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.

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 of years ago with huge 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 while 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. 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.
