I love the lupins! We don't have them in South Africa where I was born or if we did I never saw them, not once... promise!
Last year I did a few family shoots out in the lupins and have been waiting all year for this time again. I just love the look in there, I feel like we are some what tucked away from it all and then I look up and see a highway, but hey, it's fantastic in there! Sunset in the lupins.. expect to see me there most nights for the next few weeks :)
I have been living on and off in Squamish for the past 10 years now, a few years here and there have been in other parts of the world but we always seem to stumble back to Squish. When I first moved here I met Jessi, we were single, no kids and at that perfect time in our lives when everything is still a possibility. So began the great friendship :) As I said, I have moved a lot but still Jessi is here to welcome me back. I left the first time right after we both got married, returned right when little Keegan was born and then left again and we both had our 2nd children while I was in Australia. Through out it all, I have known that I have this amazing friend who is always ready to listen and be there and... I love her children like they are my own!
I feel very honoured to have spent Monday evening with her, her little ones and their nanny (who is soon leaving so obviously we need a picture :) ) We headed to the Lupins, Jess and I have been waiting for these things to pop out of the ground and as soon as we both saw them we were texting like mad! "They are here!!" as if we were waiting for a rock star!
We also decided to have a tea party and blow some bubbles :)
And of course every photo shoot needs one kid ending up in tears at some point, but at least mom is there to give lots of love <3
I hoped liked these pictures as much as I loved taking them.
See you in the lupins :)
