Spring & Summer Magazine 2021 It's Spring!  Here at the cottage I've been spending a lot of time with dirt; digging it, sorting it, planting seeds with it, breathing it in (boy it's dry) and talking about it because this year may be the year we actually do some landscaping!  We've got 160 acres of beautiful natural landscape but no purposeful landscaping has yet taken place.  Slowly, slowly, is the pace we're taking here and I'm okay with that.  Every single small change is exciting and fills me with joy.  BUT, back to the magazine the link is hereClick and enjoy!  I hope it encourages you to put down the rake and record memories this year.

Light tests behind the scenes Happiness is when they look this cute for their test shot😆  When you come for studio shoots we get the light just right before we start shooting and that's why we take test shots.  Some models have fun with it and they already have a print-worthy portrait before they get their outfit(s) on.  In this case he was here for a hockey photo shoot and this was before he got his gear on.  Nothing beats a relaxed model with a natural smile.

National Picnic Day encourages us to spend time outdoors A picnic in April may not be something we're used to doing in Alberta but this weather does encourage outdoor fun!

  • a snack
  • your favourite book
  • freshly pedicured toes
  • a special drink
  • flower crown
  • a cozy blanket
  • a hat
  • mosquito spray

Coffee & Bourbon Sundowners Coffee and Bourbon Cocktail Happy hour at Elbow Tree Cottage
It's happy hour at the cottage.  Leftover coffee doesn't usually exist at the cottage but it's Spring which meant my day was full of outdoor chores so the second cup of coffee in my French Press was left to be enjoyed in the evening.  An extra bonus is that I could use a little pick-me-up after schlepping wood and digging in the garden all day.  Sometimes the stars align.

Never let the morning's brew go to be waste...


4 1/2 oz black iced coffee

1 oz bourbon

1/4 to 1/2 oz maple syrup (how sweet do you like it?)


If you don't have leftover coffee brew a pot and let it chill until cold, or dilute your cold-brew concentrate with an equal amount of cold water.  Measure all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake thoroughly, until chilled and foamy.  Strain into a glass over ice.

If you made this please comment below on your thoughts - will you make it again?  Have you amended it somehow?  How sweet did you like it?

Spring in Alberta Spring is here .... Alberta's version of Spring is here.  Beautiful tone on tone shades of brown and tan broken up by gorgeous evergreens and then a snowstorm that inspires cozy times by the fireplace with hot drinks and fuzzy blankets.  Alberta's version of Spring is okay for me.

Regardless of how hard Google, iCloud, Dropbox, etc. work to create a failsafe system, the reality is that no system is ever 100% safe.  While we love the idea of security and permanent preservation that digital files seem to offer, the reality is any platform can crash go out of business, or hike their prices up.  Print your images because there's no way to reclaim them once they're lost.

Late Autumn Neutral Colours Autumn is a very popular time for photo shoots.  Is it because people are preparing for their Christmas cards or that the colours are gorgeous?  Maybe a bit of both, but there is that time between beautiful orange and yellow foliage and wonderfully covered white landscapes that can be special.  The leaves have all fallen, the air is fresh and aromatic and the landscape is neutral - possibly a bit minimalistic.  This boy rocked his photoshoot and had fun doing it.  He told his mom he really enjoyed it and his mom knows he liked being 'in the spotlight' at his one-on-one photo session.

Summer is coming to and end How is it even possible that the end of summer is upon us?  Living in Alberta, Canada, I've come to appreciate each season and their silver linings so it’s always a little bittersweet when a season nears it’s end.  That said, there's no denying Fall awakens a part of me that I look forward to.  I will dig out my boots and sweaters with a smile and aim to have as many outdoor fires as the weather will allow.  How do you best like to enjoy Fall?  Tell me in the comments ....

Inventory time of year country life in Alberta, Canada I was organizing the cold room and, although I wasn't expecting it, the chore filled me full of anticipation for colder weather. There must be something primal about filling the cold room with the year's harvest that connects me to the natural instinct for preparing to hunker down for winter.  It's getting darker sooner, the mornings are noticeably colder and I've got the urge to collect wood.  Autumn is coming and the yellow bits in the trees make that easy to realize.  I will enjoy these brighter nights for as long as I can.  How will you enjoy your last days of summer?  Share in the comments.

