We visited Salmon Arm last week, and I took advantage of the scenery to do a session with my cousin Cheryl. She recently became engaged to a really nice guy named Dave, and they seem really happy with each other. Cheryl and Dave were kind enough to drive us up to my hometown to visit my grandfather, who is 95. It was a pretty emotional journey for me, wonderful, and incredibly sad at the same time. Cheryl wanted a shoot to capture the moment she is in now, a lovely reason to celebrate. This really resonated with me after seeing my Gramps. All we have are these moments, we must enjoy and celebrate each and every one. Cheryl was a little nervous in front of the camera, but as you can see she had little reason. We even managed to convince Dave to hop in for a few!

While on Vacation in Vancouver I got to sneak in a session with my beautiful sister and her husband Jeff. It was so wonderful to see them, it had been a year and a half since we last had the chance. It's so expensive to fly across the country, and life has a way of keeping you busy. It did me wonders to see my family! Cait and Jeff weren't too happy with their wedding photos from a few years back, and wanted to capture some good shots of the two of them together. I wish I'd had more time, and I wish we had been able to do our second planned shoot with cowboy boots and guitars... next time :) They really are a great couple, they compliment each other well. Cait and Jeff wanted a casual shoot to reflect their fun, laid back personalities, so we headed down to Kits beach to snap some pictures. I hope I earned my stay in their guest room, lol.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of working with the Lim family again. It was their son Jayden's dedication, a ceremony at church, followed by a big party at home. Jayden is very fortunate to be growing up surrounded by so many loving friends and family- and many cousins! I am also lucky to have such wonderful clients- they welcome me to their home and treat me like a member of the family. They even sent me home with leftovers, lol. The food was incredible and plentiful, and everyone had a wonderful time.
