Wainwright extended family | Langley photography

There’s an acreage near Langley that we love to spend time at when we are in the Vancouver area.  The beautiful home of one of my cousin’s and her family.  It’s a fun, busy household that is also very welcoming!  In November while I was in Langley to celebrate my nephew’s first birthday, they had a houseful.  It was great to meet the rest of the Wainwright family as they were all together that weekend so it was a wonderful opportunity to photograph their extended family.  With such a large family there’s a lot of people to coordinate and they were all in town for another occasion that afternoon.  Thankfully with the only window of time possible for a photo session the weather worked in our favor too!  The challenge of Langley photography at that time of year is rain and leading up to that Saturday the forecast was showing 80% chance of rain.  Major cringe.  Having a Plan B is not exactly easy with such a big group so I’m certainly glad the reality that day was much different!  I was jumping for joy when there was not only no precipitation falling but gorgeous sunshine!!  It kept everyone warm and made the fall colors really pop.  It felt like a really quick visit but was an enjoyable, special time in the sunshine with their wonderful family!

Blu – One Year photos | Langley

Up, up and away!!  It’s fun to be one!  Blu’s first year certainly flew by.  We were together several times throughout the year and I was glad to fly out to Abbotsford to celebrate his first birthday.  Which of course also included taking his one year photos!  A bonus was missing out on a cold weather week at home and there were still plenty of pretty fall colors in the Vancouver area.

Blu’s a really happy baby and since he’d already been walking for a couple months, my sister’s idea of a hot air balloon for his one year photos worked perfect.  We got heaps of cute smiles and fun expressions with him in the basket.  Clapping, waving and entertaining anyone that walked by in the park.  When he was not contained Blu was constantly on the move!  A test to my manual focusing skills as I shot a couple rolls of film as well.  Having just enjoyed time in Hawaii with this handsome baby boy, I miss his smiles and giggles!  I really am lucky to be Auntie to so many adorable, wonderful kids!!

Kohonick | Weyburn extended family photos

The location of these extended family photos could lead one to believe I went on a mini vacation to with their family.  Which if they invited me along to Florida and Hawaii, as we talked about on that chilly day to have warm thoughts to keep teeth from chattering, I wouldn’t pass it up!  We commented then that it felt like we were in a different place, a different city!  I love when gems like this historical brick building are discovered.  Especially at a time of year when the scenery is less than ideal.  It worked well to provide some shelter from the wind, rain and even hail at one part of the session.

Speaking of gems, there’s a family I’ve had the pleasure of photographing for several years in these photos.  They are a beautiful, loving family, are always well prepared and shine in front of the camera.  It was lovely they included all of his family for this year’s photo session.  A significant reason to all get together for extended family photos in 2018 was for these parents + grandparents that celebrated their 40th anniversary!  A milestone to celebrate!!  My time with their family was uplifting and enjoyable even though the weather was unfavorable.  There were several times that an umbrella was kindly held over my head and camera so we could keep shooting.  To say they toughed it out is an understatement!!  They truly amazed me and kept a happy vibe throughout the shoot!  The hot chocolates they headed off for afterwards were a well deserved treat.  My fingers were numb by the end of the shoot but I was very glad to spend time in their company and capture these extended family photos.  Special memories for their wonderful family to enjoy!!!

Van Roon family | Weyburn family photography

On a warm, sunny morning in early September I met up with this Weyburn family.  It was really fun to meet them and fall sessions are lovely!  There was just a hint of colors starting to show.

I love when clients want to use their photos for Christmas gifts.  To have such a personal, meaningful gift for families is wonderful and sure to be appreciated.  Now that the holidays are past I’m excited to share these photos!  It was cute watching the boys be boys.  They have sweet personalities and their smiles are adorable!  They are a fun, playful family that loves to be outdoors.  We met at a great spot with space to play!  I always appreciate when parents are willing to be goofy to get cute reactions and expressions.  It’s the greatest!!  Then to see how much they adore one another, holding hands and wanting to be close is super sweet.  Our time together flew by and was very enjoyable with the warmth of the sun and their fun family!!

Happy 2019! Happy New Year!!

Happy 2019!!  Happy New Year!

I’m grateful for the business, support and encouragement I’ve received in the past year.  I appreciate each one that checks in here on my blog and on social media.  Thank you for following along and supporting my photography!

I love this recent capture of Lake Minnewanka and the mountains reflecting on the ice.  There’s a lot of reflecting at this time of year.  Reminiscing, evaluating and planning.  Another year to look back on and 2018 for the most part was a really great year for me.  Another year that taught me many things personally and in my business.  Another year that brought wonderful people into my life and in front of my camera.  It was an honor to capture special moments and precious memories.   Another year of opportunities to shoot in new, interesting places.  Near and far.  I feel thankful, encouraged and inspired as we start this new year!!  I hope you feel the same.  Oh the possibilities of a fresh, new year.  Happy 2019!

Thanks to my favorite guy, my love, that I was in front of the camera too while we were out hiking in Banff National Park over the holidays.

I am dedicating time this month to catch up on the blog and share more from 2018.  Client sessions (some clients used their photos for holiday gifts, which I love!), styled workshop shoots, my spring travels to Europe and other adventures throughout the year.  More to come soon!!
