This rad family was so much fun to photograph last summer! They were so funny and so in love. We chose to do their family portraits in Stanley Park, because of it’s beautiful city views and west coast feel. We spent the time wandering around, taking portraits, and laughing! Seriously, teenage boys are hysterical!

The best time of day to take portraits outside in the summer time is around sunset. You get these beautiful golden, creamy portraits and there are far fewer shadows then if the portraits were done earlier in the day. The softer light is also good for avoiding squinting!
