The H Family | Langley BC | Mini Sessions

Fun Facts about the H Family:

  • I have known Dad since the 6th Grade
  • Mom and my Husband use to live on the same street together
  • Our oldest daughters are 2 1/2 weeks apart
  • We have the same birth order for our children

It was great catching up with the H family on Sunday and meeting Mr Z for the first time!  I really think he’s a keeper and hopefully his big sister will change her mind about giving him (and her little sister) away soon!

D Family | Langley BC | Mini Session

The D family kicked off my 2010 family mini session on Sunday.  This was the first time meeting them and what fun we had! They are such a great family and I can tell that there is a lot of love and laughing that goes on in their house! 

Thanks for coming out on Sunday D family!  I hope you like your sneak peeks! 

Sisters | Child Photography | Langley BC

The weather has been  super crazy these days and we weren’t sure this session was going to be a go on Saturday, but after some miserable morning rain, the clouds parted, the sun came out and we ran to Fort Langley to capture these cutie Twinados (as their Mom calls them!)  The session started off with a couple shy girls, moved to distracted by all the beautiful brides getting their pictures done and ended with a whole lot of silliness!!  So fun!  

Hope you guys enjoy your sneaks peaks!

Fall Mini Sessions | Langley Photographer |

In honour of the first week of school and the fact that fall is around the corner, I have decided to release a date for my mini sessions!  Family photos make great Christmas gifts and this year I have included 2 mini-accordion albums with each session! They are great little books that fold up into a 2x3 size! Just like a wallet size photo! Perfect for a purse or pocket.  They make a great gift for a Grandma who likes to show off her beautiful family! 

I will have a sample on the blog later this week, but for now, here are the deets!

Session numbers are limited!  I will be deciding on the location of the session a little closer to the date but it will be in the Langley area.

Yaquina Head Lighthouse | Newport Oregon

I spent the last 5 days on a mini vacation at the Oregon coast with my family.  Its becoming a tradition for us and this year we thought we would try a new town, Newport.  One of our stops while we were there was to visit the Yaquina Head lighthouse. It is Oregon’s tallest lighthouse and it is still working.  You can climb the 114 steps to the top, but our little guy wasn’t tall enough, so we stayed on the ground.  The day was super windy and we had a little picnic at the lighthouse and then made our way into the interpretive centre for some more (warmer) exploring.  I totally recommend stopping in for a visit if you are ever in the area.  Its so worth the trip and the view speaks for itself! 

Corey + Melissa | Wedding Photography | Maple Ridge, BC

This wedding goes to prove to all those anti-Twitter people that Twitter works for your business!  I met Corey through Twitter.  We followed each other sometime last year and through our tweeting back and forth, Melissa and him booked me to photograph their wedding.  When their wedding day arrived, it felt more like I was photographing friends than clients.  It was great!

Corey and Melissa were wed on one of the hottest days of the year in Maple Ridge, oh my! I mean hot! 35 degree Celsius hot! The Saturday before, it was a torrential downpour so, there wasn’t too much complaining :)

The day started off with me photographing the ladies getting ready and my second shooter Carol Kerfoot hanging with the guys.  We all met up at St Paul’s Lutheran for their beautiful ceremony.  It was filled with lots of tears and laughter and love!

After the ceremony we headed to the Maple Ridge ACT for photos.  What a great place, lots of urban and gardens.  Perfect! The best part was this cement area where we spent a lot of time.  Mostly because it was shady and cool and had some really fun architecture.

The kiddos in the wedding party were so awesome!  They were pros in fact! This was the flower girl and ring bearer’s second wedding this month! They were great with the heat and all the pictures and I can safely say I didn’t hear one complaint from them!  Let’s not even mention how cute they are!

The bridal party head shots were captured by the most excellent Carol!

When I photograph receptions, I am always thankful for the camera in front of my face, because 9 times out of 10 there is always a few tears that I shed.  This reception was no different, and then Melissa’s Dad took the stage.  He played an audio tape of her Grandfather from Australia who has passed on.  On the tape he sang a song specifically for Melissa when she was young. This brought the house down.  Everyone was crying, Carol and I included.  It was a beautiful treasure.

Thank you Melissa and Corey for such a wonderful day and allowing me to document it for you!  Your wedding was fabulous and one that I will remember for a long time. Congratulations!!

                               

At Last! B + N | Burnaby Wedding Photography | Burnaby BC

 I titled this post, “At Last” mostly cuz its my Blog and I can.  No really, its true!  Our family has been waiting for these 2 special people to get hitched for a long……..long……..long time.   

This announcement also began with a phone call that brought tears to my eyes.   Waaaaay back in January Uncle Brad called me, wanting to know if I was busy on July 31st.  I believe I told him only if he was getting married.  Turns out Aunty Nancy and him were getting married on what was to be their 11th anniversary of the first time they met.  Finally!!  There’s been a gorgeous ring on that pretty lady’s finger for a long time!  Needless to say I was looking forward to this wedding all year! 

A last minute addition of 2 gorgeous flower girls made me look forward to this wedding even more!  So on with the pictures!  There is a lot!  Settle in :)

 The wedding was held at the Scandinavian Community Centre in Burnaby.  After the ceremony we headed to Deer Lake Park for a quick portait session with the bridal party.  Its so beautiful there!

 Not too sure who brought this flower girl.  Surely she’ll never work in this town again!

Congrats Uncle Brad and Aunty Nancy! Your wedding was elgant and lots of fun!

Little M | Newborn Photography | Aldergrove BC

 It all started with a simple email in January, “what are you doing mid-July?”  and I started to cry!  I have been waiting for this news for a long time!  My friend Vickie was pregnant!  

I haven’t even had a chance to deliver Vickie’s maternity photos yet and here I am taking pictures of her and John’s gorgeous son! I’m so blessed to photograph such perfection and I couldn’t be happier for John and Vickie! They are 2 people who truly deserve the gift of parenthood.

Cake Smash: The Video

I’m so happy and excited to share this video with you!  Its a compilation of images from the Little N’s cake smash along with some video of the session.   The video was shot by Matthew Hawkins from Silver Screen Tots and all I can say is WOW! I love how it turned out and its so exciting when something you dream in your head turns out just the way you imagined!  I really love this idea of combining the images from cake smashes with video because it is truly just as cute to watch footage of your little one smashing a cake as it if to look at the pictures!

My friend V | Maternity Photography | Aldergrove, BC

Vickie is a special friend of mine! We have been friends with her and her family for many years and in fact, you may reconize Vickie and her hubby John from a pervious blog post. I admit it, when I got an email from Vickie telling me she was going to have a baby, I cried! I am so happy for these two to become parents.  I know that they are going to do an excellent job and have been waiting ever so patiently.  They are in the home stretch now and I can’t wait to meet their little one! 

We were supposed to go to a field tonight, hey, its July! I thought it would be a great evening for some sunset images in a gorgeous field.  Well I should have known better because tonight was dark, rainy and cold.  Darn.  Instead we stuck to some studios images and I am loving the results!
