One week ago, today, I went to bed feeling ironically burnt out. It was ironic because I had just preached on the story of Elijah. Specifically right after his colossal mountain top moment with the prophets of Baal, which ended with God showing himself real in front of hundreds of people and Elijah outrunning a chariot on a 36-mile run.

Book and Study Downloads

Some of you might know that I wrote a Bible Study. Two years ago, Aurora started asking about one and the more I looked the more I realized that there is very little out there for teens and pre-teens who want more than a fluffy, overly simple daily devotional.

I talked to other parents and heard that they had found the same issues. So, I wrote one. It turned into a big and timely endeavor. I then learned that publishing is very costly now unless you already have a huge fan base. So, I'm giving it away. I may still do physical books one day, but for now my little study is entering the world of digital books.

If you or your kids want to download click on the link. I'd love to hear any feedback you have. Who I Am Now A Bible study about positional truths for teens and pre-teens. Deep biblical truths do not have to be difficult to understand. This study works well for groups or individuals. It can b…

[11/18/16]   We are all set up for a busy day of mini sessions tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing everyone!


I'm finishing up the Lerch family gallery today, then moving on to Katie's family, and weddings.
In the meantime here is one from an engagement session last night.


This past weekend was a beautiful weekend for a wedding and it is always a pleasure working with Faith Shelley Photography. Here is one of my favourites so far.


Mr. Cutie-pie and his buddy Napoleon.


A funny little outtake from our Easter Mini Sessions.

No rabbits were harmed at all, she has no teeth yet....

[03/08/16]   We still have some openings for Easter mini sessions this Saturday.

[03/04/16]   Faith and I are doing Easter Mini sessions again this year. It is coming up fast - next weekend (Saturday). Some of you have already contacted us, if you haven't there are still a few spots open!


A little sweetie pie I photographed recently. She was a month old already but still so itty bitty and such a little sweet heart.

[11/13/15]   If you have emailed me and I haven't responded, please forgive me. I am DROWNING in spam and sometimes miss a real email amid the thousands of spam messages. I am working on a better filter or a new plan.


Working on this wedding today.

[09/23/15]   I'm all finished with Trevor and Kate's wedding edits, yah! and on to finishing up Brock and Anna's now.


Finishing up with Kate's wedding edits this week. :)


It is always a privilege to be a part of a wedding, but when you get to shoot the wedding of a girl you knew when she was just a tiny adorable toddler it is even more special.

Anneliese, you were a gorgeous bride!

[08/29/15]   Happy wedding day Brock and Anneliese!


A sneak peek for Trevor and Kate who stayed calm and collected despite a crazy wind storm that destroyed one of their tents just before the wedding guests began arriving, and a sudden downpour during their first dance (which was totally romantic in my opinion.)

I wish you both all the best!


I have to share another one...


Just over a week ago Megan and David tied the knot. It was a beautiful wedding and a beautiful day (a little hot but with a nice breeze) and they were a very fun couple (and wedding party) to work with.
It was hard choosing which picture to share first!

Congratulations guys!

[07/07/15]   Just gotta say, it is a wonderful thing when you get to work with people you really like and enjoy working with. I am so blessed to have my friend Faith Shelley Photography to collaborate with on mini sessions and weddings.
I will miss working with you this month, Faith!


I had a crazy fall a little over a week ago and almost broke my back but am finally getting back to edits now.

This wedding was beautiful! They were calling for rain but thankfully it held off and we had a beautiful evening.

Amy was meticulous with beautiful details all over the farm and in her bouquet. It was a really beautiful wedding and was fun to photograph it with Faith.


A sneak peak for Julie. This is one of my favourites.

[04/04/15]   If anyone DIDN'T get the link yet to download their Easter Mini pictures please message me.


LOL I couldn't not post this one. I made a deal that I would take and give them a crazy picture if they then did real smiles for me without silly faces.


He was pretty sure that this is the real Easter bunny. :)
Napoleon really liked him.


silly baby smiles



[03/27/15]   Ok, there are more that I would like to share but that's all for tonight. :)


awe...these guys....


Joe could run for president with his hairdo, at least i told him that. I think he looked presidential. :) (Priministerial?)
