Sweet Little Lana

Carolyn and Ross are long time clients of mine. I had the honour and privilege of shooting their STUNNING Hycroft Manor Wedding back in the summer of 2013. It was a perfect day, at the perfect venue, with the perfect couple. Then, in September 2014, just over 1 year later, I met with them again. This time to photograph Carolyn’s growing bump… and again everything was perfect. (Almost ridiculously so! I’d hate these two for being so damn perfect if they weren’t so fun, and down to earth, and genuine!)

One thing you should know about Carolyn and Ross is that they are straight-shooters. Despite their hollywood good looks and their fancy wedding- They don’t like frills. They don’t like gimmicks. They don’t do ‘cutesy’ or ‘posey’ or ‘gaze at each other lovingly while thinking about buttercups and faery-dust‘. From the very first day that I sat down with them over a beer to chat about their upcoming nuptials, they have been VERY clear about what they don’t want in their photos– cheese.

I have to admit, when they approached me about maternity photos this past fall, I was a bit surprised. Maternity photos? For Carolyn and Ross? Surely that’s too “cheesy”?! They were quick to add that they would never have approached ANYONE but me for the task, because they knew that I ‘got it’ and would keep the session down to earth and true to them. It was flattering to be trusted so implicitly. It is refreshing to work with clients who understand & appreciate my style so well… and vice-versa.

So, now here they are. Welcoming their newest addition a (…you guessed it) absolutely perfect little girl. Lana. She’s full of life, vivacious, & endlessly charming…. not unlike her wonderful Momma.

Welcome, sweet Lana. I can’t wait to watch you grow.

C* Family {Rossland Family Photographer}

The C* family are avid golfers and live just across the street from Rossland’s RedStone Golf Resort so it was only fitting that this beautiful club be the backdrop for their sunny family session.

We spent an hour together zipping around on golf carts and snapping photos as we went. I’d never been on a golf cart before and could not believe how rugged they were! I had also never been to RedStone and was so impressed with the beauty of the course & the friendliness of every golfer and staff member that we met. What a gem!

The C* Family especially requested a family shot at Hole 11 because of it’s stunning view of Red Mountain in the distance… When I saw the spot for myself, I was more than happy to oblige (see above).

Pumpkin Patch

Thanks to my awesome holiday special, I have some super fun shoots lined up.
Most recently, I joined 16 month old Tadhg to the Pumpkin Patch. I was able to snap some great photos of him playing, choosing his pumpkins, navigating through a hay-bale maze and riding in a wheelbarrow! It was a rainy/drizzly day, but I think the rain added a really great ‘fall’ atmosphere to the shots.
