One of the things I love about where we live is the rolling expanse of prairie land and how they meet at the foothills of the Rockies.  We have such gorgeous landscape and such incredible sunsets here.  I am so very thankful I had an equally beautiful young woman to help me capture it all.

Here’s a little of what a warm summer evening in the prairies felt like to me…

I hope you are enjoying your summer wherever you are…

I wanted to say a huge heartfelt “thanks” to all the mothers who I had the pleasure to work with over the last year.  Thanks for wanting to capture the time before you officially became a mom, the time you had family gathering from far and wide, the time you held your newborn baby boy and could hardly believe he was here, from first birthdays, to coming home from school for a visit and the time before they left again to start a new adventure…for all of these times and many, many more. I am thankful I was able to capture it.  I wish you an awesome Mother’s Day :)

Here’s just a few of the moms and the memories….

A few of my favourites from 2013…some because they captured my heart as soon as I took them, some because I worked for months to create them and others because of the moments they meant to the families I photographed. A mixture of personal and client photographs, I hope you enjoy them as much I did making them.

I hope that 2014 will be a year of change for me, as it is promising to be.  I will be embarking on a few personal projects again, which I cannot wait to get started on:)

What does 2014 hold for you and who will be in your pictures?

Sometimes I am lucky. Sometimes he still lets me take pictures of him. My in between and oldest.  Almost all grown up (almost). A few from last night before the snow hit….

This is a bit of a departure for me in style, but I wanted to share something that I have been working on for a while now.  The idea came to me when I saw the dark tree in winter, lifeless branches reaching across the sky. To me it was somehow ominous and sheltering at the same time. Dark and light, soft and structured. I knew right then I wanted all those elements in the picture.

This is a modern day, my modern day, take on Tatiana, the fairy queen from MidSummer’s Night’s Dream, my favourite Shakespeare play.  In my head she is a young woman on the twilight of her childhood at once sheltered and exposed, much like that transition she is making…

Stay tuned for a casting call as I will be working on more personal projects like these!!
