the cornish family | rocky mountain family photographer

So, for those that might not know this woman (but let’s be honest, I know most of you do haha), this is my sweet friend Sarah Cornish of My Four Hens Photography. We have been social media friends for what seems like forever and last weekend we finally had the chance to meet in person in her stretch of the Rockies way down in Colorado! It should come as no surprise that she is just the sweetest, kindest, most honest person. With 6 kids in tow we trekked up to Estes Park, CO and wow, even though I shoot in the Canadian Rockies 90% of the time and have seen my fair share of mountains, the park there is insane with beauty and did not disappoint one bit. I will be the first to admit that after chatting with Sarah and letting her know my plans to come down that way and that she was interested in a session, I kind of wanted to throw up….I was a ball of nerves (not unusual haha) because I have admired and looked up to this woman for at least the past 5 years…… I have this a$$hole that lives in my brain, her name is Doubt……She really loves to make herself known and the weeks leading up to the session was utter chaos in my brain….”You’re not good enough Jayme, now she’s gonna know i’m just a fluke artist Jayme, nothing is going to turn out, Jayme”…….blah blah…but the second Sarah and I hugged and I got to meet all her children that Doubt shrivelled into a pile of dust and all my nerves were put at ease. Guys, I barely had to do anything…Wes had all the tricks up his sleeve to keep the kids occupied, engaged and entertained.

Sarah, I really enjoyed photographing your family and can not wait to show you my Rockies up here!

Liz contacted me about 11 days ago about a family session but at that time, I had no idea the importance. Her and her husband, Jamie have been through a lot over the past 3.5 years, ever since starting the adoption process of a sweet little girl named Estaya. She was born in the Congo and lived there until 2 weeks ago when she finally arrived in Canada. Legally, she was a Canadian citizen and fully adopted but the country would not let her leave. Liz went and lived there for 7.5 months until the president of the country signed off on her release and they were finally allowed to make the long journey home to Canada. Thank you Liz, for in ...

I first told the story of my dear friends Kat & Aaron's big move to Salt Spring Island back in May and now I have had the honour of telling Kat's parents story.

It was a bitter sweet day filled with stories, jokes, chocolate, tears and horses. Kat's brother and sister made the trip up from Vancouver just to say one final goodbye to the place they grew up. Abby said goodbye to her favourite pony although her new owners have agreed to wee ...
