Blue and Yellow | Chilliwack Family Photographer

If we were trying to match the location and the wardrobe, then we totally nailed it. :) I love all the blue and yellow this fall…almost as much as I love these great people. Care and Ben, we were always happy to see you before Maren arrived last December, but since then we are simply delighted if we get to see you. ;) Your baby is such a little treasure.

Thanks for braving the COLD wind with me last Saturday. It was totally worth it – check out that sky! And check out those fat baby cheeks.


Maren has such an expressive little face. :)


(Thanks Ella for the use of your boat. ;))


Thanks Care, Ben and Maren for braving the elements with me. Maybe next year dv, let’s plan your session for an equally sunny day – in July. :)

xox friends.

Beautiful! Love Maren’s fuzzy hair and smiles for Mom :) Love the last one on the dock too – beautiful colours!

Ashley Van Koeveringe - November 25, 2014 - 3:18 am

Love them all! :)

Oh man! these are too gorgeous! I especially love the ones where Care and Ben are laying with Maren between them but they are all amazing! My heart melted….xoxo.

Awesome Alberta Shoot | Family Photography

I had hoped to do this family shoot on the way to Ontario this summer. We’d planned to drive the motor-home across the mountains to Alberta, pick up half of this great family (yes, they are my family, lucky me; Cora’s Eric’s sister), and head on over through the States to Norwich to visit more family over there, but sadly that never happened. :( The particularly sad part of all of that is that we had to delay the shoot. To November. What on earth were we thinking?! The winds were howling (see first pic of the shoot below :)), and the temperatures were far below where any sane person would hang about outside for 1.5 hours sans winter coats!! :{ However, despite all that, I’m rather excited about these pictures. I don’t get to shoot in AB often, and while I am partial to my home province I confess, I must also admit that I LOVED shooting that WIDE open sky. It’s simply stunning…as is this cute Maljaars family (and Colin’s girlfriend too). Check them out! :)


Ah, I loved shooting by that wood pile. I was loath to leave it and go shoot elsewhere, since it looked so cool on the pics, but also because it was the only wind-free spot of the whole session!!! :P)

Look at these ADORABLE boys. They love each other dearly…and despite the fact that Liam has great friends here at home/school too…he still really misses his BFF Kerwin a LOT. :{ Liam, Connor and Kerwin had such a great time together!


And then. These marvelous irrigation pipes just happened to be laying there in perfect formation, much to my delight!


See that walking picture two up from here? One of my fave walking pics ever.

Then we headed out to the open fields, to capture some more of those great clouds and the beautiful wide open spaces…


Ah!! That was super fun…despite the frost-bite! (Haha, just kidding, although I will own up to the fact that I am a wimpy Chilliwackian. :))  Thanks John and Cora for having us for the weekend. :) Love ya all. xoxo

PS more pics of Alberta coming up soon-ish. When I finally get done all my shoots (both shooting and editing) and get done my card and calendar page designs. So, some time spring maybe?! :P

John and Cora – looking good! :)

Arianna Christine - November 21, 2014 - 10:27 pm

Fabulous as per usual Kris! love the reflection in that walking one!

Carole Rozendaal - November 21, 2014 - 9:45 pm

Looking good Cora & John! Missing you guys…

Cora Maljaars - November 21, 2014 - 4:06 pm

Thankyou Kristy!! Love Love them:) Thank you for coming to visit with your family (and camera:) We do miss you guys too but Alberta is treating us great too:) It’s only a couple hours away really:)

Awesome family pictures! Love the colours. Brrr…it looks cold!

Wacky Woodle Clash Day

This post is a wee bit hard on the eyes, I admit. So GARISH! So BRIGHT! Beware.

It’s clash day today at school. My kids are both hoping desperately to win. I think they have a pretty good chance, no?! :)  (Update, they both won second in their classes! I can only imagine what first place looked like?!)


(This last pic I did something I never do, which is put a paint filter on it. Hey the kids get to be crazy in the wardrobe department, I thought I’d go nuts in Photoshop. ;) Fear not. It’s a one-time thing. Haha.)

Happy wet, wacky weekend! xox

Patricia Neels - November 21, 2014 - 1:56 pm

Ya…I would say they have a good chance at winning :)

Last time of the year… | Chilliwack Family Photographer

Here’s a few of  my faves from this colourful session.


Thanks ya’ll! Loved shooting you guys – hope you love the pics! xox
