I’ve been photographing Janice & Darrell’s family for a few years now, and every session with them brings me such joy. We took advantage of the beautiful evening sun and met up at the English Gardens at Assiniboine Park on a warm summer evening. They brought their cute dog as always and we just wandered around for some posed & candid photos. I love their kids’ energy and enthusiasm, each have their own unique personality and pizzazz and along with their active dog, we were never short on dynamic shots! Not only that, but add on their parents’ easy-going and playful attitude, and we got to create such a fun and lively collection of family photos! They know how to play!

Yes, I’m posting this almost a year late, but this past year has been so busy and I’ve fallen so behind on blogging. I’m going to be catching up, hopefully, and for now, here’s the Derksen Family, proof that family photo sessions are fun when you let go of expectations, and having tons of fun results in tons of candid, real family portraits! Love these guys!
