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 - 

family, newborns

Klara . Vancouver Newborn Photographer

 I love watching new moms and dads with their babies. The look in their eyes that is the look of a new love they've never even come close to feeling before, how they unconsciously stroke their skin over and over trying to memorize every little bit, how little fingers and little toes are now a road map to the heart. 

I photographed Klara's newborn session when she was just 5 days new to this world. She was such a sweetheart and this was such an enjoyable session to photograph. And big brother Bruce the dog - although not too sure yet about this new little baby, I'm sure they will be the best of buds in the years to come!  I also just realized I haven't blogged moms maternity photos yet and since they are some of my favorites I've sho,t I just might do that coming up. 
But for now, Klara's newborn images -

Mackenna & Zoe . Vancouver Family Photography

A month or so ago when Vancouver was warm and sunny and getting amazing sunsets,  Lindsay got a hold of me to see if I thought it would be a good idea for her family session to take their boat out on the ocean and dock it at a private little beach. Obviously I didn't hesitate to reply that I thought that was the best idea ever! And it really was! Such a fun evening with this family. We met at the pier at Rocky Point and headed out on the water, docked, tried to catch jellyfish, hiked around a bit, played in the water and eventually came back. I love these types of sessions and I really do think I luck out in getting to photograph the best families.Thank you so much for bringing me along to document one of your summer evenings! A few of my favorites -

An evening with the Crossman's . Vancouver Family Photographer

"Justine! I don't even know what to say. There are no words to explain how grateful I am to have this EPIC series of images of our family life. I thought I "knew" your style (and you know I was already in love with it), but these are so far beyond any expectations I had. The colours, the beautiful big wide shots, then these amazing details like hands on the monkey bars or me brushing Sarah's hair..., the expressions you caught in the tiny moment they crossed someone's face, the action shots!!!! You captured togetherness, and then individual personalities. Sorry, I'm rambling, I just can't even put it into words. The further I got into the gallery, the more tears came... tears of gratefulness? Just the feeling that I have these images to hold in my hands and look at FOREVER. Ahhhh, you're the best, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!! xoxoxoxox" I might have cried a bit as well after receiving that message. THIS is exactly why I love family photography. THIS is exactly what I want to leave families with. Thank you so much to Beth and her whole family for allowing me into your home to document an evening with you. This was the best session ever.. no seriously.. If all my sessions were like this and I could document every family I photograph like this, I would be the happiest photographer ever. And yes, I know I've been saying that a lot lately.. but seriously, I get to take photos of some pretty awesome little families. Or at least families who are totally cool just doing what they do best (which is basically just hanging out together and having fun).. and then throw in some backyard tree climbing, alley bike riding & hopscotching, popsicle eating (complete with popsicle juice face), bathtime and storytime.. yeah, a perfect evening of togetherness and family.

Sass & Benny you were so much fun to hang out with for the evening! A few of my favorites (actually a lot of my favorites.. I had a hard time deciding!) -

These two turned one at the end of last year and I forgot how much fun this session was!  Having one toddler at a time is busy, I can only imagine what it would be like to have two! Have I mentioned how much I love home sessions - getting photos doing what you do and being a family together. Such fun little personalities and such a great time for mom and dad to capture. Some of my favorites from Evelyn & Payton's session -
