Shelby & Rollie had a gorgeous and intimate wedding at North Glenmore Park, on a perfectly cloudy Sunday in May. This day was also extremely special as the focus of their ceremony was to celebrate the combining of their families and becoming one unit.

Congratulations to this amazing couple and family!

Today was Landon’s last day of U4 soccer and I’m really proud of him and how awesome he played all season. He was super pumped about his medal and cake pop he got after today’s final game!

That smile!

Levi continues to love bath time – if it’s just him in the bath, I get 10 minutes of peace. If Landon joins … things become a little crazier and the peace goes out the window (let’s be honest).

He was using his toy saw and hammer to turn me into a snow monster. I know, makes a lot of sense right?! Well Moms who have kids that watch Paw Patrol will completely understand …

My first day of summer was awesome! I had the amazing opportunity to participate in the Open Trunk YYC Workshop put on by the incredible Heather Johnston of Orange Trunk Vintage Styling & Rentals. I learned the ins and outs of putting together a successful styled shoot – the day was busy and full of so much information and it felt amazing to meet other wedding industry peers and network with new and old friends.

I was able to photograph many aspects of the event along with other photographers that attended. I’m so thrilled to share some of my images here with you! Please please please make sure to check out the fantastic list of local vendors (found at the bottom) that participated in the workshop and made the event such a great experience for everyone.

I photographed this lovely family when Juliet was just 5 months old. It was so awesome to see them all again and see how much their little one had changed! I love when I get to photograph the same families over and over, they quickly become friends instead of clients and it’s always an honour to continue documenting their changing lives.

It was a beautiful April morning for this session and you could see a hint of spring all over St. Patrick’s Island. I followed adorable Juliet everywhere and got some fun shots of her on the playground and running all over the place. Letting kids be kids is one of my favourite things to photograph. They’re all so different with how they play, interact, discover and express themselves.

Check out some images below from their time with me!

Allisa & Michael were married in stunning Canmore on a cold but gorgeous winter day in February. Their day had an incredibly relaxed feel from start to finish which made for such a smooth and enjoyable celebration. The love from their family and friends was amazingly apparent and present in all aspects of the day, something I never tire of witnessing. I always feel so honoured and grateful to be allowed in to these moments and be given the opportunity to document these important times in a couple’s journey.

I started the day shooting bridal preparations with Allisa and her girls at the lovely Blackstone Mountain Lodge. From there we moved to Quarry Lake Park for the couples first look (always a favourite!) and bridal party photos. We finished up at the rail bridge and it has to be said – this bridal party endured some cold and nasty winds to be able to get some beautiful mountain photos. What troopers, seriously. Finally, Allisa & Michael tied the knot at Stewart Creek and then mingled with their guests and moved into their reception to celebrate the night away.

Congratulations Allisa & Michael! Thank you for having me there to photograph your amazing day, I loved being a small part of it.

John James made his way into the world rather quickly. The midwives arrived just before me and when I walked into the house at 10:21, John was born at 10:26! He was clearly eager to meet his family.

I spent a couple hours post birth with this beautiful family and loved capturing many of John’s first moments.
