Happy New Year everyone! I can’t believe how fast 2009 has gone, but at the same time it’s been an eventful year! It’s been such a wonderful experience to meet so many new people – couples who are celebrating the beginning of their new lives together, families who are welcoming new arrivals, artists and musicians who are pursuing their passions and other photographers who have inspired and encouraged me. I’m looking forward to the coming months where new and exciting changes are coming: including a new (and absolutely gorgeous) studio space I will now be renting in the Exchange District. More details on that soon…. you don’t want to miss this!

Today I just finished editing a lovely engagement photo shoot with Courtney & Cole – a delightful couple from Lloydminster, Saskatchewan that I had the pleasure of meeting for the first time on Tuesday. They drove in (braving the crazy winter prairie highways) all the way to Winnipeg during the Christmas holidays, and it was great to finally put faces to the names! We had “met” over the phone a few months ago, and after our conversations, I just knew they were going to be a fun, easy-going pair. They’re the type of people who you can sit down for coffee with and talk for hours about everything and nothing. It was great to see their colourful personalities and love for each other coming through even in front of a camera – they were naturals!

Although we’re starting to experience the deep freeze here in Winnipeg, that didn’t stop us from taking some fun photos outside too. Thanks you two for braving the cold for some lovely shots! You guys look adorable and I can’t wait for the wedding!
