Winter Minis, Tree Farm Sessions

This year’s Winter Sessions took place at the amazing Christmas tree farm, Middlemiss Farms in the beautiful (and SUNNY yay!) countryside of Glenora. Who doesn’t love tree farm photos? I loved how clients outfits, especially ones with red, looked amongst the greens from the trees.

Family Mini Beach Session, Cowichan Bay

Every time I meet this family for photos, it’s always so fun and casual. We’ve gotten to know each other well and being comfortable with each other makes the session go so smooth. It’s amazing to see (and capture) their daughter as she grows and that love and connection they have with her. Thanks R+J for being you and so AWESOME!

Family Mini Beach Session, Chemainus

This family was so cute! AND nice! I met them recently at Kinsmen Park Beach in Chemainus for a Family Mini Session. It was calling for a low-tide, and although it wasn't as low as we hoped, we still had fun playing on the beach. It's definitely one of my favourite places to take families.

Summer Minis, Lavender Farm Sessions

This year marked my third year offering family sessions at the Cowichan Valley Lavender Farm and Labyrinth on Wicks Road in Duncan. I fell in love with the farm the first time I visited it and I got really lucky to get to know the owners, who are extremely nice and outgoing people. Each year I take some photos of the lavender and their kids for them as well. This year, I decided to cut back on how many families I would take on for these lavender sessions.

Family Mini Beach Sessions, Port Renfrew

I decided some time during the winter I would love to offer a day of sessions in Port Renfrew in the spring/summer. Sometimes when I get these ideas, I don't always have time to follow through with them, or even sometimes the idea isn't as great as I thought. However, I did follow through and everything worked out so well that I am going to do it all over again next year, around the same time in June.

Family Mini Spring Session, Maple Bay Manor

I snuck in Lori and her family for a Family Mini Session recently at the beautiful Maple Bay Manor. This time I utilized the forest and field and it didn't disappoint. Their daughter was so sweet and I loved all the snuggles, butterfly kisses and especially the love for baby in mommy's tummy, due to arrive soon! What a gorgeous family!

Family Mini Beach Sessions

I had so much sand in my car after these sessions, even in my hair! And I'm sure my clients did too. BUT it was so worth it. I had two families booked originally for mini sessions and they both requested beach photos, so I turned it into a beach day of sessions, even sneaking in a Motherhood (beach) Session with a great client of mine and her boys.

Motherhood Minis, Night Song Farm

If you know me, or you follow me on social media, you will FOR SURE already know I love photographing flowers. So, naturally Night Song Farm (a beautiful floral farm in Glenora with hundreds of varieties) has been on my list of locations to shoot at for some time. A friend who lives in the area actually told me about it and when I visited the first time, I was immediately drawn in to its quaint, but gorgeous atmosphere, especially the area as soon as you open the gate and walk in.

Spring Session, The Feltrin Family

The cutest, sweetest family award goes to..... these guys. OK well I always say all my families are the cutest and the best, but I truly mean it every time. Scarlett and Kurt and their girls are really great friends of ours and I was super excited to capture photos for them, especially since the girls are comfortable with me and know me so well.

Spring Minis, Maple Bay Manor

Maple Bay Manor has become one of my favourite places to visit. Not only is it gorgeous and looking pretty spectacular right now in its Spring glory (I would love to stay a night or two, or three...as a getaway), the owner Lynn is so cheery and nice. I captured two family mini sessions recently at the manor (more sessions to come!) and had fun exploring the different scenes around the property.

Winter Minis, Bird's Eye Cove Farm

Let me start this post by saying how lucky I am to have had such great clients and fun kids for this year's Winter Minis. I had eight families (almost 20 children) all in one day. I was worried it would be hectic, however this year I asked my amazing cousin to tag along with me and that sure made a huge difference having her helping (so big THANKS to Leah).

Fall Minis, Maple Bay Manor

Many photographers have been talking about how vibrant the colours have been this Fall. It's true the pigment in the leaves has been so rich which I have been very thankful for, especially looking through the images of this year's Fall family mini sessions. Fall is a time of the year where I often remember to feel and voice my thankfulness more often.

Summer Minis, Lavender Farm Sessions

Who doesn't love lavender? Well I sure am obsessed with it and holding sessions at the local lavender farm was a must last year. I was excited when the owners, Greg and Aurora Douglas welcomed me back this year (and they also said next year we're a go too, wahoo!). I met the families in the evenings just as the sun was starting to set and the sessions were super fun. There were a total of 12 kids I photographed (one family didn't wish to have any photos shared on social media of their little girl).

Spring Minis, Family + Motherhood

We waited for what felt like forever for Spring to finally settle in and even then there were super chilly evenings and mornings. However, I persevered and still offered two weekends of Spring Mini Sessions, with a family option and motherhood option, and couldn't be more thrilled with the outcome.
