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.

Tsawwassen Family Photo Session | Community Photography South Delta | Family Photographer

Last year, the Berglund family moved to BC. You would have never known this as you could tell they had a deep love for the beach, nature and the mountains. The perfect mix of a west coast family.

When I met the Berglund family at Centennial Beach, they were all very easy to talk to, good energy and very lovely to spend time with. We took some beautiful photos on a lovely evening. Everywhere we went that evening, the sun seemed to be following, making for beautiful backlighting. You could tell nine year old Kiera loved spending this quality time with her parents at the beach.

My favourite part of a family photo session, is when I give kids time to be themselves and show me a little of who they are. Kiera, totally just shone during this moment. As the sunset in Boundary Bay, she was doing cartwheels under a pastel sky with the mountains and city scape in the background.

To the Berlund family, thanks for spending the evening with me at Centennial Beach. Evenings like this, really make me love my job! Your family is a pleasure to spend time with, I hope you guys are loving BC and everything it has to offer :)

Diefenbaker Park Family Photos | Tsawwassen Family Photographer | Community Photography South Delta

From the moment I met the Malinek family in 2017 for a family photo session, I knew they were a special family. They are all kind and sweet and you can tell they all enjoy each other immensely. Fast forward a year and I was lucky enough to take their photos again.

When I arrived at Diefenbaker for their photo shoot, the first thing I noticed was Mom Ashili’s stunning red dress. I knew, at some point in the photoshoot, she would need to be twirling.

On every family photoshoot, I bring a white blanket for the families to cuddle on. I came to own the blanket after I noticed it at my moms house. The blanket is a unique white quilt and a perfect rectangle for families to sit on. The patch work is well made, it has served me well for the past couple years. My mom, who is an avid thrift store shopper, came across it a few years back at the Delta Hospice in Tsawwassen.

I pulled the white blanket out for the Malinek family to sit on during their family photoshoot. Ashli took one look at the blanket and noticed SHE was the one who made it! Ten years ago, she hand made that exact blanket, her initials were even hand sewn in the corner. Such a small world! She had given it to thrift years back. And here she was, with her family sitting on it.

To the Malinek family, thank you for spending the evening with me at Diefenbaker. You guys are always a pleasure to take photos for. I love seeing from year to year the way your boys grow into lovely little men. Ashli, thank you for making and passing along your beautiful blanket!

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.

LADNER HARBOUR PARK FAMILY PHOTOS | COMMUNITY PHOTOGRAPHY | SOUTH DELTA

Ladner Harbour Park in South Delta has always been my go to fall photos. When the inquiring family asked for suggestions for a 'woods' look in South Delta, Ladner Harbour Park immediately popped to mind. The light coming through the trees was oh so dreamy it is now one of my favourite summer locations to take photos in Delta!

The family gifted their Grandma a photo session of her 5 granddaughters for Christmas. 5 girls ages 7-16, a photographers dream! The cousin connection these girls had made for a breezy, easy and loving session. Melt. My. Heart.

CENTENNIAL BEACH FAMILY PHOTOS | TSAWWASSEN PHOTOGRAPHER

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! 

KOCH FAMILY PHOTO SESSION | BOUNDARY BAY | SOUTH DELTA PHOTOGRAPHER

I met this family in the dyke parking lot between Beach Grove and Boundary Bay in sunny Tsawwassen. This parking lot is full of bikers, joggers and birdwatchers. I immediately identified the family as they all looked way to good to be going for a casual dyke stroll :)

We took a walk down the Boundary Bay dyke to fields close by for their family pictures. We enjoyed the next hour playing, laughing and having the kids cuddle up on Mom and Dad. The family dynamic was sweet and relaxed. We had local bunnies hopping around to keep the kids entertained!

To the Koch family, thank you for allowing me to take your family photos! I had such a great time and I hope we can do it again soon!
