Happy Mother’s Day 2019

We’ve circled through another calendar year and as always I really enjoy compiling these special, sweet photos from throughout the past 12 months in honor of today’s holiday to celebrate these amazing ladies.  Mothers with the ones they adore most and receive so much love from.  It’s special to witness and capture these beautiful, joyful moments!!  They are cherished memories.  I’ll be posting this year’s A Mother’s Love portrait session here soon!

Much appreciation to you all and I hope you have a wonderful, love-filled day that makes you feel extra special!

Happy Mother

Big Hill Springs | Pearman Extended Family

A milestone birthday is an excellent reason to get the family together.  When the celebration weekend also includes extended family photos at Big Hill Springs Park…well, that really is super!!  Fortunate for me, I was the one they chose to photograph their wonderful family!  It was great to get to know them and we enjoyed our time out west too.

A change of plans came days prior to the shoot with much of their family needing to travel to England.  Which meant changing the location from the parent’s home further north in Alberta to a location around Calgary.  The first spot that came to mind was a park I used to photograph at starting my business in Alberta.  Big Hill Springs worked great!!  The water was flowing and we had a couple waterfalls for backdrops.  Thankfully it wasn’t too muddy and we had fun getting to know a new family in these pretty surroundings.  They enjoy to spend time outside, have a great sense of humor and it was entertaining watching them tease and joke with one another.  Their sweet crew of kids did amazing on a cool, early spring afternoon.  They were cute little explorers!  Happy to find sticks and play by the stream.

Thank you to the Pearman extended family for all your efforts to make this session fun and enjoyable!  Being with you all that day energized me and I didn’t want to pack away my camera at the end.  Enjoy the many memories, thank you all so much!!

Also thank you to my husband for being my favorite guy to have along at photo shoots, the timing worked well that he could be away from work.

At-Home Session: Kilberg boys | Weyburn

Aren’t these brothers adorable?!  It’s not often I photograph a wee, new baby.  When I do it’s an at-home session.  It feels right photographing this stage of life in my client’s home where they enjoy to be and when it’s a familiar space for their family.  This handsome dark-haired baby boy was about a month old.  He is darling!  Content, sweet and cuddly.  With a lively brother a couple years older.  He gives the baby cuddles then in true toddler fashion is off to do something else but kept circling back.  Since he was little he’s been one of the most expressive kids I know.  So fun and cute!!  We’re sure happy for our friends’ growing family and these boys to have a brother.  I need to stop by for playtime (we can blow bubbles outside now!) and a baby cuddle again soon!!

Majority of their session was shot on medium-format film as I wanted to try these film stocks in an indoor setting.

Sunrise Beach Wedding | Spetses, Greece

Next up from the film wedding photography workshop I attended in Spetses, Greece last spring is a dreamy sunrise beach wedding.  I love mornings and getting up early to hop in a taxi to go the beach for this gorgeous shoot was energizing!  Although we did stay in a very amazing, luxury hotel which made me want to enjoy the nice room while I was there too.  The light at this time of day is majestic.  It added to the warmth of this couple’s love.  They are such a sweet couple and it was wonderful to capture their adoration for one another.  Every detail for this wedding blended beautifully to the seaside location.  It truly was as dreamy as it looks!!  An all-around amazing seaside celebration with the Mediterranean as our backdrop in the morning light!

Spetses Villa Wedding | Greece Wedding

A year ago I was packing my bags and making final preparations to head off to Europe for a film photography workshop in Greece.  Film photography has piqued my interest for a few years now so it was an incredible opportunity to learn, shoot film, make new photographer friends and explore a new part of the world for me.  This villa wedding was the first shoot at the Phos Workshop and it was amazing!

There was a creative, fabulous team of vendors that worked together and pulled off this gorgeous wedding shoot.  An intimate ceremony space was created inside the historic stone villa followed by an outdoor reception in the gardens.  It’s the kind of place that leaves one wishing to spend more than a few hours in the pretty surroundings.  There were so many beautiful details and the florals and stationery were perfectly suited to the setting.  The gorgeous couple looked fabulous and I especially love the photo of them in front of the vine rimmed doorway!
