Shelby & Mike | Edmonton Engagement sessison

Ever feel torn between which you love more, a summer or autumn wedding? This couple is getting the best of both worlds! Next summer they will say “I do” at a University of Alberta wedding but in the mean time we celebrated their engagement with a rustic fall engagement photo shoot. These two love the outdoors and Mike proposed in the mountains so we went down into the middle of a colourful ravine so that their images could be full of rich natural elements!

These two are seriously so much fun to be around. Shelby’s smile and laugh is infectious and Mike has the type of personality that makes you feel calm and comfortable with in seconds of meeting him. I can’t wait to document their special day next summer.

Edmonton Fall Mini Session

This little Doll and her Momma came by today (PSL’s in hand!) for some fall fun! I love photographing this kid, she has so much personality and a mischievous little grin that reminds me of Finnegan. Typically fall ‘mini’ sessions are for outdoor family portraits but this year I wanted to start introducing a stylized version of these seasonal photo shoots. I may be a lifestyle photographer and lean heavily towards “photojournalistic” style but building sets is my favourite and now I have one more reason to buy more Autumn/Halloween decorations!!

Check out my Christmas mini sessions here. They sell out every year and are my favourite event of the year!!

Dan & Angela | Married!

Ok, I know I am seriously behind in blogging! But since giving birth to my sweet little daughter I have been finding it easier and easier to ditch the blogging in lieu of Baby snuggles (can you blame me?) But Dan & Angela’s wedding simply must be shared! It was so delightful in every way. Maybe I’m biased because of my personal style but the home made food and vintage country style was so warm and welcoming. Angela managed to pull off delicate styling with the rugged and rustic backdrop of the couples beloved farm home. After the wedding we snuck away to a private lagoon and waterfalls in Kamloops back country. The only thing more beautiful than this sight was this couple standing underneath it, so in LOVE.

Edmonton Christmas Mini sessions!

Halloween is over, November is here and it’s time to book your Christmas sessions! Last year my clients loved their holiday cards and I sent out a few of my own to friends and family and they were such a hit! Christmas is my favourite holiday so naturally Christmas sets are my favourite to build but this year I am twice as excited because I have something extra special in store!

The Tegler Youth centre gives kids a safe place to hang out, hearty after school meals, mentorship and uplifting recreational programming!  Together with Tegler I will be teaching an after school photography program that will give these kids the chance to learn a new skill, develop their passion and engage with caring volunteers. You can check out more information about Tegler and my campaign and contribute here: http://fnd.us/c/513f32/sh/a5Fn56
