Olympic Village Family Session

Last Saturday I headed to Olympic Village to shoot this family session- It's hard to believe that we truly lucked out and got weather like this because if you live in Vancouver then you know leading up to Saturday and since then, it's been quite wet and soggy. My friend from work, Carley, came to me and asked if I would be available to do a family session that included "babies, dogs and adults" and me being a big believer in embracing your families chaos and documenting it- I of course obliged. The obvious star of this photo shoot is George (the British Bulldog) and I'm sure you'll agree! He's clearly smiling in some shots and then outright refuses to be any part of the last photos. Cheeky!!

Last week, my friend and I decided to take some photos of each other for our websites and social media. Michele of Michele Mateus photography (http://michelemateusphotography.com/) and I first met earlier this year whilst working together on an engagement shoot. We clicked right away, laughing, joking and bouncing ideas off each other.  She's a great support to have and does nothing but encourage the people around her, i'm so lucky to now call her my friend! 

So last Monday, the day after my thanksgiving dinner, feeling a little bloated after lots of over indulging I spent the first half hour in front of the camera. This is really hard for me because I hate being photographed but Michele eased me into it and I just didn't take myself too seriously. The result..I LOVE THESE PICTURES. Michele did an amazing job, definitely check out her work. 

Then I photographed Michele, she was a little more prepared than me and had a few outfit changes and accessories!! I just live in hats so I just wore mine the entire shoot. Michele never takes herself too seriously and has a great sense of humour and I hope that shows in my pictures of her..
