Men Become Boys Again.

What do you get when you combine a 2 time World Champion team roper, a great host family, delicious BBQ, Monsoon rains, and a handful of aspiring team ropers? You get a bunch of grown men acting like kids on Christmas morning. Each and every one of their faces light up when then man from Stephenville Texas, Walt Woodard speaks to them. Walt has a great sense of humour that really helps to lower the guard of these cowboys so he can “Teach young dogs some old tricks.”

I got the pleasure of spending 2 days with these hard-working cowboys, and cowgirls as they made their journey back to school. Imagine if all schooling was done on a horse in an arena, we’d have a province full of scholars. They gave their undivided attention and truly listened to what he was telling them, wish I could get my kids to learn like that!
Slade and Cami Bowers were amazing hosts; putting out big spreads at meal time, shelter from the torrential rains, and being so well-organized. There wasn’t any wasted time and everything seemed to run smooth, thanks again guys.

There were ropers of all ages, skill level and gender out participating in this two-day school. It was great to see them all laughing and learning together.

If you are looking to buy prints or digital images from the school or the Jackpot please follow the link on the side. If they aren’t up yet please be patient  . Rodeo weekends tend to turn into rodeo weeks. I’ve been away for a while but hope to get these up soon for you to browse through.

Hello world!



Well here I go, diving head first into the 21st century… a few years late.  As a brand new photographer in Northern Alberta I thought it best to get out into the big wide world of cyber space.  I will try to use this blog to keep fans and perspective clients up to date on all the happenings of Moonlit Photography. 

A little about myself; I am a small town girl who would have no hope of surviving in the city.  I like that I live in the middle of nowhere with my 2 kids, 5 horses a handful of cows and my manpanion.  It is spring time now so 4 wheel drive is a daily necessity and my children are the dirtiest kids at school, but at least they play outside and have fun!

I enjoy the western lifestyle and that is reflected in my photography.  I think it’s the simplicity of it that makes it so beautiful.  I also really like to capture the real moments between family members.  It’s the pictures between the posed shots that really show the love in a family.  Clients can come out to my country setting, just minutes outside of Cold Lake, Ab or I will come to you. Either way you can rest assured that your portrait session with me will be a relaxed, fun and memorable experience resulting in pictures you can’t wait to share.
