heidi and paul were married this past weekend and jana and i had a fabulous time sharing in their day! we experienced some crazy cool skies rolling in just as our photo session was ending and fortunately for all of us, made to the reception venue JUST before the skies opened up!
and now, while those of us here in edmonton are preparing ourselves for SNOW in the next few days, heidi and paul are sitting on a beach in the dominican, slathered in sunscreen and sipping coco locos... hope you having an awesome honeymoon guys -- enjoy the teasers!
i promised taylor and emmerson's momma a peek at her teasers by the end of the week, and whew -- i am sure cutting it close! i just adored spending the afternoon with this little family earlier this week and i LOVED capturing the interaction between the twins and mom and dad. it was so great to meet the four of you and i'll see you all saturday at bobbie and nick's wedding!!
i'd estimate that at least forty percent of my blog visitors aren't from canada, so i'll preface this by letting you all know its thanksgiving here this weekend!
now, onto the good stuff...
some of you may remember that i had mentioned going to calgary a few weeks back for a maternity session... well, what i neglected to mention was that it wasn't just any maternity session but one to showcase our own impending new arrival -- that's right, mark and i are expecting a little hanki in just a couple of months now!! (i guess it's about time i announced it HERE!) we couldn't be more excited abut the little one, and we jumped at the chance to meet with the fabulous jodi renee who hails from oakville, ontario when she was in calgary for a few days! we had an amazing afternoon trying to pretend that we know what we are doing on the other side of the camera ;) here are a handful of the awesome images she created, and you can see a whole bunch more on her blog.
needless to say, i have a LOT to be thankful for this year! between this soon-to-arrive new little member of our family and an uber successful year of amazing clients, friends and opportunities, i can definitely say 2008 has been one of my best years yet!! i can't wait to see what the next couple of months have in store for us, and even though my schedule is starting to slow down in preparation for maternity leave, if people are interested, i'll definitely stick around and keep updating the blog as i can. (i'll even have a few more maternity sessions to share from some other incredible photographers!!)
and while we're here chatting about things slowing down for my mat leave, i suppose i should give out some info regarding availability for 2009! of course my schedule is going to look a little different that it has for the past season, as i'll be cutting back on bookings to be sure to have lots of time for our growing little family. as it stands right now, i am booked up for weddings for the summer and have one opening each left in september, october, november and december of next year, so if you are planning a fall or winter '09 wedding and are interested in getting in touch with me, don't wait too long! i also have a waitlist going for '09 life sessions, and will start contacting those on the list when i open up my calendar for the spring, so do let me know if you'd like to be added to that as well!!
happy thanksgiving everyone!!
i've known natalie since... well, forever! our parents have been friends since long before either of us were born, so it was a real honour to get to be a part of such an amazing time in her life, and to photograph her and her fiance evan before i headed off to bc last week! these two are absolutely perfect for one another and i couldn't be happier for the two of them!! hope you enjoy the teasers guys, i can't wait to celebrate with you at your wedding in just a few months :)
i first met erin when she was a bridesmaid at sarah and sean's wedding back in june of last year and i was so excited when she contacted me about shooting her wedding next summer! chris is just as much fun as she is and i had a blast spending a couple of hours getting to know the two of them better and creating some awesome images at their engagement session a couple of weeks ago! this sneak peek is going up a little later than usual so i think i should just get on with the images -- enjoy!!
just popping in to post a quick blog from bc!
i met up with this adorable family about a week ago and we had a blast hanging out at the park! it ended up being pretty chilly outside (crazy unpredictable edmonton weather :P) but it was tons of fun nonetheless and i loved getting to know ellie and little sam.
alright, time to run -- i've got a ferry to catch! more new stuff to come when i get back to edmonton on next week!
