Oldman Watershed Council Farm to Table Tour

Last month I had the pleasure of being involved with the farm to table tour hosted by Lethbridge non-profit The Oldman Watershed Council. The free tour included lunch from The Penny Coffeehouse, a tour of a farm near Coaldale, and a photography lesson from myself. Even though it was cold, we all had a lot of fun!

The photo lesson centred around taking control of the settings on your DSLR or mirrorless camera and we started while on the drive to the farm (courtesy of a party bus from California Dream Limo). Once at the farm, the landowners gave us a detailed tour and explained the work that goes into the farm. We got to meet all the friendly animals who live there, the most friendly being an extroverted goat and a small orange kitten who joined us on the entire tour.

Thank you to everyone who came and braved the rain!

New York photography trip

This winter I was given an amazing opportunity to travel to New York with Renae Peterson from Beautiful Inside Academy and Susanne Richard from The Travel Agent Next Door for the mother-daughter bonding trip they had organized.

We set out with 7 mother/daughter pairs, one grandmother, and 5 solo travellers. I loved photographing this super fun trip!

Southern Alberta farm animals chicken photos

Last year I second shot a rural outdoor wedding with a friend and loved sneaking away between events to photograph all the critters who lived at the farm! Their large collection of chickens roamed around, keeping an eye on our doings, while the sweet horses watched from afar.

Frosty Lethbridge Landscape Photography [The West Side]

frosty Lethbridge landscape photography

I always joke that I only take photos with people (or animals!) in them, but I’m always jealous of all the amazing photos landscape photographers take by getting up before sunrise. I did not get up before sunrise, but I did get up early enough on one of our recent foggy days to actually catch the hoarfrost and fog! I set off bundled up to take some frosty Lethbridge landscape photography.

Quickly I learned that it was only foggy for several blocks around my house and everywhere else was bathed in winter sunlight. Luckily the frost still clung to the trees so I wasn’t left cursing being out in the cold for nothing!

Crowsnest Pass Landscapes

Tuesday, March 26th, 2013

Normally it takes a lot to convince me to do landscapes (photos are just so much more interesting with people or animals in them!) but when I last went location scouting in the Crowsnest Pass, the autumn colors were so beautiful that I just couldn’t keep my camera down! I went on a mini-hike and barely stopped taking photos along the way. All of the plants were so lush and colorful, and the hazy sky from the BC fires gave such a warm, gorgeous light.

Interested in prints of any of these? Send me a message! Later this year I am hoping to put together a special gallery of prints for sale, so keep an eye out :) (more…)

Wedding Planning: Location! | Personal Blog

Sunday, January 13th, 2013

It’s almost here! To count down to my OWN wedding, I’ll be making one blog post each month outlining all of the awesome things we picked out for our big day. We had set the date so far in the future from our engagement that at first it seemed forever away, so it’s hard to believe it’s almost here already. I have new found respect for all the brides I’ve worked with because planning a wedding is VERY HARD, and we even eliminated many of the steps that are involved!

Early on we knew we didn’t want to get married at home, and a beach was our top choice. In the end we chose Santa Monica, near the famous pier.

We’ll be having our intimate ceremony on the beach with dinner to follow on Ocean Avenue. By intimate, I mean 10 people including us :)

Getting married in California wouldn’t be complete without some Hollywood in the wedding, so it’s fitting that our officiant appeared in wedding scene in the Hangover!

In case you missed it, our engagement story is here.
