The Sanabrias love rock. Not just the music kind but Raul dedicates a room with wall to ceiling exhibits of exotic rare earth material from all over the globe….. including a couple of meteorite specimens. Yes, there was this green looking one…. Nevermind! We’re here to photograph their latest family addition and not geek-out (mostly Alwin) at cool looking rocks.
We spent an afternoon with the Sanabrias capturing simple life moments at home with baby Alba. Sometimes we forget ourselves as just how blessed we are to be invited into homes to photograph beautiful warmth family moments.Show me more please!»
Whoa! This is faster than I thought. I vaguely remembered this 1912 carousel was pretty fun when we visited Burnaby Museum for Christmas years ago. A tad fast compared to the regular country fair merry-go-rounds. But a thrill nonetheless. Well we’re here with the Wong family. We arrived at the C.W. Parker Carousel just a few minutes before closing. The conductor was kind enough to let us hop on. He even invited me to get on for some carousel action photography. What that’s such a nice man. Did I detect an evil smile? Too late, it’s moving.
Unlike last time where I could go “Whee!!!” with my 5 year old, this time I was trying to stabilize myself with camera gear as Mr. Conductor turned up the juice. Whirl! Whirl! Whirl! Time to bring out the Kung-Fu Panda stance!
“Faster! Faster!” the two Wong boys gleefully screamed!
Soon everything became big blur… Buffeted by the gold wrapped posts and colourful wooden horses, I felt like a spinning pinata.
A little two years’ ago we had the opportunity to photograph this trio at Granville Island. Despite travelling half-way round the globe to Vancouver, we made the Chans feed ducks back then. Well they are back looking for more! The last time we saw Charlyne, she was just learning how to walk. Now she is just a mighty mite zipping about! We have no idea where this little 4 year old stores all her energy!
So this time instead of feeding feathered friends, we hit the Japanese garden inspired Tipperary Park for some awesome cherry blossom photography.Show me more please!»
Ahh Kelowna, BC. The cool little city that’s split in two by Lake Okanagan. Home to some of British Columbia’s most excellent vineyards and fruit farms. So when we had the chance to go shoot some family photos there, we jumped on it. We followed the Kuei family around the area for some family portraits and celebrated Adrian’s fortieth. How many fingers do you take to count that?!Show me more please!»
