I’ve known this Momma since I moved to Kelowna and I have been fortunate enough to get to know her and see her family grow. Her adorable little boys are the sweetest little things you’ll ever lay your eyes on! Lisa is actually one of the most beautiful people I know – inside and out, by a long shot!
It’s people like Lisa and her family that keep me doing what I’m doing. I actually have the best job!
For the Brown’s session, we adventured around Knox Mountain on what should have been a cool fall day, but ended up being a warm summer day! I guess that being a Kelowna Family Photographer means that I have to be ready for fall or summer at any given moment between August and October!
Oh the joys of being a Kelowna Newborn Photographer…
Mainly… snuggling babies. But also, meeting their siblings and seeing the love they have for their new baby. These two sweeties LOVED snuggling their little brother. At first, they were hesitant but once they got used to it, they did not want to put him down. It was ridiculously adorable!
I might be biased, having two August babies of my own, BUT…. August / early September are the best times to have a baby. In all seriousness, the weather is getting cooler and snuggling a newborn is the best feeling!
A lot of playing, a lot of snuggling, hugging, kissing, being silly, playing games… that is basically what a family photography session looks like with me. You may even get a couple of terrible jokes! And let’s not forget crying toddlers and panicked parents and said toddler lunges towards the lake.
All in all, it’s a bunch of fun and being a Kelowna Family Photographer is the best!
Enjoy these images of this sweet and silly family!
I am fairly certain that being a Kelowna Newborn Photographer, I get to snuggle the sweetest little babies in the city!
Give me all the babies!!
Kelly is a dear friend of mine and she has two beautiful boys. Little Max decided to come an entire month early and gave his parents a wee scare. Thankfully, Max is a healthy little man (and absolutely adorable!).
Big brother Jake was an absolute gem with his new little brother – honestly, I don’t think I’ve seen anything cuter.
The best thing about being a Kelowna Newborn Photographer? Just take a little look at this sweet baby boy and you’ll understand. Oh, and his smell. I wish you could all smell that newborn baby smell through the computer screen because IT. IS. GLORIOUS.
I made my way over to this beautiful family’s home for their in-home newborn session. They were unable to get newborn portraits done immediately after their little man was born, so believe it or not, he was almost a month old when this session took place. You would never know it because he was still less than 8lbs and slept like a dream!
To be completely honest, I could’ve photographed this little guy all day long!
While we are on the topic, let’s talk about in-home newborn photography sessions…. if you’re expecting and are on the fence about having an in-studio or in-home session, here are some reasons why your home might make the perfect location:
You don’t have to leave your home.
You are the most comfortable and stress-free in your own home. Leaving the house with a newborn can be a lot of work and can feel very stressful.
You still have time to get ready if I arrive and you aren’t quite camera-ready.
No packing a diaper bag.
Feeding and changing the baby in the comfort of your own home.
No car rides with a newborn (and if your newborn is like 2 of my 3 newborns, this is the best reason to have an in-home newborn photography session).
You can’t forget anything that you may have wanted to use for the portrait session.
You can have your baby’s nursery documented.
The images you choose to display in your home will already match your decor!
If you still need some convincing… just take a look at these images!
Often times, children don’t want to have their photographs taken. But if you make them love you, they will let you take their portrait! During this session, I gave piggybacks, raced, rolled around on the ground, went on a Bear Hunt, let the kids take pictures, and I even wiped some noses. After a small incident involving a dog and an adorable little girl, the session was under way and we were having fun!
I know Laura through the wedding industry – she is an incredible wedding planner and owner of English Rose Weddings. She’s the best to work with at weddings and behind the camera!
Thanks for letting me hang out with your adorable family, Laura!
I can’t say how many warm and fuzzies I feel when a previous client comes back to document another milestone. Krista, Ivan and I met when they were expecting their first little one, Sloan, whose adorableness you can see below. The last time I saw her, she was a week old!!
She likes dirt, rocks, getting white dresses dirty, smiling, saying “awww done!”, being independent, giving kisses and also, giving more hugs and kisses. She’s SUCH a sweetie and she’s going to make an amazing big sister to a little brother in a few short weeks!
Congratulations Krista and Ivan! I can’t wait to meet baby Dorie!
This one is an adorable family session and you will not even be able to handle all the cuteness. Or the Browns’ sense of fashion.
Lisa is my go-to gal when looking for a new meal plan, which is basically the only way I can eat healthy all of the time. If I’m not following a plan, it’s just way too easy to get off track. She even obliges my “no beans” requests.
Take a peek below and embrace the adorableness! And the light… the pretty, pretty light. Embrace that too.
Anf little man H. He’s the cutest thing you’ll ever see!
