10 on 10 || Decorating Cookies || February 2019 || Vancouver Family Photographer

This months 10 on 10 blog circle is decorating Valentine’s cookies. We went to the store a couple weeks ago and she saw some cookies and wanted to decorate them. So I said I would get them closer to Valentine’s day. So the other day I brought them home and showed her and she of course wanted to make them that day. So I popped them in the oven, made the icing and then got my camera out and let her decorate! As you can see from the first photo she was very excited and you can’t decorate without having a little taste of the icing before your all done!

10 on 10 – Bedtime routine || January 2019 || Vancouver Family Photographer

Happy New Year! This is my first blog post of the new year. Last year I participated in a monthly 10 on 10 bog circle. I did pretty good at the beginning of the year and then towards the end I didn’t quite get in on every month. So this year we are doing it again and I am excited about it! I didn’t think that I was going to even have anything for the first month, but the other night my daughter was taking a bath and she called me over and I saw she had a bubble beard so I had to take a photo of it! And then I just decided in that moment that I would capture her bedtime routine. And voila January’s 10 on 10 blog post was on its way! Sometimes I find I try to think too much of what I could do the photos on so this was nice I saw the moment and went with it. I’m trying to get her to be a bit more independent and do more things on her own so this week at ¬†bedtime she has been putting her pjs on all by herself. She had difficulties with this before but she has been doing really well with it now. So proud of my baby…I guess she isn’t really a baby anymore, but she will always be my baby!

A Day In the Life Session with Jen and her boys || Documentary Family Photographer || Surrey, BC

Last month I got to hang out with Jen and her 2 sons at their home in Surrey. Jen is also a photographer, you can check out her work here. As photographers we are always taking photos of other people or even of our own kids but then we find that we are not in very many photos with them! So Jen wanted to do a session with her boys where she was actually in the photos. This day in the life session was perfect for that because they got to hang out at home and just be themselves and I just captured their day for them. These are the memories we want to remember as our kids get older, the things that we used to do with them like baking cookies, reading, watching dishes, and just playing. Here is the slideshow with all the images and below are some of my favs from our session!

 

10 on 10 || PNE || September 2018 || Vancouver Family Photographer

I am participating in a 10 on 10 blog circle. A group of photographers from all over the world take photos every month and post 10 and we each link to another photographer. Be sure to check out the link to the next blog at the bottom of the post!

This summer ended up being quite a busy one and I enjoyed spending time with the family and didn’t take out my camera too much. This is why I missed last months 10 on 10. But in August we went to the PNE and I took my camera along because I thought it would be a fun day to document. The kids had so much fun eating, playing games, going on rides and going to the petting zoo. We saw a lot of sheep and got up close with a couple of them. E was scared to pet them, it took her a while but she finally did! The sheep was SO soft! Here are 10 photos from our day at the PNE!
