Trish | Mini Maternity Session

My littlest sister, Trish, is having her second baby in about a month!   I'm very excited to meet my newest niece or nephew (I know what it is but maybe they are not sharing)!  I was there for Hannah's birth and I'm hoping I'm there for the little ones arrival.  We get back from a large trip on her due date...Last time I had more of a support role but this time I would be there as the photographer.  We'll see!

These photos were sort of last minute (we had changed the date) and we wanted to do them when Hannah was happy, so they were at 3 pm.  Not ideal on a bright sunny day, but we got a few.  Little did we know, Hannah had food poisoning as we were soon to find out.  She was not the happiest little girl and did not let Trish put her down (I actually photoshopped her out on the two photos of Trish by herself !).  Poor girl, had we known how she was feeling we wouldn't have done them.  Well, she was a trooper and we got some keepers.

Here are just a few pictures of my lil sis and her girl Hannah.  Trish, you are a beautiful momma!  Enjoy!

Jessica & Nick | Pitt Meadows Wedding Photos

If you could order up any weather for your wedding day, this would be it!  Clouds that make it look like it could rain at any time with some sweet sunshine pouring through.  Loved it! 

Jessica & Nick have been dating  for 8 years and they celebrated their big day at the South Bonson Community Center in Pitt Meadows.  I love that location as there is so much natural light in the building!  You will notice it in their ceremony and reception photos.  They just so happened to get married on `Maple Ridge Day' so there were even fireworks to celebrate their big day. 

Jessica works as an editor/producer at Oh Boy Productions (video production) so she definitely knows her stuff.  I love when she first contacted me and wanted to know all about what cameras and lenses we shot with.  I totally would have asked the same question.  They had some great video coverage of their day too so I know they've `covered all their angles' :) 

Their wedding party was full of loved ones; siblings and friends.  Jessica had four friends that she has been friends with through high school and they are still all close 10 years later.  

Without further ado, here are `some' photos of their beautiful day! Enjoy.

Congratulations Jessica and Nick!! Thank you for choosing us to capture your big day.  We loved the venue and you were all so easy to work with!  All the best to you two.
Love, Louise and Gary
