This summer was a busy one, but when my friends asked if I would take their family photos to celebrate their daughter’s 1st birthday, of course I said yes!
I bet Miss E is wishing for a White Christmas for the Lower Mainland this year!
It’s hard to believe, but December is here. And those of you with kids know that there is a balance here, between how fast December slips away, and how long it can seem to take to get to Christmas when you have little voices asking each and every minute of every day “When is it Christmas?”
To pass the time, I’ve created an album on my FaceBook page highlighting my amazing clients from the past year. From brand new babies, to weddings, to just some family love… these people have trusted me to capture their special moments and I feel so happy to have been able to be a part of their memories.
I will also post on my blog each day, counting down, but please feel free to “Like” kim culbert photography on FB and following along there too.
This warm spring weather has been amazing for late afternoon photography sessions and I had the pleasure of capturing the special time for my friend as she creates a new life. I love shoot pregnant mamas, as the human body is truly amazing, and I find it so captivating to photograph those special moments before a baby is born.
The Coquitlam River and forest was a gorgeous backdrop for our session. Please enjoy the teasers:
The weather this April has been amazing… like a preview to summer. It was perfect conditions for a wonderful family session out on the Port Coquitlam Dyke along the Pitt River.
The sun was glinting through the leaves, and the kids were having a good time blowing on the dandelion fluff alongside the path. These kids were so great, and truly had a fun time with each other throughout our session. I love the carefree attitudes that make a session fly by.
Little Baby A was such a superstar for our shoot. She slept like a dream, she woke up for some amazing eye contact, and then went back to sleep for some more great snuggles. I love it when the parents take a little look at how I’ve posed their baby and little sighs of pleasure escape them… mom even had to snap a quick phone shot to send to dad, who couldn’t make it to the shoot.
Enjoy your teasers!
Each fall I have the pleasure of photographing a daycare in North Vancouver for a Friends and Family night. Last fall the A family was there with daughter little Miss S, and the mom expecting another bundle in the summer. It was so great to get to catch up with them again at the photogenic Deer Lake Park in Burnaby and meet the newest little sister, Miss E.
I love it when families opt for the Baby’s First Year package… it gives them a newborn session, six month session and a one year session, along with prints and digital files of each session, a gallery wrapped canvas and an album detailing the first year with their little one. (and selfishly, it lets me experience the wonder of how many changes happens in that first year).
Little Miss A was just over six months at her shoot, and I think she must have just discovered her tongue. It was so cute how she stuck it out for so many of the photos. I enjoyed our shoot, and I can’t wait to see them again in the new year to wrap up her year.
