Lao and Harvey’s beautiful fall wedding was at the Sturgeon Valley Golf & Country Club.
When Harvey saw Lao for the first time in her dress, it brought tears to my eyes! These two are so in love and that just melts my heart:) These moments are what makes weddings so special, and I am so blessed to be able to capture them! Thank you so much Lao and Harvey!
These two are getting hitched!!
I am looking forward to next year, when these two have an intimate wedding in Edmonton with friends and family.
A river side photo shoot was perfect for this fun loving goofy couple! Getting these two to smooch was NO Problem, haha! I think they were even a little sad when it was all over! But not to worry, next year we will be taking LOTS of pictures together:)
Cool sisters + a cool location = awesome shoot!!
Talia and Kiana are two very beautiful TALL sisters:)
We went down to the North Saskatchewan River in Edmonton, and did a sisters session. I love sister sessions, reminds me of my sisters and how much we fought!! haha just kidding… a little:)
Family portraits are something I have been doing more and more of. Ever since our little man came along I know how important these pictures are. Having those memories up on your wall brings a smile to your face!
We had some fun in the sun blowing bubbles and laughing! Whether it was talking about chicken farts, and how it felt like a couples portrait session, it was pretty great!Thanks again Talia and Kiana for letting me capture the two of you:)
On April 5th we welcomed Gray Alexander into our lives, and things got a whole lot crazier!! :)
The emotions that hit me in the days to follow were very un expected. I was trying my best but couldn’t fight back the anxiety I felt. I was in pretty rough shape emotionally and was struggling to keep it together. I was shaming myself. That’s right shaming MYSELF! Why? Well it turns out I wasn’t that great at breastfeeding, and I sooo badly wanted to be GREAT at it! I struggled through pain, no sleep, soreness, anxiety attacks and tears. My poor little baby was doing his best to get what he needed, but there just wasn’t enough there.
So after a few weeks I cried through the decision to stop. And guess what, shit got sooo much better!! My emotions calmed, and I became more of myself again. Deciding to stop breast feeding was the best decision for me and my baby. I understand that breast feeding is the best way to nourish our little ones, trust me I have read ALL the articles, and I know ALL the benefits, I really wanted to be good at it, but I wasn’t expecting it to be sooo HARD, for me!
So with the support of Mr.Cheesy we switched to formula, our little guy is doing great, gaining weight in his gorgeous little thighs and cheeks:) and I am not a complete cry face mess!
At two months he is a smiley, loves listening to music and being held…a lot…maybe too much…but I don’t care, he will only be this little once:) So I will squish him and snuggle him as much as I want! He is the most amazing thing I have seen, and I will make sure to share with ALL of you his little face as he grows up to be a curious little man!!
Life is good with these two crazy dudes:)
Amanda’s Boudoir slideshow!
An outdoor Boudoir session in St.Albert! I love shooting outdoor Boudoir in the summer time! Just make sure to bring the bug spray! Those mosquitos can be a pain in the butt! Literally when your wearing so little :)
Joy is having a BABY GIRL!!
I love doing maternity portraits, there is just something special about being pregnant, and I get to capture it:) Which is pretty awesome!
This session was a little last minute, Joy was my hairstylist and makeup artist for another shoot I was doing! (fabulously talented, and located at Visions Salon and Spa in Saskatoon) She didn’t have a maternity photographer yet so we got together and did this session right down by the river. I love shooting by the river in Saskatoon, you can get super close without fearing of falling in haha!
Joy is super stylish and pretty much crazy photogenic! So naturally so is her baby bump:) I had a great time working with Joy and plan on doing more whenever I get back to Saskatoon!
Congrats on your beautiful baby girl! I am sure she will bring you so much Joy:)
Valentines Day is one of the busiest holidays for Boudoir. A gift a lot of women give to there significant other. But its not only that!
Sexy, empowered, strong, free, just simply amazing! These are just some of the words used to describe the experience my clients have. Which to me, is why I do it.
I know what it is like to feel gross, small, powerless and depressed about myself, its not a fun place to be. That voice in my head would prevent me from really feeling fabulous, and great about myself. Well I kicked that voices ass!!!! Don’t get me wrong, its still there, but I know how to deal with it now:)
Having a Boudoir/Glamour shoot is not going to fix this little voice in our heads, but it sure can give it a boost. We are all our own worst enemy, and I am looking to lighten that load. Giving myself a break and really focusing on what I love about myself. This is what I offer my clients. A chance to squash that voice with an amazing experience of self love, because we are all worthy!
A Boudoir/Glamour session gives you a chance to see yourself as I do and the people around you. Size doesn’t make us beautiful.
What is beautiful is a woman who cares enough about herself to treat herself with LOVE and respect! This Valentines Day, whether you are booking a Boudoir/Glamour session for your significant other or its just for you, just remember you will likely be addicted to the feeling of Self Love:)
Jesse is a friend of mine who happens to be a very inspiring Entrepreneur! I was so happy to do her head shots for her!
Jesse is Founder and CEO of L-Lash Bar, a successful eyelash extension company in Edmonton. Her store is amazingly beautiful and her product is premier. If you are looking for high quality lashes here in Edmonton, you have more than likely been directed to her shop.
Stay tuned for some big things coming from this lady in the future!! :)
