I was thrilled when my first midwife and now friend asked if I was available to photograph family portraits for her parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. Her parents live in B.C. now, so the whole family does not get to see each other that often.  One of the sisters lives in Burlington and she recommended Lowville Park .  We all gathered there for the photos.  Excellent location choice, Maria!

As you can see, they are still madly in love 50 years after getting married.  May we all experience this kind of long lasting love!

Happy couple on their 50th anniversary

They brought this old photo to the session, because they wanted to recreate it.

Old Family Photo

Same people, similar poses, different location about a decade after the original was taken.


I always get a kick out of little ones photobombing photos.  You should be able to spot two little photo bombers here.

I think it’s important to give kids time to play during photo sessions.
