I am beyond excited that I had the chance to shoot this awesome lady’s second maternity session. She is a client, turned friend that ended up moving away, so having her back in BC to do this session meant a lot, to both of us!   She really misses B.C’s gorgeous mountain views and wanted to incorporate those views in her session. I think its safe to say we accomplished that with these images.

Miss you already B! <3

This dress is available for all booking maternity clients.



 

I know I’ve said it before, but it really shows when two people have a true connection. Images come out so much more romantic and true. These two were not only fun to be around, but easy to photograph. I love sessions that just sort of flow easily without a lot of effort. I love their style and so envious of Ashley’s hair! Looking forward to seeing you guys again!

I did a contest a little while back on my Facebook page. Check out my Facebook here if you ever want to join in on the fun, and possibly win free sessions.  When I pulled Amanda’s name from the bucket, it looked familiar but it didn’t clue in right away that they had booked their newborn session with me months before.  I’m so glad I got to meet them before hand and capture some sweet maternity shots. They are basically models so this session was an absolute breeze.

Can’t wait to see you guys again, and meet your sweet little one!

Have you ever met someone and instantly just felt comfortable around them?  Thats how I felt with this family. They are so sweet and easy going. Their little girl is a hoot, and well… they are just plain great to me around! We chased some golden light and ended up with some great candid shots. Sometimes asking couples to get close for the more romantic shots can feel a bit awkward or uncomfortable at first. I totally get it, and thats why I give complete direction right down to how to place hands and fingers. For this young married couple though, they needed little to no direction and pure chemistry shines through in these images. Not to mention brit is an absolutely knock out! Thanks for making my job a breeze guys! Hopefully your newest addition makes my job easy too! ha  See you in a few weeks!

This session was actually done in two parts. Jenn and I explored the beautiful beaches of Vancouver for an evening/hangout session and then a few days later did some with her 7 year old daughter. I think the mommy and me portion of this session is my favourite. Not so much because of the picture outcome but because its something special they got to do together before their little boy arrives. Capturing some sweet moments between mom and only child before life changes, is extra special.

It was great capturing this session for you Jenn, I hope you love them <3

I was beyond excited when Anna had sent me a msg asking me to photograph her maternity session. Anna and I go way back. We were bff’s back in high school but I hadn’t seen her in years!  It was awesome to catch up, and get to help her document this special time in her life.  This session was full of laughs,  wild creatures hidden in bushes and a few … ok maybe more then a few.. thorns. lol  Now that the scratches have healed, I’m so glad we ventured into the tall grass. She looks stunning in the dress with the sun backlighting her gorgeous baby bump.

Thanks so much for coming out this way Anna, it was SO wonderful getting to see you again! <3

P.S

The dress she is wearing is the newest maternity dress added to my collection for clients to wear <3

Does it ever feel good to get outside! I feel like I haven’t done outdoor sessions in forever. I love this time of year for evening sessions.

When your clients are beautiful, their chemistry oozes and the golden light is perfect. Thats what this session entailed.  We took a drive up chilliwack lake road and shot for only an hour and managed to get so many great shots. I was dying to share these images.

So looking forward to meeting their sweet girl in just a few short weeks!

This post is massive. Well.. not my write up, but the images I have put in. Their gallery is huge, because she is the most adorable glowing pregnant woman ever! I couldn’t decide on which to give, so I decided to give them… well .. most of them haha It was hurting my heart throwing away images I thought were nice, just to make a gallery smaller. I say…. if I got it.. Im gonna give it!

I might be a little obsessed with the bottom images of  her in the skirt against the golden light. She’s just stunning <3

What an adorable couple! I adore them so much. This session was all over the place due to crazy wind weather. Looking back I’m actually glad it worked out that way, as now we have such a wide variety of shots.  Im really looking forward to meeting their sweet little one in the coming weeks!

Thanks for being such good sports guys, Ill see you again soon!
