Kyle and Keterah's Wedding Day

Who knew that February could have such picture perfect weather?! It was such a beautiful day and we had a great time. Kyle and Keterah had their formal photos done before the wedding which I always enjoy. They had their special moment, with just the two of them (well, plus us!) at the Abbey. We did just couple pictures first and then the wedding party joined us an hour later. We then went to Whonnock Lake for the ceremony and reception. What an amazing location! Check out the pictures with the dock, isn't that place so beautiful? Thank you so much, Kyle and Keterah, for inviting us to be part of your day. All the best to you as you begin the rest of your lives together!

It will still be about a week before I'm done editing their wedding photos but here are just a few to look at in the meantime. It was a beautiful day, an amazing location, and we were able to capture it for a wonderful couple. Awesomeness all around. Congratulations you two!

My Boys

I haven't ever posted pictures of my boys here but man, they are just too darn cute. I had to. Here are just a few pictures from the last couple of days. Maybe I should do a little photo shoot of Gary:) I don't think he would ever let me, he really prefers to be behind the camera. Gary and I are heading downtown to take pictures this week so hopefully we'll get some good ones! Go Canada, Go!

Rachel's Baby Belly

Rachel came by for a play date with her son, Asher. She let me take a few belly shots while she was here:) Rachel has made it to 37 weeks so far...not much longer! All the best to you three as you await your little one!

Head Shots

Gary had done some head shots for the actors in the school performance of `Pack of Lies'. Here are just a couple of them. If you are interested in senior/grad shots, please contact us for more info!

Jantina's Maternity Pictures; Part II

About 7 weeks ago, I took some maternity pictures of my sister Jantina. We decided to go for a walk at Mill Lake in Abbotsford and I took my camera along. Jan lives in Mission so it was the perfect in between meeting place. We met early in the morning and enjoyed a leisurely walk around the lake while taking just a few pictures. I'm so excited that the next pictures I take of her will have her little baby in her arms! Not much longer, Janny Bear!

As a side note, if you are having a maternity photo session, it is usually best if you have several different outfits and if possible, have a friend, partner, or kid with you. It just mixes up the photos a bit:) Doug had already gone to the first one, and wasn't interested in a girly chat around the lake, so that's why he wasn't along. Often men are not interested or comfortable going into photo shoots, this is totally normal. If they wanted, for a maternity shoot, I could just photograph their hands and arms around the belly so it's super easy to do. Also, almost every man has said `Oh, that was actually fun!' afterwards. It's a lot more about capturing natural connections between you rather than forcing uncomfortable poses. Regardless, I would recommend getting some belly shots, whether they are your own, by a friend, or by me. It's a beautiful way to celebrate the life inside of you and it's a great way to remember how wonderfully pregnant you were.
