Champions de France

Game 7 at home to win the Coupe Magnus couldn’t have been more perfect! Although these photos are not perfect by any means, they still mean so much to me and I am just happy my camera made it out of this day alive. Seb had decided he was done playing hockey in 2012 and we started “normal” life at home in Edmonton. Retiring from Hockey at the age of 25 is not something either of us had expected, and clearly it didn’t last long. His first year back was a year we will never forget. We love you Briançon.

Italian Riviera Bridal Portraits

Lee-Anne and I have spent the past three months organizing this stylized bridal shoot in Manarola, Italy. Morning coffee dates (on Facetime) to plan out every detail, from shoot locations to models & even choosing the wedding dresses so generously provided by Studio Braut. Lee-Anne being in Austria and myself in France made Italy the perfect location to shoot. I’m sad it’s all over but I look forward to the next time I’ll work with Lee-Anne Jarrett Photography. I can’t wait to share more…

Briançon Senior Session

This gorgeous girl just turned 18 and this was her birthday gift from her parents. I was a little nervous going into this shoot having to speak another language, but her father being a photographer made directing her so much easier. Please note that all of Savanah’s smiles are directly attributed to my brutal French.

Old Town Briançon Maternity Session

I am so in love with this city that I am fortunate enough to call home for the next few months. I have too many locations I want to shoot at before heading back home to Canada for the summer. This couple couldn’t have been easier to photograph and I can’t wait to meet baby J who should be making his appearance sometime next week.

Lakefront Family Session

Looking through this session almost takes the chill out of my bones. A beautiful water front home and kids with baby blue eyes to die for made my job easy. I look forward to seeing how this little family has grown next summer.

Maternity

I am certain that all these two will remember from this session is me making a fool of myself. Luckily they will be seeing a lot more of me and my camera over the next few weeks. I can not wait for that middle-of-the-night phone call so I can rush to the hospital and meet their little one. Hurry up baby T.TownsendBlog1TownsendBlog3TownsendBlog4TownsendBlog2

How the Marando’s roll

My girlfriend Kalee is getting married in a few short months so we are in full planning mode. You have to know this; Kalee is what you would get if you combined an Italian “Mobster” Papa and a Ukrainian Mama. A teeny feisty girl who can drink eat anyone under the table! Needless to say, this family can cook! You will not leave their home unsatisfied.
