Sassy & Ben . Vancouver Family Photographer.

It's always fun to return to families homes and photograph them several years later. The last time I photographed Beth's family, Ben was still in preschool and Sassy was just in Kindergarten. Now they are both school age and it's so fun to see how kids grow and change in just a few years. We did a half day session starting early in the morning - I think Ben may have been the only one awake when I arrived! The plan was to have breakfast at home and then head to Deep Cove for a family Kayak. I have to give HUGE thanks to Tara of Tara Lily Photography for offering to be my Kayak chauffeur for the day.. I'm not too sure how I would have managed otherwise! Oh, and there are entirely way too many kayak images.. but it was such a gorgeous day, how could I not! 
Many many of my favorites from our time together -

Cohen, Avery & Blake . Vancouver Documentary Family Photographer

I arrived at Cohen, Avery & Blake's home just as the sun was coming up (apparently my kids aren't the only ones who like to rise at the crack of dawn!) and hung out with them for the entire day until they all went to sleep. It was a pretty fantastic and fun filled day and I LOVE that they were all so down with just being their selfs and letting me into their lives for the day. I enjoyed photographing them all so much and I have many favorites from my day with them -

Charley & Owen . Vancouver Family Photographer

I've been photographing this family since Charley was in Mom's tummy. And Owen was my first birth session I ever photographed (and subsequently became hooked on documenting births!). Over the years we've become good friends, so it is always such a pleasure to take their photos.  I hope you enjoy this little glimpse into their life as much as I enjoyed photographing it. 
Many many of my favorites from our 'day in the life' afternoon together -

Soon to be a family of 4 . Vancouver Family Photographer

I'm soo behind on my family blogging so I thought, since baby brother is already several months old, why not start with this family maternity session. Big sister Klara, Bruce the dog and mom and dad. An afternoon and evening spent with them all, including a skype call with Grandma in Australia and a visit from her Grandma and Grandpa here in Vancouver. Love these types of casual maternity sessions that are really more just documenting the family as they are before the baby arrives. 
Many of my favorites (and the newborn session to be posted soon!) -

Baby Sohana Session Preview . Vancouver Newborn Photographer

Last week I photographed little  Sohana, just 1 week, and her family - big Brother Krishen and Mom & Dad. The last time I saw and photographed them all was when Krishen was just 8 months so I was looking forward to seeing them all again and meeting Krishen as a big 3 year old! So much fun with all of them and as per usual, I have a hard time keeping my preview to just a few images, so a few more ;). Many many more to come in a bigger post soon -

Gabrielle . 2nd Birthday

Admittedly, I'm not your typically Birthday Party photographer. Parents are usually thinking cake smashes or pretty posed photos of their children dressed in tutu's or little suit & ties. A birthday decorated for the pinterest boards made perfectly just so is not the birthday party I would be there to photograph. BUT when you get a family like this one - who are all for just documenting the experience and capturing the moments and all the little things that make a 2 year old.. well a 2 year old. That to me is capturing a birthday party for a child... because what other way would you want it captured, than to photograph who they are at that age on their birthday - their personalities and little expressions and moments that make them who they are rather than make it about something they are not. For this reason, I was so happy to be able to document Gabrielle's afternoon on her birthday spent with those who love her best of all. A small little preview and many more to come -

Dean & Chloe . Vancouver Family Photographer

I met up with Dean & Chloe (and mom & dad!) at their home on a sunny late afternoon/evening for a family session. I told them we would just hang out for the evening and I would capture their family just as it is.. so that's exactly what we did! I love these documentary sessions so much - capturing the little personalities of each member and the love they have for each other as they go about their evening with two little ones running around - often chaotic and busy, but so much fun and definatly a time to remember. 
Many of my favorites from our evening together -
