Family Photos in Qualicum Beach
Dave’s family spent a few nights together in Qualicum Beach over the summer, and he decided it was a great opportunity to have family photos taken since it’s not too often that they are all in the same place anymore. The day we got together was a sunny August 4th, 23 degrees and NO wind! Being on the hot sand and wading in the cool waters of the ocean, it was a great time. In the beginning, the little boy absolutely did not want his photo taken. I brought out his smiles after asking him what superpower he would choose, and engaging with them all in an extra-playful manner. We threw rocks in the water, we made animal noises, pretended we were a human accordion and splashed around in the water. Everybody told me they didn’t expect many successful family photos due to the boy’s noncooperation, but I was pleased to deliver a more playful, candid set of family photos that they ended up loving!
