Delaney Grad Session| May 2015

To be a star, you must shine your own light, follow your own path, and don’t worry about the darkness, for that is when the stars shine brightest.” ~ Napoleon Hill

This beautiful girl came into my life when she was just small. I became her ‘second’ mom as I cared for her while her parents worked. Typically shy and quiet much of her life, we enjoyed many fun and fabulous times together but as she reached the stage where she wanted to spread her wings more we spent less and less time together. We connected at family events and gatherings and then one day she was part of the adult conversations at those gatherings, part of the laughter, part of the sharing of life lessons… even contributing to those conversations.
She has grown into an incredible young woman. She is more outgoing, witty and charming. A smart girl with a good head on her shoulders. She has a plan and excited about what lies ahead. I could not be more proud of this beautiful woman.
Congratulations Delaney on your graduation!


Keegan’s Graduation, Olds College | Personal

Sometimes I still find it hard to decide what I would like to be when I grow up.  Lol

Keegan on the other hand know what she’d like to do… she’d like to work with animals and her goal was to get into the Animal Health Technician Program at Olds College but she missed the deadline with her application and rather than take a year off she decided that the perfect compliment to the AHT Program would be the 1 year VMR (Veterinary Medicine Receptionist) Program. Today she graduated honors with distinction. I could not be more proud. She maintained a GPA that granted her a seat in the AHT Program this fall.

Way to go Keegan!!

Madison’s Senior Session | Calgary and Area Photographer

We booked a double session.

A double session to make sure we had enough time to work with her beautiful horse, JJ plus a couple outfit changes. We armed ourselves with a beautiful location and the weather was outstanding but the mosquitoes were out in full force!! Madison’s mumma came prepared though… bug spray for both us and JJ (definitely much appreciated).

We drove down to our shoot location while Madison walked her horse and once she arrived it was clear that JJ was excited to eat up all the dandelions and explore. The photoshoot was not high on JJ’s priority list. When we started feeling the frustration creep in we were able to walk it off and let go of expectations… especially JJ. All the while capturing some candid and beautiful moments among the ones we tried to ‘set up’. It was an awesome evening and I am grateful that we set aside the time to be able to just enjoy the whole experience.

On a side note… I was lucky enough to walk JJ while Madison changed outfits, I hadn’t realized how much I missed being with these beautiful creatures. I certainly enjoyed the moment.

I look forward to capturing more of this duo. You are a dynamite together!!

Congratulations on your graduation, Madison.
