A Peace Arch Hospital Birth | Fraser Valley Birth Photographer and Videographer

Remember this maternity session? Well she had her baby a few weeks later, and it was such a beautiful hospital birth. Sometimes plans have to change quickly, and it’s so important to have an idea of your preferences, but still be informed and educated about all of your options and any choices that may be presented to you during your birth at any moment. This family had a wonderful backup plan and brought the most incredible…

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.

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…

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…

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

June flew, as all the months seem to do! This month was the last month of school, so my daughter is done Grade 1, and my middle one also turned 5 this month. They're getting so big! My mom (who lives next door) was away for the whole month, and my Mother in Law came for a visit with my 9 year old nephew from Alberta. I was on-call for a few births and appreciated the extra…

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.

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

May was such a beautiful month in Vancouver! Shockingly dry, which is rare for us (we are usually drenched in rain whenever it's not summer). We got to enjoy the spray park a few times and spent a lot of time outdoors, which was really amazing for the kids' energy levels and…
