The second installment in my personal project for 2014. Five minutes with us (see the last five minutes here). Short and sweet and from our recent trip to Kamloops. These images may have been taken quickly but they include all three of kids in one place at the same time…a small miracle!

The girls had a the week off school so we took the opportunity to pack up and head to Grandma’s place in Kamloops. My Mom moved from North Vancouver to Kamloops when my oldest was one year old. She visits often and we try to make the trip up at least a few times a year. The weather was beautiful but all three of my kids were sick. Sorry Mom!

These images were captured on a quick trip to the park to get some much needed fresh air and soak up some sunshine. I was using my AF-S 24-70 mm f2.8 lens which I have been neglecting for the past few months. It is funny how I go through phases as to which lens is my favourite. The 24-70 mm is big, bulky and a bit too flashy when at the park playing with my kids. I usually bring a smaller lens when out and about or just use my iPhone. I was glad I brought the “big camera” this day and even more happy that I chose to pack the 24-70 mm. I love having the ability to capture the wide angled image and the beautiful scenery.Vancouver_Family_Photographer

This is the first in a series of posts I will share throughout the year around the theme Print Your Art. In this digital age it is too easy to forget to print our images. I am guilty of this and I am sure some of you are too. We let them sit on our hard drives collecting imaginary dust. But the thing is…images look so much better in print!

Now don’t get me wrong, I do sell Digital Files from my photography sessions. In fact, Digital Files are my most popular product. Even so I like to ensure my clients leave their custom photography session with some printed items. This is why I offer a number of beautiful, archival quality boutique products. Each digital file purchase also comes with a Digital File Care Card outlining how to get your Digital Files off your computer and into your life.

One of my favourite products to showcase the images from your photography session is an Heirloom Keepsake Album. These stunning 10×10 albums are custom designed to suit each clients needs. The interior pages are real photographic prints that lay beautifully flat. These albums will hold all your favourite images from our time together and are designed to last a lifetime. Imagine your little baby showing her own baby this album many years from now.
