mike & andy | moose maternity | west van photography | kerensa leigh

i love west van, i love stanley park and the surrounding areas, there is something so calming and peaceful being at the ocean. the air is so fresh, the sound of the crashing waves is soothing, and the people there have no where else they’d rather be! it is all so different from the valley. where the air is fresh…with the smell of farms, the sounds are filled with the hustle and bustle of cars with people going to work or back home, both not bad places to be but when compared to the ocean…it does feel a little dim.

mike and andy asked me to help them document their second pregnancy at dundarave park. the photoshoot went great, but events leading up to it and after it were not so golden…we were meeting my parents at stanley park and they were going to look after my boys, well there had been an accident on the 2nd narrows bridge so 5 lanes were merging into 1…we didn’t bother with paying for parking because we weren’t going to be there very long…$40 later:(and after we were done with the shoot my husband impaled his foot with a sharp piece of bark!! he ended up needing a tetanus shot after spending 2 hours in the ER! but like i said, the photos turned out great!

their family nickname is moose and we will be incorporating some stuffed moose into our newborn session…but first, here are some pics from their beach session. we finished this session just in time as baby camden arrived four days later at 5 and a half weeks early…i can’t wait to get some snuggles in:)

i absolutely love it when past clients contact me to photograph their growing families. i first me keegan and lauren when their first son adrien was born four years ago so to get to see how big he is now is crazy. he is so full of life and welcomed me into his home with excitement! his younger brother jesse is about to turn two and he’s so adorable…and if life with two young boys isn’t hectic enough they added the precious little mika:)with two older brothers to watch out for her she’s sure to grow up feeling like a princess.

they tell me they are all done having kids so that means no more greenwood newborn shoots for me:(hopefully i’ll still get to watch these kids grow up through annual family shoots:)

anyways, here are some of my faves of the day…

dinner dilema | chilliwack photographer | kerensa leigh

so pinterest has been a dinner saver on so many occasions and last night was no exception. i knew that i was going to use broccoli and chicken and this is what i decided to make…szechuan noodles…i didn’t have any tahini but i added a bit more peanut oil and it was aw-may-zing!!! dilema solved! it was super easy to make and tasted so good! if you like a little spice you gotta try this:)

this beautiful family is near to my heart and i’ve been so happy to watch ashley as a mother to anderson. for the first year and a half she raised him on her own! it takes such great courage to be a single mom and it is no small task!

justin and ashley have been in a relationship for a year and he has taken up the roll of support to ashley and roll model to anderson, who adores him completely! as ashley’s sister in law i am so happy to see her in love! and with someone who loves and uplifts her.

so as we wait for their family to grow, we enjoy where it is today with these fun photos

baby jack | abbotsford newborn photography | kerensa leigh

so amber and matt discovered they were expecting another baby when their daughter adley was eight months old, after the shock wore off they were excited to begin another adventure as well as expanding their beautiful family.

they were wanting to wait to find out what the sex of the baby was till he/she was born, but an excited clinician let it slip out that they were going to have a baby boy:)

she had a pretty uneventful pregnancy and was scheduled to have a c-section on nov 5 but her water broke on its own on nov 3 and beautiful baby jack arrived safely weighing in at 7 lbs 10 oz!!

while i was very impatiently waiting for my bundle of joy to arrive i had the pleasure of getting some shots of jack…
