A beautiful lake along Highway 40 by Mount Kidd in Kananaskis Country.

BACKGROUND: Further south of the ranch where I grew up is the Bar U Ranch.  It’s a national historic site that is dedicated to commemorating the importance of ranching in our country.   I had a day of Petite Sessions ready to be marketed in June of 2013 and we all remember what happened then. The flood. Needless to say, that idea had to be delayed.  It’s 3 years later but I thought this would be a perfect addition to the pop up specials!  I’d love to take photos of a family who’d love to explore the historic site.  There are lots of buildings with gorgeous textures.  Plus the creek, the roads, horses and the trees are all a perfect backdrop for a photo shoot.

WHAT I ASK OF YOU: Travel down to the Bar U Historic Ranch which is about 20 minutes further south of Longview.   Willing to walk around the ranch and get into the spirit of the ranching life!   The site closes at the end of September, so shoot would need to take place before September 30, 2017.

THE SPECIAL:  $150 Session fee.  Travel Fee waived.  Regular a la carte and collection pricing.   Bonus 16×20 Canvas included with any collection purchase!  There are no national park fees this year so there is no cost to get in.   


I constantly have ideas in my heads for different types of shoots that I would love to do.   I will add them here and cross my fingers a family resonates with one of my ideas!


BACKGROUND:   Just like it’s a special time when a new baby comes into the home, a new non-human form is special as well.  A puppy brings SOOO much joy to a home and I want to capture that fun!

WHAT I ASK OF YOU: Just a new little puppy in your home or backyard!   We will have a photo shoot with all of your family, but with puppy taking center stage for lots of the shots!

THE SPECIAL: .  30-45 minute session.  25 files.   $575 includes session and digital files.   Additional products available for purchase at 15% off price.


BACKGROUND: I love my baths!   So, so, so much.  I am craving to do a bathtub shoot.   But I have a bathroom with a small tub and no windows.   Playing, splashing, goofing around with lots and lots of bubbles.

WHAT I ASK OF YOU: Need a bathroom with a big tub and lots of natural light streaming in at some point in the day.   Parents need to be okay with splashing and getting some water and bubbles moved around!!

THE SPECIAL: .  Petite Session.  25 minutes.   $300 includes session and digital files.   Additional products available for purchase at 15% off price.



BACKGROUND:  I just adore all the images I see on instagram and facebook of families enjoying their time at their summer cabins.  We don’t have a cabin ourselves, but it is easy to see how many amazing memories are made at the cabin.  I would love to do a documentary series at a family cabin (or one that you rent) … to really encapsulate what your time at the cabin means to your family.

WHAT I ASK OF YOU: Just invite me to be part of your day!  I will capture the little moments like making lunch, reading on the couch, drinking wine in the yard in the evening light and swinging in the hammock.   And I will capture the bigger ones too like going on a hike, playing on the beach, and gathering around the bonfire.   We will talk beforehand to see if there are any special parts you want captured.  And I’ll even see things you may not that will complete your cabin life story.

THE SPECIAL: .  $150 Session Fee.  ($100 off regular pricing).    Travel Fee Waived.   20% off a la carte and collection pricing.  Bonus:  I may try out some video too if you’re up for it!!


BACKGROUND: My son recently went to stay with cousins who live on a farm.  They had horses, a foal, chickens, dogs, kittens, and cows!   I couldn’t believe I didn’t bring my camera when I dropped him off.   When I picked him up, I tried my hand at video as I am teaching myself that now.  It’s HARD!!   But I’m having lots of fun practicing.  It reminded me how much I absolutely love the country as it takes me back to my own growing up on a ranch.

WHAT I ASK OF YOU: A day in the life on the farm.   It will be all lifestyle … nothing posed!  Just me following around capturing whatever you do on the farm or ranch.   Feeding the animals, riding your horse, collecting eggs, making a pie, cleaning the stalls, playing with the kittens, whatever you do!!

THE SPECIAL: .  $150 Session Fee.  ($100 off regular pricing).    Travel Fee Waived.   20% off a la carte and collection pricing.  Bonus:  I may try out some video too if you’re up for it!!


BACKGROUND: I just went to the Calgary Folk Fest this past weekend and found this darling romper in the arts market.  I just could not resist adding it to my collection!   Can you not picture your darling one year old in this?!?!    In your backyard, on a beach, in the park,  by the river…. oh, my goodness, so many options!

WHAT I ASK OF YOU: The romper is size 12 months.   We can talk about what location will best suit your little one!

THE SPECIAL: .  Petite Session:   $300 will cover a 20 minute session and 5 digital files with five corresponding 5×7 prints.  Additional files and products available for purchase.  This is so darling, you may want to have a canvas of this one!!!
