Maljaars Family | Chilliwack Family Photographer

I simply can not believe that it’s been 4 years since I last shot this family. Sheer craziness.

This year, this session just didn’t seem to want to happen! The first date that we had scheduled looked like rain, so we cancelled…and then it turned out to be a gorgeous evening after all. The second date we had to cancel due to sick kids. The third day, thankfully worked out marvelously. The weather was gorgeous; the kids perfectly behaved, hale and healthy; I had such a great time shooting these guys! :)

A rather rambunctious and adorable clan, in a fabulous setting…


Then we headed over to the Maljaars’ home for some campfire pics…


Thanks Ron, Willemijn and kids! I hope you enjoy this summery session for years to come! :)

Love these! The boys look so alike! The one with Ron playing settlers with the boys is pretty much Ben’s dream for our family one day:)

The Brown Fam | Chilliwack Family Photographer

These were shot in Everson, Washington, not Chilliwack, but you know how those Americans get about us Canadians going down there and working (if you can actually call a fun shoot “work”?!?)…even if it was in exchange for a photoshoot for our own family, which hope to happen in a week or two! Anywhoozle, I digress…

Alyssa is a great friend of mine, and a marvelous photographer. I was super excited for the chance to shoot her family 2 weeks ago. I know she has an adorable family, and I also know that she has a wickedly awesome sense of style, and is great at picking out cool locations….so when the opportunity presents itself to shoot a CUTE family, dressed in funky clothes, in a pretty setting, I’ll take it. ;) I’ll also admit that shooting another photographer makes me a wee bit nervous…so Alyssa, I hope these pics are everything you’d dreamed of! :)



LOVED shooting you guys. :) Thanks for the opportunity, friend! xo

Oh my goodness these pictures are beautiful! Love my beautiful friend Alyssa and her family so much! You did a wonderful job capturing these amazing people!

Fishing on the Fraser | Chilliwack Family Photographer

A session on the Fraser, with the family doing what they love to do: boating, hanging out, and fishing? What a fabulous idea. (Especially fabulous because my family got to come along, eat, fish and enjoy the evening along with me! :)) You guys are always such a pleasure to photograph. Thanks for your patience with me…even if my endless shooting until the last shred of light left the sky, meant that not a single fish was able to be caught. :P

Happy summer memories!



Enjoy the last couple weeks of fishing season! :)

Love you guys. xox

GREAT pictures of a GREAT family!

Great pictures Kris!

Love these! Love the ones of jake and linda on the boat the best!

Rebecca & Patrick. Just because.

Because they love each-other dearly, and hope to marry one day. Because they met in Ontario last year, but Rebecca just moved back to BC to help with her family…leaving Patrick behind. Because any time is a great time for pictures – especially at Harrison! ;)


Patrick and Rebecca, it was great to meet you up with you and shoot you two. Hope you guys are living in the same province soon! :)

Happy, beautiful weekend!

First Day.

Nerves. Excitement. Nostalgia. Anticipation. Grades 6 and 4.


I was sad to drop these kids off at school again this morning. Summer was wonderful. Fun. Relaxing. Too short.
