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

MacDonald Sisters – Wainwright Family Photography

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

Mitchell – Wainwright Graduation Photography

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 – 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

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! ❤

Nanias Family – Wainwright Maternity Photography

Kongratulations Kelsey, Konrad & Kaycee on the announcement of sweet baby Kolt Nanias this afternoon!!!
(You guys see what I did there????)

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.

When Greg met Heidi – Bashaw Wedding Photography

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.

Gabe – Wainwright Graduation Portraits

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Gabe and his family many times over the years. His mom asked me about my interest in sports photography many years ago – and I can definitely thank her for helping push me in that direction. So needless to say it was quite different to be photographing Gabe in a suit rather than his soccer gear!

When Terry met Shawna – Wainwright Wedding Photography

I had the privilege of starting out the 2015 wedding season with one of the most relaxed and fun-loving couples I have met. Shawna and Terry were troopers and more than willing to hang out in the cold for their portrait session. It was a chilly day but the sun worked with us perfectly!

Rozie & Andrew – Chicago Engagement Photos

This lovely couple is getting married on Saturday! I couldn’t be more excited to head down to Chicago this weekend to see my family and watch these two tie the knot! I’m sure there are many fun times ahead.

It’s been quite some time since I did this ‘Beloved Session’ with my cousin Andrew & (soon-to-be cousin) Rozie but I can’t think of a better time to share more of their photos than a couple days before their wedding day! I can’t wait to see you two!!!
