Sullivan | 9 days | Vancouver Newborn Photographer

Please help me in welcoming baby Sullivan to this awesome family!  I have no doubt that they will have years of crazy adventures ahead and loads of fun together!!

This was such a great session to capture.  Little Sullivan was happy to hang out in the studio with his mommy and I, while his brothers and Dad played outside until it was their turn.  I can appreciate that it’s not very fun for toddlers to hang out in a space that is heated to close to 30 degrees and playing soothing, sleepy music.

When it was time for the boys to come in and participate, they were so fantastic.  They had just the right level of silliness… and love for their new baby brother.   I loved all the expressions we captured!

Rhylee | 5 days | Surrey Newborn Photographer

What a wonderful family to have spent the morning with!  I know that I have a very outgoing personality and can likely pick up a conversation with just about anyone… but that doesn’t come naturally to everyone.

One of the greatest challenges with photography is the ability to get to know someone fast enough to also bring out their natural personality and smile!  It’s never just as easy as picking up the camera and clicking a few ‘good ones’.  My favourite line… oh I just need one or two ‘good ones’… ha!

There are times that we just need patience and time to gain trust.  I loved having the change to talk to these two older siblings… or let’s say I did all the talking 😉  I don’t think they responded to even one of my questions verbally… but clearly the more I kept talking the more they began to trust me and open up their expressions.  What an accomplishment when we got all 3 of them together!!!  I believe this was one of the first times big sister held little Rhylee.  I promised with all I had that she would be safe, she wouldn’t drop her… and it was perfect.

Even though there were very few words spoken back to me, this shy group clearly is one full of love.  These family photos made my heart smile!

Garrett | 10 days | Richmond Newborn Photographer

Welcome to the world baby Garrett!!

There is nothing sweeter then watching a new family bond.  Watch as their hearts expand to a size they didn’t know was possible.  It simply is the best.

I am always so thankful to be witness to such a special time in people’s lives, it truly is such an honour.

The best part is knowing that many years down the road when families look back on these photos, it will bring them right back to how very little they once were.

Rowan | 7 days | Surrey Newborn Photographer

Sweet little Rowan, thank you for the snuggle time!!

This young lady was one of those little gifts to me in the studio:) She slept the entire time, hardly made a sound and never made a mess.  AHHHHH I just love when babies enjoy the photo session like that!

Each family that comes to the studio has the option to choose what ever colours they would like to use.  This month I think I’ve used the same colour combinations in almost every session!!  It must be spring, the soft aqua/teal blue was the most popular for the boys and girls.  I love it too!

I hope these images brighten this wet Sunday morning for all of you:)


Live.Love.Laugh… that’s all we need! | Surrey Family Photographer

If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll have seen this family on the blog before…and each time I post I just gush over how much fun we have each time.

Of course we all want that one photo where everyone is looking at the camera and smiling… but to me, the photos of this family being together, laughing and loving each other’s company are the images that I would want on my walls.

These two boys already have such a bond.  So much love.   These images are just a glimpse into their lives, but I hope it inspires you to play more, have fun with your photos and let kids be kids.  Being silly, laughing and if that means they are ‘goofing off’ and not looking at the camera, well then that’s what you capture.

Thank you to all my clients who find the same joy in images like theses and allow me to capture them this way!
