Everything seemed to line up for this gorgeous family session that took place back at the end of August. The forecast called for rain on the originally scheduled date so we moved the session up a few days to the first non-rainy day in the forecast. Not raining but not sunny either. Mostly cloudy actually but we decided to go for it seeing as how this was Vancouver and we could never be too sure about when our next dry day would be.
When I first arrived on site the sky was quite overcast and the sun was completely hidden behind the clouds. I was feeling pretty bummed out about this but at least it was still warm out which is always a big plus when photographing kids. And luckily for us, the sun made an appearance after all and we were able to capture some of that gorgeous golden light against the dramatic cloudy sky that night.
This family was the sweetest too. Just look at them! Candace and Nick have two little guys just like I do so I already knew that I would love our time together. I could tell right away that this mama and papa loved doting on their little boys and this kind of connection is why I adore photographing young families so much. Sweet little N who had recently just turned one, was feeling a little under the weather but was mostly smiles through it all. And turned out it just happened to be one of the nights when older brother R moonlighted as a real-life superhero (ahem, Gekko from PJ Masks if you didn’t know!). So much fun against the most beautiful backdrop. Thank you, L family, for letting me capture some of those sweet moments between you guys. xx
