After our Langara Professional Photography graduation gallery, my family and I traveled to Tofino British Columbia for beaches, surfing, and tacos.
Families are my favourite thing to take photos of, especially my own. It is fun to photograph people you know so well because you can be pretty certain about how they are going to react. With family, everyone knows that just one certain look can invoke anger or laughter.
I tell people all the time that photography helps you feel connected to each other. It sort of helps you rekindle your love and remember all of your favourite things about each other. Spending time in Tofino beachcombing, surfing, and exploring with my family was the best way to reconnect. Watching them all through the lens — and even being on the other side of it a few times — was a special experience. After losing Dad two years ago, we know too well how quickly life changes and we all deeply appreciated getting to spend time together.
