When Kate met Cameron – Fairview Wedding Photography

I do not even know where to begin with this wedding. So simply put – It was an honour. An absolute honour!

I met Kate exactly ten years ago in our first week at Grant MacEwan. We took the design program together so it’s fair to say we spent many hours together enjoying kraft dinner straight from the pot, some cheap beer, MANY trips to Tim Hortons and an equal number of dance parties to some of our favourites (Hello Seattle basically played on repeat on our 15 minute drive to the school.)

Needless to say – I know this girl well and I could not have been more excited when she asked me to photograph such an important day. It was a perfect day filled with so much love, friendship and laughter. It’ll always be a day I look at and grin – and from this summer forward I have a whole new outlook on KFC – It’s no longer just a fast food restaurant. It’s Kate and Cameron’s favourite – AND it really just means ‘Kate found Cameron. (We can thank Kate’s dad for that one.)

I’m beyond happy for my dear friend and am so excited to be sharing these photos! I apologize in advance for the length of this post! Photo overload commence!

The Newton Family – Wainwright Lifestyle Photography

Paulette and I chatted for a few weeks as this session was coming up on the calendar about ‘dragging her boys out for photos.’ And we had a BLAST. I think the guys had a riot – they certainly had my face hurting with laughter! 2016-12-29_0005.jpg2016-12-29_0002.jpg2016-12-29_0003.jpg2016-12-29_0004.jpg2016-12-29_0006.jpg2016-12-29_0007.jpg2016-12-29_0001.jpgThanks Newton fam-jam!

The Watt Family – Wainwright Lifestyle Photography

It may not look like it was chilly from how tough this crew is – but this day was incredibly chilly, windy and it rained the entire day. We didn’t care though! 2016-12-28_00202016-12-28_00212016-12-28_00222016-12-28_00232016-12-28_0024

Owen – Wainwright Maternity & Newborn Photography

I’ve known little Owen’s daddy for many years through sports photography and I am so excited to now be photographing this sweet little one. If he’s anything like his dad, he is going to LOVE sports! 2016-09-17_00252016-09-17_00262016-09-17_00272016-09-17_00282016-09-17_00292016-09-17_00302016-09-17_00312016-09-17_00322016-09-17_0033

I absolutely love it when these girls call me for photos – they are so beautiful inside and out! This session was a special surprise for their dad’s birthday and it worked out quite perfectly.2016-09-17_00342016-09-17_00382016-09-17_00372016-09-17_00362016-09-17_00352016-09-17_00402016-09-17_0039

Kieran – Wainwright Graduation Photography

Catching up with Kieran and his mom for his graduation session back in June was an incredibly special experience. I remember Mr. K from his first years of school and seeing how proud his mom is of him and how excited he was to be finishing up those long years of school was a blast. Keep up all of the amazing work Mr. K! You rock! 2016-12-28_00162016-12-28_00152016-12-28_00172016-12-28_00182016-12-28_00192016-12-28_0014

Ryder & Jackson – THREE Years!

I can hardly believe how quickly the past three years have gone! Three years ago we welcomed Jackson and Ryder into the world – and I moved back to Wainwright! And now we are wishing these little men a very happy third birthday – and I am moving into my first house! Needless to say I have been furiously packing up boxes all day, however I felt a short break to blog the boys’ weekend long, stampede themed, birthday session was necessary! They had an absolute blast at the midway, the chucks and the parade!

Happy birthday to my favourite little men! It’s such a pleasure watching you grow up!2016-06-27_00012016-06-27_00022016-06-27_00032016-06-27_00042016-06-27_00062016-06-27_00072016-06-27_00082016-06-27_00092016-06-27_00102016-06-27_0011TeeTee is so proud! <3<3

When Ben met Nicole – Wainwright Wedding Photography


Nicole and Ben’s backyard wedding this past weekend made my heart so happy. This little family is so full of happiness, love and thankfulness for each other and they are all so welcoming! The entire day was completely relaxed and it was a pleasure to take part and watch the love for Nicole, Ben, Naomi and Malcolm pour out of each guest watching their intimate ceremony. ❤2016-06-22_00022016-06-22_00032016-06-22_00042016-06-22_00052016-06-22_00062016-06-22_00072016-06-22_00082016-06-22_00092016-06-22_00102016-06-22_00112016-06-22_00122016-06-22_00132016-06-22_00142016-06-22_00152016-06-22_00162016-06-22_00172016-06-22_00182016-06-22_00192016-06-22_0020Thanks for stopping by!
