I  love albums. I’m sentimental, and the thought of looking at your wedding album for years, and showing your kids, and your grandkids, makes my heart happy! Morgan and Jesse’s album is in their hands already, but here is a little peek at it!



This is a 10″x10″ linen album, so the cover is a soft grey fabric and I love it! Grey is definitely one of my favourite colors.


All of the pages are on hinges and lay flat when opened, so no details are lost in the crack, or “gutter.”

I haven’t posted a personal post in awhile, so here is a quick little update on the life of Kinsey…

  • Weddings and family sessions are winding down and I am editing away! Thank you to all of you who let me be your photographer this year! 🙂 I still have some spots before Christmas if you’re looking for snowy Christmas card photos. 🙂

  • I can’t help it – with all of this snow, I’m already thinking about Christmas decor. I don’t decorate for any other season or holiday really, but I love Christmas. I have a 6-year-old’s birthday party next week so I’ll be waiting until after that at least…but not sure how much longer I can leave that tree in the box! I have done a little bit of shopping to get a head start on things, but I am excited to make a couple of things (go me) and get going on gifts! The birthday party has been so fun to plan with my daughter – she is possibly like her mother in that she drew me a list of everything she wanted for her birthday party and checked off each item as she discussed it with me. Down to the colour of the napkins and punch. She is a little planner! I love it.


  • Today was my 1st day of doing a Whole30. Have you ever done one?? I’ve wanted to do it for a couple of years, but was too chicken! Haha I love my carbs. So, one day down, 29 to go. My fridge is stocked with a lot of vegetables. Tomorrow I’ll be doing a lot of food prep and making sure I eat before I go pick up my husband’s birthday cake from Dairy Queen…



  • We finally bought a new kitchen table. Our old chairs were vinyl and starting to fall apart. I bought a “project” table to refinish, and it turned out to be a bigger project than I was up for, so we ended up just buying a new one. And my husband got to say, “I told you so.” 😉 So, now I have two tables to sell. My DIY skills only go so far! 🙂


  • I just got a wedding album in the mail today and I can’t wait to show it off! I’ll be photographing it quickly before I send it off to its new owners!

  • I’ve been reading Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and I feel like it’s sometimes a little hard to get through because every section gives me lightbulb moments and I want to process it before moving on! Love it. I’ve been reading a bit on the treadmill in the mornings. I try to at least warm up doing some walking so I can read (on my iPad)! Or I listen to a podcast.



Hope you had a great October and are looking forward to a new month! 🙂

This shoot was a slightly crazy idea – Kaylee and I agreed to shoot each other’s family photos, and then I talked about going to Waterton, and then Kaylee suggested going together and get them all done on one night, so we ended up in Waterton. It was my first session shot wearing a maxi dress (photos coming soon)! We climbed up the side of a mountain on the road to Red Rock Canyon, and my husband, already nervous about bears, watched a black bear trot down the road towards him as we were way ahead of him up the slope. Luckily for all of us, the bear disappeared down into the trees on the other side of the road from us and we didn’t see it again!

These kids were just the best – cutest, easiest kids to photograph. After we switched off taking photos, we took the kids into the townsite for ice cream, of course! And my three-year-old decided that the Ralph family was so awesome, she was going home with them. She was running to their vehicle with all of their fun kids, and she was pretty disappointed when she learned that she had to come home with us instead.  Thanks Ralphs! You can find Kaylee’s photography at Kaylee Ralph Photography on Facebook.

Amber and Daniel came from Calgary to be married in the Cardston LDS Temple. With the distance between us, the first time we met was on their wedding day. We started shooting and it was like we were longtime friends! They were so awesome to work with, and so were their families! So many laughs and hugs and fun moments on their big day.

These two lovebirds were married in the Cardston LDS Temple, and following their ceremony their friends and family gathered in the courtyard to welcome them as they made their grand entrance as newlyweds! We took their family photos in front of the temple, and then it was just the three of us to take photos on the temple grounds. We had planned to head to a second location, and I just got the feeling that we needed some serious nature – these two love the outdoors, and hiking (Daniel), so when I brought up the idea of heading to Waterton, it took them one second to agree to the idea! Or maybe I hadn’t even finished talking… 😉 I am SO glad we did! We had the time and you just can’t beat those mountain views. This summer has been the calmest summer I remember for shooting there.

Daniel and Amber – I loved meeting you, shooting you, and I wish you all the best in the adventure ahead! 🙂
