We have so many milestones in life that tend to go uncelebrated by photographs – that’s what this Vancouver adventure session is all about. We tend to take out our cameras for birthdays, weddings, occasions where we get dressed up to look our best – and that is wonderful of course! But I think it’s equally important to celebrate and remember life as it was, to be able to look back on images that truly reflect other important times or decisions in our lives.
I have known Nicole and Tim for a long time, they are two of our dearest friends and we first left New Zealand for London with them nearly five years ago now. They’ve now taken the leap to move to Vancouver and I wanted to shoot a session that we can someday look back on as a reflection of a great time of life. The kind of pictures you someday show your kids to perhaps inspire them to travel and live and experience different places. Vancouver is incredible – and pretty much made for these two with their love of adventure, hiking and the outdoors. If you’re a photographer reading this – go and photograph the people you love, the couples you love, the friends you hold dear! Don’t save it all just for the people who book you, make memories for those around you too.
