In the midst of Instagram and Pinterest perfection we somehow have this idea that everything should be beautiful. Families perched on a hill top with mountains in the background, perfectly styled wardrobes that coordinate with the long grasses surrounding them… you know, we’ve all seen and admired those images but while getting wrapped up in […]

I do love fall… the colours, the leaves, the crisp air, all of it but I have to admit, I was a bit excited when this mom asked for a more urban session in Calgary this fall.

Years ago (and when I say years I mean like 10 or so) I was asked to photograph a wedding. At the time I hadn’t even considered shooting weddings but the request that came through seemed so genuine and sweet I decided to do it. I did their engagement shoot and then the wedding. Fast […]

We were back in Ontario for a couple of weeks this summer and I was able to book a few sessions. This was one of them. Picture this… I drive out to a little community just outside of where I grew up. I’ve photographed this family in the past but it has been years and […]

So this little guy was just over a month old when we did this session. Not your typical newborn shoot but I don’t think any session should be typical. Every family is unique and your session should be too so this was just perfect. We baked muffins, played in the snow, created a little art […]

Seeing as this is the first post on my new site, I think I have a bit of explaining to do… So I sort of went AWOL many months ago. I was still shooting I just sort of took a break from blogging. Putting stuff out into the universe was starting to feel like a […]

I’ve been photographing this family since their first was born. Now a family of five, I got to meet little Alice Bird just weeks ago ♥️.

After a bit of a social media hiatus, I’m back! Hope everyone had a great holiday and I’m looking forward to getting 2018 started. I tried choosing just a few favourite images from the past year to post but had a hard time so here’s a few more than originally intended, along with a huge […]

When I first met this family they were a family of three (and one on the way). Then they welcomed a new sweetheart of a girl into their family and all of a sudden their baby became a big sister. I love watching families grow!   (I can’t help but think she was hoping for […]

COME ON now!
Let's be
PEN-PALS.
