I had the best day with these three on Thanksgiving Monday!  It was great to connect with Melissa again.  We go way back to a couple of very different lives in Fort McMurray, long before these sweet little munchkins were born!  Melissa is a busy mom to these two, a grandma to her daughter’s little […]

To say that I am thankful for these people would be an understatement.  I have been blessed with the best friends that a girl could ask for, most of whom have been my chosen family for at least a decade.  Dyan came into my life more than 10 years ago.  We’ve seen some happy times, […]

After a busy couple of months of officially making Edmonton our home, and taking possession of a new build in Chappelle Garden in the midst of a busy wedding season, I spent most of the month of August travelling.  First to North Carolina, spending some time in the mountains at the Parker Pfister Workshop.  To […]

This session was a Christmas gift that Ferne decided to save and use it to celebrate their 37 years of wedded bliss.  These two ooze energy, fun and laughter.  The secret to a happy marriage? I think it might be! Ferne came prepared with several outfit changes and a contagious smile.  Perry brought the laughs […]

Where to start… Anyone that knows me knows that Audrey has been a big part of my life since coming to Fort McMurray.  I was so fortunate to meet her on February 4, 2002 (yes, I remember the date, it’s our friendiversary!) when we started a new job together.  I arrived first and sat waiting […]

Shane booked me before the evacuation for an anniversary session for himself and his lovely wife, Yvonne.  He feared that the plan could not go ahead when life in Fort McMurray was so uncertain.  Also, he had hidden cash away to pay for their day and was certain Yvonne had caught him red handed while […]

It’s always so special to be invited back to shoot these happy times for these people that have become so close to my heart.  A beautiful Fort McMurray winter day was the scene of their gorgeous wedding, a true celebration of love and joy and happiness.  Just over two years later, on a beautiful winter […]

The last time I saw this family together, these two sweet boys were still in their mommy’s belly and Emma was excited for two babies to arrive.  Little Sierra wasn’t even a thought yet! Kelly and I went to school together back in Newfoundland and it seems we bump into each other often here in […]

They married in January on the coldest day of the year in Fort McMurray.  Needless to say there were not a lot of photos outside.  Melanie decided to put on the dress one more time so that she could enjoy a full bridal portrait session with Jonathon, on a warmer day and during an amazing […]

Sami said this baby is a miracle baby.  It was almost two years ago that Wayne was diagnosed with cancer, it was a scary time for the whole family, to say the least.  But.  He beat it, he’s healthy and now they are both excited to bring this little one into the world.  They are […]
