The Diegel Family – Stettler Lifestyle Photography

It’s been quite some time since my last blog post! I took a creative break from my camera and I’m so excited to be out capturing memories again. These gorgeous ladies were such a blast to work with and I am so thrilled to be sharing images again!

I am now based out of Stettler, AB and am keen to start booking more lifestyle sessions in the area. I specialize in families, couples, engagements and newborns.

Thank you so much to the Diegel ladies for this awesome session! You ladies are so beautiful both inside and out! 2019-07-03_00022019-07-03_00032019-07-03_00042019-07-03_00052019-07-03_0001

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

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.

2015 – Year in Review

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!

When Daryl met Caitlyn – Wainwright Wedding Photography

After I photographed Caitlyn and Daryl for their engagement session last fall I was more than a little bit excited for their wedding day. These two create a quiet and calming emotion when they are together. They are both so kind hearted and easy to work with. It was such a pleasure being part of their day. ❤

The LaVallee Family – Wainwright Family Photography

It had been a few years since I did any sessions out at the trestle and I have completely fallen in love with how beautiful it is out there all over again. Hanging out with the LaVallee crew on a Sunday evening was the perfect way to finish of a weekend – and the kids were SO cute!

The Shaw Family – Wainwright Family Photography

The Shaw family provided many many laughs and many smiles during their evening session a few weeks ago. I still giggle while looking at the photos of Austin and Mason falling out of a barn window!

(No worries! Nobody was hurt!! Just our faces hurt from the laughter!)

Haley – Wainwright Graduation Photography

Haley’s graduation session was on one of the most beautiful nights this summer! There were beautiful skies every direction we turned and she and her sister have such gorgeous smiles! It was so much fun hanging out with these two beauties! 2015-10-07_0030 2015-10-07_0031 2015-10-07_0032 2015-10-07_0033 2015-10-07_0034 2015-10-07_0035 2015-10-07_0036 2015-10-07_0037 2015-10-07_0038
