red balloons for ryan

About a week ago I heard – as many others did – about sweet little 3 1/2 year old Ryan from California. Tragically Ryan was struck by a truck while playing at his cousins house and was killed. His mom Jacqui, is a mommy blogger and the community has wrapped their arms around her and her husband Dan, rallying to raise money and send some healing comfort to them in this incomprehensibly difficult time. Jacqui’s best friend Alissa asked that this mother’s day, everyone send a red balloon to Ryan….and so we did, from the tippy top of the Rockies. Below is a photo from Jacqui’s Instagram of her and her husband, Dan sending some balloons to their little man…. my heart just aches for them.

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 ...

I have a sad heart but butterflies in my stomach for my dear friends Kat, Aaron and their sweet little girl, Abby. They sold their house and are making the big move to Vancouver Island! I was lucky enough to follow them around while they said goodbye to the house they brought their daughter home to, packed up the last of the pictures off the wall, and bid farewell to Alberta. To fully tell the story of their move I also took video...please take a look :) I am elated to be diving more and more into videography and happy to announce that I will be offering this to all my clients as an addition to my top packages :) one week lat ...

Just a quick weekend trip to the mountains with my littles. This is definitely one of my most favourite spots in Banff and the day we went was perfect. usually when we take the boys to the mountains, we adventure during the day and end up having to shoot in direct high noon sun but that day was the perfect mixture of clouds and not too cold.
