Outdoor Family Photography

Outdoor family photography is one of my favorites!  No more posed, stiff and serious photos.  Natural is in.  So, have fun, laugh and enjoy your time.  Let your personalities shine.  When you are able to let go and just be, I’m able to photograph you at your best.  And together, we’ll be able to capture those memories to share with others.  And we’ll have a good time while doing it!

Fun in the Forest

What better way is there to celebrate turning one than having fun in the forest?  River dressed for the part in his plaid.  He had a great time discovering trees, ferns, and moss.  So many textures to feel and stuff to learn.  However, not everything was to his liking as modeling can be a hard job!  It is exhausting to be charming all the time especially when you’d rather explore.  Next time he’s just going to bring Mom and his […]

Why Candid Family Photography Isn’t Really Candid

I love relaxed and fun photography and many of my clients want this candid look for their photos, too. In reality, candid family photos sessions are not exactly candid at all. Technically speaking, candid means to “take a photo informally, especially without the subject’s knowledge”. But, I’m guessing that when you’re at your photo session, you know you’re getting your photo taken! So, how do I get my photos to look candid?  I actually have to spend some time directing […]

Behind the Scenes – Editing Photos Before & After

Who out there doesn’t love a good before and after?! I admit, I love them. I mean, love, love, love them! There is something so utterly satisfying about seeing something not so fabulous turned into something amazing. I especially love renovation before and afters so I hope to post some for the new studio soon – just waiting for everything to be 100% complete. For now, I’ll have a little fun with a session I did last fall. On average, […]

The Adlam Family – Sunset Fall Photo Session

Friendships, like the one I have with this family, are sunshine for the soul.  No matter the struggle, no matter the grief, these folks shine, brightly.  So it was appropriate that they chose to have their session at sunset.  As you can see, they love to laugh and they know how to have fun.  Smiles and joy abound.  Sunshine every time we meet. Thanks for visiting my page! I am an Abbotsford outdoor photographer based in beautiful British Columbia. If […]

Mommy and Me

This is my beautiful friend and her daughter. Photographing “my people” is something incredibly special for me. It fills my heart with joy to watch them interact. When you’re a mom you get a special kind of love.  A love that is generous and unconditional.  A love that binds.  This duo shares that kind of love.  The kind of love that makes you feel secure.  That gives you an identity.  That encourages you to grow up so you too, can […]

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 […]
