Parksville Family Wedding Photography Rathrevor Beach

Family Photography

Family photography is an amazing way to capture a moment of your life. A family photoshoot with me is a mixture of playfulness, thought-provoking questions to get those true emotions showing, and exploring one of our beautiful Vancouver Island parks. As we explore the beach, lake or mountaintop, I’ll pose you so that you look amazing and then prompt you resulting in genuine character and natural movement. It will NEVER feel like a stiff, awkward smiling picture- I promise! With families, I capture every familial grouping including big group shots, just the parents, just the kids, kids with grandparents etc. You’ll receive a series of images that show the intimacy between family members, and reveals your unique collective character. Feel free to bring your dogs, bubbles for the kids, or some adult bubbly for any special occasion!


My images incorporate the natural landscape and environment of whatever setting we choose. If there is a particular park that has a lot of meaning and memories for your family, I would recommend we photograph there. If you’re up for something new, I have a ton of ideas and places I’ve tucked away in my mind in most regions of Vancouver Island. If you read the About Me page, you know that exploring the Island is my number one activity! Beaches, rivers, lakes, mountains, old growth Maples, grassy fields- you name it, let’s find it! I am also very happy to photograph at your family home- a truly meaningful setting.

“We loved working with Deanna and we’re so happy with our photos. We’re a mother and daughter who are often shy in front of the camera and struggle to look natural. Deanna got us out of our shells with her spontaneous prompts, and the results were authentic, and really captured the essence of personalities. Would highly recommend!” -Ali & Irene
