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 ...

Owin & Olivia | Denver Senior Sessions
"I don't know what my future holds, but I do know who holds my future." - Tim Tebow
There is something so neat about seeing these two grow up & now photographing their senior portraits. I am so incredibly proud of them, and had a great trip down to Denver to take their pictures.
I took the back seat, as they led me around the city to some of their favourite spots. I loved how their location choices reflected their personalities perfectly.
I definitely think senior sessions are worthwhile & something that needs to be encouraged more in our area. It is such an important time in our lives & having photographs from this period which ...

Coltyn & Erika | Nordegg Engagement Photographer
You are home.
I believe the most photogenic people are those who don't think they are. We had such a fun afternoon, Coltyn & Erika were troopers bearing the 100 mile an hour (well, maybe not quite) wind, sand in the eyes and colder weather! We then made our way down into a little area with a couple of waterfalls.... it was worth the adventure!
I seriously could have taken photos of these two all night, but unfortunately this time of year the sun is setting a bit too early!
I am now booking 2016 wedding consultations & my weekends are filling fast (especially with our own wedding!). Let me know if you are interested, I would love to ...

Young Love | A Styled Session
"What was old is new again; vintage romance gets a modern update for these young lovers. Sweet meets sexy with this Blush by Hayley Paige sheer lace crop top paired with a full tulle skirt from Delica Bridal, while he looks dapper in a crisp navy tuxedo from Moores.
Brz Photography captured the last light of an autumn day in Alberta to swathe the couple in a soft glow, which is reflected in the shimmering dusty rose drapery from Dazzle by Dawn. Lush greenery offsets accents of blush and marsala in the stunning floral pieces created by Flowers by Willows.
Finally, a milk and cookie bar designed by Confetti Sweets adds a whimsical touch that w ...

Devon & Shelby | Central Alberta Wedding Photographer
You are my happy place.
What a great wedding to end this year's wedding season, and I felt like this photo & her beautiful smile sums up the day ♡
Emotions ran high as Shelby was helped into her stunning dress & revealed herself to her father.
We then made our way to the church...where there was a wonderful vibe, as friends and family filled the gorgeous space in Lacombe, Alberta.
We were lucky enough to be able to get a few photos at the local corn maze and Shelby's grandparents farm.
The fall colours came alive for a little sunset session...
A fun filled dance began, and everyone was able to relax.
I was honoured to capture su ...

Courtney & Shorty | Central Alberta Wedding Photographer
All because two people fell in love.
Gosh! Although this wedding was a wee while ago (SORRY, I have been the worst blogger), it seems like yesterday...& going through these photos makes me melt all over again. I have been speaking with these two for quite a while now and was looking forward to their wedding all season. What a fun group of people!!
They decided to do a first look - it was beautiful. As Courtney waited in the woods, Shorty snuck up behind her blindfolded. The raw emotion to fallowed was unforgettable.
They are such a beautiful couple, both so excited to spend their lives together. The ceremony was in a beautiful spot do ...

Once in a Lifetime | Working in the Yukon
Blessed are the curious, for they shall have adventures.
Gosh, I have been wanting to blog about our adventure for a while now! What a crazy few weeks we had. Jim and I were asked to work for Yukon Stone Outfitters; and were super stoked to take the opportunity! Jim was guiding and I was cooking & helping wrangle.
It was almost an eerie feeling having the cub drop me off & fly away, being in the middle of nowhere by myself (...Jim was out hunting and met me later at camp).
It is such a beautiful place, and we were tucked away close to a stream and just up from a lake in the heart of the province. I found myself super busy between co ...