A surprise tool that I need to do what I do You can probably guess that as a photographer my day-to-day often involves using tools like my Nikon, memory cards and Photoshop to do what I love. 📷 What might surprise you is how necessary long quiet walks are to clear my mind so inspiration can enter.  I often come back from a walk with my furbabies with ideas I’m rushing to write down so I don’t forget them.  🐶 What do you do and what can’t you do without so you can do it❓

Printing your images have impacts you may not realize A picture may paint a thousand words, but what story does a blank canvas tell? That’s easy, whatever you choose! I’m much better with my Nikon than paint so I prefer to tell stories through pictures and there is nothing more satisfying than preparing images from your photo shoot for your walls.  I hope you choose to tell the story of your loved ones

Look closely and here I am behind the scenes on a hot day summer here at Elbow Tree Cottage photographing individual portraits.  It's a great time of year for light filled summer images.  I took this lovely teenager to three different locations and we played with different accessories each time.  I love taking pictures for this family every year - it's so fun seeing the girls grow into young adults.

I help my clients with what to wear and my client's mom loves how her daughter looks in 'jewel tones'.  In this shoot she is wearing something from the studio.  I love how the dark dress contrasts with the model's skin and trees.

A special price for Minor Ball players Photo Shoot specialMinor Ball Portrait SpecialPhoto Shoots at Elbow Tree Cottage
Pictured above is the same boy with a missing year in between.

How fast they change! 

I've been photographing the same league for three years and each year it's so entertaining to see the change in the players.  I expect this is less entertaining to the parents as their babies grow into young adults.

This time last year I was photographing ball players and preparing their year's momentos.  Although organized team sports has been cancelled it doesn't mean you can't play catch or get a special photograph of your growing player. 

If you were in organized Minor Ball last year and don't want a gap in years for your photo collection, I've put together a special for you.  You don't have to wear your ball gear, but you can if you'd like.

You will get:

  • An individual portrait photo shoot for your player
  • Shoot location: Elbow Tree Cottage near Busby, Alberta
  • Pre-shoot consult
  • Digital proofing gallery of 5 images
  • Your choice of a 5x7 or 8x10 print (which can be customized to include the year)
  • You can order prints from, what would have been, this year's order form or from Juniper Berry's spring/summer magazine
  • Cannot be combined with other specials or discount cards
  • This Minor Ball deal is valid for shoots scheduled between now and 30 June
  • More than one child?  Contact me for a special rate.

The difference two years make I've been photographing the same league for three years and each year it's so entertaining to see the change in the players ⚾️ I expect this is less entertaining for the parents as their babies grow into young adults. I really will miss seeing all of the players this year. Dare I say the mosquitoes wouldn't have been bad either.

How do you lift your spirits? What do you do to lift your spirits?  Whenever I’m having a bad day I want to stay cozy in my bed and maybe binge watch a sitcom...(s). I try to resist and instead I make my way down to the kitchen to begin the ritual of making my morning coffee.  I get my good-morning-snuggles from the puppies and take them for a walk. This, and a video call with someone special, can turn my day right around!  I'm interested to know what you do to lift your spirts - tell me in the comments.

Pictures of home during a pandemic You're at home and you're probably getting tired of it.  Tired of being cooped up and of not having any alone time.  Don't let that stop you from capturing this time of your family's story in photographs.  I've never regretted taking too many pictures - only not enough.  As much as it's a challenging time, the images you capture will spark the memory of your children years from now and the stories they will recall with be ones of togetherness.  I am SO looking forward to hearing the stories told by the younger generation in 10 years from now when we ask them to tell a story about this time in our history. 

I don't think we tell each other enough stories and, in my circles, I hope to take steps to fix that.  Bonfire story time here we come!

Seven tips to prepare your family for a photo shoot 7 tips, family photography,Seven TipsPreparing your family for a photo shoot

There are 7 things I tell parents when preparing for their family photo shoot.  These tips help prepare you and your family so the getting ready, showing up and having fun is stress free.  

The first thing I say to moms who are planning a family photo shoot is ... INCLUDE EVERYONE: Get your family excited about the shoot. Involve them in the discussion of what you will be doing and where you will be doing it. Kids and adults alike want to know what's coming. Let them know they will be featured on the walls like the rock stars you know they are and they will no doubt perform accordingly 👍 

PREPARE: The more relaxed you are, the more relaxed your family will be so plan your outfits at least one-week in advance and set them aside so you are not fussing with stains on the day of your shoot. If your time before the shoot is rushed and stressful, this mood will be hard to break. Set the tone and be ready with spare time to relax or play with your children before the Session. ✨ 

EAT: Full tummies (or at least not hungry tummies) make for happy kids. Children are more likely to be restless and easily upset when they are hungry. Please bring snacks and drinks to keep them going and remember to avoid anything that will stain their face or get stuck in their teeth.

