Tis the season for family sessions! Now that all-but-one of my weddings are finished for the season (until the Spring!) I love spending time with some awesome families. Last week, I met Claire and Wes and their two sons, Noah and Samuel, by the river in Steveston Village. I photographed Claire and Wes on their wedding day over five years ago and I was thrilled to be hired for the fifth time to capture their family session. (P.S. If you want a blast from the past, you can view their engagement session, wedding day, maternity session and newborn session.)

I met Christie for the first time when we were both attending university in 2008 and we’ve been friends ever since! She was a bridesmaid in our wedding a few years ago and the year before that, I photographed her wedding to Dan. Earlier this year, they made the move from Langley to Kelowna. We happened to be in Kelowna for a weekend in June with friends and it was nice to see Christie & Dan again. The two couples we went with, both of the wives were pregnant, then there was Randy and I and Christie and Dan. Christie asked me, ‘Does being around so many of your pregnant friends make you want to be pregnant?’ I said ‘Nope! Not right now! Haha!’ I knew Christie and Dan were looking to start a family soon-ish… and when Christie texted me a couple months later to say, ‘We’re pregnant!’ turns out she already knew she was when she asked me that question. There were four couples there for dinner and three of them were pregnant, not just the two. ;)

A few years ago, I met Kaitlin through my friend Kelsey when we were both bridesmaids in her wedding! (Kelsey was then a bridesmaid in our wedding day, as well, only nine months later.) Through Kelsey and her husband Jon, we got to know Kaitlin and Jon a bit more with the six of us hanging out a couple of times. This year, Kaitlin and Jon moved within a 5 minute drive of us (instead of 25 minutes) and now we go to the same church, too. We really have enjoyed their friendship and even went away for two weekends together this summer. We were so excited for them when they told us they were pregnant last winter! And in September, they had their first baby, Ava. She’s so cute and I was really happy to get to photograph their family together. Enjoy!

I was super happy to receive an email from Chantal a few weeks ago, requesting family photos with her husband Dave, their two kids and her parents! I photographed Chantal and Dave’s engagement and wedding over six years ago. Now they have two beautiful kids, Grayson and Caitlyn! We met at Crescent Beach for some family photos yesterday morning on what was possibly the nicest day of Fall so far. It was perfect! I was happy to have their adorable puppy Sadie along for the ride, too. Enjoy!
