Megan + Cole :: Engagement

Megan + Cole

We got to do this twice, yep, two engagement sessions and each one was equally amazing!

Our first meet up was during their wedding consult where we popped out to the local (and oddly cool) Battle River Trestle for a mini e-session. They brought the country style and even two stepped in a field of wild flowers. It was magic, and so we booked the date and planned for their full engagement shoot.

On a late summer evening I drove out to meet Megan and Cole at the most perfect setting, their acreage, full of so many enchanting spaces, and their favorite animals. There is nothing more fitting for an engagment, or any session for that matter, than doing it at the family home.

We spent the evening with their many horses and dogs, sharing a moment with Megans pooch who has lived a long life, racing each other on their horses (we won’t share who won), and just relishing in their beautiful country life they have such a passion and love for, and of course the love they share between them.

I am beyond excited to get to witness their wedding vows, in that same gorgeous yard, surrounding by their favorite people and animals!

Now enjoy some sneaks of the future husband and wife!

Blake & Ashley :: Mini Engagement Session

Early this summer I met up with Blake and Ashley for a ‘mini’ engagement session. Often times I work with my couples to adjust a wedding package to perfectly suit their needs for their wedding day, but one of the things I like to keep is an engagement session. Engagement sessions are so important to get to know your photographer, how they work, how their communication is, so that when your big day comes you have an idea of what to expect (because expectations can be way off and lead to major stress if it doesn’t go how you thought it would).
For ALL of my couples, whether they are just inquiring or have booked, I offer a complimentary mini session, ten or so minutes, often done at the consult, so they can get an idea of, well everything I mentioned above… For Ashley and Blake we worked their package to include just the mini session and though it was a short time frame, we had laughter,seriousness and just an all around good time. Not to mention, we had the most gorgeous storm clouds, albeit they did come with a bit of light showers.
Here we are at the end of December and I am about to leave Olds, enroute for Wainwright, to capture their wedding tomorrow. I always feel so incredibly blessed to be a part of such an important day.
Happy pre-wedding day Ashley and Blake, see ya tomorrow!

Rian :: Alberta Birth Photography

Birth Photography :: Central Alberta

When a child is born it changes everyone around it. From adult to parent, parent to grandparent, roles change as our hearts grow larger to hold even more love in them.

Birth photography is some of the most meaningful, emotion filled, connection driven images I have ever taken, and there is no question that I love being given the opportunity to create these memories for families. They are not all to be shared, and some may choose to share none and just covet those moments themselves. The firsts, that we forget with all the hormones, and activity going on…I don’t remember if my babies were crying or content for the first probably 16 hours after delivery, but I wish I had a nice photo of myself, gleaming in joy, holding them close. Soothing and calming them as those mama instincts take over, or the moment a tear fell from dads eye as he saw his child for the first time, or held them. These are moments you might not even notice happening, but life is full of those. They are the times that count the most.

These are meant to tell the story of birth without words, to remind of the events leading up to, and after as a family grows by one more.

Rian’s Birth

Rian is the third child, and the third child of this sweet family that I had the honor of attending the birth of! It took him no time to arrive giving me only 20 minutes from arrival of myself to arrival of baby! Is Fast and Furious appropriate? I believe so! He was the stubborn baby, causing false labors, putting his mom under extra stress being breach for quite awhile till deciding to flip permanently. So it was not surprise to anyone that he came even faster than his two sisters when he felt the time was right.

Dana + James :: Wainwright Engagement Session

Last fall I met with Dana and James for their engagement session at a stunning old stone built barn south of Wainwright.  It was of course the late evening, but I still remember shooting longer and later than normal (aka it was pretty much dark out) as these two are so fun and cute together!! You can tell just the way they look at each other that nothing will stand in the way of the love they have for one another.

James keeps things lively for Dana with his sense of humor. He proposed in probably the most elaborate way I’ve heard of yet for my couples. It involved a saskquatch suit, some helpful accomplices, a trail cam video and of course a beautiful woman who said yes. I am sure Saturday will involve a lot of laughter and good stories about these two and their times spent together.

As it is just days before these two tie the knot and become Mr and Mrs I wanted to share a few of my favorites from their session. Of course I am late sharing but honestly I love putting these blogs together close to the wedding as it is nice to go back and reminisce on the fun times I spend with my couples. #excusesexcuses #betterlatethannever

I can’t wait for Saturday and I am hoping to get to see James’ proposal video… maybe even share it with y’all (wink wink D + J).

Nash :: At Home Newborn Session

Nash :: At Home Lifestyle Session

This guy, weighing in at a crushing 5 lb 5 oz, was already a pound heavier than he was just over a month prior at birth. Even with an earlier than expected arrival, and a grand entrance to Canada via private jet, Nash is thriving with his doting parents at the root of that.

I absolutely LOVE at home sessions, they seem to flow so much more naturally than any of my studio newborn sessions ever did (kudos to those amazing photographers who rock the studio sessions though!). With everything at the ready there is no need to worry about forgetting anything at home, and we can capture those real moments in your favorite chair snuggled up as you would if you were all alone, just you and babe, which was pretty much how Nashs session started.

I arrived to find Nash sleeping like a log on his daddys chest. His long arm reaching out and wrapping dad. Even with a few turns, and rolls, and re-positions he still slept…and slept.  Much to the amazement (and joy) of his mom and dad. A few tiny newborn wheeze/grunts sprinkled in his sleep were the best sounds to serenade me while I worked.

Nash, while small yet feisty, has huge hands and feet suggesting this guy is going to grow big, and strong. With the cutest round cheeks and his little dimple chin…I suspect the class of 2035 is going to have one handsome graduate! Until that time I can’t wait to watch you grow Nash!
