If you like Lorde, you're bound to like Broods too! Coincidentally they are also from New Zealand too!



Happy Monday!

Black Yaya :: Music Monday

Monday, April 7, 2014

So about 7 years ago, I was dragged out on a Friday or Saturday night by my good friend Alida to a "social club" in downtown Calgary called BrokenCity. I remember not being excited about being put into a social situaion where I don't know most of the people but I knew Alida wasn't going to let me bail because I'm an introverted lame-oh. Luckily, I've got some great friends. I remember the venue was super small, and I had no idea what to expect from the musical guest we had all come to see. There was some opening act that we all enjoyed so-so. We were all hanging around chatting over of drinks of pop and water and then, the main act came on. His name was Montag and he was so very very different then anything I'd ever heard on the radio. I was basically the only person on the floor, about 3 feet in front of him, dancing like Carlton from Fresh Prince. I loooved it! He was this one-man band with a voice synthesizer, a small toy-like piano, and I maybe an accordian? I was literally on clound nine!

Since then, Alida has continued to enlighten me with good music and as well as my other good friend Layla. See, I've got these two hipster best friends who know good music like nobody else I know. Getting together with them and sharing music we've all found is one of my favorite things to do!

I have been contemplating a regular weekly post for about two years now. I have never been able to come up with something that I know I'd be happy to keep posting about though. When a couple of friends asked me for some new music recently, I figured I can share the stuff I've found with any of you wonderful people who stop by my little home on the web who may be interested.

So I present to you, in no particular order, the first installment of Music Monday.

First up, because it is currently 13 degrees in Edmonton right now. Can I get a whoop whoop? I thought I'd share a favorite upbeat fun tune you can spring clean too!





Happy Monday everyone!

Tycee + Connor :: engaged

Sunday, March 30, 2014


There are some people you meet and you just know they are great people. Tycee was one of those people for me when I first met her. When she messaged me about being engaged I was so excited for her! I only hoped her fiancé was as great as she was and he just so happened to be!

They are getting married on a day where I am already currently booked, but we still were able to get together for engagement pictures that are just some of my favorite images! Two bucket list items were checked. Pictures of a couple skating together and an indoor shoot. 

We shot at Hawrelak Park and Duchess Bakery ( which is ahhhmazing by the way) both in Edmonton. 









































Haley + Brett :: engaged

Friday, March 21, 2014




It has been engagement session season the past few weeks. It has been so busy are so great! I got to spend some time here with Haley and Brett in Calgary at the North Glenmore Park in February. We spent some extra time in our cars between locations warming up since we shot the session during the 
Canada vs USA mens hockey game during the olympics :o) 

These two braved such cold weather, I really hope we have some great warm weather for their May wedding! They most definitely deserve it. Really, don't we all? SO done with winter!
