Weddings | 2019

Hello!!

Today I have my first ENGAGEMENT SESSION of the year. Yes. ENGAGEMENT.

Recently I have had a lot of wedding inquiries. Being completely transparent with you all, weddings have always intimidated me, but also inspired me with their creativity, uniqueness + beauty. Weddings are a major life event so I feel overwhelmingly honoured to even be considered to be the one YOU choose to document your beautiful day.


I figured I’d make a post stating YES! I am taking on weddings this year, BUT I am being very specific with what I will take on. If you are getting married and your having a small wedding (50 and under) or elopement, I would love to chat with you, have you fill out my wedding inquiry form + set up an engagement session to ensure you like me and my style! (very important you actually like my style of work).

If you are interested in knowing what my packages look like, please email me at April.kaayk@gmail.com. I can’t wait to hear from you!

Thank you so much to everyone for the LOVE and SUPPORT. You are the reason I am able to pursue my dreams.

Christmas Tree Mini Sessions

Hello! Christmas is ALMOST here! Can you even believe it? I have been so busy over here with shoots and finishing up galleries before Christmas, but I just wanted to take a little time to showcase my 2018 Christmas Tree mini sessions.

I had so many beautiful families(14 to be exact) join me for my first year of Christmas Minis. It was a total success and I can not wait for next year! Before I show you some of my favourite  images, I just want to give a big shout out to the lovely people at Pine Meadows Tree Farm in Chilliwack BC for so graciously welcoming me and my clients this season.

         side note, my family picked out, cut down and brought our first ever real tree home this year. We LOVE it and will definitely be going back next year!

*I won’t be sharing images from all 14 sessions, as a few families have requested their images not be shared for privacy reasons! <3*


Wishing all my clients a wonderful Christmas and happy new year in 2019!

Venema

I have always loved and preferred the style and look of an in home newborn session. I absolutely love going into peoples homes and documenting these fleeting moments with their newborns.

The change a baby brings, whether its adjusting to life WITH a baby or life with multiples. It truly is a journey each time. Each baby brings a whole new life and meaning to your family. So, naturally whenever I get asked to do a newborn or fresh 48 session, I get super excited for two reasons, 1. BABIES! – thats a no brainer, I love babies, their smell, their feet and even their sweet little cries. Everything about them, I love 2. These sessions are a true testament to what life is like in their home together or their first moments in the hospital with their sweet new addition, which is why I love photography. I love to document the real.

Here are a few images from my recent session with The Venema family and their newest addition Katelyn.

Simmons Family

We couldn’t have picked a better day to have family photos booked with The Simmons. The weather was gorgeous and they were completely perfect. This cute family of 3 had so much love for each other, it wrapped me up and made me feel like I was apart of them!

Their little boy was just as cute as a button. I love seeing families interact together and how they love on their children! I know that some times photos can feel like a chore, trying to keep the kids from getting dirty or behaving, but I’m here telling you, all those things are ok, you don’t need to worry or stress about perfection. You’ll look back on these photos and think to yourself “this is exactly where we were and how life was and I miss these days.”

Here are a few favourites from our session
