And Baby Makes Three

I have been one of a great many people waiting in excitement to meet this precious little treasure. Her mother makes me smile every time we get together and I know she will have exactly the same power.

Watching her mom and dad in their unending joy as expecting, and now new, parents is the best part of spending time photographing their journey. This is one little girl who will be showered with crazy amount of love. I can’t wait to capture more of their exciting adventures together.IsabelleWeb-13

Brothers

I think on of my favourite things about family photography is the opportunity to watch families grow and change together.

I met this family during my photography school days. We have captured photos at least once a year since then and I have grown to love our times together. Taking and delivering their photos often includes coffee and playtime catch ups and becomes of highlight of my work week.  I can’t wait to see what great adventures these boys get up to together.

My heart is melting.

Well worth the wait…

Every year, when I attend the Lifetime Networks Gala, I have the pleasure of being greeted by an infectious smile and a promise that this is the year we will finally do a photo shoot. This year, my wait was finally over.  Having only met the mom of this family, I was unsure what kind of personalities would be walking onto the beach to meet me when the day finally arrived. I was so happy to encounter a whole family of huge grins, laughter from deep down in the belly, and a love for puns, teasing and general merriment. This family clearly loves each other, supports each other and adds in some good natured ribbing to keep things real. Definitely hope this isn’t my last shoot with this family, especially if they bring me boxes of candy each time we meet.

Love, laughter, and a whole lot of dancing…

Scott and Katy’s wedding on Pender Island was nonstop laughter and fun.  I am lucky to be friends with the bride and groom, and was thrilled when they asked me to photograph their special day.

Scott is known as a legendary party planner, and with Katy now part of the equation, they make an incredible team. Their choice of location, The Timbers on Pender, was stunning and created a magical backdrop to an unforgettable day. Every detail of their wedding included a personal touch; from the custom designed engagement ring, to the wedding favors now growing in each guest’s garden.

Photos with Scott always include a glimpse into his family history and his wedding day was no exception to the rule. I love the memories and stories woven into the background of each photo taken during our adventure around the island.

The wedding day ended with a live band and some spectacular dancing. This couple has an amazing network of family and friends, the most important elements for one amazing celebration.

It was the perfect weekend to celebrate the love of two fabulous people!

Family Love

One of my favourite things about photography is the chance to connect with people and to share in their life stories.

I photographed Melissa and Scott’s wedding and was so excited to hear the news that they were expecting a new addition to their family.  This baby is starting her life surrounded by love, laughter and a huge collection of people that adore her.  Welcome to the world Little One!

Time to catch up!

There has been a sad lack of updates to my blog over the past year.  This is not for lack of activity. So, for those of you that have missed my Facebook updates or don’t follow me on Twitter or Instagram, I am going to attempt to bring things up to date.

Since my last post there has been a lot of fun activities in the Razzle B Photography world; a wedding (or two), engagements, reunions, back to school fun, awesome events, karaoke, food, running around with pets, and some fun celebrations of family love. I have met some incredible new people, shed some tears, been inspired, seen some new places, reconnected with old friends, and have laughed a lot.

Here is a sneak preview of some of my highlights.

Family Trees

I love spending time with this family and, for just a moment, becoming a part of the stories that will be told at another of their reunions. Each visit is filled with good natured ribbing, a lot of laughter and huge amounts of affection for each other; even if it is hidden behind an elbow poke or accompanied with a shove from whatever perch I’ve made them balance on.

All visits to their home reveal new aspects of their family history; foundations of the first home, trees planted as saplings that now tower above the house, and view points that provide opportunities to explain the history of their property and the surrounding neighbourhood.

I can’t wait to get back again for the next reunion!

Big Family, Bigger Love

My work in the world of photography has given me the opportunity to meet some incredible people.  While visiting Campbell River, I had the privilege of meeting a big, wonderful family that recently grew just a little bit more.  Already a full house with 6 kids, this home welcomed in two more family members; two beautiful boys from Congo.

We started our shoot with a first trip to the beach.  Rain was falling and sea life was in short supply at our first stop so we moved on to brave more weather and find the elusive crabs.  Watching the boys squeal and jump with every new discovery at the next beach made the gloomy weather disappear (at least in our minds).  The older brothers and sisters all diligently searched under every rock, finding dozens of crabs to entertain the boys and a lifetime love of the ocean was quickly formed.

I was invited back for a warm up cup of cocoa after the shoot and fell in love with this family just a little bit more.  The house was full of chatter, affection and inspiration.  I immediately felt at home and was welcomed into the flock without a moment’s hesitation.

I look forward to the opportunity to follow this family as they grow together.  I see great things in their future.  I also really want more of their homemade, gluten free, chocolate chip cookies!
