My first venture out to Willbrand Creek Park in Abbotsford with a nice big family for photos was a bit of a gamble… But it turned out a fabulous location and I’m eager to shoot there again! Also, I’m planning on taking the kids there to bike ASAP because flat gravel pathways = easy biking for all ages.
Mountains on the wide angle lens end up looking much smaller…
…then mountains on a longer lens. The family hasn’t moved locations, but see how the different lengths of lens create a completely different look for the background?
Thanks so much K family for this session!
Meet my sweet niece Jayna! She recently turned 1 and a session was in order to capture her at this stage! We headed to Aldergrove Regional Park one fine sunny evening and she definitely had no problem with Auntie Karin capturing her personality! We love you Jayna Bayna (as Evan would say)!
Sweet Madilyn slept and slept and slept some more! It was so lovely to take photos of your family again and I’m looking forward to seeing progress shots on the house that you’re building!
During spring break, our family of 6 decided to hit up Stanley Park. We are camping in Banff and Jasper this summer and need to ‘practice’ being out in public all together.
I’m joking. But mostly I’m serious.
After driving the loop around the park to gain our bearings, our first stop was the hollow tree. Believed to be about 1000 years old, this tree remnant is the largest left in the park. As I age, these types of facts are more and more interesting to me.
Mattias, age 7, is interested in photography and has learned how to focus on DSLR camera and takes a decent photo. He snapped this one of Art.
We stopped at Second Beach for lunch.
Self-timer photos. Camera propped on camera bag on stroller.
The source of Kate’s delight is a seagull.
Chasing the seagull.
Off to the first playground at the park.
You really have to follow this girl around. She loves to explore.
I may frame this one of the 3 boys. I love the gnarly tree (and the kids).
Then we were off to visit the totem poles.
Noah loves learning about the First Nations and he insisted that we discuss the story of each totem pole.
Across from the parking lot from the totem poles was a beautiful view of the city.
This one also might be a framer.
Then we walked the seawall for a bit.
Back in the warm van, Kate thought she should drive.
Then to Café Crêpe for dinner. Yum.
Watching our crepes being made.
Mattias thought that it was so cool that the crepe place was next to the Orpheum where he had visited on a field trip earlier this year.
We still had an hour of parking left so we wandered the streets of Vancouver. Mattias pushed the stroller through ‘rush hour’ pedestrian traffic.
