JEANNE AND GUY GOLDEN HOUR IN JALISCO, MEXICO

This gallery is a very special one for me. I did this session when I was visiting my mother and step-father in Jalisco, Mexico. The absolute depth of their love and friendship was my constant inspiration throughout the years. From being a teenager and witnessing them snog in the kitchen as though they were just a couple of kids in love, to fulfilling their retirement dreams in Lake Chapala, Mexico together. They’ve worked so hard all of their lives, raised and supported their children and continue to do so. They have have explored the world and continue to embark on new and exciting adventures together. To see them so happy just fills up my heart so much it could burst. I was blessed in life to grow up witnessing the most genuine kind of love and companionship between them and I feel just as blessed to have had the opportunity to capture it. It’s important for a daughter to see her mother being treated with respect, support and care from their partner in life. Sometimes love just blooms when you least expect it and your life fills out in a way you never knew it could. Guy not only brought the BEST Dad jokes into our lives, but also gave me two amazing siblings who I am so incredibly grateful for. Photography has given me a window into the souls of those I love most and I couldn’t be more overjoyed to share these moments. I definitely cried while editing this session, and I can only hope everyone in the world gets to experience this kind of unconditional love in their life.

There was a beautiful pitbull named Koby who was living on the property where we were staying and he eagerly joined in for some photo fun as well! I still cannot get over his ADORABLE smile.
(I definitely fed him a lot of steak during my stay.)

CARLY AND JARED ADVENTURES IN THE EDMONTON RIVER VALLEY

I, Chanel, met Carly 7 years ago, when I got my first job serving at this bar called Outlaws Roadhouse located in Edmonton, Alberta.
It was both our first day on the job, and Carly and I were only ones serving.
Neither of us had prior waitressing experience, but we had each others backs, and pulled it off like pros!
We became good friends ever since that day.
I think it's imperative to note this girl could pull off daisy dukes and cowgirl boots like no other! 
One day, Jared became a customer at Outlaws... and the rest is history.
I remember the classic girls bathroom conversations we had about Jared,
so it was seriously a blast to spend a day capturing their love all of these years later!
We went to the Edmonton River Valley for our session and
Carly even decided to rock some cowgirl boots just like the Roadhouse babe I've always known her to be. 
I truly adore witnessing these amazing women who have blessed me with their friendship find the love they absolutely deserve in life.
I think it's safe to say these two would make anyone's heart melt.
