Melissa + Trent: Engagement Photos

August 24th, 2014

I met up with Melissa & Trent on a beautiful summer evening at King's Park for their engagement photo session. I love King's Park because of its vastness - when you're there, it's never just for a quick little stroll. The best parts of the park are in the back, which means you get a long, leisurely walk down the paths, over the bridges and through the fields. We did just that and I had an absolutely lovely time with these two. They are sweet, playful and wholely into each other and it definitely showed. Here are a few photos from our walk through the park! Congratulations you two - all the best as you whisk away to the tropics for your wedding this winter!

Cousins at St. Vital Park

August 21st, 2014

Seeing small families getting larger with the addition of cute little kids just makes me smile. Seeing my own kids with their cousins just reminds me of how great it is when a family expands and kids are added to the mix. Cousins can be your best buds, and it was evident that these guys are just that to each other! This family was so sweet and my time with them at St. Vital Park was such a delight. We braved the crazy mosquitoes, but fortunately we all survived and these gems came of the photo session. Thanks guys for all the smiles, laughs and fun!

Hey Jude!

August 21st, 2014

This kiddo recently celebrated 1 year on this earth (what a milestone!) and what perfect way to celebrate than with photos of a stroll through his favourite dog park with his dog Seymour. It was great exploring the back woods of this dog park - one that I wasn't familiar with but super happy to discover! Sean & Natasha have the cutest little guy and I couldn't be happier for them and their new little family. Jude's such a happy kid and that adorable face of his just melts my heart. Happy birthday buddy!

Product Photography for Winnipeg's MÛR shop

August 18th, 2014

I aboslutely love when someone has a passion for a certain aesthetic, sees a need for specific products and finds a solution to make them available not only for themselves, but for their friends and community who also share this same passion. Danielle Cyr did just that and born from that passion is her newest business venture: MÛR Lifestyle. Their online store is described with this succinct phrase: "Shop of handmade curiosities for inspired living."

Maternity Photos at St. Vital Park, Winnipeg

August 18th, 2014

One of the very first weddings I photographed professionally was Lizanne & Raymond's several years ago. It's such a long time ago, that I can't even dig up their blog post! (I'm not even sure it exists!) So when I heard from Lizanne that they were expecting their first baby, I was super excited to get another opportunity to take photos for them. It's been a long time but seeing them still just as madly in love with each other brought me right back to their wedding day. This time though, there was an extra dose of excitement. Nothing prepares you for the journey of having a baby, except actually walking through it, so it's such a special opportunity to photograph the parents in the last few days of coupledom before baby arrives. These two were absolutely glowing! We started the session indoors as the rain fell outside, but soon enough, the rain stopped, the skies parted and we got these glorious photos at St. Vital Park. Congratulations you two!!

Bergen Multi Family Photos at the University of Manitoba

August 11th, 2014

Any family with 4 kids seems pretty big considering today's norms, but imagine those 4 kids being all girls -- and then those girls growing up and adding 6 more girls to the family! Meet the Bergens - a super fun bunch, and always a great time to photograph! But it's not all girls - there is one grandson that made it into the mix, and together these kids make their grandparents' hearts full. They were absolutely adorable and made great subjects for my camera. We had a lovely time at the University of Manitoba - the rain spared us and we got some great shots with a mix of architecture and nature. We even had time for some cute dandelion pickings! Thank you to all of you for making this such a fun photos session!

Seth | 6-month-old baby photos

July 27th, 2014

Back in May I got to spend a super fun hour with this delightful family! Six month old babies are just the cutest ever, and Seth definitely showed off all of his irresistable traits! He was so easy going, so playful and never short on smiles. His parents were just as lovely and together they made such a great trio. Not only were they super awesome to photograph, but they also were so fun to hang out with! I absolutely loved this session with them and I'm so happy we were able to create so many fantastic shots together. Here's a handful of the photos we got in studio!

Oak & Lily: Sneak Peek!

July 24th, 2014

This morning I spent a couple hours with the creative genius and super lovely Tatiana of Oak & Lily to capture a little slice of her life with flowers at her beautiful shop on Corydon in Winnipeg. Here's a handful of the photos we took, with more coming soon!

Rusty is 2 years old!

July 21st, 2014

My sister-in-law & brother-in-law asked me earlier this Spring if I could take photos of their son to mark his 2nd birthday, and of course I said YES (enthusiastically). It's always such a treat to see my cute little nephew, and taking his photos was sure going to be a good time! And that it was! We kept it simple and I followed him around his house for some casual portraits at home. Nothing over-produced or elaborate - just hanging out with this awesome kid. He has such a delightful personality and a sweetness to him - no wonder all of it came through so easily in these photos. Love you Rusty!
