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 surface and it came to a point where I just had to sit and soak in all the innocence of childhood that I could. I sat there watching Jensen climb the same trees I did, playing on the same jungle gym (There is a shot of Jensen playing on jungle gym that was built the year I graduated grade 7), and just watch him and wondered if he was making those same memories. I hope anyways….

I’m going to admit, I was a bit emotional seeing Jensen running around in the forest that I used to frequent as a child. I told him that mommy used to play there when she was a little girl and ever since that day he’s been telling people that he is going to go to “mommy’s school” when he gets big…I wish, buddy…I wish.

You know how sometimes a client falls into your lap and you just know they are going to be amazing? Meet the Cruickshank family; Simoi and I share a treasured love for the wilderness and I knew the moment I read her email that we were going to be fast friends. I actually started writing this post before I had even shot the session - that's how confident I was that it was going to be a super fun shoot. She had asked for her session to be in a beautiful place of nature, amongst the trees and moss in a little hideout in the woods. I knew immediately where I was going to shoot and took the boys out with me to set up (that proved to be a diffic ...

It was an insanely hot day for May when I met up with the Davis crew down in Drumheller for the evening. These super active boys had so much fun exploring the hoodoos and were such troopers when it came to having their photos done. Taneill, you and your husband have raised some incredible young men and I can't wait to see you guys soon! SaveSave SaveSave
here’s to 2014 | red deer family photographer
As 2014 dwindles to an end, i've spent the last few weeks cataloging and backing up all my sessions from this year...I couldn't help but feel so incredibly grateful for each and every one that has invited me in and trusted me to tell their families story. I've been shown such love being around these families and am forever thankful for these experiences. Photographers say so often how much they love their job and that their clients are the greatest...i'm no different but I consider these people friends and family... 1000 thank you's, "here's to the good you've found, and the great that awaits"
