Fishtrap Creek Park Family Photos

Featuring the Klebes

If you’re reading this thinking, I thought she said was in Haiti! I am but thanks to the wonders of technology, I can keep blog posts publishing continually throughout the week until we are home. A couple weekends ago, I had the pleasure of photographing two family sessions in one day! We have had thee most beautiful November weather this year. Usually November is an ugly month, the month most Vancouverites are thinking about booking a last minute vacation to get away from the rain! It’s so beautiful to wake up every morning to crisp air, the rising sun. I love the cold air!

This family and their five beautiful children braved the cold and we created some awesome photos together on a Saturday morning in Abbotsford. Melissa is a portrait photographer in Chilliwack and you can tell her kids are used to the camera! They were all smiles, even down to the littlest boy in the bunch. Loved taking these photos and meeting you all! Enjoy!

 

Look at these cute little duck visitors!

A little activity makes the best family photos… :)

The boys…


And the girls!

I always try to include some individual photos of each child during the family sessions! Love these.

This was such a cute part of the session. Melissa and Kevin had arranged for a family vacation to Disneyland and Legoland that week… the car was loaded up with all their suitcases and things. The older girls knew the plan but the boys had no idea. Melissa turned around one of the boy’s shirts and it said “Are we there yet?” on the front. ;) Then Melissa had me tell the boys where they were going after this session! They all thought they were only going to a hotel overnight just a fun weekend away.

“You’re going to Disneyland!” I said.
“No I’m not.”
“Yes you are!”
Blank stare.
“Ask your mom!”
“Are we?!”
“Yes!”
“WOAH.”
