Bowen Park Family Portraits | Nanaimo, BC

Having family portraits done with older children can be challenging. Almost as challenging as getting a busy toddler to stop moving long enough to look at the camera lol But, the same tricks apply to both age groups. Lots and lots of patience and the occasional bribe. For this session the bribe involved a loaf of bread to feed the ducks lol It worked! Sometimes the best thing to do is just simply to give the kids something to do and let them have some fun and forget that there’s a camera there. The kids become more comfortable and let their personality shine through when they aren’t worried about smiling or posing. So, the kids fed the ducks, mom & I chatted, and I caught the cute moments as they happened. We even got some silly faces and some very sweet natural moments between the kids! Never discount the value of completely candid moments 🙂 You will look back on those later in life and remember that moment like it was yesterday.

Here are some highlights from this sweet semi posed/semi candid portrait session at Bowen Park 🙂 Enjoy!
