OK, a summer 100% full of smoke sucks – we need some clear summer lake days, and obviously it’s not great for our health, and wildfires are dangerous. But you have to admit, Knox mountain looks pretty dreamy in the smoke. And the lighting is SO GOOD, like a dream to photograph in. So even though the smoke sucks, a part of me inside has a little happy dance if I do get a photograph of family in the smoke. We still have fun, we giggle, we skip, we blow bubbles, there are piggyback rides, and exploring and examining what Knox mountain has to offer is so fun!
And even though we couldn’t see the view of the lake, I love Family photography because you never really know what you’re gonna get and it’s such a treat to document this stage in our families life no matter what the view is – because really when you look back on these photos, the things that will stand out to you are how much the kids have grown, and how cute they were, and what funny little faces they made, or what things made them laugh (or cry). Memories > mountains.
If you’re in Kelowna this summer, and want to document these moments in your family’s life I’d love to hang out with you and photograph you all (: Reach out through the inquiry form on my contact page or send me an email and let’s get this ball rolling!
Family sessions with kiddos under 8 are about 60% chaos and that’s what I love about them (: bring your chaos, show up as is, and we’ll document it. Because in the end, it’s not the “picture perfect” moments you’ll remember… it’s the real stuff that will fill your memories 💛
