Meet Brianna, a Tisdale SK graduate. She contacted me in the early spring, “because you are the best photographer in the area, and you seem like a nice person.”
*Can you hear my heartstrings being pulled?*
She’s a sporty girl, who loves volleyball and country music.
Brianna and I chatted extensively about her graduation session. After months of getting to know each other via Snapchat, we finally met up for her photoshoot in July. We met up at a park in the middle of Tisdale, and started her photoshoot among sounds of children laughing, vehicles passing through town, and wind...
Karly is the kind of girl who embodies femininity and grace. Let's check out her graduation session.
Without needing much coaching at all, she intuitively flowed from one pose to the next. In tune with her body, able to feel the types of poses that most flatter. Perhaps this can be credited to her dancing experience.
Whatever it is, it’s lovely. Look at her confidence! She totally glows.

Grandparents Gord and Susan were quick to introduce themselves and shake my hand. I then realized I didn’t, myself,...
Cassidy graduated this year from Choiceland, SK. Her family and I met up at Nipawin Regional Park for our session together in the trees.
Immediately after this family portrait of the Whitrow family, all four of them made goofy faces and expressions toward the camera, and burst out laughing! They knew how to be serious, and also how to let loose and be silly.
Cassidy's good friend Sheldon came along as her escort. He's a soft-spoken guy, and really let her shine that day. Every girl in heels needs a tall handsome escort who lets...
Mataya's graduation in Zenon Park, SK was cause for celebration! [Especially since I got to work with her again!] Check out her pre-graduation session after you're done here.
For now, let's gush over her graduation day photos!
Mataya's family gathered to celebrate with her. Her sister, Brittany, even came home all the way from BC! There's no way she'd miss her baby sister's special day!
Let's not forget about Mataya's escort and boyfriend. He was looking dapper, himself. Happy graduation to you, Levi!
Oh! And Mataya's best friend, Chloe, made an appearance!...
The Kapeller family invited me out to their farm near Arborfield, SK to celebrate Jordan's graduation from high school. His good friend Mataya connected us by referral after her pre-graduation session last fall. (So here's a little shout-out to Miss Mataya: Thanks for sending Jordan and his family my way!) Have a look at what we got up to:
Jordan's grad session was delightfully rural and masculine. He's into tractors... antique vehicles... quads... he even has his pilot's license. I mean this is a real guy's guy we're talking about here.
I could tell there is a lot of love...
I've known Mataya for a few years, but we hadn't spoken in a while. When she contacted me about pre-graduation photos out of the blue, I was super stoked (a) to catch up and (b) to photograph a total beauty!
UPDATE: Mataya has now graduated. Check out that session here.
This girl is fun, smart and friendly, all wrapped up in pretty packaging.
Mataya had a few ideas for her pre-grad session, including this "Grad 2016" chalkboard that her dad made for her.
We did some quick family photos with her dad, brother, and fur-baby. Then she and I played in the autumn grass together for a while.
I'd like you to meet Miss Amy. She excitedly received her high school diploma this June, from St Mary High School.
We shot the entire session on Amy's family acreage, just outside of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. The abundance of space and setting fed my spontaneous side, and we bounced from one end of the yard to the other, making use of everything available.
During our graduation session together, family was casually filing in for a barbecue to celebrate her important milestone. As we made our way to the long acreage driveway lined with trees, we noticed that Uncle Bill...
