The Magic of the Season – Coquitlam Family Photography

I love Christmas.  I love the crisp weather, the lights, the festivities and the gathering of families.  And I love capturing the magic of Christmas while it happens all around me.

I had a session last week that I took a shot that captured a little bit of how I feel.  Enjoy, the Magic of Christmas!







Mini Sessions with the Lemon family – Langley Family Photography

Another group from my mini sessions in September… love this family!  My kids have grown up with E & M’s kids, from preschool to Elementary school, and it’s been so awesome to watch them grow and come into their character.  Again, the weather was spectacular, and we had a lot of fun…. enjoy your teasers!

Mini Sessions at Derby Reach – Little Miss O

I had a wonderful day of mini sessions at the end of September. The day started with great fog (what amazing atmosphere) and ended in lovely sunshine.

I loved touching base with Holly and Tyler… their cute little girl, Miss O, has grown so much over the years.  Please enjoy these teasers…

Lovely light, amazing family – Surrey Family Photography

My shoot last week came together a little bit uncertainly… an email to see if I was available on a certain date, certain time, certain location… the family was gathering for a birthday party and wanted a family session while everyone was in the same place.  It worked that I was available for it all, although the weather was looking unpredictable… all week it keep saying rain.  The night before, though, it changed to sunshine… and it was lovely!

I had shot a session with Shawna 7 years ago when her oldest son was just a baby… he’s now the oldest of the cousins.  We had a blast, and got some great shots… enjoy your teasers! BFamily1 BFamily2 BFamily3 BFamily4 BFamily5 BFamily6 BFamily7

Throwback Thursday – Brotherly Love – Burnaby Family Photography

I have two sons.  They are blonde, blue-eyed, and have the most amazing smiles.  Most of the time, they love playing with each other, entertaining each other with games, lego, songs…  and their love for each other started way before Logan (the youngest) could even talk.

I love this picture of the two of them.  Ian is 3, and Logan is about 6 months old.  They are sharing a moment, and looking back, I can see how strong their bond connects them.


Throwback Thursday – Coquitlam – Port Moody Newborn Photographer

While in the middle of editing the latest addition to the J family, I thought back to 2011 when I took big sister C’s newborn photos.  Here’s this week’s Throwback Thursday, to when C was just brand new!


Simply adorable – Coquitlam Newborn Session

When Carla contacted me to do her newborn photos, I was excited. Then she told me she had two other children and I was over the moon! I love incorporating siblings into newborn shoots, and capturing the new addition with the whole family.  Her two older children were dreams… played in the playroom or my sons rooms with barely a peep while little Miss G slept peacefully on in my studio.

Here are some of my favourites from the session…
