Playful Family Session with Mamma and Son at Burnaby Mountain Park

It was an overcast morning when I met this mother and son for our family photo session on Burnaby Mountain. The timing was excellent, as the best time of day for a family photos is in the morning or evening when the light is soft and flattering. They looked great! Their outfits were nicely coordinated without being too overly matched.
This 4-year old boy was itching to get out on his bike and burn off some energy. I was able to get some shots of him as he happily tore around on his bike. After his ride, I had some games planned for our session but this little guy wasn’t having it! I quickly realized that this session was going to be on his terms, which is often the case with the little ones. He had his own games in mind so we just rolled with it. This worked out great as the moments that happened before me were authentic and real… just the way I like it!
All I did was guide them into a nice location with good light and background. We found a lovely field with long grass and a beautiful forested background. It was perfect! These two were so adorable together as they rolled around in the long grass, picked berries and played with ladybugs. There were lots of fun moments, but also some sweet quiet ones as well.
