April and Clayton are a fun couple to hang out with. We had such a great time in the fall sun.

Kristina and Lucas have added one more, extremely cute, miniature human to their family. As you can see, he’s adorable and fits in just perfectly.

A crazy thing happened while we were out. The wind was strong that day. While walking down the path, we heard a big bang. We looked to see where it came from and didn’t see much of anything. Then there were large cracking noises and we watched a tree fall over and crash to the ground. It was very cool!

Aron and Christille’s wedding was the highlight of my day. I’m also certain that it was the highlight of their day, so when we got down to the business of recording the memory of it, we just had a blast. Normally I get frustrated with bright sun, but today, we made it work for us. Wandering and exploring around the temple grounds, we discovered a few new angles that have become favourites for me now.

I loved their suggestions, and together, I think we got an amazing set of photos. My usual composite photo was expected, but Aron came up the idea of a kind of time-lapse. You can see in the last photo below that, in our opinion, it worked out spectacularly well.

JD and Savannah chose the scenic Kananaskis country to begin their life together. The beautiful weather and grand mountain views made it all the more special.

Rachelle is my little sister.  She’s got a great family and they’re fun to be around.  It’s not often that family photos are taken in a hospital setting, but I think that these worked out great and we had a lot of fun doing it.

Christmas at Mt Baldy is one of our family highlights. My son, William, and I snowshoed to the top of the ski hill, which had been shut down during an ownership change. I love the views up there. It`s a tough hike, but it was worth it.

Winter weddings aren’t always easy, or predictable. Adam and Sara were blessed to have good weather for their wedding. It was mostly a concern for driving, since the photos were all planned to be taken indoors. The formals and reception were taken at the Delta South Hotel. There is a grand staircase that served as an excellent backdrop for the photos.

Christmas parties are always fun. I spent the evening with Sleep Country Canada. And I stayed awake the whole time!

We began the evening with portraits, then progressed to an awards ceremony after dinner, and finished off with music, dancing, and merry-making.

Until now, I had never had the opportunity to be part of a traditional Catholic wedding mass. Sam and Michelle gave me that opportunity. The flowery ceremony full of what you might expect: music, candles, pomp. There was so much to take in. I was certainly kept busy. This is just a tiny sampling.
