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 […]

Before the fire in Fort McMurray, these photos were added to this blog post but the words were not.  I can usually muster up a few words, but for a couple of days before the fire I couldn’t seem to get the thoughts out of my head and into this post. Now I know why… […]

It was just Charmaine and I standing in the sand on the beach.  The reception was over and Chance had ran back to the reception location to get something that Charmaine mentioned she had left behind.  She said “You know he’s not just like this because it’s our wedding day.  He’s like this all the […]

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 […]

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) […]

I did something I’ve never done, it was completely on a whim.  The thought literally came to me one minute before it was posted on Facebook, and the messages and comments began.  I asked for someone to be my boudoir model; someone who would be completely okay with their photos going public and being used […]

´╗┐Five days!  That’s all it took for Rhonda to plan this wedding!  She booked her decorator (Events with Vizability), her florist (Caribou Flowers & Gifts) and the venue (Shell Place at MacDonald Island) one weekend, and the wedding went ahead the very next weekend!  I actually met Rhonda and Chad for the first time the […]

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 […]
