Happy Birthday Thomas!

I can't believe I never posted these because they are so beautiful and making me tear up.  We just celebrated this guy's First Birthday over the weekend and Caela just texted me to resend her the gallery.  Upon uploading, I fell in love with these photos in a whole new light.  It didn't seem that long ago, and in the grand scheme of things a year really isn't that long ago, but time is cruel and doesn't stop or wait.  Second by second, moments come and go like a flash in the pan and suddenly those endless first days of becoming a mother are a distant memory (... did that really happen?) and your little one has grown exponentially into an entirely different human being.  Many of my close friends are those whom I would have never expected to be, this Mama included.  She was 17 when I met her and when she hired me.  I can't believe it's been almost 10 years that have passed and that she has been there throughout my 3 pregnancies and spoiled my kids with gifts;  Moses and Chloe were in her wedding party and in this past year it was my turn to witness her struggles and successes as she passed through the threshold into motherhood.

You guys have done an incredible job this year and I am so proud of you and so grateful to have you in my life.  Congratulations on making it through the first year!

Happy Birthday Toto!


Hello Ruby!

Ruby has arrived! Ruby has arrived!  

I've been impatiently waiting to meet this sweet girl since Joon first announced they were pregnant again and she is finally HERE!!!  I've got this soft spot for Joon.  I like who I am when I am in her company, whether we are chilling with our kids or partying it up at a girls' night.  She brings out that part of me that makes me feel like we should have been friends 10 years ago.  And now her little girl is here and I get to see her grow up from brand newness and see all the joy (and terror and exhaustion, but mostly joy...) Ruby brings to their family.  

We are set for a session in their new home in the next month or so, but I made sure to capture a few goodies in their current place of Ruby in all her newborn glory...

Love you babe



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!
