Snow day!!! | Surrey Family Photographer

Welcome to 2017!!!

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.

Message me today!


Here is your chance!  If you are thinking of booking in family photos or have a baby on the way… this is the only opportunity to save on your package!

Do you have those family members that are really hard to shop for?  Consider buying a family portrait session for them, or an extended family session to include everyone together!

There is nothing that brings more joy than family coming together and creating memories to share for a lifetime in images.

Katzie Elementary Holiday Market | Photo Booth

With only a few days to go… all of the amazing vendors are busy preparing to showcase their work!!  I’m excited to be a part of this group and hope to see many of you there!!

I’m also really excited to also have a photo booth for you and your family to stop in and be captured!

What you wear is totally up to you… you can dress up, dress down… wear your own pjs OR you can simply come as you are and change into the Lazy One Flapjacks that I will have in all sizes!  I love the idea of everyone being cozy and snuggled up for a holiday photo!  I know this may be harder to get Dad to do… but… let’s try!  I have sizes from 6 months through to XXL.

The backdrop will be a white backdrop which I can then digital add on the holiday lights on your selected image.  This allows me to have a few different scenes available to you that we can change depending on what you’d like.

Some of the options are:

  • Holiday lights backdrop
  • Christmas Presents Wrapped
  • Christmas Tree
  • Snowmen

All of these are easy to move in and out depending on your preference.  Once we are all set up on Friday, I will provide a few sample images!

The packages start at $85 and only a $40 deposit will be required at the session.   This enables you to capture a quick family photo and one of the kids together.  If you feel you would like more, you could choose two different backdrops or even capture some headshot individually (I know not everyone loves their school photos 😉 You will then receive an online gallery to decide on your final package option.

Consider bringing the grandparents or cousins… just remember that this is not an in studio session and we may not have much time to try and get it all just right (depending on ages).

There will be options for babies who are not yet sitting so even the little babies are welcome. Who doesn’t love a baby’s first Christmas photo!

So…. make sure you stop in to the school, support our amazing local community of entrepreneurs!!

DATE: Saturday November 26, 2016  LOCATION: Katzie Elementary 6887 194th Street Surrey BC

**Note the wood backdrop will not be available during the fair (in studio only), but the hats will be 😉 

Here is a sample of a before and after with the digital holiday lights applied. 

Come and have some fun!!!


Christmas Mini Sessions are here!!!

This post is LONG over due and I thank you all for your patience.  It has been a struggle for me to recover from a few weeks of pneumonia which is why I have held off posting this information.

That said… there’s no time to waste!

This year I was thinking about what so many families talk about when they come for photos… WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR???  SO  I thought what better than to offer an option!  I’ve teamed up with Lazy One Canada to provide EVERYONE in your family Pj’s to wear for your photos! I tested it out on my kids and their cousins and they all just loved it.  Regardless of age, I think this is a fun way to celebrate the holidays and not stress about a new outfit for everyone.  For this, I created a new space to use as well.  The Pj’s can be used in the bedroom setting and have some fun with toes under the blankets and everyone snuggled up… OR you can head out to the studio for a few more options for different set ups.

It is totally your option to choose to bring your own clothes OR use the pjs.  But we would not have time to do both options in a mini session.

This year I also have a few families who would love to try and get cousins together or extended family members.  For this you can book two back to back sessions and ensure we have time to capture some of each of the families as well as everyone together (depending on the size of the group).  Be sure to message me with your requests to see if I can accommodate.

I have several sessions already booked in, but please contact with your requested date and time and I will do my best to fit everyone in.

Happy Holidays to everyone and hope to see some of your smiling faces in the studio soon!

Classic Studio set up with Holiday Lights

Studio Holiday Scene (best for children only)

Happy Holidays, from my family to yours!

It’s so hard to plan for outdoor family photos this time of year, but when you get good weather, it’s simply stunning!

It looks like we will get another great day on Sunday (October 30th).  If anyone is interested in booking in for a quick mini session… don’t wait!

If you didn’t ‘love’ your children’s school photos… here is your chance for some awesome outdoor images.
