Back Alleys of Kelowna

I am always amazed by the ‘braveness’ of my winter models! They are always willing to ‘take one for the team’, and act as if it isn’t -10 and freakin’ freezing!

Jade was amazing this day. She is a natural in front of the camera and with her short sleeved sweater, she rocked the weather and her poses. And while Crissy and Jason were the center of attention, she was quick to scout out the outtake pipes of the buildings heating systems. These were great little back alley heaters in between shoots.

Crissy, as usual, looked incredible in a dress she bought at the White House Black Market store. And with Jason close behind to help with walking in high heels on icy street corners, these three made for a great photo shoot in the alleyways of Kelowna’s downtown.

Christmas Sparkle

There is something special about the smiles and little looks between a mom and her daughter. Mom is that person that hugs you when your sad, tickles you till you burst, brushes your hair before bedtime and never forgets to tuck you in.

From what I could tell on this day in my studio, this mom and daughter are no different. The love that was flying around the room could have knocked Cupid on his butt!

There is nothing like little girls’ and their momma’s high heels. It may have taken a few seconds to get her little feet into the shoes, but once she had those shoes on, Kolby rocked those black pumps like nobody else’s business.

Thank you Leah and Kolby for a wonderful photo shoot! I feel so lucky to have a job that let’s me meet ladies like you.


Snow Day!

As I drove up the drive to their 66 acre property, I could see the potential for some great photos. Beautiful snow-covered fences and trees, a gorgeous view overlooking the area, and as long as we watched out for the random horse ‘you-know-what’, it was a great spot for some family photos.

Jody and Doug with their two teenage girls did an amazing job of ‘not looking cold’ on a very cold Canadian winter day. It may have taken a few minutes for the smiles to warm up, but with just enough prodding and goofy sisterly love, all four were photo ready!

To Doug and his harem of fabulous ladies, thank you for a wonderful, winter wonderland afternoon.
