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!

For anyone that doesn't know the story of how Lucas and I met...this will give you an idea. I'll keep it short but to summarize, I had an appointment in Dec of 2008 with the one and only Lucas Ford. He's a very sought after tattooer in these parts so I was lucky enough to sneak in an appointment. Little did I know it would lead to a wonderful marriage, an incredibly smart step son and two of our own beautiful boys.... ...oh, and now he gets a free photography service ;) lol Camera used: Rolleiflex 3.5f MX-EVS Film Used: XP2 +1, Tri-X, Portra 800 (forgot about that green hue it adds lol oops)

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 ...

the watt family | red deer lifestyle photographer
Some of you may recognize this beautiful family from a few posts I did this spring. Lyndsey is a good friend of mine and back in the spring she was diagnosed with breast cancer, at the young age of 29. (You may take a look back at the beginning of her journey here & here) nearly 6 months has passed, full of chemo, sickness, good days and bad days, struggles and  triumphs. But I am happy to say that her chemo was discontinued early due to the great response the cancer was having to it. We decided to celebrate by having a little lifestyle session in their home at the beginning of October. They snuggled in bed, read their favourite books, ...
