A Dream Family | Sturgeon County Photographer

By on October 7th, 2015

I absolutely love maternity sessions, but when the momma is a close friend it makes it all the more fun.  This is R.  She has graced my page many times before Here, Here and Here.  Not only is she beautiful she is also a great mom.  This is R’s dream family and I am so happy I can be the one to capture all her exciting memories.  I love this lady to bits.  I can wait to meet your new little man.

Worlds Most Understanding Family| Extended Family Session | Stony Plain Photographer

By on September 21st, 2015

I am not gonna lie when I say this poor family!  Our first attempt at a session was going great until a HUGE rain storm moved in.  I normally don’t mind shooting in some rain, but this storm was a down pour.  We tried waiting it out with no success.  We had no choice but to rebook.  Two months later the day arrived and I was totally prepared, or so I though.  To my dismay and embarrassment I did something that would top every photographers worst nightmare… I forgot my camera at home.  Oh boy…. I headed home and got my camera and did the best I could… lucky for me this family was extremely patient and understanding.  Thank you guys for not firing me on the spot!  I enjoyed our short time together.

Edmontonian Family Magazine Edition | Edmonton Family Photography

By on September 21st, 2015

I was on FB recently and I came across a post for a referral for a family looking for a photographer who was available during a specific time period to capture a family photo for a  upcoming article on them as a Edmontonian family in business.  Judging by the amount of qualified photographers who could also accommodate this family I wasn’t sure what my chances would be.  I received a call from the mom a few days later!  We set up our time and talked about the wanted outcome.  I was so excited to work with this family!  As soon as the Fall Edition is release I will Post a link here!

A New Baby Brother…| Chilliwack | Sturgeon County Photographer

By on July 31st, 2015

On my recent holidays I was able to squeeze in a last minute “Fresh Session“.  This little munchkin was awake most of the session and it was apparent he has an incredible appetite and his mom and dad are in for some added expenses to their grocery bill when this little guy gets older.  Even though he was awake most of the session I assured mom and dad It only takes a few seconds of sleeping for me to capture this sweet little baby boy.  This little guy also has a sweet little sister who clearly adores him, she is learning the ropes of being a big sister… her concern over him crying is so caring and so  sweet.

To book your “Fresh Session” Please email me at [email protected]
