Backyard Fires and Forts | A Summer Night with the Barnes Family | Greater Vancouver Family Photograper

This summer we went to Alberta to visit my in-laws. We actually hadn't met a few of our new cousins yet! So the trip was much needed. I did family sessions for all of my sister-in-laws' families, and it was amazing. 

The Barnes family is totally rocking the '4 kids in 5 years' club. We had so much fun at their session! These documentary and storytelling sessions are so amazing for families with young kids. No stress trying to get everyone to sit in one spot and smile. Great moments of real life, of love, of family connections. Once we got rained out of the fire and marshmallows, we headed indoors for snuggles, fort building and books. I had a REALLY hard time picking favourites from this one. I hope they hang these all over their walls!
