Hey Edmonton!!!

You’ll notice a few changes over the coming weeks, mainly that I’ll no longer be living on Vancouver Island! We’ll officially be Edmonton residents as of November 1st (ish) and ready to work! You will also notice a new website and maybe a new logo while I’m at it :) Lots of changes coming!

As many of you already know, I have cancer, and as such have a compromised immune system. For this reason I ask that you be diligent about rescheduling your sessions if there’s ANY hint of illness in the household, even if that person won’t be present for the session. If someone arrives sick the session will likely be reschedule as me getting sick would result in some significant downtime for me.

On that note, I’ll be taking on-location and outdoor sessions for portrait, head shots, personal branding, and boudoir. I will also have a studio at my disposal as requested until I have my own space up and running. To book a studio session I need at least 2 weeks notice to find a suitable studio.

Holiday mini sessions - These will be happening mid-November on a soon to be announced date! I will have 2 set options available and will be announcing these shortly! See the images below for the set options.

Stay tuned for all the details! I can’t wait to reconnect with all of my awesome Edmonton clients again!

Holiday Schedule!

Hey ladies & gents! Just a quick announcement this morning! 

This is my upcoming holiday schedule. As you can see there are very limited appointments left for weekends so if you absolutely must have a weekend appointment you need to get in touch as soon as possible to book it. These are going fast. I will try to update this list as spots are taken but no promises.


December 6th is the last day to get your session in with time to print & mail out photos for the holidays. Canada Post mail deadline is December 17th for mailing within Canada.

Sessions completed by December 6th will have images back on December 14th. Turnaround time on sessions is typically 2 weeks but I'm working hard to get them done faster so you can have them in time to mail out.

December 15th is the last day that I will guarantee images in time for Christmas. If your session is shot after the 15th and you require them in time for Christmas there may be a $50 rush fee to have images completed in time.

***Island Daily Deal Customers***
Don't forget that your coupons expire December 31st! The easiest, and fastest way to reach me right now is via e-mail, here on the FB page or via text message at 250-607-7562. Please be aware that it's just me and while I will do my best to get back to you if you call me, it may take me a couple days to do so. I highly recommend using one of the other contact methods listed smile emoticon

WEATHER - Please understand that I do not shoot in the rain. I understand that we live on the coast and it is winter but I promise you that you will not love your photos if we shoot in the rain. Nobody looks good when they're soaking wet smile emoticon

As far as romantic spots for photos go, Neck Point is still one of my favorites, particularly the one small beach with the lagoon. Don't quote me on this, but I think it's called Sunset Beach. You've probably seen this spot quite a bit on this blog lol It's the perfect rocky beach with the evergreen forest in the background, the gorgeous green water and the perfect selection of driftwood.
