I recently took a trip out to BC with my family. We drove out there from here in Calgary and it quite adventurous. When we did finally get to Vancouver, we stayed with our friends, Rosie & Mike, who absolutely pampered us in their home. I really hope I can return the favor one day.
Mike is a very good friend of mine and, really, my only close friend living in Vancouver. He actually lives in Surrey to be exact. We have been friends since grade 9, when I lived in Surrey and managed to stay in contact all those years sans internet. We used to write each other letters to keep in touch. Remember those? Mike married Rosie soon after I had gotten married and I had only met Rosie once since then when I visited Vancouver for the Olympics, back in February. I really wanted to do a Just Us session with them then, but with the time crunch it was impossible. When I made plans to come out to the lower mainland this summer, I told Mike that we should do a shoot. Rosie was ecstatic to hear this!
Our Just Us session wasn’t really just us, because I brought Michelle to help assist me a bit. Jonas also came along as well. We ended up shooting at a construction site for a while before we moved on to Crescent Beach in South Surrey. In my time living in Surrey and visiting it countless times, I somehow, have never been to Crescent Beach. We got there in time as the sun was about to set giving us really beautiful light.
Here are a few photos from our session that I want to share.
