New year, comes new babies! So my question is, how is it that their skin is just that soft? I mean seriously people! Have you ever touched newborn skin! Mind blowing softness. #newbornphotography #newborn #documentaryphotography
Matching your environment,it’s a thing😏 #Chamaeleon #soccersunday
This is officially my last favourite picture from 2018 (just an hour or so before as a matter of fact). This type of image is what inspires me to push to find different perspectives and focal points. #documentaryphotography #familyphotography

Jan 2, 2019. Spent the morning in PJs, soaking in the glory of Taylor Swift’s Reputation Tour on Netflix, and pondering what we missed not paying oodles for those concert tickets. • • #vancouverfamilyphotographer #vancouverdocumentaryphotographer #thedocumentaryapproach #natgeoyourshot #womenphotograph #documentyourdays #thefamilynarrative #vancouvermom #vancouverphotographer #dfpcommunity #thedocumentarymovement
All I wanted for Christmas was an updated family pic... my little was worried Brother wouldn't cooperate so she drew me one as a back up. She states Oak is trying to hide behind Oma cause he hates having his picture taken/drawn lol... gosh I love her heart.
A mother’s view. These are some of my favourite images to take during a Day in the Life Session. You know those things we do as moms, over and over again... for me it was countless hours on the soccer field and just like that it’s over, he’s grown and late night practices and games on weekends are a thing of the past. For this mama, it’s days upon days with her boys at the local skatepark. What are some of the things you do for your kiddos on repeat as it brings them joy?
Day in the Life Sessions are all about you being you with the people you love. These are the kind of sessions that everyone looks forward to. I had so much fun hanging out with this family and we crammed a ton of things into our time together, but the boys were most happy just chillin’ and doing whats normal for a Saturday morning- and that my friends is what’s so perfect about these types of sessions. They don’t fit a mold of what a family portrait should be, they are the mold of you and who you are together. This is your life as only YOU know it. Our lives happen in beautiful, messy and chaotic moments; these are our stories and they are precious and worth capturing and so are you. Xo. Claudia
What it's really like when you go down to the river or the beach with a toddler 😂
Sneak peak into the next family session reveal! Hungry children after a fun-filled photo session. Hey, this isn't your typical family portrait, and what can I say? The real, day to day life is worth capturing! . I love this photo because I see the mundane love of motherhood. Although everyone was hungry, instead of eating, she was the one serving her children and making sure they were well taken care of. . Also, I absolutely love it when families spend time with one another over a meal! . #documentaryfamilyphotography #vivianngphoto #vivianngphotography . . . . . . . . . . #littlepiecesofchildhood #watchthemgrow #worldoflittles #mytinytribe #theheartcaptured #writeyouonmyheart #nestingly #childhoodeveryday #lifestylefamilyphotography #alldaykids #vancouverdocumentaryphotographer #yvrfamilyphotography #langleyfamilyphotographer #coquitlamfamilyphotographer #vancouverfamilyphotographer #langleyfamilyphotographer #lifestylebloggers #realmotherhood #thisismotherhood #treasuringlittlememories #momentslikethis #teammotherly #momentsinmotherhood #motherhoodinspired #mommymoments #lifeandlensblog #thesincerestoryteller
Yesterday my littlest turned 3! It’s hard to believe how fast the time goes. It makes me proud to see him grow up and become more independent of me. It also makes my Mama heart ache and appreciate that he can still curl up in my lap for a snuggle and that he still needs me to kiss his little bruises and scrapes. But one day, this will grow up too. So, for now, be my chubby handed, food stuffing sweet little baby. Be it as much as you like ♥️ . . . . . . . #vancouverfamilyphotographer #vancouverdocumentaryphotographer #familyphotojournalism #docfamawards #cherishthisdayblog #definethejourney #dearphotographer #documentyourdays #thefamilynarrative #thenarrativesociety #kindredmemories #vancouvermom #vancouverphotographer #fearlessandframed #thebeautifulreal #lovingtheordinarymoments #thegallerycollective #thedocumentaryapproach #shamoftheperfect #clickinmoms #howiclick #clickmagazine #clickphotoschool #beyondthewanderlust #myfeatureshoot #thisdayandeveryday #fearlessandframed

