I was so happy to squeeze in a session for Joanne and David this month! 💕They are two of our best-est friends around with their cutie son Jason (he's our 3rd best friend, I think) ... and Joanne's expecting! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ See more of their photos on the blog! P.S. Looking to book family photos with me this winter? I book 2-3 months in advance! Shoot an email over to email@example.com + I'll get you my pricing details + booking calendar. .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #jamiedelainephotography #vancouverphotographer #vancouverportraitphotographer #vancouverfamilyportraits⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #vancouverfamilyphotographer #vancouverfamilyphotography #surreyfamilyphotographer #langleyfamilyphotographer #abbotsfordfamilyphotographer #fraservalleyphotographer #familyphotos #familyphotographer #richmondfamilyphotographer
To state the obvious, international traveling is a lot of work. There's time away from life and work to prepare for, mixed with a long list of things to purchase and/or reminder yourself to not forget. Lists, lists, lists. 👇🏼 But when you're there--immersed in another culture, and it's challenging your worldview (once more), it's worth it all. I'm excited to be flying to Nepal tomorrow for the next 2 weeks. It's my second trip there this year... and I can't wait. 💕 I'll try to post when I can, but honestly--Instagram is just Instagram--and I've never been one to let these little squares run my life. ✌🏼
Here’s the thing, creative entrepreneurs. Some days you’re just going to feel like quitting. And guess what? You can.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 😳⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Let that sink in. Ask yourself, “Do I want to quit?” If you do, go for it. But most of us will think, “Hell. NO! I want this!” So great—cry if you need to, get some fresh air, steep some green tea and pick yourself up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💕⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Because *nothing* worth doing comes easy. Can I be real with you and say about once a month I think, “I’m OUT… of energy, ideas, brain-power and drive.” ✋🏼And the next day I remember, “We gotta get going or quit, Jamie.” Because I want it baaaad. 🥂 So let’s get to it. You with me? .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #risingtidesociety #thatsdarling #ohwowyes #creativeentrepeneur #makersmovement #makersgonnamake #wearethemakers #doitfortheprocess #creativelifehappylife #creativehappylife #photographereducation #photographymarketing

Brides: you will NEVER regret hiring an incredible planner/day-of coordinator like @alexadreamgroup from @dreamgroupplanners! 🎉 I mean, really... do you want to supervise the set-up of your decor, run the rehearsal, coordinate your team of vendors, make sure the guestbook gets moved to the right place at the right time?! Of course not! 😂 Let yourself (and your friends and family) relax and enjoy the wedding day, knowing an incredible coordinator has it covered! 💕 (P.S. Yes! This engagement photos is of Alexa + her groom Patrick... can't wait to be their photographer next summer! 💕) . . . . #jamiedelainephotography #vancouverphotographer #vancouverportraitphotographer #vancouverweddingphotographer #huffpostido #engagementphotos #vancouverengagementphotographer #engagementsession #bcweddingphotographer #realcouplesofBC

Happy Monday, friends! We took Friday off from work and made our weekend in the city for Randy's (early) 30th Birthday into an extra-long one! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 💕⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Love celebrating this buddy of mine, because he deserves it.

Do you feel swallowed by the “competition” in your local photography industry? . You’ve tried advertising to attract new inquiries… but very few (if any) of those leads are qualified--they all seem to be searching for a photographer based only on PRICE. . You’re left wondering, “HOW do I book clients who value what I do?” 👇🏼 Next week I'm bringing back my popular FREE webinar: 5 Marketing Mistakes You Might Be Making. . You can sign up at the link in my profile to join us on TUESDAY at 12:30PM PST! See you then!
Happy Halloween! 🙌🏼What is the *best* costume you've ever seen? I can't say I'm a fan of costumes... I'm a bit of a grump when it comes to the creativity + time it takes to put them together. So, I'd have to say my favourite was Three Hold Punch Jim from The Office. 😂Anyone know what I'm talking about? Haha! . . . . . #risingtidesociety #thatsdarling #ohwowyes #creativeentrepeneur #makersmovement #makersgonnamake #wearethemakers #doitfortheprocess #creativelifehappylife #creativehappylife #photographereducation #photographymarketing
