Family Portrait Photographer, Victoria BC

On September 6th, Cynthia & Matt welcomed baby Lily to the world. Almost 2 weeks later, we met at the same place we did their maternity session, to capture some images of them as a new family.
These are just a few of my favorites...

Stay tuned for the solo images of little Miss Lily that will go up later this week.

Tadpole vs Worm - Week 8

Family Portrait Photographer, Victoria BC

Yesterday was the sneak-peek, today is the full post :)

My brother introduced me to them, and I've known this couple for a few years now. Despite the fact that we used to only live a few minutes apart, this was my first time seeing them since they welcomed Audrey, their 8 month old baby girl.
On Saturday, Colleen, Ben & baby Audrey met me at Royal Roads for some fun family portraits. The forecast called for rain, but despite the clouds, it was warm and sunny!

At first Audrey wasn't too sure about the crazy lady with the black box stuck to her face, but she warmed up to me and I think we got some good stuff.

Ben & Colleen, it was so great to see you again - I'm thrilled to have finally met your adorable little girl! On with the photos...

These are my two favorites from the day:

LOVE that last one... she got right into the posing... such a little model :)

Tadpole Smirk

I was so torn yesterday... do I post a Worm smirk? Or a Tadpole smirk?
In the end, Worm won out, and I'm still not sure if I made the right decision.
That being said, today is Tadpole's turn, even if I can't enter it in the iheartfaces contest.

One Sunday morning, Mister was doing some work outside. Tadpole, being the Daddy's boy that he is, had to be at Mister's heels.
Still in his pajammy's, here's my adorable little boy... wearing his safety goggles, ear muffs, and holding his Daddy's (unplugged) drill...

Such a boy :)

iheartfaces - Week 38: Smirk

When I saw the iheartfaces contest theme this week, I was really excited! Little Worm is all about the smirk... but man-oh-man... it's nearly impossible to catch with a camera. WAY more difficult than I had anticipated!
That being said, this image comes pretty darn close to the smirk we see so often. It takes work to get our serious Worm to smile, and it's always preceded by the most adorable little smirk.

Check out the rest of this weeks smirkalicous entries this week at iheartfaces.

PS - Tomorrow on the blog - Tadpole's turn to smirk! I'm not allowed to enter more than one photo in the contest, but I can still share another cute photo with the same theme :)

Tadpole's Turn

Little Worm had his picture taken in a Tonka truck... so Tadpole wanted a turn too. We used his big truck for these few - and for the first time in a long time, he was LOVING posing for the camera.

iheartfaces - Week 37: Vroom, Vroom

The iheartfaces contest theme this week is "Vroom, Vroom". Our images have to contain a vehicle of some kind, in addition to a face.
Since he was born, Mister has wanted me to take a photo of Worm in one of his big brother's Tonka trucks. We gave it a shot on Sunday morning - but Little Worm was feeling less than cooperative. This was the best we could achieve...

He's still pretty darn cute - but then again, I'm biased :)
Head over to iheartfaces to see the rest of this weeks entries.

Tadpole's hockey helmet toque

Worm is sleeping sweetly in his bed. Tadpole is quietly singing to his stuffed animal friends as he wakes up. And I'm lying on the couch feeling sorry for myself, suffering with a doozie of a cold.
While curled up under a blanket, I started going through some photos of Tadpole from earlier this year. I don't think I've posted them yet, so I'll do it today.

Here's Tadpole in Feb (I think). Such a fun kid!

Rocks at the Lake

Last week I posted a photo of Tadpole and Mister, throwing rocks into the lake.
Today's images are from the same time but they're closer up. Tadpole loves going to the water - it's the only time he's allowed to throw rocks.

Tadpole vs Worm - Week 4

Thursday, September 2, 2010


From the day he was born, Tadpole has had some CRAZY long eyelashes. He gets more comments about his eyes than any other things all combined.
Worm wasn't born with the same long, dark lashes. But in the last week or so, Mister and I have noticed that they're starting to grow. Which is weird to me. I didn't realize that eyelashes would change.
Anyways, my Dad got a great image of Tadpole's eyelashes when he was about Worm's age, so I knew I had to try to get one of Worm's too.
They're still not as spectacular as his big brother's, but they're more than enough to make a lot of females jealous...
