Here I post full stories of wedding days, engagement adventures, my families having fun and dreamy maternity sessions. I really like to capture my clients as they are, not what I want them to be, and I believe that shines through the photos. Welcome, and get inspired by these stories.
A common thing I hear is, ” why would you want to live in Fort St. John?” When I moved up here I felt similar coming from living in Edmonton, where everything is at your finger tips, literally. This small town has grown on me though and when I get to go out a do sessions like this it makes me love it that much more!
Jason and Janine just got married a little over a year ago, no they didn’t waste time but I mean, why wouldn’t you want to have a tiny human to enjoy the rest of your life with? These two were a little on the fence about getting maternity pictures done. Janine reached out and asked some questions about them and I let her know my take on them. I always regretted not getting them done and wanted her not to. She also expressed that they loved the canola fields and didn’t want a ton of photos…. Well once she read my blog LINK HERE about what makes a maternity session I told her I would be taking more than a couple pictures. You can tell why I wanted to take more than just a couple once you start yo scroll. EVERYTHING was perfect for this session . All the vendors are link below! I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do and the couple does!
Jason and Janine you will make amazing parents!! Can’t wait to see little peanut when he or she comes <3

All the laughs were settling when the mother of the groom started to talk again. She said she had found a toast that she felt fit Josh and Tianah, “May your love be modern enough to survive the times and be old fashioned enough to survive forever.”
Josh and Tianah are one of those couples where everyone knew it was meant to be, and when you see them together you can see why! A lot of you may be thinking, they look so young! Yes, you are right, 19 years old and saying “I do.” I was one of those too so I guess I’m a little bit biased but I think it is more fun growing up with someone by your side than “figuring it out” on your own. These two can grow old and probably see their 60th wedding anniversary, I love that kind of love!
J&T decided to get married in the backyard of Josh’s parents house. Prayers were definitely answered on my part because the cloud cover was absolute perfection all morning and afternoon. Covid made their guest list go down quite a bit but you could tell the people attending truly loved and supported them.
I don’t think there was a dry eye in the audience when Tianah walked down the aisle, including me. Seeing Josh’s reaction touched everyone, he was in awe. They did a celtic binding ceremony as well as a parents prayer. I love those special touches couples include in their ceremony.
We went on a little adventure to get to the portrait location. By adventure I mean head hitting the ceiling of the truck, mud bogging. There were so many laughs as well as screams but Josh knew how to handle the road being the country boy he is. The location was definitely worth every bit of the journey out. The view was the best in all of Fort St. John. We could see rain clouds rolling in so I had to work fast! We all got wet but J & T were totally fine with it and I was so thankful because we got some pretty amazing photos.
The rest of the evening was full of seriously good food, entertaining speeches and dessert that I had trouble stopping eating.
Josh & Tianah, I am so happy our paths crossed. I truly believe God had His hand in you choosing me to do your photos. Your wedding was one that I will always remember and laugh about. Looking forward to seeing how God uses you two to change the world <3
