Newborn – Logan

There is nothing better then an at home newborn session. It’s familiar, its comforting, its real life. I love going to peoples homes and capture these precious and fleeting moments with their newborns. 

This session was no exception..

anyone else adore baby feet? I LOVE their little toes!

Ps. Newborn sessions are a GREAT baby shower gift, and hey guess what –  I offer Gift Certificate 😉

Family sessions are so fun, you get a diversity within – a little bit of everyone, just the kids and a little bit of mom and dad. The whole reason the family started in the first place. I love being able to take them aside and do a few photos of just the two of them.

Lets be honest, since becoming parents you probably don’t  have many photos of just the two of you anymore. A lot of the time we as parents focus the photos on our children, but the truth is, we are just as important as they are. These photos are the ones THEY will look back on and see us. Parents, juggling life, love, children and all the in betweens.

Here are some of my favourites from a recent session with Krista, Colton and their boy Hudson.

Outdoor Cake Smash

With all this beautiful fall weather we have been having, I was able to do a outdoor cake smash… which I am absolutely in love with.

Next summer, if you need a cake smash and your wanting outside…give me a call because I can’t wait to do more like this one!

Well since I’m here, I might as well start up my next post!

We had a rainy, foggy family session at Cultus Lake. I think as a photographer, that is what fall photography dreams are made of. Oh and those glorious sunny crisp days that October brings. We have been so fortunate here in the Fraser Valley to have such mild and beautiful weather.

BUT if it can’t be sunny…this is what I want it too be…

(This is family…when we did a silly face, they all did the same one!!)

 

On a completely unrelated to this post side note, I just released the dates and times for my Christmas Mini sessions. They will be taking place on November 3rd and November 25th. If you are interested in finding out what time slots are available, please email me April.kaayk@gmail.com.

Photos will be at a Chilliwack Christmas Tree farm and a $20 non-refundable deposit is require upon booking your time slot.

Newborn Days

SO its a good things I’m not a full time blogger, because I’m TERRIBLE at it!
I have recently had a lot more traffic coming through my website, so I figured it would be a good idea to get some new content on here for people to look through.
What better way to have a fresh start then a NEWBORN session??

I took maternity photos for this beautiful family this summer and they are some of my most favourite images.

They are so fun, genuine and have amazing hearts. They recently welcomed a beautiful baby boy into their family so I figured I’d share some of their session on here!

I am absolutely loving this session!

In home newborn sessions are one of my favourite things. They are comfortable, intimate and completely genuine. These special days at home with your newborn can be exhausting and emotional, trying and exhilarating, but the beauty behind all that chaos is made up of these beautiful moments. Thank you Ferraro Family for welcoming me into your beautiful home to capture these special moments with your little boy Ben.

Fields of Lavender

I had the pleasure of spending some time with Kali, Miguel and Kingsley the other day. We ran through the most beautiful and fragrant fields of lavender. I wish I could bottle that smell and send it to everyone!

I LOVE capturing families and their real authentic moments together! These three pretended to be dinosaurs, watched airplanes fly above and listened to the bees buzz around the lavender!

 

Here are a few of my favourites from their session!