If you are like me, I really wished I had remembered more of my childhood, of course I remember some but it's those little details - the toys I played with, the toothbrush I apparently chewed on, the knick knacks in my room, what I slept with and so much more - it's never ending when you are kid. ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ ⁣ #toys4life #toydiscovery #vancouverfamilyphotographer #vancouverdocumentaryphotographer #vancouverfamilies #squamishfamilies #clickinmoms #howiclick #cmpro #squamish #clickmagazine #beyondthewanderlust #squamishphotographer #thisdayandeveryday #fearlessandframed #cherishthisdayblog #definethejourney #dearphotographer #documentyourdays #thefamilynarrative #thenarrativesociety #kindredmemories #vancouvermom #vancouverphotographer #documentary_captured_ #yvrmoms #squamishmom #squamishkids #lightinspired #our_everyday_moments
These are the Days | 365 Project | Today is this little one’s 3rd Birthday. How is my last baby 3 already?! It seems like yesterday that my body ejected him in my living room into my own hands after a very short labour 🤭😂 He’s getting super hilarious, 3 is one of my favourite ages. He's now learned how to apply his own temporary tattoos. So when he finds some, he gets a couple sleeves 😅 . . . . . . . . . . #vancouverfamilyphotographer #vancouverdocumentaryphotographer #howiclick #clickmagazine #clickphotoschool #beyondthewanderlust #myfeatureshoot #thisdayandeveryday #fearlessandframed #familyphotojournalism #docfamawards #thedocumentaryapproach #shamoftheperfect #clickinmoms #cherishthisdayblog #definethejourney #clickpro #dearphotographer #documentyourdays #thefamilynarrative #fearlessandframed #thebeautifulreal #lovingtheordinarymoments #thegallerycollective #thegalleryoflight #clickaday2018 #thenarrativesociety #kindredmemories #vancouvermom #vancouverphotographer
-'Oh the look' - something I love capturing when photographing parents during "day in your life sessions" - I mean let's face it, we all do it and why not laugh about it - parenting is not always sunshine and rainbows! This is the beauty of real life - it's the connection in our most ordinary, everyday moments; where you’re authentic, genuine, real, raw, unpolished and unposed. With documentary family photography it's all about observing but also, it's time. The more time spent together, the deeper the photographer is able to go, the more extraordinary are the truths that come to light…and the more images of life as you know it surface. So what's your look? :) . . . . . . . . . . . #vancouverfamilyphotographer #vancouverdocumentaryphotographer #familyphotojournalism #squamishfamilies #clickinmoms #howiclick #cmpro #squamish #clickmagazine #beyondthewanderlust #squamishphotographer #thisdayandeveryday #fearlessandframed #cherishthisdayblog #definethejourney #dearphotographer #documentyourdays #thefamilynarrative #thenarrativesociety #kindredmemories #vancouvermom #vancouverphotographer #documentary_captured_ #yvrmoms #squamishmom # #subjectlight #cameramama #magicofchildhood #simplychildren #whistlerphotographer