COMFORT: It's okay if your child wants to bring their favourite toy, blanket or anything that brings them comfort. They can take a break for a snuggle or maybe blankie should be in the picture too? Did you have a blankie when you were a child? Or was it something else?

ENJOY: I don't recommend making appointments immediately after your shoot. You have set this time aside for you all to be together – embrace it and be in the moment.

YOU CAN’T FAIL: There is no right or wrong way to do this. Love your family, hug them, throw your children into the air, tickle each other, enjoy a favourite activity and I will capture the interactions between your family. 

NO PRESSURE:  There is no hard and fast time limit for your session duration so don't worry if it takes time for your children to warm up.

Behind the scenes during a Winter photo shoot at Elbow Tree Cottage A curious dog, a very long skirt and extremely deep snow!  Here's a picture of behind the scenes before getting this very noble look from both models.  A winter princess with her protective sidekick but there was plenty of silliness going on before pulling this off.

Her mother and I had fun pulling together this inspired outfit of textures and layers and doesn't this German Shepherd look like such a good boy!  He looks as if his eyes are saying "Stay away from my little girl!"

Vintage Linen Memory Cards I thought it would be good to highlight products/gifts for under $99. While curating a list I quickly realized that almost all items were under $99 - and that there were plenty under $50 too. ✨ I believe it's important to print your images - digital images are not stable - for longevity print your images

These VINTAGE LINEN MEMORY CARDS are an excellent way to enjoy many prints from your session. Some clients like to hang them from a string or fairylights, a wood block holds an image on your side table or desktop.  Each order comes with a customizable box so make it special and add a meaningful quote, name and date, or a personal message.⠀

Pets weave themselves into our day and our hearts Family pets; they teach us responsibility and they teach us that saying goodbye is a part of being.  Pets weave themselves into your day-to-day and when they are gone, our days are that little bit more empty.  Our memories of those little faces spark joy in hearts at every age.  Do you remember your childhood pet?

I don't know how the human brain works I really don't know how the human brain works but I woke up this morning with memories flooding to the surface.  Clearly more time has passed than I realized and these memories were from longer ago than it seems. 

It feels like I was there, smelling that air and seeing those things for the first time just a couple years ago but time has moved faster than I can comprehend.  So I sat down to look at old pictures; the images brought back moments I would have forgotten and I was thankful for having them.

One regret: LOTS of pictures but very difficult to find one me.  I don't like being in pictures - I love to take them.  I aim to be better at that because as self conscious as I may be, the memories mean more.

There is one picture below that I remember reluctantly letting someone take and now I am so glad to have it.

Not jack of all trades but master of one Fall portrait photography at Elbow Tree with Juniper Berryclick herePhoto Shoot 101
I may not be a jack-of-all-trades, but I'm told I’m master-of-one. My photography clients say that I can put people at ease and make anyone comfortable in front of the camera.  ⁠

I’ve had parents baffled at pictures of their children saying that it’s not even a true representation of them because they are “never that happy”. At the end of their photo shoots, my clients have been known to say something like “Wow, that wasn’t as nerve-racking as I thought it was going to be.”  

Very thankful for my clients✨⁠

If you’re considering a photo shoot but aren’t sure you have the time, click here to be directed to my Photo Shoot 101 guide.  Alternatively, just send me an email and we can discuss what your photo shoot could look like without as much trouble as you think.⁠

Their many faces captured as they are now, for you to enjoy forever Do you wish it was easy to record your childrens' special light?  Would you like to record, revisit and later remember how their individual personality lit up your life?  Their smile, the sparkle in their eye, the way their nose crinkles when they laugh and the funny look they give when they think they’re right.  If your answer is YES, I'd absolutely love to chat ✨ so drop me a line or visit this link to Photo Shoot 101, which will explain the easy steps to getting your photo shoot.

