Natalie & John : Married [ Comox Valley Wedding Photographer] http://www.imagesbylaurence.com/blog/2017/7/natalie-john-married-comox-valley-wedding-photographer Natalie and John tied the knot June 24th 2017, in front of their family and friends, on Quadra Island. Gowlland Harbour resort is a little gem nested on a beautiful cove. After 15 minutes of a ferry ride from Campbell River ( on Vancouver Island), you drive about 10 minutes and end up in this gorgeous place where you forget the time and only want to enjoy the sceneries. 

I so understand why Natalie and John chose this place to get married !! 

4 bridesmaids, 4 groomsmen, 2 puppies ...... and a beautiful ceremony followed by a very emotional set of speeches, a delicious dinner and some laughters and tears ...... It was just a perfect wedding, in a perfect location.

Nicola and Andre : welcoming life [Comox Valley maternity and newborn photographer] http://www.imagesbylaurence.com/blog/2017/5/nicola-and-andre-welcoming-life-comox-valley-maternity-and-newborn-photographer When Nicola contacted me, she told me she wanted to document her pregnancy , then, after a few messages, she decided she would go with the bundle Maternity and Newborn sessions. 

We met in Comox. I had hired my youngest son to be my assistant, he adjusted the lights and helped with the poses. We spent about half an hour in the park, then headed to the studio for some more intimate photographs. 

A few weeks later, they welcomed a little Noah, wee little boy , tiny and beautiful.

The beauty of having a photographer on site, is that sometimes they capture the perfect shot by being at the good spot, at the good time. This guest ended up having her head inside a bubble ! ( no photoshop involved in this image). Qualicum Beach wedding

Darren and I had the honour to document this wedding, it was such a great day.

Never forget where you come from [Comox family photographer] http://www.imagesbylaurence.com/blog/2016/11/never-forget-where-you-come-from-comox-family-photographer Today, after months of silence on this blog, and before starting to write this past summer's weddings, I wanted to post something a little bit personal.

 

I remember when I was a child, my father ( who was working a lot .....) was spending part of his free time photographing us. My brothers and I have lots of pictures of us when we were little. I remember my very long and thick hair, and me playing with it while my dad was taking pictures. Now, when I see those images, I always have a little tear rolling on my face. My father is still with us, so is my mother, but they live 9,000 km away. Or should I say, we live 9,000 km away from them. Our choice to move to Canada is not the easiest when it comes to family.

Yesterday, I was wandering in my studio, going from my chair to the couch, from trying to concentrate on my computer to look around and moving things .....and my eyes stopped on this top shelf where the Mamiya is. It was looking at me, screaming take me in your hands, begging me to hold it, to blow the dust off of it's body.

 

Mama 645

 

As I stood up and reached at it, my mind started to wander away, back to my childhood and I became very emotional. 

This camera, my dad's, is filled with memories, I took it to Germany when I was a teenager , twice actually, I shot churches with it, and empty fields, mountains and people, I remember one night, I slept with it, it was my safe place ..... I was giving the rolls of film to Gege, a friend of my Dad's who was developing them, I remember going to his apartment and looking at the magic happening as the images were appearing on those pieces of paper hanging on clotheslines .....

All that to say : hang on to your memories, keep those treasure deep inside and let them surface every once in a while, those pieces of our past are what makes us who we are today, and for me, they are what help me to go a little bit further every day.

 

Some days, I just need to remember where I'm from to think : the road is stretching right in front of us, and let's move forward to see what it holds, and in 15 or 20 years from now, may be I'll remember this Nikon I'm using today, and perhaps my son will be as well, having memories of him shooting dolphins while riding the boat on the Pacific Ocean.

 

My work is to create memories, and having them, being able to touch them, to watch them, is important. 

Sometimes, when memories are all you have left, you need to hang on to them to help you to go through the day. 

Photography is a form of keeping those memories alive, I love what I do because I know that every day I create a piece of memory for my clients.

Arron and her beautiful family [Comox family photographer] http://www.imagesbylaurence.com/blog/2016/6/arron-and-her-beautiful-family-comox-family-photographer I've met Arron in January, right after the birth of her third child : Vivienne.

Since then we have developed a friendship and seeing her and her children always makes me feel happy.

This past week, she came to the studio to have some pictures taken. I have loved every second of this session. 

Baby Vivienne is growing so fast, Abby is such a good little girl and Zack is a little boy full of energy, but so adorable.

 

I let you enjoy those pictures : 

 

 

I'm so looking forward to our next photo session !!

Feel free to give this family some love : Comment and share this blog as much as you want to :)

The New Studio [Comox Newborn Photographer] http://www.imagesbylaurence.com/blog/2016/5/the-new-studio Here it is !! Officially ready to operate : The new Studio.

We turned a double car detached garage into a photography studio dedicated to Newborns. The previous owner of our house loved his sports cars so much that he built them a fully insulated, large double garage with all the bells and whistles ! 

We changed the floors and lay a beautiful laminate , we insulated and covered the garage door, repainted all the walls, cleaned , and installed all I need to work in a beautiful space and to welcome my clients in a safe and cozy environment. 

