Summer Catchup

I get behind in blogging and updating my website. Facebook is updated often and this gets forgotten sometimes. Sorry. 

Summer is winding down, with only a couple of sessions left until Autumn hits, I figured that it would be wonderful to do a post combining spring and summer. 

I have been busy, and it has been lovely. Really, I cannot wait to see more beautiful faces and capture more memories. 

I hope that I'll see everyone in Autumn!

For The Birds - Edmonton Engagement Photography

"I once asked an old man: which is more important, to love or be loved? He replied: which is more important to a bird, the left wing or the right wing?"

 

In a week, these two crazy kids will be married, and I am the lucky photographer who gets to capture the memories.

Adorably awkward, their main request for their engagement shoot was to include the geese.

So on a sunny spring day, we went for a walk.

The geese had their babies so we couldn't get too close, but they did allow us to be near enough to include them.

Planning - Edmonton Photographer

Oh winter in Alberta. These things we all come to know, and having lived in this province my whole life, come to expect. The unseasonal warmth we recently welcomed didn't last, but who amongst us really expected it to.

I have spent much of the past month in Edson, sledding and getting trapped in massive amounts of snow. It's been fun. I'll be returning there soon.

For many of those that I know, the big problem with winter is the cold and the snow. I understand, especially when the temperatures drop and playing outside becomes dangerous. Even my camera stops working when it is far too cold.

That all makes the winter lonely, picture wise. My head is filled with ideas and people long to go adventuring, but sometimes we must wait for spring. And surely, with the recent warmth and light bursting through our windows, the longing has increased greatly.

We plan our gardens, and hope for May flowers. We dream of June weddings and the fall of cherry blossoms. We see life exploding before our eyes, we float on seas of greens and sky blue.

Booking is always available, even when the weather isn't cooperating. While you dream of sunny days ahead, travels to far off lands, adventures with loved ones... we can plan to capture memories of your family just as they are. We can create a magical world for your children to be immortalized with. Let us dream, and plan, and create. Let there be a chance to see in yourself all that you are, all that you could be.

Christmas Mini Sessions - Edmonton Family Photography

A blizzard hit. The roads were terrible, snow blanketed the earth, and a chill filled the air. Really, is there anything more true for an Edmonton Christmas? Nope, not really. Even my toes froze through my new winter boots. 

These families braved the roads and the cold to come out to The Mactaggart Sanctuary. I love this location and the snow did not disappoint. Just look at how pretty the blizzard made everything!

With snow sparkling our vision we captured some memories. We have snow for how many months of the year in Edmonton? It's a big part of our lives and at the end, will be a big part of our memories as well.

These were my last mini sessions until Spring. Next year, I will only be offering mini sessions 3 times, and I will of course post when that information is available.

Also, for those who are still wanting sessions in time for Christmas, I still have availability for the rest of November and December! Send me a message so that we can book your session!

Christmas Mini Sessions - Edmonton Family Photography

I know, I know, it's not even Halloween yet and here I am telling you about Christmas mini sessions. Please believe me, I do understand. Though sometimes things need to be planned in advance. Like Christmas cards. It won't be long now before we are knee deep in gift shopping and the pace of the mail system will show why it's often called snail mail.

This will be the last mini sessions I offer until Spring. And they'll be holiday themed! I'll be bringing along props and setting up some decorations to give a holiday feel to your images. Perfect for gifting, cards, and to just spread that joyous feeling throughout the season!  

November 16th and 17th.  

Taking place the Mactaggart Sanctuary.

Spaces must be booked in advance.  

Available times each day:

One Autumn Afternoon Part 6 - Edmonton Family Photography

Just look at this bright and bubbly family. So much energy and excitement came with their session! I really love when families are willing to be silly and have fun with their photos. I think it shows more truth and more beauty. And these guys were not of smiles and happiness for their session. I hope that I'll get to see them again!

One Autumn Afternoon Part 5 - Edmonton Family Photography

This little guy wasn't too sure about me or the fedora wearing secret agent platapus that sits on the end of my camera. But I think we captured some beautiful moments for his family. They were so much fun, being silly and playing, just being themselves and letting me capture it. I hope that I'll get to photograph them again!

One Autumn Afternoon Part 3 - Edmonton Couples Photography

Let's take a moment to talk about how cute these two are together, shall we? This was their first photo shoot together, and I hope that it won't be their last! They completely rocked it. I don't get the opportunity to shoot couples that often but it can be a lot of fun, especially when you are as happy as these two.
