    I’ve photographed their family story starting with their wedding, to their maternity session when they were expecting their first, to Logan’s newborn session. And now look at him…He’s growing up so fast!

    I was so excited when Megan asked me to photograph this amazing time in their lives, and also a little nervous since Megan is a talented photographer with such a genuine, pure, and unique style.  She rocks. Check out her work here if you want to feel a whole range of tug-at-your heart emotions: http://www.megankellerphotography.com/index2.php

    As I was getting ready for their session I was remembering my Elementary school days.  Why? Because Megan’s Mom Mrs. Bauer was my favourite Elementary school teacher. She was (and still is) the most patient, engaging, and fun music teacher IN THE WORLD.  She had this commanding yet gentle fun way of gaining the whole school’s attention during assembly.  She would clap a rhythmic little series, and we would clap back.  Vermilion peeps, you know what I’m talking about, there’s undoubtedly clapping going on in your mind right now and if I say “Ta Ta Tee Tee Ta”, you will revert back to your Vermilion Elementary School days.

    So onto more of the story…Megan is creative, talented and musical. We grew up together in the same church and I watched her grow in talent and beauty. The best part about Megan is her authentic, quirky, fun, and genuine personality.  She later fell in love with Kyle who is a funny, kind, and gentle soul. They are a PERFECT match. He’s also a talented musician and they would often lend their musical talent to the Sunday morning worship team. After I moved to Leduc, I was back in Vermilion to shoot a wedding and I ran into Megan at the wedding. She told me she had a passion for photography and I told her about Hope Walls who I was taking workshops from in Edmonton. Megan took the workshops the next year, and we had the opportunity to both be a part of team “Clickin’ Cancer’s Butt” photographing the Edmonton Relay for Life a few years ago.

    Fast forward to today…Megan and Kyle have a sweet, curious, full-of-energy 2 year old little boy named Sully, and baby #2 on the way. Yesterday, I was lucky to capture this incredible stage in their lives. I was so excited when Megan told me her Mom would be coming along to the session, it brought back great childhood memories and I wanted to clap when I saw her. 😉

    Without further adieu…Meet the BEST music teacher in the world, Mrs. Bauer (who is obviously head-over-heels in love with her grandson)