Wishing you a warm and cozy holiday season Christmas card traditionsMerry Christmas xoChristmas Cards by Juniper Berry It's the small things we forget as we get older, and they can be the most heartwarming, so this holiday season try to get pictures of:

  1. People cooking/baking in the kitchen;
  2. The holiday spread;
  3. One shot of everyone together - it doesn't matter if not everyone is looking and people have funny faces;
  4. The "everyone" above means YOU TOO so set your timer;
  5. A family tradition you do each year.

These pictures will become more and more valuable as time passes and the memories and feelings they will bring flooding back years from now will be priceless.

Happiness is meant to be shared I feel like sharing a moment makes it more special - more enjoyable.  🍷Sharing a bottle of wine is more enjoyable than having a glass on your own. 🌅 If I see a beautiful sunset I will always call to whoever is near so they can enjoy it with me. 🤣 Sharing a laugh over a funny moment or memory makes for double the fun. 🔥Sitting around a fire, listening to the crackle and feeling the warmth is more special when shared. ✨ I really do believe that happiness is meant to be shared.⁠

The Juniper Album It's time for Hyyge.  Cozying up on the sofa with loved ones, blankets and hot drinks.  Your children will have to sit nice and close to see the memories recorded on the pages you have in your lap.  

The Juniper Album is a beautiful way to record memories. Your photo session stopped time and you can always travel back when you open the pages of your album. I recommend you customize the cover with the date and it will be a timeless treasure for you or your loved ones to enjoy now and in the future. You can be a legacy in these pages.

Which do you prefer? I was at the Westlock Spirit Centre taking photos for the Westlock Minor Hockey Warriors and I was told by the young male hockey players that when you pose for hockey pictures a serious face is appropriate.  LOL  When will they learn that a smile is the best way to catch the girls' attention 😄 He was adamant that I use the one with no smile - which do you prefer?

It's harvest time! I was so excited to see the farmer arrive today with his equipment and I can't say why.  The oat field is beautiful and he's taking it all down - this means no more photographing clients amongst the golden stalks but still I was filled giddy energy.  Back in the day harvest time was followed by harvest festivals where people celebrated with eating, contests, music and other fun activities.  Could it be that I'm influenced by my farming ancestors?  Or perhaps I'm looking forward to extending our daily walks into the newly accessible field?  As it turns out the field actually still looks beautiful and golden.  Tonight's walk is going to include a new route.

Happy harvesting to all of our local farmers!

If not, let's book them in for a photo shoot. We can talk about their personality, their hobbies, I can help you put together an outfit or two that they are comfortable in and we will make images that, when you look back on them in years to come, will have you remembering their individualism at this age.

My old apron I grabbed my old apron today and started making meatballs.  As I used my hands to mix the ingredients I looked outside and my mind wandered... 🍂 The season is changing and stores are full of autumn décor; you’re probably tempted to buy a new fall inspired apron.  Is the apron you currently have your mother’s or maybe your grandmother’s, which was passed down to you? ✨ Do you have memories of coming in from playing outside with a bruised knee and her wiping your tears with it?  Maybe you hid behind it when company came or she wore it to make your favourite pie?  🥧 Was it worn to bring you soup when you were sick?  🍲 Every mended hole and tear tells a story.  Don’t buy a new apron, go to the basement or attic and dig out an old apron and wear it like a hug.  You’ll be reminded of past moments while you make new ones.

Dancing to the music in your head I had a super cute photo shoot with a 3-year old yesterday and we didn't know she was a dancer until she was in front of the camera.  How children are going to react to being in front of the camera is an unknown and this little girl didn't stop moving.  We're not sure why she chose to move the way she did but there was no stopping her.  Her bottom could be solidly sat on a chair but her hands, and even her head, didn't stop dancing.  When the music in her head became so good, she had to get up and strut her stuff.  Her mom and I couldn't stop laughing at her moves and that only made her more confident in her self.  Is it hard to imagine how your little one would react to the camera?  In my experience they usually surprise you.

The last days of summer are approaching

The last day of summer is approaching and I'm unapologetically looking forward to cozy sweaters, pulling my boots out of the back of the closet and stacking wood for chilly evenings.  Summer was fun, it was nice not to have to wear three layers of clothing before heading out, it was amazing to have super long days that extended sundowner sessions and, if I’m honest, my legs needed to get a peek of sun!  For those of you wanting to stop summer call me to talk about scheduling your summer session.  Together we will stop summer and it will live forever in the images that capture your sun kissed hair and freckles.

