I always write a “Year in Review” blog post on December 31, and could easily do it again this year, telling you all about the special couples and families that I met this year  – and yes, they definitely were special and amazing, and I’m so happy to have had the opportunity to meet and […]

Thomas planned the whole thing.  He would tell Erin that he had entered into a contest for a free photo session and won.  During the session he would propose.  Thomas really wanted to pop the question at Birchwood Trails, where they often walk their dog. He timed it perfectly.  I would send a “You Won!” email to him […]

Before this session, Shantelle sent me a link to her new release “Faster Now”.  A super fun, catchy and flirty song, so girly, I instantly loved it and started imagining a super feminine and fun shoot.  Then we met.  My gosh, this girl is a sweetheart!  We instantly hit it off and spent the day […]

I just love working with these guys.  This was our third photoshoot, and each time it gets better, and definitely more fun.  This was a quick shoot to accompany their second release from the new album.  The great people at Heritage Park, here in Fort McMurray, were so amazing to let us use this awesome […]

This session was shot on February 23, 2015, one day before her wedding in Mexico…BUT, the photos remained unedited and unseen until January of this year.  The intention was to surprise her new husband with an album on their first anniversary, and we just knew the secret would get out (ahem…she would totally spill it) […]

In a few years do you think Alex and Taylor will remember what they “got for Christmas” this year?  Probably not. I think they will remember how much fun they had at this session, though, with their dad and Sherry!  Oh my gosh, they laughed from the second we started, right to the end when […]

Oh my GOSH!  Perfection!  This Fort McMurray wintery day in this location with this absolutely adorable, gorgeous couple…who just happen to be my 2016 bride and groom! It was cold, but they toughed it out, even changing part way through and going jacket-less.  They kept each other warm cuddling and laughing in the most genuine […]

The second Ben stepped out of the truck, I knew I had met him before.  Turns out he stood in a very good (mutual) friend’s wedding many years ago in the Dominican Republic (we just HAD to figure it out).  I remember him being this super tall, soft hearted and gentle man. His lovely bride […]

A few things close to my heart…the arts, Fort McMurray and my friends and family.  This session is a tangled web of all these.  Trevor, the drummer is a life long friend (brother) and Danny, Mark and Donny are new friends that I’m so fortunate to have met through him.  Freedom’s Note is a Fort […]

Megan and Ian will be celebrating their last Christmas as a family of two this year, and they couldn’t be more excited!  Baby will be joining them in January.  Megan wondered (and kinda worried about) what to do for photos in winter, and announced when we arrived on location that she hates the cold…but she […]
