Stanley Park is one of my favourite places to photograph and when I heard baby Lukas and his family love outdoors and the West Coast, it seemed like the perfect location. They were celebrating Lukas’ fourth month in this beautiful world and what a better way than a fun photo session out in the wilderness! We had the date set and everything was planned up until the actual day when it started raining cats and dogs! Canceling was not an option just because we were all super excited about the day and we could not think about having to wait longer for the photos to be done. So with the help of a couple of umbrellas and the super helpful mom and dad we made it happen, and let me tell you, it was very rewarding.
I got to capture some beautiful moments on this day. Mom and dad were very patient and they were up to any challenge. They were very good at listening to all my requests for where to be and how to pose. All of us were cold and had red noses, but the warmth of the love in this family was what kept the session going and allowed me to create these lovely images. The session was all smiles (except a few moments where Lukas didn’t seem too impressed with the cold situation). We laughed, sighed, got drenched and Lukas cried in the end, but the result was all worth it. I am very glad we got to do it. Rain or shine, the photo sessions must go on in this city of ours.
Here is a selection of our favourite photos from the day
