I’m grateful to be able to call talented industry peer Jamie Delaine a friend. That didn’t stop the nerves, though, when she asked me about shooting her promo images for her new website by Promise Tangeman! Photographing a fellow photographer can be down right intimidating. But of course, when it came time for the shoot, Jamie was nothing but a delight to work with and together we created some lovely images.

Last Fall, I flew out to Winnipeg for a girls’ weekend with my cousin and dear friend, Kelsey. We drank wine and talked about the challenges of wanting and trying to start a family with no luck. The weekend wrapped up, I flew home, and life carried on…and by Christmas we were both sharing the news with each other that we were pregnant! And only three weeks apart!

It’s been so fun to share in the journey to becoming mothers together and another visit before the babies arrive was definitely in order. This past weekend, Shane and I flew out to visit with Kelsey and her husband Chad and it was wonderful. Like usual. We caught up, relaxed, took pictures, and ate well (maybe a little too well this time ;).

We spent a couple evenings exploring around Winnipeg and documented Chad and Kelsey and their bump. Only four weeks to go for these three…


The next evening, after a day in the city, we visited St Norbert for part two of their maternity session…

She is as spicy as she is sweet. Pretty little Averie Piper smiles sweetly one minute and is off running and exploring the next. This one kept me on my toes during her session in celebration of her second birthday…we ran through rows of flowers at a local farm along with big sister Addie and we had fun. The littlest, brother Asher Scout, has his work cut out for him if he wants to keep up one day ;)

Really, they’re the loveliest bunch of kids and I’m so grateful for the time I get to spend with them as “auntie”.
