As a Vernon family photographer, I had a hard time trying to decide where I should post this blog. Normally all things Wedding, reside on my Wedded Bliss Photography site but my family sessions reside here on Baby Bliss Photography.
This amazing session, had elements of both.
You see this family portrait session was all made possible by the fact that Peter and Terry are celebrating 50 years of marriage! That is SO amazing to me and even more amazing that we did the session on their Wedding Anniversary.
Raising their three children; Margaret, Lynn & Dave here in Vernon, the family has long ties to this area. Peter’s father was Dr. Alexander and the Alexander wing at Vernon Jubilee Hospital is named after him.
The children, all raising families of their own now came from Edmonton, Vancouver and Colorado to celebrate this momentous occasion.
It was so wonderful to see all the cousins interacting with each other and the siblings were some of the best older sibling groups I’ve worked with. A lot of times, older children don’t like having photos taken with their brothers or sisters. They think it’s uncool to show that they like each other; but not this family. Everyone was so cooperative and dove right in to anything I asked.
It was a super hot day for the May long weekend, but thankfully we had their great family dock on Okanagan Lake to use a backdrop. We weren’t sure if it would be stable enough as the water levels on Okanagan Lake have been incredibly high this year. It’s been creating havoc to docks and flooding homes and sadly I got a photo from Lynn a few days ago and the dock is now under water. So thankful we were able to use it when we did as I know it is a great source of joy for the families when they visit each year.
Peter and Terry, congratulations on a wonderful 50 years of marriage and all the beautiful memories you have created along the way!
