Shandell -- Calgary, Alberta Free Spirit Photographer

I believe that your job should always fuel the fire within your soul. I also believe that you cannot get too far in life all without the help of others; and over the course of the past 6 months, all of the incredibly ladies who have trusted me enough to capture their vulnerable wild heart have no idea how immensely they have aided in not only fanning that inspirational flame that has started to burn bright within, but also how they have aided me in sharing the message behind these sessions that I hold so close to my heart. Simply meeting and spending time with each unique and stunning individual is enough for my quiet heart, but actually getting to capture who they are right at this very moment in their life is something that I could never be able to thank them for--I leave these sessions more grateful & inspired that I could have ever hoped to be. kaihla_tonai_intimate_wedding_elopement_photographer_0013Shandell has such an easy-going and lighthearted spirit; I am so happy that she came out to spend time with us this past weekend. She wanted to do something to mark her 26th birthday, and I could not think of a more suitable way to capture the very essence of who she is as an individual. THANK YOU, Shandell, for trusting myself & Melanie with your session--you're beauty is sooo radiant, your laughter (& smile) is contagious, and your Free People wardrobe is killer ;) Happy late Birthday my friend!!
