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 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:)

Its my wedding | ABBOTSFORD-WEDDING-FAIR

 

Well Its been a week of crazy following the Fraser Valleys largest wedding fair.  This year was a great showing by all vendors.  The booths looked great and there were some amazing people to meet and see again.  It was great getting to chat with all the newly engaged (and some long-term engagement ) ladies.  I love listening to all the crazy awesome proposals and big day plans.  It was a pleasure to meet so many soon to be brides and had an amazing weekend witnessing an actual wedding! I got my fashion fix at the fashion show with some stunning dresses by Ivory Bridal from their new store in Fort Langley.  And saw some beautifully decorated tables from my neighbour booth Angel Kisses decor abbotsford-wedding-fairAbbotsford-wedding fair1Abbotsford-wedding-fair2

Something a little different | ABBOTSFORD PHOTOGRAPHER

This is the second year I was able to meet up with this family for a family photo session.  And just my luck they were wanting something a little different.  With a family of boys what better idea then picking one of their favorite spots to incorporate.  These guys were great and up for everything and even brought some ideas of their own.Collages244 Collages249 Roberts Family4 Roberts Family3 Roberts Family2 Roberts Family1 Roberts Family
