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

Emma – Wainwright Graduation Photography

Emma and I share a very strong obsession with reality T.V. – and for that I think she’s an incredibly rad chick. Upon meeting we chatted about our love for Survivor (Starts again on Wednesday girl!) and I knew instantly that she’s in my good books! 2016-09-17_00132016-09-17_00142016-09-17_00172016-09-17_00152016-09-17_0016

Caitlin – Camrose Graduation Photography

I am so excited and so proud of my friend Caitlin for her Augustana University graduation! You rock girl!

I also can’t believe how much little Devon has grown up! She is such a sweet heart and so smart like her momma.

When Shawn met Tennille – Wainwright Wedding Photography

When Tennille and I met up for our first consult meeting I remember us chatting about how much we both hoped everything would be beautiful and green in time for the wedding. It was a winter meeting and all I could imagine was snow! As the months passed and May finally arrived, one day I looked outside and thought ‘What was I thinking! It’s going to be perfect!’

And it was! Everything about Tennille and Shawn’s wedding was beautiful and absolutely perfect. Not too hot, not too cold, not too sunny, not too rainy – and the best part of all – the day was filled with so much love.

Kongratulations Kelsey, Konrad & Kaycee on the announcement of sweet baby Kolt Nanias this afternoon!!!

It was an absolute wonderful and amazing day photographing the Nanias maternity session less than two weeks ago – and I am even more excited to meet Kolt later this week for his newborn photos!

Yes. They took me to see my all time favourite animal. Turns out I’m actually kind of afraid of them – but hey, Llama’s are rad.

Taryn – Neilburg Graduation Photography

Miss Taryn is one super cool girl. She has some many awesome hobbies – and she had great ideas of how to incorporate those hobbies into her graduation session.

And she’s absolutely stunning!

Shari and Bobby – Wainwright Engagement Photography

My beautiful friend Shari and I don’t get to see each other very often but when we do it’s always so wonderful. This past weekend I even got to sneak in an engagement session with her and her wonderful fiancé! It was a rainy and snowy day – and it was actually quite perfect!

Andrea and Danny – Wainwright Engagement Photography

One of the most exciting moments for me as a photographer is helping create ‘firsts.’ In this e-session I not only got to hang out with Andrea and Danny – but I also got to take their first ‘real’ family portrait! Isn’t Mr. Hunter handsome?!

Lukas and Mom – Mommy and Me Lifestyle Session – White Rock, BC

Last week I attended the Canada Photo Convention in Vancouver, BC. During the week I was inspired by so many amazing and talented photographers. The experience has opened my eyes and I am more excited to capture life’s special moments more than ever before. (If you’re a wedding photographer and have never attended you should absolutely check it out – the Wolfpack is an amazing family of photographers.)

With that being said… I was super lucky and got to visit one of my most dear friends and her little man in White Rock for a couple of days after the convention. It was perfect. These two are the best of friends and its spectacular to watch them hang out.
