Paige - Grad

The one thing I can truly say about this session is that it embodies the definition of grace and elegance.  

Grad sessions are usually so casual, but Paige wanted anything but that.  I wanted to help her achieve her vision so I spent lots of time putting this session together.  With a little help from some locals, (who had a truly storybook property), and Paige's little sister to assist me, I was able to capture some of the most elegant and artful images I think I've ever taken.  But I was really inspired by Paige and her situation, and that really helped me tap into another level of inspiration for my own work as a result. 

We all face challenges in our life that seem impassable, and sometimes but not always, we find a ways to defeat them and move onto the next stage of our lives...  making us stronger, smarter, and more beautiful than ever before.  Paige is no different.  She wanted to showcase her incredible transformation in this moment in a way that would never let her forget just how important that was to her.

Once we were done and she saw the final images, I could sense that she felt strong, empowered, and beautiful again.  My hope for Paige and for all the rest of the graduates of this year and the next is that you always continue to find yourself in ways you never thought possible, and never, EVER give up on yourself.

My First Boudoir Session

Suffice to say, a session like this will rattle your nerves your first go at it.  I remember thinking to myself, I wonder who is more nervous - her or me?  A funny thing happens though when I walk into her house and we get all set up...  The nervousness goes away.  I am immediately in a different place and I all the sudden feel really comfortable and natural.  Like I know what I'm doing  And then this happens...

Rock The Dress 2014

Another year, and another successful Rock the Dress campaign for breast cancer awareness.  All money raised goes to the cause.  My 3 lovely models this year did not disappoint as each girl fit just perfectly into the environment I found for them and then they promptly stole the scene in every shot.  

Thanks to my models, your contributions are valuable beyond words and highly appreciated. Special thanks to Kristal Burgess of Kristal Burgess Potography of and Amy Gervais  of Photos by Amy Gervais, for once again leading the charge on another successful, sold out event in Salmon Arm!

Until next year ladies,
