north vancouver family photographer / joyful joyful

Nothing went exactly as planned for this family session.  The evening was supposed to be sunny, but it was overcast.  The park area we had planned to meet at was overtaken by tents for a city fair.  Rachel's husband Dave wasn't feeling well.

But this family braved through it all!   We met at the beautiful waterfront area of North Vancouver, and Dave managed a smile for lots of photos (brave man!), and they ended up showing me their true fun, goofy side in spite of the odds.  

P.S. I love Rachel's smile - I think her daughter definitely inherited it.
