Crystal and her three brothers decided to have some family photos taken to surprise their mom on Mothers Day. The day we scheduled for ended up being a fairly rainy day, but growing up on the Island as West Coast Kids, they actually loved the fact that it was wet. We embraced the rain and shot at the local river they grew up with; Englishman River. Among Alder trees, mossy Maples, enormous stumps from the early days of logging, this setting is a genuinely special place for this family, home sweet home.
