Well I have to say that it was super exciting getting to photograph a fellow redhead! The second half of the Grad photo session was at the beautiful Tuscan Gardens in Abbotsford. What a wonderful setting and so much colour my eyes were hurting. These two were so fun to hang out with and also their family and friends that were all watching close by. No pressure haha! It was a beautiful day of celebration and I was glad I got too take part in a small piece of their special day. Happy Grad 2019!
So I arrived expecting to take some portraits of the fine young man in the orange tie and arrived to what looked like a car show going on. How cool was that? A couple of his buddies came over with cars and we had an epic mini shoot. But this was just the beginning. There were a few more hours ahead of us and we had more places to go and people to meet! Check out Part Deux!
I was so excited when Kristina asked if I could do their Engagement photos! These two have been through a lot living literally on opposite ends of Canada and maintaining a beautiful (but I’m sure challenging) long distance relationship. This was the week he came to pick her up and take her back to Saskatchewan to prepare for their wedding day. She not only moved to Saskatoon but they had their wedding in Ontario! These guys have such a huge heart for people and ministry. They are incredible in so many ways and I am grateful to have had the chance to really get to know Kristina over the past couple of years. I am looking forward to many more years of friendship and I am excited to see where these two are headed! I pray for every wonderful blessing that they could possibly hope for, as they begin this journey together.
What I absolutely love as a photographer, is getting to see the families grow each time I see them. It’s usually a year or more between photos, so to see the changes and growth is sometimes shocking. To see little Henry go from being just a new born to this curious bundle of squishy cheeked goodness was so awesome. Thanks for letting me capture this special day!
As I said, I think I’ve started a thing lol! I decided to set up my portable studio at home and create a space for doing portraits. I was so excited to be able to do headshots for Sade’s book that she’s written. She was also able to use these for promotional materials and for conferences that she speaks at. It was a privilege to serve her and to see the end result. You are such a beauty inside and out Sade! Thank you for trusting me with this project!
So I had an inquiry about doing some studio shots. It was for the lovely artist Emily Copeland. She needed a portrait for the gallery in New York that is displaying her pieces. Pretty darn cool eh? I think I’ve started something haha! I really enjoyed taking my portable studio on location and spending time getting to know her and seeing some of her Art Work. It truly is stunning and she is incredibly gifted. Check out her website at www.emilycopelandartistry.com, she’s pretty amazing!
My dear friend had a birthday and in celebration we took photos! It became quite the family affair and we had so much fun laughing and being silly. When you see families joking around and playing together you really get a sense of their hearts. So much laughter and teasing going on. They definitely love each other a lot. Thanks for letting me share in this day!
So before this lovey lady went back to Atlanta Georgia, we were able to get a quick “Canadian in the woods” photo session done. We had a blast and to say that she is greatly missed would be an understatement. Thanks for letting me capture you on camera and thanks for how you loved all us Canucks up here!
