Smoke or Fog…I’m going with Fog!

Anyone who’s enjoyed summer in BC these last few years will tell you that we’ve been plagued by horrible forest fire seasons. I am hopeful that eventually, we will see an end to this trend. For now, I will continue to work in it and pretend it’s fog because, really, it can be beautiful (even if it does cause dry throats)! These people didn’t seem to mind much and agreed that the smoke did lend a rather moody feel to the photos.  And, as always, they were well dressed and beautiful!  Did you know I adore the mountains?  I love looking at them, climbing them, and especially using them as the backdrop for amazing family photos.  When Melanie (the pretty momma) asked if I knew any good places that showcased them, this spot came to mind immediately. It’s popular in the Fraser Valley photographer’s world but I hadn’t ventured out to visit it yet. It was worth the drive because even shrouded with “fog”,  they too, looked fantastic! Have I mentioned I love those mountains?!

Outdoor Newborn Photography is the BEST!

Every once in a while, newborn photography is pure magic. I feel like the nymphs and fairies watched over  this handsome boy. I’m pretty sure baby heard one approach but thankfully his trusty dog held them at bay until his parents entered the frame. Among the roots of the trees is normally the hobbits domain but only cuteness was found this day. It was easy to get lost in the spell of the woods during this enchanted morning.

Sunrise on the Pond

Anyone willing to meet at 6:45 a.m. for a summer session earns a gold star in my book. And this family sure did earn it.  We had a great time walking through a foggy (& smokey) park. It was well worth the effort to get this stunningly golden light.  I hope they agree.  Dad brought this amazing “daddy energy” which made his littlest girl giggle as he tossed her through the air.  The other two had no need of “daddy energy” since they brought their own special kind.  What fun they had fun running around and mothering their little sister. Special props to the pretty momma who brought this all together too!

Milestones

As a photographer I get to see little windows into other people’s worlds. It’s a gift I don’t take lightly.  I saw the joy these parents share with their little man and it’s beautiful. He’s already hitting milestones with the passage of time, time that I’m sure is passing too quickly for his parents.  The last photo has him waving goodbye and it melts the heart. Blink and you will see that wave again as he goes off to college.

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…

Following My Heart with Outdoor Newborn Photography

I’m going to tell you a secret. I never intended on being a newborn photographer.  Weddings, yes.  Families,  for sure.  But newborn photographer…not so much. Well fast forward 12 plus years and here I am. Photographing newborns and loving it. And, what I love the most is outdoor newborn photography. It’s when I’m in my element. Probably because I’m a nature girl. I adore the beauty our amazing province offers and when you add a sweet little newborn into an outdoor setting, I get really excited.  I had so much fun with this family. Big brother and little brother were both just awesome the whole session. And nature was pretty perfect, too 😉 Thanks for visiting my page!

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!