We just potty-trained our last baby. We had a timeline because he started preschool in September (first kid to go to preschool, but he is SO bored at home by himself with the other kids in school, and he loves that he also gets to go to school). He was the easiest one out of all my kids to potty train, like he actually gets up in the middle of the night to pee and wakes up dry...which is quite shocking considering he is your typical toddler who is VERY particular about doing everything HIS way. These "lasts" are hard. I love having babies and toddlers around and these days are slipping away from me ❤ . . . . . . . . . . #vancouverfamilyphotographer #vancouverdocumentaryphotographer #familyphotojournalism #cherishthisdayblog #definethejourney #clickpro #dearphotographer #documentyourdays #thefamilynarrative #thenarrativesociety #kindredmemories #vancouvermom #vancouverphotographer #docfamawards #thedocumentaryapproach #shamoftheperfect #clickinmoms #howiclick #clickmagazine #clickphotoschool #beyondthewanderlust #myfeatureshoot #thisdayandeveryday #fearlessandframed #fearlessandframed #thebeautifulreal #lovingtheordinarymoments #thegallerycollective #thegalleryoflight #clickaday2018
As I look through my photos I've realized that I have so many images that I've never even took the time to actually look at. Having worked for 4 years in Bolivia for a small ngo, I was able to document life around me which was so amazing because it gave me a whole new perspective on life. To be an observer - so many stories can unfold themselves in front of you without even trying. Life can be pretty cool when you just sit and watch. Give it a try! You might see some pretty amazing things that you would never see if you hadn't taken the time.😉
October is Breast Cancer awareness month. This month we honour survivors, the ones we’ve lost and the ones who are currently fighting for their lives. It is not pink. It’s double mastectomies and breast reconstruction. It’s sickness and medications and countless appointments. It doesn’t discriminate. It doesn’t care if you are young or old. Over the rest of the month we will be checking in with this amazing woman, Analyn, who I count myself so lucky to have connected with ♥️ @cancer_and_the_doula • • • • • #birth #doula #motherhood #empoweredbirthproject #motherhoodrising #documentaryphotographer #vancouverdocumentaryphotographer #birthbecomesher #kendalblackerphoto #capturinglife #breastcancer #stopcensoringmotherhood #postpartum #fuckcancer #cancer #cancersurvivor #documentlife #uniteinmotherhood #breastcancerwarriors #breastcancerawareness #breastcancermagazine #brave #strong #cancersucks
That smell, their soft and fuzzy skin, the funny faces & their little hands and toes all in those first days and weeks are what makes waking up every hour ...or two ..or three worth it. ♥️
The first issue of @confluence_magazine is out TODAY! This is a space that @katiejettwalls envisioned for emerging documentary work. I believe she has built something here that has been needed for a long time and it is here to stay for the long term. @signeclayton ’s adoption story of Victoria Li is my contribution to this issue. Having @ryanchristopherjones curate this project helped me see something about my work I hadn’t realized before. He has a true gift in searching for symbolism and allowing the photographs to represent Victoria’s voice in a way that hasn’t been conveyed otherwise. This is one of the best collaborative efforts I have had the good fortune to be part of; I will never forget this! Now go read it!

These are the Days | 365 Project | Chats with dad (If you haven't noticed, I've given up on figuring out my day numbers 😅)
That moment when they wheel your wife into the OR and all you can do is wait. What was only a few minutes seemed like forever when Jason and I stood in the waiting room to be let into the OR for the birth of his baby. I can imagine his stomach must have been in knots here! Thankfully just a short 30 minutes after, he had his healthy son wrapped in his hands! @kohpilot @jmbaia @holisticbirthdoula Interested in having your birth documented? Shall we chat over some ice cream? 😉🍨 . . . . #vancouverdocumentaryphotographer #vancouverbirthphotographer #burnabyphotographer #whyilovethisphoto #ourcandidlife #vancityfamilyphotographer #fujifilmXseries #dayinthelife #childhoodunplugged #thedocumentaryapproach #thisdayandeveryday #parenthood #thisisus #fortheloveofreal #childhoodunplugged #familiesbyjme #jmeshoots #thebeautifulreal #adventuresessions #fujixt2 #vancouverbirthphotography

Nana: "Can I get the kids hamsters?" Me: "Sure! As long as they stay at your house!"
