There’s nothing like newborn sweetness, especially with an adorable sibling who dotes and loves on the little babe. It wasn’t long ago that I photographed just Jon, Nikki, and Xseniya last Fall. Nikki mentioned that they were hoping to have another, and before long, there was the announcement on Facebook that they were expecting again! In fact, Nikki had been pregnant at our shoot and just hadn’t known it yet :)

I was all too happy to document them as a family of four recently, after welcoming sweet DeAndre Jovenal to their hearts and home.

Many thanks and much love to the Loewen family!

I had been looking forward to this day since Brad and Camille’s Lighthouse Park engagement session last year. Actually, I had been looking forward to it since even before I met them, while emailing back and forth with Camille about their wedding plans and such. It just so happens that Camille’s middle name is Joy, and joy is exactly what you sense when you talk to her, whether it be in person or by email. But no one gives Camille as much joy as Brad does, and it was evident the whole day through. They shared handwritten vows, tears and laughter, and love for those who came to celebrate their marriage.

Brad and Camille, thank you so much for the honour of being your wedding photographer! I truly enjoyed getting to document the start of your life together as husband and wife. Wishing you nothing but the best!


Sweet, bubbly, and oh so pretty…Camille was a delight to work with and photograph…made extra glam by the talented Felicia Bromba.


The threat of rain moved the ceremony indoors, but it made it all the more intimate…


Gratefully, the rain held off and the sun shone. We took photos at the UBC Botanical Gardens…
I only wish we had had more time to take advantage of all its beauty!


Kari of Confetti Floral Designs worked her magic once again…I’ve loved her work since she did my own wedding flowers :)


Congrats, Mr & Mrs!

Recently, my cousin Kyle and his bride to be, Danielle, drove down from their home in Kamloops, BC to our home in Washington for their engagement session. They drove 2+ hours each way just for their shoot! Gratefully, the sun was shining and we had some fun exploring and documenting this exciting season of wedding prep and anticipation. It was hot, so we were all too happy to shoot by the river and dip our toes in the water. This September, Kyle and Dee will be saying their I do’s and becoming husband and wife in an orchard wedding in Summerland, BC. We can’t wait to be there to capture it and celebrate alongside as we welcome Dee into the family!
