Sera and Seb

In a few months Sera and Seb will be married. Before that day they wanted some images in some places that are close to them, but too far from their wedding locations to get to on the big day. So we headed out to Sooke to Sera’s family’s farm. This is the place where Sera grew up camping with her cousins, moving cows with her Grandpa, and exploring the creek on a hot day. Now it is where the family comes together to spend time with each other and to enjoy the land and of course move the cows. Sera’s Grandpa was very sweet to take us around the property via tractor and trailer. We are not sure how the cows felt about these strange visitors with cameras but they tolerated us long enough for Sera and Seb to get some images with them. Sera and Seb also love the ocean and are using birds as a design element in their wedding decor so on our way back to town we stopped at a beach with some box style bird houses out on the docks. We had a great afternoon with Sera and Seb and now we can’t wait for their wedding in April!

Shields Family

There are times, amid the hectic life of running our own business, that we are stopped and reminded that what we do is so much more than taking photographs. So often we are given the privilege of being let in on precious moments that only happen once and we are the ones to hold the memory in place – just as it happened.  This family really reminded us of how precious it is to capture a certain moment in life. We first heard from Lyndsey back in July 2009 she was two years into the process of adopting from Ethiopia. She did not yet have her children but she knew that when she did have them she wanted us to capture images of her new little family. Some families come together easily – others take so so much more time and struggle to create. Lyndsey and Kevin experienced many bumps along their journey but the result is exactly as it was meant to be. They were meant to love Tizita and Bedilu. It took more than two years after her first email to us to have her family all together. How this couple came to be with this little sister and brother is something of a miracle. When we were planning for the shoot Lyndsey told me that this was so important to her because for them this was as small as their kids would ever be to them. They didn’t get to have the baby moments but they wanted to save these moments – how they were when they were all first together. We photographed this family a little over a month after they arrived in Canada. To know how far they had to come to be together and to see how much love they all have for each other already was incredibly special. We know they have such adventures ahead and we are so grateful they chose us to capture just a little of their beginning.  Happy New Year to everyone and all the best in your new beginnings however big or small!
