Evening light, my favourite orchard and a beautiful mommy and her daughter. Terri won the mommy and me mini session contest that I had back in May for Mother’s Day; so glad that we waited until her bump was a bit bigger and the apples were on the trees. This was so fun! I think I may have to do mommy and me mini sessions next spring… Enjoy these images of two lovely ladies!
This. 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!

It was so great to meet up with this awesome extended family in Okanagan Falls! This is one of the very first family’s that I photographed when we moved to the south Okanagan a couple of years ago. They’ve since added a new babe and the kids have sure grown.
Sweet Naliah. The third child sure doesn’t come home from the hospital in the same way that the first child does. There is already a Barbie house waiting, piles of dress up clothes in the trunk, books sprawled over the bed and countless dresses of varying sizes in the closet. This family is very ready for another girl. It won’t be long before her sisters and playing house with her, of course this time Naliah will be the baby. There’s really no need for the dolls now that this little cuties has entered the house. What a wonderful experience to spend the morning with this family! Their newest little treasure sure is adored by all.
The mosquitos may have been crazy bad but this soon to be mama of three was as beautiful as ever. With less than two weeks to go until the due date, everyone was eagerly anticipating the arrival of a new baby in the family. Can’t wait for those baby snuggles in a few weeks!
