Halloween Minis! THIS OCTOBER!

Hi, I’m Sarah, and Halloween is my favourite.

I love scary things. I mean, as I write this, I’ve also just paused a terribly awesome ghost audiobook about a haunted inn, I’m burning a fall-scented candle, I’m rolling around in a room full of seasonal sweaters, I’m brewing a pumpkin spice latte in my cozy kitchen: I’VE GONE FULL FALL, and I’m so ready for the 31st.

I kept thinking about the photos I have from when I was a kid, the ones of me in costume, with my friends, dressed in costumes that took my mom forever to get me into. I was a black cat, a news reporter (I dressed almost normal, except I walked around with a microphone and recording case and gave obnoxious interviews), a pink dog, and Little Red Riding Hood. What I love the most about so many Halloween costumes is the time and effort put into every beautiful piece - the excitement, and the love, and the memory-making - and this year, I want to photograph that.

SO, I’m offering mini-sessions NEXT WEEK, on Tuesday (23), Thursday (25), Saturday (27), and Sunday (28). Minis are short, sweet & simple - in costume - and $100 (limit of 2 people) - and open to ALL AGES. (Shoot me an email if you want to book more than 2!) 1/2 nonrefundable retainer due upon booking. Sessions are 20 minutes, and include 3 digital files of your choice from a downloadable online gallery (additional files available for purchase.)

To book, shoot me an email through the contact form, and let me know what your day preference is. Spots are limited, so book soon!

An 80th Birthday Full of Love! | Chilliwack Birthday Photographer

Loved this bright and colourful backyard birthday party so much! It's loveliness is no surprise when a decor dream team is part of the family - {Simple Soiree}! 

These are absolutely my favourite kinds of events to photograph - just little light filled gatherings, casual portraits, and documentary style capturing, -- and best of all, you could tell that the whole evening was bursting full of love for an amazing woman.
