Let’s press the pause button on summer, shall we?!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…or at least one of them! I adore summer. Sunshine is like a magic pill that boosts my happiness. We have a small  problem in this great province of ours though – it usually only lasts about 3 months and I’d like it for about six.  Well, at least I am enjoying it while I can. I’ve had so many warm and golden summer photo sessions. Here is one I did a few weeks back with a bunch of wonderful subjects.  I have the pleasure of calling these people friends.  One family in this group “saw the light” and moved back to British Columbia  after a few years in Alberta.  And what’s a great way to celebrate?  A family photo session of course. Perhaps the other family will “see the light” one day and move back to our amazing province, too 😉  Although, does Alberta get more summer than us?? I’ll have to look into that…

Summer Sunsets

I can’t get enough of this sunny weather. Some people might be craving rain but not me. I want to soak up these rays. That’s why I offered a few smaller photo sessions to capture this amazing light on weekday evenings. I find myself wishing for subjects to capture when I see a pretty location with glorious light. This family was game to run through a pretty field during sunset. I enjoyed chasing the boys back and forth across the grass. It reminded me of days gone by with my two boys…cue the nostalgia! I’ll never get tired of capturing childhood and the fun that goes along with it.

Lavender Fields Full of Laughter

A last minute text about kids, a sunset, and a lavender field had me a little more excited than an almost forty year old woman should be. I might have looked more like a school girl doing a happy dance. And, can you blame me? If you are into photography as much as I am, you’ll understand. These kids are seriously fun, too. They are well trained experts in the field of modeling for my camera and as usual, their delightful personalities win my heart. Good looking, polite and kind.  A winning combo.   Thanks for visiting my page! I am an Abbotsford maternity, newborn and family photographer based in BC, Canada.

Free Range Kids

I have a lot of fun with my job. A lot. There are so many creative aspects that I love but the best part is the magic the children bring. You never know what kind of energy will accompany the little ones and that makes each shoot very unique. Sometimes they are quiet and shy, sometimes outgoing and bouncy but every time, I love it. This group of kiddos each has a different personality and wow, did it ever make it exciting. They are so adorable and full of life. I really love that we could capture each kid just being themselves. Oh, and the parents and grandparents were a riot, too!

Chubby Baby Cuddles at White Rock

Is there anything better than a chubby baby? That is what I call a rhetorical question! All this chubby goodness was seriously making my heart melt. One year old Sophia had me wishing for another baby of my own. Since that isn’t likely to happen, I took all the cuddles I could in-between takes. Sophia’s parents were smart enough to suggest a summery session at the beach in White Rock. With the purple wild flowers close by, we got all the magic I could hope for as a photographer. Happy Birthday beautiful girl!

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 trees 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.

Abbotsford Family Photographer – The “H” Family

I love this truly kind and sweet family!  We enjoyed a pretty fall evening at the Blue Heron Reserve in Chilliwack. Beautiful family + beautiful sunshine = Happy Photographer.  No more words needed 🙂

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 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 which required some editing to remove a few red marks.  Thank goodness for Photoshop!  I loved every minute of this trip but this session was a highlight.  Enjoy the photos!

Four Steps to Choosing Your Photo Session Wardrobe

I get asked all the time by clients about wardrobe and I often send them to Pintrest for ideas. It is loaded with inspiration but sometimes we all need a super simple way to plan. When doing my own family sessions I like to keep things really easy because I’m surrounded by boys who aren’t big fans of dressing up.  With this in mind, I made a chart with four steps to choosing your photo session wardrobe. This makes it easy to pick a wardrobe for your family photo session that works with your own personal style.  It helps to start by 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.
