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! Be sure to check out the link at the bottom of the post for the next photographer and continue on with the blog circle!

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 – Waking up from a nap || July 2018 || Vancouver Family Photographer

I am participating in a monthly blog circle with a group of talented photographers from all around the world. Every month we post 10 photos and link to the next person. Please find the link to the next photographer at the end of the blog post!

Summer vacation started last week and it has already been busy. My little girl did space camp last week, I’m trying to get her prepared for starting preschool in September. I had no idea how it was going to go but she did great! I was definitely a proud momma! She also started soccer last week and this week started gymnastics. Thought that I should keep her busy and give us something to do throughout the summer. After gymnastics I knew she was tired but she usually doesn’t take a nap when I am home (unless she falls asleep in the car or I take her for a walk in the stroller). She does however take naps with grandparents. But today after lunch I convinced her to cuddle with me. So after a little while she did eventually fall asleep (not going to lie so did I, I may have even fallen asleep before her!). Even though now she doesn’t nap everyday when she does waking her up can be very difficult. I decided that I was just going to take some photos of her sleeping for my project 52. And then as I was doing this I was trying to wake her up and took pictures as I did this and decided that this was going to be this months 10 on 10. Waking her up from a nap can be a difficult task and take some time, she often rolls over and goes back to sleep. These moments are the little things that I feel are easily forgotten, but I am so glad I captured this moment and all her expressions as she was woken up from her nap. Hope you enjoy the photos and don’t forgot to check out the next photographer at the bottom of the post.

It is now almost the end of June and my Project 52 is going on strong! I am loving taking photos every week of my girl. It has been a while so I thought I would do a blog post of some of my Project 52 photos since March. I am looking forward to taking more photos outside now that it is summer! I do post more regularly on Instagram, you can follow me here to keep up to date and see what we get up to this summer!
