Chrissy + Mick | North Vancouver Maternity Photographer | Moments –by Lauren

On my way home from Victoria last month, I knew there was a required pit-stop I needed to make with my camera in tow. Chrissy + Mick – who I’ve known since our University days – are currently counting down the days until they welcome their first baby this summer.

As a photographer who loves nothing more than telling people’s stories, it comes as no surprise that documenting the milestones of friends is that much more special.  After living across the country and then being asked to join their wedding party for their big day this past summer…this was the first time I’ve had these two lovebirds in front of my lens – and we certainly took advantage of it!

With the whole day to ourselves, Chrissy and I borrowed Mick to stroll the Lynn Canyon trails on this lunch break and then spent the rest of the day making memories. We might have shared a few laughs here and there too. We perfectly dodged raindrops and captured this mama-to-be against some gorgeous backdrops that only Vancouver could offer. [Could seriously shoot here all day every day…]

Check out a few faves of Mr & Mrs Heck below, and leave them some love before they become a trio!

30 Under 30

I'm still coming down from cloud nine after hearing on Friday that I was chosen as one of the top 30 Under 30 Wedding Photographers in Canada by The Canada Photo Convention!! (...so crazy to be typing that!) 

I'm beyond thrilled and humbled to be surrounded by a group of such amazing photographers and loved scrolling through the album of winning images! I'd love for you to go check them out here - see my own featured page and interview here - and also see my winning set of images below!!

 A HUGE thank you to my brides and grooms for trusting me with their big days, as well as everyone who has supported me along this amazing journey as I cross this off of my list of career goals! Can't wait to see what the rest of this year brings as wedding season gets into full swing in a few weeks! Woohoo!
