Baby Khloe | Vancouver Island Baby Photography

A few weeks back I was visiting the Island and had the chance to meet my Mum’s friend, Anne and her incredibly sweet baby Khloe. I believe she was a month old here, and at just over 4 lbs at birth, she was still super tiny. Although she was awake much of the time and I could have stayed ALL day long….. it was still great to have a quick session and capture her teeny, tiny sweetness. Thank you for having me over!

enjoy!

Miss Gee and her Babes.

Sometimes there’s nothing better than a last minute quickie session to take the pressure off of planning for a shoot – and instead put the focus on fun. Lindsay is a fellow (amazing) photographer and also great friend….so to change up the girls playdate a bit I convinced her to meet at the studio for a quick session. I think it’s fair to say it paid off.  We knew it would – she and her girls are always incredible to photograph…check out her past sessions here and here and you’ll see we speak the truth. And you’d never even know that two other little girlies ( mine) were running in front of the frame, spilling food and basically wreaking havoc while these were captured. Thankful you came by Miss Gee – and hope you adore these as much as we do…

enjoy!

Baby Eliza | South Okanagan Newborn Photography

This sweet babe was our first girl in the studio in quite some time….and we soaked up every second of having her there. Not much can top photographing a brand new, tiny baby – except when big brother and Mum decide to get in front of our cameras as well. We hope this inspires more new Mamas to do the same….there’s nothing quite as special, and it’s one of those things we never regret doing.

Enjoy!

Kylie | Okanagan Maternity Photography

When a bride calls to announce she is expecting and must step in front of our cameras…we cannot help but jump for joy.  hehe.  Something about living each of these special moments and capturing them forever, well…its simply unbeatable.  And with the cold outside, sneaking into the White Linen studio was the perfect solution.  Simple, beautiful and all about that fabulous belly.

Kylie…could you be more stunning?  Eeeep.  We cannot wait to meet your wee one…

**updated** the little ‘miss’ has arrived and she is perfect!

enjoy.

Luke + Erin | Fun + Elegant Okanagan Wedding Day

You know when you meet a couple at their engagement session and you cant help but gush over how adorable they are together…its going to be an amazing wedding day.

2013 was a year filled with fabulous weddings and equally fabulous people.  These two love birds were married in Summerland, BC at the Summerland Resort…the perfect backdrop for their day.  Erin left no detail untouched, right down to the personally wrapped tissues and the custom beanbag board…truly you could feel the love that was put into every bit of the day.  Of course the details were not the only love you could feel, it was easy to see that these two adore each other and we are so thrilled to have been a part of every moment.

Sometimes we think we are just too lucky.  We are so thankful to capture these moments…

enjoy.

What was the most memorable part of your day?
The ceremony – personal vows, spectacular setting, technology-free audience, and a very handsome man standing across from me. The other part was our first dance. We entered the reception and immediately danced. The whole crowd clapped along with our song (Home by Edward Sharpe), it was magical.

Any advice for those getting married in the future?
Love every minute and make it custom. So many of our details were so personal to Luke and I – our wedding was very ‘us’.

If you could do it all over again, would you change anything?
NOTHING. It was perfect. (*if I had an additional $5K I would have also hired a videographer)

What was your favorite wedding day purchase?
Custom Bean Bag toss is definitely up there… unlike our attire – this will be enjoyed for years and years to come. I also loved my sash and headband… I have a ‘small’ headband collection, so the custom headband was a nice way to tie in one of my favourite accessories and the ribbon that both the sash and headband were from was AMAZING.  Mokuba in Toronto has the nicest ribbon anywhere, hands down.

We always love when our brides (and grooms) share little bits from the day.  Big thanks to Erin & Luke for taking the time!
