Peters family | Oungre family photography

This Oungre family session was so much fun!! I’ve really enjoyed getting to know their loving, sweet family. When this beautiful mother and her daughters came for an A Mother’s Love photo session in the spring there was talk of family photos. Years had passed since their last family photos were taken so it was an extra special occasion capturing memories for their family. It worked out on a gorgeous, summer evening! One of the cloudy, drizzly days that ended with beautiful sunshine and perfect lighting.

We had neat areas to explore on their property in the little town they live at and a farmyard nearby. There were old buildings and rustic vibes in abundance. A prairie look was the request as this couple both grew up in Ontario but now enjoy living on the southern Saskatchewan prairies. I thought it was really cute to hear the man that owns the grain truck is sure that his old truck has really gone up in value now! Too bad for him though there won’t be two cute girls included in the sale!! If there was a way to bottle up all the laughter and giggles the bottle would be bursting. I think the photos show what a happy, fun evening it was!!

Add a cowboy hat and kick things up a notch!

Megan in summer fields | Tribune area

Photographing this beauty in the summer fields was fabulous!! Megan is teaching kindergarten overseas so any chance to spend time with my beautiful friend while she was home for a summer break was a treat. It was lovely to have her in front of my camera again as we enjoyed these summer fields. Seeing the prairie landscape turn to blue and yellows as the crops bloom is gorgeous. The flax and canola fields are really pretty in the summer as they add color to the countryside. And there’s just a small window of opportunity to have backdrops like this as the crops ripen. So our timing worked out well as we had a beautiful, sunny-filled morning for the shoot. I’m glad as Megan is back to work thousands of miles away for her to have these photos as a reminder of home and the beauty of our southern Saskatchewan prairies!! There’s so many reasons that summer is an amazing season here!

Matt + Melissa | Oungre Park Wedding

Matt + Melissa’s Oungre Park wedding truly was a day filled with happiness and love!! From the first time I photographed them together it was easy to see how much they connected to and care about one another. Then taking their engagement photos at Oungre Park on the hottest day of last summer, there was much excitement to officially become husband and wife. As well as a family! Their wedding ceremony was very personalized and touching as Melissa started off reading a letter to Matt’s daughters. Finding her life partner includes a wonderful bonus of two beautiful girls and it’s sweet to see the way they adore their stepmom. With so much love shown to them too!

There was the perfect getting ready scenario with Melissa getting ready with the ladies and flower children at her Mom’s house and Matt with the groomsmen at the bride’s brother’s house which are on the same farm. An initial idea of a peacock wedding cake sparked the overall theme of their wedding day. Peacock feathers in the handmade bouquets, bridesmaid dresses, a hairpiece for the bride and the little girls couldn’t wait to get into their peacock-colored, poofy dresses. They floated around the rest of the day! It was cute to watch their reaction as the bride put on her beautiful, lace dress. On a hot, sunny 33 degrees Celsius summer day, the guys were happy that they chose to wear shorts and white shirts! Everyone did really well as it was a very hot day!! It was great that the day was planned with time between the dinner and program of their reception to head out for more photos around the park. Including the pups that are definitely part of their family too. Then headed back to celebrate and dance the evening away!

Matt + Melissa, we wish you years of happiness together. It was wonderful to capture your Oungre Park wedding and witness how happy and in love you two are! Congratulations on your marriage!!

Van Roon | Weyburn family photographer

This was a great summer session with a fun Weyburn family! I knew they wanted their photos this time near water but in a private location. A funny sidenote – prior to the shoot I was met at the door with a steak knife by the landowner at one of the locations I went to scout. If felt bad that my visit was startling and also didn’t realize I looked so scary! Anyhow it ended up that it was too muddy to get in to that spot and this couple found the perfect location for their family photos. It was a quiet, lush oasis!! Since the photoshoot was just after a rain the scenery was fresh and vibrant. Stunning surroundings to explore, be goofy and have fun on a gorgeous summer evening. These handsome boys are energetic and their smiles + laughter were adorable! It was fun to capture these memories early in the summer!!

Pink Peonies | From Our Backyard

There’s a favorite time of year in our backyard for me. When the peonies are blooming! There’s something about the pop of color of the pink peonies that brightens up our yard. It’s amazing how much these plants grow in a year from shoots coming out of the ground to the large bush they become as the blossoms start to form. I’m always excited to watch the progression! We have this beautiful pink variety and a white one with hints of pink.

For as hyped up as I get over my peonies, this year however was a letdown. It was a tough growing season!! Watering doesn’t seem to have the same effect as rain and it was so dry. There were about 5 nice blooms and within a day the strong winds nearly demolished them before I got to photograph them (besides on my phone). Last year’s peonies were abundant and lasted nicely. Even well enough to make a bouquet for my Mom. Most of these photos were taken on medium format film. Thanks to Canadian Film Lab for the scans!
