Carmen and Brad wanted some photos to celebrate their fifth anniversary as a couple. They chose their first apartment together as the location, which I love because it’s so personal. Plus, their place is super stylish and bright. And they’re pretty cute together too.

I met Renee and Matt a couple of years ago at a wedding I was photographing. I loved how adorable they were together and how much fun they were having. Below is a photo I caught of them during cocktail hour.
So I was pretty psyched when they asked me to photograph their wedding and I’m just as excited about this engagement session. I met them at the start of my rainy day in Vancouver and they decided to stay inside their apartment for the shoot. I love in-home sessions because they show what people’s lives are really like in a space that means a lot to them. This is especially true for these two since they say they love hanging out at home together. They made some coffee and worked on creating a new cocktail together.
Renee bought Matt this shirt at a thrift store and I really like it. When Renee went to change into her dress, I noticed something on the elbow. Oh, it was just a bit of a tear, which neither of them had noticed.
Wrapping up my series of family documentary sessions with fellow photographers is an evening shoot with food photographer Elizabeth Nyland‘s family. Of course, they did some baking, since Elizabeth is an awesome chef (and cookbook author). The kids were pretty into it too. Then they played a couple of rounds of Sushi Go and heading outside for some trampolining until the cookies were ready.
I photographed another fellow photographer’s family this spring, the lovely Jenny Hindley. It was really fun getting to know her better and meet her husband and two kids. This family is pretty busy usually, so this was a rare afternoon at home, but it was an accurate snapshot of the love they all have for each other and the total silliness that results. So much happened in the three hours we spent together, so check it out below.
Back in spring, I enjoyed spending a couple of hours with fellow photographer Maryam‘s family in their home. She takes a lot of photos of her adorable boys, and of course her husband, but it’s nice to be able to give them some photos with all four of them (and their dog too). I took a ton of photos of the boys, as expected, because they’re so cute and lively. This one little family went through so many activities and emotions in just a couple of hours. I’ll let the photos tell you the rest.
