  • Stephanie | Lifestyle Maternity

  • I met Stephanie, Ryan and little Hannah at the Ocean side.
    The family had just settled in after a cross country move from Saskatchewan.
    Even just the thought of having her maternity photos near the ocean
    was so exciting for all of them.
    Hannah spent most of her time throwing rocks into water,
    as toddler do.
    In just a short while, she will become a big sister,
    and I get to go visit the family in their new home once they get settled in.

    I have loved getting to know them,
    and look forward to many more of our sessions together
    as they navigate parenthood with two beautiful girls and
    the wonderful ‘island life’.

  • Nash | Lifestyle Newborn

  • When I walk into a home of a family that has just had a new baby,
    the story I try and capture is about, not only that baby,
    but everyone in the household.
    Their story and how they are connected,
    is just as important to me.
    And that wee Baby is in the very centre of a wonderful story.

    This is especially true in homes where there is an older sibling.

    Parker has just become a big brother.
    His world is all dinosaurs and Thomas the Train,
    and now…little Nash is there too.

    The sudden bursts of interaction, the little bits of frustration,
    the juggle, the boundaries…
    the Love.
    All a part of it.
    Those are the things I love to see.
    They dont last long, soon the boys will be playing trains together,
    so its this fleeting moment in time we like to hang onto.

    This is the Anderson Family.
    Now a Beautiful Family of Four,
    and Welcoming a sweet little baby boy, called Nash.

    Here are a few favourites of my time with them…..

  • Judah | Lifestyle Newborn

  • Some of my most favourite photographs Ive ever taken have been with this wonderful family.
    Lauras maternity photo and Evas newborn photo
    graced the cover of my website for years.
    So I am fond of them to say the least.

    Time passes much to quickly
    and that beautiful newborn girl I photographed on her parents bed
    is now a Big Sister!
    Judah was welcomed into this world 6 weeks ago.
    The perfect and sweetest edition to this wonderful family.
    My time with them was easy, carefree and effortless,
    I love spending time with them and capturing them as they are.

    Welcome Sweet Judah!
    What a wonderful family you’ve got there 😉

    Here are some of my favourites!

  • Emerson | Maternity Life Session

  • I first met and photographed Tiffany and Sonny in a similar situation….
    They were pregnant with their first son, Cruz
    Since then, I have photographed their whole family numerous times and they have quickly become one of my favourites.
    This time I came to their home early Sunday morning to catch them, as they are, before they went to church.
    This is one of my favourite times to capture.
    Toddlers with endless energy, beautiful nursery waiting for a sweet baby and nervous excitement fills the air.
    They are in a time of change.
    And I am so happy I got to freeze these moments for them,
    soon a new baby boy, will make them a family of four.

  • Jordie, Bryna & Finley | Maternity & Lifestyle Newborn

  • I met Bryna and Jordie right before Christmas.
    They were expecting their first baby in the New Year and had me over to their home to photograph them
    and meet the other members of the family as well.
    With two big, friendly dogs and one cat, the home as already bursting with energy and love
    But there is always room for more.

    On January 9th, Finley Reid Aubrey Sattich was born.
    I came to meet him a few weeks later when they were all settled in at home.
    He is perfect.
    And he fits in just right with mom, dad and all his ‘four legged’ friends

    Welcome Finley,
    how wonderful it was to meet you.

  • Isis & Family | Lifestyle Family

  • Before I get into how great this family is,
    Let me tell you a funny little story….

    Over the holidays, my son Tate had been attending Gymnastic camp.
    At the end of the day, I asked him what his favourite part of it was
    and he told me about this girl named Isis.
    How she was his new friend and she had asked him to marry her.
    All week long, were stories of this adventurous ‘Isis’

    When I arrive at the Waters home, a bouncing little naked girl greets me on the other side of the door,
    and her mom says “Isis come and get dressed!”
    Isis?
    So I say to her as she is slipping on her glittery nylons..
    “Isis, do you go to Gymnastics camp?”
    “Oh YES! Yes I do!” She says excitedly.
    And I say “Well, you know what my sons name is?
    Tate!”

    Oh you should have seen the look on her face!
    “We’re getting Married!” She says

    And so was the start of our beautiful friendship, Isis and I,
    Who knows, one day I may be her Mother in Law 😉

    The Waters family was nothing short of amazing.
    In February they will welcome their second child,
    and I am extremely excited to be there for that and see Isis become a Big Sister.
    Included in our morning were her grandparents, which is always a special treat,
    and something I encourage and love to photography.
    After we were cozy in their home, we walked out into the backyard for a few in the snow before it melted away.

