Tall Swings in Tall Trees

I met this mom in line for grade 10 registration. I was there with a friend...she was there with her older brother(and his girlfriend). Anyone who knows her now would be surprised to learn that she was super duper shy...so her brother asked us to be her friend. She hates that story. But, it's the truth...We became good friends. In fact, my something borrowed at my wedding was the tiara she wore at her wedding. She lives out in Vancouver with her incredibly funny family. We had lost touch over the years...not in a never ever talk, but in a only talk once a year kind of way. Well...when we were out on the west coast, we had the opportunity to spend lots of time with them. I did a family session for them. Then, we ate sushi...

My friend also made the skirt her little girl is wearing. She also made the dress Georgia wore on her first day of school. She also made her outfit for grade 12 grad. Just saying...she's THAT kind of talented. Check out her website.

We swam the previous night in Horseshoe Bay...

Been wanting to share this session for awhile...love the swing, love the dad being so goofy, love the last image on the trampoline, love the image of mom on the stairs looking down on her kiddos playing their instruments...and LOVE the kid artwork on the wall behind the couch. Love them.
