Extended family vacation FUN -- Victoria BC photographers

This sweet extended family from Ontario contacted me to photograph them while on vacation here in Victoria. They had a little 3 year old with them, and were concerned that he would not cooperate for the photos. It turns out that they attended a wedding the day before, and tried and tried, but weren't able to get any good photos of him. I could understand their concern -- he was one of the most energetic 3 year olds we had ever met!

I am happy to report that he was no match to my also very energetic assistant/hubby, and we were able to get many beautiful photos where he looks like a little angel! :) I never get tired of hearing from my clients that the photo session went much better than they expected, and that they had FUN! :) :) :)

Thanks for stopping by, and until next time! xo

A fellow photographer's beautiful family -- Victoria BC photographers

Hi everyone! We are in the midst of our busy fall season, but I just had to stop by and share this session with you guys. This is the family of a lovely and talented local photographer Caterina Bova, and if you are in need of newborn photos, check out her website, she does beautiful work!

Doesn't she have the cutest family? Just like me, she is always behind the camera, and wanted to document her family's special connections at this time in their lives, including her own connections with her little ones. She did such a good job with coordinating her family's outfits for their photo session, it definitely makes a big difference in the final photos!

Thanks for stopping by and until next time! :)

"Runaway eyes!" That's what my husband calls children who are more into everything else other than looking at the camera. I like the challenge of these sessions, because if the parents aren't expecting eye contact, and if I can get it -- BONUS! :)

Every family has moments when their child is more interested in toys, or leaves/rocks/somewhat alive animal, than they are in smiling at the camera... and that's okay. Everyone deals with that at one time or another. The trick is involving them in the "play" of the photo session -- and that's exactly what we did with this family.

Looking at the images, you wouldn't know the kids were not really into getting their photos done -- but throw in my amazing assistant, and being verrrry quick with the camera -- and voila! Picture magic!

I am so excited to share this session with you guys! This family was so fun and easygoing, and even brought their adorable furry family member Murphy along. It was a very bright Fall day, but as the sun began to set, the light.... the light became just magical!

I have been wanting to do a family photo session on top of a mountain forever, but no one has taken me up on it... until now. Now can you guys see why?!! :)
