♥ Lindsay, Adam and Baby Orrik♥

This amazing family was the subject of TWO of my sessions last week. We headed out into the shivery, snowy weather and Lindsay was having quite a few contractions. Being fairly familiar with birth and the process behind it, and the fact that she was a couple of weeks early, I tired to assure Lindsay she was probably not be in real labor. Boy was I WRONG! our session ended at noon and by 3 am baby Orrik was here :) So this is the first dual blog post I have ever done. Talk about cutting it close! I hope you guys love your images, you are a truly beautiful couple and your new baby boy is absolutely perfect!

♥ True Colours ♥

Halloween was such a great day! besides taking my amazing children out trick r treating I had the distinct pleasure of photographing a group of incredible dancers in a creepy Hallows eve location! Drak's Castle is well known by old time vally-ites but may be a secret to many. One of my best freinds Livea Gill's dance company is True Colours and I was so into it when she suggested this location to capture her dancers in a "creepy" vibe for their "lucid nightmare" theme this year. As you can see these guys were beyond amazing in bare feet and leotards in nearly sub zero temperatures!! :)

♥ The Boelk Family ♥

Another amazing Fall session this week, this time with the wonderful Boelk family! You may remember their beautiful little girl Tori from a session I did in the summer and now they are 40 weeks pregnant with their next baby, a little boy, who's name is going to be a surprise! They suggested Macdonald Wood in Comox to get some beach and woods scenery and it couldn't have worked out better! We got there early enough to catch the burning sun hanging in the crisp morning sky and some really cool cloud and reflection and silhouette images. Thanks again guys! Sending you positive, relaxing and utterly blissful birth wishes :)

♥ Michaela ♥

I got to photograph this little cutie because her mom won the FireFly: New Beginnings Market Days draw way back in July! We finally met up on a drizzly day for my first-ever visit to the Sky Park down at the Courtenay bird sanctuary. Michaela is such a vibrant and care free little girl, it was so magical watching her  play in leaves and be so adorable!

♥ Jolene and Justine ♥

I had another glorious photo shoot a few weeks back with these two beautiful little ladies! Keeping miss Jolene still was a challenge in itself and her vim for life was a reminder to me that life cant be taken too seriously. Even though she was on the move, we got some amazing shots! Baby Justine is equally amazing and her sweet nature and laid back attitude made her a cinch to photograph! Thanks so much Jennifer, for allowing me this experience and being so patient for your blog post! School is definitely consuming a lot of my time and your sensitivity is so very much appreciated :), Enjoy!
