Lighthouse Park | West Van Family Photographer

photocrati galleryLighthouse Park | West Van Family Photographer

This shoot has been a long time coming….about a year I think.  🙂  But so worth the wait – super adorable kids, fun parents and a Dad tricked into being in the pictures!  That’s all you need folks!

Anyways, we met at Lighthouse park in West Vancouver and were lucky enough to have a gorgeous day.  The trails were super pretty and seeing the Lighthouse is always a bit magical.  We didn’t do many posed pictures but captured the fun, warm, lovingness of this family playing together.  Even the little guy who was super shy at first warmed up enough to smile and hold my hand – heartbreaker 🙂

His sister loved getting her picture taken and had lots of great ideas for them – love littles who collaborate…makes my job super easy.

Enjoy these images, I sure loved capturing them.  Thanks for picking me to be your photographer 🙂

Ambleside Family Pictures

I always have a great photographing this lovely family.  I first met them at Gymboree when Aiden was just a year old…since then I have photographed them at least once a year.  A few years later along came Damien, who is now 3!  I feel a bit old 😉  Aiden and Damien are super cute and always are well behaved and listen – yay!  They make my job super fun & easy.  Their parents are super easy going too and always have great ideas for images.  Arieanna does super cool things with the images, like art collages, Christmas cards and calendars.  She also uses some of them on her blog, Active Mama.  A great resource for all you North Shore Mamas 🙂

This shoot we met at Ambleside Beach in West Van to do their family pictures.  A cool spot is over by the train bridge – it adds a neat industrial feel to the images as well as giving the option of pretty scenery images too.  We lucked out and got most of the shoot in prior to the torrential rain fall 🙂

Thanks for having me capture your family!

Backlit family Session

I love sessions with this family – I have been taking their pictures since little Oliver was a newborn.  I love being able to capture a family as they grown and change, it is such a compliment to be trusted to be the one to save these memories for them.  Oliver was the chattiest I have ever seen him and wanted to run and play and giggle…ok, twist my arm.  His happiness shine through these images, just as how much he is loved does. Christine and Will obviously take such joy in him…and who wouldn’t.  He is such a beauty.  We met at a special little spot outside of town that I love to shoot at.  (Thanks Beth & Rochelle for finding it with me)  It is perfect light morning or evening and the surroundings cannot be beat.  The Pacific, a slow river, train bridge, mountains and wild life – yes pls!! We met at about 9am and the sun was just cresting over the mountains, a great time for me as I really like to backlight my images….you may have noticed a few backlit images if you’ve looked at my blog before 🙂  Thanks for checking out this fun session!

Family Pictures in Stanley Park

I was so excited to meet the Ball family and capture their family in pictures.  Their family is so gorgeous, not only in style and looks but they’re so genuine and warm that you can’t help but feel happy in their presence. The four boys are super cute and charming…..Moms lock up your daughters 😉 and were a blast to shoot.  We managed to photograph them both as they are and a few posed ones too.  I love the way they played together and threw the rugby ball around with their parents.  It is so true that a family that plays together stays together.  We were lucky to have such a beautiful day and glorious sunset and the light just glows around them in the pictures.  We even were able to capture a few of the super moon that night.  Sessions like this feed my creativity.  Thank you guys for picking me 🙂

West Vancouver Photographer

I think I have the best job in the world..I am a professional photographer. I get to generally make my own schedule, I meet amazing people and create and capture their memories, I love what I do and it all takes place in this gorgeous piece of earth that we live in.  I never lose sight of this and feel gratitude for it daily but sometime I make an image that really, really has all that in it.  It has my love of my job, my creativeness, the beauty of BC and a little magic.  This particular image is even more special to me because it is of my daughter and her best little buddy.  It captured them in a moment of pure bliss, a moment where their little 5 year old minds could barely absorb the beauty around them and it captures them being them.  Life unscripted.  I like to shoot like this anyways, but this was totally them.  Sticking their feet in the cold river, splashing and playing and being silly, forgetting that I am watching them with my camera and just enjoying themselves.  I think these moments are so rare and even more rare is to have an image that we can hold and look back on and think, that was a wonderful day.  I will be printing this picture for both of them and I will hang it on my little girl’s wall so she can see the magic in her and all around her everyday.  I am seriously grateful that I can give her this and to other families too.  Thank you to all my wonderful clients who trust me to capture their magic.
