International Angelman day |ABBOTSFORD PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER

thank-you-iad2015-01-15_0022Today if you didn’t know is the Annual International Angelman day. What other session to post today then this near & dear to me family who has their very own angel, and she really did steal the show this whole session. I have always known this family as full of very beautiful and strong woman. It took a pretty darn great guy to snag one of these ladies up and I think they all love him dearly. So with the family a little fuller they decided to come in while Rachel was in town from NY to get some updated family pictures I think it is a beautiful group of images for mom to hang in the house:)2015-01-15_00202015-01-15_00192015-01-15_00182015-01-15_00212015-01-15_00162015-01-15_0017

Its a Boy! |ABBOTSFORD NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

2015-01-17_0022I don’t know how I got it in my head but somewhere along her pregnancy I decided a girl. Julia was expecting a girl. I was so sure that I had thought she had told me, as if she knew. But in our conversations she had assured me this never happened she did not in fact know what gender baby #2 was. I am never one to get a feeling of what peoples babies will be, never as a matter of fact if I do guess, you most likely will be having the opposite because I am always wrong. And at last here it is folks a big beautiful baby boy! By Big and beautiful I mean it. Baby Spencer was a whole 10lbs. So squishy and rolly polly I love it! I have four beautiful babies but have never a rolley baby goodness it is seriously to cute I can’t handle it!!!2015-01-17_0003 2015-01-17_0001 2015-01-17_0002 2015-01-17_0004 2015-01-17_0005 2015-01-17_0006 2015-01-17_0007 2015-01-17_0008 2015-01-17_0009 2015-01-17_0010 2015-01-17_0011 2015-01-17_0012 2015-01-17_0013 2015-01-17_0014 2015-01-17_0015 2015-01-17_0016 2015-01-17_0017 2015-01-17_0018 2015-01-17_0020 2015-01-17_0021 2015-01-17_0019 2015-01-17_0023 2015-01-17_0024 2015-01-17_0025

Twice as Nice | ABBOTSFORD NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

2015-01-15_0008 Baby S & Baby C are as cute as they come. Newborn photography is sometimes challenging however twins defiantly makes you step up your game:) These two were the typical twin pair with the opposite sleepy times but in the end we got them in sync and it was perfection. I loved connecting with this new multiple family and hear their stories, finding out, pregnancy and labour. All brought back very clear not to long ago memories that I was able to relate. I think these two are just beyond precious and am happy to share these images with you:)2015-01-15_00022015-01-15_00012015-01-15_00032015-01-15_00042015-01-15_00052015-01-15_0015 2015-01-15_00072015-01-15_00102015-01-15_00092015-01-15_00132015-01-15_0012

The Perfect Addition | ABBOTSFORD NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

2015-01-12_0026I have had the pleasure of taking all of these beautiful children’s maternity photos and I so so in love with these pictures. I was so honoured to get to meet baby Grey even before he was baby grey. He was just perfect in every way. And I truly mean it. With a striking resemblance to his siblings he is a beautiful baby and I can wait for more snuggles!

The Girls Turned One

2015-01-10_0013Last month we celebrated our babies. They turned one! Our baby girls turned one. I catch myself saying this statement still, a month later. I think maybe it’s because we survived it, and I am proud we made it through a rough, busy crazy year. Maybe because it’s the last of our babies no longer babies and I mourn that. We now have toddlers! ( a lot of them ) Maybe because just like that what feels like a blink of an eye, the last year has passed. For what ever reason I do not think I will ever forget our village that has come forward and have supported our family adjust and build the stones to support us and help us when days were rough and long.  Who helped celebrate our small victories and the big ones. Four kids 3yrs old and under was hard.  So to the friends who stayed friends with me even though I drive a mini Van Cheers!:) xoxoxo

A little bit of our year:)

The Rempels | Abbotsford family photography

I met Alissa and Tim as their wedding photographer and was so happy to be able to reconnect with this Abbotsford family. Knowing their bambino was a few months old I was happy to have them in the studio for some family photos just in time for the holidays. If any family deserves it, it is this one. More on that here. I was happy to meet their little guy he is such a cutie. I love this whole session of photos but here are a few of my favorites.

A little Bob Dylan action | VANCOUVER ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER

Well I would be lying if I said I was surprised when I heard that these two dear friends announced their engagement. These two were meant to be, and am so excited to capture their big day this summer. I was so excited to work with these two, they are both super creative (actually Fiona is the brains behind my logo design and first website) and willing to put up with my crazy:) Fiona even brought “a few” ideas to the table as well.But I believe it was the groom to be who decided to have a Bob Dylan copycat album cover LOVE! I also love the computer and headphone shots, it truly is them to a tee as Scott works with all the computer stuff I can even grasp or wrap my head around and fiona is a great just for fun DJ, but is actually really good. xoxo

Baby T | ABBOTSFORD NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER

If I could plan the most perfect newborn session this would be it.  I was able to reconnect with past clients whose wedding I had shot a few years back.  The little Mr was amazing and literally slept the whole visit until the very end and I finally was able to get glimps of his baby blues.  abbotsford-newborn-photographer Abbotsford-newborn-photographer abbotsford-newborn-photographer abbotsford-newborn-photographer abbotsford-newborn-photographer abbotsford-newborn-photographer
