amanda, evanie & noa | Rocky Mountain Family Photographer

Sometimes when you have close photographer friends that feel the weight of having growing children slipping through their fingers as much as you do, you just take a trip out to the mountains, brave the cold (well compared to the temperatures the past few weeks, this was summer lol), and hold your kids as close as you can. Amanda and I traded session back in October and it was so great to finally get a chance to photograph her and her two sweet little ladies.

When I take these types of images, I take them with the children in mind. These images are not just for us as parents but for our children, our children’s children and so on. Think for a minute about an image of you and your mom (or dad), does it exist? I don’t have many from when I was very small but oh how I cherish the few that I do have. I want my kids to know what I looked like at every age; when I was pregnant, or a new mom complete with bags under my eyes and that soft squishy belly or when I was fresh faced and basking in the glow of my boys.

I need to prove that I existed.

That I was there.

I want them to have these images to look back on, to try and remember that very day and how extraordinarily ordinary it was.

Do you hate pinterest for some reason? I always want to pin your images but of course, because they're a massive long reel, I can't. :( Love seeing them, but ugh.

    lol it would seem like it hey? haha I find that pining only one image doesn't really tell the story - and honestly, its so much easier to compile and upload one photo vs uploading 30-40

a bit of nostalgia
When I was a kid, I went to a small school called Bastion Elementary. On May long weekend, while we were in BC, I decided to get Jensen out of the house for a bit and we ended up down the road from my parents at Bastion. The forest. This place is the home of a lot of good memories. My Trolls and My Little Ponies spent ample time playing house in the roots of those big cedars. Recess was full of races to see who could get the whatever was the coolest thing at the time, the swings were always a hot ticket item and usually won by the grade 7's. I hadn't been to this forest in many, many years....a flood of images from my past sprang to the ...

So the past two weeks has been a little crazy...Lucas went to Finland to the Helsinki Tattoo Convention and then over to Denmark to get tattooed by his good friend/mentor Henning at Royal Tattoo. It was also spring break from Jensen's day home so needless to say, I was not spending too much time on the computer haha. I really enjoyed all the quality time I got to spend with my boys but I missed Lucas a ton and am very happy to have him home :). While he was gone my parents flew up for a much overdue visit and although the weather was complete crap, we took advantage of it by staying in curled in cozy quilts, watching movies ...

I saw a quote the other day that really resonated with me...this explains perfectly why I am moving farther away from digital... "Shooting Digital is like marrying that sensible girl - the one that went to Wellesley, from a good family and wears well made comfortable shoes. Sure, in many respects she'll make a good wife, but after a while the marriage might feel a little hollow. On the other hand, shooting film would be like marrying a flaky artist. She's quirky and maddeningly disorganized. She can't be trusted with a credit card or to pick the kids up from soccer practice on time. But she's just a beautiful person inside and out and makes ...
