lifestyle family photographer: childhood unplugged

July 1st, 2016 by sharaleep | No Comments »

if you ever see a massive plastic beach ball in the store and you think to yourself “why would I want a massive plastic beach ball?”, just buy it.  hours upon hours of entertainment…followed by a few moments of intense fighting and pain.  it’s all worth it, just ask my kids (during the entertainment part).  more childhood unplugged stories can be found here!

lifestyle family photographer | the herfsts: new life

June 8th, 2016 by sharaleep | 3 Comments »

becoming a family of four can be a real challenge, especially when you have a toddler with a strong personality, but these lovelies are taking it all in stride.  it doesn’t hurt when the newest addition is as adorable as otis is, either.  i got to spend an early morning hanging out with them in their beautiful home and it was so sweet to see how they all care for one another, especially how the “little mama” looked out for her brother.

vancouver lifestyle photographer | childhood unplugged: june

i have a confession to make.  i have serious “little red hen” syndrome and if you don’t know what that is, i suggest you track down a copy of the book and give it a quick read.  not sure where it came from, maybe it’s because i’m a middle child and slightly obsessed with fairness (insert sheepish grin).  all that to say, when the kids say they want something in particular to eat, i’m usually pretty quick to say yes…as long as they help me make it.  this time it was strawberry lemonade, so off the the fields we went, in search of “big, dark beauties” (as they like to call them).

camp qwanoes wedding | levi & janelle: married

May 29th, 2016 by sharaleep | 1 Comment »

they sat in my kitchen while i stood at the stove making grape juice.  they told me about the past and predicted the future, highlighting some of the struggles they have already faced and looking forward to the adventures to come.  levi talked a lot about his pursuit of janelle and she would smile and nod and blush and then in her own thoughtful way inject her perspective on their courtship.  their wedding, they hoped, would be a sweet union of tradition and fun all set in the place they met and eventually fell in love.  they wanted to honour their families and celebrate with the friends who had watched as their relationship had grown and cheered them on when they got engaged.  and they wanted everyone to relax and enjoy themselves in the beauty of God’s creation, from little cousins to grandmas and everyone in between.  as i walk through the images of this day, i feel it all.  all those hopes and wishes and plans…they were all wrapped up in this beautiful package called levi & janelle’s wedding day.

aidan & lorianne: married | pitt meadows wedding

May 16th, 2016 by sharaleep | 1 Comment »

the email that came through was much like many others, “i’m getting married, are you available? etc. etc” which is great, but it’s always nice to hear a bit more from my couples to make sure we will be a good fit.  so i prodded a little and she responded with a very thorough description of how they met (a high school theatre group), their first date (boston pizza) and the sweetest synopsis of their current relationship (“we spend our days working like dogs, eating gluten and corn free stir fry (he has crazy allergies), playing video games, laughing like the children we are at heart, and watching british television.  i’m sure that if he never met me he would have exploded from not laughing ever.  we balance each other out because he makes me want to do things like go to college and get a job and I bring out his silly side that just makes life more fun”).  it was right then and there that i knew we would not just be a good fit, but a perfect one.

travel family photographer | childhood unplugged: april

April 4th, 2016 by sharaleep | 2 Comments »

i’ve had a hard time putting this post together for a couple of reasons; one is that it was a whirlwind and i am struggling to summarize it in words.  the other is that the first few days of images from our travels and the build were lost – my memory card was corrupted.

still, i wanted to share a little bit about what we chose to do with our spring break.  at the end of last year, one of my goals was to serve more together as a family and to connect on a deeper level with other families in our small community.  a couple of weeks later, i was approached by two moms who had kids the same age as ours about potentially going to mexico with an organization they were connected to.  to do what, at the time, we didn’t know.  i said we were interested right away as it meshed with the goals i mentioned, but as i thought about it more, i began to question whether it was a good fit.  looking back, i’m so grateful that we decided to jump in with both feet as it ended up being such a positive time for all of us.

we found ourselves in a small town on a hill, just outside san quintin, mexico, building a three room house for a family of five who had previously been living in a shelter made of scraps of plastic, fibreglass and cardboard.  our kids were on site with us all week, helping frame the walls, paint the trim, build bunkbeds and generally entertain the crew.  we also had the opportunity to visit a local preschool to do crafts and use our poor spanish to make them laugh.

