A halfheartedly updated record of all the things that make my heart sing + a celebration to all the rad people I get to create with

Wild Mountain | Chilliwack | with Inhale Floral Designs, Montana's Bridal Hair, and Joelle Marks (Family Management)

This day was cold, and awesome. I pretty much drove into the ditch, but I pulled myself out (through strength of will and only small, well hidden moments of panic) and the sky was blue and perfect and Chilliwack Lake was like a storybook winter wonderland. It was freezing. Like, it was really really cold, which makes model Joelle even more of a champ - she braved that cold in a dress and fur blanket and never complained once. 

We shot quick, we shot cold, and I feel really lucky to live in this lovely place surrounded by such awesome creative people.

Mamas, meadows and beautiful golden light | Chilliwack Maternity Photographer

Ok, fast forward back to early summer, when I'm driving around one of my favourite new places and stumble across this random amazing meadow on the side of the road. By August this place was in full on bloom with tiny purple wildflowers, and I knew it would be the perfect place to do maternity photos with Chelsea and Chris. Lemme tell you about Chelsea and Chris: They are two of the loveliest people you could meet. To be honest, this entire paragraph was originally just going to read "CHELSEA AND CHRIS ARE AWESOME" followed by photographic evidence. 

...I'm terrible at blogging. But honestly, this session and these people hold a real special place in my heart, and I'm so grateful I got to share a few moments with this wonderful little family.
