bennett {langley newborn photography}

Meet baby Bennett. On the day of this session, little Benny was just one day shy of his due date, but already nine days old! This little guy's parents, Mark + Stephanie (you can check out their maternity session here ) were so relaxed and cozied in with their little man. I'm pretty sure Steph was born to be a momma...you are such a natural!!!!!
I really do love newborns. As a first time mom, I can honestly say my newborn terrified me; but after five years and three babies of my own, I absolutely love getting my hands on their teeny tiny newness.
Bennett was no exception. His little cheeks were impossibly soft and he drifted to sleep with just a few moments of rocking. And the little angel slept...and slept and slept. Definitely one of the most sleepy little babes I've ever photographed.
To the new little family ~ Thank you for having me in your home, for sharing Bennett's story with me and letting me snag some sweet cuddles with your little man. And thanks for the gummy worms too :)

tom + tracy {vancouver wedding photography}

Family and friends streamed in from across the city and around the world to celebrate the love of this couple. It was the pinnacle of a love story that began when Tom put a rose into a Tracy's locker back in high school. I love stories that start like that.
I have heard a number of photographers share that the reception is their least favourite part of the wedding. I have to disagree. I love hunkering down with my camera, and listening to the speeches and stories that are the heritage of a couple I have spent the day photographing. It's pretty natural for me to get caught up in the intimacy and emotion, sharing tears and laughter with those around me. This wedding was a perfect example. As the speeches continued and words of love and blessing were offered, I once again felt I gained a greater understanding of Tom + Tracy; of how beloved and special they are to their families, their friends and ultimately each other. And the food was pretty great too! Really now, what's not to love about receptions!?
Tom + Tracy ~ Thank you for the opportunity to share in your day! We wish you every joy and happiness as you begin your lives together...married!!!!
