This Summer has been filled with so many amazing evenings just like this one. I am feeling pretty lucky and very excited for August. My favourite month of the entire year to shoot in. The evening light has this stunning shade of amber and begins to arrive just a little bit earlier which is great for families with little ones and this Vancouver Family Beach Photographer! I am looking forward to all the family shoots coming up this month!

This is the second time I have had the pleasure of photographing this family as they celebrate their daughter turning another year older. Last year we played at the park and celebrated the fact that she was turning two. This year we headed to the beach to do it all over again.

We played with balloons, ran, chased, tossed, swung and snuggled. Then we made our way to the water to dig in the sand and play in the water. A perfect way to spend one of these gorgeous and fleeting Vancouver Summer evenings!

Light is one of the most important elements of photographs. It has the magical power to change the whole look and feel in an instant. I know I mention it all the time, but I love on-location newborn sessions in the comfort of your home. I love how each session is unique and full of elements that reflect each family. I also love the challenge of finding beautiful light in each home I have the pleasure of working in. Not to worry there is always good light.

This particular newborn session was held in a stunning loft in Gastown. A beautiful space with brick walls and so full of history. The challenge was that the space only had three windows. They were large windows and we used them to their full extent but none of the other rooms had windows. It’s a good reminder that you do not need a lot of space in your home to hold your newborn session at home. Sometimes the smallest spaces in can have the prettiest light.Vancouver_Newborn_PhotographyVancouver Newborn Location PhotographerVancouver Newborn Location PhotographyVancouver Newborn Location Photography_02

It feels like just yesterday that this little guy was a wee little newborn. He has grown and changed so much in a few short months. Oh and he has also gotten a lot faster! Every time we placed him down he was off crawling and top speed. I love the series of images of him moving from sitting into the crawling position for this very reason!

Maxaroo was the landslide winner of the Haley Lorraine Photography 2013 Image of the Year contest. I caught up with his family at Granville Island for some fun and colourful family images to mark this stage. Can’t wait to do it again soon!

We started this session at home. Home is one of my favourite spots to meet so we can go over any last minute wardrobe questions as well as capture a few images in your personal space. Children tend to be more comfortable at home and it is a great way for everyone to warm up and get to know each other. I could make a whole separate blog post with images from in their home (and I may just do that :)) but for now I will share a few favourites.

I LOVE a field full of wildflowers in the beautiful evening light. I was happy to arrive at one of my favorite locations to find the wild flower field full of lupins and butter cups. These beauties bloom for such a short while so it felt like the stars had aligned for this little cuties first year portrait session.

Photography is such a great way to celebrate the milestone of your baby turning one. It is always an honour to capture a families love for their little one who is quickly getting bigger and more independent each day. First steps, big smiles and the way they snuggle in so tight. They are getting bigger but really they are still that little baby at heart.

Can’t believe it’s July and Fall will be here before you know it! I have a few newborn spots left and only a handful of weekend spots left for family sessions in October/November. I will also be holding Free Holiday Minis this year (when booking a 2015 session) so stay tuned for more information soon!

World cup fever is starting to take hold. In my household this has translated into a new game to play on the trampoline called Bouncy Soccer. Sometimes there is one ball and sometimes there are many. The rules seem to be ever changing but the fun is had by many. My youngest is a huge fan. I think he could play this game all day long!

This is the fourth installment in my personal project for 2014. Five minutes with us (see previous post here, here and here).

The object of this exercise was to take my super energetic two year old outside and capture some of his spunk and enthusiasm for this new game. He’s a silly little guy and I love that these images capture that playfulness and his vitality in typical two year old fashion. Just a few moments that I want to remember with my little man…
