• Fall and Winter Sessions Now Booking

    Thank you for stopping by....
    I feel totally blessed by the many beautiful expectant parents, newborns, children and families that choose me to document so many important milestones. Your support continues to amaze me and I am looking forward to another great year! If you are pregnant and looking for maternity/newborn photos I suggest you contact me early in your pregnancy to secure a session around your due date. My new studio, located in downtown Summerland offers beautiful natural light, and a space for tired parents to relax and watch me create timeless newborn memories. I am currently booking newborn sessions from October to March (2017)

Everett James Richard :: 7 Days Newborn {Summerland Newborn Photography}

This newborn session was booked yesterday! I am so thrilled that I had a free day today to spend with the cutest little man. Everett was born on May 10th and weighed 8lbs 3.5oz. He has the softest, most flawless newborn skin! Mom says he usually sleeps most of the time and falls asleep after feeds but he must have thought our session was going to be way to much fun to miss, so he wanted to be awake for it. Even awake he was super chill. Big brother Keegan joined us at the start and being just 21 months old, wasn’t super interested in photos with his new baby. I did manage to get this one though and I think it is a keeper for sure. Thank you so much Pam and Trevor for trusting me with Everett’s newborn memories. I enjoyed getting to know your little family.

Resener Family :: Spring 2017 {Kelowna Family Photographer}

With dark clouds and a storm that blew in 30 minutes prior to our session we were still able to get our shoot done before the rain drops started. No sooner was I in my car to leave and the rain began.  Amanda, CJ and their sweet three year old daughter Alyse made their way from Kelowna to one of my favourite blossoming apple orchards for their family session. I first met this sweet family back in June of 2014 for their newborn session.  Alyse had a head of dark hair and from the looks of her images I am pretty sure she was an easy little client. She is going to be three at the end of May and now has an amazing head of curls. She was a little reserved at the beginning but near the end I got to see her true personality emerge. Thank you Amanda and CJ for having me document these family memories for you. I hope you are having a great Mother’s day! Here are a few from our time together, enjoy!

Cassy & Mike :: Engaged {Kelowna Couples Photographer}

I have know Cassy since she was just a new graduate nurse, and we now both work together in the perinatal unit at KGH.  Although Cassy and Mike got engaged at Christmas,  tonight we met up to capture some engagement photos with a little twist. As a rule I don’t do engagement photos but these were right up my alley. The weather was the warmest it has been all spring and the orchard blossoms were in full bloom. Ellie joined in on our session and was very excited to be able to be in some photos. If you look real close you will understand why. Thanks Cassy and Mike for  having me document this exciting time in your lives. I am excited for our upcoming shoot this November!

Congratulations Mike and Cassy.

Dancer Life :: Okanagan Dance Photographer

It has been awhile since I have done a shoot purely for me and I have wanted to do a shoot like this for a long time. These two girls of mine have a shared passion and love of dance.  I am in awe at what they can do and their dances take my breath away. Brooklyn lives and breathes dance and I often find her in her pointe shoes practising in the living room. She is constantly tapping (even though she doesn’t take tap classes). She admires her big sister and is constantly pushing her self to keep up. Avery is a natural and I love watching her on stage.  We have just wrapped up two back to back dance competitions and both girls are sad they are over. I am excited to see what next year brings.  As it is finally spring (I think) and the trees are in bloom, we had to take full advantage tonight. I am super thrilled with what we came up with.  All images were chosen and approved!
