Growing up – Graduation Portraiture Vancouver and Surrey

So my little cousin graduated this year and we made the trek WAY up north to her teeny tiny town to be a part of the graduation festivities!  Mollie was her candle bearer – someone who is gets the light of knowledge passed onto them.  It was a very cool experience for Mollie as she LOVES my cousin {M}.  {M} has been coming down to stay with me every single year since Mollie was born for one week during the summer.  It was always a chance for her to get to have fun in the big city, shopping for school clothes and generally sightseeing and relaxing.  Right now she is currently driving down here once again and should arrive tomorrow on my birthday! Except this time she is STAYING and going to university!!! She was accepted with a scholarship to Simon Fraser University!!!! I am so proud of her as that is my old university!  WAY to go {M}!!

As I said in my post from two days ago I was super excited to put up these newborn photos! This little girl was just soooo precious! She posed like a pro for me and let me move her around into the sweetest positions.  I have a second whole series of photos I will post next week as too as there were just too many great ones!!! Her big sister was an angel once again for me – I always think that every family I photograph is the cutest family but these two sisters are absolutely the most angelic girls!

I hope you enjoy these Mommy as I know you are watching for them!

 

Keep on the look out for the second series of photos from this little sweetheart’s session!!!

I recently had the pleasure of photographing this lovely Mommy to be and her SWEET SWEET little girl.  Little Miss {A} was just so excited to meet her new sister and was extremely cooperative given that she is only 3!!! I just last week got to meet the new little sister and can’t wait to showcase her on the blog soon!

Until then you will have to oooh and ahhh over these photos! I guarantee that the newest addition to the family is JUST AS BEAUTIFUL!

And the last image is one of my all time FAVORITE images EVER!!!

Well its just another MACRO Monday!!! I LOVE messing around with my macro lens.  If I am in a bad mood or am feeling blah for any reason I just need to whip out the macro lens and go on the hunt for some flowers or bugs or interesting teeny tiny things.  A few weeks ago I spent no more than 5 minutes after the Sparks Spree (Girl Guide Fun Day) snapping pics of some cool flowers around Campbell Valley Park.  I finally got a chance to edit them and decided to run them through a haze process. It gives them a nice warm and calm effect I think. Don’t miss the little ANT on the very last flower!

So now that this lovely couple has officially tied the knot I am free to post the pictures they had be do as presents a few weeks ago.  H and P got married yesterday in the Okanagan in a very small ceremony. They contacted me about a month ago and wanted to get some engagement photos done to be able to give out to people as gifts at the wedding!  I was happy to oblige and we headed out to the walking trails that run beside Burns Bog where we were able to get some fantastic portraits of the two of them!

I hope your ceremony was beautiful and that you were able to surprise everyone with your lovely photos!

CONGRATULATIONS!

Beauty around us – Maple Ridge Photographer

June 14th, 2011

Every single day or often multiple times I day I drive by fields.  Many of these fields are empty.  Many have some sort of farm or construction equipment in them.  But often these fields have horses in them.  One field in particular at the end of our road frequently has horses out in the pasture […]

 

Every single day or often multiple times I day I drive by fields.  Many of these fields are empty.  Many have some sort of farm or construction equipment in them.  But often these fields have horses in them.  One field in particular at the end of our road frequently has horses out in the pasture and without fail Mollie will ALWAYS ask if we can knock on the owners doors and see if we can ride them!  A few weeks ago I drove by the horse field after work and the lighting WAS GORGEOUS!  I went home and got my camera it was so gorgeous.  These are just two of the pics I took.

I am in awe that I live in such a beautiful place.  See we moved to Maple Ridge almost a year ago and I am still not quite used to the rural-ness of the area.  It probably should be mentioned that I live WAY WAY out in Maple Ridge.  In forest and farms.  I am not in the city AT ALL! We moved from Surrey – within walking distance to the Guildford Mall.  I grew up in Guildford and had been there for 30 years but it was time for a change so a big change it was! Go big or go home right???  Well I am VERY happy we live in the “country” now.  As Mollie said after we moved, “Mommy before we used to live in the city but now we live where we can hear the birds and see the stars”.  Nothing like hearing words like those to melt your heart and know you made a good choice.

I have posted about canvases before but since I had the recent canvas contest I thought I would post again!  Canvases are a WONDERFUL way for you to have truly beautiful artwork in your home at a fraction of the cost of framed paintings – not to mention WAY prettier since it most often showcases your own family!  I have a number of canvases on the walls of my house and people ALWAYS comment and admire them.  Canvases come in virtually ANY size you wish and look even better when they are grouped in bunches.  Recently I have noticed all sorts of consumer companies starting to sell canvases.  PLEASE USE CAUTION when purchasing canvas prints from places such as Costco or Walmart – the quality is just not that great.  The backs of the canvases are not finished and the edges are often not even fully wrapped around instead only stapled along the sides of the canvas then covered over with what appears to be black canvas-like tape!!!  I use a wonderful company who takes the utmost of care in producing a truly heirloom product.  Every canvas is finished off with hangers and perfect corners.  There is a UV coating on the front so that the light will not fade your print and the weave of the canvas is tight enough that you will only see a slight texture.   Here are some photos of the most recent canvases purchased by clients.
