Goodbye...for now!

showing off my baby bump in our beautiful backyard! Might have to do some shoots here!
PREGS


Yes...I have completely abandoned my Photography Blog. 
Not my photography exactly, but just sharing my photography.

As most of you know who have followed my work or know me personally, my husband and I are expecting our 3rd child this spring. This past fall I struggled with pregnancy sickness so much that something had to slide...and since I still had to keep my other children alive and happy - it ended up being my work. My clients were extremely understanding in me delaying deadlines for edited photos (THANK YOU!!!), and now that I'm past the sick part of pregnancy, I'm getting bigger by the week and excited to have this baby. I have shot some beautiful sessions and weddings this past fall that I would've LOVED to share on here, but sadly I had neither the time or the energy.
I have a few sessions booked this spring, and am not taking any more sessions. If you care to follow my photography I continue to post favourites from sessions on my facebook page, feel free to view that album!

My Plan is to take a break from Photography after this baby arrives, focus on being a mom to 3 little kids for a while, and once I get my feet back I would like to completely re-vamp my Photography business. I plan to come back with some new skills under my belt, a new business name, a new direction, and new website. I will leave this blog up until then and post a link to my new site.

Thank you for supporting my business over the past few years, I have loved photographing your weddings, your family, your love!
I have been very blessed over the past few months with exciting things in my life - this new baby of course, purchasing our first home, and my husband landing his dream Firefighter job, which he worked tirelessly for over 4 years to get! I am looking forward to taking some time off to enjoy all of that, and then look forward to coming back to Photography with exciting new things to offer! So until then, thanks for everything!

Lyndon & Erika | Part 1

Someday I will stop posting soooo many pictures per post - but that day is not today! Going through Lyndon and Erika's beautiful wedding day's photos, it is so hard to narrow them down, I am just so excited to share some highlights with you. The day was filled with love, laughter, tears and so much joy. I enjoyed every moment. Except when I locked my keys and camera in my car during portraits. Not that part - but the wedding party was great even through that! Aaaaaah...anyways - part 1 of the beautiful wedding day of Lyndon and Erika. A big thanks to the talented Amanda Oliver for getting the awesome shots of the guys in the morning!
Many more photos to follow!

Marco and Sarah ~ Part 3 ~ Portraits

I had SO much fun shooting these portraits from Marco and Sarah's July wedding, and there are sooooo many cool shots to share, I just couldn't narrow it down to a few...so here's...well - lots. Thanks to Sarah and Marco for allowing me to be part of this day, and to the wedding party for being so fun! The day just felt so incredibly happy - a pleasure to capture. So at long last - here are the portraits!

Marco and Sarah ~ Part 2 ~ The Ceremony

Sarah and Marco had a BEAUTIFUL day for their July wedding and I was SO honoured to photograph it! A big thank you to my extremely talented and amazing friend Shalea Priebe who came out all the way from BC to shoot this wedding with me (and so quickly after returning from East Africa). She got many of the awesome shots from the day! VERY fun portraits to come, keep an eye here, I'll post them soon...and don't forget to check out "Part 1" below.
A big congratulations to Marco and Sarah, and your beautiful son, as well! So happy for you.

Rusty & Erica

It was an honour for me to do a mini-shoot of my brother and his wife and their lovely girls while on family vacation last week. Erica is a talented photographer herself, (check out hers site here), and I know how exciting it is to be on the other side of the camera for a change. It was fun doing lots of couple shots, too!
Love you guys, it was so fun spending the last few weeks with you!

Urban Family Shoot

I so enjoyed spending the evening with this mother and children fam - what a lovely bunch! These beautiful children were so incredibly fun and sweet, and mom Amber even brought me an iced tea...that definitely puts her in the running for one of my best clients ever. ;)Enjoy the sneak peek and thank you for your patience, after a long and crazy month here they finally are!
