Jonathan + Lexi | Family

Lexi contacted me a short while ago about family photos and I was very excited for the opportunity. It had been pouring rain all week, so when Saturday rolled around the sun was shining, I immediately thought of Lexi! Well, it just so happened that Lexi was thinking of me. She emailed me Saturday morning and asked if we could shoot today rather than next week. I was thrilled my schedule was open and I called her up and booked her for that afternoon.

Ocean Shores

Last weekend my family and I went down to Ocean Shores, Washington for a family discipleship conference. The conference center was literally right across the street from the ocean and so we took advantage of the beautiful sunny weather and spent a couple afternoons at the beach. Every time I go to the ocean, which is very rare, I’m always amazed at how its beauty can completely capture me. I literally can’t take my eyes off the waves and I take deep breath after deep breath to tryfull post »

Danley | Newborn

This little guy is SO CUTE! I had just done Marcel + Dianne’s maternity shoot just two weeks before this little man made his arrival – and I’m so excited he’s here now and I can snuggle him! Once again, this was a DREAM to shoot. Danley was as content as could be and was quite curious at the clicking sound of my camera. It is so sweet to see Levin as a big brother now – he’s so gentle with Danley, and more than willing to kiss him over and over again. He madefull post »

The Toews | Family

The Toews family are dear and sweet friends of my family’s and we had so much fun at this shoot. They had requested to shoot at the Blue Heron Reserve, so I went exploring earlier that day. I found this amazing area where the light would be perfect and this old rustic building right across the path. It was SUCH a beautiful night for a shoot and I was super excited to play with some sunlight. I had laughingly said to Mr. Toews before we started, “Family shoots usually bring out whofull post »

Marcel + Dianne | Maternity

Marcel + Dianne far exceeded any photographer’s dream with this photoshoot. Dianne is absolutely gorgeous inside and out and Marcel + Levin are quite the dudes. They were super relaxed and we enjoyed every minute. We started out at Marcel’s parents property to grab some shots with Levin. After about an hour of some fun shooting, we left Levin with grandparents and headed off to Timmies for a quick ice cap break. 🙂 I had been driving around Chilliwack earlier in the day in search offull post »

Matt + Lizzi Stam | Wedding

I had the wonderful privilege of second shooting this wedding for Larissa from Lavender Pier Photography (check out her work!) again. We had so much fun together and I so enjoy weddings! We headed off to the bride’s house first where Lizzi and all the girls were getting ready. I must say, I was quite surprised at how relaxed everyone was, it was SO NICE to see! The dads and kids were watching the soccer game in the livingroom, the flower girls were running around with fruit juice onfull post »

Luke’s Graduation | Personal

So it’s kinda hard to believe my baby brother is graduated from high school now! Like, where did the years go? Seems like yesterday we were sitting in our “classroom” off the kitchen – seated at our desks, pencils in hands, minds….well maybe not always on school, but hey, WE GRADUATED! So obviously somewhere in those 12 years of homeschooling we learned, retained, passed, and have finished! So I don’t usually go rambling on here on the blog, telling storiesfull post »

Oregon | Reminiscing

This has to be one of my favourite places in the world. We vacationed here for a few days a couple summers ago – Bandon, Oregon – and I will never forget how the ocean’s beauty captured my heart. The cry of a seagull as it soars above you eyeing for crabs | the music of crashing waves as the water hits the sand and then draws back to endlessness | the soft wind that catches your hair causing it to ripple like the ocean | the warm sand that sinks between your toes and managesfull post »