 

 

 

I went shopping in Calgary and came back with a full truck of props, fabrics, flowers, baskets and nests ....... 

I set up my lights, installed the sitting area ( after stealing the couch and chair in the TV room of our house !! ), put together the coffee table and ordered a lot of my favourite pictures to decorate the walls.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now, I'm officially open to business in my new space and I can't wait to receive my large beanbag ( within the next few days) and I can open the door to my "miniature" clients. 

 

In order to reflect my joy of being in this new space, I have reviewed my price list and made my services more affordable and more in the line of search of my clients. You will now receive 12 digital pictures with your photo session, see the detail here : PRICE LIST 

 

I can't wait to photograph my first client in this lovely space, but that said : feel free to pop by anytime to see the space and to share a cup of tea or coffee with me. Message me ( EMAIL ME ) for the address, to book your session, or just to say HI :) 

 

I'm looking forward to seeing you in my new studio .

 

Laurence.

Baby Beckett [Port Alberni Newborn Photography] http://www.imagesbylaurence.com/blog/2016/4/baby-beckett-port-alberni-newborn-photography If you follow this blog, you will remember the beautiful wedding of Yanny and Dave. You can see the blog here : Yanny & Dave

March 22, 2016 they welcomed their first child together and I had the immense honour to take his newborn pictures, thanks to Moira ( Yanny's twin sister). Let me introduce baby Beckett :

 

 

On a personal note, I would like to say that , if I always love and enjoy my time spent at people's homes to do their newborn sessions, this time was different . Yanny's father was there and he fed me with his culture and energy and I must say : I left their house with a beautiful feeling of plenitude. Every time we meet people in life, we learn something from them, this time I learned on myself and on native culture. I will forever remember and cherish this moment shared with him.

Baby Vivienne [Courtenay Newborn Photographer] http://www.imagesbylaurence.com/blog/2016/3/baby-vivienne-courtenay-newborn-photographer When Arron opened the front door of her home, she had baby vivienne in her arms and little Zack in her legs. Shaggy beautiful little boy, Zack wanted me to explain him every single of my moves. Why are you doing this ? Why are you doing that ? ...... and I had so much pleasure answering his questions, he reminded me of my second son : very curious of everything surrounding him. 

His sister Abby was more in the observation mode, helping a lot, and smiling. 

Arron has a beautiful little family, I was feeling so blessed to be able to meet them and to be the one capturing Vivienne's first moments.

 

Here is a sample of the images, more on the video attached below.

 

Congratulations Arron on welcoming your little Vivienne in your already beautiful family :)

Bradley and Grant, newborn twins photography [Courtenay Comox newborn photographer] http://www.imagesbylaurence.com/blog/2016/2/bradley-and-grant-courtenay-comox-newborn-photographer Awe ...... I think that's all I can say : Awe ......

When Katrina told me she was expecting twin boys, she also asked me if I would take their pictures. I was so excited !! 

Those two little boys are my first twins in ages ( I had photographed Kim's about 8 years ago). I was a little nervous too because I had 2 newborns to handle that day !! I'm used to 1, but 2 ...... well, it went amazing, I had such a blast, there is no words to describe this feeling. Posing together those 2 little babies, watching them interacting, getting closer, relaxing when in contact with one another made me realize that YES , there is something special in the twins relationship. 

Katrina looks awesome, she has a lot of energy and she let me in charge of her little boys with no apprehension. That made my job easier, and more relaxed.

Here is a sample of their images, 

And their slideshow ( better seen directly on You Tube, just click on the video, don't forget to select HD and watch it full screen) :

Baby Adaline http://www.imagesbylaurence.com/blog/2016/1/baby-adaline Adaline is like a little piece of jewelry. She is a beautiful baby, adorable little girl who decided she will not help me while I was taking her pictures !!! 

Well, she was fussy, it happens to all of us at some point of time, but her Mom made me a delicious coffee that I enjoyed while she was feeding Adaline.

Then, baby decided she will cooperate a little bit, so we ceased the opportunity and had some pretty neat images.

Little T. came to me with a huge smile on his face and turned out being and awesome little boy, smiling, participating and giving me hugs. Who doesn't love toddlers hugs ? Me I love them. 

Little L. wouldn't settle for the first 2 hours and a half of his session, and when I started to pack all my gear, he decided he would sleep. So at this time, we didn't wait one second and started the photo session. Here are a few of his pictures.

Always Invited Event Rental, Courtenay http://www.imagesbylaurence.com/blog/2015/11/always-invited-event-rental-courtenay I have met Tami, Erin, Lee and Robin back in September 2014 when I started planning my own wedding.

First contact with Erin made me decide right away that I will rent my decor with them. 

Amazing customer service, excellent contact, punctuality and precision were delivered.

I have kept an excellent relationship with them as we work together , to a point where last weekend, I went to the Crown Isle Gold resort to photograph their display during the wedding show.

Here is a sample of the images.

