Photography + Writings from a Chilliwack Photographer

Deanne | Chilliwack Beauty Photography

YOU GUYS. THIS IS DEANNE AND SHE IS AMAZING. 

Doing more film photography again is on my (long, long) list of things to do one day, but in the meantime, using old cameras as props is pretty rad. 

Do any of you remember using rotary phones? Both my grandmothers had one, and I remember how frustrating it would be when you missed a number and had to start all the way at the beginning. They're so PRETTY though, it's hard to pass them up when I see them around town. I'm also working on a portrait project series with old phones - it'll be in the works after I finish the 24 Hour Portrait Project & Guys and Flowers, and I'm stoked to get started. 

The 24 Hour Portrait Project begins June 22-23, you can follow along on Facebook or Instagram - and I'm still allowing some last minute entries! We have a couple more spots I would absolutely love to fill, so please don't hesitate to put your name in if you're interested and want to help support the project!

Anyways, Deanne and I had an awesome time as spring came to the valley, wandering around gardens with a bunch of retiredish fabulous technology.

Hannah | Chilliwack Portrait & Beauty Photographer

I love flowers, but forever & always, my favourite flowers will be the ones that come as the first signs that winter is over. I love the wildflowers & the weeds - and nothing makes me happier than seeing fields of happy yellow dandelions, buttercups, bluebells, and daisies. 

I also love these willow trees. They sit in a secret spot I visit sometimes, taking long drives to the river to listen to podcasts, or singing along as obnoxiously as possible to Adele albums, and you can go right underneath them, in this great big sea of dandelions, while the branches wave to and fro above in the wind. It's one of my favourite spots in Chilliwack. 

Here's just a little portrait session with Hannah, on an incredibly beautiful May day in our beautiful spring-filled city. 

Also: a quick little note to say that this is the last week to sign up for the 24 Hour Portrait Project, happening this June. AND I've added session spots open for Saturday June 2, and Thursday June 7th. June is one of my favourite months to shoot in - hit me up and let's make some magic together!
