2D6A8166They met in sixth grade.  She liked him from the start but it took him a little longer to notice her.  Carmen and Malcom were high school sweethearts.  Their relationship is full of kindness, grace and adoring love.   For these two their wedding day was about each other and surrounding themselves with close family and friends.

Down a little country road, near fruit stands and orchards sits a beautiful country home.  Outside the sheep were in the pasture and the butterflies were among the flowers (really).  Inside, the girls were getting their hair down and practicing “walking down the aisle” up and down the hallway.  There was laughing, quiet smiles and sweet anticipation of what the day would bring.  What a joy it was to be able to document and tell the story of Carmen and Malcom’s amazing wedding day.  The sky was blue, the sun was shining and the day was perfect. Carmen and Malcom, may your love continue to grow and deepen through your married life.  May you serve each other and God with joyful hearts.  May you always find comfort, safety and love in each others arms.  This is a snapshot of Carmen and Malcom’s day… I hope it takes you back to the sights, sounds and beautiful moments of their day.

2D6A7459I used to teach with Sandra many years ago in Abbotsford.  It’s funny how the online world can make us feel like we’ve kept in touch more than we actually have.  I’ve always been grateful to see her little updates and follow along with what her family has been up to.  I was delighted when she got in touch saying that they were coming for a summer holiday in Oliver.  We had a great little family photo session and then got to spend time together the following day. When I think of people that are joyful and in general just super lovely, Sandra is defiantly on the list.  She’s got that contagious smile and passion for life.  It was so great meeting her kids and getting a glimpse of their personalities as well.

2D6A3817This.  Family, love, and a new baby.  These days are exhausting but they sure are sweet and beautiful.  Photographing a family in their own home is always an incredible honour and an experience that makes my heart oh so happy.  This is where a family is most comfortable and themselves.  Toddlers can play and even break for a nap.  I hope that these images always take your family back to your first week home from the hospital (the sweet and the challenging).  I hope that they stir your heart with the goodness that we find in family.  On the hard days, because we know that they happen, may they always remind you of the love that you share and the gift that you have in each other.

This little darling was beyond delightful and super sleepy.  Ashling, you gave such wonderful little cuddles!