It's about the little things I think that life is all about the ‘little things’, the time spent, the moments shared and the photographs for proof that it all happened. I've found that, when remising with family and friends, I’m surprised about moments I’d forgotten. This is why I love pictures – they tickle my brain and memories come flooding back. Has that ever happened to you? Suddenly you remember why you wore that outfit and the smell that was in the air and the hug your mother gave you just before the picture was taken. Collect memories, not things.

Hey Moms, organizing a photo shoot can sound confusing - but it doesn't have to be Family PhotographerFamily Photo ShootsWestlock County Photo Shoots To some, thinking about organizing a photo shoot can be confusing – how do I herd the cats?  That’s why I’m here to give you 7 quick tips on preparing your family.  The first three are below, click the image above for the full seven.

TIP 1: EAT Full tummies make for happy kids. Children are more likely to be restless and easily upset when they’re hungry. Bring snacks and drinks to keep them going and remember to avoid anything that will stain their face or get stuck in their teeth.

TIP 2: COMFORT It’s okay if your child wants to bring their favourite toy, blanket or anything else that brings them comfort. They can take a break for a snuggle or maybe blankie should be in the picture too – don’t we all have fond memories of our favourite blanket or stuffy!

TIP 3: YOU CAN’T FAIL There is no right or wrong way to do this. Love your family, hug them throw your children in the air, tickle each other, enjoy a favourite activity and I will capture your family’s interactions.

It’s starting to sound straightforward right? Tell me, did this help you?

Message me if there’s anything I can help answer for you and click here or the image above for more tips.

It’s gonna get crowded but I prefer the word “cozy” and I expect the chaos will be fundamental for the lasting memories we’ll make.  We will be hosting 11 extra people in our two-bedroom house but that’s not my biggest concern – how do I cook for that number of people!  Please share with me your favourite recipe for large groups.

Ice-cream is for bonding One of my favourite things to do with my nieces and nephews is making ice-cream.  It's probably one of their favourite too <laugh>

They each have their favourite flavour and without fail they ask for it whenever they're visiting.  It fills me with joy when they say "Auntie ..." and I love being able to give them something they want.  For me, it makes it so much sweeter (no pun intended) when it's homemade and we can do it together

Packaging up baseball memories today Sports PhotographyPackaging memories today

Kallan wanted to be sure his baseball pose reflected his favourite position.

This afternoon I'm busy packing up memories of team comradery, sportsmanship, goals reached and lessons learned.  

At first it's a momento to mark a fun event in their childhood years, you're proud and you share with your family.  As time goes on it's a reminder of how they looked and of a time that seems too long ago. Start collecting these sports momentos for your children to enjoy when they're older.  Your children will thank you when they sit down and reminisce about their younger years; old friends, teammates, coaches and what being part of a sports team taught them. Your grandchildren will also enjoy seeing their parents at their own age. It's never too early to start your child's legacy.

I talk about my photo shoots but this time why don’t I have Tracy tell you about her experience instead: ⁠

“Due to weather I thought this may have been her fastest shoot as a huge thunder storm with a down pour of rain cut our time down but this didn’t phase Heidi at all. She kept on doing portrait shots in the barn as we all took shelter. She made my 10 year old daughter feel like a super model and she didn’t want the night to end.” ⁠

SO sweet, right? ⁠

Thank you Tracy. We got some great shots in the barn 😉 and I think the best ones were after the rain passed - everything looked especially lush. I loved hearing how the photo shoot left Morgan feeling - big smiles over here!

What to wear To some, thinking about organizing a photo shoot can be daunting – what would you wear? Below are 3 quick tips on what to wear and you can click the image below to get the full guide.  

TIP 1: Avoid clothes with large logos, words or illustrations.  Typically polka dots and wide stripes should also be avoided.

TIP 2: It’s best to avoid all-black and wearing too much white.

TIP 3: Iron clothes and use a lint roller.  Wrinkles, lint, and animal hair will standout in photographs.

Wearing coordinating (not matching) clothes is nice but what’s most important is that you take a moment to stop time so you can cherish today in images that will make you smile for the rest of your life, and then the smiles keep coming because they will be how you’ll be remembered.

