Photographing Maegan and her three beautiful, blonde-haired daughters was lovely! They were just so sweet!! Seeing bonds like theirs is heartwarming and helped to block out the strong prairie wind. It was a bit tricky to get schedules to align with nice, fall weather but we lucked out with a sunny morning on a day that the girls were off school. They drove out to one of my favorite locations in the Tribune area. A rustic, abandoned farmyard that I especially like using in the fall. Sweet gals in golden surroundings!! They were wonderful and fun to photograph! Getting messages after sending their gallery that they are the most beautiful pictures they’ve ever had taken and that they were captured perfectly had me teary-eyed. I’m so glad that was the end result and am excited to share more now on here from their session!
This gorgeous evening at the ranch with Bill + Jayne was fantastic! They are wonderful people and truly so kind and thoughtful. Horses are majestic animals and I love when they are included in photo shoots. The interaction of horse and experienced rider is amazing to watch. This is how Bill enjoys to spend time, out horseback riding in the pasture. I was anticipating this photo shoot after a gift certificate was purchased for their husband + fathers birthday gift. A gift that is a wonderful keepsake! We had beautiful fall colors and much greener grass than typical with all the rain. Their ranch is such a pretty location. A tidy, well-taken care of yard with lots of nice trees and then the creek running through the pasture. No wonder they really enjoy spending time at home!! A little ride out into the pasture and being under the big prairie sky sure is peaceful. The photos of the creek crossing and reflections are some of my favorites! It was a great time at the ranch capturing this cowboy completely in his element!!

It was well thought out planning for this extended family photo session! On a weekend that their whole family who mostly live in Manitoba were together in Weyburn to attend a relative’s wedding. How perfect! The window between the ceremony and reception worked out well. It was a beautiful fall afternoon!! The colors were especially vibrant in the moments the sun came peeking out from the clouds. Having known some of their Wimmer relatives all my life, it was nice to make more connections and meet more of the family. Pretty sweet that another member will join their family soon too. We didn’t spend long as they needed to get back to the wedding but I’m glad they made time to have these special memories captured!!
It has been fun to get to know this family since meeting this beautiful lady a few years back when she took my DSLR Camera Course. I love to see that she still enjoys taking pictures!! And yes, she sure has darling daughters to photograph!
I’m adding in this silly one because it made me laugh. There was a cute, energetic little boy at the age that standing for portraits is the opposite of what he wanted to do. These kids are fortunate to have young hearted, fun and loving grandparents!!
Thank you for having me photograph your wonderful family!
Whenever there is the opportunity I love to photograph clients at home, on their own property. Spending time with this young, farming family was especially nice on their farm. It’s a place they love to be, spend time together and the children love being outside and part of what is going on around the farm too! The youngest one was pointing at the combine with a big smile. Their family has grown since the last time I photographed them here and they are a beautiful, farm-loving family!! The plan was to take family photos after harvest but the weather has not been helpful in that department this fall. We would still be waiting unfortunately. I was sure proud of this couple on yet another wet day to put any stress of this harvest season out of mind to have a nice time as a family around their yard. Being about to take a few photos in the standing crop was great too! It’s wonderful to see these adorable, happy kids being raised to enjoy the outdoors and learn about farming along with a whole lot of love!!
Zaniyah’s sweet words for the letter board at her 10 years old photos: There is sunshine in my soul! I am ten years old.
And a whole lot of sunshine there was on this beautiful evening spent by the river. It was a double digit birthday in the summer for this animal loving girl which meant a photo shoot of just her. I love that my sister has chosen certain ages that we capture her kids at. It’s hard to believe two of them have reached the 10 and up mark now! It was no surprise Zaniyah requested to have animals in her 10 years old photos. The gorgeous smiles tells how much joy that animals bring to this girl!!! She lights right up, from the core of her being! Our aunt + uncle have this adorable pup, Kona, and the horse of choice was Dancer. Zaniyah was brave with these beautiful, strong horses. A gentle touch to get the horse to do what she needed and was happily riding bareback. She was absolutely in her glory!! As was I capturing these happy moments. It was a perfect, summer evening drenched in sunshine!
