It’s not often that I get to photograph a little baby only 2 days new, but this mama was all for it! I don’t know how to describe the development of our friendship. She started off as my hairdresser gosh… 8 years ago? Just decided to get a trim at the mall one day, and […]

Nothing is quite so sweet as having a Winter baby and being all cozy up at home while the bleary weather does its thing. This family’s favourite month is December. So many sweet memories and special dates fall in that month for them, and their little daughter’s birth is now another <3. Welcome to the […]

I was interviewed once and they asked me why I shot so many genres of photography, versus specializing in just one. The answer is because to me, they are all connected. I love that I documented this little one’s parents when they were engaged, and then was with them on their wedding day. I love […]

Some of the images I adore the most of my own children aren’t where I get out fancy props and set-ups, but just where I am interacting with them, holding them, treasuring them. This is why I am a lifestyle photographer. I love and admire the work of portrait photographers and know what a huge […]

This sweet family and I have a long history.  They befriended me when I first moved to the coast 9 years ago this summer and didn’t know anyone other than Nick.  They let me practice on them when I was first learning photography and had yet to start a business.  And the dad and I […]

Last weekend I had the privilege of documenting little baby E who was only 8 days new.  Big sister decided to celebrate by declaring herself ready to be potty trained – nothing like adding some chaos to the mix of bringing home a new baby, but this mama is rocking it all like a champ!  You’ve […]

I have so many little babies to edit and post over the next week or so!  So many mamas giving birth this month <3.  This little guy came over for a photo shoot last Tuesday and was A-DORABLE.  He was just over 9lbs (the same size as my previous baby) and was only 9 days […]

I was interviewed a couple of years ago and one of the questions was why did I enjoy shooting so many different genres of photography.  Some people are solely wedding photographers, solely newborn, or solely family.  I do all three and a bit more.  My answer was something along the lines of it all feels […]

I have been waiting for this little bundle of squish to arrive ever since doing this family’s maternity / family photos last Fall  <3.  She showed up the day before her due date weighing over 8lbs.  I was pretty sure shooting her was going to give me baby fever, and I was right!  Those sleepy, pouty […]

Our friends gave birth to the most adorable little girl this Winter, and I loved doing this lifestyle session for them of their now 2-month old, Hannah.  I also love her name (being that it is our first choice, too, if we ever stop having little boys, haha!).  She’s such an easy-going, smily baby, and […]

What could be cuter than two little red-head sisters that adore each other.  Well, big sister adores little sister.  Little sister tolerates big sister.  Welcome to the world Bailey!  You are very, very loved.

Welcome to the world baby Carter!  You were 12 days new when we did your first photoshoot and you saved a few baby smiles just for us.  You also saved your first projectile poop for when I did a diaper change for mom and dad – thanks for that little buddy 😉

Last weekend, I had the pure joy of documenting little Annora!  She is two pounds lighter than my little guy EVER was, and holding her brought back the baby-fever even though I’m still very much in the trenches of being a new mom, myself! She was a perfect sleeping angel for the beginning of her […]

Mar 04 / 2016

This past weekend marked the official end of my “maternity leave”. I have that in quotes because I’ve been teaching, emailing, posting, and meeting with clients all along, but I hadn’t actually picked up the camera and gone out to shoot since Micah arrived in January. It seemed fitting that my first shoot back was […]

This post will be short and sweet in terms of text because momma is tired and has lots to do!  I will say that doing your own newborn photos is very emotionally and physically challenging, but also super rewarding.  I learned to just embrace some imperfection, and as a good friend of mine says, sometimes […]

I started 2015 running a very small photography business as I already had a full-time job that took up 50+ hours of my week with the commute, and a part-time job every evening on top of that.   Whatever time was left over, I dedicated to photography.  I wanted to make a few extra dollars to […]

2015 Year In Review

Dec 16 / 2015

This past weekend I had two shoots scheduled, but the heavy downpour of rain postponed one.  However, it was the perfect sort of weather to crank up the heat, and cuddle our friends’ 12-day-old baby.  She took the first hour to convince that it was sleepy-time, but for the remainder of the morning, she was […]

Once upon a time I swore I would never shoot weddings.  Now I am a wedding photographer.  Once upon a time (read:  a few months ago) I swore I would never shoot newborns, but now I’m afraid I might be falling in love with that too….  Please let me introduce you to my dearest friend’s […]

This past weekend, I was asked to document my friend’s baby shower.  That sounds quaint and intimate doesn’t it?  Oh, don’t be deceived!  My friend loves on a LOT of people, and pours her heart and soul into being there for countless friends day and night.  I have never seen someone so invested in others’ […]

Feb 08 / 2015

I’m writing this post on the weekend I was supposed to be doing a Newborn Shoot.  However, little Kezzie was so eager to meet the world that she came a few days ahead of schedule.  Thus, her and I made our acquaintance last weekend instead :).  Here she is in her 7-day-old glory.  All 5 and a […]
