Jason & Andrea- Winter Maternity Session- Lloydminster Family Photographer

This winter light takes my breath away and I couldn’t have chosen a more perfect couple to join me for this day! I was a bit worried taking an 8 month pregnant couple out on a -30 day but Andrea insisted the cool air felt great! We stuck to the forest area to keep shelter from the wind and I will admit it wasn’t all that bad! At the end of our session we even took a few more chilly shots in the cat tail field and then quickly made our way back to the trees for our last few shots of the day! Andrea and Jason even brought some cute little baby props to pose with in the excitement for little (Mrs./Mr.) Baby Ratke.

Hope you enjoy!

Ashley & Sacha- Engagement Session- Lloydminster Wedding Photographer

These two got cozy on a warm winters day.

Ashley and Sacha will be tying the knot this July in Cold Lake, Ab and I was so excited when they came to see me for their pre-wedding photos! Here are just  a few of my favourite from the day. I can’t think of another couple more excited about photography; their wedding day is said to have TONS of details and I can simply not wait to get my hands on it all…. well my camera on it all to be exact… I better bring a few extra memory cards!

I had so much fun shooting this beautiful couple their love was unreal!

Janelle & Cody- Fall Maternity Session- Lloydminster Family Photographer

Don’t these -three- just light up the blog!!!

On a dreamy fall evening I managed to scope out one of the last colourful trees in the city. I was so glad we managed to squeeze this shoot in as Janelle and Cody had their baby (Girl) shortly after these were taken!

Welcome sweet little baby Sophia!!


Leanne & Steve- Elopement – Lloydminster Wedding Photographer

I couldn’t have been happier when Leanne and Steve asked me to photograph their elopement!! Leanne has been a close family friend for years and after meeting Steve we soon realized that she would one day marry that Goof Ball!! Their impromptu marriage consisted of only the closest and dearest family and friends, making their day a very intimate relaxed day.

Wishing these two all the best and safe returns home from their beautiful honey moon getaway in Jamaica !

The Lenko Family- Fall Family Session – Lloydminster Family Photographer

This gorgeous family was an absolute treat to shoot! Max was a good sport with his poor little hurt arm, I told him we matched because I had a hurt knee and wore a brace just like his!! If I remember correctly he gave me a huge grin and then buried his face in his Mommas shoulder! Needless to say I wore Max’s arm brace on my head as my “Hat” for the rest of the shoot! It sure scored some pretty cute giggles out of him  thats for sure!

Hope you enjoy!

Chelsey I a very talented, caring, understanding, and super easy going photographer. We had a great night with Chelsey and she was so pateint with our little guy who was not into pictures at first. She can make any situation a fun time. I highly recommend Chelsey to any family, especially if you have little children. We have some great memories that will last a life time and some amazing family pictures!
