{L} Maternity Sneak Peek

This morning I had the pleasure of doing a maternity session at Aylard Park in East Sooke.  It was overcast and a pretty decent temperature, not too windy.  I'm so pleased with how the whole shoot went!  The expectant Mama was accompanied by her husband and little boy, so I was able to have them in some of the photos.  There are so many beautiful backdrops here, right on the ocean.

I hope the {L} family enjoys the photos as much as I do!  Here's a little peek at some of my favorites from the session!  Make sure you click the photo to enter full screen mode so the images are sharper. :)

The {B} Twins Sneak Peek

This past weekend, I was able to do my first twins session with a set of 6 month old baby girls.  It was a joy to be able to meet them (mom and dad, too!), and even though they didn't want to smile for all of the photos, they were troopers and I did manage to capture some cute shots!  Sometimes it's hard to get ONE baby to smile and look at the camera lots, let alone TWO!  It made for a fun and interesting afternoon.  Thanks for having me come to do the session, and I look forward to the fall when they turn 1!

(Be sure to click on the photos to enter full-screen mode so they're nice and sharp).

Love the last one, she's so tuckered out after a big afternoon of photo-taking! :)

I hope you enjoy the photos, {B} family!

The {R} Family Sneak Peek

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to do a couple of photo shoots.  It was Easter Sunday, and these guys apparently never have a chance to get all together - so I had no trouble escaping my house for a few hours in the afternoon to take a nice drive up Island a bit and do the shoots.  The weather was perfect - it was 18 degrees and bright overcast - great for outdoor photography.  The second was the second half of baby bulldog Ella.  I haven't had a chance to get to editing many of the family, or any of Ella yet, but they are coming soon!

So without further adieu, here's a little sneak peak of the {R} family!  (Be sure to click on the first photo so you can view them in a bigger size - they're much more clear that way!)

Upcoming Shoots and Other Fun Stuff!

I just thought I'd pop on and share how excited I am to be doing a couple of photo sessions tomorrow!  Although it's Easter, I agreed to take a little time in the afternoon to do a family photo shoot, and also to do the rest of little Ella's pet session!  It'll be a busy day for sure, but I'm really looking forward to getting out and doing these sessions!  I have a couple of cool shots in mind, so hopefully the weather cooperates and everything goes smoothly.

I've also been very lucky to have won a tonne of stuff, mostly in the way of newborn photography props from some amazing vendors!  I can't wait to see them on some cute little newborns!  I have some space available for newborn sessions in April and May, so be sure to contact me to get a great deal - I'm still offering FREE newborn shoots to a couple more clients out there! :)

It's taken what seems like a really long time to get to where I am right now in my photography business, and there's always lots to learn, and, as I'm finding, lots of helpful advice from other photographers.  There really is a lot that goes into starting a photography business, and a lot that goes on behind the scenes.  I'm having a lot of fun doing what I'm doing, and things are finally starting to get rolling for me!  I hope to keep up the momentum and get things rolling even more this year!  I'm now offering lifestyle photography sessions of all kinds - just click on my Pricing tab at the top to view my packages and prices.  And a thanks goes out to all the photographers who happily take the time to help newer photographers in various aspects of starting their businesses. :)

I'm still looking for a client to book my first From Belly to Baby package.  This is a very special package that includes three sessions, prints, a photobook, an online gallery, a cd of all the images, and 20 birth announcement cards.  I'm taking only a very limited amount of these packages this year, so please don't hesitate to contact me as soon as you have decided that you would like all three of these sessions done.  It's a great deal - individually, these sessions would run $600+, but with this package, you save $100.  PLUS, the first client to book the From Belly to Baby package with me gets it for 1/2 price - only $250!  Please see my Pricing tab for more details on this package.

Other specials I'm currently running include family sessions for only $100 until the end of April, and as mentioned above, free newborn sessions (cd of images is only $50).

Are you a photographer?  Be sure to check out my Crocheted Items for Sale tab and contact me to purchase any of the items!  I'm constantly adding more items, so check back often!

Hope everyone has a fantastic Easter weekend!

{Pets} Sneak Peek - Ella

I'm sort of doing a two-part session of this little cutie named Ella.  Yesterday I was able to snap up some shots of her whilst puppy-sitting.  She's only 3 months old, and so adorable!  Stay tuned for a few more from part 2 of her session!  In the meantime, here's a few favorites from yesterday!

It was lovely to have her visit for the day, and the kids loved her, as did our Bulldogge!  Looking forward to the rest of her session!

{Pets} Sneak Peek - Hunter

The weather was a bit back and forth yesterday, but I still managed to get out and do another photo shoot of a very handsome Hunter!  Several shots were taken in two different locations, and he loved every minute of it.  He's such a photogenic doggie!  I had a lot of fun with him and his owner, despite the occasional light rain.  Here are a few favorites from yesterday's session.

{Pets} Sneak Peek - Paws and Taz

I did a pet photo session yesterday afternoon with 2 of the most adorable and beautiful cats I've seen! It's different working with animals, but fun and unpredictable!  Here are a few of my favorites of this brother-sister duo.

In another week or so, I'll be doing another pet from the same home, a beautiful black lab named Hunter!  That will be an outdoor session - looking forward to it!
