Abbotsford Children’s Photographer – The Schmidt Kids

This little creek has become a hot spot for my clients. I find I fall in and out of love with different areas and right now (just like many clients), I’m quite in love with this place. The light shining through the tall tress is usually quite epic. Not to mention, who doesn’t like splashing around in the cold, clear water?! This little boy sure enjoyed it. His two older sisters have always been quite calm and now the family is enjoying the antics of a happy little boy. I can sure relate! It was an extremely fun session, as my time with them always is.

Abbotsford Family Photographer – The Koss Family 2017

I get to hang out with this crew each year around this time.  Every year (every year!) their photos are some of my favourites. I might mention that we also get ridiculously lucky with the weather. Every year!!   Maybe next year I’ll have as many clients as possible book right before and after their session to guarantee the fantastic weather;)   Thanks for being so kind, fun and beautiful Koss family!  Loved every minute hanging out with you guys.

The “B” Family – Sunset Family Photo Session.

My friend Heidi contacted me a few months ago and asked what I’d think of taking a trip to Calgary to do her family’s photos. Of course, I jumped on the opportunity! I had one request, that we do a sunset family photo session. I love the Alberta landscape and I was really excited to capture it in all its glory at the golden hour.  These adorable girls were pretty amazing for the session and braved the mosquitoes which I have now termed “little fairies”.  It seemed a fitting way to add to the ethereal look of the park we visited. Sadly, the little fairies did get us a few times and I’ve edited out a few red marks.  Thank-goodness for Photoshop!  I loved every minute of this trip and this session was a highlight.  Enjoy the photos!

Four Steps to Choosing Your Photo Session Wardrobe

I get questions all the time from clients about wardrobe and I often send them to Pintrest to get ideas. Pintrest is loaded with so many great ideas but this isn’t always the way I approach my own family sessions. I like to keep things really simple. I’m surrounded by boys and, they really don’t love photo sessions let alone dressing up.  With this in mind I made a chart. Four steps to choosing your photo session wardrobe. This makes it easy to pick a wardrobe for your family photo session and make it work with your own personal style.  It also helps to start with picking just two or three main colours and working with a variety of tones.  You’ll see this sample wardrobe is blue, purples and beige and there is a variety of each but in different tones so it’s not too matchy. I hope this helps you design your own wardrobe the next time you have a family photo session.

Abbotsford Family Photographer – Remax Day

I love being a family photographer! One of my favourite things to do is capture families interacting with each other. It never gets old because each family is unique. So, when Shelley Gossett of Remax contacted me to do a morning of family photos for her clients I jumped on the idea. We had done this a couple years ago and it was a great success. The weather held out for us again and there were so many smiling faces to capture.  I love the energy of working with so many families in a short amount of time.  We utilized Fort Langley and as always, it was the perfect spot.  The kids enjoyed the train and train tracks and I enjoyed the versatility.

Fall Mini Sessions – Abbotsford Family Photographer

What do you do on a snowed in day in February? Relive November’s Fall mini sessions. We had the most wonderful day for fall photos! There is always a risk when you plan 13 photo sessions in one day and bank on the weather cooperating. It is my biggest challenge as a photographer; planning around our unpredictable British Columbia weather. I’ve joked for years that if I only had control of the weather my job would be perfect. Thankfully, on this day, God smiled down on us and we only had a couple sprinkles here and there. Each group was terrific and I thoroughly enjoyed every mini session we had. Can’t wait to do it again this year!

Abbotsford Family Photographer – The “S” Family 2016

As I sit at my desk, watching the snow fall, I had the sudden urge to blog some colourful photos from fall. It’s such a vibrant time of year and I miss it already.  Not that I’m sad about the snow, it’s a nice change and I’m hoping this pretty white stuff hangs on for some photos tomorrow!  For now though,  I’m basking in the light of these images and remembering a warm autumn evening.   I’ve been editing like a mad woman for the last couple months (busy season!) and thought it was high time I caught up on a little blogging too.   I’ve never photographed this family before  and I really enjoyed chatting with them and watching their smiles and connections with each other.  They were celebrating the arrival of their handsome son just a few months before.  As you can see he’s a blessed little boy with lots of love from his parents and big sister. Enjoy the flashback to fall.

Abbotsford Family Photographer – The N Family

It’s been so much fun to watch my friends become parents to this handsome little man. These past four years have flown by but it’s been a joy to see them grow together. Such a sweet family.  Adore them!    This session almost didn’t happen due to the rain and we changed locations about three times.  In the end I’m so glad we found this little forest and the weather turned out prettier than expected.  The railroad tracks where a last minute idea that suited them so well too. It’s such a joy to be a family photographer and work with the people I love. I’ve always said I’d do this job for free if I inherited millions because I’d want to capture my friends regardless.

Abbotsford Family Photographer – The “P” Family

My favorite spot, again! And a favorite family too:)    These gorgeous kids are growing fast and, of course, they were amazing subjects as usual. We enjoyed many candies throughout their photography session which is always helpful. Their little boy was my new best friend and he followed me around asking so sweetly for more. I couldn’t resist.  Adorable.  I adore watching these munchkins run and laugh and would do whatever they wanted in the hour or two we have together.  As always,  momma did a fantastic job choosing wardrobe.  They look perfect,  don’t you think?! Their family photo session went off without a hitch and I’m always grateful that I get to be a small part of their world!
