The Falk Family and Josh’s Grad – Abbotsford Family Photographer

If clients need a hand deciding on a location for their photo sessions, I always love to give them a few ideas. It seems like McDonald park is everyone’s favorite lately and I can definitely see why! You can’t help but appreciate the big beautiful trees that tower above the lovely riverside setting. It’s the perfect setting for memorable, beautiful photos. You’ll never hear any complaints from me; I love this place too!

I met up with this awesome family to combine a grad session and family session one warm June night. Mom worked hard to pick out just the right outfits for her family and the colours blended fabulously with the natural background. We started with the classic family photos and then took some time to focus on the new graduate and his incredibly cool choice of props, a classic car.

Angela and Bryan – Abbotsford Water Engagement Session

So what do you do if your beautiful fiancee wants to jump in a lake for her engagement session but it’s November and therefore too cold outside? Well, if you’re Bryan, you schedule a second surprise engagement session for a few months later when the weather is nice and hot! What a guy! He certainly did surprise Angela and it was awesome to see her reaction. We had to arrange it last minute due to busy schedules, but the weather that day and the timing of the session worked out perfectly anyway.  They were both willing subjects and didn’t hesitate to hop right into the lukewarm waters at fantastic Cultus Lake.  Angela may look like she was putting up a fight, but I can tell you otherwise! She and her man were having the time of their lives playing together and having fun.

These two are seriously adorable, too. It’s incredibly evident that they are enamored with each other and I’m so happy they’ve found their perfect soul mate in one another.  Their much anticipated wedding is happening in August and I just can’t wait to be a part of it!

The Jenkins Family – Abbotsford Family Photographer

Oh, the fun I had at this Saturday afternoon session in beautiful McDonald Park in Abbotsford. I’ve known these lovely people since I was first blessed to be a part of their wedding a few years back. I’ve really enjoyed watching them grow from a happy couple into a wonderful little family and I was honored to do some family photos for them.

We met just after the kids had their early dinner so we could sneak the session in before they got too tired to enjoy it fully. At first their beautiful brown-eyed daughter was still a tiny bit sleepy from her unexpected car ride nap, but she warmed up with smiles and giggles pretty quickly.  I followed the little sweethearts all over the park, hence the myriad of different settings in the photos. The kids adored throwing sticks in the water. It was by far their favorite part of our time together, so we enjoyed the shoreline together for a while. Their little man has no fear so we had to keep an eye on him so he didn’t end up soaked and covered in mud.  Needless to say, they were tuckered out and ready for bed by the time we finished.

As a photographer, these types of lifestyle shoots make my heart sing because I get to enjoy precious moments and creatively capture life. I Love my job!
