The Booy’s | Abbotsford Family Pictures

This Family is fantastic.
Ange Booy is one of the kindest, most caring, most genuine people I’ve ever met. Words don’t really explain how sweet she is. She’s such an encourager, and she’s trustworthy and captivating. She’s the kind of person who asks questions because she actually wants to know the answer. The whole family exudes strength. I had the privilege of taking her photo along with her brother, Josh and parents Henry and Brenda. Josh is a courageous, Henry is a fighter, and Brenda is a trooper! They have a beautiful farm in Sumas Flats. It was a perfect day. The whole family was brought together for Thanksgiving. A true thing to be thankful for.
Here are some shots from their Fall shoot.

Happy Monday!!

Lianna & Andrew | Abbotsford Wedding.

I love listening to how Lianna and Andrew first met. They were at a prayer meeting, both of them going with the correct motives. Well, until Andrew heard Lianna pray, then he was hooked on her. OH Jesus.. : ) Andrew and I were neighbours back when he was learning how to drive and I was graphitying the cul-de-sac with my sidewalk chalk dream house and closet. I know Lianna mostly through her sister Laura, but I had the privaledge of working with Lianna at Lepp Farm Market. I looked forward to when we would have the same shifts because Lianna is so full of life! Conversation would flow so smoothly, and Lianna carries the most beautiful peaceful and joy-filled Spirit with her wherever she goes. Needless to say, I was so excited when Lianna asked if I would photograph her wedding.  These two are SO CUTE together. : )

It was a beautiful August day. Lianna and Andrew had a beautiful sentimental wedding in what used to be Lianna’s grandparents backyard. How’s that for a personal wedding?

Thank you both so much for letting me be apart of your day!

Jimmy and Kelly Cochrane | Langley Wedding

Kelly and I have been friends since we learned our ABC’s in kindergarten. Back when life was simple, I wanted to be her friend, and she must have thought my lime green head-to-toe outfits were cool because we’ve been friends ever since.

Kelly and Jimmy met at highschool in Grade 9, and they were friends right away but Jimmy moved away in grade 11, and the two of them stayed in contact. Little did they know that a highschool crush would lead them here. Jimmy and Kelly’s relationship is so real and it was such an honor to photograph their wedding. Everything and everyone matched so beautifully. Every detail was thought out from the Stenography on the game books to keep people entertained, the head table flowers, to photo props, to the hilarious and touching speeches from family and friends.

Here is the absolutely radiant Kelly and her handsome groom, Jimmy.

Each guest at the wedding received one of these fun booklets of games. Kelly is a stenographer and the writing on the back, “SKWR*US/MAERD” means “Just Married” in steno. so fun! 

Thank you Jimmy and Kelly for letting me have a part of your beautiful day!

Blessings to both of you on the amazing road that lies ahead of you.


Happy Sunday!

Lavinia – Chilliwack Prom Portraits

On my way drive out to see Lavinia, it poured rain the entire drive. My wipers were going full blast and I prayed the entire day for a break in the weather, but the dark grey blanket in the sky taunted at me with a different attitude. As soon we stepped out of the Tanasa residence, the rain came to a 100% halt, and didn’t continue until we were indoors 2 hours later at the banquet. All I can say is “Praise God!”.

This is dear Lavinia. She radiates beauty and confidence. She had the most beautiful positive attitude and giving heart. I had the privilege of attending her Grad banquet with her family, and everyone around raves about how much this girl truly cares for people.

My only advice for you, Lavinia, is keep it up. Honestly. Don’t change for the world. You are beautiful and bright, and you really do have the most amazing future ahead of you.

Her mom added the most beautiful handmade flowers to a strap and Lavinia’s hair!

I Think this one is my favourite. She’s so Radiant!

Lavinia’s Parents and sisters came along for the ride and had some photo fun as well. A beautiful caring Family. : )

Congratulations Lavinia!

Jess – Portraits

 Jess is one of those girls that you love being friends with. I haven’t know her for a terribly long time, but there’s so much that I want to tell the world about this gem. She has such a pure heart. She is quiet and gentle, but strong. She is a creator and has a absolutely beautiful gift of making things with her hands. She is extremely gracious. Oh, and VERY beautiful.  There’s so much more that I’m discovering about this beautiful girl, but ’til then, Meet Jess. : )

Happy Monday! : )
