Love from previous Attendees:

“I feel so empowered after completing this course and was beyond excited to go out and shoot, meet with clients, and push myself to a new level. These lessons brought tears to my eyes on numerous occasions because it made me understand how “normal” some of the things we go through, are. I’m so thankful for the time I had in this course and look forward to putting it to practice.”

– Jennifer Christensen

“Jayme’s course was a blessing in disguise. While I was searching for new information I found inspiration and a new fire within that made me want to pick up my camera. After Jayme’s course I feel inspired and I’m loving my work more than I ever have. ” 

– Jenna Hobbs

“The workshop was packed full or content that I had hoped for. I found each lesson built so well onto each other and together combined to be a treasure of content. It was nice having daily lessons that helped focus each day and was exciting to look forward to. I learnt as much as I had anticipated and then some. I loved how it wasn’t just about family photography but about the business of being a professional family photographer, as well as focusing on myself personally. It wasn’t a generic workshop, it was a workshop that has helped me grow personally as well. It was so great realizing that I am not the only photographer who struggles with being shy – and learning how to be confident and value myself and my time (and family time) despite that. Being part of such a wonderful group of other photographers who have similar struggles also helped me feel more encouraged”

– Liesel Sanday

shop the skinny | alberta brand photographer

The boys and I set out to the mountains at the beginning of November to enjoy one of the last – and very unusual – warm days of the year (it was 14C degrees that day!) for one of our favourite shops in Edmonton, Shop The Skinny! We stayed at one of our favourite places in Dead Man’s Flats and it has the cutest little abandoned cabin & windmill ever. I’ve been wanting to photograph the boys here forever and now was the perfect opportunity!

After lunch we zipped up the mountain to spray lakes and pulled over at the absolutely most gorgeous location. It was so perfect….the crisp smell of the trees and fresh snow…..I could believe how quiet it was, not a sound but the wind through the trees. Then out of nowhere appeared a little whisky jack….and then three more….then another four! I had no idea they were so friendly and then came right over and jensen was able to feed a few of them. He was thrilled!

moraine lake elopement | rocky mountain elopement photographer

I think I have found a new love. Elopements are such a beautiful intimate setting for two people to share their vows and express their love for one another. Why not save a ton of money and plan an adventure in the mountains (or wherever!) with just the two of you or only the closest of family members?! Well, and me of course 😉

Dust & Kitty traveled all the way from Hong Kong for photos at Moraine Lake! While they technically got married a few months prior, they did not have a photographer at their wedding. Dust is a fellow tattooer and a good friend of my husbands, so when he emailed me and asked if I would photograph their “elopement” I was thrilled!

It was a moody rainy day in September and the clouds and light rain made it that much more intimate. They cuddled under a big plaid (obviously) blanket and then decided to take a chance and get in the water….yikes! It was terribly cold but they didn’t complain once.

Congrats to you guys and can’t wait to see you again this summer!

aliesha & ryan | emerald lake elopement

Aliesha and Ryan’s intimate elopement at Cathedral Mountain Lodge was a DREAM – seriously, if you’re looking for a gorgeous place to elope in the mountains, they offer an amazing package! And I would love to photograph it, of course 😉 – Cozy cabins, close family, and the most perfect parting of rain clouds for their ceremony (it seriously rained the entire morning and stopped just for the ceremony and formals – talk about lucky!)

I immediately clicked with these two when we first met in November 2015. Aliesha is a budding photographer (who recently took my Embracing the Chaos Class and is KILLING it) that is also introverted like me, so we were meant to work together haha. We bonded over our love for dogs and photography. She is a gem and Ryan is just the sweetest guy. They are definitely made to be together.

If you are looking to plan an elopement in 2017 please click this link for all the information regarding my services 🙂

2016 | A year of acceptance

Each year I am blown away by my clients, their willingness to allow me to create memories that will be forever kept and passed down to the wee ones they are squeezing and tickling in each of those images. Sometimes this passion is so strong that it hurts to think about and makes my heart heavy.

truth bomb in 3…2…1…

This year was an incredibly difficult season for me mentally. Having anxiety and being introverted is tough in this craft and I have definitely struggled this year with balancing the constant overwhelming feeling of doubt and my fear of emails and replying to people via social media – please tell me i’m not the only one that is terrified of emails?!?!? For some reason it almost seems shameful that I let my anxiety win but with 2016 drawing to a close I have taken initiative to better myself and my business this coming year by choosing my love for photography and creating emotive images for my clients over listening to that horrible inner voice that tells me i’m not worth it.

I am greater than my fear.
