An Adoption Story | Fraser Valley Photographer and Filmmaker

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to adopt a baby? Rob and Sarah so graciously invited me to film their adoption journey, and it was absolutely incredible. Ethel just turned ONE. So I thought it was fitting to finally blog their story! YES they have a pet pig who lives in their house, and YES she is breastfeeding…

Family Love | Vancouver Photographer and Filmmaker

In 2017, another local photographer referred one of his past wedding clients on to me for newborn photos. I absolutely love getting new clients via referral, there’s just something special about it. Fast forward to this year, when they contacted me for family photos as well! Just ask any photographer, repeat clients are THE BEST. You already have a wonderful connection and you always get right down to the…

Quinnly's First Birthday | Vancouver Family Photographer + Videographer

Danielle is a repeat client, I got to do Quinnly’s newborn photos last year. Their family really wanted some documentary type images to capture a special event in their family this year, because children literally grow like weeds. We decided on her youngest daughter’s first birthday! We were lucky enough to be able to do their session ON the exact day that Quinnly turned one…

Stacie and I met online (how else does one meet new friends these days?!). I’ve always loved her photos, she’s uber talented. I was so excited when she was pregnant with baby #3 and emailed me to ask about newborn photos and a short film. I always feel so honoured with I am hired by fellow photographers. We decided on a partial trade for some family photos…

Coquitlam River Family Session | Vancouver Family Photography + Film

Okay. So seeing little babies that I have the privilege of photographing as newborns, grow into toddlers is such a delight. I love toddlers. They have so many big emotions, expressions and they always are doing weird things, which are super fun to photograph (not always so fun to…

A Saturday Morning | Day in the Life | Family Photographer, Vancouver

Day in the Life sessions are one of my favourites to photograph. I get to capture some real, sweet and often funny moments that so often go unnoticed. This family had a half DITL session, and we got to spend the morning together! I arrived around 7:45am and joined them while they…

Adelaide's Sweet Family | Documentary Newborn Photographer, Vancouver BC

It was such a joy to photograph this family! I love how they fell right into the documentary style and just went about their lives as if I weren't there. It was so beautiful to see. No expectations, just real life. They were all so full of joy and love. These are the sessions that I live for. These are the…

I was so excited to be able to do this documentary session in Fort Langley BC with the Teasdale family. This family is absolutely my favourite. Katy booked a documentary family session with me during my Black Friday promo, so she got a free mini film with her family session! I absolutely adore doing films. It…

An Early Christmas Morning with my Family | Documentary Family Photographer

This year I offered to cover Christmas Eve and Christmas Day for a couple local birth photographers, so we did our family Christmas a few days early on the 23rd! When your kids are little and can't tell time or dates is a good time to do this 😉 I REALLY didn't want to miss out on our Christmas stuff if I got called to a birth, so this was a really great alternative for us. This was also the first year I bought...