    Here are a few of my favourites from my morning,
    with Isis and her wonderful family.

  • The Khoury Family | Documentary Family Session

  • The Khoury Family has just made Vancouver Island their new home.
    They have lived in some of the most beautiful places in the world,
    so its not surprising they ended up here.

    I spent a better part of the day with them.
    When I arrived at their home they chose to take me to some of their favourite locations,
    places they have already fallen in love with in the short time they  have been here.
    I was happy to follow this gorgeous, energetic family with my camera.
    After a forrest walk, and a snack, we headed back to their home,
    where the family kicked of their shoes and cozied in.

    No long now, they will be a family of 5.
    And what an amazing addition this sweet baby will be to this beautiful family.
    I wish them love on the their next big adventure!

    Thank you Khoury Family, for allowing me to capture you!

  • Michelle | Sunrise Maternity

  • I am lucky enough to say that I have an incredible group of friends.
    Michelle is part of that of that wonderful circle.
    And although I don’t get to see her nearly as often as Id like,
    I love every moment I spend with her.

    This collection of Moments, might be some of my favourites.

    We met at 6:30am
    Much to early for the sunrise, but giving us lots of time to catch up,
    just the two of us without our children tugging at our legs for something.
    Then we waited for the sun,
    and slowly I watched it illuminate her gorgeous belly.

    Perfection.

    I feel forever grateful to be part of so many wonderful moment for my dear friend.
    This is the next chapter in her story,
    and what a way to celebrate it.

  • The Bestwicks | Maternity & Lifestyle Newborn

  • It is so incredibly wonderful to re connect with people you knew from what feels like a million years ago
    (also known as High School)
    Ive known Sarah for almost 20 years, it seems crazy to say that, but I have.
    So I was absolutely delighted when I got an email saying she wanted me to help her and Brett celebrate this journey.
    At 36 weeks pregnant I met them on a stormy night, ocean side.
    It was amazing and likely one of my favourite shoots to date.
    Their connection is undeniable and the unbelievable sky we had was the perfect backdrop to Sarahs gorgeous growing belly.

    About a week later I received a cell phone photo of a fresh baby girl.
    Surprise!
    She wrote “Thankfully we took the maternity photos when we did because she came early!”
    I just love surprises.
    Sweet little Isabelle Eveline was born healthy on September 7th weighing a wee 5 lbs 9 ounces.
    Just the sweetest little thing with a full head of dark hair.
    I met her about a week later when I was welcomed into the Bestwicks beautiful home,
    now a family of three.

    Honestly I could share every frame this family is so beautiful,
    I had goosebumps as I went through them.
    I am so grateful to be witness to such love.

    Thank you Sarah and Brett,
    Your Journey is just beginning and you are off on a wonderful start

  • Vanessa & Rob | Maternity

  • Maternity Sessions are so exciting.
    I love the energy you get from couples.
    A mixture of excitement, nerves and love as they are about to jump right into the adventure of a lifetime.
    Vanessa and Rob are just about ready to meet their sweet little girl.
    Very, very soon.

    I was so honoured to be able to celebrate this time with them.

    I had many favourites from this session.
    Whats not to like…
    A stunning couple connected and in love.
    A Beautiful Belly complimented by some gorgeous backdrops.

  • Jess & Ryan | Maternity

  • I met Jess and Ryan in Beacon Hill Park. Just a few blocks from their beautiful home.
    The Cherry Blossoms as just opened up in the city
    and it was pretty much the perfect backdrop to compliment Jess’ Radiance.

    A beautiful Baby Girl grows inside her belly and the next call I get from them
    will be to come down and document her journey into this world.

    I cant wait.

    Until then, a few favourites of our maternity session together.

  • The Millers | Family & Maternity

  • Meet the Millers.
    This fun, outgoing & kind family is about to welcome a new member into it.
    A Baby Brother.
    I first met Robyn and Greyson at Preschool.
    His sweet face and kind nature is such a welcome addition to my childrens class.
    Spending time with the whole family left me no questions as to how this little man got to be so great.
    The whole lot of them are just wonderful,
    and spending an afternoon seaside, where the family feels most ‘at home’, was perfect.

    It won’t be long now and Greyson and Tavin will be BIG brothers.
    What a lucky lil Babe he is already.

    Here are some of my favourites from Blue Heron Park and the next time I see this family,
    they will be ‘plus one’
