Back in the Spring, Joyce contacted me asking for family portraits with a sunset as the background.  We’ve been having a bit of a drought, to say the least, all year so we didn’t think finding a sunny evening would be too difficult.  Well, we were wrong!  Three times over the course of the Summer […]

Chasing Sunsets | Vancouver Family Photographer

Jul 10 / 2015

“We love real moments.  We love black and white photos.  We love candid.  We love kids just being kids.  We want photos of the chaos, and prefer them to formals, actually.  Oh, and you can pick the best photos and we’ll just take those ones.” Any photographers out there might be thinking I’m describing an […]

Fierro Extended Family Shoot | Vancouver Family Photographer

Mar 30 / 2015

This weekend I got to meet the truly awesome Fierro family.  Their kids are some of my favourite ages to work with (for teaching piano and for photography) as they have so much personality but aren’t “too cool” for my silliness yet!  And oh yes, there was much silliness to be had! I spent most of […]

Fierro Family Fun – Vancouver Family Photographer

Mar 02 / 2015

This weekend I had an evening date with little Samuel and his wonderful family.  We met down by the water just before dinner to go exploring in the park.  Samuel proved to be very interested in all the kids, dogs, and activities surrounding us, but not so interested in the camera.  Despite his fascination with everyone […]

Little Sam – Coquitlam Family Photography

Dec 31 / 2014

Once upon a time two people met, fell in love, and became Mr. & Mrs. Maksymchuk. These two people, in turn, created two more beautiful people – their daughters.  The youngest daughter grew up and became a Snair and followed suit with two sons of her own. And of course, we can’t be playing with off-camera […]

Dec 09 / 2014

Mornings and I don’t have a good relationship with each other.  We endure each other at a ridiculously early hour every Monday through Friday.  (No one should get up with a 5 on the left-hand side of the clock).  However, come Saturday and Sunday, we don’t co-exist.  Thus, when my family mini shoot was rained […]

Robinson Family Mini Session

Oct 23 / 2014

This past weekend, I had the privilege of capturing the Lauwers’ family photos.  As it got closer to the end of little W’s nap time, we kept a wary eye on the skies.  Thankfully, while it remained overcast, the rains were held at bay until we had just wrapped up the shoot! This cute little […]

Lauwers Family Shoot

Oct 08 / 2013

On Friday, my husband and I got to do our first “official” shoot together since deciding we are going to start our own little photo / video company in the new year.  My good friend, Tara, (brown glasses, fifth picture below) hired Nick and I to capture her family.  She has also given me permission […]
