Eddy

Have you ever had someone on your instagram that you just secretly admire from afar? Of course you do. We all have people on our social media that we admire, whether it be for their clothing, their lifestyle, or maybe they just always have the best memes. For me, that person is Eddy. I have been following Eddy for a year or so now, admiring his personal style and how everything he wears just makes him look effortlessly cool. Every time he would post a new photo I found myself thinking ‘I’d love to photograph him’. So I finally worked up the courage to slide into the DM’s and ask him if he’d want to meet up for a photoshoot. The results were nothing less then unreal!

Shout out to Eddy for being so unbelievably photogenic and for taking time out of a busy summer schedule to meet up with me!

Donut styled shoot

Everyone who knows me knows I love a good donut, shopping local and photography; combine all three and it’s a dream collaboration!

This partnership all got started when I posted an image on my instagram of me with a donut from The Everyday Kitchen. Katie, (the owner and baker at The Everyday Kitchen), contacted me to see if I’d be interested in doing some photos for her Instagram. I’d be crazy to say ‘no’ right?!

The Everyday Kitchen is a small local business in Regina which specializes in sourdough donuts with all the flavours and toppings being homemade as well. These donuts are to DIE for. Seriously, when Katie does a popup sometimes you have to elbow people out of the way just to get in line. Worth it every time.

This latest session I had so much fun with, I thought I’d share the end results with you all!

R&C engagement

When I first saw that Cameo and Robb had started dating I thought to myself, ‘now there’s a perfect match!’ So when I got a text one day from Cameo saying, “I have news to tell you!” I knew right away Robb had popped the question!

These two are seriously so sweet! I loved watching from behind the lens as Robb would tease Cameo, making her laugh and just seeing the big smiles they have for each other. Hearing the story of their first date was too adorable. Robb took Cameo out to supper at the Fireside Bistro, they were both so nervous and wanted to impress each other. (I’m not to sure if it was Robb or the mushroom linguini that won Cameo’s heart first 😉 )

I’m so excited for you two and I wish you more than the best

D&L engagement

Over the past year it has been so awesome being roomies with Laura. Although her engagement to Damen means I must say goodbye to the luxury living at the condo -rip rooftop hot tub- I can 100% say I am beyond ecstatic for Damen and Laura!!

Naturally I was very excited that Laura asked me to do their engagement photos, and they made my job easy breezy, being so cute and natural together. It was so lovely to photograph this dreamy couple.

It has been so awesome getting to know Damen and Laura better and see first hand what an awesome team they make, being able to put together a wedding in two months is testament to that alone! You guys are such a sweet couple and I so look forward to sharing the same city as you two!

not all who wander are lost. 

It’s that time again when the moving trucks arrive, all our belongings are packed and we move onto another new exciting place. New adventures. New friends. New places to explore. Lots of stress. Lots of excitement. All mixed into a few months.
This summer my family is packing up and moving to the Portland, OR. Wayne got a great faculty position at a small university…so if anyone is looking to geek out and take a biology course…I know a great (and super cute) prof. We will do our best to ‘Keep Portland Weird’!
Melissa and her squad are headed off to sunny Palm Springs, CA. David got a great hospital management job down there, so if anyone needs…oh wait…his job is similar to Chandler Bing…no one knows what he ACTUALLY does…but it’s very important, I’m sure. I am anxiously awaiting the gorgeous photos Melissa will take and hopefully post here of the beautiful and unique scenery down there.

Vanessa is slaying it in Regina (although we keep pestering her and Erica about moving down here!). She has full-time work at the hospital as a Cytotechnologist, great friends and an amazing closet of clothes! I’m pretty sure her part-time job is trying out coffee shops and brunching….who’s jealous!? I AM!!!!
