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.
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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!
Everyday I am reminded how tightly knit the world of Victoria can be. It’s part of what makes me love my city. Friends, colleagues and family all seem to overlap in fun and interesting ways.
Three years ago I was introduced to a fabulous woman through my work with a local community support provider. Her support for both myself, the entire staff, and all the clients we supported was invaluable and I was sorry to leave her behind as I moved on to new opportunities.
Luckily for me, the small world nature of Victoria intervened. Through overlapping community involvement, I was able to reconnect with Karen and meet some of her incredible family as well. I was honored and excited to spend time in their home, capturing the amazing bond that ties them together. Their daughter, Andrea, is an incredible woman full of spirit and endless stories.
Thank you for the short but fun glimpse into your world.
