One whole year of adventure.
All of our phone calls and appointments had to be scheduled between camping trips, family visits, and adventuring. The Petrovics Family takes every opportunity to spend time with each other and planned their Summer full of outdoor activities. Every time I see them, they have new stories about which hikes they have completed and which of British-Columbia’s lakes their two daughters, Brooke and Emma, enjoyed the most.
We all celebrated Baby Emma’s first birthday in their backyard garden playing with bubbles, riding in the wagon, and singing songs to keep her smiling. One of my favourite things about this family is that even though they were all awake the whole night before with Emma, they rolled with everything and kept their photoshoot planned as usual.
Jennifer said something along the lines of ‘if we rescheduled, it would be something else, and that’s our life!’
I have loved getting to know Jennifer and Jordan better and watching their little family grow up. I love their laid-back attitudes, the strong girls they are raising, and how family oriented they are. Thank-you again for having me take your family portraits this year ♥︎

Angela & Baby Navy Mae
Angela said what every parent says but truly means with their whole heart: “It sounds cliche but I just want her to be happy.”
Navy is one of the happiest six-month-olds ever. Anybody who meets her wants to keep her. I want to keep her, all you have to do is look at her and Navy is thrilled.
“I also want her to go to college and to go through that life experience, meet other people and cultures… I want her to turn out fabulous like her mum!”
I couldn’t agree more, fabulous is correct. Spending the morning with Angela and Navy was like hanging out with old friends. There were many things to talk about with many baby cuddles in between. It is a true pleasure when someone can speak honestly and openly about themselves and their experiences. Angela has a calm confidence in herself that came through in the stories she shared with me about her life and new experience with her and her partners new baby, Navy.
Angela explained about her pregnancy with Navy and how she was born breech, which means that she was born bottom first instead of head first. It’s clear that Navy still finds this position quite comfortable and that it is how she prefers to sit. When left on her own, it’s only seconds before Navy has her foot in her mouth or her heels above her head.
Navy inherited her love for people and being social from her mom and has the busyness and energy of her dad. She inherited her names from family members and is always wrapped in a sentimental sweater or blanket. Her mom explained that she found her voice last week and hasn’t stopped babbling and yelling about things. She likes to grab everything and hold everything, all while continuing to stare into your eyes and smile.
Thank you to Angela for being such a lovely mom and to Navy for being the character that she is. I loved spending the morning with you both xx
