Helping Hands Art Exhibit

So a few weeks back I was contacted by Carie of Helping Families Handle Cancer, and she informed me that I had been chosen to be one of 100 local artists to be featured in their first annual Art Exhibit. I was needless to say ecstatic! Not only am I helping out a great cause but someone might actually outright purchase my art. I have actually never been to either an art show or The Big Rock Brewery and it was so fun! I ended up donating a portrait session and a framed photo of an old school truck and I was told that my photo went in the first 15 minutes!!! This was such an awesome experience and I am looking forward to helping out again next year!

Here is a photo of the awesome set-up of my Portrait session done by Carie of Helping Families Handle Cancer.

Calvin & Shayna

 We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day in Calgary at the begining of October! I guess summer just decided to show up a little later this year. I met Calvin & Shayna at a local park in Calgary and had so much fun! The colors in Calgary during the fall are just so yummy and Shayna & Calvin were total natural's in front of the camera! I now have to wait 9 whole months for their wedding, but for now here are a couple of my favorites from the day!

Kevin & Leah Sneak Peek

Kevin and Leah got married this past weekend and it was amazing! Here is a quick peek at a few from the day.


Curtis & Karyn The Real Deal!

 I can't even begin to explain how perfect Curtis and Karyn's Wedding Day was! Karyn was BEAUTIFUL and Curtis couldn't frown even it he tried! The whole day was pretty overcast with dark clouds, and not the light ones that threaten a sprinkle, these ones were threatening a torrential downpour, but this didn't matter because once we got to the location for the wedding party photos, the clouds just opened up and we had blue sky for the whole photo session!! Mark and I truly enjoyed every minute of your special day and felt like family! Thank you for everything! Here are only just a few of my favorites from their unforgettable day!

Laura & Paul Engagement

You might be thinking to yourself, we already saw this couple on their wedding day. Well because Laura and Paul lived in Ottawa before the Wedding and are now living in Korea we had a very small window for an engagement session. Regardless I couldn't let them get away without some casual photos of themselves, and by this time they were total pros! Here are a couple of my favorites!

Meet Scott & Sonja

I have been just itching to post these photos. I fell in love with this record wall quite a while ago and wanted to use if for photos for Mark and I but because that probably isn't going to happen anytime soon Scott and Sonja were kind enough to let me shoot them here and I'm so glad they did!!

I feel like a lot of my posts recently start with "I know so-and-so from high school" and yes here is another one!! Scott and I went to High School together, and he and Sonja are getting married next year. It is actually a little weird how many little webs we have found in which we know each other or friends of friends or even family!! It really is a very small world! We were lucky enough to have a couple of nice days string together to get out before winter and snap some photos of this ridiculously good looking couple and even Norman too! He brought his A-game and sometimes just snuck his cute little puppy face in the background.

Here are just a few of my favorites, enjoy!!

Sonja's friend did an amazing job on her make-up!!

I couldn't resist posting this one, Norman was just sitting so nicely all by himself.
