i love capturing families that have gathered together in the columbia valley to celebrate a birthday… everyone is relaxed and enjoying their time together as they honour someone important in their lives. for the beckstead family it was doug’s 60th and he was spending a few days celebrating and enjoying the area with his wife andrienne and their three kids with their respective partners.
this was a stylish group. when they arrived i knew their photo session was going to look great based on a few things… the outfits were perfect, doug was wearing a fedora that looked awesome and everyone was chatting and laughing constantly. i instantly got the impression that this family is fun, genuine and great to hang out with. i was right.
when claire called to arrange the portrait shoot, she mentioned that they would really like to take advantage of the amazing mountain views that we have in the area. it was a gorgeous spring morning that we chose and both the rockies and the purcell mountains were looking beautiful in the background.
happy birthday doug and thanks again to everyone! i know you had a great time celebrating this special day and i was honoured to capture some memories that you can enjoy for years to come.
