Chris & Emily | New Zealand Lifestyle Photographer

“Listen. A healthy relationship isn’t living vicariously through one and other. True love isn’t someone being there at your side every moment of every day, but being free, and encouraged, to pursue your own passions, and then sharing in the spoils of your triumphs together.” – Beau Taplin

I’ve been dreaming about doing a photo session on my in-laws place since I first started taking photos. It is one of the most incredible places. And what better couple to pose for these photos than my sister-in-law & her boyfriend!

Located on the South Island, their farm boasts gorgeous mountain views & lush pastures; but the views were nothing compared to these two gems & their wee fur baby!

If their smiles don’t make you smile, I’m not sure what will. Now we are just waiting for Chris to take a knee so we can officially call him family!! In all seriousness, I just love these two and wish we weren’t a world apart. Thank you for being such great sports & allowing me to photograph in one of my dream locations.

If you are interested in having me take your photos in New Zealand (or anywhere around the world), please don’t hesitate to contact me. I LOVE to travel & we will be returning to New Zealand every year!!

"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 ...
A Little Adventure | in the NWT
“The very basic core of a (wo)man's living spirit is (her) passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.” - Christopher McCandless What an amazing few weeks. We have been looking forward to this trip for almost a year now, it is crazy that it has now come and gone.... but what an unbelievable trip it was. I have heard Meg & Bailey (of Ram Head Outfitters) talk of their area for years now & although I have seen photos, they never really did the area justice. The open count ...
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 ...
