I’m loving the Abbotsford Tulip Festival, its stunning and having this amazing place right here in my own home town is so awesome.  I love this little family and I’m so lucky to have had the chance to photograph them!  😀

Meet Greta, she’s a beautiful little girl who needs a lot of support.  In December 2014 she was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, starting a long and hard journey of fighting against cancer.  I saw her story on Facebook and it touched my heart.   I feel overwhelmed with the need to help in any way I can, and I know many of you feel the same way….  So here’s a way to support Greta in her fight to beat cancer and get a new treatment from Texas that she needs.

I love Wilband Park, it might be one of my favourite places to shoot.  Its located in Abbotsford and every season it looks different which makes it so versatile.  😉  I’ve Photographed this little family a few times and each session I have such a great time with them!  We actually started their session in my studio with Hannah as she was just six months… we did the same with Hailey when she was six months so it was perfect that we did the same for both girls.  Then we headed to the park and finished up playing in the leaves, running and jumping.  😉  Just as we were about to finish poor little Hannah fell asleep in daddies arms and cuddled in for a nap, she is way too cute!  I’m excited to share their session with you!

Mommy with her girls.

Hello!!!!!   So I’m re starting up a series of Throw Back Thursday!!   This series will highlight sessions I’ve done in the past whether it be 2 months ago or 2 years ago.

The only thing my mom wanted for Christmas was photos of my family, my sister, her BF and her fur babies… she had actually asked for this for Mothers Day and I dropped the ball…. so at the last moment, just before the sun was setting we ran out, used a tripod and got these photos.  Might be the best gift I have ever given my mom, she cried and was so happy to have these photos of us.  (If you need a good gift for your family… hint, hint.. 😉 you need to do it) It was SO worth it!

I am so honoured to be able to share Feather’s story, she is such an inspiration and is amazing in her love for God and her two girls. We had chatted about doing photos and came up with this amazing slideshow telling her story from where she came from to where she is now.  Talking with her I have realized as a mother, how important photos are, and that getting these images with your children matter… looking back I wish I did more photos with my girls as babies and even now stepping in front of the camera more often, and not always being behind it.  I felt like I wanted to do that for Feather, get these images for her and for her girls to cherish for a lifetime.  Painting the pink in her hair was very significant as its next to the image of her girls painting her head when they were little.  She wanted the two side by side, showing where she came from and where she is now… she is strong, courageous and inspirational and I am so thankful to share this story.

In honour of Mother’s Day coming up, I am offering 50% off all the digital image collections for a shoot with moms and their children.   I will be donating the other 50% of the collections to CIBC Run For The Cure since April is cancer awareness month and my family has also been touched by cancer, so it sure hits close to home.  It doesn’t matter how old or young you are, we all deserve to have these images for years to come.  Please contact for further details.

The Loft Hair Salon will also be offering with the photo shoot a blowout and makeup application for $60 donating $5 to Crystal Gala Breast Health Clinic In Abbotsford  (Value $80) ….. so spoil yourself with having your hair and makeup done.

I have photographed these two a couple times and they had no problem giving the smiles again.  😀 I love how I get to photograph clients year after year, seeing them grow and change.  I feel so blessed to get to do what I love.

This little sweetie is one!!!  😀 She was so cute with her momma and daddy all dressed up with a crown and a tutu.  I also noticed since our last photo shoot a certain stink eye that really made me laugh… I think you’ll notice it a couple times during the session.  😉

With the year ending I am wanting to add a few more blog post from 2014 in…. This little family has been in my life for years, I love them dearly.  Our girls are friends and we have watched these littles grow into girls and now we are school moms.  Long ago from the the days of Milestones.  😉 Such a blessing and an honour to photograph them!  ♥2014-12-29_0001.jpg
