What can I say about there first look other than there was a lot of butt grabbing! Haha This was probably one of my favourite moments of the day! I love when couples are just so goofy with each other, not taking things too serous, and just being in the moment!

This group was SO much FUN!! You can tell there is a ton of love in this group and they are not afraid to get down! There was laughter, tears and most of all smiles going around all week long.

After a serous incident and almost losing Janelle, there is so much to celebrate! Family and friends gathered around these two and helped support an unbelievable recovery to make this day possible! Congratulations you two, I can’t wait to see what the future brings you:)

I am looking forward to next year, when these two have an intimate wedding in Edmonton with friends and family.

A river side photo shoot was perfect for this fun loving goofy couple! Getting these two to smooch was NO Problem, haha! I think they were even a little sad when it was all over! But not to worry, next year we will be taking LOTS of pictures together:)

My Little Family

Portraiture

On April 5th we welcomed Gray Alexander into our lives, and things got a whole lot crazier!! 🙂


The emotions that hit me in the days to follow were very un expected. I was trying my best but couldn’t fight back the anxiety I felt. I was in pretty rough shape emotionally and was struggling to keep it together. I was shaming myself. That’s right shaming MYSELF! Why? Well it turns out I wasn’t that great at breastfeeding, and I sooo badly wanted to be GREAT at it! I struggled through pain, no sleep, soreness, anxiety attacks and tears. My poor little baby was doing his best to get what he needed, but there just wasn’t enough there.

So after a few weeks I cried through the decision to stop. And guess what, shit got sooo much better!! My emotions calmed, and I became more of myself again. Deciding to stop breast feeding was the best decision for me and my baby. I understand that breast feeding is the best way to nourish our little ones, trust me I have read ALL the articles, and I know ALL the benefits, I really wanted to be good at it, but I wasn’t expecting it to be sooo HARD, for me!

So with the support of Mr.Cheesy we switched to formula, our little guy is doing great, gaining weight in his gorgeous little thighs and cheeks:) and I am not a complete cry face mess!

At two months he is a smiley, loves listening to music and being held…a lot…maybe too much…but I don’t care, he will only be this little once:) So I will squish him and snuggle him as much as I want! He is the most amazing thing I have seen, and I will make sure to share with ALL of you his little face as he grows up to be a curious little man!!

Life is good with these two crazy dudes:)

Joy’s Session | Maternity Portraits

Maternity, Portraiture

Joy is having a BABY GIRL!!

I love doing maternity portraits, there is just something special about being pregnant, and I get to capture it:) Which is pretty awesome!

maternity-portrait-outside-beside-the-river-in-saskatoonThis session was a little last minute, Joy was my hairstylist and makeup artist for another shoot I was doing! (fabulously talented, and located at Visions Salon and Spa in Saskatoon) She didn’t have a maternity photographer yet so we got together and did this session right down by the river. I love shooting by the river in Saskatoon, you can get super close without fearing of falling in haha!

Valentines Day | Boudoir

Boudoir, Glamour

Valentines Day is one of the busiest holidays for Boudoir. A gift a lot of women give to there significant other. But its not only that!

boudoir

Sexy, empowered, strong, free, just simply amazing! These are just some of the words used to describe the experience my clients have. Which to me, is why I do it.

I know what it is like to feel gross, small, powerless and depressed about myself, its not a fun place to be. That voice in my head would prevent me from really feeling fabulous, and great about myself. Well I kicked that voices ass!!!! Don’t get me wrong, its still there, but I know how to deal with it now:)

Boudoir

Having a Boudoir/Glamour shoot is not going to fix this little voice in our heads, but it sure can give it a boost. We are all our own worst enemy, and I am looking to lighten that load. Giving myself a break and really focusing on what I love about myself. This is what I offer my clients. A chance to squash that voice with an amazing experience of self love, because we are all worthy!

Boudoir

Boudoir

A Boudoir/Glamour session gives you a chance to see yourself as I do and the people around you. Size doesn’t make us beautiful.

What is beautiful is a woman who cares enough about herself to treat herself with LOVE and respect! This Valentines Day, whether you are booking a Boudoir/Glamour session for your significant other or its just for you, just remember you will likely be addicted to the feeling of Self Love:)

It’s getting to be graduation time here in Edmonton, and the girls are shopping for gowns!! It brings back so many memories of my mom making my dress, getting my hair done, and having fun with my friends!

This session was in Downtown Edmonton. We found some pretty great brick walls, doorways and even garbage cans!! I love shooting on location, especially in areas with this much character! Downtown Edmonton has so much to offer, from tall buildings creating so much open shade, to little parks tucked away off the street!
