Family photographer | Blessings

March 28, 2012

When I first decided I was going to pursue a career in photography, I never imagined all of the benefits that would come from it. There was the obvious – getting to grow as an artist and learning how to be a business owner. I didn’t expect that I would meet some of my best friends as we all learned and grew together.

I am so lucky to be a part of a small group of photographers who initially met because we wanted to challenge and help each other as we developed our businesses and craft. That part of our friendship is still there, but it is now overshadowed by deep friendships that have formed. I adore these girls but we are spread all over the USA and Canada. We make a point of getting together once or twice a year for girls’ weekends – I leave these weekends energized and refreshed. These girls bring out the best in me.

This shoot was done at the end of our trip to Vancouver, Washington.  There were 6 of us shooting at the same time :) This is Amber Anderson (an amazing photographer) and her beautiful family. Amber is an inspiration to me – she has an eye for beauty and is one of the kindest, smartest and gentlest people I know. She loves her family fiercely. I loved having the opportunity to capture them hanging out and being themselves.

Amber – thank you for all that you do for me and our little group. Your strength, dedication to your friends, your humour and your ability to love so wholeheartedly is such a blessing to us all. We love you! <3

Love BOTH of you to pieces! Amber…your family is amazingly beautiful both inside and out and I know that a large part of that is because they have YOU as a wife and mother. Jenn…you captured Amber’s family perfectly! You see the little things…the moments…better than anyone I know! Gorgeous blog post all around!
