I Want to Be… 2015

child photography, children photographer, school student photography

Alwin and I started the “I Want to Be…” program to inject something fun with children photography. It has been four years since we were first tickled by the amount of creativity of these precocious kids. We have seen our fair share of fighter pilots to a variety of princesses. So without further ado, here are a few awesome photos of the 2015 “I Want to be” portraits!

Location: An undisclosed secret location in Maple Ridge…..Just north of Lougheed Highway behind a private school. :D

School: Roots to Wings Pre-School

Gina & Tito in New Westminster

Vancouver Engagement Photography, New Westminster Wedding, Engagement Sessionm, e-session

Hey where’s everyone?

That’s because it is raining. Feel that? See.

But it’s summer!

Tell it to the dark clouds.

Ahh yes. Despite the summer heat of 2015 with long stretches of dry season. You can always count on our photoshoots to almost draw in the rain clouds. California you got drought? Hire us for a photoshoot. We bring rain. Hah!

Thank God the shower was turned to a gentle spray…. maybe of divine providence to clean up the air for Gina & Tito’s engagement photoshoot in New Westminster. True enough a normally bustling urban New West was devoid of people and we got the entire antique row to ourselves. Win!!! :)

the Chan Family at Tipperary Park, New Westminster

New Wesminster Family Photography, Portrait in New West, Tipperary

A little two years’ ago we had the opportunity to photograph this trio at Granville Island. Despite travelling half-way round the globe to Vancouver, we made the Chans feed ducks back then. Well they are back looking for more! The last time we saw Charlyne, she was just learning how to walk. Now she is just a mighty mite zipping about! We have no idea where this little 4 year old stores all her energy!

So this time instead of feeding feathered friends, we hit the Japanese garden inspired Tipperary Park for some awesome cherry blossom photography.

the Adelsons at West Vancouver


Ahh…. the Adelsons. Where do we start? Well for starters, this much talked about photoshoot between Halina the matriach of the family and Alwin took place years ago. But timing has always been a challenge. You see they are a busy bunch. Every family member seems to be in different parts of the continent at any one time. Therefore out of the blue we got a call from an excited Halina. Everyone’s here!!! It was like a lunar eclipse event! We pretty much dropped everything and off we went to their gorgeous home in West Vancouver.

Instead of heading off to an outdoor location, we decided to just simply capture the various relational interactions at home. After all, when all is said and done…. it is the home life that are most precious. Check out the photos!

VI Kids 2015 | Maple Ridge Portraits

Kids portrait, child photography, vancouver

Here at VI Central we have one overarching rule. That is everyone involved be themselves and have a little bit of fun in our portrait session. When it comes to children photography, we often turn that fun-quotient up a few notches! Well once again, we got to work with some amazing 4-year olds for our latest shoot at Maple Ridge, BC. This time around, we added a rear lighting effects to provide a touch of high-fashion magazine look.

Check out some shots and behind the scenes images!
