A husband and wife photoshoot in the Fraser Valley
In Vancouver, we seem to only have two kinds of weather, rainy and wet, or sunny and beautiful af. I first met Cody in the online world, and after a few emails back and forth I found myself with Cody and her husband James in the parking lot of a very very isolated beach (which is normally swamped with humans on a sunny day), on a very windy afternoon. Cody is a Fraser Valley blogger called Joyful Wife and Creative Worker (http://creativewifeandjoyfulworker.com/), and a mama of 3 littles. I really wanted to shoot Cody and James on their own, one because I seldom shoot family sessions anymore, and two, I love helping couples focus in on their own relationship between just the two of them.
Nailing their Shoot
We wandered around the sandy beaches at Crescent Beach, barefoot, with windswept hair. Okay, maybe I’m glamming that up a bit, but Cody completely rocked this shoot especially given the weather conditions, while I felt like a hot mess behind the camera bouncing around to keep warm, rocking the highest top knot.
Cody told me that her and James hadn’t had a photoshoot of just the two of them for AGES, and I felt so honoured and lucky to be able to document this mamabear and dad’s love for one another. We spent the windy afternoon getting to know each other/making connections on who we knew in the Fraser Valley female business owner/boss babe industry, and documenting. Cody and James were so sweet chasing each other around the beach, tickling and laughing non-stop, but also having an afternoon to themselves and connecting together.
