He Made is appearance in a blizzard, but warmed every heart who saw him. At just 12 days old on his LWP model debut, he refused to keep his eyes closed! Chubby cheeks and a crown full of hair have a way with my heart like nothing else on a baby. The fact that he is also my precious nephew had nothing to do with all this...I promise! Congrats Jayde and Dylan!
Family is everything. Knowing the intimate details of a journey is an incredible gift and privilege. I was beyond estatic when I heard my husbands "baby-est" sister and her new husband were expecting. I was a teary mess taking these photos as I witnessed the beautiful love between Jayde and Dylan, and the excitement and love they shared for their wee babe. Since Jayde's mom and I were the only two who knew that the wee bump was going to be a Prince, it was an extra special shoot, followed by a really fun gender reveal party. Family is everything.
This one was a hot one! Not only were Jim & Judy heating things up with their perfect love story...but Moose Jaw was a record breaking 42 degrees (Celsius) and the hottest place in CANADA to boot!
They met 16 years ago...on an airplane. Fate sat them next to each other, and Jim left his watch behind. Judy called him to give it back and bam! Perfect love!
If you scroll through my blog, you may find several shoots with the same names. That's because sometimes, I have the privilege of seeing families as they grow. This special Family is exactly one of those. From Engagement to this here shoot, I have seen all the special occasions. Thanks for trusting me - again- with your photos!
Energetic little boys are the BEST to photograph because almost every shot is an action shot! I never want my craft to evolve into perfectly posed photos like you get at Walmart. I love the challenge of capturing the flavour of what makes every family special - and this little shoot with the Olsen Family did just that for me. With a special little guy as the center of attention for turning ONE, we braved crazy winds and angry ducks to get some of the most memorable photos imaginable.
The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Regina had me come photograph their New Years Eve 2017 Gala. I am honored to be a preferred vendor with them, and this was an amazing opportunity. You can see a virtual tour of the room here. I was thoroughly impressed with how the Regina community turned up in full gala wardrobe - they even had our own real life Phantom make an appearance! The Bob Moyer Band provided excellent entertainment for our ballroom enthusiasts while The Chef and his team of staff served an exquisite five course meal! (This was the first time I've used so many different elements of cutlery and crockery in my life! I felt both overwhelmed and super fancy!) If you're in Regina, SK next NYE, this is something to check out!
The great thing about babies and kids is...they are just who they are and there's nothing anyone can do to stop them! If they don't want their photo taken, good luck getting one! Mums get creative with their bribes, I get more energetic in my distractions and the little ones get more determined in their version of chaos and how the shoot will actually go.
I LOVE these little clients the most - they keep me on my toes, keep my work real and remind me again of why I need to keep doing what I do.
Happy first birthday Miss L!
What could be more precious or honoring than a newborn shoot with the baby sister of a previous #lwpdebut baby? So grateful to have been in your home again Cody and Jenna! She is beautiful.
All love is beautiful, but sometimes I get to see love that is unique and so authentic, it takes my breath away. And even when it's a family event, I cannot put my camera away. This day is burned into my memory bank of most favourite weddings ever. Taking place in the little town of Trufant MI, it was a fairytale, and a significant reminder to me about what love is...that it should always maintain the tangible good and purity that brings two people together in a marriage.
So much love for you two crazy kids! Congratulations!
I've said it before, and I will say it again - the absolute BEST thing about what I do, is that I sometimes get to watch a family grow. Over the years, I have done Baby Bump, Newborn and now Baby E's first birthday cake smash! She is every bit the epitome of energy, fun, and mischief...although I think she was more interested in working on her drumming skills than getting into her cake!
I was lost in her giant blue eyes - I have no idea how her mom and dad..or anyone for that matter - can say no to her! Thank You Jenna and Cody for having me back!
Here are some of the highlights of my recent photography sessions.
