A Raw and Beautiful Postpartum | Fraser Valley Photographer and Filmmaker

Chelsea is a photographer who lives in Chilliwack, BC. I have followed her on Instagram for quite a while now and I was so excited to be invited into this incredible space post-birth. Their baby was born the day before, her second unassisted home birth (because nobody can ever make it to her house in time) with her midwives and…

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…

Disneyland Vacation | Photographing the Photographer | A Documentary Session

We did our first family trip to Disneyland in 2016. A few weeks before we left, I saw an image someone had taken at Disneyland, and knew that I needed to hire a documentary photographer for our next trip, whenever that was. I wanted to enjoy the day with my kids, not worrying about taking photos myself, and I wanted to be present, I wanted to be IN the photos for once…

A Beautiful Fraser Valley Home Birth | Alyssa Kellert Photo + Film

Ahh home births. There’s just something so cozy and calm about them. It’s incredible to be a part of something so powerful, every single time. This was their FOURTH little baby, third girl (and third home birth)! They were incredibly excited to meet their little one, and mom waited oh so patiently. Mom was in early labour for quite a while, and I was on high alert for their birth…

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…

These are the Days // 365 Daily Photo Project - December 2018

So basically our entire month of December revolved around our road trip down to Disneyland with some extended family. I apologize in advance the the amount of photos in this one…I’m sure it breaks some sort of blogging etiquette rules. Let’s just say it makes up for the months…

A Saturday Morning | Vancouver Family Photographer and Filmmaker

I LOVE family films. They are magic. Video brings LIFE to these memories. I love looking back at my own family films. They make me cry every time. My kids grow like weeds. Hearing their little voices. The things that seem like they will stay forever, but you wake up one day and they don’t mispronounce words the same way or do that cute little…

These are the Days // 365 Daily Photo Project - November 2018

I’m not perfect. I definitely have not been taking a photo every single day this month 😬 . I didn’t even have enough ‘make up’ days to fill in the gaps. It’s been super gloomy, rainy and cold and we just have not been getting out a lot other than errands and regular activities. We got out a bit at the beginning of the month, and took a fun little adventure out to White Rock. We also decorated for Christmas on Remembrance Day long weekend. We will away for part of December so wanted to enjoy the cozy…
