Shalan + Keyvan’s Wedding-The Cove Lakeside Resort-Kelowna B.C.

Rain on your wedding day...every Brides nightmare.... but for this easy going, gorgeous  bride it was like nothing, she was SO very calm and collected...I was very impressed. Rain is often considered a symbol of fertility. Water helps things grow. A couple may hope that one day their marriage will be blessed with children (SOONER THEN LATER IF IT WAS UP TO Shalan's BRIDESMAIDS! lol) Rain also is symbolic of a new start. The water can cleanse the earth and help wash away past debris. A marriage is a new start for a couple. If it rains on your wedding day, consider yourself blessed with a clean slate.Look at it as if the Rain is washing away Your life before you Found your true love. Let go of the past, Embrace the future, and Celebrate the present Moment. The ceremony was moved inside the tent and as soon as they said their I do's the rain stopped and it was beautiful sunshine for the photos! Perfect timing! Shalan was the sweetest most easy going Bride, all her friends and bridesmaids were so friendly and accommodating it was such a pleasure spending the day with them. And Beautiful, I mean come on.... geez I told Shalan she should have done a better job picking her bridal party (sarcastic of course). and the guys looked pretty spiffy as well. Let's not forgot the little flower girl and their handsome nephews, the suspenders and bow ties, were too much cuteness to handle. The rest of the day was great,  I sure could feel the love these two shared and the love their family and friends shared for both of them. Keyvan and Shalan I wish that you live happy forever as lovers and friends, May success find it's way to your hearts and your life together bring you the greatest of joys.

Never Grow Up-”Micah’s” sneak peek-newborn photographer-sharla pike photography

"Never Grow Up"-Taylor swift Your little hand's wrapped around my finger And it's so quiet in the world tonight Your little eyelids flutter cause you're dreaming So I tuck you in, turn on your favorite night light To you everything's funny, you got nothing to regret I'd give all I have, honey If you could stay like thatOh darling, don't you ever grow up Don't you ever grow up, just stay this little Oh darling, don't you ever grow up Don't you ever grow up, it could stay this simple I won't let nobody hurt you, won't let no one break your heart And no one will desert you Just try to never grow up, never grow up.

Say hello to Micah , this cutie pie wanted to spend a little more time in mommy's tummy so he was a little late, but when he finally came into the world I was honored to be able to capture him in his first week of life. Lately I have been taking a more "lifestyle" approach to my newborn sessions, less posing, less props just more REAL, natural life images. There is something so amazing watching new parents, how they stare into the eyes of their new baby, how they will do ANYTHING for this new little babe they have brought into the world. Children are such precious gifts, we need to cherish every moment, cause one day like the song by Taylor swift... they will "grow up"  and  believe it or not we will look back and miss all  the sleepless nights, you become selflessness in all kinds of situations like  being stuck on the couch when you have to pee, but  because your baby is sleeping on your chest and you just want them to SLEEP you just stay put,  You'll miss the million times a day you have to change their diapers, that endless string from the diaper gene . and don't' forget the days when showering everyday is a BIG accomplishment (ok maybe you wont miss that part...but you know what I mean. .These moments that once you become a parent you wouldn't trade for the world.
 That's one of the gifts of being a parent, you learn to accept things you can't change or control and you experience what it's like to love someone more then you ever thought possible.baby boy-kelowna-newbornphotos-baby photographer-kelowna baby photos-star blanket-IMG_1206new parents-baby-newborn photos-kelowna photographer IMG_1308IMG_1374mommy and baby-mama-baby- newborn-babay-boy- kelowna newborn photographerIMG_1416newborn feet photos-mommy daddy baby feet-IMG_1474new dad-father son-dad and boy- daddysleepy newborn-newborn photos-okanagan newborn-calgary photographer- vancouver photographer-IMG_1643IMG_1670IMG_1677

MATT + JEN Okanagan Wedding -Sunset Ranch

"How Long Will I Love You"-ELLIE GOLDING

How long will I love you? As long as stars are above you...And longer, if I can. How long will I need you? As long as the seasons need to... Follow their plan. How long will I be with you? As long as the sea is bound to... Wash upon the sand. How long will I want you? As long as you want me to...And longer by far. How long will I hold you? As long as your father told you...As long as you can. How long will I give to you? As long as I live through you...However long you say.
Jen walked down the aisle to her groom Matt to this beautiful song, they are seriously one of the cutest couples I have met, and a couple who made their wedding about THEM, such a FUN group, and a FUN wedding, they were so excited to be married they ran down the aisle before the ceremony was even over matt scooped her up and they drove off in a golf cart, so spontaneous, and awesome!!! Their wedding was held at Sunset Ranch in Kelowna BC , cocktail hour was at a beautiful winery "ancient hills" near by the golf course. These two will last forever and more , they make each other laugh and smile, which are two of the best ingredients that go into a long happy marriage. enjoy your sneak peek so many more to come:) xoxo
