The Doirons are a beautiful family I had the pleasure of photographing for the first time this summer, in a new-to-me location! I met them in the morning at Shubie Campground, where we walked along some of the trails. I hope I get to take more pictures here, I love this little bridge! I have a feeling this spot will be gorgeous in the fall.
I loved the creativity during this shoot. Mom brought some cute floppy hats and a delicate tea set for the girls to enjoy a little tea party. I would also love to mention that mom is rocking a gorgeous vintage green skirt that was her grandmother’s.
I’ve lived in Eastern Passage going on three years, and I’ve always been in love with the patches of lupins that grow near the Shearwater Flyer Trail in Eastern Passage at the end of June. I was so pleased when Erica contacted me, to say that she wanted them as her backdrop to her family pictures this year! Not only was it a stunning day for pictures, but this family was wonderful to photograph. The kids were so sweet and patient with my directions, and mom and dad are funny and easy going. It was a great session, and I’m in love with how these pictures turned out.
In the midst of this uncertainty of COVID-19, you can’t imagine the relief and the joy it brings me to meet families, both old and new, and take their pictures. To know that kids go on being kids, and families go on being families, even in a pandemic. What happiness it is to meet Kelly and her family again; to see how they’ve grown and matured in this last year. And how wonderful it is to know that kids build tree houses and run in the forest, and get really excited about fungi. It’s also fun experimenting with headshots, as Kelly runs her own home-business as a Monat representative.
