Deer Lake Park || Vancouver Family Photographer

When you walk into this families home you see something that is becoming a rarity these days. Printed and framed family portraits adorn almost all the walls. It is obvious that this family values having printed memories of their loved ones around them.
One of these Moms is acutely aware of the importance of capturing family moments. “My Mum passed away two days before our son's 1st birthday, so it was important to us to have as many pictures of our family as possible."
We met at Deer Lake Park for the family session to celebrate their son’s 1st birthday.
She wore her Mother’s pearls and her partner wore her Father’s ring.

Our Growing Family || Vancouver Family Photographer

I've been photographing this family since their eldest was 3 months old and her parents wanted similar portraits of their little guy on his 3 month birthday.
Big sister greeted me at the front door with a smile and a warm hug that totally melted my heart.
She has a wicked iTunes dance mix that we listened and danced to while creating these portraits together.
The beautiful soft north facing window light was perfect for these intimate family portraits in my clients new home.

The Yules || Vancouver Family Photographer

I have been photographing this fun family since their eldest was a baby.
I am sad they are leaving Vancouver to move to Ontario. I'm so happy for them though, as they will finally own their own home. Owning a home is becoming an unrealized dream for a lot of Vancouver families and folks are leaving the city to follow their dream.
I wish this sweet family a wonderful new life and adventure and I hope we see each other again.

Fur Baby || Vancouver Family Photographer

Anyone who has a fur baby knows they are part of the family. So of course Shirley the Dog had to be included in the maternity session portraits. This family choose to purchase a gallery wall and the last portrait with her best furry faced friend hangs on the wall above her bed.
Pro Tip: hide doggie treats in clothing to get their full attention.

It's ALL about the Fun || Vancouver Family Photographer

He is shy and doesn't feel comfortable making eye contact with people he doesn't know and trust.
I would have to say having that challenge made me slow down, speak gently and let him lead the way, and at the very end of the session, he did gift us a smile right into the camera.
