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!

Bring your Horse to your Grad Photo Session

Words I love to hear, “My daughter wants her photos done at a barn with her horse”. Um, yeah, I think I can handle that! Oh, and why not throw on a pretty dress and bring the family. Good idea. Glad ya thought of that, Mom 😉 Grad photos are always enjoyable but I love the added challenge excitement of including animals. Look that this beautiful creature!  And, this stunning grad! What a dress. I do sometimes pinch myself that this is my job. I’ve been photographing for over 12 years now and I can still honestly say I really love what I do.  Congratulations to this sweet and kind girl. Brynn, you really are a natural in front of the camera!  Wishing you all the best.

Ten Years Goes Too Quickly

When you’re a kid no one tells you how quickly ten years goes by when you become an adult.  As a child, summers seem to go on for years and the school year, that felt like decades! But, alas, time does fly as you grow up. Ten years ago I photographed this family at Elwood park and the two delightful daughters were girly and giggly. Now the oldest is graduating and both are sweet and elegant. It was really wonderful to celebrate with them. We managed to capture a myriad of locations, which of course always make this photographer happy. Congratulations beautiful Callie!  Hoping your next ten years are full of laughter and happiness…and don’t fly by too quickly!

How to Raise Great Teenagers

Truth is, I have no idea how to raise great teenagers  (I’m in the middle of that game right now) but,  this couple seem to have it all figured out!  I spent a hot Saturday evening hanging out with this crew and laughed my socks off. As did they, from the look of the photos! I admit though, laughing shots are some of my favourites.  Might be why I enjoyed this session so much!  Smiles all around…and they didn’t even have to say cheese 😉 Thanks for visiting my page!

Celebrating Family with Photos

I was contacted by this mom a few months ago. Her grandma had passed and she wanted to use the inheritance to do something special. Her grandmother valued photos and family so it seemed quite fitting to book a family session. What a lovely way to build memories and honour a beloved grandparent! We took a stroll through one of my favourite places and enjoyed the wildflowers. I really loved goofing around with these kiddos, too. What great sports!  I also adored the colour pallet mom and dad chose for the family. The pinks and blues stand out so well in the green forest.
