Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean we can’t find ways to get all warm and fuzzy, and this winter family shoot was chock-full of the warm and fuzzies. I met Natalie at a girl’s night at Moxie’s here in Kelowna. She was one Yuriko’s (Vintage Origami) past brides and was in need of a night out. We hit it off right away and immediately stated to plan a winter family shoot.
We met at a location that the family frequently visits to go on hikes.
It’s rare to have a perfectly happy baby the entire duration of a photo shoot, but this little one was an absolute angel – smiling the whole time. Even though it was a little ...
Part of being the best photographer you can be is by learning, experimenting, and challenging yourself to try new things. So that’s why when I saw that Fiona Hook from Image Studios was offering a class on family, maternity and newborns I jumped on it. Fiona is truly a great person, warm, inviting and informative – the perfect combination for a photography instructor.
The day started at 10:00am with introductions of the other students, where they were from and how they got into photography.

Well it all started with this little guy a year and a few months ago, my first maternity has turned into my first photo shoot of a cake smash. I was worried that he wouldn’t let me take the photos his mom and I had planned, but to our surprise it couldn’t have gone better. Mack had a smashing good time at this first birthday, and I’m glad that I got to be apart of it – happy birthday little man.

I consider myself a lucky photographer to have worked with such an easygoing family as the Wells family. Jacob was a little shy at first; as I find every little one is, but warmed up quite quickly. Actual I wondered where he kept getting these hidden pockets of energy from. Independent and quick to give me that classic Jacob grin.
The session was cut a little short due to a missed nap, but the Wells family was a great help to get in all the shots that I did.
Thanks again Tanya, Jacob & family for a wonderful fall photo shoot.
