Riane Maternity

When your best friend is wanting to get into photography and wants to shadow you for some sessions, it can be kind of nerve wracking! It just so happened that Riane, a friend who I attended NAIT with for Photography was expecting, so I asked her to do some modelling for us. Naturally she did amazing, seriously how adorable is that baby bump!? Riane now has a stunning baby boy named Quintyn.

Congrats on your new addition Riane, so excited for you and Syngyn, I can’t wait to see your little guy grow up!

Amanda Boudoir

As I said on a sneak peek from Amanda’s session on Instagram…can we all just appreciate how AMAZING she looks!? I can’t believe she had the cutest baby girl only 6 months ago. I’m so happy that her friend convinced her to come out and have boudoir photos done. One of my favorite things during her session was when I wanted her to smile, all I had to say was “Think about Addison!” her daughter, and she immediately had a big smile on her face.

Thanks so much for trusting me to do your boudoir photos Amanda, you did fantastic! ❤

Emilie Boudoir

On January 21, I photographed boudoir for the very first time! I can’t even begin to explain how nervous and excited I was leading up to this. Emilie was one of 3 girls I photographed that day. It was SO much fun. It felt awesome to push myself and try something that was outside of my comfort zone, and I think it really paid off. I absolutely loved the makeup that Kassidy of KD Artistry did for the girls, but I think Emilie’s was probably my favourite. That purple smokey eye with her hair colour looks amazing.

Thank you for trusting me to do your boudoir photos Em, you’re gorgeous!

A special thanks again to Kassidy for doing makeup, and Tara Marie for being the best assistant ever.

If you’re interested in having your own boudoir session, message me!

Halle Birth Story

I was lucky enough to be asked by this adorable family to capture another one of their little ones being born!

Kate & Steven would have liked to have a natural birth but Halle had other plans. She was breached, and their doctor did say that if they wanted to, they could still try for a natural birth. They both felt that if she was in that position it must be for a reason, so they decided to go with a cesarean. It turned out that the umbilical cord was wrapped around her neck once, so they made the right choice. I thought that was really neat. So we met Halle Samantha Grace a little later than expected on August 10 at 7:41pm and she was a beautiful 8lbs 3oz!

Congrats again you guys, it is an honour to watch your family grow.

Marisa & Justin | Maternity

It’s both nerve wracking and extremely exciting when one of your best friends asks you to take her maternity photos. I’m so proud of this gorgeous mama! Baby Jack graced us with his presence on December 31 2015 and he was 9 lbs 7 oz & 21 inches long.

I got to meet him when he was two weeks old, and he was pretty much the most chill baby ever and just slept the whole time. ( Which is great for me because I don’t always know what to do when they cry, ha ha!) I’m very excited for you guys, congrats on becoming parents!

Annelise & Kris | Miquelon Lake/Camrose Wedding

In September, I headed out to an adorable little church in the country with my friend Taylor Kanary as my sidekick for the day.

I photographed Annelise & Kris’ engagement session in October 2014 at Miquelon Lake, and it was awesome! It was so easy to get genuine photos of them, and I got so many adorable shots of them laughing, which are my favourite.

When I found out that they were going to do a first look on their wedding day, I was even more excited, because I knew that Kris would have such a great expression when he saw Annelise. Anytime I was around them, I could tell that they just love eachother so much, I’m pretty sure I had a goofy grin on my face their entire wedding day, ha ha.

Thank you two so much for having us photograph your wedding, it was an absolute joy to be a part of.

Robyn & Oliver | Westlock County Wedding

This past June, on what was probably the hottest day of the year, I captured an absolutely ADORABLE backyard wedding. Robyn was such a sweetheart, and so understanding when I kind of got horribly lost trying to find her Mom & Step Dad’s acreage! Oliver is from Australia and a lot of his family travelled very far to attend the wedding, unfortunately I was not the only one who got lost! 😛

As Lauren, the  maid of honour, said in her speech, Robyn has always been more concerned about others than herself, and it was so easy to see that any time I interacted with her. Both Robyn and Oliver are surrounded by such amazing and supportive family members, and everyone was so friendly!

Thank you for having me capture your big day for you, it was awesome.

Mark & Meagan | Leduc Wedding Photographer

This past June I got to be a side kick and second shoot this wedding with Lauren Voisin Photography. Mark & Meagan had their wedding in the absolutely ADORABLE blue chapel at Van Es Camp. We were worried about rain, but luckily by the time the ceremony was over, the sun was shining again! Thanks again to Lauren for giving me the privilege of helping capture Mark & Meagan’s big day!

Edmonton Birth Photographer | Alexander Michael William Degroot

I am unbelievably excited to share this with you. In November I had the amazing opportunity to photograph my first birth story. Kate was a childhood friend of mine, so when she trusted me to capture such an intimate moment in her and Steven’s lives, I was STOKED.

We had a couple false alarms with this little guy, so I have some images shot during that time at the beginning. Finally, on November 20 at around 2AM I got a phone call and it was time to head to the hospital! And at 2:26PM in the afternoon, Alexander decided to come out and meet us. Words cannot even begin to describe how incredible this experience was for me. I am starting to tear up again thinking about it. It was so worth the all nighter we pulled!

The last few moments when he was almost here were so emotional. I actually started to feel tears welling up in my eyes before the same thing happened to Steven. It was so, so beautiful to witness these two become parents for a third time. Thank you guys so much for allowing me to be there and experience this with you. These are some of my favourite photographs I have ever captured.

(And thanks to Taylor Swift for writing this awesome song, Never Grow Up. I thought it was rather fitting.)
