Expecting: Kyle & Krystal

These two have much excitement in their lives right now. Together for almost four years and with Krystal sporting a gorgeous sparkly something on her left hand, they’re looking forward to a summer wedding next year. But not only that, Kyle and Krystal are welcoming their first child – a girl! – into their lives this Spring! And I think it was only fitting that their shoot took place on the first day of Spring…for what better way to celebrate a season of new life, than to document the expectation of a sweet new baby?

Krystal and I used to work together, so it was fun to catch up again during such an exciting time in her life. She sure does make for one gorgeous mama-to-be and I couldn’t be happier for her and Kyle as they anticipate the arrival of their daughter.

Thank you so much, you two!

Newborn Lifestyle Session: Peters Family

Dave, Alanna and big brother Jackson welcomed baby Silas into their hearts and home just last week. I had the honor of documenting his arrival into this world and witnessing my friend’s beauty and strength as she gave birth to her second son was inspiring.

I was all too thrilled to photograph this now family of four at their home the other day. There was something so sweet and simple about this session. Little Silas was entirely content to be doted upon and kissed and snuggled, while Jackson was all too excited about his new baby brother. There was the love that comes from filled and happy hearts, and affection for one another.

Dave and Alanna, so very happy for you and your growing family!

Langley Engagement: Levi & Karen

What do you do when the bride lives in Florida, the groom lives in Alberta, they have one weekend together in BC for their engagement session and heavy rains fall without ceasing? You forge ahead, of course. With smiles, umbrellas and love that won’t cease, either.

Levi and Karen met while working at a Bible camp and it was there that Levi found love. It took a return trip for Karen to see it, too, but she’s been making those return trips from Florida ever since. This past Christmas Eve, Levi got down on bended knee on a beach in Karen’s hometown, proposed marriage and Karen said yes! They’ll become husband and wife in May in Levi’s hometown of Langley and I’m so thrilled to be this sweet couple’s photographer.
