Vanessa & Frank- Maternity session

I photographed Vanessa and Frank's wedding during my very first season of shooting weddings. Since then we have become great friends and I now excited to watch their family grow. This little munchkin will be so very loved by so many- including me. I can't wait till April!

Lots of Love,

Jasmine & Neil- esession

Jasmine and Neil are getting married in Jasper this September and I am so looking forward to this mountain wedding. It's a perfect place for this adorable couple to wed since they enjoy tearing up ski hills together. They also love the Oilers, much like Tim and myself, and any couple who can toughen out this dismal season shows a level of commitment that will make marriage a breeze...just kidding.

Thanks for hanging out on a cold winter afternoon!

Little Miss Violet

So I have gotten a number of emails requesting more pictures of the little miss and I'd love to share some with you all. I haven't taken very many images of her ( strange, I know) but it is just so busy being a new mom. And now she is growing like crazy- she is already 7 pounds and 8 ounces- finally the size of a normal newborn after 9 weeks! Violet is already a funny kid and we are both absolutely smitten with every little thing she does. We are so very blessed!

So here she is, the reason why my blog and business has nearly been abandoned the last 9 weeks.....

Violet at 1 week old (4 pounds, 14 oz),these images compliments of Andrea:

Here she is at one month (6 pounds 6 oz):

And last week at 2 months old:

Big blue eyes and strawberry blonde hair! Strange for 2 dark haired people with green eyes :)

She's always up for some snuggles, so please come by to meet our newest addition!

Lots of Love,

Aimee & Mike- January 2 2010

Aimee and Mike were married on January 2 at the River Cree Resort. Unfortunately I had Violet via C-section only days earlier and was unable to photograph the event. I always knew that an early delivery was possible and so we had back-up plans in place-and it all worked out wonderfully. Shaun Scade and my second shooter Kelly McKay covered the event on the freezing cold day. The bridal party were a bunch of real troopers heading out into the snow and the pictures are worth their effort. Here are a few teasers from their big day:

Baby Teagan

I had the honour of photographing Stacey & Justin's wedding last May and now have been lucky enough to watch their family grow. We were able to get together during the cold spell in December while Stacey was pregnant for some maternity shots- just a week before our Violet was born. Now baby Teagan has made his grand entrance. He is the cutest little man- absolutely perfect!

Enjoy a few images of day four in his life & a couple more of his proud parents anxiously awaiting his arrival.

Such a handsome guy!

Stacey made this blanket for Teagan- she is incredibly talented!

A Very Special Announcement

Hello Friends,

I just wanted to share our good news with you. Tim and I are pleased to announce the early arrival of our daughter, Violet Kavell. She was born 5 weeks early and surprised us all. We are so lucky in Canada to have such good doctors and hospitals that can provide us with emergency health care. We feel so blessed that she is healthy and strong. What an amazing Christmas gift.

Violet Kavell. Born December 28th at 11:20pm. 17 inches long, 5 pounds 7 ounces. She has blond hair, a double chin and a dimple on her right cheek. She is perfect and we love her so very much already.

I will be a taking some time to spend with my new daughter and Tim. Our new family has lots of adjusting to do and we can't wait to get to know our little Violet better.

Lots of love,
