Melissa + Dallas :: Wedding

A sunny July morning the party was just about to get ramped up for these two crazy lovers at this Alberta prairie wedding!

After the typical morning getting ready at Luxe Hair Design, they were off to get ready with mimosas (and shots) in hand….wedding mornings can be stressful so a little relaxer is always a good thing! While the girls did their thing I headed over to visit the guys and true to fashion…they were late after a round of golf (seriously how do the groom and groomsmen get off with such easy breezy mornings, while the girls are often in full panic mode, and if not, they are ready to jump in it!).  But only minutes behind and as guys can, they were ready in a flash and it was back to the girls in just as quick. It was not long and we were all ceremony bound….

Melissa and Dallas were married in Wainwright at the Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church and left the church, married, and in true style in Len’s Party Bus….this may just be my new favorite way to get around! Melissa’s sweet as pie niece came along for the ride and she had a blast hanging with the crew, and out the window! We toured around the prairie with a stop at the local pub, and in the midst of the fun took some time to sneak the bride and groom photos in, of course, on the gorgeous patio at the Honeypot Eatery in Wainwright. It was time to part with Len, and arrive at the hall for the bridal parties grande entrance.

Off we went, well they did, as unfortunate luck left keys possibly locked in my vehicle, but tow truck to the rescue and we made it in time. The reception definitely did not allow for the party to die down, and on it went. Dances, speeches, food and POPCORN! Plus a stunning cake by one of Melissas coworkers, covered in succulents and fresh flowers…um YES, and it was delish too!

It was the perfect wedding for these two, so full of fun and laughter…just absolutely THEM!

Congratulations on your first anniversary Melissa and Dallas!

Sydney :: Ice Castle Grad Session

On what felt like the coldest day in January, just a few weeks before the ice castle was gone for another year, we made the trip to Edmonton for a winter grad session. Sydney’s teal blue dress was perfect against the whites and blues of the ice castle. Standing out just enough, but fitting in as if exactly designed for the backdrop. Many thanks to Casa De Flores and Cocoa Tree Bake Shop for the stunning flower crown and adorable cupcake, as well as Makeup by Ashleigh for the amazing make up to bring out Sydneys natural beauty.

Wind blown hair and sun streaked shots, this was an all around breath taking shoot….and literally breathtakingly COLD! The fellow tourists at the ice castle all shared their compliments and sympanthy for Sydney in her sleeveless dress, with just a thin blanket at times to keep her warm. There were comments about the ‘ice princesses’ and ‘Elsa’ overheard by the young children running through the tunnels of ice. But the overwhelming response was with how beautiful Sydney looked. I have the honor of knowing this girl well, and I will tell you that beauty runs as deep as the cold did that day!

hudson :: newborn

Dear Hudson, you are the cutest little freshie newborn….

With your little inherited scowl, that perfect tiny chin and your sweet little milk smiles.

It was a good two days of newborn sessions, with Hudson on day two. Both sessions were similar, with a doting sibling just excited for photos (LOVE IT!). Miss R was READY! She was telling everyone about ‘the lady’ (PS. I feel fancy being called a lady!) who was coming to do photos of her little brother.

She showed me her room, and made sure to have a little photo shoot of her own in her very pink room! Throughout the shoot she was here and there, changed outfits, colored a bit, played a bit, and was the typical 3 year old…busy! But regardless of her busy agenda, she made time to scoot in a few photos and honestly, she stole the show from her brother a few times…which is hard to do when there is a brand new baby in the room! Check out those adorable family shots with R!

Hudson was so good for us, with a few typical moments required as we all are aware of the three priorities of a newborn. Eat. Sleep. Poop. He covered about 2.5 of those in our short hour together, but regardless so many great images were captured!

Thank you Hudson and fam, for welcoming ‘the lady’ into your house to create sweet memories…I especially loved seeing all of your memories printed and on your walls!

bennett :: newborn

Welcome to the world Bennett!

I had the honor of at just 6 days old, photographing newborn Bennett and his family on one of my trips back to Wainwright. Big brother Macoy was eagerly waiting to introduce me to their shiny new addition. He was just as excited to show me his toys though, including his big boy room, and his own personal indoor hockey rink in the basement, complete with a ‘zamboni’!

At 8lbs 9oz, born on his due date and sweet as a button, Ben had me at hello…or maybe just his sweet little baby grunts. He has a darker complexion than his big bro, but they definitely are their parents children, both having strong features of each! His little monkey feet with long toes, and his perfect little chin. Sweet baby blues, and dark hair.

Bennett was a doll, just milk drunk and content as could be. And Macoy could have won an award for sweetest big brother, constantly sneaking a kiss here or there. Though he may have been loving the bribes that often (and are recommended) come along with toddlers and photoshoots!

When a newborn shoot goes this well, you know you have it good! He needed no milk breaks, put up with all the loving kisses and slept through the excited toddler!

Thank you Bennett and your family for inviting me into your home and letting me capture your newness!

heath :: newborn

Heath’s newborn shoot was my last session of 2016, literally the last day possible! And what a way to end my 2016!

At home, newborn sessions are my jam. They make my heart sing, when siblings are just chilling doing their thing, and occasionally pop over to check out what I am doing. When parents can just relax, and let things happen as they come and go during a session…that is when magic happens!

Heath has been blessed with a sweet little family, one older brother and a doting mom and dad.

We were waiting, anticipating those cute, tender kisses from his big brother….and nothing….until I put my camera down or turn my back…..2 year olds have spidey senses I tell ya!

So while the 2 yr old in Heaths life, did his own thing, as most 2 yr olds do, I was able to have Heath spend a little cuddle time with his favorite people anyways, mom and dad!

I love being able to capture moments that in some way shape or form ACTUALLY happen, like sitting on your bed just rocking your baby in your arms. Or nursing in your favorite cozy spot. These are the moments we forget. We don’t forget the big ones, like the first crawl, the first walk, the first food….but the simple everyday cuddles with your newborn, those should be cherished as well!
