I met Jocelyn through photography when I moved to Vernon, and our friendship is something I cherish. We became fast friends and I was blessed to help her document this amazing time in her life when her littles are this age and still as protective and adoring to their siblings.
As you will see flipping through these photographs, Jocelyn and her husband Carlos have loved each other well and it is reflected in the joy and love their children show to each other and those they meet.
The Morris family is a family full of laughter and joy and their family session yesterday was so much fun to photograph. Stuart had contacted me before mothers day and wanted to book a session to honor his amazing wife, well she did hint it quite heavily to him! I am so delighted to share their family session as it is full of vibrancy that shines through each family member’s individual personalities.
Diane you are truly a wife and mother of character and I think the world of you as a role model, how fun it is to spend an evening in the warm summer rain surrounded by the jewels that are your children.
Please like, share, or comment on how amazing you think this family is, lets show them the love!!!
How stunning is Diane, what a beautiful soul and exceptional beauty.
Over 3 and a half years ago I had the honor of photographing Kenny and Lisa’s Manning Resort Wedding. IT was a weekend celebration that submersed me right into the family activities as well as staying with the entire family in a lodge. I remember how much I enjoyed photographing their wedding and was overjoyed when I got a phone call a week before Mothers Day.
Lisa’s mom contacted me about a Family Session for her daughter as a birthday gift which was perfectly nestled close to mothers day. I count it a blessing and an honor to be asked to photograph previous clients in the new seasons of their life, for Lisa that meant becoming a Mommy.
Emery I am told is a burst of sunshine with smiles to spare, and boy did mom and dad try to get her to smile. Between their laughter and mine Emery was confused, but with a little tickle on the tummy from her daddy she lit up!

Being a wedding photographer, sometimes it feels like I have the priviledge of making lifelong friends with just the click of a shutter. From the first moment a bride contacts me with her heart a flutter; ideas pouring from her fingertips onto ourContact Usform, to the interactions back and forth by email which always remind me of giddy schoolgirls passing notes in class about a boy they liked.
I get to go on coffee dates, have a fun filled evening of appetizers and drinks, chat about “the details” and reminise on how our men proposed. It warms my heart every time a bride first contacts me to the moment I deliver her images; we become kindred friends.
Denika contacted me the winter of 2013 after viewing my work with her uncle, a fellow photographer and friend. While I was busily planning my own wedding and knee deep in preparation to move to Yellowknife, Denika knew I was going to be living in her home town and it made her decision a simple “Yes!”
I was truly honoured to be asked to be a part of this magical moment in Denika’s life, and have her as my first Yellowknife bride.
Shawn and Denika have been together for 5 years; what an amazing journey they have made thus far: Denika told me that she had started planning her wedding a year previous to this date when they found out they were expecting their beautiful baby girl. On July the 26th 2013, she went into labour and on the 27th little baby Kaiyer was born into this world.
Denika went on to say “July 26th of this year  I went into labour, so we felt a life event was fitting for next year as well.”
So, on the very day her life changed one year previous, Denika woke again with joy and anticipation. Today, she would marry the man whom her soul loves deeply.
This is their wedding story:
This is Kaiyer, who just a day after their wedding would turn 1. With a wedding and a birthday planned all on the same weekend; Kaiyer, mommy, and daddy had one BIG weekend planned.
Shawn stood tall as he waited for Denika at the site of their “first look” photos. Shawn radiated pure happiness!
Their first look kiss was so sweet. So many moments in their relationship had lead to this kiss.
Shawn and Denika bought one another gifts, and as Denika opened a small box she made a giddy sound. Shawn had bought her a beautiful double strand pearl bracelet. Shawn was equally impressed by his wife’s gift to him, a stunning Bulova watch.
Shawn had a custom ring made with Yellowknife Gold, it was a stunning ring that complimented her diamonds.
Denika wanted her bouquet to hold something old, a memento. The lace wound around her bouqeut was from her mothers original wedding dress. I absolutely adore when brides incorporate their past into their future!
Shawn’s grooms-men were a riot, and the reception definitely confirmed their grade ‘A’ humor.
Denika kept her side of the bridal party tight knit. With her sisters as bridesmaids and her brother as her “man of honour”.
As the bridal party waited for the geusts to arrive, Denika and her bridesmaid (and man of honour) sat in the sheer tent that stood at the top of the aisle. A little mummy and me time with Kaiyer was needed, and snuggles followed.
Their officiant was none other than the Mayor of Yellowknife, Mark Heyck.
And then it all began…
One family, joined in unity.
