I know you have a lot of options when it comes to hiring a family photographer, so I very much appreciate you being here! I have my BFA in Visual Fine Arts (SFU 2010) as well as a BEd (SFU 2011). This means I‚Äôm trained in composition, lighting and have worked with thousands of children, teens and adults over my teaching career. I take the stress out of your session planning by helping with wardrobe, timeline planning (don‚Äôt forget about those nap times!), and what to do with your beautiful photos once you get them back after they‚Äôve been expertly edited! During your session I help with how to move in front of the camera, provide prompts for those not as comfortable having their photos done, and get little ones to open up REAL quick. The end result is photos that you will truly love that will last a lifetime (or two)! I love families and children. When I‚Äôm not behind the camera I‚Äôm in front of a classroom - working with children is my passion! Photographing all your milestones is what makes my heart sing. I can‚Äôt wait to chat more about it over coffee or zoom!

I love family sessions. Whether your kids are grown and soon-to-be going off to college, or little babies, it‚Äôs so important to document your time with them because it‚Äôs fleeting. I have a 20-month-old and I can‚Äôt even believe that he‚Äôll be two in four short months. How?!? Give me all the snuggly pictures with my boy while he‚Äôs still small. My philosophy is that the best photos come from deep connection - not only between the subjects, but with the photographer as well. And that is my goalwhen I'm invited into your moments: form a bond between us, so that my intuition is refined enough to recognize where my camera should be pointed.
A family session is all about connection. Those genuine candid smiles and laughs. Not your typical stand beside each other stiff and smile, those pictures show what a person look like. My goal is to create images that make you feel! That when you look at them years down the road you smile because you are taken back to that moment when your children were just little, and you remember the sound of their laugh or the way they looked at you. A mix of candid and posed that show connection! the Family Mini Session (20 min) is great for those with younger ones who may not be up for a longer session, or those only wanting a few images (15+ images) the Family Full Session (45-60 min) is ideal as it gives a longer time for children to warm up if they may be shy/uncertain, as well as provides for a greater diversity in background settings on location, and for creating beautiful albums (40+ images)
Do you wish getting a photoshoot could be as easy as a stroll through the park? No worrying about whether your little ones will stand still long enough? Well now it can be! With my Central Park family session package we will do just that, take a stroll through central park in Burnaby and allow your kids to explore and enjoy themselves authentically! I'll capture candids of them having a blast, and skillfully capture a few slightly more posed looking shots while we're at it! Contact me today to book your session!
