The D Family | Derby Reach Family Session

I would say that the one day in an entire week where it did not rain was the day we had this session!  So awesome.  It was really fun to take photos of `big' kids for a know, when I don't have to make funny sounds and sing in my VERY terrible voice.  Being one of 5 girls, there is something special about an all girl family.  They got along so well!  Maybe they don't all the time, but wow, so nice to see.  Can't say that we were as affectionate growing up:)  

Sylvia is a colleague of Gary's and my first memory of her was actually 22 years ago!  I was in grade 8 and we were biking the Sunshine Coast to raise money for bleachers for our school.  I'm pretty sure I was the slowest biker (it may have helped to have practiced?!) and Sylvia was a young teacher on the trip and she stayed back with me.  Thank you, Sylvia!

It was pretty windy and cold but you can't even tell.  We started out at Derby Reach Heritage Site and then went to the entrance of Bedford Landing, I love that brick wall!  Without further ado, here are some pictures of this lovely family!   It's been a while since they have had family photos so we made sure to get a lot of different ones that are definitely keepers!   Enjoy.

Improving Your Photography | Workshop

Did you know that Gary and I are actually high school teachers?  We have taught this class several times and it has gone very well.  We are putting on a larger class this spring as a fundraiser.  We are wanting to contribute money to our son's school as they are building a new primary campus.  Right now, all donations are being matched so we would love to give a large amount.  You can find more information about the school here.

We are limited to 20 spots so please don't delay if you are interested.  Last time they sold out quickly!

Lauren | 13th Birthday Party

Several weeks back I did a session for Lauren's 13th birthday party.  The girls had makeovers and then came over for studio shots and some local outdoor ones!  It was a lot of fun and the girls had a bunch of their own ideas and it worked really well.   I love doing something different for a change and I think it's such a great idea to celebrate friendship and a very special birthday.

People often ask if I post every session and I don' of the factors is whether I have permission or not.  I didn't get consent from everyone (which I totally understand!), however, I can post a few of the pictures so you get an idea of what it was like.  Aren't these girls beautiful?  And seriously, what a fun birthday idea!  

Happy 13th birthday, Lauren!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I haven't blogged the last four sessions because I'm spending more time with my little loves these days.  And, my littlest love is teething which means my time is even more precious due to lack of sleep:)  I will post more soon!
