Family Session in North Vancouver

Vancouver and the North Shore have been super smoky lately due to the crazy wild fires that are burning in the surrounding areas; I was a bit concerned how this would affect family sessions and the images.  The Boneroves scheduled their family pictures a while back for when they were in town from Alberta, so we had no idea this was going to happen.  I shot them a year ago (here) and we had a beautiful blue sky, sunny day……it definitely was join to be different for this shoot.  Luckily the skies cleared  bit for our shoot so it actually was  a really pretty light and we could finally see the skyline of downtown Vancouver 🙂  We met at the Waterfront Park in North Vancouver and set down to play some games and capture the specialness of their family.  Tanner and Harlow were super keen to play so we played a lot of games…including who can knock over the photographer :0!  I’m not sure who won, but certainly not my back 😉  These guys were so polite and well behaved, it made shooting them super easy.  They even sat together and just laughed – thank you!!!  I have had a lot of brother & sister siblings lately and I love the bond that they have.  Big brothers just naturally look after their little sisters – it is so special.  These guys will have some cool moments that night to look back on and hang on their walls – you can see what their love looks like.

Family Pictures at Lighthouse Park

I met with the Pidwysocki family last weekend for some fun family pictures; we decided to meet at Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver.  Shooting at Lighthouse Park is always gorgeous, the greens are stunning, the water is close by and there are amazing boulders to hang our on that look fantastic in images.  Little Chloe and older brother Jack were excited to hit the trails and find the waterfront…..through the most detoured route we could find 😉    There were lots of moments to capture, from scaling rocks, balancing on downed trees to racing down the path, it was all fun.  Chloe is the same age as my little girl and just as spunky.  She was not going to let her big brother beat her at anything 🙂  We finally made it to the water and the view was well worth the walk.  It is simply stunning down on the waterfront.  You can see everything from downtown Vancouver to Vancouver Island; such a treat.  We took a few more family pictures and headed on our way.  The route back was a much more direct and simple making it a quick walk back.  My favourite moment of the session was when I asked Chloe to tell me the funniest word she knew and she said a**hole!  haha!  It certainly made her laugh like crazy 🙂
