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

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

Kolt Timber – Wainwright Newborn Photography

As usual my session with the Nanias family for Kolt’s session was a favourite – and how could it not be with snuggles from this munchkin. It’s crazy to think how much this lil’ guy has grown since this session! ❤

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.

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.

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.
