I have to admit that engagement sessions/ couple sessions are among my absolute favourite types of sessions to shoot. So I was super excited when Steph contacted me to do her and Weston’s engagement session!
As I am sure you will all agree, this is one photogenic couple! I was so impressed with how easy they were to work with and photograph. We definitely had a bit of a challenge with the wind and cold weather but these two didn’t let it faze them one bit!! They made my job so easy and fun!
Thanks so much Steph & Weston – you were a JOY to photograph, I hope that your married life is just as amazing as you hoped it would be!
I wish you much happiness in the years to come.
things don’t always go as planned.
especially if you are 2.
I’m cool with that.
I think he is pretty darn cute whether he is smiling or crying.
I think you will agree

they say that things are better late than never right? … a sincere apology to this lovely family!! I took their pictures last November and still haven’t blogged them! my, my how time flies by when you are distracted by life!
I am happy to say that the lovely Siever family is now on my blog! They were nothing but a joy to work with – such well behaved, lovely children made my job so easy!
Thank you Siever family for your lovely compliments on my work, and for trusting me to capture some moments of your family…it was truly a pleasure.
it is so much fun to see how much clients change and grow from session to session… I had the pleasure of photographing these 3 last year around this time of year and i definitely noticed a difference! however, they were just as funny and good looking!
here is a little sneak peek.
here is what they looked like last year…

this session makes me so happy…everytime i look at these images i feel all warm and fuzzy inside!
This lovely mama was my very first friend here in Lethbridge, AB. The moment i saw her sitting on the floor in the hallway of the University waiting to get into our classroom i knew that i wanted to be friends with her…i didn’t know how it would happen, only that it would happen..somehow…
it turned out that we had a couple of classes together that very first semester of our first year at the University of Lethbridge…I don’t particularly know how we started talking but eventually we did and she started to invite me over to her apartment to hang out and after that we became fast friends! Eventually we grew apart and lost touch with eachother…something that i regretted for many years after…I used to think about her all of the time and wonder how she was…what she was up to…i often wondered if she truly knew how much she had meant to me back then…what a blessing she had been in my life…i began to wonder if i would ever have to the chance to see her again or to make things right between us…
well fast forward about a decade and through the miracle of facebook we had the chance to re-connect and as it turned out she and her husband ( she was married to the boy she had been dating all the way back when we used to hang out) and her son ( she had a son! what?!) were thinking of moving back to Lethbridge! what luck!
to make a long story short…they did end up moving back here and her and i picked up where we had left off – those 10 + years seem to melt away the moment i saw her…i remembered all of the many reasons why she had meant so very much to me. She was and remains to be to this day a friend who unconditionally loves & accepts me. grateful is such a small word to use to describe how i feel to have her back in my life!
since we’ve reconnected she & her husband have had another baby – it was so fun to see her pregnant with this sweet little boy and to meet him for the first time…he is such a little charmer and has gorgeous eyes like his equally handsome big brother. i was so lucky to have been trusted with their special family of 4 moments and to have gotten many sweet baby Liam snuggles in that day!
this post reminds me that life is good…and friendship can stand the test of time and the silly decisions of youth…that what is meant to be…will always be and that true friends are worth fighting for and waiting for. This post also reminds me of the miracle of life…that sometimes the road can be hard…but when you finally arrive you know it was worth all of the stumbling blocks you had to endure to get there…This family is beautiful and special and I am so, so happy to have them back in my life!
i love you Jeanna girl…thank you for everything.
As you can see I am still playing catch up on this blog – The good news is I am only a few more sessions away from being up to date! Hopefully 2013 will bring with it some better blogging habits!
Here is a session I did with the beautiful Stanford family in the fall of 2012. They have become regular clients of mine which is so fun b/c i get to see these adorable kiddos grow up in front of my lens!
I’m really excited that this family will be adding baby # 4 this summer – I can’t wait to see if it will be a boy or a girl!
I’m sure you will be seeing more of this lovely family on my blog this year
i had the privilege of doing an extended family session for my very good friend Megan & her family this past fall…it included some special people that are a very big and important part of her family life…her grandparents…it was such a joy to be with both of her grandma’s and her darling grandpa. I am happiest when i see & photograph generations together in a family…it is so special to see a great grandpa with his little great grandson…it always amazes me to see the connections and the sweet legacy that is created by 2 people throughout the years…
thank you Megs for trusting me with your family moments, I know how special these people are to you and i hope these images remind you of that everytime you look at them.
I am officially the worst blogger….this post has been sitting in “drafts” since February…how sad…
well it is finally time for these 3 lovely couples to have their moment in the spotlight!
I had a wonderful time on this brisk fall afternoon shooting this large family session for my very amazing friend Megan…Although the chill in the air was hard on the little ones of the family, these 3 couples took it in stride! ( I think the cold encouraged some cuddling too…i definitely won’t be complaining about that!)
I will post the rest of the images from this family session next…but for now here are some of the lovely couples that make up this beautiful family!
