Willy + Ty Engaged :: Brooks Alberta Engagement Photographer ::

Being able to wait for a storm to come through to photograph a couple is kind of
like winning the jackpot. The dark clouds and bright canola make for such a dramatic
backdrop and I love that this is what Willy and Ty were after and that we could
coordinate to make it happen.

I have gotten to know Willy through her Prairie Blooms works, and have been lucky enough to take
a wreath making workshop and collaborate on some photos together.
It was such a treat to do this session with her.
Congratulations on your engagement!

Sneak Peek :: Pat and Soulafa are Married :: Canmore Alberta Wedding Photography

When your bride and groom get married in an art gallery (The Hive)  in Canmore, AB
and walk down an aisle of pink bubble wrap and have their cake inspired by a painting,
you know you’re in for a good and creative event!
Congratulations to Pat and Soulafa, I can’t wait to share the rest.

Alyssa :: Brooks Graduation Photography ::

Alyssa wanted something different for her Graduation photos, and
the train yard was a great spot. You’ll notice I’ve used this location twice recently.
The symmetry of the cars, the tracks and the lighting has been great!
Congrats Alyssa!

Janae :: Brooks Alberta Graduation Photography ::

I met with Janae and her sister for this fun graduation session at the
Brooks Horticultural Centre. It was a great location and the greenery made her
dress pop out beautifully. These two sisters were the sweetest, and so photogenic.
Their energy together made me excited to see our girls grow up together!
Congratulations Janae!

Baby Nash :: Brooks Alberta Portrait Photographer ::

I felt so lucky that this spontaneous session worked out.
This little guy is as great as the rest of his family, he was easy to photograph,
and very photogenic. My favourite moment is his little smirk during a Mom cuddle.
Can it get any cuter!

Trainyard Dance :: Brooks Alberta Photographer ::

I had this lovely request from one of these girls and her family to have some
fun post season dance photos done, and what better than to bring your whole team with you.
These girls are incredible dancers and part of the Rhythmic Soles Dance Academy family, it was such a
privilege to photograph them and watch them create art for me.
Thank you for the creative session.
Enjoy your summer vacation girls!

I felt so lucky to be trusted by these girls to do this fun session with them.
I loved their enthusiasm, giggles and keenness to experiment and be playful.
This session turned out better than I had envisioned it.

These two girls knew how to make a graduation session very creative and very fun!

Thank you for being so wonderful!

The Fouche kids at the chicken coup :: Brooks Alberta Family Photography ::

Nothing makes me happier in my creative heart than to get to photograph people in their home element.
Family sessions at home or while being active, or on a farm are always my favourite, especially with kids.
I feel like kids are always more at home, more genuine and more relaxed in their own environment.
I had a blast photographing the Fouche kids in their chicken coup.

Oh the love and joy that animals bring out in people.

Brooks Alberta Family Photography ::The Anderson Family ::

Not much is better for my photo ego than when someone travels far and wide to come
to Brooks for a photo session with me. And while that is not exactly what happened in this case, it is kind of sort of, a little bit – isn the case.

After travelling all the way from Manitoba, for a family holiday in Kimberley, this fun family came through Brooks, and I was lucky enough to photograph them.
These four belong to my dear friend Connie, who has been featured on my blog multiple times, and while they
were here, we spent a fun morning running around Lake Stafford, playing with sticks and smiling at their
beautiful new baby girl. What a joy it is to be able to photograph the Gonty / Gabrielle / Anderson families.

Thanks for the fun, the spirit and all of your bright energy!

Brooks Alberta Family Photography :: Ouma’s in town ::

This sweet little girl is so loved and so cherished.
Ouma was visiting from South Africa and I was so lucky to be asked to capture some
family love.
The looks, the smiles, the love, oh my!

I love watching families love. Without words. Just comfortable present love.
To just love and look, observe and be a part of that from a photography moment is a truly wonderful thing.
