Abbotsford Lifestyle Maternity Photography

It seems like every time I photograph this family, we have less and less of a plan.

Location. I suggested their newly renovated home. Their kitchen. Baking something?

Timing. Um. Well. We both had tomorrow morning available. If we squeeeeezed it in early enough, maybe our husbands would not be TOO grumpy about wasting a gorgeous sunshiney Saturday morning on photos.

Pancakes for breakfast!

We drove around the block to find some blossoms. This year has been such an incredible year for blossoms!

Rick & Jaclyn » Langley Wedding Photographer

The day started at Jaclyn’s parents home in Langley. Earlier in the month, Jaclyn and her family lost her mother to a 2-year long battle with cancer. Emotions were raw as memories flooded back. There were many special touches and precious keepsakes that made Caroline a part of the wedding day: a quilt made by one of Jaclyn’s aunts when Caroline began her journey with cancer – all the children’s and grandchildren’s names are stitched on the perimeter, Jaclyn wore jewellery belonging to Caroline. On the wedding day, Bill wore Caroline’s wedding rings close to his heart.

While there were moments of grief and sadness, there was many more moments of joy. Rick and Jaclyn are clearly crazy about each other and could not wait to be married and start their life together. Check out the photos, you’ll see!

The last photo session of 2015. It was cold and wintry and beautiful with fresh snow on the mountains and crisp blue skies.

Gorgeous right?

And super cool as an upside down reflection. For sure a personal favourite of mine.

That’s Mount Cheam in the background.

I’m so glad that these worked… I was shooting ‘blind’ and guessing where the focus would fall. 1V0C5673 1V0C5689

Everyone was quite cold so we went inside to take some more photos. Six grandchildren in 2 years. 1V0C5718

The women out number the men.

These candids were fun to capture at the end.

Raap Family » Aldergrove Family Photographer

It was a frosty Saturday morning. A little bit cold but the kids still rolled around in the soft grasses. I love this park. I am still discovering new favorite locations and fun tricks like spots with crystal clear echoes. Thank you Raap Family for choosing me to capture your family!
