As you scroll through the hundreds of images on this site, I hope you'll start to see one thing that stands out... that one thing is the common bond that we all have in expressing the love we have for those closest to us!
It really doesn't matter what it is I am photographing, they all evoke the same feeling inside of me. One of the greatest challenges for me is the necessity to figure out who you are, what makes you tick and then how to pull that from you in an image. I want you to feel something when you look at the images I capture. Of course if I am photographing your newborn, I want the image to instantly make you remember holding that tiny little baby, remember what it felt like to cuddle up in your arms, or that they fit in the palm of your hand.
If I am outside capturing your family - I don't want you to just see everyone looking at the camera, I want you to remember how much fun we had, the laughter and silly things we did... which resulted in everyone genuinely looking happy and right at me! I want the images of your kids to be the faces you remember looking back at you each day - their silly little expressions and reflection of who they really are.
Perhaps it's your wedding day!!! One of the most important days that people have photographed and all I want is for you to forget that I'm even there. I want you to enjoy each other and all the special people you've envied to be around you on the day. I will help direct you to an idea I have, but then just let you be you... laugh, talk and love every moment together. The images should reflect your day - not just the perfect pose.
This isn't just a job for me... this is who I am. I love connecting with people and envisioning what that looks like in a lasting memory through a camera, it truly is an extension of who I am.
One thing you're guaranteed during our session is that you're going to see me laugh and enjoy every minute. I am excited for the opportunity to meet you and your family and hope to chat soon!
It was really no surprise to me how well this session went… it wasn’t that long ago that I met Clara’s big sister Roslind. She was the happiest little baby ever! This family has so much joy and happiness to share… I just loved every minute with them. Two very lucky little girls to have each other and such awesome parents!
Check out the fun we had in the studio. Reading a book as we did with big sister’s session and of course some giggles and snuggles to top it off!
Yesterday I had the absolute honour to be a part of something so special and intimate for two totally deserving friends. It was just 4 of us and a few patrons at the restaurant to witness a lifetime of love and happiness embracing into marriage and opening a new chapter.
7 Years ago Linda would visit the Mercedes dealership to have her vehicle serviced… it was there that she first met Skylar. She had a beautiful baby boy at the time and likely had no idea that 7 years later she would be marrying this man! They went on their first dinner date to Chambar in Vancouver. A beautiful, quaint little restaurant downtown. Yesterday afternoon we met there again to marry them and officially call them Husband and Wife! That morning they had asked a friend to give them a ride into town, but what arrived was of nothing other than a Mercedes and driver to send them off in style. Linda feels it was by chance, but clearly it was fate once again showing them that this is truly meant to be. They arrived to Chamber around 3:00pm yesterday afternoon. Ryan, the officiant, and I joined them inside. We set aside a small area of the back of the restaurant; where while other patrons were dining and the restaurant was busy setting up for the evening dinners service Linda and Skylar where sharing rings and saying their I do’s! It felt as if we were the only people there, it really was so special. At the moment they were married there were soft whispers of congratulations from the staff passing by and others in the restaurant. It was perfect. I was a witness for them as well as the restaurant hostess we had just met.
To top off this amazing surprise of theirs… they are also expecting a baby to join the family in a few months!!! So many blessings for them in 2018!
We went outside to capture a few more images, but it wasn’t long before we sent them back inside for dinner and to enjoy the rest of the night together.
Please join me in wishing these two an amazing life together and sending them off today on a fantastic European cruise!!
Look at this little ray of sunshine on the blog today!! I met little Siena and her family at her home to capture her newborn photos. This time they came out to play in the studio with me. Prepare to fall in love with her charm… such a little cutie!!
He’s here 🙂 Do you remember my cousin’s maternity session in the snow? It of course didn’t take long for little Dom to make his grand entrance into the world and be welcomed into a very loving family.
It was so great to snuggle with this little guy in the studio and of course watch the pride in his new parent’s eyes. He was a gem to photograph, sleeping through our session and happy to move from one prop to another.
I can assure you it will not be the last time he is captured on the blog!! I’ll be watching this little man as he grows and capturing it as hit happens.
Welcome to the family Dominic!! xo (love from your second cousin Jen!)
Oh little Emily… I’m most certain this first photo of you is that of a cheeky little grin knowing that you were not about to sleep much during our session!! But that’s ok with me, we got some really great images of those beautiful blue eyes you have!!
I had such a fun session with this family. I love that Gramma came too 🙂 Capturing the love that family has for one another, is such an honour. I hope you can see it shining through these images as much as I felt it in the room.
Enjoy these refreshing images on this cold and almost wintery spring night!!
