David and Emilie just turned one and maybe because I have my own almost 1 year old, but I just love this age! So much fun.. although I imagine it is so much busier with twin 1 year olds toddling around! We met up with mom and dad and their two big sisters at Deep Cove for an evening of playing and exploring.

Stella . Vancouver Newborn Photographer

I love doing newborn sessions when there's an older sibling who's just become a big brother or big sister. So much love and so much fun. Stella was 10 days when we did her session and her big brother Riley was actually my very first newborn session ever just about 3 years ago so it was fun to come back and do little Stella's.

A new baby sister named Pepper . Ewert Family . Vancouver Family Photographer

e-90.jpg

A documentary session with this new family of 5. Little Pepper arrived just 5 days before and she is seriously adorable and surrounded by a whole lot of love - including two big brothers (one who can't get enough of her.. and well.. one who is still deciding.) I think quite a bit of this family and mama Kyla, who is quite the photographer herself. I was so so happy to come and document their morning. Arriving with kids still in PJ's is the best - I  love all the images of them having breakfast & getting ready for the day. Also, this is probably the most images I've ever included in a family blog post.. but I really didn't know what to leave out. I think they all together tell the story of this family - the personalities, the love & bond they all have. Plus I know, mom will enjoy having these all together :).

A whole lot of favorites from this session - e (2)e (3)e (4)e (5)e (7)e (8)e (9)e (10)e (11)e (12)e (13)e (14)e (15)e (16)e (17)e (18)e (19)e (20)e (21)e (22)e (24)e (25)e (26)e (27)e (28)e (29)e (30)e (31)e (32)e (33)e (34)e (35)e (36)e (37)e (38)e (39)e (40)e (41)e (42)e (45)e (46)e (47)e (48)e (49)e (50)e (51)e (52)e (55)e (56)e (57)e (58)e (59)e (60)e (61)e (62)e (63)e (64)e (65)e (66)e (67)e (69)e (70)e (71)e (72)e (73)e (74)e (75)1 (1 of 1)resizee (77)e (78)e (80)e (82)e (84)e (84b) (1)e (84b) (2)e (84b) (3)e (85)e (86)e (96)e (97)e (99)e (100)e (100)be (101)e (102)e (104)e (105)e (105b) (1)e (105b) (2)e (105b) (3)e (106)e (107)e (108)

a family session at third beach . Vancouver family photographer

I've done a few sessions with this family now and it's been so great to photograph the girls as they get older (our first session was when mom was pregnant with Charley)! Alex & Charley are both so much fun and so full of personality! We spent an evening together at 3rd beach running in the trails and then down at the beach playing in the sand and swimming in the waves.

Sophie . Granville Island Family Photography

feature.jpg

This year I've really been trying to push 'documentary' style sessions with the families I work with. Basically having the family choose the location and activity that they all enjoy doing together - a particular park, a beach day, even the morning routine of making pancakes and playing around at home (pajamas and all!) Whatever it is, it has to mean something to the family. What ends up happening is capturing real memories and images of happy families just being themselves rather than having to pose and smile for the camera for several hours.  And then families can really look back on these images and remember what their life was really like and how their kids personalities really were and how much they all really loved each other. Capturing that for families is what makes my heart so happy and I've been loving these sessions so much this year. This was one such session - back when we had some snow in Vancouver and Sophie was just a few months old. This family often spends Sunday mornings walking down to Granville Island for breakfast, coffees and to just enjoy the quiet stillness of the island before the busyness later in the day. So that's what we did. I met them at home as they were getting ready for the morning and headed down to the island with them. A few of my favorites from our morning together -

Ford . Vancouver Newborn Photographer

I really love newborn sessions! Especially relaxed ones at home and especially with awesome little families like the Leesons.  Big brother Knox was actually one of the very first babies I took photos of a few years ago and now it was Ford's turn. And since he's already over 2 months old, this post is long overdue! Congratulations to you all once again and your new family of 4. A few of my favorites from our morning together -

Christine . vancouver maternity photography

I'm pretty sure Christine should be a maternity model.. I loved so many photos from this maternity portrait session that I had a hard time deciding. Thank you so much to Christine for walking around Stanley Park with me while we looked for cherry blossom trees, walked out on beach rocks and spent some time trying out a few different things for her shoot. I can not wait to meet this baby boy in a few short weeks! A few of my favorites from her session -

There's nothing more special than those first few days at home with your brand new baby. They go by quickly and before you know it, that little newborn is not so little anymore. I always feel so incredibly honored when a family asks me to come into their home to document one of those first days. This is Clara - she was 5 days when I visited her and so incredibly loved by mom & dad and everyone around her.A  few of my favorite photos spent documenting their morning together -

Everleigh & Liv . Vancouver Family photographer

I met up with this little family back in November on Ambleside beach for a sunrise session... You may remember their preview post and I've been meaning to post the full session because it's one of my favorites! The sunrise was a amazing and the sky such gorgeous colors! Plus Everleigh and Liv were pretty darn cute and fun to photograph! I hope you enjoy them!

Evelyn & Payton . 10 days . Vancouver Newborn Photographer

I met up with this little family when Eveyln & Payton were just 10 days (you may remember their maternity session - it was one of my favorites).  They are perhaps the sweetest twin babies born to two people who are going to make the best mom & dad ever. These are two lucky little babes who have so much love in their lives. I can not wait to spend more time with them all as they get older. This was also one of the most relaxed & easygoing newborn sessions I've ever done (and with twins!) - clearly they're doing a thing a two right! some of my favorite images from their session -

Jakub & Hana . Deep Cove family session

Doesn't get much better than a session at home with an awesome (and seriously loving!) big brother and an adorable baby sister! Add in a walk down to the beach and a bit of tree climbing and it was a pretty good morning. So many more to come, but for now a small preview - deep cove family 1deep cove family 2

Rach & Roo . vancouver family photographer

fb1.jpg

When I suggested to Rachel that we take photos at sunrise, she was all for it! I was actually hoping for a bit of fog, but I wasn’t hoping for rain! I had even messaged Rachel twice before our session – the 1st time to suggest re-scheduling because of the rain and the 2nd time to say never mind lets just do it.  She didn’t get either message until after the session.. so I love that she was all ready to go with Roo in the morning.. rain or shine! This park is about 5 minutes away from their house, and is one they frequent often. Of course, living in Vancouver – you get pretty used to the rain.. especially if you have little ones who like to play outside regardless! And I knew that Rachel quite often heads out with her boys in the rain, so I figured that it would be just like any other time. When arriving it was still dark and Roo was pretty excited for his morning ‘adventure’ with mom. With rain jackets and an umbrella in tow for my camera, we headed out to explore around. It was soon light (although no sunrise!) and the rain even let up a bit.

It was a pretty good morning and I was so happy we decided to just go for it. I love that it was just the two of them at the park on a quiet rainy morning – allowing me to really capture the connection and relationship between mom & son for Rachel.
