Hey y’all.  I’m not from Texas, I just love saying that.  And it’s a fun way to start a post, mmm-kay?  I am from Alberta, which some say is the Texas of Canada, but I digress.  I’m writing this post for a couple reasons.  Number one, because December 1st marks the six-month anniversary of my […]

Six Months Later & Our Own Family Film

This film is extra special to me, because mom Kristen was technically my first family film client.  She messaged me and booked instantly about 37 seconds after I had announced that I was offering family films back in January of this year.  I knew she wanted exactly what I was envisioning in my head for […]

Snow Family Film – May 2019 | Drayton Valley Photographer & Family Filmmaker

  We are undeniably fortunate to have the opportunity to spend a few days in Palm Springs every winter with my in-laws.  If you live in Alberta, you know the winters can be brutally cold and snowy.  Our family has been incredibly lucky to be able to escape the chilly weather with this annual trip […]

A love letter to my kids – February 23, 2019| Drayton Valley Family Filmmaker

I’m over the moon in love with this sweet little family.  They contacted me about a session to document some family time with their little boys.  Their birthdays are within two weeks of each other, and with the youngest turning one and the oldest turning three, it was a special time that they wanted photos […]

Pylatuk Family Photos and Mini-Film – January 27, 2019 | Drayton Valley Family Filmmaker

If you’ve had children, I want you to think back to when they arrived earth-side.   You know that feeling the first time you see them, the first time they’re placed in your arms…when your entire body fills with looooooooooove, when you want to laugh and cry and smile and squeeeeze them all at the same […]

Goertzen Family Keepsake Film – January 12, 2019 | Drayton Valley Family Filmmaker

Well helloooooooooo!  It’s been a while, but the world’s most inconsistent photography blogger has a new post 😉  And this one was created in record time…I mean it, less than a month after our session I’ve got this family’s photos blogged?!  What?  I actually don’t think that’s ever happened.  But these photos and the story […]

T Family Documentary Session – September 25, 2018 | Drayton Valley Documentary Photographer

I have to confess that this “client” is one of my favourites (he happens to be my adorable little nephew).  As you can see from the date in the title, he’s currently a little older than he was in these photos, but what’s a year and a half delay between taking photos and blogging them?  […]

Baby J Newborn Documentary Session – June 25, 2016 | Drayton Valley Documentary Photographer

I can’t overstate how much I enjoy the company of this family.  They’re such a laid back and relaxed group, and it felt like we were a perfect fit for each other.  We’ve done a few session together now, but my friendship with them started waaaay back before any of us parents had kids.  We […]

B Family Documentary Session – September 17, 2017 | Drayton Valley Family Photographer

This photo session began with a Christmas present from the three adult children to their parents.  They purchased a gift card for the photos last Christmas, and we finally caught up with each other by mid-summer.  They chose to document a few hours at the family cabin, which happened to be located near a gorgeous […]

S Family Cabin Lifestyle Session – July 8, 2017 | Drayton Valley Documentary Photographer

It turns out that documentary sessions (mine, at least) tend to involve horses.  From newborn to family sessions, so many of my clients over the last year have requested a photo session on their own acreage or farm, and the majority of them have included these giant hoofed animals.  I am happy to oblige to […]