School Supply Season IS Photo Shoot Season It's August and the summer is coming to an end.  School shopping, hair cuts, and the smell of school supplies is in the air.  Oh how I loved the smell of new school supplies!  I very clearly remember shopping for and organising my school supplies.  Ticking off items on the paper list provided by the school and choosing binder colours that matched the classes - Math was always blueI digress

I had a great time photographing this family who chose August for their annual photo shoot.  I was able to spend individual time with each boy and even captured some special moments with only the parents.  We had great weather and having their images from this shoot meant they didn't need to depend on school photos working out, the images could be more personal and include pets and their home/land as a backdrop.  Additionally, they had plenty of time to order photo products for Christmas gifts and were able to take advantage of the October pre-order Christmas card sale.  As I write this I am beginning to realise why August is such a busy time for photo shoot bookings.

Mom behind the scenes Thanks mom!  

Horse control, wardrobe fixing and encouragement.

Our model may not admit she wanted mom at her shoot but there is something comforting about having your mom nearby.  I had a fantastic time at this shoot with Morgan and her mom.  Morgan was confident, relaxed and silly in front of the camera and neither was fazed by the rainstorm that had us running for the barn.

Location Scouting in St. Albert I've been back for longer than I can believe but the sound of my boots kicking the leaves is still harmony and I'm taking so many deep breaths I'm getting dizzy.  I hope my appreciation for Autumn and these small pleasures never fade.   

It's a beautiful time of year and I get to go out and look for photogenic spots to photograph your portraits.  Today I'm in St. Albert and there are lots of perks to organising a shoot here; parking, overcrowding can be avoided, access is easy and this little city takes nature seriously.  Capturing the beauty of your smile with Fall as a backdrop won't be a difficult task.

Blinkity Blink Blink They say women blink twice as often than men and, in this little lady's case, I'd say it's true.  At one point I switched my shutter speed to 6 frames a second to capture an eyes-open-shot; we had lots of great shots in the end but I'd like to share a collection of blinks from Morgan's photo shoot and a sample of one 'keeper'.

Giggle Fits These behind the scenes images brought tears to his mother's eyes.  As a mother you want your children to be happy.  As your photographer, I want your children to be happy too.  Following a shoot I often go through the images and wonder what happened at particular moments to evoke certain looks and smiles.  Did I say something funny?  I don’t consider myself funny so it must have just been silliness.  I do remember this moment though, maybe because it lasted for quite a while, this boy had the giggle-fits and he couldn’t stop laughing.  His giggle was infectious.

Remember when ... This family wanted to do something a little different for their annual family photo shoot so we took it to the city.  We scooted, climbed ramps, enjoyed the city skyline and above all else, the family loved each other, shared sideways glances, knowing looks, encouraging smiles and giggles.  It's possible that not everyone wanted to be there but at the end of the day they have a story to tell and images to remind them "about that time...."

You can picture the setting - you are at a family gathering and maybe turning the pages of one of your family photo albums and your sister/brother laughs and says "Remember that time mom brought us to that parkade ..."

"Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory."

Road Trip! I'll call it a road trip even though it's not far from home.  I believe it classifies as a road trip if I’ve got hot coffee and a place to be.  Some days it’s an opportunity to be quiet and alone with my thoughts and other days I turn up the volume and get lost in the beat of a good song.  Today was a beautiful day to drive into the country for a photo shoot; the contrast of the yellow canola against blue sky was too beautiful not to make me grateful for my surroundings.  Enjoy your road trip and take time to admire the beauty around you - tag me on your road trip.

Two Thumbs Up We started Morgan's shoot early because storm clouds were heading in our direction.  Both Morgan and her horse, Orlagh, were ready to get started as the primping started early in the day.  Hair, nails and even Orlagh got some special beauty time.  

We were able to shoot for the must-have shots before it started raining.  Thankfully we made it inside the barn before the skies opened up but Orlagh had to be walked back to the pasture - thanks mom!  Mom was soaked through but didn't let it get her down; she wrapped herself in a blanket and enjoyed the loudest thunderstorm I've heard in years while being protected from the wind and rain inside the beautiful old red barn.  I took advantage of the light entering the barn to capture more images of Morgan and when the storm passed we headed back out to continue the photo shoot in the fresh after-storm air.  The rain and evening light made everything shine a little more brightly.  

It was a pleasure to work with Morgan and her mom on this meaningful photo shoot.  Some images from this shoot can be viewed on the collage page of my website and more will be posted soon.

The first image below was taken after Morgan's photo shoot - she had a great time and so did I.  The second image is of Morgan rocking her photo shoot.

