portraits by paper deer; banff national park

When you put on the rare nail polish and cut your own hair in anticipation of a "no dishes, just b*tches" girls weekend in Banff!  Friend Jayme, of The Paper Deer Photography was kind enough to take these pretty portraits of me at Lake Louise.  (FRESH edits)  We raised a bit of attention,  pretending we were the only ones at the lake  #yolo
The nail polish is now grown out & chippy - that's why it's rare - and don't be measuring my hairs but I do have these pretty captures to remember. 
Remember that one time we weren't moms but adventurers for the weekend? Yeah, me too.

kyla's grad & send off session; kootenays family photographer

I adore Kyla's quirky family!
Call it a grad, summer, family or send-off-to-college session, this family brought their game.
Maybe it's that they remind me of my own: real casual, styled simply and self-proclaimed "awkward".
Except I don't care what they tell me, they are boss in their images.  I just love em!  And I included plenty of goofy outtakes in their gallery to prove it.
Mostly, I hope that you showed me who you are & that I saw you.  Really saw you. That's forever my goal.
