Alice is 3!

Last year I photographed Alice for her 2nd birthday and we continued the tradition with a little shoot today, and to make it more special we got to add her little sister to the mix this year! It was crazy smokey out this morning but I thought it added a little magic to the gardens at HCP. We explored every little corner of the gardens to find all the little beautiful little spots and find all the creatures and flowers we could.

Amber + Ryan + a baby on the way

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!

Fun in the rain!

The weather here has been crazy lately and yesterday was a prime example. I met my friend Jena and her family to do some photos for their Grandma and it was a downpour! As soon as we moved locations to somewhere with some cover the sun came out, and then it rained some more and of course was beautiful as soon as we were done!

I've gotten to know most of this clan over the last few years so it was a treat to photograph them, and they sure made my job easy. They even assemble in a photogenic way. ;) The last few photos of the wagon are actually a recreation from when these guys were just kids!

Itty Bitty Fairy Hannah!

My second model yesterday was tiny little Hannah! She is adorable and just so tiny and cuddly. She was remarkably patient with me for her age and even gave a smile or two. I love getting to photograph newborns and young babies in nature!

Bianca & Fred get married!

This weekend I was overjoyed to take a little trip up to Comox to photograph the wedding of Bianca and Fred. They got married at The Filberg Gardens which was a magical location with lots of beautiful little corners to photograph. It was a lovely day and it was full of some great family and friends, some super adorable children and a lot of love.

Here is a sneak peek of some of my favorite moments of the day. I'll probably post more over the next few days!
