WELCOME LOGAN!

I thoroughly enjoyed the hell out of this Newborn Session although it really makes my heart ache that I did not my own done when Moses + Chloe were the same age.  SIGH.  I first met Stephanie, Dylan, and Jack last Summer for a Beach Session, gifted to them by my oldtimey LFA classmate, Danielle.  I swear the world gets smaller and my circles get tighter as I get older.  9 months later, young Jack is walking, talking, jumping and kissing his teeny tiny brother Logan.  I am so in love with how this session turned out and I am excited for them to look back in 8 years and recall what these early days were like. 

Congratulations once again on your newest addition and a huge thank you for allowing me to help tell your family's story

In Bloom: School House Farm

It is mid-May and these sunny days are still far and few between.  Like a sunflower, I find myself following and reaching out to absorb the sun's warmth whenever we get a sunny day or even a few peeks of sun in and out of these moody weather spells.  It's been insufferable, but despite the sun's absence, Spring has still managed to bring about life and colour to cheer us all up.  School House Farm has been toiling to get new things growing for the local community and anyone venturing from beyond South Delta.  Beautifully colored eggs from happy roaming chickens are gathered and washed lovingly for the regulars.  Emily's first test of florals were such a hit, I think everyone is already dancing around for when she grows an army for next Spring.  Fields are being tilled and herbs and veggies are sprouting in their newly built greenhouses.  Easter's chicks have doubled in size and will be joining the rest of the gang soon enough.  So much life and beauty in this wide open space, the future holds much for this little gem. 

The Ladner Village Market is just around the corner.  Looking forward to see these guys reap what they sow this coming Summer.

 


come as you are | mother's day mini sessions 2017

recognizing + honouring
the everyday beauty of motherhood

no need for make up, dressing up
or cleaning up the house

just you, as you are
with the ones who call you Mom

COME AS YOU ARE single.jpg

This Mother's Day, my heart would like to honour + celebrate the truth of where you are at, right now, in your life as a Mother:

YOU, in your home, going through a few of your everyday routines with your little ones.

Nothing posed and nothing to hide, just the real moments: from the overwhelming mess + impressive tantrums to the intimate snuggles + whispered I Love Yous.  Let's document your Motherhood in all of its chaos and beautiful imperfections for you and your kids (and their kids...) to hold close, relive, and share for many years to come.

We are beautiful and we deserve to be remembered!

Shai + Francesca

On a hilltop overlooking the North Shore mountains, this tiny short and sweet wedding was perfection in every way.  The big celebration will be held in Israel over the summer, but this intimate circle of family and friends held in our West Coast rainforest surrounded by lush thundering mountains boasts its own beauty.  Francesca is one of three sisters to my good friend Kristina whom I have become closer with over the last year.  It is always a treat and an honour to meet the extended family of my friends, to see their roots and their family dynamic which ultimately helped mould them into the person you love so much today.  Tiny weddings are my thing and this couldn't have been more perfect!

Congratulations Shai + Francesca!


Family Feels

A large part of my job satisfaction is from my need to connect with others.  The majority of people I get to photograph are friends, acquatinaces or friends of friends, or families of friends.  I connected with Shanti through the sister of a fellow Emily Carr grad whom I haven't seen since graduation, but have kept in touch through social media.  I love to photograph families in their natural habitat, it's all about capturing their true relationship with one another, finding those moments of connection and bonding.  The years fly by and it is a gift to be able to look back and see our old selves and measure our growth, to recognize the familiar bond between siblings and nod at how nothing has changed or perhaps nudges us to give them a call and reconnect.
