This little sweetheart came out to see me during the summer to celebrate turning one. We had intended to do a newborn session with her, but unfortunately she gave her family a few scares when she was born and the photos had to wait. I am so relieved to say that she is totally okay now and thriving. I can’t believe what a big smile she has and it made me laugh every time she busted that cute grin out haha! Her mom wanted to have her pink balloon in a few of the photos, but after we captured just a couple, it sailed away and we had to do without. Thankfully we had captured enough cute shots with it before that happened! I had such a nice time walking around the lake with her family and enjoying a nice, warm summer day taking photos of a sweet family. Thanks for coming to see me!

Look at that GIGANTIC smile! HAHA! She is so cute!!!

Beach shooting is not something I am terribly used to as it is only nice enough here for a short time in the summer to do these sessions and when the days are nice enough the beaches can often get pretty crowded. We lucked out and got a great day at Jericho beach to photograph this family though and I was so happy with the photos we got which turned out to be a great mix to showcase the lush greenery of BC as well as the oceans meeting the mountains. This location is special to this couple as they live nearby and they got married here. We had a good time chatting and reminiscing about that since it is also where my husband and I got married so it’s a special place for our family too! It was just a perfect day to photograph such a beautiful family and this may well just be one of the cutest little girls I have ever laid eyes on. Thank you for coming to me for your family session!

I about died when she reached up and rested her little arm on her dad’s! Cuteness overload!

This little man was just in 3 months ago for his 9 month session and I couldn’t believe it when I couple of months ago it was already time for his cake smash session! This was the first time his little furbaby “sister” joined him for the shoot and I couldn’t resist getting some shots of her and of them together before getting into the cake smash. His mom went to all the trouble to make this cake herself after taking a class on how to do it. It was so cute even the dog couldn’t resist a taste…HAHAHA!

Someone weaseled her way in there for a taste when we were all busy trying to keep her brother on the paper and happy HAHAHA!

  • Karolina - Such an amazing birthday shoot 😉 So simple but at the same time so nice and creative. Loved it, thank you for sharing this!ReplyCancel

I was so excited when I got the inquiry email from this mom to be. She had so many good ideas and plans for her session! This is one of my very favourite maternity sessions to date. We started out doing a picnic in the park using some books and a vintage basket as props to incorporate their love of reading as that was one of the concepts she had in mind. Then we came back to the studio for some more intimate glamour shots. I’ll only share a couple of those ones here. All I can say is that days like this make me feel like I have the BEST job in the world (and I do haha!). Thank you for coming to me and for bringing all your creative energy with you! Stay tuned for the post with this couple’s new addition coming up soon!

I think this has to be one of my new favourite maternity images I have done. I just love the serenity and the peace I could feel from her and I am reminded of that feeling every time I see this image.

What a dream it was to get out to Deer Lake and photograph this beautiful little girl and her family this summer. We had a lovely walk around the grounds and shared a lot of laughs. Turns out we went to the same school in different years and even knew a few of the same people. Such a small world! This little lady was not too happy when we put her in the grass but we still got some nice shots regardless. I can’t wait until it warms up again and I can go back to play around with the light at this location as it is just GORGEOUS during the summer months.
