Cuteness overload with the K family! I absolutely loved spending time with them on a beautiful summery evening. Seeing how the siblings so sweetly love and care for each other, how they interact with each other and their parents, and how unique each one is in their family. They are a truly wonderful, tightknit family who made the session full of joy and laughter! xo
These two beautiful sisters were preparing for a vacation back to Ireland to celebrate their Granny's 90th birthday and thought it would be wonderful to have some photos of them and their beautiful children to take back home to share with their loved ones. We had such fun playing in the creek - a definite hit with the children! I loved seeing the joy shared between sisters and cousins - and hearing their amazing Irish accents! Thank you for a beautiful afternoon with your sweet, sweet, sweet children xoxo
My sweet friend had her mama visiting and it was such a special evening getting to meet her and witnessing the love the boys' Gaga has for them all. Her gentle, loving and nurturing interactions with her daughter and fun-loving grandsons was so precious. It was a perfect mix of boys being boys and the sweetness of mom-daunter hugs. Thank you K family! Love you guys xo
"My grandma has ears that listen,
arms that always hold,
a love that's never ending,
and a heart of gold!"
It was such a delight getting to photograph the K family again. Their two darling girls were full of enthusiasm despite the cool, windy, freshly-rained weather. A treehouse, fairy garden, and a playground made for a perfect location for them all to have some fun!
"May you touch dragonflies and stars,
dance with fairies and talk to the moon.
May you grow up with love and gracious hearts,
and people that care."
It was a wonderful day photographing the M family to celebrate their beautiful mother and grandma. Her love for her family was palpable through the smiles, how her eyes lit up watching them, and her caring touch. It was such a joy spending time with them all! xo
a circle of strength, founded on faith,
joined in love, kept by God."
The D family was so full of joy and silliness! I've been blessed to be able to photograph the maternity sessions of all three of their beautiful children! Thank you for having me along again D family - you guys are always a blast!

I have such an appreciation for grandparents who do anything to be there for their children and grandchildren. I loved having Adrienne's grandma as part of her newborn session - not intentionally - but so naturally and humbly caring for the family, just as I am sure she is when there isn't this extra person photographing in the house.
Baby Adrienne arrived a little earlier than expected, but her grandma, was miles away, praying for her safe arrival, and finding flights in as soon as possible. These precious moments make my heart joyful for these everyday blessings that mothers and grandmothers are - sacrificial, loving unconditionally, and willing to do whatever they can to be there when their children need them most. I loved meeting you and getting to spend some time with you Reba! xo
This sweet family welcomed their beautiful daughter and baby sister a few days earlier than expected. She was so good for the entire session and is clearly so very loved. Her grandma was visiting from afar which I know was such a wonderful blessing to the whole family - grandma help and love is truly priceless! I am excited to put together a little blog post on that too. For now here is sweet Adrienne being doted on by her stunning mom, besotted dad, and playful big brother!
Emma has such a gentle, calm and caring disposition. She's an amazing big sister as one can clearly see, and has a beautiful heart. Her mom was beaming with joy as we ventured into the quiet wooded area to photograph her lovely daughter in a gorgeous dress. It was a joy spending time with you all - and yay for little brothers who love having photographs taken with their favourite big sister! xo
We were initially going to plan a Spring photo session but the days, weeks and months got busy. Spring came and went, Summer came and went and as Fall leaves started appearing I was so happy we were happy to finally find a time that worked for the Meszaros family to have their family photo session. Dashing straight from a soccer party, they made it to a favourite new spot to catch the last few minutes of sunlight on a beautifully warm evening. We adventured as much as we could and made sure to leave some time to explore and just be (and perhaps get a little wet) before the sun was down. Thank you for cutting your soccer party short, for braving the sunny yet crisp evening and for being such an amazing family to photograph! xo, Liesel
It was such a blessing to be present as Aaron and Chanelle were married under the beautiful trees of Peace Arch Provincial Park, surrounded by the love and excitement of their families and friends. The soft pink, creamy colours set the tone for a beautifully romantic wedding day. Every detail was made with love.
The celebration just oozed love and adoration for Aaron and Chanelle, with many family and friends traveling from out of province to be a part of their special day. There is no doubt for the love they share. It was evident in the grand ceremony but also in all the small details: how he leads her, how she looks at him, how he rubs her shoulder, and she slips her hands in his ... their warm, loving embraces continued through the day.
It was a beautiful day, full of raw emotions from not only Aaron and Chanelle, but also their parents, siblings, bridal party and loved ones. There were lots of soft, tender moments but also plenty of laughter and dancing. Thank you again for honour of capturing these moments for you.
