Dalyce in the Fall

I can't get enough of her:) What a cutie, and she's talking like I can't believe now! It makes it really fun to photograph her now that she can talk to me. About a month ago she used to say the odd thing but now she says everything! Shay and Lorne, she's a darling, and I can't wait for the next one! She'll be such a great big sister, teaching the baby all her little sneaky tricks. You just wait:)

Whoa Dog!

This is not an exaggeration, this is a large dog. Wow, and such a nice dog too, he's just a big baby. I'm actually kind of afraid of dogs, but recently I've been able to interact with dogs and photograph them with the help of Sherry the owner of Scruffy's Dog Grooming in Drayton Valley. I just love seeing the personality in all of these images with Brucie, the gentle St. Bernard. He is well loved and a pleasure to be around! Scruffy's does an incredible job on keeping this dog well groomed too, I couldn't keep from petting him:)

Arianna: A Cute 1 Year Old:)

Cute stuff Arianna! I drive myself crazy trying to get toddlers to look at me, let alone smile at me. Usually if they are smiling it's because mom is standing behind me and they happened to discover something new and looked at their mom excitedly. I can dance on my head, yell, scream, do whatever, and there comes a point in every session, that the one-year-old kid just won't look at me anymore. I try to leave before this happens, but sometimes I can't resist trying for one more:)

Poor kittens;) She loves them so much, and they were adorable for the pictures. I could see the fear in their eyes when they saw her coming. She's so adorable.

Amanda & Chad: September 6, 2008

Some people might recognize this great looking couple from an engagement shoot I posted on Flickr a while back, the couple that I led into the woods to an old abandoned house, only to be savaged by nasty fleas. I thought seeing these guys again, would bring back bad memories of that, but it didn't even cross my mind. I couldn't help but be so excited for the two of them to be married, and they looked amazing! Thanks Amanda and Chad for having me again, even after what I put you through. I had so much fun, and I can't wait for our next session;)

August 30, 2008 Wedding: Trisha and Doug

This ceremony took place at the Devonian gardens, and yes it was beautiful. Awesome to photograph, surrounded by beautiful landscapes especially in the Japanese Gardens!

It was such a unique and beautiful wedding with a Japanese theme. They also had a ring exchange with their son Darris, which I cried during. Darris got a really cool custom ring from his parents, it's the one with the shark. It was really nice along with that, they did a butterfly release which turned out really cool.

Although I don't do receptions I had a blast at Trisha and Doug's reception, and they did as well, riding in on mini dirt bikes. It was hilarious. They got a really great DJ, who made the party super fun, Doug had to wear a sombrero, and colourful Mexican shirt sleeves and everyboby made a line behind him and the whole place was following Doug. It was priceless. Thank-you so much Doug and Trisha, for having me photograph your wedding. It was as much fun as it looks:)
