T&J Family Day Out | Abbotsford BC | Family Photographer

An uneventful New Years | Placer Creek, BC

I suppose our New Years had the potential to be fraught with disaster. After all – we were going camping – in the dead of winter – in a tent – in the middle of nowhere. We arrived at Placer Creek (east of Manning Park Resort) in the middle of...

No tree was slain to print this snake

I think i might have eaten play-doh as a child. Im only saying that because whenever i open a fresh can of that bright, colourful, soft stuff – it triggers something deep inside that says YUM. I bought it all the time for the kids – all those sundae makin’,...

I know Vancouver likes to surprise us – but still – it can be a challenge to always have a bright side to a very rainy day and over the February Valentines Day Weekend we did see sooo much rain that at one point – one of our sessions was...

My Favs from 2011

I take Chinese New Year very seriously – i love chinese food, love Jackie Chan, love the clothing, art and furniture, and – in fact – my grandma grew up in Tientsin and my mother was born in China. Besides – living in the Vancouver area – embracing chinese customs...

Baby’s First Christmas

Its been a busy month of babies and Im guilty of enjoying it – there is something warm and wonderful about holding a baby that I just love. I love to hold their tiny feet, when they grasp my fingers, when I kiss their fuzzy heads, and rock them when...
