Dasha + Jon | Vancouver Family Photographer

Dasha + Jon, a married couple originally from Calgary, have been living in Vancouver for the past 6 months with their gorgeous chow/lab/shephard lady, Abi.  In our pre-session correspondence it was fantastic to hear about how much they've been able to explore. However, with their hectic work schedules it made it difficult to venture out to see more of what the city has to offer.

Dasha mentioned that one of the reasons why she moved out to the west coast was for the ocean and beaches.  After giving her a few suggestions on locations I was so happy when they chose one of my favourite places to photograph - Whytecliff Park. The rocky beaches, wonderful greenery, and endless ocean made the perfect setting to show off their new home to their friends and family back in Calgary plus it was a place neither of them have ever been before.

When we finally met for the first time and I took them down to the beach area of Whytecliff Park it was great to know that the location blew both of them away (I think Dasha's "It's gorgeous!" gave it away).  These two fit perfectly in this setting!  Despite the overcast sky blending a little into the ocean, the lighting was perfect!  These two were SUCH A JOY to spend time with!  

Thank you Dasha, Jon, + Abi on a wonderful afternoon!
