I was so excited when Ella contacted me about shooting her wonderful family in Deep Cove, North Vancouver. It one of my very favourite places in the Vancouver area! It has a very quaint, ‘small town’, sea-side village vibe… all while being just 20 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Vancouver. No summer is complete without a day spent in Deep Cove!
We met “at the icecream parlour in town” (love that!) and went off to explore the park from there. Their boys, 7 & 5 years, were so wonderful to work with and so cooperative! Quick to give genuine smiles, and happy to follow my loose posing direction. I heard Ella remark several times, “Why don’t you pose like this for Mommy?!” which made me laugh!
There were a few aspects of this shoot that made it extra special::
1- It took place on Ella & Scott’s 11th wedding anniversary! HUGE congratulations to them!
2- Ella’s Parents were in town from England during the session, and it was so awesome to include them in the session. It’s not often that I get to shoot an ‘extended’ family like this…Though, I have to say; While grandma & grandpa may LIVE far away, I didn’t get the feeling that there was anything ‘extended’ about their incredible relationship with their darling grandsons!
Thanks for an awesome afternoon, M* Family! I hope to see you guys around the Holidays for some fun Holiday Portraits! xoxo