while there is so so much i could say from how proud i was of my kids to how encouraging it was to build a friendship with this sweet family who had never even dreamt of being able to have a home that was safe and dry, i will just say that this was so much more than a “good experience” – i want this to be our way of life.  i want to be looking at ways to love and serve others, i want our kids to think beyond their own needs and try to figure out how to meet the needs of those around them.  while i have zero notions about saving the world, i have also been reminded that the small ripples created by loving others in tangible ways can certainly change it for the better.

vancouver family photographer | childhood unplugged: march

March 1st, 2016 by sharaleep | 3 Comments »

growing up, we were a road tripping kind of family.  pack the lunches, stockpile the books, cram three little girl bodies in the backseat of the tan (it was actually more skin coloured) corolla, roll down the windows and hit the road.  but make sure you went to the bathroom before strapping in because there was no stopping until we reached our destination and if you had to go, you were going on the side of the road.  and i loved it.  it was all about getting to where we were going and negotiating how long little sister was allowed to lean on each big sister while we were getting there.

so when i got married, i had the same mindset.  get there.  but now i had this guy that wanted to stop…to trade drivers (“what? my dad always drove!  and he had back problems”), to go pee (“you’re a dude, going on the side of the road is SO easy for you”) and to – brace yourself – get fast food (“so you’re too good for the soggy peanut butter and honey sandwich i made you four hours ago?”).  it was pure chaos.  add children.  i was so confused.

6 years ago, our lives took a turn that we didn’t expect.  we didn’t have any plans/jobs for the foreseeable future and we felt a little lost.  in a moment of clarity (or a complete lack of judgement), we took out our savings, rented a motorhome packed up our three preschoolers and drove across the country.  it is one of those crazy decisions that i am forever grateful to have made.  we bonded as a family, we saw places you would NEVER travel to as a final destination (read most of nebraska), we connected with so many old friends and made new ones (the motorhome culture is alive and well, folks) and we enjoyed the journey.  we saw a “point of interest” marker on the highway and we would pull over.  we drove through detroit in rush hour and received so many expressive hand gestures from our road companions that we had to close the curtains as to protect our childrens’ eyes.  we celebrated thanksgiving with a dear friend’s family (the friend wasn’t even there) in ontario.  we saw a lake, we stopped.  we had an impromptu parkour session on some concrete benches at a rest stop in eastern oregon.

the conclusion we’ve settled on in recent years is that for our family, at least in its current state, we need to enjoy the journey.  so even on our little trip back from portland last month (5 1/2 hours of driving is peanuts), one of our kids announced they were working on a #2, so instead of finding the nearest gas station, we searched out this amazing playground, got coffee and played monster tag).  did we get home an hour later than we would have?  yep.  was it worth it?  absolutely.  (check out my childhood unplugged friends’ posts when you have a moment!)

i first met shannon years ago at a wedding – she is a gifted photographer and had been asked by the bride to cover their wedding shooting film.  it was so fun to run into her this past year when she was a bridesmaid at a wedding and i was even more thrilled when she called to ask me to document her and andrew’s journey into parenthood.  their home is beautiful and their daughter is the sweetest, most delightful little being you’ve ever met. here’s little miss wynn and her adoring parents:

Vancouver winter wedding | josh & krystal: married

January 9th, 2016 by sharaleep | 1 Comment »

krystal is a woman who doesn’t enter relationship lightly.  she is sweet and quiet and doesn’t like to draw attention to herself.  josh is a man of many words and knows what he wants…and he wanted krystal.  he’s very open about his relentless pursuit of her, waiting patiently at home for her to return from traveling adventures so that he could continue trying to woo her.  and for a time she resisted.  she knew that if she chose to date him, she would be doing so with the outcome of marriage in mind and that was a big decision to make.  once she made it, though, things moved swiftly and any doubts she had were removed.  their commitment to each other is emotional and passionate, but is wholly based in truth…the truth of who they are and what they believe and who they want to be together.  josh shared during the reception that he was never a crier.  he can remember the number of times he had cried on one hand.  but when he shared with krystal’s sister for the first time that he loved krystal, the tears freely flowed…and they haven’t stopped.  their bond drew this untapped part of him out and it is a beautiful sight to behold.  isn’t that what love is all about?  allowing someone to see so deeply inside of you, through facades, darkness and hardness to who you really are and then trusting them to hold that part of you with care; knowing that they can hurt you, but choosing to be open to that pain because being known and loved for who you are is a more satisfying payoff than you could have imagined.  here is a celebration of that love:
