The Poilievre Family

This family is one of my favourites because they are MY family (plus they are crazy photogenic). Constant and Crystal are my uncle and aunt so when they asked if I would do a session for them at their gorgeous Saskatoon acreage I, of course, said YES!

The lighting was magical, the weather was gorgeous and the location was amazing.

We incorporated their vintage wagon, old car, vintage tractor and of course Constant’s 1967 Mustang convertible into their session.

Here are my favourites from Constant, Crystal, Zach and Zoe’s family session.

Couples Q & A Journal

I  L O V E  this gift idea for any couple! It’s a 3 year Q & A journal that provides a question for every day of the year and room for both partners to write down a short response. This would create a lasting keepsake for any relationship.

Imagine starting one in your first year of marriage and looking back at your answers on your 25th wedding anniversary—such AMAZING concept.

 

Bathtub Caddy

If there is anything I look forward to at the end of the day, especially in the winter, it’s a relaxing bath—sometimes with a glass of wine and a good book. This bathtub caddy is the perfect assistant for that! It rests on the sides of the bathtub and holds your glass of wine, your book or even your tablet.

It even has extending sides so it will fit any bathtub, Jacuzzi, or spa of any shape (straight or circular) up to 42″ wide.

 

Matching Pillow Cases

These are so cute! I adore these “couples” themed pillow cases. There are so many different designs but these are a couple of my favourites that I have come across.

Card Games

One of the things my husband and I will do when we need a break from Netflix is play card games. Our favourite right now is Five Crowns. It’s a really fun card game that you can enjoy with 2-7 players — it’s great for the whole family.

                                                     Warning- this game can be addictive! 🙂

Happy “LOVE” day everyone!!!

 



 

 

 

 

 

Chris and Brooke Engagement-Lloydminster Wedding Photographer-Couples Session

It was an extremely cold and windy day in October when I met Chris and Brooke for their engagement session at Bud Miller Park.  I was worried we would have to cut the session short due to the cold but their connection and love for each other kept them warm and we ended up with some amazing images!

I can’t wait to photograph their wedding this summer.

Congratulations on your engagement Chris and Brooke!

McGillis Wedding-Neilburg SK- Lloydminster Wedding Photographer

From the moment I met Colby and Erika, over coffee at Second Cup, I knew I was going to love photographing their wedding. They were both so relaxed and easy to talk to and their love for each other was very apparent!

While they told me about their locations and some of the ideas they had for the wedding day, I was silently doing a happy dance. It was going to be AMAZING!

Colby and Erika tied the knot on July 23rd 2016 in Neilburg, Saskatchewan. It was a beautiful, outdoor, country wedding with blue and red rustic decor. Their wedding party was super fun and out going which made for some really great shots!

A big thank you to my second shooter and assistant for the day, Kimberly Steier.

Congratulations Colby and Erika!

Andrew and Christina’s Maternity Session

My baby sister is having a baby, and soon!

My sister Christina and her husband (Andrew) are expecting their baby boy any day now (officially she is due July 10th)! We are all so excited and happy for them.

I can’t wait to meet my new nephew and take hundreds thousands of photos of him!

I thought this would be the perfect time to share their maternity session that I did back in May…..
