I believe in the power of photographs as they remind us of moments long gone and bring back the feeling and love of particular moments otherwise long forgotten.

Kelowna Family & Lifestyle Photographer

Preserving elements of new beginnings and milestones in your family is my passion and my gift
to you.

...a Kelowna Family and Lifestyle Photographer capturing milestones and love stories for families that value relationships, attention to detail, nature, and authentic celebrations.
As a little girl growing up in Germany I was lucky to have a mother who understood the value of documenting the lives of her children. Now I have albums full of beautiful printed photographs that give me a sense of who I am, where I came from, and it also helps me now feel very connected in what I want for my child. Because of that I have such a love and dedication to capture these moments.

My greatest joy is when you can put down your iPhone and allow me to document those memories so that I can help provide you with beautiful images and heirloom albums that you can look through and let you connect to yourself.

Working with Esther over the past 7 years has been such a pleasure! She captures exactly what we ask for every time. This last shoot we had with our 4 children, we were specific about the real moments that we envisioned and she caught all of them. From those unexpected bickering moments between the siblings to all the hugs and silly ones. Thank you Esther!

It was a pleasure having you take our pictures! You captured our family so well and made us feel comfortable during the whole shoot. I loved the way you were able to get our little one to smile, and get all the candid shots. We also felt at ease knowing you had a location picked out and seeing the end result was everything I wanted for our family pictures!
