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.

The Fung family has always made it a priority to have annual family photos done. I believe it’s SO important to document this time in our kids lives. Especially as parents, we take tons of photos of our kids, it’s really nice to be in them from time to time! I was so happy this year when they choose me to capture these moments for them!

It was a perfect winter evening at Centennial Beach (before the snow!) with no breeze and light cloud cover to make a pastel sunset. Within minutes of the shoot, the whole family embraced being at the beach and took their shoes off! Yes! This is the reason we live on the West Coast, for evenings like this.

The energy was nice, calm and relaxed. Easy, beautiful smiles all around and you could tell how much 7 year old Jacob loved this time with his parents.

One of my favourite parts of my photo shoot is taking candid photos of the kids. This is the moment I tell them ‘you be you’. I love seeing what they come up with! Jacob, immediately took to jumping off the logs and practicing is kung fu moves. So. Much. Fun!

To the Fung family, thank you again for allowing me to capture your annual family photos. I had such a lovely evening with you guys, I really hope we can do it again next year!
