Kootenay Family Photographer

January 2, 2020


As a Kootenay family photographer, I photograph your family candidly—we spend our time doing things that you enjoy doing together. The purpose for me during that activity is to find creative ways to illustrate your relationships and your personalities, as well as your environment and your values. I love family photography because I always leave the session with a feeling of hope. Families are simply doing their best, all the time. It’s vulnerable to have your photo taken. But for those who have photos of their childhood to look back on, those people have an infinitely important gift: a portal to their family history. I think it’s so important to be photographed, to see your life and your emotions through someone else’s eyes. I guarantee you the honest beauty of you interacting with your kids is one of the longest lasting gifts you can give them.

The following photos are my favourites among all the awesome families who shared their days with me.

The following slideshow is from a Day in the Life family photography session on Alex’s graduation day. Each image shows a bit of who he and his family are. Some of the most telling images include: Alex wrestling with his cousin, Alex getting his tie put on with the help of his family (a ritual for men on special occasions), Alex having a group photo made as their female friends tell them where to stand, Alex having a pizza break with his boys in the change room where they met playing hockey, and finally, Alex and his friends in the cavalcade that goes through town in honour of the Nelson BC 2019 Graduation class. I hope you enjoy!

It’s nearly impossible to choose the best Kootenay wedding and family photographer. “The Best” is purely subjective. But I do hope that in describing why these photos are my favourite, they can help you decide whether I’d be the best wedding and family photographer for you. If immortalizing your family history is important to you, or you simply like artful and purposeful photos of people you love, please get in touch with me here. I’m so looking forward to meeting you.
