I didn't expect any of it; I just wore Bogs for the farm.
But the beauty of this place changed me. It made me slow down physically - when I had to let the giant black bear cross the dirt road ahead of me - and spiritually - when I had to thank the Creator for the feast of this view.
I often feel as though I was meant to move to the Kootenays (from the GVRD) years ago to learn life-lessons. I'm pretty sure one of which is to appreciate the beauty of nature. I used to just visit nature like it was a distant relative. You know it's always there but you see each other infrequently. And it was always a bit of a process to relax enough to enjoy each other's company. Although I often still find nature a little cold for my delicate sensibilities, I am learning to put on the wool socks and deal.
I'm thankful to Kelsey & Adams for inviting me to this magical place. How fortunate they are to have this property to always bring the family - she with the auburn curls, he with the great dimples and the sweet son with the bluest eyes - "home".
Including frames from my drive, which is always part of the experience! Some of my clients request the "environmental portraits" to showcase their family session in its fullest. I like these kinds;)
