I'm so excited to invite you all to follow my passion and enjoy the many different images that I will be posting here!
What can I say about doing something you really LOVE to do! Photography has always been a passion of mine, something I have always felt was a part of me. I can remember back to when I was immersed in the equestrian showjumping world... I would remember watching the photographers there thinking how much fun it would be to do that for a living, but it was more then that. I would sit and watch them, follow their lens to see what they were shooting. I can clearly remember one show that I was working at, the photographer pointed their long lens my way and I could picture what he was seeing through the lens. As I held the horse I pictured the photo cropped in, so I pressed in closer to the horse, my hand was holding his nose and glanced up towards his eyes. I thought what a great picture that would be of a quiet moment with my horse (of course I'm guessing most people dont picture this of themselves!) I was so excited to see the proof images in the coming days to see if he too saw what I was feeling, and it was there!!! I was so excited! That kept me going on this path and I soon started to find my own eye for what came so naturally to me.
Some people photograph landscapes, wild flowers or nature... some photograph commercial material, architecture or cars. For me my passion is capturing people and the things around us we love. I feel that I have a unique ability to see into people, see them for who they are and capture that on an image. I dont always wait for what someone else may think is the perfect shot, but I snap when I think it's perfect for you. I want my images to reflect you - not create you!
I really hope I get the opportunity to meet everyone who visits my site or blog and have the chance to capture your family!
Follow along this exciting journey with me as I strive to continue to show how positive this world can be!
In the midst of all of the family sessions getting ready for the holidays – there are still little babies being born YAY!!!
I was so happy to meet little Austin. He was such a little love to work with Some babies are a little more particular with letting me pose.. he this little guy did not want me messing around with his hands! That said I think we got some really fun images of him and his family!
My guess is young little Koston was born loving music! His Daddy is in a band and plays guitar, so it was only fitting that he be photographed with one!
His big sister Fallon was also totally awesome and listened to everything I asked of her. What an awesome big sister!! It is always so important for me to try to get a great sibling shot – but it doesn’t always happen. This time we got several that were great so I hope you all agree
I have never photographed a baby on a guitar before and loved the challenge!
It’s that time of year already!! From the outdoor photos to the indoor we go! The rain is falling and it’s time to start thinking about gifting already.
This year there are a few little set ups that can be used if you want to have a holiday theme, or you can simply use the white backdrop or the window bench for your photos.
This is geared towards the kids, but families are welcome up to 6 people. Sorry we’ll have to leave the pets at home for the indoor sessions
Instead of including prints in this special I’ve provided the options available for digital files. That said I am happy to provide printing information prior to the session, or here in the studio.
What to wear???!!! Personally I love the kids in the PJ’s being cozy for the winter – but of course I know most people like to get them dressed up in their finest. It’s up to you!
** Bonus ** Do you like the cream and red striped sweater onzie that Sky was wearing? It’s available for anyone who can fit a 6-12 month size. Sky is very petite at 14 months, but was still very big on her, so I’d think it would fit up to 18 months on some.
These sessions are available to anyone. If you have a newborn you’re welcome to come, but know that it will be limited to 20 minutes – so we’ll see what we get in that time – no posing promises.
I know these will fill up fast, so email ASAP to secure your time! jen(at)jlsphotography.ca
Sessions will be held in studio only. Images will be available via digital download – additional cost for a DVD copy.
It was just over a year ago that I met little Kiara and look how much she has grown!
It’s always so amazing to see the babies that I’ve photographed as they get older – it really is one of the best part of what I do! I am able to watch and capture the innocence of these little people – find what makes them smile and freeze that in time for their families to look back upon for years to come!
I was so happy that the timing and weather worked out for this family to come and meet me one afternoon. I think we all had a great time, even the dogs!
It wasn’t that long ago that I had the pleasure of meeting this family at their home in Richmond. Their youngest little lady had just turned 100 days!!
This time we met up in Vancouver on a foggy morning at Jericho Beach. I was the perfect fall day!
Both grandmothers came along for the session as well. I know they spend a lot of time with these little ladies and needed a few pictures with them all together – but more importantly everyone in your family should be captured together!! I love when extended family members come to sessions!
Here are a few of what was captured that morning. The girls seemed to decided when one smiled the other didn’t but it was so fun!
