jayme's boys; destination family photographer

I'm so lucky.
I get to re-live interactions frame-by-frame.  He reaches out for her hand.  Mama fingers an auburn, toddler curl. Big brother smiles as waves crash by little brothers' feet.  Moments pass before me again and again.
And it's pretty much the best thing.
Jayme is a super talented photographer, whose work I've admired for years.
(Bonus, her personal adventures look to be about as fun as her family sessions.  Find her, if you don't already know The Paper Deer Photography.)
Jayme's destination family session, in West Van, was testimony to the sweet simple things in life.  An ocean beach, when they live in Alberta. A shirtless toddler, showing scars of  heart surgery. A summer sunset, offering a coolness after a sweaty day. And finding a section of a crowded beach, all to ourselves.
It brings me life.
I also love the softness of the BC wildfire haze and from water occasionally splashing on my lens. Or maybe it was that time I log-rolled on giant driftwood and saved the cameras but lost the roll;) Whatever.  I don't even care.  I have as many images from their family session as a small wedding.
Maybe with two shooters.
So we're starting with Jayme and her boys.  There will be more...

maternity at the river; christina lake vacation portraits

Jill, her maternity bump, some belly laughs in a swampy river and some pretty low light make for a lovely combo.
Albertan Jill reached out for vacation, maternity portraits at Christina Lake near their families' property.  We discussed wardrobe and locations to bring her vision life.  I love collaborating.  I love my clients.
I think she's having another girl.  What do you think?