First days, first shared moments His nursery has been ready for him; clothes cleaned and folded, unboxed diapers are to hand and there's a special teddy waiting for a friend.  You carefully drove your bundle of joy from the hospital and now he is safe in the walls of your home.  The first days are when you get to know each other.  What his sounds mean, how often he likes his meals, is he a sleeper or a does he like to stay up and play?  Life is made up of small, seemingly insignificant, moments.

“Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory”

The images from your Newborn Session will help spark memories long after you thought there were none.  Invest in your family's legacy and start recording memories today.

A Model's Life This birthday girl wanted a Juniper Berry Photography session for her special birthday *so flattered

She learned that a photo shoot is more than just looking great.  When she became a Juniper Berry model she got to see what happens behind the scenes.  Light testing, working up a sweat walking her horses in snow and trying to keep warm between shots. 

The cold toes get warm and the red cheeks fade but the images are going to be recorded in a photo album forever.

It was a pleasure hanging out with you and your horses for the afternoon Erin.  Also, let's not forget to thank your mom for being a great assistant and managing the second horse and warm clothes behind the scenes.

Lookin' Like a Sport Star! I'm excited to share some sample shots from one proud Bobcat’s shoot that took place on Thursday.  She is definitely magazine-cover-worthy!  The athletes were excited to choose a pose of their own; it was interesting to see which one they picked for themselves. I'm thankful to my sister who volunteered her time to assist me on this shoot - we worked hard but it was fun.  Remembering each individual personally while I edited the images had me smiling the whole way through.

7 Reasons Why Winter Shoots Are Great Sure, winter can be chilly but it's a beautiful time of year to book your portrait session.  Read on for 7 reasons why winter photo shoots are great:

Photo Shoot, Edmonton, Alberta, PortraitWhy a winter photo shoot is great

1.          Frost

Hoar Frost is beautifully picturesque and once you add your gorgeous self we create custom art you will be proud to display in your home.  Hoar Frost is common at the beginning of winter buy can be seen throughout the season.  I hope these whimsical crystals can play a part in your photo shoot.

2.     Grey skies equal beautiful skin

No joke – photographers use light to keep you looking beautiful and in the winter there are so many days with beautiful soft light.  Cloudy days may not seem ideal but they will smooth your skin and help you look your best.

3.       Winter wardrobe

Do you secretly prefer your winter wardrobe to your summer wardrobe?  The boots, jackets, cozy scarves and textured knits!  You are getting excited imagining it, right? I’m thinking of the layering combinations and my heart is racing.  If you need any advice or ideas on what to wear I’m here to help.

4.     Winter sun

As mentioned above, the winter sun is much more flattering than the high, specular sun of summer.  It’s fabulous because it stays relatively low in the sky and nature’s natural filters make it beautiful before it lights you.  If you want to glow, consider a winter shoot.

5.       Sunset & sunrise

It gets better and better.  Sunset and sunrise are the best times of day to shoot.  In summer, this means getting up at silly-o’clock or getting home long after dinnertime but in winter, you will be home in time for dinner and to cosy up with your loved ones on the sofa.

6.      Winter makes you the focus

You’re not just a prop in all of the autumn colours.  The wintery background makes sure the focus in on you and you’re going to look great!  I love burgundy. and navy blue can be beautiful too.  Whatever colours you decide to wear, you will shine.  If you prefer a more muted neutral look - perfect – wear neutral colours and the background will play along.  Winter backdrops are starting to sound amazing, right!?

7.       Snow

Lots of people hope for snow when booking a winter photo shoot.  I’ve got my snow pants, warm boots and down jacket ready to walk through deep snow for you.  I’ll be prepared to record your memories in the snow so you can capture the beauty of this season before it melts.

If you want to discuss your shoot or book to take advantage of the unique opportunities winter provides drop me a line.

On Location

This morning I was lucky to be shooting in -6 degrees Celsius! Much warmer than the -23 degree weather we've been having!  I wore three layers of clothes but as it turns out, photographing a beautiful girl, two horses and a dog on 80 acres of property kept me warm enough that the second layer was probably unnecessary.  Better safe than sorry.  My sister's homemade muffin made a nice snack and the hot water in my thermos kept me hydrated while we traipsed over the hills.  A fantastic day to take in the scenery and fresh air.  Images from the shoot will shared here - watch this space.

