Musings from the photographer

Coming soon to a studio near you...

...all fall / winter / Christmas minis! Bookings will open in the next few weeks. Please stay tuned to my site for further information - booking links will appear under the "Seasonal Events" tab. New this year are indoor Halloween and Christmas minis with gorgeous new sets and backdrops! I'm adding a specially themed holiday mini session complete with Christmas trees in every colour of the rainbow, and an outdoor rustic holiday family mini day - in a covered location. My Christmas minis will be offered in two separate date windows - in November, and then again as rush minis in mid-December for those last-minute Christmas gift ideas. ...and this mainstay, my favourite backdrop, will certa


I've started adding photos of newborns curled up in mom's - or dad's - hands to a session when parents request them. These were some of my own favourites from my older son's newborn session nearly six years ago, and there's nothing like the poignancy of seeing the baby in a parent's hands to realize just how small they really were. As my nearly six-year-old sleeps aside me - yes, he still prefers to cuddle with mom - all I can say is that they grow up in the blink of an eye. While I wouldn't trade any moment with the boy he's become, I very much miss his sweet newborn cuddles, the wisps of hair on his sweet-smelling head. A majority of my galleries are done in both colour and black & white

Another sweet newborn girl

Baby C came to my studio earlier this week. Like baby A a few weeks earlier, I had had the pleasure of capturing C's mother's maternity images a few weeks earlier. It was wonderful welcoming them back into the studio! With a run of boys in the extended family, we decided to take advantage of pink, sparkles and hair bows for this family. Baby C was such fun - truly a delight. Welcome to the world, Miss C.

Sweet newborn girl

Earlier in the spring, I had the pleasure of capturing baby A's mom's maternity session. As soon as the little one was born, we scheduled her newborn session as well. So honoured to work with this beautiful family twice in a matter of months! Baby A was wide awake and as alert as could be during our first session, so we decided to do a second one a few days later. She slept like...well, a baby...and between the two sessions, we captured some beautiful moments. Welcome to the world, sweet baby A. You have a wonderful family and are much loved. Interested in your own newborn session? All of these props, outfits, blankets and backdrops are available to my newborn clients. I offer two diff

Two cake smashes and a mini portrait

Despite our sunshine outdoors, I've had a steady number of indoor sessions - cake smashes, portrait sessions and seasonal holiday minis - passing through my studio doors. Two of my cake smashes are joined here by a mini portrait session. Take a close look at the sweet girl in purple smashing her cake. Big brother ended up joining in to celebrate all things cake, and the birthday girl just was not certain how she felt about it. Proof that you never know what to expect with a cake smash!

May family sessions

A wonderful set of clients joined me for a plethora of family sessions this past May. Some new, many thankful for all of my beautiful clients! Here are some highlights from a few of my sessions in the warm spring sunshine.

Canada Day Minis

I corralled the two little men in the studio this morning for some fun with maple leaves and with my newest backdrop. Interested in a Canada Day mini? Message me at or 604-781-6477. I'm holding them June 13 and 15, as well as on-demand, in my Ladner studio. Sessions are 15 minutes in length and include a full edited preview gallery and your favourite 5 images via high resolution digital download for $75 + GST. Happy Canada Day!

Two new minis!

I'm thrilled to announce two new mini sessions, just in time for summer! Berry-picking minis will be held in the strawberry fields of beautiful Emma Lea Farms in conjunction with their seasonal summertime opening this Thursday, June 7 (5-7 PM). Choose from a 15-min child mini perfect for 1-2 children or a 20-min family mini for the entire family. It's a great way to capture the entire family having lots of berry fun in the summertime sun! (Personal stock photos - the berry photos will come later this week.) Looking for something a bit more...patriotic? June 13 and 15 are reserved for in-studio Canada Day mini sessions. These are 15-minute sessions geared for the kids, and lots of patriot