You can find them online : on Facebook   or you can browse their website

Fall / Halloween Model Shoot [Comox Model Photography] http://www.imagesbylaurence.com/blog/2015/10/fall-/-halloween-model-shoot-comox-model-photography I've known Michaela for 2 years now, seeing her getting out of the teenagers years and turning into a beautiful young woman. I love working with her, she is independent and yet, follows my ideas and even gets them before I express them !!

One day she posted a picture on her Facebook wall, and it showed up on my new feeds. I looked at this picture and it made absolutely no doubts in my mind that it was the inspiration I was looking for for my next shoot with her.

A few messages to Marie -Eve and Marjorie ( hair stylist https://www.facebook.com/Hair-by-Marie-Eve-Soucy , and makeup artist : https://www.facebook.com/BeautifulEnhancement ) a group message to them all, and the shoot was all set !

So we met at the Airport for a coffee and to discuss the shoot, and we headed to this beautiful forest spot I found while on a hike with a friend of mine.

Michaela was sitting in the back of the pick-up truck and the tailgate makeover started.

We shot 3 different looks, and I think I can say it for all of us : it was great ! We spent 2 hours and a half ( give or take a few minutes) and before we knew it, we were all headed back to our respective homes. I knew from the moment we got together that we will have some great images.

Here is a little behind the scenes of this photoshoot : ( cell phone pictures by Marie-Eve and Marjorie) :

Ayda & Amanuel : love life forever [Calgary Family Photographer] http://www.imagesbylaurence.com/blog/2015/9/ayda-amanuel-love-life-forever-calgary-family-photographer I've met Ayda about 6 years ago, as I was working full time for a distribution company, right before I made the switch to be a full time photographer. She came to me one day, and told me she was getting married and would like me to document her wedding. I was ecstatic because I had a great relationship with her already, and I felt honoured that she would ask me.

So we went for the engagement photo session and had a blast !! I managed to have an Excalibur on site, knowing that Amanuel was enjoying beautiful cars. His eyes when he saw the car and realized we will use it as prop ....... it was priceless !!

That day, Amanuel ( who is soft, gentle, amazing soul) told me, with tears in his eyes : my goal in life is to marry Ayda, have children and be a good father and husband. If I achieve this goal, I'll be the happiest. 

Well, Amanuel, I can tell you you nailed it. You have a beautiful family, a loving wife and a successful career. And ...... a photographer who had a hard time stopping her tears when she saw your daughters at our meeting point. I was so happy to meet those two little girls, ( well, I knew Hiwot already for taking her baby pictures) and I can say that this day ( September 29th, 5 years after their wedding day ) was a great day for me, filled with love and joy of being with those people I hope I'll keep in my life for the years to come. 

I know I have a soft heart and I get attached to my clients ( who always become friends ....), but I can tell with no hesitation : Ayda and Amanuel ( and now Hiwot and Wudassie) you will always have a special place in my heart.

Sheilagh & Ian, married [Comox Wedding Photographer] http://www.imagesbylaurence.com/blog/2015/8/sheilagh-ian-married-comox-wedding-photographer Back in July 2014, Sheilagh and I discussed her wedding photography. 

On the 17th of August this year, she came back to me, again, asking me if I was available to shoot her wedding in .......5 days !! 

I was not actually, as I was booked in Calgary for the weekend, flight ticket was purchased and arrangements were made with clients for their photo shoots...... 

I know how stressful it is to get closer to the wedding date, I can't imagine the amount of stress she must have been going through not having a photographer being 5 days away from her wedding. She booked someone, but at the last minute they both agreed it wouldn't be possible.

I changed my flight to Calgary, contacted my clients ( who were all, but one, okay to reschedule) and I went to meet with Sheilagh and Ian to discuss their wedding.

When she opened the door, I was in shock with her beauty and .... for some reason, I couldn't control my words and I told her how beautiful she is. I shocked myself, I'm usually very self controlled.

Meeting went well, they both have a strong personality and know what they want, me, I'm sure I can provide them with nice imagery of their day so : they booked me and I had 3 days to scout locations and get ready. I contacted Darren who agreed right away to come over to Comox to second shoot, we went through the details and all was set.

Saturday came fast enough ..... and we were on the game to shoot what would be a beautiful wedding, with amazing people, very nice guests and family, stunning locations, good food !! All was put together to make a memorable wedding. 

They had the cutest little girls walking on the red carpet : Grace and Sofie, 2 and a half years old twins, as cute as pie were the flower girls ( and they made it to the end of the carpet :) ) and Olivia was the ring barer, beautiful little girl whose Dad was in the bridal party. 

 

They had a beautiful very emotional ceremony by the Puntledge Rive in Courtenay. 

We took the bridal party and couple pictures at the Filberg Heritage Park in Comox ( http://filberg.com ) and the wedding reception was at the Westerly Hotel in Courtenay ( Best western Hotel).

All the decor was provided by http://www.allin1partyshop.com

Thank you so much Sheilagh and Ian for allowing us to be there at your wedding, it was our honour to be able to document it.

We wish you all the best for the years to come.
