Fabulous Family Photography Session at Lois Hole Centennial Provincial Park

August 25, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

The past Saturday, my son, Cameron and I met one of my favourite families at Lois Hole Centennial Provincial Park for their yearly photos.  I have been photographing this family for over 13 years and have been fortunate enough to watch Marie and Dagen's girls grow into beautiful, very well mannered young ladies.  Every year Marie and I start planning for their next photo session immediately after the current one.  This year I went with all brand new poses - because well, this family makes posing so easy.  Every pose I give them, they make look amazing.  A few years ago now, their border collie, Ella joined the family and she too makes posing her so easy.  This year I could swear she knew exactly what we wanted her to do and did it perfectly.  The one photo of Marie with the two girls, Ella just decided to join in on -so instead of the three ladies, it became the four ladies!  

I have a personal project I want to work on in the near future and when I got the idea for it, Danika and Makena came immediately to mind.  I am hoping that they will be willing to help me with it - they have the dance background needed for the project and they are truly wonderful to work with.  Makena has already thought of a beautiful location for next year's photos and I am already brainstorming ideas for it.  

Thank you so much Marie and Dagen for allowing David and I to photograph your amazing family every year.  And, thank you so much to my oldest son, Cameron for helping me out so so much this summer while David has been unavailable.

Great Graduation Photograph with Isaiah and Family at St. Albert Botanical Gardens

August 16, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

This past Thursday, I headed out to meet Ronette, Don, Naomi and Isaiah at the Botanical Gardens in St. Albert.  For this session, I asked my oldest, Cameron to assist me.  He was fantastic at helping me with posing and location scouting.  Isaiah graduated grade twelve this June.  David and I got to meet Ronette, Don and their family when we photographed Naomi's graduation a couple years ago.  It was so great catching up with all of them.  Naomi is at the U of A now with Isaiah heading there in the fall.  Ronette prewarned me that Isaiah did not like having his photos taken, but I thought he did fantastic during the session.  He didn't complain once.  The weather was absolutely perfect for the session - a nice overcast sky with no rain in sight and the botanical gardens never disappoint.

Thank. you so much for thinking of us again for Isaiah's graduation.  We wish both Naomi and Isaiah much success with their studies at the U of A and hope that we get to see all of you again in the future.

Welcome to the World, baby Nikayla

August 09, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

This past Wednesday, my daughter (and that day, assistant), Grace and I welcomed Tapasya, Bobby, and their two daughters, Layana and newborn, Nikayla into the studio.  David and I have photographed this beautiful couple in the past - for their pregnancy photos before Layana was born, Tapasya's baby shower and Layana's newborn photos.  I remember Layana being a calm baby and perfect model and Nikayla was just as calm and perfect.  Layana seems like a great big sister always wanting to give her baby sister gentle kisses.  

This family is so photogenic and it is always hard picking out photos for the blog and sneak peeks.  For this session, I tried out some new poses and Grace and I made a new prop (the flower basket) just prior to the session.  

Thank you so much for continuing to think of us as your family grows!

Beautiful Backyard Wedding of Kim and Jeremy's

July 22, 2021  •  1 Comment

This past Saturday, Julie and I, (and, yes you read right), headed off to Kim and Jeremy's home to photograph Kim's getting ready photos.  Now, those familiar with us know that Julie is the amazing lady who runs our photo booth.  However, because David took a nasty 15 foot fall last Monday and will now be in the hospital for a wee bit, Julie stepped in to help.  And, I think Kim and Jeremy will agree, Julie was amazing and got some stunning shots.  Although it had poured as well as hailed that morning, the rest of the day was dry and perfect.

Kim looked absolutely beautiful with her hair and makeup done by Icon Hair and Body.  And I just want to add that she looked just as awesome at the end of the night - her makeup didn't smudge, run, etc - it was perfect from start to finish!  Both Julie and I oohed and awed over Kim's dress as well.  It was a Vera Wang from David's Bridal and was definitely stunning.  All the bridesmaids looked beautiful as well with their hair and makeup and dresses.  Their flowers were beautiful from Petals on the Trail.

After the getting ready shots, we all headed to meet the guys at Lion's Park in St. Albert for First Look and Formal photos.  Jeremy did a first look with their daughters, Austyn and Jayden first and then Kim did a first look with their son, Wyatt followed by her first look with Jeremy.  Kim also had another surprise up her sleeve (or in this case behind her back) as she presented Jeremy with a large can of Smirnoff Ice.   The look on Jeremy's face was absolutely priceless!  Jeremy looked handsome in his black pants from LeChateau and his suspenders and bow tie from Armonia.

Because of the smoke that was in the air from the BC forest fires, there was a haze that was perfect for photos and gave the park a surreal look.  We were joined at the park by Kim's brother, Trevor, with his two children who were their flower girl and ring bearer.  These two were the sweetest children and kept Julie and I laughing the entire day.

After the formals, we headed back to Kim and Jeremy's for their backyard ceremony and reception.  Kim's brother, Trevor was the officiant and performed a fabulous ceremony that started out with words from The Princess Bride movie.  

The ceremony was followed by family photos and then the dinner from Memphis Blues BBQ which everyone was raving about it was so good.  The cake and cupcakes were from Flirt Cupcakes and the sound system for the day was from Revolution Entertainment.  

Thank you so much, Kim and Jeremy for allowing us the privilege of photographing your engagement and wedding photos.  We truly enjoyed every minute of working with you!

Gorgeous Day For A Portrait Session with The Beautiful Crystal

June 24, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

Last Friday, David and I headed over to the St. Albert Botanic Gardens to meet up with our newest client, Crystal. Crystal is about to become a grandma and wanted some photos of herself before then.  Crystal was so easy going and so natural in front of the camera, she made our job so easy.  Both David and I felt like we had known her forever.  

It was a beautiful day for the session as well.  Crystal had just gotten a makeover and looked stunning, and the sun was shining, yet there was a bit of a breeze to keep it from being too hot.

There was a family visiting the gardens as well who watched us photographing Crystal for a bit and then asked Crystal if they could have their photo taken with her.  They asked if she was famous.  We could see why, she truly looked beautiful and posed like a professional model.

Thank you so much, Crystal for allowing us the honour of photographing you!
