We moved around Fort Langley, talking and trying to stay out of the heat …

Ben, Kim — it was so great to meet you and capture your sweet little family.  I trust that these images bring you much joy for many years to come!  Thank you for choosing RedHanded Photography!

Up next?  One more Mini Session and then a bus-load of family sessions coming up.  Stay tuned!

Maybe you’re thinking, “man – I really need a photographer to capture … ” something? Maybe your fiancé just popped the question – and you have some questions about RHP.  I’d love a chance to meet with you and see if we’re a good fit.  Or maybe you’re looking for the perfect gift for a new mom-to-be with maternity or newborn photos?  Maybe you haven’t had your own family pics done since your 10yr old was a toddler?  Maybe you have an event coming up – a parent’s anniversary, a baby shower, a milestone birthday, out-of-town-family in town?  I would love to hear from you!  Email me at tania@redhandedphotography.com.

When David heard that I was offering Spring Mini Sessions, he was quick to contact me to book a time.  However, those sessions ended up being re-scheduled three times due to weather.   So the group of family sessions that were supposed to be in April, ended up happening in July.  Spring Mini Sessions were ACTUALLY Summer ones … but who’s worrying about those silly details lol …

Meet David, Colin and Becca …

bloglowres (15 of 196) bloglowres (17 of 196)

Poor Becca wasn’t all that impressed with the roaring train that went by — but once it was gone, she rejoiced lol.  I love the look on David’s face – such love for her.

bloglowres (27 of 196) bloglowres (39 of 196)

Having a photo session right around nap-time can be a bit daunting … but we had time to make sure that she was getting her “space” between photos.  I love this one with Colin …

bloglowres (50 of 196) bloglowres (57 of 196) bloglowres (61 of 196)

We spend all of our time trying to teach kids to not stick out their tongues for a “silly face”, and then the photographer goes ahead and asks for it LOL.  I know — I’m a parent, I should know better lol.

bloglowres (66 of 196)

I LOVE this one of Becca …

Time to go for a little walk and change locations … it’s amazing how many photos we can get in 20min, no??

bloglowres (97 of 196)

Aweeeee ….

bloglowres (106 of 196) bloglowres (107 of 196) bloglowres (128 of 196) bloglowres (135 of 196)

It always surprises me which images are my faves … for me, this one’s a real keeper.

Becca wasn’t all that interested in having her photo taken … so the images of her are more candid – but I find that sometimes these types of images capture the essence of the child, more than “ok – say cheeeeeeeese”.  If I were David and Colin, I’d wallpaper my entrance with this one *grin* …

bloglowres (187 of 196) bloglowres (194 of 196)

David, Colin — it was an honour being chosen to serve you with your first set of family photos.  Your love and care for Becca shines through in every image.  I trust that these images will bring you joy for many years to come.

Up next?

MORE Mini Sessions … stay tuned!

Joanna had contacted me months ago — she had a friend of hers book a family session with me last year – and Joanna loved it.  With her + her family coming to Vancouver from Hong Kong during the summer months, she was hoping to get a session in with me.

LOVE that.

And she was flexible, which was so great.  See, my mother in law had suffered a stroke the week that Joanna was scheduled.  It was all just too much for me to commit to, and Joanna was very gracious in changing the dates.

So, when she and her husband, Simon, got stuck in traffic coming from Richmond and were 40minutes late to their session … I told her not to worry.  We would make sure she had the session she had been wanting …

We took a few moments to breathe and in out LOL … traffic can do that do a person!!

And voila … meet the Ip family.

Little Darren and Marcus were typical boys … so my shutter had to work fast.

These little guys had been cooped up in the car for so long, they just wanted to run and play.  I don’t blame them … so I tried to make this as quick and painless as possible *grin* …

To keep the boys occupied, we did a lot of moving and walking.  A change of scenery seems to work well with kids …

OH OH OH OH OH …..

yes.

Phil + Ruthanne are going to look pretty darn familiar … you can see their past #RHPengagement session HERE and their recent #RHPMaternity session HERE.

And this?

Oh boy … get ready.

THIS, is Jakob.

bloglowres (1 of 292)

I mean … come ON.  Look at this sweet, little face.

bloglowres (7 of 292)

… whatcha thinking, Jakob?  aweeee ….

bloglowres (15 of 292) bloglowres (17 of 292)

Don’t worry, Phil and Ruthanne were close by *grin*.  Newborn sessions are usually pretty choppy – and that’s just fine with me.  There are moments where the little one needs to be changed or fed or just loved on.  For me, those are some of the very best moments to capture.
bloglowres (26 of 292) bloglowres (29 of 292) bloglowres (43 of 292) bloglowres (54 of 292)

What a little man …

bloglowres (57 of 292) bloglowres (67 of 292) bloglowres (70 of 292) bloglowres (85 of 292)

Newborn sessions aren’t just about the new addition … so I make sure to capture some “family” shots too.

bloglowres (90 of 292) bloglowres (97 of 292)

I LOVE this one …

Little Jakob wanted to eat and eat …

bloglowres (168 of 292) bloglowres (173 of 292)

… and wasn’t too good at the burping part yet LOL…

bloglowres (180 of 292)

But soon – he was fast asleep.

bloglowres (202 of 292) bloglowres (214 of 292)

… for a few minutes lol.

bloglowres (236 of 292) bloglowres (243 of 292) bloglowres (249 of 292)

… it’s VERY tiring having your photo taken.

bloglowres (258 of 292)

… those toes.

bloglowres (263 of 292)

I took A LOT of pics (can you tell??) … and as always, before I wrapped up I asked – “is there anything else I can capture for you?”

Ruthanne really wanted a photo of Jakob on her wedding gown …

No problem 🙂

bloglowres (281 of 292) bloglowres (291 of 292)

And that was a WRAP.

Phil, Ruthanne — first off, you make cute babies.  Secondly, THANK YOU.  It’s been such a joy being a part of so many of your big moments — thank you for trusting me to capture these times for you.

Up next?  Simon + Natalie’s #RHOFamily session …

In case you missed it – you can view Kevin + Susan’s Hycroft ceremony HERE , their in-between photos HERE and the start of their reception HERE.

… we were now onto the speeches made by friends and family.  They were heartfelt, funny stories — words that obviously meant so much to Kevin and Susan …

After all the words were said, it was time to move all of the guests downstairs to watch the new couple share their first dance …

bloglowres (293 of 235) bloglowres (311 of 235)

… and some other spectacular moments ensued …

It was the end of the evening, Nearly Neal came out and stole the show.  Every guest was either dancing, or mouthing the words to all of the familiar Neil Diamond tunes …
