Michele, Gilles, and the Boys – Lethbridge Family Photos

Monday, July 4th, 2011

Last week I met up with Michele, Gilles, Andrew, and Matt, along with their dog Krystal, for some long overdue family photos! Michele said it’s been many years since they last had them done, and the boys are definitely at that stage where they are growing up fast (and will be moving out on their own soon), so it was a great time to capture who they are right now. They were all super easy to work with, and the only challenge came in getting Krystal’s attention; she’s deaf, so it took a lot of arm waving to get her to look the right way! (more…)

Baby Nate, a Crowsnest Pass portrait session

Monday, June 20th, 2011

A few weeks ago I headed to the Crowsnest Pass to welcome Mark and Sarah’s first baby, Nate, into the world with a family photo session getting everyone involved. Unfortunately it was raining that whole weekend so we weren’t able to make use of the gorgeous scenery around Sarah’s parents’ ranch, but they had a wonderful house in which we were able to stay warm. Nate is a super cute, easy going baby and it was fun to see his grandparents totally beaming over him. I hadn’t seen Mark and Sarah in quite a while so it was great to have some time to catch up. They are going to make awesome parents, and Nate is lucky to have such sweet grandparents! (more…)

Kayli’s graduation, Bow Island

Sunday, May 22nd, 2011

Kayli graduated high school in Bow Island this weekend and I joined her for a few hours to take photos of her in her dress with her family and her boyfriend Taylor. And what a dress! I might be biased because my favorite color is purple, but it was pretty awesome :)

It was so fun to do photos in a brand new place and I always love doing photos in small towns because you can find some great old buildings with lots of character. Almost all of the photos were taken right downtown! Kayli also found a great old farm house for us to use, and I’m thrilled she was so dedicated to the art… we had to carefully step over a LOT of cow poop to do photos in there! She was so fun and laid back, making my ideas super easy to pull off. Aside from the mosquitoes (and Taylor and Kayli having to constantly slap them off each other), we had a beautiful day and the rain held back just long enough. (more…)

Cassidy and Sonya, magazine featured

Saturday, April 16th, 2011


They even wrapped it nice :)

Earlier this month I was contacted by a medical company based out of Maryland to take some photographs for a feature they were doing in their annual report on one of their patient success stories. When I arrived for the session the next day, I was instantly aware that Cassidy and her mom Sonya were such genuinely nice, generous people. They were surprised to have received the phone call from the company for this story, so we joked that maybe it was all an elaborate April Fool’s joke ;)

I loved capturing the special relationship between Cassidy and her mom. There was so much love and connection between them. They are both amazing people and it was a pleasure to work with them. My contacts in the medical company were also a delight to work with and were so pleasant I even looked forward to their emails!

More photos of Cassidy and Sonya after the jump: (more…)

Andy and Shannon and a canoe, a Lethbridge family session

Monday, January 31st, 2011

I first met Andy in university, where we were both in the Fine Arts, back when he and Shannon were just getting married. They now have two healthy boys, the newest one of which was just added to the family a week earlier! We did some family photos before Finn decided we weren’t doing what he wanted (he is 2 years old, after all, and that’s just how things should be! :) ), so we shipped him out with his grandma and grandpa to focus on Hudson’s first photos.

Andy and Shannon have a gorgeous canoe that they dried off and brought into the house for photos. I have no idea how they fit it in, but I’m glad they did! Finn especially liked it when he came back for his photos, and I’m sure they had a hard time getting him out later in the day.

Congrats on your new addition to the family! (more…)

Doug and the family – Lethbridge family photos

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

I met Doug and Kristina last year (er, last last year!), and Kristina recently contacted me to do some family photos for them and their little cuties Mason and Jakob. Despite both the boys being sick or getting over flus, they were in such good spirits and so patient and easy to work with. It was definitely an easy session to come back from vacation to :) (more…)
