Emmalynn

There is nothing more exciting than being able to watch families grow and to be there to capture it! I did Zandre’s newborn photos a couple years ago and it was one of my first shoots (you can see them here). It was such a treat to come back and capture his beautiful little sister, Emmalynn on the same bed that I did his photos. Being able to spend time with Zandre again was so special and he kept me smiling as he showed me around his adorable bedroom. Thanks Willemijn for inviting mefull post »

Jonathan + Lexi

When Lexi contacted me interested in another family session I was SO excited! I loved meeting this family last fall and doing their photos – the kids were just the sweetest ever and Jonathan + Lexi were a joy to work with! We wanted to capture some summer loveliness and with all this amazing sun we’ve been having, it wasn’t difficult to find an evening to head out for some photos! The kids were all a bit taller, Annika’s hair was longer, the baby wasn’t a babyfull post »

A Day in the Life

A couple weeks ago I went to babysit Gavin + Blythe while Lyndon was at school and Carina took Airyn shopping for her birthday. I brought my camera along planning to take a couple photos throughout the day, hoping to capture some cute moments. As soon as I starting shooting, I thought it’d be fun to shoot the entire day and try and capture a typical day at the Les house when I’m there. Capturing breakfast time, nap time, play time, snack time, and snuggle time along with some set upfull post »

Eaton Lake

This has probably been my favourite hike so far! We took the whole day off so we could take our time getting to the top. 4 hours up and 2.5 hours down with a few hours to rest and take in the view once we got there. It was simply BREATHTAKING! The stunning view of the lake with the clouds opening up and the sun glistening on the water was more beautiful than I had imagined. Kirtus brought his fishing rod and Luke go-proed under the water the slimy things biting at his bate. Hopefully itfull post »

evan

Having done maternity photos only three days before Evan’s birth, I was quite excited to meeting this little fella and I was beyond thrilled when Ineke contacted me for newborn photos! She texted me “a boy with lots a black hair…We named him Evan.” And yup, my heart melted right there (ridiculous, i know!) and I couldn’t wait to snuggle him. 🙂 If you know me at all, you know I’m terribly-wonderfully-over-the-top crazy about babies and so to think I couldfull post »

Sun Peaks

So this was our family’s first winter skiing, and it was PRETTY AWESOME! I’m so looking forward to next winter when the conditions will hopefully be better than this year. We went up to Sun Peaks with dear friends of ours and had so much fun. The first night we got a little sprinkle of snow, so waking up to everything white and the sun shining was simply break taking. The little house we stayed in had such character gave that perfect cozy feeling. After skiing all day, being able tofull post »

Year in Review // 2014

This has been an exciting year! My business really launched and I was blessed with so many people who asked me to be their photographer. I was given so many opportunities to capture beautiful children, families, couples, and everyday life itself. I was inspired by what I could do, encouraged by all who I met, thankful for new friends, and am now excited for what lies ahead in 2015! Much thought and prayer has gone into this new year. It’s a time to start things fresh, to seek out newfull post »

Delaney + Olivia

Delaney and Olivia are two of the most beautiful little babies I’ve seen! They are only three weeks old and so tiny still. Kevin + Melanie were so kind and patient as we fed, changed, burped, and posed the babies. There were a few “she’s peeing!” moments that required a quick dive for a diaper and a change of clothes for mommy. 😉 It was all such fun and it was such a pleasure to capture these little beauties in their first few weeks of life.full post »

Jacalyn | Inspired Winter Shoot

This year as my photography business has grown, I have learned a lot about how much work and effort goes into making it a success. One of the biggest challenges I have faced has been how to attract clients who want me for my style of work and not just my price. It’s a difficult business to get into, with everyone thinking they are a photographer, whether that’s an ‘iphone photographer’, ‘digital camera photographer’, or someone who’s held an SLR and nowfull post »
