I will never forget the day this beauty contacted me, asking if I would be willing to document her journey.  I was in tears as I read her message about her mastectomy and her excitement to feel sexy again.  Then I met her.  Super sweet, happy and smiling.  I was completely inspired.  She allowed me to share the […]

I’m not going to lie…when Sam and Jake’s mom told me that this session would no longer be a family session as dad was not able to make it, I wondered what I was going to do boys ages 11 and 13 for a full session! These two studs killed it…I might have even gotten […]

If you ask Melonie how she would describe her wedding theme, she would tell you it was “Cinderella goes to the pub”. She struggled with where to hold the reception, having a strong desire to host a party where everyone would feel like celebrating without the feeling of formality.  She struggled with her dress – […]

Oh my gosh, I have so much to say about this wedding! First of all, I have to admit, I was nervous to shoot in Las Vegas with so many people in one little space.  Here, in Fort McMurray we enjoy a lot of space and rarely have to deal with strangers in our shots […]

In the middle of their family session early last Spring, Christie told me they had just gotten engaged. We shot just a couple “engagement” sort of photos. We met up again at Charity and Clayton’s Lac La Biche wedding this summer and made plans for a full Fall engagement session.  Attempt number one started out […]
