Heading back to my hometown of Nanaimo for a Pacific Northwest Family Session is always on the table. I love to travel. And, I love to get outside.
For this session, I didn’t have to spend a second researching the location because I know it well; as did the family that reached out to book a session with me.
Alex (Dad) and I grew up together. My mother and his mother were the BEST of friends. Our families often gathered for outings and picnics, so I was thrilled when Alex and Maggie (Mom) wanted to meet for the lifestyle session with their daughter Brayley at Westwood Lake Park.
Normally, it’s a busy place — with families exploring and playing throughout the park. But for some reason, on this spring day, we had the park to ourselves. And, with the sun a little lower on the horizon the timing seemed perfect.
Ina (Grandma) is a saint. She has helped my brother and I along since our mother’s passing, so I was thrilled to have her join the family for a few of the images.
Alex and Maggie have a beautiful little girl who loves being outdoors. Plus, Mom and Dad took turns entertaining Brayley for some cute candid images.
As the first day of summer approaches, the days are getting longer and more tiring for the wee ones. If you’re looking for a Family sunrise or sunset session, contact me now for fall bookings. You won’t forget, if you book today. Plus, you’ll be on top of your family Christmas cards early this year!
