Motherhood Session at Blackie Spit | Fraser Valley Family Photographer

This past mother’s day I ran a promotion for Motherhood Mini Sessions (actually a 1 hour session, I have no idea why I called them minis, ha!). Shelly, who booked one of the sessions is a fellow photographer at Photos by Shelly Rae! I love when other photographers book me. I think it’s so important to have photos of ourselves with our kids, and it's hard to do when you're always behind the camera.

When I arrived at Shelly’s session we realized we had met 3+ years ago at a Cloverdale kids swap meet. We had chatted photography, and she ended up starting her own photography business. Such a small world! I love how paths meet and how connections are made.

Shelly brought her mom to her session as well has her two boys. We scheduled it right at sunset at Blackie Spit Park and it was an absolutely gorgeous evening! We also had a bit of time to throw in a few posed photos in there. It was an amazing night.
