Sweet, Sweet baby {Abbotsford Newborn Photographer}

I love babies. To all who know me this is no surprise!  Every time I hold one of these little bundles I am ready to jump back in and have one more.  This sweet angel was sleeping so soundly, she didn’t wake up once.  A huge congrats to her mommy and daddy!

When I met this little sweetie it was all I could do to stop from cuddling him.  Seeing how sleepy he was I just knew we were going to get some amazing shots!!  We totally did.  There was some smiles, hat changes, stretched out fingers, toes and little eye lashes.  My mom always says to cherish how little they are because before you know it they will be all grown up!  I think it’s such a special gift to capture these tiny bundles.  Congrats again Danny and Kaylene!!

Sweet smile.

Get Creative With Your Wedding Flowers {Tuesday’s Tips}

Brides today are really stepping out of the box when it comes to their wedding bouquet and flower arrangements. They’re adding unqiue flowers, and other plants to enhance the feel of the flowers.  Whether it’s succulents, feathers, sticks, berries or other interesting foliage, this really sets the them a part from the average bouquet.  Adding something special while wrapping up the stem is also a way to keep it personal, just this month I shot a wedding and the bride added a locket with her grandparents photo in it.  Not only are bouquets becoming more unique, but boutonnieres are also following this trend.  Ends of ferns, buttons, and others amazing little details are being added for the guys.  So when you are ordering your flowers for your wedding consider getting creative with these tips or check out Pinterest!!

Love is…. {Surrey Wedding Photographer}

Love is being together, love is sharing life, love is marrying your best friend…. Jessica and Jay are no exception.  These two have an undeniable bond and will be expecting their first child in a couple months.  Jessica had contacted me, in previous months to shoot her August 18th wedding but with baby news they decided to move the wedding up.   I was so honored and pleased for Jessica to ask me to capture their vows in love to one another.  Their wedding was held at the Surrey Golf Course where we stayed for photos, the ceremony and reception, everything was beautiful.  Thank you so much for having me a part of your day, congrats!!!

Their first look was so emotional I started tearing up.

Jessica, you are gorgeous!!

Lark Rise Horse House {Beautiful Venue}

Lark Rise Horse House is a gorgeous new venue that is in the heart of Mission.  Raeleigh Good is owner of this beautiful spot, and it’s the perfect place to have your wedding, birthday or any gathering with friends and family. We really wanted to showcase what it would be like to have all of her creative team come together and demonstrate what your wedding could be like. I love this shoot, every detail.  After one reschedule, we decided to go ahead rain or shine.  Well…. it rained…. no, it poured!  With everyone already lined up there was no turning back.  So we all met at Lark Rise Horse House for the shoot, Heidi from Angel Kisses did the decor, the flowers created by She’s My Florist, the cupcakes from Tracycakes Bakery, Hair from Under the Veil, makeup from Makeup Infusion, Caitlin Brownless with the stationary, and Carmen from Carmen West Creative designed all the jewelry and accessories!!  We managed to fight the rain and we captured some gorgeous shots.  Thank you to all who came, and a BIG thank you to our two models Alex and Jodi!!!  You two rocked it out in the rain, and are a wonderful couple.

All these girls are so talented!!  Please don’t hesitate to contact them for your up coming wedding!!!

Jodi you are gorgeous!!!

Nathan and Laura {Langley Wedding Photographer}

WOW~ There is so much I want to say about this wedding!!  I just love these two, they are truly near and dear to my heart.  Their wedding was held at the Langley Golf and Banquet Center, I have shot here before so I was excited to be shooting there again!  Little did I know Laura had some amazing things in store….  purple was her colour so everything had  a touch of it, a locket with her grandparent’s photo in it attached to her bouquet, a quartette, gorgeous flowers, and so much more.  I was also happy to meet Lisa Gregory Laura’s wedding planner, she had everything and everyone in line.  I truly appreciated having her a part of the wedding day, not to mention her lovely assistant who helped with many tasks.  Lisa was amazing and if you ever need a wedding planner I highly recommend her.  Getting on to the photos we headed to Campbell Valley Park, one of my preferred places to shoot. We arrived and it was gorgeous!!  Even though the forcast called for a day full of rain, the clouds parted and we had sun!!!!  The barn, school house and massive field were beckoning me, I was in heaven.  I probably could have stayed there for four hours shooting, but having everyone getting hungry and having to stay on schedule, we made our way back to the venue.  Dinner was fabulous and so was dessert!  Laura and Nathan’s cake was unbelievable…. it was white, with rhinestones in the center of light purple flowers, and it was so yummy looking too!  The first dance came shortly after and then father daughter dance. It was so emotional they were tearing up and so was I…. so beautiful.

Thank you Nathan and Laura for a spectacular day, I was so honoured to be a part of it.  A special thanks to my husband and partner in crime for second shooting.  Also to my assistant Stacie, you are awesome!!

Laura, you are stunning!!

A VW, 4 Outfit Changes and 2 Awesome People {White Rock Maternity Photographer}

I was so excited to meet Manraj and her hubby Sukhpreet.  When they stepped out of their VW I was secretly hoping I would get to photograph it… well I didn’t even have to ask as they were hoping for the same thing I was!!  Manraj had four outfit changes, she had earrings, necklaces, a sari, and shoes.  It was so fun to get so many different looks and hats off to her because she was pregnant doing all this!!  I think I love everything about this session, the lighting, the settings, ahhhh LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!  Welll, I can’t really say more, I think the photos will tell the story.  I am so excited to meet their sweet little baby boy or girl, thanks you two.  ;)

Did I mention that I love this session!?

A gift for their sweet new baby.

My fav……  :D

Again….. love…..
