Matt & Chantelle – Sunrise Maternity Session
Matt & Chantelle are such a contagiously happy couple! I had such a great time shooting their sunrise maternity photo session. We wandered around Big Hill Springs Park just outside of Calgary, Alberta - even though we were in Canada it felt as if we were somewhere tropical with the beautiful aroma of humidity and a fresh water spring. Well.. until we got into the water, Chantelle braved ice cold water for a few shots and I know how painful it was as I had to join her. We sat on the shore trying to massage feeling back into our frozen off feet and she still had a smile on her face. Baby should be here any day now, all the best to you and ...
Olsen Family – Lifestyle Session Calgary
Carrie wanted to surprise her mom on her birthday with the thoughtful gift of a family lifestyle photo session. They showed up with two tandem bikes to ride at their session and we couldn't have been more thrilled! I'm pretty sure it's impossible to ride one without grinning ear to ear. They let us go for a bike ride after the session around Fish Creek Provincial Park, and it was a blast! We had such a great time with the Olsen family, thanks for letting us capture some moments with your family. And to everyone else, I highly recommend "riding a tandem bike" to your bucket list.

Ice Cream Cones and Yellow – Sherwood Park Pet Photography
What a fun summer night - bright colors, ice cream cones, sprinkles and oh ya... the cutest bullmastiff puppy ever - Meet Yellow! Aaron and Casey got a new puppy and decided to cherish the memories of how small she was with a pet family / lifestyle session. Since we shot this, Yellow isn't so small anymore and their family has grown by one to include Blue, an English Bulldog - congrats on the new puppy!

Davies Family – Edmonton Film Photography Session
The Davies family have a love for the art of film photography. They approached us to see if we would shoot their family session with a few film shots and the more we thought about it, we thought let's make the jump and shoot it all on film. We love shooting film, but have never shot an entire session on film before. As unnatural as it felt to leave all our digital photography gear at home, it was so refreshing to simplify our bag with a few rolls of film and a few old cameras. We photographed this session with a mix of 35mm, 120mm, and even a roll of expired film from 1974. It really brought me back to why I love to shoot film - it makes y ...
Cake in the Clouds – Sherwood Park Cake Smash Photography
Our little girl, Wren, turned one and we couldn't resist using a bird theme in her cake smash session. She loved eating the bird more than the cake and the clouds were almost as exciting as the taste of sugar! Happy birthday Wren - we love you so so much. Teresa from Teresa's Cakes in Sherwood Park, turned our cake vision into a beautiful masterpiece; thank you!

Lemmens Family – An old carnival family session – Fort Edmonton Park
What a fun night! We spent the warm summer evening with the Lemmens family at the Fort Edmonton Park Carnival. We were really hoping to go on the ferris wheel and take some great shots, but the little ones were too short to ride. :( Not to worry though; they got their fill of rides, prizes, and candy. Not to mention... GIANT lollipops!! What kid wouldn't want to come to a photo session when it's this much fun? Thanks for the great night Lemmens family! I truly got to feel like a little kid again being at the carnival. What a perfect family you have - glad we could capture some beautiful memories.
Baby D: A birth story – Sherwood Park Birth Photography
I got the opportunity to experience a birth from the outside... to not be the one in labour but rather with the exciting job of documenting the whole beautiful story through a mix of film and digital photography. I was a bit nervous heading there as I thought I would be quite faint watching the whole thing and it would be a good way to persuade me from not wanting anymore children... but quite the opposite happened - I loved it! I was so excited the whole time, as excited as if it was my child about to be born! I nearly cried when I heard that little baby cry. I was on edge the whole time, expecting the baby to arrive any second. At one p ...
Van Sylke Family – Edmonton Family Photographer
I got the pleasure of sharing in some family time with the Van Sylke family. We played, kicked the ball around, fished with sticks, soaked up that summer evening warmth, and oh yeah - I got to take photos. Their children are an absolute joy to be around and it was so great to capture some of their special moments together.

Levi – Nautical Newborn Session – Sherwood Park Newborn Photographer
I'm a proud Auntie!! The arrival of our first nephew has us elevated on a spoiling high! I never knew how hard it could be, to not buy every adorable piece of newborn boy clothing out there.
Levi's room was decorated with a whale theme long before he arrived. Didn't Jayme do a gorgeous job on Levi's room? She even handmade the most delicate rain mobile, which hangs over his crib. So when it came time for his newborn session I thought it would be awesome to go all out with a nautical theme. We got everyone to pitch in - my husband handcrafted a wooden whale for his wall, Grandpa made a boat, anchor, & fish, Grandma painted it all, an ...
