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!

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!

 

Abbotsford Tulip Festival || Abbotsford Family Photographer

Last month we went to the Abbotsford Tulip Festival for Mother’s Day. I had been seeing lots of photos and saw some last year as well but never got a chance to go. So this year we were going to Abbotsford anyways so I told my husband that for Mother’s Day I wanted to go. We went about a week to late because there were not as many tulips as I had hoped for. It was still nice and we definitely got the idea, but I learned that next year we will have to go earlier to see them in full bloom with all the beautiful colours! I did get some great photos of my family and my daughter so I was still happy!

Ashauna’s 8th Birthday || Abbotsford Birthday Photographer

My niece Ashauna turned 8 last month and she celebrated with a high tea themed birthday party. There was tons of food and lots of treats. I think the adults were more into the food than the kids (which was delicious and I definitely enjoyed it). But the kids were busy having fun playing. They played musical chairs (they improvised and used pillows instead). My nephew Ayden even put on a little magic show, it was very entertaining! And then of course they got to each some cake! The beautiful cake was made by Just Cakes.