These are the Days | 365 Project | Back to school day...and finally getting up to sharing some of my summer! 😂 My 365 project is still going strong. This was on our trip back from our mini family vacay on Bowen Island, and the kids' first (well second) time on a ferry. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #clickaday2018 #documentyourdays#follow_this_light #cameramama #my_magical_moments#celebrate_childhood #shared_joy #letthemexplore #the_sugar_jar#atdiff_kids #theeverydayportrait #runwildmychild #childrenseemagic#jj_its_kids #let_there_be_delight #theweekoninstagram#galleryoflightfeature #theheartcaptured #count_itjoy #fstoppers#childhoodunplugged #kidsforreal #thesincerestoryteller#thebeautifulreal #vancouverfamilyphotographer#vancouverdocumentaryphotographer #familyphotojournalism#fearlessandframed #thefamilynarrative #dearphotographer
Why documentary family photography? To simply connect with the beauty of what happens between the planned moments - when life is the most honest ♥️
When she can’t help but smile and chuckle at her kids gettin’ jiggy with it! This friend of mine, the way she loves her children and thinks about creating the kind of childhood that is as much for each individual as it is for siblinghood - I always learn from her words. If you don’t follow @kylaewert on IG (and not just for the sake of social media), make space to take in her images, and more importantly her words. #thedocumentaryapproach #bustamove #mixedlightingftw
Sharing some thoughts about documentary photography on the @designaglow blog today. “Documentary photography is less about achieving an aesthetic product and more about honoring them and giving their story a voice and place in this world - just as they are, unaltered. There is power in bringing light to our differences and sharing this diversity will help normalize the way people and families are seen in photographs”. Link in profile if you would like to have a read!
I honestly think everyone present (including me!) had tears in their eyes as Matt’s mom and Brian’s mom performed the hand fasting in their ceremony. What a lovely way to involve parents!
It's always so inspiring to enter a person's home because you get an insight into their life story just by observing the spaces, the photos, the art, the little knick knacks around the room. Hallway's for instance, these are the spaces that are so often overlooked but are used so often and where so many memories are created. Just look around your place - you might be surprised as to where those special memories were created 🏠♥️
Oh what an honour it was to be able to photograph these two during their big day - as my last shoot before the baby comes - I can say that carrying an extra 30 pounds at the front was quite the workout but was well worth it 😂 @donnamcmurtry
This photograph pretty much sums up how I have been feeling these past few months. Teetering between “I want to quit” and “I want to keep building” this business. What’s the whole point of this? Wouldn’t it be incredible to just photograph for the love of it? To dedicate photography for the greater good without needing compensation or worrying endlessly about trying to achieve financial sustainability? Life goals right? I could not get any closer to the edge, my palms were sweaty, I was on the verge of peeing my pants....this is discomfort. But this is a place I find myself so often. Instead of trying to find an answer or making a plan, I’m sitting with it instead. Maybe this is growth? I don’t know. I’m just going to let it be and stew in my own discomfort for now. So in case you think you’re the only one going through the lows of having a business, I’m here to tell you - you are not alone!
My posting has been a little absent as I'm almost 35 weeks and I can say that I'm over it. The heat, the pelvis pains and don't get me started with gestational diabetes. It's funny how this whole pregnancy was total surprise and shock to us as we only found out only 4 and half months through the pregnancy. I really thought I had other issues and surprise that's what I had. I laugh about it but I'm not going to lie, so much is going on in my head as we are soon to welcome this tiny soul into this world. Excited ? Of course, who would't, this child chose us and we are going to do the damnedest to do our best as parents to guide and love this little one like no other. Scared? Hell yah, I mean my last pregnancy did not go so well on my body and did a lot of damage that I'm still trying to repair but it also brought along a lot of growing. With my passion of documentary photography I'm always telling other people's stories and I think this past year with my photography and my focus of authenticity it's time I start sharing some of my own - I do believe that the more vulnerable we can be with people, the more authentic we can be, those true connections arise amongst us and help us all along our journeys. ♥️♥️♥️
