My Story

“Today you are YOU, that is TRUER than true. There is NO ONE alive who is YOUER than YOU!” Dr. Suess

My name is Carmalee…many call me Carm. I am a mom to three boys, a wife to an amazing redhead, a daugter, sister and a friend. I am blessed to also be a photographer in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada.

I absolutely love Dr Suess! I live by this quote and am always trying to be the best that I can be. A better mom, a better wife, a better daughter, a better friend and a better photographer.

I love children.  I believe that every child should have the opportunity to live life to its fullest. I support organizations like Kids Forever and the Tiny Light Foundation.

Stories reach the deepest part of me. My favorite photographs come from storytelling sessions where kids get to be themselves and imagination sessions designed specifically for children to go on interest based adventures.

My family is the core of who I am – nothing in this world is more important to me than them!

If you are interested in capturing the spirit of your family or the imagination of a child you have found the right place.

I hope we can become friends. Yep all of us…but that’s me…amongst the boys that I love most!
