Even now, two weeks after these two got married out in the moody mountains of Canmore, I still cannot believe that we didn't once get rained on throughout their entire day. With a forecast certain of only rain, we experienced fog, sunshine, and cloudiness; everything but. I could not have asked for a more perfect way to kick of the 2018 wedding season than with Jenelle and Justin out in Canmore; thank you both so so much for allowing me to be a part of your wonderful mountain wedding.Read More
Continuously baffled at how in-sync the Universe and I are lately; week after week I am BLOWN away by the people that I get to work alongside of and photograph. Kat + Preston are right up there filed under "my people". I had the most incredible time photographing them while they were visiting friends in Calgary this past weekend, and I feel like it's inevitable that we'll get to cross paths again very soon!
One really cool thing about photographing in the Rockies, is that there are times where I get to meet people who are experiencing the gigantic presence of our mountains for the very first time in their lives; and although I can't remember my first experience with the Rockies (I've seen them for as long as I can remember), getting to experience their newness, mammoth, wise, and strong presence through the eyes of someone seeing them for the first time has to feel just as incredible.Read More
When it came to meal prepping for a full month, I really wasn't sure how this would turn out, if I would make the right quantities, or if we would still be wanting to each the same 5-7 meals by the end of the month, but you don't know until you try right?Read More
One of my very favourite things about spending time with a new couple during their engagement session, is that I gradually see more into who they are the more we get to spend time together; with patience and an open-heart, we get to see more and more of what makes someone, someone, and I'm so thankful for that.Read More
The more you scroll through Selina + Hayden's engagement session, the more you'll believe me when I say that I don't think I've ever laughed that hard, all the way throughout a session ever before. I had such a great time out in Kananaskis out with these two!!Read More
It's been weeks since we shot this elopement session out in Kananaskis, yet I'm still in awe of how it all came together; incredible things happen when you surround yourself with a crowd of wonderful individuals who commit, show up, and go above and beyond in what they set out to do. This session was one of two that Emily + I had put together for The Wild Kin workshop, and I'm still buzzing from the thrill of being out in Kananaskis, on the most incredible summers day, shooting these two babes amongst our workshop attendees.Read More
Picture a heritage home, just shy of 100 years old and full of the most incredible character and quirks that your mind can imagine; now, imagine that home surrounded by a 10 foot tall fence of the most fragrant purple lilacs; standing tall, yet swaying gently in a summer breeze. Can you feel the breeze? Hear the bumblebees and the birds as the sun starts it's descent? Welcome to Gloria + Graeme's engagement session; it was all of those things and more.
An cuddly in-home session with Carissa + John; couldn't have asked for a better space to photograph these two in, or a more perfect outdoor atmosphere. We were able to play around in doors, while the rain continued to pour outside.Read More
The first true taste of summertime came out to play during Hannah + Gabe's engagement session out in Kananaskis earlier this week. These two were so so much fun, and I'm so happy to have them as a part of my wedding family for this season.Read More
Have you ever watched two people really truly come to life--as their very best selves--when they are around each other? That's how I can best describe my time with Jen + Caryn; a love so very honest, and gentle, and limitless, and palpable, and true. Our evening together last Friday was so full, and free, and easy, in the best possible sense of the word.Read More
If you could dream up the perfect night to be out in the mountains shooting, last night with these two would have been exactly what you’d imagine: amazing tones, total calmness, summer-level warmth, nearby grazing deer, and everything else that is good in the worldRead More
Embracing our endless winter once again out in Kananaskis with Julia + Jarrett; soooo much goodness, laughter, hair blowing, and snow happened last night with these two.Read More
For everyone out there in Calgary eagerly awaiting winter, I'm convinced that now that Lindsay and Mike have had their engagement session, that spring will finally, really, truly, SPRING. The three of us pushed this session back a handful of times in the hopes that we'd be able to shoot in the warm beginnings of springtime, first dodging the non-existant autumn that we had earlier this year, then hiding out from a crazy winter storm and snow warning, and then finally just accepting the fact that we were destined to shoot this session in the wintertime, and landing on a beautiful, albeit STILL wintery, day yesterday out in Kananaskis.Read More
Life can get complicated, that's no surprise; but whenever things get to be overwhelming, I like to pause, take a breathe, and break things down into their simplest forms. One thing about life that I will forever cherish, is a simple love; that's what these two share, a love that--when it comes down to it--is simple, it's an easy love filled with showing up, a contagious light-heartedness, a gentle kindness and ease in the presence of one-another. I am so grateful that my work allows me to spend time in the company of a love like this.Read More
When the winter feels long and the days are passing slowly, an adorable home filled with adorable people + puppies is the perfect cure for re-discovering some inspiration. Thank you guys so much for allowing me into your space.Read More
Soooo these two have the best friends ever; they were gifted a photo session from two of their wonderful friends, Alannah + Connor (peep their engagement sessions photos that one of my friends took of them here). They live in Victoria, and when our timing didn't quite work out to photograph them while we were there visiting this past November, we made sure and squeezed in a session together while they were in Calgary over Christmas holidays.Read More
Stepping into 2017, at this time last year, I really had no idea whatsoever what was in store for me. To think back to the person that I was as this year of 2017 was just beginning, I can hardly recognize her; I was still pregnant and blissfully unaware of the darkness that was creeping in to swallow me whole. I was unsure of where we were going to be living by the time our rental lease was complete in two short months time.