Happy Birthday I spent my birthday horseback riding with family.  The fact that my allergies flared up and that I was tenting in freezing temperatures didn’t take away from how lucky I felt to be spending time in nature with my family.   The fire and the hugs were warm – not to mention my sister camps in a trailer with heat so the occasional break to help clean up after meals was nice too <wink>  Birthdays - another time of the year that reminds us time is passing and we change with it whether we want to or not.  Collect memories, not things.

Cheeky Smiles They try to look mature, and grown-up boys don’t smile right?  They give it their best shot but mention their girlfriend’s name and they can’t help themselves.  The positive side effect is the lovely blush it puts in their cheeks <place appropriate emoji here>.  It’s even sweeter when they beam in response to questions about their mom.  It’s always special when I’m invited to capture these fleeting moments that nature only lets us enjoy for a short time.

Getting the Shot Find the light, find the background, dial in the settings to the camera, coach the girl, fix her hair, coach the girl again and oh, now a friendly dog is nudging the camera away from my face with it’s nose and licking my eye. Thankfully, in this case, the horse was on his best behaviour. Getting the shot isn’t easy or straightforward but it’s always worth it!

Cowboy Hat Pullback I had some spare time between barrel races to make some images. Here is a pullback to show where this image of the cowboy hat was taken.  Photography is not about what the camera sees; it’s adjusting the settings so the camera sees what the photographer wants to record.  To get the most out of your photography experience, hire a trained photographer to record your special memories, not just a fancy camera.

Merriam-Webster (I trust you’ve heard of him) defines ‘boudoir’ as meaning “A woman’s bedroom or private room for dressing or resting”.  Let’s amp it up ladies!  Our boudoir can be the backdrop for so much more.  I’ve been privileged to be invited into women’s homes to capture intimate and sensual photos of them for their significant others and sometimes a gift for themselves.  None of my clients  have ever regretted their experience.  If the thought has crossed your mind – there is no time like the present.

Creating an Image Gallery for Your Small Business I get really enthusiastic when I am collaborating with fellow women entrepreneurs.  Yvonne and I had so much fun making images; from her with her tools of the trade, genuine portraits and amusing images relating to blog post themes.  The studio was brimming with clothes, shoes, accessories, props, make-up and laughter.   We danced, jumped, twisted, played peekaboo, pretended to be angry, acted frustrated and even stood very, very still.  I have no doubt that someone as passionate about her gift as Yvonne will be successful and I sincerely wish her the best.  Watch this space and I will let you know when she launches her site!

Whatcha thinkin’ ? On my walk home from a special lunch with friends I was consciously enjoying the feel and smell of the Dubai winter air while taking in the sights like a sponge.  I only have a few more weeks in Dubai and I am walking around like a tourist – I want to remember every little detail.  This lettering “DUBAI” caught my eye and I had to take out my phone and record it.  Thoughts of this city have been consuming me for the last several weeks and so the bright yellow capital letters reflected my thoughts perfectly.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day!  How will you be spending your V-day?  I'll be having lunch with a friend and hopefully enjoying sushi with my love for dinner.  Hmmm, funny how my plans tend to revolve around food.  Anyone want to join me for breakfast?

I'm Batman I was enjoying coffee with a friend and noticed her characterful kitty had perched himself perfectly on a bookshelf like he was just another ornament on display.   I always have my camera with me so out of my bag it comes and I started catching images of his handsome face.   You don’t need to know his name; just call him Batman.

Not "Bar" it's "Barre" Great posters Jackie!  It's very cool seeing my images at work. At this particular shoot is is possible these ladies worked harder than me - holding the poses was not easy but these girls made it look easy.   If there are any of you looking for a way to make your workouts a bit more interesting I recommend contacting Jacqueline to try Booty Barre

Boudior Is For You


You booked the Photographer, the Makeup Artist, your mani/pedi is lookin’ good, the curlers you slept in last night have set your hair and you have been sticking to the Boudoir beauty tips so your skin looks luminous.  You are ready for your Photo Shoot but your husband’s out-of-town meeting was cancelled at the last minute.  How are you going to explain the arrival of two strangers, carting bags and boxes of gear, at your front door?

Well in this case the shoot was more for the woman than the man so there was no surprise put at risk. 

You have survived, you have accomplished and you have done it while balancing all of the many roles you play, which include, but are not limited to, mother and wife.

It was an honour to help Elena capture her strength, joy and grace in images she will always be able to enjoy.
