• 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 (2018)

Sleeklens Portrait Perfect Collection Photoshop Workflow Actions

I was contacted awhile back to see if I would be interested in trying out actions by Sleeklens on some of my images.  I am always looking for new ways to speed up my work flow to enhance the photos that I take.  I am amazed at how these images have transformed my work into beautiful art that my clients can hang on their walls.  The Portrait Perfect Collection is simple to use and gives the ability to add a little or a lot to your photos.  The how to video was very explanatory and made using these images quick and easy. I have used many photoshop actions from various sources in my photography business but these by far are my favourite for my outdoor sessions! Here are just a sample of what they can do! Check out the tutorials, lightroom presetsand pinterest too! 

 

Jessie & Jake :: Fall Family 2017 {Kelowna Family Photography}

It is hard to believe it has been almost 2 years since I met these kiddos at Jake’s newborn session. Jessie is almost 4 and Jake almost 2, and today we met up to capture some fall memories with mom. Jake is a mover for sure and loves to follow his big sister around. Jessie is a sweetie and seems to love her baby brother.  My original choice for location was super windy so we ventured to a different area of one of my fave locations and there wasn’t even a breath of wind. The fall colours are here and I love mom’s choices for outfits for our session. Thank you Tanya for having me once again capture images of your beautiful little family. 

Baby Heidi :: 7 Days Newborn {Penticton Newborn Photograpy}

This sweet baby girl just happens to have the same name as me.  When I told big brother Colton what my name was he was really surprised! Heidi was born September 28th and weighed 8 lbs 11 oz and today at her Dr. appt she was already back to the exact weight.  Colton is 4 which made our sibling images so easy. Most siblings that come are 2 or under which means I usually have to work pretty hard to accomplish them. Colton loves his baby sister for sure.  Heidi slept for the first half of our time together and overall was a sweet little model.  Thank you mom and dad for letting me capture these special memories of your sweet kids. 

Shera & Jim :: Expecting {Summerland Maternity Photographer}{Summerland Family Photographer}

Shera and Jim are awaiting the arrival of baby number 2 early this November. Today we ventured out with nearly two year old Cullen to capture some memories of this soon to be family of 4.  With looming dark clouds earlier in the day, the sun decided to come out for our session. Cullen will be two in a couple of weeks and like most 2 year olds, “no” was his favourite word today. He loves fruit snacks and thankfully they worked to get him in our images. Little did he know it was all a trick. Thank you Shera and Jim for choosing me to document this exciting time in your family. I look forward to meeting your new little one when he or she makes their appearance. Here are just a few images from our session today….enjoy!

Rosie :: One Year-Fall 2017 {Kelowna Family Photographer} {Kelowna Baby and Children’s Photographer}

Yesterday Rosie brought mom and dad to see me so they could capture some fall family memories. I first photographed Rosie in studio back in May as a 7 month old. She was so happy and smiley. At one year, Rosie is still a super smiley baby. She isn’t yet walking but can get anywhere butt scooting. She is super flexible too.  Rosie didn’t love being held as she preferred to be on the move and explore the new ground. Bosco, their 3yr old poodle joined us as he too is part of the family. It was funny how he wasn’t keen on my lens pointing towards him. I did capture this one image though. Thank you Megan and Ted for making your way down the valley to see me. Here is a little sample from our session together.
