Christmas Countdown Continues – kim culbert photography

Christmas Countdown is on!

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.


2 month old cutie – Coquitlam Baby Photographer

This little guy was so full of charm.  He was such a happy guy for our session, and although I can find 2 month olds hard to predict, Mr. S was so laid back, and happy to do whatever we asked.  Put him in a basket, yep, he was okay with that.  Give him some tummy time… yep, still good!

I love capturing these moments, as in a baby’s first year they grow SO much.

Sunny afternoon glow- Coquitlam Family Photographer

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.


Sibling love – Surrey Family Photographer

I had the pleasure of the W family in my home studio last weekend.  They braved my non-air conditioned house for some classic family photos, and these kids are seriously adorable.  Full of character, they both had a serious side, and a fun side.
Please enjoy your sneak peek!

A King is born – Coquitlam Newborn Photographer

A big welcome to little Mister K and congratulations the H family.  Their little boy came early into the world, taking his time making his entrance, but it was well worth the effort.

I had a hard time choosing just a few to share, as this gorgeous family is super photogenic.  Enjoy your teaser;

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun – Teen Birthday Sessions Coquitlam

When O’s mom contacted me to shoot her daughter’s birthday session, I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but I thought it would be a lot of fun.  Sure enough, O brought her great friend P, and the two of them had a blast posing, laughing and making memories.  It brought me back to my childhood days, having fun with my girlfriends.  So, not only was I able to capture these moments for this duo, but I got to relive some of the charm of being 13.

Enjoy your teasers…

Redheads love Autumn! – Coquitlam Family Photography

Autumn is such a wonderful time of year… the leaves are changing, the air has a bite to it, and it’s okay to bundle under warm, cozy sweaters and curl up by the fire.

It seems to be one of my most busiest seasons, as the scenery is just too gorgeous.  And then you add redheads into the mix, and it’s mind-blowing!  What a combination!  We lucked out with a foggy morning adding some cool atmosphere into the mix, and some great sun later.

Enjoy this sneak peek!

Updating Family Photos – Port Coquitlam Family Photography

These friends of mine, they have a gorgeous family.  The issue was that the last family picture they have is when their youngest, Mr. C, was just a baby.  Skip ahead 4 years and it was time for an update.

The fall day was bright, but cold, and Mr. C wasn’t having any of it.  The outtakes from this session were priceless, as the expressions on Mr. C’s face had a variety of moods.  In the end, I got some great smiles from him, and got a new family photo for the wall.

Enjoy your teasers….
