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

One of the biggest compliments when your a family photographer is being asked to photograph a family whose mom, is a photographer herself! That was the case with the Dueck family. Mom Dayna has raised 6 kids (yes 6!) and is now pursuing her calling to become a midwife. And if you’ve met her, you’ll know she is going to make a pretty darn good midwife, that’s for sure!

The Dueck family photo session was at Centennial Beach in Tsawwassen. I love getting know local families, especially when they are as lovely as the Dueck family. The dynamic between them was kind, loving, respectful and fun. You could tell they really enjoyed each other’s company as they laughed and smiled through our photo shoot. Six kids later, you could tell mom Dayna and dad Stan were in love - just look at the way they look at each other in the photos! So much love, so much fun.

It was a perfect evening down at Centennial Beach for their family photos. Clear skies with enough clouds for a pastel sunset.

To the Dueck family, thank you for spending a wonderful evening at the beach with me! Your family is an absolute joy and I’m so happy to have connected with you!

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 :)

WELCOME BABY MARLOWE | AT HOME NEWBORN PHOTOS | TSAWWASSEN | COMMUNITYPHOTOGRAPHY SOUTH DELTA

The cutest baby with the cutest name! MARLOWE! Love love love! I feel like I got lucky to be able to capture newborn photos for another DREAM baby in Tsawwassen. As a South Delta photographer I love connecting with families as they welcome a new family member home.

WELCOME BABY MICHAEL | NEWBORN PHOTOS | SOUTH DELTA PHOTOGRAPHER

As a South Delta photographer I LOVE taking photos of newborns. What I love even more is when an expectant mom books her maternity session with me and a newborn session. When I take maternity photos in Tsawwassen it allows me to connect with the mom so when the newborn shoot rolls around you already have a common ground. It is SO cool to see the transition from pregnancy to motherhood, and in Olena's case a second time Momma.

The nursery of this photoshoot was my DREAM nursery to take photos in. Minimalistic, pure, white with beautiful pops of color. Big bro George did splendid and we tired  him right out, he fell asleep mid shoot :) That is what I love about at home newborn photos, you go with the flow :)

WELCOME BABY CHARLIE | AT HOME NEWBORN SESSION | COMMUNITY PHOTOGRAPHY TSAWWASSEN

I am the luckiest photographer around that I can spend my days with sweet Moms and adorable babies. Photographing babies is so special. My sweet baby girl is already 4 months old and when I photograph a 2 week old baby it really makes me realize how fast they grow.

Oh the joys of being a newborn photographer in Tsawwassen! I love when I arrive at a house with amazing natural light and stunning family (including a newborn baby who slept most of the time and a momma with hair goal I could only dream of!). Only in South Delta can you have a blast taking photos of a family and then skip across the street to pick up something off of Varage sale - double win for the day!

AT HOME NEWBORN PHOTOS | MILLER FAMILY | SOUTH DELTA

My favorite sessions are becoming at home newborn photography sessions. These lifestyle shoots capture you and your family in your own home in the first month after the arrival of baby. I love to photograph South Delta families interacting with each other in an organic, natural way.
