Claude hired me from Winnipeg to take some family portraits in Victoria, when he came to visit his new grandchild. It’s always interesting to finally meet people at their portrait sessions when I hadn’t met them before. This whole family (and their dog) was very friendly and fun. They didn’t want traditional “gathering around a rock” family portraits and had a bunch of great ideas of their own. The sun was a bit harsh that day, but I tried to use it to my advantage. I’m actually a big fan of bright white skies and sun flare. And I love getting that sparkling ocean in my photos.
