Imagine my surprise, while shopping at the mall.. I hear ( in a loud voice) ” and this lady is from FORT SMITH NWT….. ” That got my attention quickly haha! It was JonLiv from my hometown, where we went to high school together! Funny thing is we both moved to Kelowna a year and a half ago. It was great to see him, we went for coffee and did some catching up. I was super excited that he asked me to do some family photos for them!
We waited for the rain to stop and a break in the gloomy clouds. Then on a Sunday morning I woke to a text saying ” the light is beautiful right now!!” To which I replied ” Okay lets do it, I can be there in 20 mins!” We met at a local beach that the family visits often. It was nice to finally meet everyone, my first impression was that they are all soooooo happy! The kids were so friendly & welcoming to me. The first thing they noticed was my fancy shoes. Turns out the shoes I normally wear were not yet dry from the previous day and I was in a hurry, so I grabbed the only other shoes at the door `crocs ‘ ha! They have got to be the worst shoes to wear to a beach, ever. BUT the kids approved so it was all good!
We had fun in our short time together, the littlest one Micah was so funny, he cracked me up constantly. Nyah was such a sweetheart, I just love her beautiful smile. She is the type of girl who is always smiling even when she is not. Josh the oldest was the “photo bombing king” haha.. he managed to sneak into almost every shot 🙂 Such a wonderful family they are.
I look forward to doing more photos with them in the Spring!
