Reid Family Photos | Centennial Beach, Tsawwassen | Community Photography South Delta

Mom Megan and I had been chatting about her family photo session for some time over e-mail. I had taken her friends family photos and that’s how she came across my name. I didnt know going into her session that I actually knew her from way back in the day. When I saw her familiar face at Centennial Beach, I was brought back to my first job as a phone girl in Tsawwassen at Mario’s Kitchen, circa 2003. Megan was a server and I remember her just being the absolute sweetest person, to everyone, including us phone girls lol.

The first two thing I noticed about her family was 1.) how beautiful and sweet they all were! and 2.) their perfect choice of cloths for a beach family photo session. Blue and white tones on a crystal clear evening was going to make for such dreamy photos.

The evening of their session was a warm summer night at Centennial Beach. We spent the hour of their family session hanging out, capturing the classic family portraits and the most beautiful in-between moments, which are always my favorite. I also LOVED capturing some special mom and dad portraits, it was the day after their anniversary after all :)

To the Reid family, thanks so much for allowing me to take your family portraits at Centennial Beach. It was such a nice night and loved the dynamic of your loving family.

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

I met up with Indy, Matt and there adorable son Adrian at Centennial Beach in sunny Tsawwassen for their family photos. I’m not sure if it was the time of day, the setting, Indy’s dress or ALL of the above, but the color tone of these photos are so magical. Well, almost as magical as Adrian’s smile throughout the shoot :)

Adrian honestly made me feel like the funniest person on the planet. He would laugh and smile at all my ‘jokes’, which included playing peek-a-boo, tickling him with a soft plant, making funny faces. As long as he was cuddling with his mom and dad he was a happy camper.

Indy and Matt, thanks for allowing me to capture your family photos. You guys have such a happy, fun little boy and you all were such a pleasure to photograph!

The sky! Her dress. And the way he looked at her!

I’m just swooning over K + T Centennial Beach engagement session in Tsawwassen. I love to leave plenty of time for engagement photos. This is the time I get to talk to the couple and get to know them. I’m photographing their wedding after all!

I met the couple in the parking lot at Centennial Beach. The first thing I notices was how AMAZING they both looked! I like to think of the beginning of our shoot as the ‘warm up’. I generally get the couple to do things that may FEEL super awkward, but look GREAT on camera! They we’re both such great sports and we captured the most beautiful moments. Once the sun starts to set and we enter the ‘golden hour’, that’s when we will head down to the beach for sunset photos.

I loved when Kathleen said, ‘so we’ve done lots of belly smooshing photos, can we just take some fun ones?’ LOL! Yes! I’m all about collaboration so they pulled out their sunnies for some casual fun photos.

As the sun set over boundary bay, the most beautiful pastel sky finished off their engagment photos. The wind picked up lightly and holy smokes, they looked stunning being photographed at the edge of the Pacific Ocean.

Kathleen and Tyler, thank you for letting me capture your photo session. As a Tsawwassen family photographer, to be able to capture two adults so in love, makes such a welcome photo shoot.

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 :)


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!
