We’ve spent so many morning, days, and especially evenings at this park since we moved in. Sometimes we stop and play in the morning before school, we usually stop and play after dropping Kayla off at school, we play before we pick Kayla up, and sometimes again after we pick her up. We even come back and play most nights before bed, when it’s not raining, of course.
A few months back I was asked to photograph a wedding, and it turned out to be one amazing day. The weather was perfect, location (High Point Equestrian Centre in Langley BC) was perfect, the bride and groom were perfect, the family and friends were perfect. The bride planned even the smallest details, made a lot of the decorations herself, and actually made her own wedding cake! The icing on the cake for me was that I got to shoot it with my husband alongside me as my second shooter.
We got the kids all up early to head out to the desert centre one morning (obviously we needed to go when the light was better!). K LOVED learning about all the animals. I shot a lot of these with my manual Tilt Shift, a bunch with my macro, and few with my 24-105, and Paul shot a bunch with his favorite, my 70-200.
On the way up to Osoyoos this year we stopped in Blaine to pick up a some bathing suits and an old manual focus Tilt+Shift lens and decided to continue our drive through The North Cascades. It was so beautiful and was nice to get a bit of a change of scenery instead of our usual drive. These were all taken with an 80mm manual focus Tilt+shift while I learned how to use it. Halfway through our drive we found out that the highway had been closed because of the fires – luckily we were able to detour and get around it!
