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!
This age is so precious. They are starting to find their personalities and experimenting with expressions and reactions. They can’t run away from you yet (or at least most of them) and are happy to sit for some photos.
Jaxon arrived into this world several weeks early and just over 4lbs, but you wouldn’t know it by how fast he has grown!
It is so much fun to spend some time to get to know each of these little ones. Learn what makes them warm and fuzzy inside and capture it!
I really love when I see an email come in from a past client. It often comes with news that they are expecting a new addition to the family! It’s so exciting for me to see them grow, meet the newest member and capture it all for them!
This is baby Matej. He was not totally interested in having family photos captured, but I guess we could say that is life with newborns and toddlers! They do what they want, when they want and we just go with it 🙂 That said, after a little patience, cuddles and love from mommy, we were able to capture some great images of this awesome family.
I hope to see them all back again as the kids grow!
Tomorrow this young man turns one!!! It is so amazing to see how much these little humans change in 1 year and I’m so honoured to have them come back to see me to capture these amazing stages in life.
Most people contact asking about a cake smash. I totally get that they are fun and cute, but not all babies love them. This is why I offer these sessions as a combination of portraits, cake smash and the always popular bubble bath! For the babies who get really messy in cake, we need this in the end, but for the babies who really don’t love the cake, they all love going in the splash and play in the water.
There is something so special about watching babies play and discover. Watching their love of life and exploration come out! This little guy enjoyed every minute of our time together… even when he was a little tired and could have used a nap, he smiled through a face covered in icing. His cake was made with love by his mommy too!
I hope to see more of the babies of 2016 coming back to capture their 1st year! Brix was one of the first last January xoxo
Check out his newborn/1 year comparison image in the same prop!
I hope all of you enjoyed some family time over the holidays and were able to get outside and play! We have had colder weather than usual and it has me excited that we will be able to capture some outdoor ‘winter’ sessions here in BC! Normally you’d have to head to the mountain for these, but so far we are able to capture these beautiful winter scenes right here in the Lower Mainland.
This is for all the families who had great intentions of getting updated family photos done before the holidays, but just were unable to fit them in… why not do it now!!
It was so much fun to meet up with this family on Boxing day. It was totally last minute and just as we watched the flakes starting to fall, we booked it in. This was a mini session where we captured a few posed family and individual photos, but then just went and had fun for the rest of the time. The kids were sledding and we had a little snowball fight. It was perfect!
If you are interested in a session like this, a mini would be 20-30 minutes and provide 12 images to choose from at $300 or a full session is 30 images for $500 and we would have more time to go for a walk and look at different backdrops/things to do!
This week although cold, the early evening sunsets are simply stunning! Ahhhh the lighting, snow and crispness in the air would be so beautiful.
