I'm a wedding and portrait photographer living in Vancouver, BC with my husband Randy.  I photographed my first wedding when I was only 17 years old - and I've photographed over 200 weddings since! I am an avid bookworm, lover of green tea, pretty nail polish & my Labradoodle Harley. Thanks for visiting!

Shara & Lance & Laney & Clara: Portraits

March 24, 2010


I make no ifs, ands, or buts about it: I’m a wedding photographer. I feel like couples are my specialty and my focus–what I do best! However, as I’ve posted before, I make exceptions when I get super sweet emails like, “I know you’ll probably never want to do this… and I know family pictures aren’t as fun as couples but… would you be up for taking our family portraits?” It was the same sorta thing with Melissa+Jody’s session. HA! When I’m begged sometimes, just sometimes, I say yes. I kid. I don’t need to be begged: I just need to know that I’ll LOVE the shoot. I couldn’t say no to my cousin Lance, his wife Shara and their two gorgeous girls Laney & Clara! We had fun last week taking these.

I’ve photographed this family before, way back in February 2008! I can’t believe it was that long ago. Check it out HERE if you want to: but no judging! My photo skills weren’t quite up to par back then. Ha! Thanks for hiring me regardless, you guys. ;) Shara+Lance have a gorgeous property and we decided the best place for the shoot was their farmhouse. I love the first shot of some details in Shara’s kitchen: she always has such great style–even though she objected to me taking these! I think it’s pretty. I hope you get a feel for this family’s fun personality as you look through the images! Have a great Wednesday!

    Your best family session to date? Easily. The light is beautiful, I love how you rock the sun flare very gently. The first two of the family are gorgeous, Jamie.

    I agree, best family session to date! This family looks like they come straight out of a magazine. And I kinda want to frame those first two pictures in my house – I love those!

    Okay, AWESOME shots…..and if Lance isn’t related somehow to Lacey H then that is a freaky resemblance!

    Oh wow! Amazing shots! The first two pictures in the kitchen could look like a photo realistic render of 3D objects. These family pictures should be in a family magazine!
