It is always a good day when I get to photograph the Smith family. The kids are super sweet (not to mention cute) and fun to take pictures of. This week we had a special reason to have a session, wee little Lillian, the newest addition to the family. At just 6 months old, she is the perfect age to photograph and capture all those cute smiles and chubby cheeks. It certainly doesn’t hurt that she can sit up but not yet crawl…..no escaping. haha! We met over the weekend at one of my favourites places to shoot in West Vancouver. Tall grass, wild flowers, washed up logs & the ocean kinda make up the perfect spot for taking pictures……the sun shining was an extra bonus. Evelyn & Austin (the older 2) were full of grins & giggles and bounced around letting me catch their true personalities while still capturing the family as a whole unit too. Evelyn is the same age as my little girl so I can really get to her level and play like a 4 year old……well I can probably do that anytime but who is keeping track 😉 I am so grateful to be able to meet and photograph gorgeous fun families like the Smiths.
I shot this session with my Nikon D800 and the 70-200 2.8 lens…both are my go tos for session alike these…..I love the ease of use of the 800 and the versatility it gives me, especially when I am backlighting my portraits. The 70-200 has such beautiful bokeh and compression…I wish I could use it for all my shoots.
