Tegan & Tianna | Drayton Valley Maternity Photographer
Home is wherever I'm with you.
It was such a breath of creative fresh air incorporating a bit from in the home into this lifestyle maternity session. It's always refreshing to stray from the norm, and the outcome made my heart full.
I'm so lucky having a loving, fun, and not to mention photogenic family to capture. These four are super excited for their next chapter, and I am fortunate enough to tell their story.
I had so much fun with this, and am very interested in doing similar sessions. If you or someone you know may be interested in a lifestyle session, send me a message - I would love to hear from you!
Oh, and Happy Easter!

Love is by nature fragile.
That's what makes true love so powerful.
It is that you've made a fragile thing unbreakable. - atticus
Have I mentioned that I have the most adventurous couples? ...and I LOVE it. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't SUPER corporative at our original location...so we hiked down to the bottom of a frozen waterfall instead!
These two were great. I am so thankful they trusted me to capture the bond they share & I am loving that I have an immediate connection with every client from my 2016 weddings. I know I say it too often, but people in love make my job so easy.
I still have a few weekends left this summer/fal ...

Brett & Dominique | Icefield Engagement
"Oh, the comfort. The inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person." - George Eliot
We braved the crazy weather & hiked to this unbelievable place. completely. worth. it.
This location. This couple. Unbelievable.
Dominique & Brett were the winners of the engagement session I gave away at Bridal Fantasy. After doing some research & agreeing upon this location, I could not wait to see the cave in person. Although the weather outside wasn't cooperative, inside it was unreal.
Upon getting to know them while we hiked through the snow & wind, I realized just how adorable they are. My favourite part of their story is when Bre ...

Vintage Winter Styled Shoot | Alberta Wedding Photographer
"Let's do what we love & do a lot of it." - Marc Jacobs
"A group of local vendors showcased their talents in this vintage-themed winter shoot. They chose a deep, vibrant color scheme to pop against the backdrop of a winter wonderland. The models dressed in vintage garb with accents of warm color to mimic the props. This same deep red was incorporated into the floral arrangements and table settings. The creatives behind the shoot set fire to the vintage inspiration, resulting in a unique flare. “We loved working together and could not be more pleased with how our first styled shoot together turned out,” said photographer Angela Brzus.

Blair & Shannon | Central Alberta Engagement Photographer
the magic that occurs
when you give a person
just enough comfort
to be themselves." - atticus
I am thrilled to have these two in my 2016 lineup; and spending time with them really reassured me how wonderful they are. Flowing seamlessly through poses and laughing with one and other, they made my job easy. They really make things look easy; but I have found my easiest sessions are with those who truly love one and other.
I had a look at where their wedding will be taking place; truly lovely. It all makes me very excited for this summer!
I still have a few weekends open! If you are interested in having me capture your ...

Jono & Sarah | Te Awa Vineyard Wedding
but leave her wild. - Atticus
To simply say "what a day" would be an understatement. Gorgeous people, weather, scenery & love.
Jono is one of Jim's best friends, and it has been amazing seeing him have a boy with & marry his love. Sarah's energy is contagious. The light in her eye & glimmer in her smile makes it easy to see how Jono fell so quickly for her.
I had such a blast going back through these photos & reliving the day…. and what a day it was! FULL of laughter and love. I enjoyed getting to know the bridesmaids a bit better prior to the wedding, and of course knowing the grooms party made things easier taking ...

Kyle & Priscilla | Central Alberta Engagement Photographer
It is amazing to be loved by a person who understands you. A person who acknowledges your flaws & loves your soul.
I kept hoping the weather would warm up for these two, but it didn't.... and it didn't really matter! They braved the cold like champs.
I loved watching them through the lens, as I would pose them they would eventually get closer and closer, then end in a laughing burst with each other. When I say it's couples like this that make my job easy, I mean it. I've often heard & believed the saying "When you find the one, you will know." & they are such a perfect example of this. Everyone is thrilled to have Pri in their li ...

Stay With Me | McGlynn Family
When I first booked this family session, I thought nothing of it. I had taken photos for them previously, and loved it. They were a young vibrant, beautiful family.
I knew Dale had been fighting cancer, and they had just welcomed a baby boy into the world. It is an honour to be asked to take photos at the best of times & I always try my best to capture my clients, but this was a bit different. Not only was it a huge undertaking, I had to go about it in a different manner. I was not trying to capture my client's best sides, in the best possible light, with an amazing background. Rather, I was capturing the raw emotion of a family losing a ...

CHEERS | to a new year.
When you do what you love with passion, success won't be far away.
What a year. If you would have asked me 10 years (or even 5 years) ago what I would be doing with my life, being a photographer would have never even CROSSED my mind.... and here I am. It is funny that the whole reason I started taking photos, to tell other's stories & provide everlasting proof of their bonds with one and other, keeps being reiterated to me. Personally, I have had a year of adventure, loss, hardships, joy & triumph. Everything that happens seems to affect the route of my photo business. I recently made photography my full time career, and I couldn't b ...

Clayton & Cheryl | Roundhouse Wedding Portraits
"Let someone love you just the way you are - as flawed as you might be, as unnatractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room." - the things we say
I was super nervous for this session... not because of the couple, but because it was mostly shot indoors & that is definitely not my forte. It was so nice to be able to take the session slow & have such an understandi ...
