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.

Baby Abigail – Abbotsford Outdoor Newborn Photography

I can’t get enough of outdoor newborn photography! I love this beautiful weather we’ve been having and the opportunity to photograph newborns outside is so much fun. This beautiful little family is celebrating the birth of their second baby girl and I couldn’t be happier for them. The stylin momma was well prepared with cute outfits AND flower crowns for her daughters. How perfect! I hope to do many more outdoor sessions before the weather changes so watch for those in the future.

Baby Anna-Beth – Abbotsford Family Newborn Photographer

Welcome baby Anna-Beth! This pretty newborn girl joins her big sister and parents to complete their family of four. As I continually mention, I love watching my clients grow their families. I’ve know this happy couple for years.  It’s a true pleasure to photograph them again and again. Also, I have to mention what a super star big sister was! You’ll see quite a few photos of her below as she posed so cooperatively for me . Can you see how much she adores her new little friend?  That isn’t just photography tricks! She really did dote on Anna-Beth. We put together a few different props and you’ll see that this sweet baby liked to be awake!  She gave me some great eye contact for such a new little one.  Loved it!

Baby “S” – Abbotsford Newborn Session

I did this newborn session forever ago and I’m just posting it now. Story of my life! I’m going to stop drawing attention to the fact I’m a terrible blogger and hope people don’t notice 😉
This little angel decided to join the world early and give her parents some drama early in her life. Thankfully she is healthy and well and adjusting to life outside the womb nicely.  You’ll notice she’s ridiculously cute to boot.  We had some fun awake time before she went down for a well deserved snooze.  Look at those gorgons locks too.  Momma will have some fun styling that hair soon.  Makes me wish I had a girl too…

Abbotsford Family Photographer – 6th month old baby boy

Chubby cheeks are stupendous.  Truly amazing.  And, I am always smitten by them.  So, imagine my happiness when I met this little fellow one sunny afternoon!   This little charmer was a tad shy for his photo session but what he lacked in smiles, he sure made up for in sweet chubby cheeks.   We went for a little walk around the family property and enjoyed all the spring afternoon had to offer.  Family photography sessions, like this one, are some of my favourite sessions to do.  Watching this lovely couple grow into a family of three and enjoy their darling little boy is something I really get a kick out of.  I’ve know them since the engagement days a few years ago and it’s always an honour when I get to photograph people again and again.   Congratulations on your perfect little man!

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

It is still sometimes a little daunting for me to meet brand new clients and capture such important memories in their lives. I am very driven in providing the absolute best family photography I can and my end goal is for people to always walk away with images they cherish for a lifetime. It’s not something I take lightly and I’m constantly striving. What makes my job so incredibly rewarding is families like these. I met this group for the first time as we tromped through a muddy park on a very chilly fall day. They were stupendous. Taking the cold and muck in stride and smiling throughout the entire photo session. I love the fall back drop and the clothing choices, I love joyful faces and laughter but mostly I love seeing a family that is so obviously connected to each other. Love my job and days like this!

Abbotsford Family Photographer – “K” Maternity and Family

It’s Throw Back Thursday so I thought I’d share this fall maternity and family session from last November. It was really lovely to see the love this sweet blended family has for each other and their good-natured dog Cabo added to the fun.   The location was perfect for their family photo session and the soft light shinning through the trees made it feel a little ethereal.  That’s my favorite!   Each subject was so relaxed and easy in front of the camera and photographing them was a breeze.   It’s always easy when subjects do exactly as I ask them but I truly didn’t mind the spontaneity that the furry subject brought to the party either.   Capturing our fury friends is much like chasing two year olds so I’m more than happy to play along. Enjoy the photos!

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.
