Okay it’s actually Teagan and Nathan but boy does she hate the beard!! I have to admit that I really like the beard as it really gives Nathan a unique look. Kinda hipster’ish. We both appreciated the fact that he trimmed it for the session though!! Now I’ve photographed with Teagan before but not Nathan. Teagan and I were joking before the session that we hoped he could keep up and did he ever. This guy is a natural in front of the camera!
We’ve been planning this session for a few months now and after a few non-starts we finally got it done. Weather was great (ie. no rain) and so we started in Downtown Langely then moved our way to Derby Reach. It’s fun to mix up the locations up. A bit of urban and a bit of country. We were going for a bit of a fashiony, editorial, lifestyle portrait session and I think we achieved that.
I really enjoyed this session as these are both really great people who care about each other and it shows. Thanks again guys!
The Soon Family. I thought the name sounded familiar but couldn’t put 2 and 2 together until the day of our session. While getting organized with this lovely family I was chatting with the patriarch, Gerald. I asked him how he came to contact and book me for our session that day and it turned out that he was cousins with my Aunt Gina! It’s definitely a small world we live in.
So Gerald and I had planned this session to coincide with his daughter and her family were visiting from Stockholm. I have to say I can appreciate the care and attention they put into this session. From the very beginning I sent an information sheet on how to best dress as a family for a session. You want to coordinate colours and tones but not match. They did a wonderful job of this despite the vast distances apart. I imagine there was a lot of Facetiming to get it all right.
The Soons were a terrific, welcoming, and willing to try anything family. Thanks everyone, you were wonderful to work with!!
I’m super late in blogging the beautiful Shehani’s Senior/Grad photo session but better late than never!
Shehani contacted me at the beginning of June wanting to get some grad/senior photos done after seeing Nicole’s and Tyler’s photos. After some back and forth with her and her mom we planned a session for the following week. Shehani wanted a more outdoor natural setting similar to Nicole’s photos and believe it or not we did our session all within walking distance of her family’s home. Luckily, they live in a more rural area and there was no shortage of interesting areas to photograph in! She really did rock this session. Absolutely amazing.
Best of luck at University next year!
Your Grad photos should reflect who you are. You do not have to have the same grad photos as the other 800 kids in your graduating class.
Now some photos of the stunning Shehani.
