Introducing the 2016 roster for Flurry – Edmonton’s women’s ultimate team:
Erin, Willem, Amber, and Andrew: Over ten years, two weddings, two new grandparents, and four beautiful blonde granddaughters later, it’s been a terrific journey photographing this family…
It was great to see Katie & Ron and all their family again for an early spring photo shoot. When my kids were much younger, we used to attend their Christmas cookie parties. Now they have their own little kids, and I think it should be my turn to host a cookie party soon…
Here is Part II of Sarah & Stephen’s wedding celebration, as they hosted their reception events here in Edmonton earlier this spring. It was a lovely weekend celebrating the fusion of two terrific families – as always, a spectacle for the eyes and many wonderful spontaneous moments. Congratulations S & S! A pleasure working with you again!
I know it’s been awhile – lots of stuff still happening behind the scenes and to be honest, I was hoping to have the new website up and running before posting any new content. Alas, that project is taking longer than expected, so you’ll just have to wait on that.
In the meantime, here are some of my favorite shots from an engagement shoot I did with Amenah and Mustafa on Valentine’s Day. We started off downtown, and then got to play around with some of the neat lighting that was going on at Hawrelak Park during the Silver Skate Festival. Amenah, being an Edmontonian, is more than used to the cold white stuff, but I have to say I was impressed with Mustafa’s who, visiting from California, was more than willing to put up with the cold and my whimsical ways. Thanks again for your patience – I hope the pictures were worth the chilly feet!
Back to the autumn again for a moment and a change of pace – here’s a handful of faves from a quick shoot I did with Crystal with her horse out at Jackson Homsteaders. Thanks Crystal for braving the chilly autumn breeze!
And here we are with the last of the portraits before the snow fell, a wonderful family session with Monica and family. Not only was little Nor Nor a treat to follow around with the lens, but by the end she was taking a turn behind the camera herself – I’m pretty sure she was the one who snapped the final photos of the day with my camera. A few of my faves from the session:
Kara and I go way back and it was a trip down memory lane as I dropped into her old Patricia Heights stomping grounds to take photos of her extended family and her new little boy Ben. Edmonton’s ravine system once again graced us with a scenic autumn backdrop, and although it took nearly until the end of the shoot, we finally managed to catch Ben smiling for a shot. Great to see you and your family again and get to meet the little guy!
What’s terrific about Edmonton’s river valley is even after all the leaves have fallen from the trees, the colours still remain beautiful in the autumn. So with the weather and colours cooperating, the hardest part of the shoot turned out to be finding a date and time that worked for the six busy schedules of Gloria and Brent’s family. Thankfully we were able to squeeze in a quick session just down the street from their home. A handful of faves from the session:
Here’s a handful from a literal family shoot with Veronica + Duncan + Allison + Lauren. I love being able to walk down to the river valley for shoots – I just hope the girls were okay with the eight thousand dogs that came up to visit us during the shoot!
