Awesome Alberta Shoot | Family Photography

I had hoped to do this family shoot on the way to Ontario this summer. We’d planned to drive the motor-home across the mountains to Alberta, pick up half of this great family (yes, they are my family, lucky me; Cora’s Eric’s sister), and head on over through the States to Norwich to visit more family over there, but sadly that never happened. :( The particularly sad part of all of that is that we had to delay the shoot. To November. What on earth were we thinking?! The winds were howling (see first pic of the shoot below :)), and the temperatures were far below where any sane person would hang about outside for 1.5 hours sans winter coats!! :{ However, despite all that, I’m rather excited about these pictures. I don’t get to shoot in AB often, and while I am partial to my home province I confess, I must also admit that I LOVED shooting that WIDE open sky. It’s simply stunning…as is this cute Maljaars family (and Colin’s girlfriend too). Check them out! :)

Ah, I loved shooting by that wood pile. I was loath to leave it and go shoot elsewhere, since it looked so cool on the pics, but also because it was the only wind-free spot of the whole session!!! :P)

Look at these ADORABLE boys. They love each other dearly…and despite the fact that Liam has great friends here at home/school too…he still really misses his BFF Kerwin a LOT. :{ Liam, Connor and Kerwin had such a great time together!

And then. These marvelous irrigation pipes just happened to be laying there in perfect formation, much to my delight!

See that walking picture two up from here? One of my fave walking pics ever.

Then we headed out to the open fields, to capture some more of those great clouds and the beautiful wide open spaces…

Ah!! That was super fun…despite the frost-bite! (Haha, just kidding, although I will own up to the fact that I am a wimpy Chilliwackian. :))  Thanks John and Cora for having us for the weekend. :) Love ya all. xoxo

PS more pics of Alberta coming up soon-ish. When I finally get done all my shoots (both shooting and editing) and get done my card and calendar page designs. So, some time spring maybe?! :P

Wacky Woodle Clash Day

This post is a wee bit hard on the eyes, I admit. So GARISH! So BRIGHT! Beware.

It’s clash day today at school. My kids are both hoping desperately to win. I think they have a pretty good chance, no?! :)  (Update, they both won second in their classes! I can only imagine what first place looked like?!)

(This last pic I did something I never do, which is put a paint filter on it. Hey the kids get to be crazy in the wardrobe department, I thought I’d go nuts in Photoshop. ;) Fear not. It’s a one-time thing. Haha.)

Happy wet, wacky weekend! xox

Patricia Neels - November 21, 2014 - 1:56 pm

Ya…I would say they have a good chance at winning :)

Last time of the year… | Chilliwack Family Photographer

Harrison. Last time shooting and hanging out…it’s unlikely that I’ll be back before next spring…but what a fabulous time it was! Look at this family of mine, aren’t they a rather good-looking bunch?! :)

Here’s a few of  my faves from this colourful session.

Elly, Joe & Casen | Chilliwack Family Photographer

This past gloriously sunny Saturday demanded a session (or 4, as I ended up shooting), and I was only too delighted to shoot Joe, Elly and their 1.5 kids at Kilby. I’d brought Jade along to entertain and make her little cute cousin laugh for the pictures, but she was AWOL for the majority of the session, exploring the wonderful place…so I was left to act like a complete clown on my own as I shot. :)

Check out this great day and family and leave ‘em some lovin’!
