Beautiful One

This was a beautiful one, a beautiful first birthday! They look great all dressed up.  What a way to celebrate their daughter’s milestone.  It doesn’t matter if you dress up or come casual.  The most important thing is to relax and have fun.  If you aren’t able to do that all gussied up, then consider wearing casual clothes to your session.  Your comfort really translates into the quality of images I am able to capture.  So whether you decide to be formal or casual, I will do my best to ensure you, too, have a beautiful one!

Celebrate One with Me

First birthdays are a big deal.  No matter how many kids you already have, each first birthday is special.  That’s why I love it when a family celebrates together and invites me to come along.  Smiles and joy were in order the whole time as these guys knew how to have fun.  There was lots of time to run and be goofy, too.  I enjoyed working with this family a few years back when they just had two kiddos. The addition of a little girl was sure a welcomed one! Happy Birthday little lady!

Living on the Edge

I always keep an eye out for new locations. But, when you’ve been a photographer as long as I have, new local places are hard to find. So when I happened upon this place I was quite ecstatic. What a view!  There was a downside to it though…literally. A cliff into a rock pit to be exact. What do you do with a location that comes with a slight degree of danger? Call your friends of course! I had been chatting with this lovely family for a while about updating their family photos but schedules hadn’t aligned. Thankfully, we found a date that worked between business, work and soccer schedules and voila, one family photo session on a cliff! Oh, we had a little help from the Man Upstairs with the weather too. Whoa, sunset amazingness! I love it when a plan comes together 😉

Fun in the Forest

What better way is there to celebrate turning one than having fun in the forest?  River dressed for the part in his plaid.  He had a great time discovering trees, ferns, and moss.  So many textures to feel and stuff to learn.  However, not everything was to his liking as modeling can be a hard job!  It is exhausting to be charming all the time especially when you’d rather explore.  Next time he’s just going to bring Mom and his dogs.  There is still so much fun in the forest to discover.

Gold Star to Dad

I appreciate it when I hear from a dad. And, I admit, it doesn’t happen that often. Moms are the typical “photo session booker”. So, when the roles switch I can’t help but give a gold star to dad. This dad cared a lot about capturing the perfect photos of his growing family. We had some really great conversations leading up to the session. Planning the perfect time, location, and wardrobe can be challenging. We’re always here to help with plenty of ideas to get you ready though. We even offer maternity dresses! A pale pink dress worked perfectly with the sunset lighting.  As you can see, Dad deserved his gold star.  He was so proud of his beautiful wife and growing family.

Winter Sunsets

The winter sun was out in full force for this family photo session. So were the smiles and the sweetness. It was all I could ask for to capture some magical family memories. All the better when it’s a lovely lady I’ve know since high school. She is truly beautiful inside and out and photographing her and her family is such a pleasure. As a mom I know how fleeting these moments with our little ones can be. Time goes so quickly and I’m always reminiscing over all photographs. I’m so grateful to share a little in these ones.

Baby Boss – Abbotsford Newborn Photographer

The babies are in charge. We all know that. These tiny, perfect little creatures come into our lives and the next thing you know, there’s a new boss in town! The same thing happens in my studio. I may think I’m in change and have all my plans figured out but, in the end, I know these little people are making the rules. This miniature boss was a pretty nice little lady to have in charge.  She approved of all my wardrobe choices and then dozed off for most of the session. Nice working with you beautiful girl!  Welcome to the world:)

One Year Old Princess Session

Every moment in my new studio feels like such a blessing. I’m so grateful that I am able to continue working at my passion and now I get to do it in a space that inspires me daily. Also, because of the additional space, I’m able to start acquiring even more props. This means I can now offer fully decorated cake smashes. I did my first one last week for this little doll. I couldn’t have been more excited when her momma requested the princess theme and liked my pink and gold colour scheme. We started off with some classic photos and then spent a little time in our fairy tale land. I could not have asked for a better princess to photograph. She is a truly delightful little girl. Happy first birthday little lady!

6 Day Old Bentley

This little guy made his entrance into the world a little early. I’m sure that made his momma happy. He was so tiny and perfect and even smiled for me a few times, too. We did a little rock-a-by and ahh, how I adore those baby snuggles so much!

Newborn Baby Boy

I’m really enjoying my new studio and the babies that come to play. This little man was wide awake most of his session and gave us the most adorable expressions. Such a little ham! He’s going to love these photos when he’s a little older and can appreciate the personality he brought to his first photo session.
