Gorgeous horse and rider photo session at sunset

I recently had the pleasure of photographing Sophie and her adorable horse Fibby at the barn in Saanichton where Fibby lives. This was a first for me! I had never photographed horses professionally before and wasn’t sure what to expect.

I came prepared with all these awesome ideas, but quickly realized that Fibby had a ton of energy and was pretty much exactly like a toddler, wanting to do his own thing! Luckily, my years of experience of photographing families with toddlers came in super handy! Looking at these photos, you’d never think that Fibbs was not interested in posing for us or standing still even for a few seconds, and just wanted to eat all the grass!

All that said, I’m quite happy with how these photos turned out. And what a beauty Sophie is! Her choice of the red silk dress was perfect for this photo session. I adjusted my normal light and airy editing style to highlight the rich colour of her dress and her sun-kissed skin in the glowing evening light.

Sharing some of my favourites from this session!

Fun family photos at the beach — Victoria BC Photographers

We meet again! This was my second time photographing this cute family in two years. This time we met at the beach for some fun playful documentary photos! It was so nice to photograph this family again and get to see how the boys have grown in just one year!

Another fun surprise that I wasn’t aware of was that we happened to schedule the photo session on the date of this beautiful couple’s wedding anniversary! So I made sure to capture a few special photos of the two of them in addition to all of pictures of the boys and the family playing and having fun.

High School graduation portraits | Victoria BC family photographers

I recently had the privilege to photograph this special family at their home here in Victoria. They had their triplet children graduating from high school. The Dad has a Bachelor’s Degree in photography, so I knew how important photographs are in this family’s life. I definitely felt the pressure to deliver! 🙂

But these young people were a joy to work with, and they definitely made my job easy — I mean look at them! To say that these beautiful kids + their friends + dates looked stunning is an understatement!

This is such a special time in these kids’ lives, and it was an honour to be a part of this family’s celebration of such a big milestone. Their excitement for the future was palpable! I enjoyed hanging out with this fun bunch and capturing a variety of posed and fun/candid images around their home.

I hope that the future is bright, and that life holds many amazing moments and accomplishments for these beautiful youngsters!

Sweetest family at sunset

I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful family a few years ago, when their little girl was just a little peanut. It was so nice to reconnect with them again and see how their little princess is growing. 🙂 I love this family – they have such good energy about them every time I see them. It’s truly a pleasure working with such wonderful clients!

Winter family session

The day this family was scheduled for their photo session ended up being super cold and windy. The poor kiddos were freezing, so we cut the session short and decided to try again a couple of days later.

Well, I couldn’t have asked for a better scenario when we showed up to do their photos for the second time: it was a magical winter wonderland at their family property just outside of Victoria! We played in the snow, and then went inside for some snacks, snuggles and more playing.

They were such troopers, it was still cold out, but they played and had fun regardless, and we got lots of great shots! 🙂

Fall family session at the park

Fall is one of my favourite seasons, with the beautiful vibrant yellows, reds, and orange colours of leaves, scrumptious treats like pumpkin pie, hot cocoa, apple cider, and not to forget — pumpkin spice latte! Yummm! Something so cozy about fall! 🙂

I love doing fall photo sessions, and it was even more special in the case of this family. They live in Ecuador, and dad told me that they don’t have fall there. So, we were on a mission to give the kids the “Fall” experience!

Dad had made a big pile of leaves before I even got there, and the big brother had lots of fun collecting tons of acorns from under the oak trees, stashing them into dad’s pockets. I think they are taking them to Ecuador as a souvenir. 🙂
