  • I specialise in lifestyle photography. Life is messy and grand, beautiful and challenging, and every one of those moments is precious. This is what I look for and what I photograph. This is what I want you to remember, when you look at your photographs years from now - how your heart was so big it felt like it would explode.

Yeah! winter family photos in Edmonton. Who knew we would have to wait so long for snow?

Jade requested 3 things for her photo session. One good family photo, one good photo of each of her children, and a head shot for her business work. Sweet little K was a little bit tough, but we got it! And not just one, but three family photos.

Got it! (And how gorgeous are her children!!)

And this was one of the funniest photos I have taken. Grandpa asked if he could get a photo alone, and Ivan leaned over and said “Ask him why he wants a picture of himself”. So, I did, and he replied “I need a good photo for my obituary.” As a reader of the obituaries, I completely understood. He’s not planning on going anywhere soon, but wants a good picture, just in case.

Jade, your family is so beautiful. Thank you for letting me do this for you!

BTW, if you need an accountant, Jade is great and deals with a lot of small businesses. I would be happy to pass her contact info onto you.

We have had the best fall . . . I am appreciating the lack of snow, and the warm weather.

However, this year I have several clients who specifically requested snow for their photos – of course the weather didn’t co-operate, until, eventually it did. We headed out to Borden Park, forgetting that with snow, comes the cold. This is what happened there.

Fortunately I had a back up plan! And this is what happened next.

Look at that smile!

Not quite snow, but still Christmas-y

L is at that stage when rocks are awesome, so we have some not-quite Christmas photos as well.

This is one of my favourites. Years from now, I hope this photo will remind L’s mama of the sweetness of his baby-head.

And one more of L, because he is so cute!
