Shooting With Friends

I have just returned from speaking at the NAPCP retreat in Whistler, BC. It was an awesome opportunity to share and learn and spend some time with old friends while making some new ones. I lead several activities while I was there. One of them was a family session in the snow. For this I recruited my friend, Robin Bonner and her family. Her children are just gorgeous(and Whistler is a pretty sweet backdrop). For me, a highlight of the trip was having the opportunity to invite Christine Pobke to come along with me for this. It is always super fun to photograph with other photographers you admire. Especially because you have someone else to talk with afterwards about the experience. How lucky am I that Christine is my friend? And, I don't just say that because she brought me Tim Tam's and Vegemite(it is good if you mix it with cream cheese).

Because I knew the sun would set as we started the part of the session where people would watch(yikes...not scary at all)...I arranged for sparklers and flashlights so that we could have some fun playing around. These are some of the images I created.

Much love to both Pobke and Robin ;) What a pleasure it was to play together.
