I was lucky enough to live only a few doors down from this adorable family for a few years before we built our new house.   While they are adorable, they’re also some of the kindest people you could meet. I  was sad to leave them as neighbours, but happy I could still photograph their family this summer.  We had a wonderful family lifestyle session in the river valley, playing in the water on a warm August evening. And any session that ends with ice cream (and fresh carrots from the garden!) in the backyard is pretty perfect by me! I love a shooting mix a documentary style photography along with portraits to give to Grandma- definitely love to  photograph your family connections every way I can.

Thanks Patten Family for being all around awesome, the new neighbours are lucky to have you!


Last week I had the pleasure of photographing Kelly and Cam Talbot’s adorable twin babies at 8 months old. I first met them last October when they were only a few days old, and now these sweet little twins are hitting new milestones- like sitting up and crawling all over!  Our recent session got me thinking that it was time to share their lovely newborn portraits on this blog.  Last October seems like forever ago… but strangely it also seems like just last week. Time is funny like that, especially when you have young kids.

The twins, Landon and Sloane,  made headlines in Edmonton when their Dad, Cam, kept on winning big games in net after their birth. They ended up being quite possibly the cutest lucky charms The Oilers have ever seen.   They also got their own adorable hashtag #talbottwins, and how many babies can say that?

Thank you Kelly and Cam for having me in your home to photograph your sweet babies. You’re both some of the kindest, most genuine people I’ve met.  I have loved getting to know you and I’m looking forward to seeing you again for the next big milestone.




How could we resist a picture with Dad’s helmet or the puck from his first big win after their birth? And those tiny jerseys? All the <3

I was lucky enough to be able to meet up with Paula and her family while we were camping in Jasper National Park last summer. They didn’t mind me smelling like campfire, and I certainly didn’t mind having the Rocky Mountains as a backdrop for their family session. It worked out perfectly.  I love photographing families in new places and new spaces- especially when we can coordinate it with my travel and summer camping schedule.  I have a few travel dates that still have room for one more family session. If you are interested in any of the locations below just send me a message to inlove(@) and let’s chat dates!


But back to Paula and her family.  Thank you so much for the opportunity to photograph your family in Jasper and be a small part of this momentous life occasion. I can’t wait to share your newborn session with sweet baby Quinn soon. The road to becoming a family of four was filled with challenges you never expected, but now things are perfect and just the way they were meant to be. And I can’t believe Quinn is almost a year old (I guess that means I have A LOT of blogging to catch up on!).

Lots of love to your family,


Any time I get to photograph a family in a place that’s near and dear to them it makes my heart so happy. I was lucky enough to photograph the Packford Family out at their cabin on Wabamum Lake on a warm summer evening. We roasted marshmallows, played in the water,  created some art and just hung out in their favourite place. It was one of those perfect summer evenings. Kayla even made me the most delicious, melty s’more you could imagine.  If every session could be as fun (and tasty!) and I’d be one happy photographer.

If you’re thinking about booking a family session for this summer, let’s connect and chat about all the places your family loves. I’m sure we can create some magic together.
