Summer has seems like a distant memory here in Tsawwassen now that the rain has moved in. It was only a couple weeks ago I was watching the sunset at Centennial Beach with the Wilson family taking their photos. As a South Delta photographer I love the summer for family portraits but I am excited to be moving into the fall for some fall foliage.

It was a blast taking photos with the Wilson family in Boundary Bay. It was a perfect summer evening and the sunset was cotton candy skies. It was an easy breezy photo session. So much family love. The poses came as natural as all the laughs we had.


Ladner Harbour Park in South Delta has always been my go to fall photos. When the inquiring family asked for suggestions for a 'woods' look in South Delta, Ladner Harbour Park immediately popped to mind. The light coming through the trees was oh so dreamy it is now one of my favourite summer locations to take photos in Delta!

The family gifted their Grandma a photo session of her 5 granddaughters for Christmas. 5 girls ages 7-16, a photographers dream! The cousin connection these girls had made for a breezy, easy and loving session. Melt. My. Heart.


Another beautiful night in sunny Tsawwassen for a family portrait session! I feel like I say it all the time, but I LOVE living here! Centennial Beach never disappoints for dreamy sunsets and crystal water - perfect for family photos. It is also a photographer bonus when the family shows up and the family is super adorable! 


I met this family in the dyke parking lot between Beach Grove and Boundary Bay in sunny Tsawwassen. This parking lot is full of bikers, joggers and birdwatchers. I immediately identified the family as they all looked way to good to be going for a casual dyke stroll :)

We took a walk down the Boundary Bay dyke to fields close by for their family pictures. We enjoyed the next hour playing, laughing and having the kids cuddle up on Mom and Dad. The family dynamic was sweet and relaxed. We had local bunnies hopping around to keep the kids entertained!

To the Koch family, thank you for allowing me to take your family photos! I had such a great time and I hope we can do it again soon!


It was a cold, rainy and windy evening in Tsawwassen on the day of this photoshoot. Being a photographer in Vancouver you come to embrace these conditions and make the best of them! You would never guess little Emily was cold, as long as she was cuddling and playing with her mom she was as happy as can be..

This is my go to location to take photos at Centennial Beach in South Delta. The beautiful Momma was rocking an Aritzia romper that seemed like it was made for her - just check out the back of it in the photos below! We had such a blast shooting (saying that I was the only one who had shoes on!), until we got rained out by torrential downpour and it was all worth it for these photos :)

5 Tips for your Spring Photoshoot

Hurray spring is FINALLY here! Spring in Delta is an amazing time to have your family photos done. The winter haze has lifted, the weather is getting better and the flowers are coming out. 

These 'tips and tricks' will help you prepare for your photo shoot. Tips from what to wear to how to prepare so your only job on photoshoot day is to be yourself, laugh a lot and let me capture photo's you will love forever. 


1.) Choosing a Time & Date

I love to begin all sessions 1-2 hours before the sunset during "the golden hour", when the light is the dreamiest. You can use an online- sunset calculator to determine the time of your scheduled sunset for the date and location you'd like to do your session. If you have younger kids you may consider early spring when the sun sets at an earlier time.


2.) Dress Up!

When it comes to wardrobe there is no such thing as being to dressed up. Ladies, always say yes to the dress! And men, closed toed shoes and fitted pants (no shorts!) photograph great.

Also, don't be afraid to have some fun! Have you ever wanted to rock a flower crown? Spring is the time!

3.) Choosing Clothes

Springtime is perfect for softer, lighter tones and more neutral shades. Soft shades of pink and blues to compliment creams, whites, browns and grey. The soft colour palette fits beautifully into almost all natural outdoor environments.

5.) Location

This one is up to you! I use natural light so my first choice is outdoors in wide open natural spaces. Feel free to think outside the box! I encourage you to brainstorm unique locations or somewhere you may have special access to. In spring you may consider a farm, a field of flowers or somewhere with an incredible view. Take a few minutes thinking and you may be surprised with where you come up with!

6.) Styling

If you would like to make your photos more unique and tell a bit of a story? Bring a little something extra! For spring think fresh flowers, a pretty blanket or picnic. You can incorporate larger items like a vintage bike or simple objects like a hat.


Ladner Portrait Session


This styled shoot had been in the books for weeks and I was so excited to be collaborating with so many amazing vendors. I picked up two dresses from Park & Fifth in Gastown on Friday and double checked everything was ready to go with Michelle at Luxe Events on Saturday. 

Saturday morning arrived and I heard a knock on my door. My two sisters came into my house with a video camera telling me they had rescheduled all my weekend shoots are were taking me downtown for the night for my surprise stagette! AMAZING! (thanks sisters!)

After a night out on the town, I was eager to get home so I could make this golden hour photoshoot happen.

All the talent who contributed to this shoot (Luxe Events, Ba Wedding Hair, Hair By Nikki, Emily Walker, Farmhouse Florals) were so amazing and flexible. Everything came together brilliantly and I couldn't be happier brining the stunning clay cliffs into a bridal shoot.


Last fall a friend approached me and asked if I could take her family photos because she had seem some photos I had posted on my personal Instagram. I had always loved photography and done it as a hobby my whole life but I had never thought of doing it professionally. I can honestly say her request sparked a passion that in the last year I turned into my career.

A year later she approached me again with the same request - fall family photos. It was a perfect fall evening to meet this beautiful family at Diefenbaker Park in Tsawwassen.

I am so thankful that I have found my passion and for the amazing people I meet everyday in doing it.

L + S Maternity Session

It was a pleasure to take photos for first time parents-to-be Lindsay and Scott. It was a perfectly clear summers night so we could catch the best lighting during golden hour.

Lilly Point in Point Roberts Washington was the perfect backdrop for these golden hour family photos. *Flower crowns made by the amazing Flowers Beautiful in Tsawwassen*.

Meg & Kev Anniversary Photos

These two wrote #couplegoals. They met before at Four Winds brewery for a pint to loosen up. Both Meghan and Kevin claimed to be a bit nervous but it didn't take more than 5 minutes to have them goofing around and getting right into it.

Collecting Sunday's Snow Day Photo Shoot

One thing that I love about photography is by using different angles and techniques you can make it look like like you are a million miles away. This snow day photo shoot with Blogger Briar Johnston of Collecting Sunday's was taken of her and her kids behind Winskill Park in Tsawwassen. 

Musoke Family Photo Shoot

A perfect fall day at the Ladner dog park for this family photo shoot. Newborn photos are fun when you mix in the family, outdoors and a dog!

Nia Dance - Brand Promotion

Newly certified Nia instructor Noelle Dufrane asked is I could come and take photos of her teaching her first teaching class in Granville Island. For those of you who don't know what Nia is, it is a combination of dance, martial arts, fitness and it brings in a spiritual aspect. It was amazing to watch the beautiful movements as world music blast in the background.
