A few days upon our return from our honeymoon and we were both right back into work. For me, this meant taking an afternoon drive up Chilliwack mountain for a family portrait session. I was completely enthralled by all the Fall colour – one of my all time favourite times of the year! I’d never been to this neck of Chilliwack before and it was beautiful…as was the family I was about to photograph. Friends of Shane’s from high school, the incredibly sweet Cheryl and her Shane live in a gorgeous log cabin (which he happens to build) with a stunning view of the river and surrounding mountains. I love that we got to document them with their kids at their home; a personal connection + obvious comfort = great photos that are real and your very own.
Thank you to Cheryl, Shane, Donovan and Calum for inviting me into your home, for braving the cold outdoors, and for being so wonderful. Hope to see you guys again soon!
