Musings from the photographer

Family Session - the K family

October saw sunny weather. Not just sunshine, but perhaps the most gorgeous October on record, with sunny skies and warm temperatures straight through the month. I went to graduate school in California. I have to admit that as much as I love Vancouver, I would trade anything for California's weather. This past month reminded me of it! ...but I digress. With the beautifully sunny skies, it does become easy to assume that the weather will plan photo sessions around the midday sun and golden hour light. The K family was one such session. We planned for an early morning session in late October, intending to capture the morning golden light a few days before our fall time chang

Newborn Session with A

Aside from weddings, my newborn sessions are by far my lengthiest sessions. As such, it's a wonderful opportunity for me to get to know the new mom and chat about their world, their family, their new arrival. New parenthood is such a special time, and I treasure every discussion I have with all of my newborn clients. One of the questions I often ask parents during our sessions is whether they knew the gender of the little one prior to birth. Some say "yes," others say "no" - I always love hearing the story behind the gender surprise! ...which leads me to this amazing couple a few weeks ago. Mom and dad brought their beautiful baby girl to my studio, and I asked this question of

Newborn Session with W

I've had my fair share of girl babies this year! I'm not sure if it's in the water, but every once in a while, a string of girl - or boy - babies come through my studio doors. This year was no exception; over the summer, I worked with at least 5 girls for every one boy. Recently, though, the tides have been changing. October and November have seen a great deal of little ones, and I'm seeing a lot more boys! Baby W is no exception - the week I worked with him, I also had the pleasure of working with another little boy as well as a little girl. Welcome to the world, baby W. It has been my absolute pleasure capturing your newborn moments.

Mr. A - Cake smash for a little prince

I first met A for his Halloween mini earlier this autumn. He was an absolutely adorable little Incredible guy, all smiles and a delight! Needless to say, I was absolutely thrilled when mom asked me to do his cake smash as well. The theme colours were teal and silver, and my beloved teal backdrop was the perfect complement to his colours. The little guy had done a test run for his cake smash earlier in the week, and was quite happy to dig into his actual cake. All in all, we had a blast. Thanks for celebrating your first birthday with #kirstenlauferphotography, Mr. A!

Mr. D - Cake smash for a styling little guy

Earlier this month, I had the pleasure of working with D for his cake smash. I'd worked with his cousin a year prior and had had a great time - it's wonderful to take part in D's birthday as well! D has the most amazing hair, so we went for a theme that was fitting for him...semi James Dean, 1950s little man. It was perfect for such a great little guy. Happy first birthday, sweet Mr. D!
