** Limited Time Offer ** | Capturing your family at play | Langley Videographer

As a photographer, my job is to capture that look, the smile, the silliness in your family that you know and love. I want you to be able to look at an image and feel the excitement, pride and joy. This is why I’ve loved starting a new adventure into Video as well! Being able to capture your family at play, being silly, laughing and spending a fun afternoon together is just as thrilling as getting ‘the shot’ that you really love. I really feel that every family needs to do this at least once – no matter your age or your kids!

Having three young kids I know how silly they can be, how their laughs can bring so much joy and wash away the stresses of everyday life.  Wouldn’t you love to be able to play that back over and over again!  I want to be able to provide families with something that will give them those giggles forever.  Over the past year I’ve been capturing video of our family.  I have to say that one of my kids favourite things to do is sit down and watch those videos over and over again.  Even they appreciate how special it is to have these keepsakes!

As this is something I’d like to do more of, I really would love to have more of a portfolio of other families.  These videos can be set up to capture everyone just at home playing or out somewhere doing something you love to do as a family.  A walk at the beach or the park… you name it.  You could even invite extended family – grandparents or anyone else you’d like to have captured in the video together with you!

Here is what you’ll get:

Think about how fun this session would be to have also had video of it!!

If you have really little ones, this session would be perfect to do at home!  They are more comfortable there, I can capture all of their favourite things to do, read, play with…. capture the baby napping, daddy playing and cuddles with mom.  Invite me over at breaky time or in the middle of the day to just play.

Here is a sample of one of the afternoon playtimes I captured of our family!

Sweet 16 Portraits | Surrey Portrait Photographer

I had the pleasure of meeting this awesome family this past winter when they revealed the gender of their fourth addition… baby Simeon, but tonight had a very different feel!

I met up with the very beautiful young Synjah who is turning 16 in a few short weeks to celebrate this new stage in her life.    I know that a good majority of images and families you see on the blog are of babies and little toddlers, but I can’t say it enough – it doesn’t matter how old you are….GET OUT THERE AND TAKE MORE PICTURES!!

We met hoping to catch a beautiful spring evening sun just at dusk.  It was there, just hidden behind the clouds!  As we walked around and found little spots to capture, I got to see more and more of this young lady’s natural beauty just shine.

She should be very proud of the person she is growing into – a beautiful young soul.  I can only imagine what her parents are thinking as they look at these images.  Their first born already turning 16…amazing!

At the very end of the session the sun was just about to set and it broke through the clouds.  We finished with a few of her ballet jumps into the sunset.

The warmth of the sun | Giving back

There is nothing better then the warmth of the sun on your face and the smell of fresh spring blossoms in the air.

Sometimes we need to stop and appreciate all those little things that make each day special.  I know that this family is doing just that.

I was honoured to take a little time out of my day to go and share a few moments with this awesome family.  It was less then a year ago that Sylver was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.  She is a daughter, mother, sister and auntie who is very much loved by everyone.  I can’t imagine how hard it must be to have to visit her at the hospice, but at the same time grateful that there are still days like yesterday to enjoy.  Everyone together, the warm sun and a few good laughs.

My heart is with you all xoxox

Jack | 8 Days New | Langley Newborn Photographer

Sigh…. what an awesome session we had!

I really love that so many of the families that come to see me have more then one little human on their hips.    It brings a new challenge each time as of course every child is different.

With only 17 months separating these two babies I wasn’t sure what we would get… but we were going to try!  We planned the session to have ‘big sister’ there for the first hour and then go home.  So the pressure was on to get something in that time.  WE GOT IT!  Family photos, sibling photos.. ohhh it was great:) Then we finished the session off with just baby Jack, such a nice way to end the morning!

Welcome to the world Jack!

Miracle babies | Richmond Newborn Photographer

When you first find out your are pregnant there is a flood of emotions and then a MILLION questions run through your mind.

You think about all the what if’s, you try to plan your ‘birth plan’ knowing full well that there is no real plan, it’s up to those little humans inside.

Then you find out your have twins!  SO EXCITING!  Most twins will carry to about 34-37 weeks and would be considered close to full term in that range.  That wasn’t in the cards for these two.

They arrived for no known reason at only 26 weeks.  Kayden and Karen weighing both 2.4 and 2.5 lbs.  After Karen spending 89 days in the NICU she was able to come home… her brother sent a few more and was finally discharged at 101 days!

I was so excited to come and meet them.  Although they were born on December 1, 2013 and technically almost 4 months old, they were still one day shy of their actual due date!!

Feel free to leave a message in support to all the parents who have to spend their babies first few days, weeks and months in the hospital before they can come home. I can’t imagine going home without them.
