Wow, you guys. If you were not at The Essential Conference yesterday, you definitely missed out. I have so many thoughts I want to share about the day, so I’m going to try to do this in a somewhat organized way. Lol. The Conference Itself The Essential Conference itself was absolutely amazing. It was SO […]

What I Learned at The Essential Conference

I have to admit, when I’m on my way to a family session and it clouds over, I feel a little bummed out. Don’t get me wrong, cloudy day photos are beautiful too but I am just drawn to the light! I love the sun shining through the trees, or on the back of my […]

Erin and Riley Birds Hill Park Family Session

I have always wanted to do a Christmas Tree farm session! And I finally had the opportunity a few weeks ago. I met my sweet friends and their daughters out at CD Tree Farm near Steinbach, Manitoba. We had worked together to plan out their outfits (hello complimentary fuzzy vests!). Because it was a chilly […]

Christmas Tree Farm Family Session

Oh. My. Goodness. I still feel overwhelmed thinking about the amazing day I had last month photographing my sold out Christmas Mini Sessions! I know there are TONS of photographers that offer Christmas minis so I want to say thank you! Thank you to each and every family that chose me to capture these moments […]

Christmas Mini Sessions

It’s always a really special treat for me to be able to photograph couples! As much as I adore doing family photography, it’s really fun to switch it up now and then! Doing a couples portrait session allows for a bit more creativity because, let’s face it, they tend to listen to direction a bit […]

Brittany and Dan Portrait Session

I have had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful family for a couple of years now. Stef and I are very similar when it comes to photos. We’ll do whatever it takes to get gorgeous images. Even if it means wearing a dress when it’s 7 above outside! I loved that Stef trusted me to […]

Chester and Stef Fall Family Session

Fall is such a tricky time of year for photo sessions. It could either be 20 above and sunny, or we could have snow! Well, we lucked out with this session. It was a beautiful evening out at birds hill park and literally two days later, we had a snow storm that resulted in a […]

Chris and Carly Fall Family Session

I think the first thing I said to Tranda when I met her in person after following her on Instagram for sometime was “I feel like I already know you”! As much as Instagram can be a royal pain (hello ever changing algorithms) it’s pretty cool that it allows us to get to know each […]

Tranda Family Session

Victoria Beach has always been such a special place to me. I grew up going there with my Step-Mom (even before she was my Step-Mom). Earlier on, Gina would bring my older sister and I down there to help my Dad (who was essentially raising four girls on his own). She would always have so […]

Our First Family Vacation

I’m not going to lie, when Erika asked me to do the photography for her wedding, I hesitated. Not because I didn’t want to help her out, but because I am a family photographer and I know it takes years of experience to master the skills that wedding photographers have! After some thought (and some […]
