Today I got the chance to snuggle an adorable little lady while I photographed her. Baby Summer is the daughter of my son’s teacher last year. It was such a treat to get a chance to meet her new baby and keep that connection with my own baby’s first teacher who helped nurture him. She was so sweet, and so was her big brother who I can tell is going to be such an amazing big brother and protector for her.
As horrible as this smoke is for our beautiful province I feel it makes the photos I've taken over the last few days a little magical. A few weeks ago I met one half of this lovely family on the beach for photos and today I got to meet the other half. It was a great family session despite the smoke and I got some great shots of everyone that showed their obvious connection and love for each other.
I am so excited that my beautiful friend Amber is expecting a baby girl this fall! Since she lives up island I don't get to see her as much as I'd like so this weekend we headed up for a visit and some photos of her adorable baby bump.
After some cozy photos around the house with Ryan and the cats (who were as uncooperative as cats usually are) we headed out to Air Force Beach to take some photos in the beautiful hazy light.
Amber and Ryan; I can't wait to meet your beautiful daughter and give her all the snuggles!

My good friend Natalie, who's older children are the same ages as mine, recently had the cutest little lady join the family. Today I was lucky enough to get to photograph her. She was a dream, sleeping and making cute faces for the photos, and I got adorable snuggles so it was an extra bonus!
I got to meet two of the happiest babies today at the beach. They were super cute and sweet while I photographed them with their parents and it was the most beautiful day to spend on a quiet, sunny beach.
Adorable Hudson is turning one in a few days and today we got the celebrations off early with a little cake smash! His mom made all the props and cake for his "Wild One" theme and it looked absolutely amazing. He was super cute dancing to the Wiggles and smiling during a little Facetime with Dad. Happy Birthday Hudson!
I have been very fortunate to have many former clients become friends over the years and Erica and her family are one of those I've been lucky enough to keep in my life. I first met Erica through a mutual friend when she hired me to photograph her wedding. And now I have gotten to not only document her growing family but be a part of their lives.
Today we had an excellent day at their house photographing their beautiful new daughter Hazel while our boys played together. And Hazel was a dream to photograph even though she was far too interested in me and my camera to sleep. And she looks so much like her brother did at that age!
Today baby Robert came by for a visit and a snuggle. He was a dream and he slept the whole visit. My favourite photo from the whole day is when older brother John was more interested in trains that snuggling his brother (my son was much the same at that age.)
A couple of days ago I was honoured to be able to capture so many beautiful Mother's with their children (or baby bumps) during a special Mother's Day event at Bellies In Bloom Maternity. I had so much fun, got flirted with by the cutest men under the age of one and really saw the true connection between so many children and their parents. It was a lovely evening, the Bellies In Bloom ladies were amazing hosts and we made a very special donation for the Victoria Pregnancy Centre.
Thanks to all the mothers out there for all that you do! Happy Mother's Day!
On Sunday I had the opportunity to do Fairy Mini's at the Wind and Willow Children's Fair. I had an absolute blast doing these! It was so cool to see almost all my dresses and props all set up in one area, and the best part was all the excited little fairies, elves and lost boys I met! They all took their fairy duties quite seriously and we made some pure magic!
Here are just a couple of the magical little people that crossed my path!
