    Little Lyla

    Little Lyla came over for her first photo shoot at 9 days old!

    She is so sweet, alert, and beautiful. If she looks older than 9 days it’s because she weighed 10 pounds at birth! Mom and Dad are naturals and they make such a beautiful family. Congratulations!

    Married in the Mountains!

    My eldest sister Darlene (there are 6 girls in my family) married her long-time love Cory in Jasper over the week-end.  The moment I met Cory I instantly liked him and went as far to tell Dar that if for some reason it didn’t work out between them, he would still be part of the family.  Lucky for us, their love evolved just as we’d hoped, and I’m so happy to now call him my brother-in-law.

    The ceremony was held at the Lobstick Lodge which overlooks the beautiful mountains of Jasper.  My sister was glowing with happiness as she walked down the aisle.  Our Mom and Cory’s Mom stood up for the couple with pride.

    With family and friends dabbing the tears from their eyes, the happy couple exchanged vows.

    We took a few pictures on the balcony before getting ready to head out to Pyramid Lake for more pictures.

    Darlene swaps out these fab boots for…

    …the comfort and style of her mukluks and off to Pyramid Lake we go!

    Darlene was skipping with excitement as we made our way to the look-out point!  Her excitment was infectious, I grinned the entire time I was taking pictures.

    I had to include this picture to show you how cold it was.  The night before the wedding, the temperature dipped below -30, so we were fortunate to only deal with -16 at the time of these pictures.

    However…they did a great job of keeping each other warm 🙂

    We literally only had a few minutes of light before the sun set on the top of the mountains and shed this brilliant flare onto the pictures!  I’m not sure if I was shaking from the cold or the excitement as these amazing rays spilled into the frame!
