What drew me to photography are the people. I used to spend hours looking at prints my dad had taken of his travels, my mom, his friends and family. I was so fascinated by the moments that were captured and always wondering what it was like back then, what they were doing and quite often was also giggling at their hairstyles and fashion choices. I have to say my parents were pretty stylish in the 70s with my dad rocking a fro and bellbottoms. Looking at the prints was also so nostalgic no matter if I was or wasn't in them, definitely one of my favourite things to do.
Waking up super early was so worth it for this shoot with this sweet and adorable family. Nothing like watching a toddler with curly blonde hair giggle and run free in a field full of wildflowers.
Moms are rarely in the photos with their kids since they are usually the ones taking them, so I thought it was so incredibly thoughtful of Chan when he surprised Ivy with this gift!
So often when we reach new life milestones, it also means moving. For Steph and Wei, they were expecting their first baby and also moving from their first home together.
This second time mama didn't get a chance to get maternity photos done with her first born and so we made sure she didn't miss it the second time around. It was really nice to have this quiet time before the new baby joined the family.
I really love intimate weddings, throw brunch in there and I'm all kinds of happy! It meant the entire wedding happened during the day, a natural light photographer's dream.
From the moment Alexis and Ve started planning their wedding, they knew they wanted it to be about them and their loved ones. They left out a bunch of "traditions" and made it so personal and heartfelt, definitely one of my all time favourites.
A GLOWY MATERNITY
It wasn't long after I photographed Ophelia and Chan-Ra's wedding when I got the happy news that they were expecting. Ophelia just as beautiful at her maternity session as on her wedding day and Chan-Ra just as cheeky! Have to keep his tongue sharp to handle two ladies in his life now.
Shelley and Bjorn kept it classy, elegant and chic for their wedding. It didn't mean their wedding lacked personality, not at all, there were so many surprises, sweet tears and laughter throughout the day. Every time I look back at this wedding it makes me smile so much.
