when she was playing peekaboo, hide and go seek, or being spun around, so every photo had to involve a game!

We first went for a little off road exploring to get gorgeous views of Crowsnest Mountain and the river, then headed to the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre to play hide and seek in the trees and rocks.


Elegant Crowsnest Pass Wedding [Jeff & Kayla]

Kayla & Jeff, elegant Crowsnest Pass wedding

Kayla and Jeff had a beautiful, elegant Crowsnest Pass wedding at the end of summer with so many well thought out details! The hints of pink, gold, and white throughout their day added perfect touches and I especially loved their matching balloons (a special thanks to the bridesmaids for inflating those before the ceremony!).

I love seeing how happy Kayla and Jeff are around each other and they were just as cuddly as at their winter engagement session, even though they didn’t need to keep each other warm this time!

They started their day with a ceremony at the Catholic Church in Blairmore and followed with a reception at the Coleman Sportsplex. They did a gorgeous job working their pink and gold colors into the decorations and candy/sundae bar, and you couldn’t recognize the venue as being a curling arena!

Congratulations, Kayla & Jeff!


Crowsnest Pass Mountain Maternity Session [Erika & Josh]

Crowsnest Pass winter maternity session

It is always so amazing watching the people I grew up with move through such huge milestones in their lives. Erika and Josh’s wedding was a big one for me, and now they have had their first baby! I am so happy and excited for them and it was obvious they are feeling those same things; they were radiating so much positivity at their Crowsnest Pass mountain maternity session. Even as we walked between locations, they couldn’t help but discuss big plans for their little girl (like how she totally needs a tree house to play with her dolls)!

I’m so excited to get to meet little Molly very soon!


Steve and Wendy | A Crowsnest Pass Wedding

Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

Steve and Wendy may not be from the Crowsnest Pass, but with it being one of their favorite vacation spots they knew they just had to get married there! They had their ceremony at the beautiful Crowsnest Mountain Resort in a small clearing behind the cabins that held gorgeous views of the mountains and big blue sky. It was so tranquil and intimate for their small wedding and it was such a beautiful day.

We spent the next few hours exploring Coleman for photos and I had so much fun! They required so little direction and were constantly breaking into fits of laughter with their friends. After being together for 8 years, Steve and Wendy still act like their love is brand new and it was absolutely joyous to be around them :)

Congratulations, Steve and Wendy! (more…)

Kirsten and Jaxon | Crowsnest Pass Family Photos

Friday, June 15th, 2012

I’ve known Kirsten for FOREVER (I even went to Disneyland with her when we were young!) and now she’s all grown up and has a baby! I came down to the Crowsnest Pass to photograph her little guy Jaxon, and since we had such beautiful weather we finished the session off with some family photos on the old Frank Road, bringing along her so-well-behaved fur baby Drake. Jaxon was super smiley and it was so great to be able to work with them. The Pass is such an epic place to take photos! :) (more…)

Josh and Erika, a Crowsnest Pass Wedding

Monday, July 11th, 2011

My favorite weddings are always when friends get married, and it means even more when I’ve known them since childhood. Though I didn’t really know Josh in high school, I’ve known Erika since grade 4, or maybe even grade 2! So, when people at the reception watching the slideshow laughed at her school photo where her hair was in a teased mullet, my laugh wasn’t so much of shock because I remember that photo :) I could probably dig up some other equally embarrassing ones out of my mom’s photos of my birthday parties, but I won’t!

Erika and Josh have been together for many years, and decided they wanted to take the time now to celebrate their relationship and bring all of their friends and family together. Though they’ve moved away from the Crowsnest Pass, they decided to have their wedding there. It was so great to be back with a bunch of school mates in the place where we grew up.

They had their wedding on top of the Pass Powderkeg ski hill, which luckily was finally free of snow (I knew a few people who referred to the Pass as “Snow Hell” this spring because the huge snow banks just wouldn’t melt). It was such a beautiful location overlooking the town and mountains, and they couldn’t have chosen a better spot.

I had so much fun hanging out with them for photos. Everyone was hilarious and constantly laughing. Erika and Josh were so crazy in love that I barely had to do anything to get those smiles out of them.

I’m so happy to have been a part of your day :) (more…)
