Hanna Family

Hanna Family

Lynn received quite a pleasant surprise when her daughter informed her that for her birthday, I would be joining them camping and that they would all get family pictures taken. This family hadn’t taken any family pictures for approximately 12 years before this! They had a good time, showed off the new family tattoo that they had all recently gotten, and got their feet a little wet. The only unfortunate thing about this photoshoot was that their eldest daughter couldn’t…

Sharpley Family

Sharpley Family

I have been friends with the Sharpley family for years so when they invited me out to their ranch for some family pictures I was thrilled! Petra’s parents were out visiting from England so even though it was rainy, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to get together to snap a couple quick pictures of the family… and their pets!   

Nielsen Family

Nielsen Family

Last summer (yes, I’ve unfortunately gotten lazy updating my website so I’m finally uploading photos from MONTHS ago) I had the pleasure to photograph the Nielsen family! It was a beautiful and warm summer day, the lawn was perfectly manicured and ideal for pictures, and their matching teal, pink, and navy blue outfits looked perfect together! We spent about an hour rolling around in the grass, laughing as we attempted to get the kids to pose, and just having a…

Do you remember the video I made about the adorable little kid who raises and breeds birds? ( If not please watch it here, I promise it’s adorable. “Flocking Birds” ) Well his family asked me back out to their farm to take family pictures of their family, and their daughters families. It was a bit of a nippy day however the family looked so good and the pictures turned out great.   I used my Canon 7D camera and…

Friends in the Snow

Friends in the Snow

Last November I received a call from a friend who was in my class in high school, she was looking to do a photo shoot with a few of her nursing friends who had just graduated from nursing school. So one snowy day I made my way out to her new home to photograph these four beautiful and smart ladies. They had clothes scattered everywhere with several outfit changes in mind. Although they looked cute I did feel sorry for…

Sarah Wolfs Show Jumping

Sarah Wolfs Show Jumping

Last October I had the pleasure of accompanying Sarah Wolfs to the Oktoberfest show jumping competition at Spruce Meadows in Calgary. Her horse Denny was unfortunately suffering from some pain and kept refusing to jump the higher jumps while she was actually showing, however he would tackle some of the lower jumps while practicing. And let me say, together they looked magnificent flying through the air. Here are a few frames from that shoot.   I used my Canon 7D camera…

Higher and Higher- Queen Of Hearts

Higher and Higher- Queen Of Hearts

Last minute phone calls from Justice Brooks about last minute photo shoots seem to be the new norm for our professional relationship. This time I found myself photographing the up-and-coming, seriously handsome men of a local Edmonton band, Higher and Higher. The band includes the ultra talented musicians — Robbie Mcweeny, Mack Greening, Riley Witiw, Derek L’Hirondelle, and Sean Torgalson. I had only heard of them before from Justice, who had shot a previous music video of theirs, but whilst my…

Amy Andrew

A road trip up to Red Deer, Alta. to visit my good friend Justice Brooks ended up with getting hooked into a photo-shoot featuring Zaffar Hassan’s red Subaru WRX STI and a very fluid, sexy, and professional model Amy Andrew. After spending a couple hours in the morning scouting for locations and drinking our fill of caffeine, we were off with Zaffar and Amy to the first location to capture both motion and still footage. Four hours later after the last of…

Hillhurst/ West Hillhurst Portrait Project

Hillhurst/ West Hillhurst Portrait Project

I must say, this is embarrassingly late. As a final project for a portrait class we were given an assignment to cover one community in Calgary and to make a portrait of a stranger every week for nine weeks to show what that community is like and the kind of people who work and live in the area. I was drawn the communities of Hillhurst and West Hillhurst which worked perfectly for me as they run just south of SAIT…

Bighorn Sheep in Jasper

Bighorn Sheep in Jasper

During a family trip to Jasper we were stuck in a 20 car traffic jam caused by three ewes, their three lambs, and a ram. Now coming from where I come from and having respect for wildlife I felt slightly ashamed to have gotten out of my car to take pictures of these creatures, but hey, until all other cars cleared out we couldn’t have gotten past the animals anyway to better make the best of it. There are many…
