S. Family | Derby Reach | Coquitlam Family Photographer

I think every photographer has an “ideal client”, or if they don’t, then I think they should because it tells you who you are as an artist and what you love to capture.  THIS family would be mine for so many reasons.  First, this mama has a heart for motherhood that mirrors my own.  I know some people view the early years as things to be survived, but they’re so much more than that to me, and to her.  I won’t go into it here, but I come from a background of extreme brokenness that gives me a passion for motherhood like I never dreamed.  I see this passion in her also and it inspires me.

That is just the start of why I loved shooting her little family so much.  I mean, for starters she has 2 boys and a girl and that’s pretty perfect in my books ;).  I kid!  Mostly…. But honestly, someone who values moments over poses, interaction over stiffness, and real life over Photoshop is someone who makes my heart sing.  That being said, Photoshop definitely has it’s place.  Like for example when you shoot a whole series of the kids playing and then notice days later that their dog was pooping in the background of it!!

But more than that, this mama and I have become friends and there is nothing more important in life than the relationships you forge.  Some are for a reason, some are for a season, and some are for a lifetime, but they all have value <3.  Anyway, that’s enough of my rambling here (and plus, I’m on a tight baby nap schedule and my online time is limited), so without further ado, here are some of my favourites from this mama’s gorgeous little family!

Hi! I’m Laura, a coffee-loving, outgoing introvert with a passion for motherhood and photography. This blog is an extension of who I am. I’m a mommy to three little boys, and I love to create and write. I’m also loud, tend to over share, and am a type-A personality in the extreme. I’m a little pensive and can be a lot sarcastic.  I believe that motherhood is something more than just to be survived! This is both a space where I share glimpses into my business and the photo shoots I do, and also my personal space to just write about whatever is on my heart. So grab a cup of coffee, come stay for a while and let’s get to know each other. 🙂
