Summer Garden

A few weeks back I had an opportunity to shoot some family photos of my good friends. I love the sunshine and the wonderful back yard that this shoot took place in. It was wonderful to spend some time with friends — sun, laughter and joy.

Water and Sun

About a week ago I had the privileged to work with some wonderful people. These pictures were taken at Rocky Point park in Port Moody, BC. The late evening sun reflecting on the water proved to be a bit of a challenge for me, but I feel like I got a few very good shots. It was so amazing to work with this little family. I feel very grateful to have met them <3

Family Photos

After a long hibernation (aka maternity leave), I picked up my camera again. I was fortunate that a friend wanted to have some photos taken before her family of 3 + the dog became a family of 4 + the dog. I had so much fun with this little family. It is incredibly easy to photograph joyous, fun and genuinely nice people.

SONY DSC This has to be my favourite photo. The proud, strong and gorgeous mama!

Play

I am sorry that it has been so long since I posted anything new. Things have been a bit crazy here. 8 months ago we had a little boy and now I am somebody’s mother (what a scary, scary thought…). My maternity leave turned out to be a full-time job, contrary to my believes before the baby that this will be a piece of cake and I will likely get bored. However, despite my busy days I really missed taking photos. More so, I missed being able to see like a photographer. So, while Will was taking his nap, I pulled out some of his favourite toys and decided to shake off the dust from my camera. I am very rusty, but I hope you will enjoy these.

SONY DSCThis is Will’s “whatcha-ma-call-it”. He loves to chew on the wooden ends.

SONY DSCWill doesn’t understand soft toys yet, but it is my hope that The Crock in Socks will become his favourite.

SONY DSCThis is just one shelf of Will’s growing library, featuring a very complicated stacking toy. We picked it up at a thrift store and have yet to figure out the proper order of its rings (maybe it’s just me…)

SONY DSCOh, so much fun to be had with this simple suction toy!

SONY DSCThis is a small part of a bigger, zoo-themed toy. I think the turtle is my favourite.

I hope you have enjoyed these images as much as I enjoyed taking and editing them.

I can see this being a really cool folk album cover. Maybe Mumford & Sons or Bright Eyes.

Under the Pagoda

These images were taken at Nitobe Memorial Garden in UBC (Vancouver). We’ve been extremely lucky this year to have so many sunny days. The light was perfect in every way and I think that these images turned out quite well. Enjoy!
