Hildebrand Family

The laughs seriously didn’t stop this entire session! I could hang out with these peeps all the time and I really hope my kids are going to grow up to be this fun:)Thank you so much for sharing a piece of your family with me!!
We met at the Blue Heron Reserve in Chilliwack and amidst many days of rain we found a pocket of sunshine! I love it when that happens!!!

I hope you enjoy these images for many years to come…

Kai turns 2!!! | chilliwack photographer

Well it’s official!!! I no longer have a baby!! Two years ago I was impatiently waiting to be induced as I was 8 days overdue and terribly grumpy, emotional and large!! Kai, you have never been in a hurry to do any of your milestones…you didn’t crawl till 9 months, got your first tooth at 8 months, didn’t walk till 17 months and have just started really attempting to talk real words:)But through it all you have been happy, healthy and such a calm easy baby:)I have often said that you were my favorite child (joking of course, cuz as a mother I can’t have a favorite) You slept well as a new baby and were so easy going. So often I had to first tend to your brothers before feeding you and you didn’t scream, just waited your turn:)
You have always had an ear for music and are always ready to turn out a few dance moves. I have so enjoyed watching you grow up and I look forward to the young man you are turning out to be! Keep up the smiles and the laughs! I love you to the moon:)

Here are some pics from the combo birthday party with your cousin Jack…

Ryan and Kathryn | Coyote Creek Golf Course Wedding | kerensa leigh

This was an unusual year for me as most of my weddings were on a significant date for me and Ryan and Kathryn’s was one of those:)They were wed on Sept 27 which is also the day that I was married…11 years ago:)Yikes, where has the time gone???
The sun graced us with its presence which made for a lot of gorgeous light on the fall leaves! I was a teensy bit excited about their portraits!!!

Kathryn got ready at Coyote Creek Her beautiful waves were courtesy of Atomic Hair Salon and her make up was by Camilla!!
She said yes to the dress at David’s Bridal and her gorgeous bouquet’s were from Sonia’s Flowers…I adore fall colors:)

I met Tyler when I second shot with Jete last summer so it was very exciting to be asked to second shoot his wedding to his beautiful bride Bailey! These two play golf together so it was very fitting that they got hitched at the Langley Golf Club
Congrats you two!!! Loved hanging with you and your crew…
