Centennial Beach Family Photos | Maternity Pictures | Community Photography South Delta

Mom and Dad Alison and Nathan have had lots of adventures together. They met in Milan Italy and he proposed on a beach in Sir Lanka. They lived in Singapore before coming back to BC to start a family (what a life!). And now they are onto their next adventure of welcoming baby #2 into their lives this coming May.

I had met the family before at a Centennial Beach wedding I photographed last summer. The wedding couple were the sweetest, down to earth couple, so you could only imagine they had the sweetest guests! That’s how I connected with Mom Alison.

We met at Centennial Beach for their family photos/maternity photo shoot. It was a beautiful, clear evening, but right before the shoot started a super cold ocean breeze picked up! We headed down to the beach and sweet little Isla lasted a total of 5 minutes before she was cuddled up in her parents arms. It made for the sweetest connection in the photos. She had her head barried in her parents arms, and every so often would pop her beautiful little face up for a picture. We didn’t last on the beach until sunset because it was so cold. We moved to the back field for some shelter (which we didn’t really get) however it made for a beautiful spot to take photos for sunset :)

To the Camrie family: I had a blast taking photos with you! Regardless of the wind and cold, Alison, Nathan and Isla, your smiles outshone everything! I’m so looking forward to meeting baby sister this May. She is one lucky gal to be welcomed into a sweet loving home :)


Musoke Family Centennial Beach Photos | Tsawwassen, BC | Community Photography South Delta

A few years back, Jess (the beautiful momma in these photos) reached out to me and asked if I would be interested to take her family photos. She had seen some photos I had posted on my Instagram account. . I, of course, said yes to take her family photos, for free, as I had never done a family shoot before. We met up at Ladner Harbour Park and spent an hour taking photos, chasing around her 1.5 year old as she cuddled her newborn baby. When I got in my car after the shoot, I felt exhilarated and something sparked in me that taking photos of families was something I wanted to do more of.

Three years later, I met up with the Musoke family at Centennial Beach for this family photo session. This would be my fourth time photographing their beautiful family. Since my first shoot with them, I’ve upgraded my camera, taken what it seems like a million courses and tutorials, practiced and worked hard to make my work consistent. Even though I’ve photographed many families and newborns in the past 3 years, I still feel the same exhilaration that I did the first time I photographed this family.

To the Musoke family, I know I have said it before, and I will say it again, THANK YOU! Jess, thanks for seeing something in my photos that I did not see. I love spending time with your family and watching your kids grow year to year and being able to document this for you. I remember you telling me once that you and Ronnie decided you never wanted to live a boring life, and from looking at these photos I think you all make the most of every moment.

A Very Special Centennial Beach Family Session | Community Photography South Delta | Family Photos

“Tomorrow, they’ll be a little older than they were today. Today is a gift.”

I was first introduced to Sharon through my sister Briar. Briar and Sharon work together in the wedding industry. Sharon, however, for the past year has been on a leave from her job so she could be by her oldest sons side as he battled an aggressive form of brain cancer. 


Cameron, Sharon's seven year old son, in the past year has undergone numerous surgeries, along with chemo and radiation. When Sharon was with Cameron in the hospital, they made a list of things they wanted to do once they were out. For Sharon, family photos were at the top of her list.


I arrived to Centennial Beach in Tsawwassen 20 minutes before the session began and it was raining. It had actually been raining the past 2 weeks. The session was date sensitive as a key family member was only in town for a couple days. There was no rescheduling for weather. I pulled my umbrellas from my car, however, minutes before we began shooting the rain stopped.


The dynamic between the family was loving, kind and fun. Mom Sharon has an infectious smile and they all laughed super easily. Both boys, took to the water. Mid winter in Vancouver and they were jumping over the waves in their boots. The light broke through the clouds as we were finishing our session. It was a perfect afternoon.

To the Bulger family, your courage and love can be seen from miles away. Allowing me to capture your family photos has been a privilege. Thank you for allowing me to capture this special moment for you :)

WILSON CENTENNIAL BEACH FAMILY PHOTOS | TSAWWASSEN PHOTOGRAPHER | COMMUNITY PHOTOGRAPHY SOUTH DELTA

Summer has seems like a distant memory here in Tsawwassen now that the rain has moved in. It was only a couple weeks ago I was watching the sunset at Centennial Beach with the Wilson family taking their photos. As a South Delta photographer I love the summer for family portraits but I am excited to be moving into the fall for some fall foliage.

It was a blast taking photos with the Wilson family in Boundary Bay. It was a perfect summer evening and the sunset was cotton candy skies. It was an easy breezy photo session. So much family love. The poses came as natural as all the laughs we had.

Another beautiful night in sunny Tsawwassen for a family portrait session! I feel like I say it all the time, but I LOVE living here! Centennial Beach never disappoints for dreamy sunsets and crystal water - perfect for family photos. It is also a photographer bonus when the family shows up and the family is super adorable!
