She’s A Jewel! {Bow Island/Medicine Hat Newborn Photographer}

Posted on October 29, 2010

Do you remember seeing the beautiful Mommy and Daddy to Be from this session?  Well, I was so excited to finally meet the sweet baby girl that they were waiting for all that time!  She was SO relaxed and easy going, letting me wiggle her around, swing her into a snuggly slumber and take photos until my heart was content.  Mom was also relaxed and easy going, so it’s no wonder her little girl was a superstar during our photo session ;) .  Thank you Ellen and Todd for giving me the honor of preserving your memories of Jewel as a newborn… she really is precious.

Frog Races and Fuzzy Friends

Posted on October 29, 2010

So I’ve taken a LONG time deciding whether or not I should be using this blog to post my personal photos, experiences etc… and during this decision period, I haven’t been posting any.  It definitely takes a lot of extra time, but to be honest… I really miss doing it and celebrating the “little things” in our everyday lives that may be forgotten or overlooked in the long run. 

Therefore… I’m going to start once again.

 This particular set of pictures brings back so many memories for me… not only of the fun day we had racing frogs and catching caterpillars with my daughter and Mom, but memories of doing the very same things with my family years ago when my sister and I were kids too!  We would catch as many frogs as we could find, then line them up and race them to see whose would be the fastest!  So silly and fun… and I’m so glad that my girl gets to have the same experiences that we will remember forever.

Any Roughrider Fans Out There?! {Medicine Hat Wedding Photographer}

Posted on October 28, 2010

So… on pretty short notice, I agreed to second shoot an awesome wedding with Kristen in Medicine Hat back in September (if you check out her link, you’ll see her sneak peek from the same wedding… and you might see a few of my shots from the day there too :) ).  The ceremony and reception were held at Higdon Hall, and the decor that this couple arranged was just the coolest… from the drapes, lanterns, the Bride’s prized truck collection adorning the tables to the “buffet candy table” all in Roughrider green… it looked amazing in there!  Despite the extreme wind we had to venture out in for portraits, everything turned out really well and it was a wonderful day.  Thanks to Kristen for inviting me along, and thanks to Kristin and Derek, and their families for really making us feel welcome and sharing this awesome day with us!  Cheers!

Funky Kids Chillin’ Downtown {Medicine Hat Family Photographer}

Posted on October 25, 2010

I have had the pleasure of getting to know these three kids and their parents… and dog Lilo :) … over the last few years!  It all began with a fun photo session for the whole family…  I don’t remember ever laughing so much and so hard during a session… it felt as if I’d known them for years.  Then, when the dad of the house needed some headshots taken for his new  business, I had stitches from laughter once again!  They are a great family all around… easy going, fun and full of life!

So when they called and asked for a fun, funky session for the kids only this time… I was IN!  We had a great time wandering around downtown Medicine Hat getting some unique urban shots with these three gorgeous young people.  They had the sweet looks and poses that were easy to work with… and I completely loved their hats too!  Thanks so much for the awesome experience and support you guys… can’t wait to hang out with your family again in the future!

A Special Anniversary Session {Bow Island Family Photographer}

Posted on October 25, 2010

The Klein Family asked me to take family photos to help celebrate a special anniversary back in September!  It was such an honor, and a really easy session… how cute is their grandson?!  We battled some terrible wind, but found a few great locations at Centennial Park in Bow Island for these shots.  I heard that they had quite the celebration with family and friends at the park later that same evening… so I hope these photos were just the icing on the cake!  Congratulations on your anniversary once again, and thank you.

Family of Three {Medicine Hat Family Photographer}

Posted on October 24, 2010

I have known this little family forever… before they were a family in fact!  We somewhat “grew up” together, I’ve taught with Mary at a couple of different schools (including our present one…) and our daughters quite enjoy playing together as well.  We have a lot of history, funny stories and memories… fun times! 

I have had the pleasure of photographing them three times now… and I think this session turned out to be my favorite!  We took these in their backyard, and the colours were amazing.  Their little girl was so easy going and gave me some great photo opportunities… catching her smiles and giggles around every corner… love it!  Can’t wait until next years’ session!
