baby tristan | edmonton newborn photographer

Last summer, we shot a beautiful wedding for Miranda & Joe and let’s just say they didn’t waste any time getting a bun in the ol’ oven!  They welcomed Baby Tristan earlier this month and man oh man is he one perfect little baby.  He may have been a bit too perfect in fact, as he slept soundly through the entire shoot and I left having gotten not one single shot of his eyes open!  We even tried tickling him awake, but it seemed he was just determined to sleep through my whole visit!  Let’s hope he keeps up this trend for his parents’ sake 🙂  Here’s some of my favorites from their session~

Miranda is super crafty, and it showed in Tristan’s awesome rock themed nursery.

Miranda & Joe~  thank you so much for continuing to trust me with the milestones of your new life together.  You couldn’t have made a more beautiful baby.

Your friend,

baby austin | vancouver newborn photographer

These pictures of sweet baby Austin with his parents Mina and Rob bring me back to that beautiful Sunday afternoon I spent with them.  During our session, Mina and Rob made me feel more like Austin’s aunt dropping in for a visit than their photographer – that’s just their nature (and why I love them). Baby Austin was a star that day and not only let me document his very first laugh but also humoured his Dad’s “special” photo requests without any complaints! (some Harry Potter-themed shots that made Daddy Rob happy :)) Here are a few of my favorites from their session~

Mina and Rob ~   Thank you for allowing me to take a small part in this very precious moment in your lives and congratulations on your new beautiful family.

Lana Shipley Beautiful photos, Cheryl – as always! I got to see the HP/Canucks shots as well and they are great. Knowing them all, I really love how you truly caught all of their personalities in their shots (including Austin’s little smile in there in a few places).

monica & joe: engaged | edmonton wedding photographer

I know to most people, a windy day is nothing to get excited over but to a photographer shooting an engagement session it’s actually a bit awesome.  It adds an element of movement and romance that I just love and I find it so inspiring.  Monica & Joe drove down from Calgary for their shoot and we had an awesome time running around downtown Edmonton on this super windy day capturing them in a few sweet moments before they tie the knot in a month!   I had to resist the urge to blog each and every shot since I loved them all so much, and instead will just show you a few of my absolute favorites~

My favorite shot!  You two are just so incredibly beautiful.

Monica & Joe- you guys are too cute.  Love all the cuddling and I didn’t even have to ask you to 🙂

Some fun with off-camera flash in this quiet alley.  Love how the effect looks as if it was dark out even though it was pretty bright.  Thanks to my hubby for tagging along as “Light Boy” again 🙂

Monica & Joe~   You two were a total joy to photograph and I’m sooo excited to shoot your upcoming wedding!  I know it’s going to be a beautiful day.

sharon Ahhhh, I LOVE that windy shot too!!! Love the movement of her hair!!! I also love the variety of locations you’ve used, as well as that one shot where you framed them with the branches and the shadows from the branch. Brilliant.

May 27, 2011 - 11:49 am

katryna & tyler: engaged | vancouver wedding photographer

Well it’s that time of year that Cheryl sends me pretty pictures she’s taken from Vancouver and I’m jealous of what it looks like there– cherry blossoms are in bloom, the ocean is as blue as ever and Spring is in the air!

Here’s a gorgeous engagement session she shot with a super adorable couple, Katryna & Tyler.  These two were nervous to get in front of the camera but it seemed as though as soon as they did, they were clearly smitten and so perfectly comfortable being affectionate.   The result?  Genuine romance.  They’ll be jetting off to Cuba this fall for what’s sure to be an unforgettable wedding (can we come??) and we wish them nothing but love. Here’s some of our favorite shots from their session in Vancouver’s Yaletown neighborhood~

Katryna, does Tyler get lost in your eyes?  Because I do!

Tyler you’re not so shabby either!  Very handsome indeed.

Love these last 2 shots– you guys are toooo cute.

May 3, 2011 - 2:42 pm

Sharon I am never disappointed when I come here! My eyes are always treated with such eye candy!! Oh how I love cherry blossom and wish we had some here in Edmonton!! Beautiful session again ladies!!

May 4, 2011 - 12:13 pm

Sherry Tyler & Katryna – Incredible pictures. Katryna you are so beautiful I don’t think a bad picture could be taken of you! Love you two, Auntie Sherry

May 4, 2011 - 3:58 pm

Susan Nair You told me you were getting your engagement pics done but I didn’t think you would take my recommendation. I’m so glad you and Tyler got them done by Katch!!! They are fricken awesome!!! I wish I could get married again : )
