Being that this guy is family – it’s pretty much a given for me to say I’ve known him his whole life. I’m pretty proud of this cousin of mine and everything he has accomplished. We are all looking forward to seeing what you do in the future Grey! You’re bound to do great things, pal! Keep up the fantastic work!
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!TeeTee is so proud! <3<3
Mitchell graduated from the High School this June and we celebrated with an early family session around town. I don’t believe Mitchell was too pleased with me when I told the fam-jam to give him a big bear hug – but he put up with it none-the-less 😉
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!
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.
Cece and Brandon won a session from the Sparkle and Spurs Bridal show earlier this year! It worked out perfectly as a combined maternity and engagement session!
ALSO! Congratulations to this lovely family on the arrival of handsome little Archer! ❤
Thanks for stopping by!

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.

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!
Thanks for stopping by!

2015 was a spectacular year with lots of beautiful weddings, adorable newborns, fun families and couples, brilliant graduates and everything in between. Thank you so much to all of my wonderful clients – you’ve made my dreams as a photographer come true! Thank you also to my amazing family for supporting me and believing that I could get it all done! It was a year for the record book!
I’m so excited for what 2016 will bring! I think it is going to be another busy busy year with wedding season already over half booked up with so many amazing couples!
Here’s a look-in at each of the milestones I had the opportunity to photograph this year!
The wedding of Heidi and Greg took me back to my hometown of Bashaw, AB! Being part of Heidi’s wedding day was beyond exciting for me as Heidi happens to be amoung the first people I met when I was born! We spent hours upon hours of our toddler life hanging out together and the opportunity to photograph such a magical day in Heidi’s life was spectacular.
The details of their day were fantastic and so well put together – including Heidi’s dress – which she made herself using her mom’s wedding dress! Can you say talented?! And then their was their amazing bridal party! They were a blast to hang out with (they made me feel like part of the family) and an absolute riot on the dance floor! ❤
This was my last wedding of the 2015 season and as I post this blog I am grinning from ear to ear thinking about what an amazing year of beautiful couples and great opportunities I was given. Thank you so much to each an every couple who had me capture these special moments for you.
