Calgary Maternity Photographer :: Warkentin

Calgary Maternity Photographer :: Warkentin

Trina and Tyler are awaiting the arrival of their first baby!! We headed out on a beautiful winter day to grab some belly photos, and Trina has the roundest belly ever!!! The beautiful coral colour of her shirt stood out perfectly against the bright snow.

Their 2 French Bulldogs, Jorge and Mosleigh, were perfectly attentive to having their photos taken! Trina says they may have some difficulty adjusting to not being the center of attention once the baby arrives, but I think they’re going to be perfect fur-siblings.

I cannot wait to meet this little one in just over a month!!!

Calgary Wedding Photographer Gets Engaged Herself!

Calgary Wedding Photographer Gets Engaged Herself!

Did you know that December is the most popular month for an engagement to occur? I’m glad my fiancee didn’t know that when he was planning our elaborate engagement, because he told me that he wouldn’t have done it in December! But he did.

And. It. Was. Perfect!!!

Jason knows, being a photographer, having lasting images is SO important to me. So he planned out a tonne of details and made sure to have someone present to capture the whole thing.

So what happens when a photographer gets engaged? Take a look at this!

Jason set me up on a fake photo shoot with our beautiful, wonderful, awesome, amazing friend Dawn Ives. She totally had me fooled that she wanted to learn her camera a bit better, so she came along with me on the shoot, and I set up her camera settings and gave her a few quick tips. “The Couple” I was photographing conveniently brought along a series of signs stating things like “I knew it was Love from Day One”. We went through various poses with their sweet signs, until I read a sign that just had my name on it……..

Engagement-001I am looking at the sign totally confused, so I start looking around for Dawn to get an answer. I was shocked to see someone walking up behind me…..

Calgary_Wedding_Photographer_Gets_Engaged-2There was Jason, walking up behind me in a suit with flowers in his arms, and I was totally baffled. I asked him why he was there, to which he responded “You didn’t read the last sign”….So I spun around and “The Couple” were holding another sign

Calgary_Wedding_Photographer_Gets_Engaged-3Calgary_Wedding_Photographer_Gets_Engaged-4The Sign read: “Will You Marry ME?”

Then the tears started….

Someone magically got my camera out of my hands at some point.

He got down on one knee and asked for my hand.



I remember vividly that I knew that I needed to force out the word “Yes” somewhere in there.


Jason put this stunning ring which he tediously designed on my hand. My. Heart. Melted.

It was a moment that I will never forget, but more than that, I am so over the moon excited that I have images to help us remember it forever!!!

What next? Well of course I did what any wedding photographer would do…..The ring and I had a little mini-photo shoot!



Having these photos has reminded me how special it is for all of us to “Catch the Moments” that are near and dear to our hearts. An image gives you a unique way to share with the world, while preserving a moment in time.

I am so excited to be sharing the wedding planning process with my couples this year, and I look forward to being the photographer to Catch the Moment for my special clients in the year ahead!

2013 Year in Review

2013 Year In Review

WOW! I cannot believe that year flew by. I had the pleasure of photographing so many wonderful people!!

From anticipation of soon to be parents, to the first days into meeting their babies; Growing families wanting to document their year, to puppies adopted into a new home; To women finding some self confidence for a sexy shoot; and of course lots of wonderful couples allowing me to spend the most precious moments of their wedding day with them; This past year has been truly amazing and such a blessing to me.

2014 is already looking like it is going to be such a great year. I already have lots of weekends booked for engagements and subsequent weddings. I look forward to working with all the couples getting married this year! There is still availability for 2014 if you’re still looking, please get in touch with me ASAP to arrange a consultation as I am booking up quickly!

There are also some patient parents-to-be awaiting the arrival of their little bundles of joy and I look forward to the opportunity to do these babies first photographs!

This year will be a little different for myself as well as I got engaged over the holidays too! So it will be a different experience for me to go through the planning process with each of my couples, hopefully with a better understanding of some of the stresses my couples are going through, and allowing me to know how I can better help my valued clients as well.

I am SO looking forward to every moment I get to spend behind the camera this year, collecting the snapshots of your life, “Catching The Moments”, and building lasting relationships with each of you.


Thank You All for a brilliant 2013, I hope to see you again in 2014!



And Thank You for your continued support of local business!
