I almost never post images on a Sunday anymore, it’s our family day. But….I am a little bit in love with this couple! They are so adorable that I had to have a little look at their photos this morning. That led to a bit of editing and that led to me having to post “just a few”. Just a few turned into 11 images. Wow, I really don’t know when to stop!
My, my how time flies! The older you get, the quicker it goes by. I sometimes wish pushing the pause button was an option. Just another great reason to take pictures of your babies often. I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this family quite a few times, beginning with their first pregnancy. Now they have welcomed baby number two and she is just as perfect and adorable as her older brother.
I heart this image. What a beautiful family!
Aedan is a fantastic big brother and he is very gentle with his sister. Thanks Aedan!
After about a month and a half of trying to schedule a session I finally got to meet this little perfect child last week. She is gorgeous! Don’t you just want to squish her?!
Her handsome big brother came along too and he stole my heart again! You’re remember him from the maternity session here.
We had a beautiful Saturday without rain and got to have some time in the park too. Yay!
Great to see you all again!
My youngest turned five last week. FIVE! I know it’s been said a billion times but they really do grow up too quickly. I am longing for another little one to hold but I’m enjoying every second with the two beautiful boys I have. They are so full of life, their energy constantly amazes me and their smiles still make my heart sing. Here are some (okay a ton) of photos from our quick little session. Note the new bubble logos on the corners. More about this soon~
I think this images will be turning into a canvas! You’ll notice I left the scratch on his forehead when I’ll often photo shop things like this out. I also let him wear his very worn and dirty spider-man runners. He even chose the shirt! Why, you might ask? Don’t you want a perfect picture with everything just right? Well, to me, this is perfection! This is my Jack. The boy who always has some sort of bump on his forehead, who loves his spider-man shoes, and who’s smile is so big and contagious I melt just seeing it. He’s inspired me and I’m very excited to talk more about that . For now, enjoy the photos!
He gets his eyes from his oma and daddy.
He gets his sass from me!
My oldest wanted to model too. He does it the only way he know how. Tough!
The battle begins!
The boys know that when their birthdays come around they get a photo session and of course a treat. If they behave during the session, they get to get high on sugar after.
More sass here.
These pictures show them as they truly are! Full of energy and a little crazy. Ummm… remind you of anyone?
Andy is 6 and Jack is five, as you can plainly see.
This shot make me howl!
And now, back the inspiration I was writing about earlier. For a while now I’ve had a million ideas floating around in my head and I’ve been saving them for just the right time. I wanted to make sure I didn’t dedicate too much time to my work and neglect my most important job as mommy. Well, the youngest will start Kindergarten on Monday (not full time as most will this year, thankfully) and they are needing my constant attention less and less. This gives me a little more time and with that time I’m very excited to introduce Perfect Moments Kids. A division of Perfect Moments Photography specifically designed to capture your precious children. The main concept is to capture them, who they truly are; the child who loves his blanket, who laughs with a lopsided grin, who wears mismatched socks, who sometimes looks as though she’s contemplating world peace, who loves to jump and run, who adores butterflies or the little boy who wants to be a fireman. By letting Jack be Jack he inspired me to remember what I love most about photographing kids, capturing kids being kids. None of this overly posy stuff. Just me, them and my camera on a play date.
This concept will be fully launched by the end of November so stay tuned for the details. There will be free sessions up for grabs to!
What a great day Ashley and Scott had back in August. I’m just putting up the final post now due to my “grueling” vacation schedule;) Such a tough life I’ve had.
The whole event took place at Pacific Country Stable and I can’t say enough great things about this location.
Scott and Ashley were pretty darn fabulous themselves too! Here is some more horseplay.
Fabulous reception details!
And the speeches, don’t even get me started on the speeches! They were amazing too.
Congratulations luv birds!
I am thrilled to announce that my good friend Angela welcomed another beautiful daughter earlier this week. I visited them in the hospital yesterday and had to snap a few photos. There will be an actual newborn session coming soon too.
I was excited to use the purple walls in the room she had. Worked great for a new baby girl!
Finally, here is the last post for Jasmine and Jordan. I’ve really enjoyed editing these images! I often joke with clients that “the pictures tell me what to do”. As many people are aware, a photographer’s job doesn’t end when he/she stops clicking the shutter. I spend countless hours behind the computer screen editing the images and I really, really enjoy this part of my job too. This is when the photos start talking to me (I’m not crazy, I promise). When I load them into Lightroom ( a must have tool for all photographers!) the images start the dialogue. Sometimes they tell me a little contrast, a little warming, maybe some vignetting. Sometimes they tell me more, wanting to be black & white, sepia, punchy or muted. Last post, vintage was the request. This post, for Jasmine who chose a rocking, vibrant bouquet and a kick-butt location, it definitely screams punchy and vibrant. The ceremony photos first!
I love it when the minister uses the ring as a prop! Makes a good shot. This was a special minister too, the groom’s father!
The attendance all made some noise during the kiss. Very cute!
First stop was Heritage Park in Mission.
These guys could fly!
One of my favorite places, Whonnock Lake.
This couple really made me smile.
Congratulations to a sweet and wonderful couple! We were blessed to share this day with you.
It was another hot, hot weekend and another unique and lovely wedding. Ashley and Scott chose a divine location for their wedding. Pacific Country Stables has a perfect backdrop for an outdoor wedding ceremony, not to mention a gorgeous ballroom (that will be shown in future posts, I promise). Outdoor ceremonies are by far my favorite and I encourage anyone planning a wedding to seriously consider it. I know that in BC we are a little afraid of the rain but many locations, including Pacific Country Stables, have beautiful indoor locations that can be used in the event the weather doesn’t cooperate. Thanks Ashley for choosing such a great venue:)
On with the show! Ashley choose to incorporate a vintage theme into her wedding and I truly loved it so continued the feel into the photographs.
Adore the bird cage vail.
Her ring was exquisite!
Ashley is gorgeous and she pulled off the 1940s vintage look perfectly.
As soon as I walked into the location the girls were getting ready at, I knew I was going to use the french doors.
One of my associates, Shayna, captured the boys. I’m a little jealous I don’t get the opportunity to take shots like these but she did a great job!
Here is the amazing ceremony site.
I can see it! Scott is smitten.
It’s a year full of animals for Perfect Moments. We’ve done a few cows and at this wedding we were lucky enough to have a horse to photograph too.
Aren’t they adorable & perfect!? More photos to follow in a few weeks.
