It was a blustery afternoon when I headed out the door to meet Alex and Nadia for their engagement session. Wind and lip gloss are never a good combination I thought. After a few texts with Nadia we agreed that it was worth going ahead. The wind did eventually simmer down, and we were able to get some beautiful autumn shots. The autumn Kootenay light is so pretty. It's always nice incorporating the furry family members into a session as well. Looking forward to shooting their wedding next September.

Chris and Samantha {married}

This past Saturday I had the pleasure of capturing Chris and Samantha's wedding. A beautiful day, for a beautiful couple. The mountains acted as the perfect backdrop for their nuptials held at the Kootenay Lakeview Lodge, in Balfour, BC. They wanted to create a destination wedding feel right at home in the Kooteanys for all their family and friends to come stay and enjoy the festivities through out the whole weekend. Thank you for having us capture your day, and thank you to Jackie Postnikoff for joining me.

My sister makes THE best Raspberry Mojito I've ever had! I have been meaning to post her recipe for a while now, and this grey and blustery (non) summer weather gave me the time and motivation to get on it! Will be the perfect drink to sip out back tomorrow after a sunny day of working in the yard. Makes a pitcher...and is just as thirst quenching and yummy sans rum! {her kids go nuts for the non alcoholic versions}. Perfect time of year to go pick those berries, and enjoy a refreshing drink! Recipe Below. Raspberry Mojito You will need: - 9 Limes (and a juicer. I found a inexpensive hand press at winners) - 3/4 cup Sugar - 1 1/2 cups of white rum - mint - Raspberries **Juice 9 limes in a pitcher. Add 3/4 cup of sugar, 1 1/2 cups white rum, and mint and most of the raspberries (I save some of the berries to garnish). Mix together. Add ice and fill the rest of the pitcher with club soda. Serve adding a few full berries to each glass. ** When you make too much....Or you want to try something new: pour into an ice cube tray and freeze. Pull out of freezer after frozen and put cubes in blender. Mix with just enough water to blend. ;) Happy Friday! Enjoy ~ xo Lisa.

I had the pleasure of capturing some family and maternity images for this sweet family. Marika and I go way back, when we randomly met each other in Vancouver, when we worked at the same hair salon. She is one of the sweetest humans I know, and it's been such an honor to be able to capture their journey as the family grows. So sweet to also capture their daughter at this precious age, as she is looking forward to becoming a big sister! ~xo Lisa.

Spring Family Session

I have to admit, I have not been taking the time to update my blog. At all. Social media takes over, and updating those accounts have been where I've been spending my time. So my apologies for letting this blog slide. A few weeks back, I met with this super sweet family, to do a extended family session. It was a gift for their mom, and what a sweet idea! Was a super sunny warm spring day, and was great to take advantage of the wonderful spring weather we have been having!
