I had the pleasure of taking photos of the Steele family again! We first met back in September last year when we spent a beautiful fall evening walking around McKenzie Trails. This time I was welcomed into their home with their family, the day after Piper’s first birthday party. Holden and Piper are the absolute cutest & I couldn’t believe how much Piper grew in just six months! It’s always an honour and means SO much to me to have repeat clients, especially when I get to watch/capture their little ones grow up.
This is the family that won my Family Day Facebook giveaway! I was ecstatic they won when I saw how absolutely ADORABLE they are, plus I always love when the family dog gets to join our shoot. Harper and Aubrey are such sweet little girls who love to dance and sing, Kirby brought out the karaoke machine and they sung up a storm for us!
As soon as I walked into the Wade’s home I knew it was going to be a dream session! Not only are they incredibly beautiful and kind people but their home is gorgeous and has amazing light. I had a wonderful time chatting away, drinking the best latte straight from their kitchen, and just hanging out with them while they went about their day. Sullivan is such a little doll and the amount of love radiating from Brittany & Andrew towards him was incredibly heart-warming. Plus just look at Mabel! She is one of the sweetest and cutest dogs I’ve ever met. I couldn’t help but smile going through these photos, they are such a beautiful family and I’m honoured to have been able to capture this special time in their lives.
I was so excited when I got an email from Abby asking me if I would take her photos for her Miss Teen Alberta competition, especially after meeting her and seeing what an absolutely gorgeous lady she is! We kicked off the day by getting her hair done by the incredibly talented Lindsey Bell at Crop Hair Boutique downtown, where we met up with Abby’s mom, Nicole (who is also insanely beautiful). Lindsey did such a killer job on Abby’s hair with a gorgeous half up-do and stunning curls. From there we went to Dose and luckily made it in before they closed, the lighting/vibe there is amazing and the coffee is even better! After we grabbed our coffees we walked around for a bit downtown, it was a super chilly day but Abby & Nicole were absolute champs about it. Nicole had the best idea that we should go into Sunworks and take some there and I am forever grateful for that because the photos turned out beautifully!! There are also SO many neat things in that shop, I’ll definitely be back to pick up some decor items I eyed up there!
I was lucky enough to hang out with the VandenBrink family while they got ready for the Daddy Daughter dance on Saturday! Krista co-owns Breathing Room Yoga Studio and I take her class most mornings. She is the most incredible yoga teacher, person, mom & light in my life, I couldn’t wait to get to know her family a bit better.
Within just a few moments of being there I knew it was going to be tons of fun, Gretchen is one of the funniest, sweetest girls I’ve ever had the pleasure of taking photos of. Not only is she absolutely gorgeous – she is hilarious, incredibly kind and a natural entertainer! Dancing and singing the evening away. These photos just melt my heart, you can see how much Krista and Chad love each other (& Gretchen!) and are meant to be. Truly a beautiful family inside and out!!
