Getting to spend a beautiful summer morning with a fun-loving big happy family at one of my favourite local locations (Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve) is pretty awesome! And feeling welcomed like I’m one of their own makes it even that much better! We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day to capture some memories for this lovely group. Thanks for hanging out Janzen clan, you guys were so much fun!
Can you tell I’m playing catch-up on my 2015 sessions? I feel like that’s a re-occuring theme for us photographers these days! This one goes back to last February, when my aunt and uncle had their kids and grand daughter all in town at the same time! Which we all know happens few & far between as the “kids” grow up and move away… so the time together is so special. So we took advantage of this visit to capture some memories – and what a perfect day it was down by Okanagan Lake! Love this family, thanks for letting me capture these for you! Enjoy :)
Ps – I visit Kelowna several times a year, so if you’re there when I am and want a photo session, we can make something work!
And if you are looking for some drum lessons, my cousin is super talented freelance percussionist and educator serving the Southern Ontario region. You can check out more about Jayden Beaudoin Percussion on his Facebook page and website!
This was one of the most fun sessions ever! I got to spend an INCREDIBLY beautiful fall afternoon with this amazing family!! I’ve known Mark and Amanda for years – we go back to highschool days (which feel like way too long ago!) – and it’s been so fun watching their family grow! Their 4 boys are handsome as ever and I think it’s safe to say they had a good time! Amanda brought a bubble machine along for the end, so the boys had a riot with that… See, family photos CAN BE FUN! Take a look!!
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. I love meeting your families and getting to hang out with y’all during your family sessions! Hearing your inside jokes… seeing your big brother-little brother squabbles… and sometimes if I’m lucky, I even get to visit your family home, like I did with the Gietema’s, and see where you all grew up and spent most of your lives together! Makes me so honoured to capture memories of the growing family all together again :) Thank you G family for showing me around your beautiful property and spending the afternoon with me!
