Fall Family Portrait Session by Craig Roberts

I was hopeful that before the final days of 2015 passed I would actually compose at least one blog posting for the past year  ...
That didn't happen - but maybe this will kickstart my creative thinking (and writing) for 2016!

Back on an early Sunday morning last October I joined our friends Leanna, Phil, their daughters Bryn and Kylie, and two of the sweetest golden retrievers, Ben and Bowie, for a family photography session.   

This location was a bit of an after-thought, as I had another location that I ah scouted the day before, but the tall grasses and magnificent morning light, the tranquil river and the first fallen leaves of the season, combined with a sense of purpose & vision culminated easily in one of the most relaxed and fulfilling sessions.

These folks are so darn photogenic, we couldn't help but produce a varied selection of poses and locations, and deliver some great results! 

Olympic Torch Relay Tour, Day 102 by Craig Roberts

Took the day off so the kids could appreciate the Olympic Torch relay tour as it wound its way through Langley just outside of our home ... its been difficult getting into the 'Olympic spirit' just because of the enormity of it, but today marks just 4 days until its arrival at the opening ceremonies on Friday.

It was evident, at least here locally, that people are not getting into it, and in a big way!  Event the noon-time torch arrival at the Langley Events Center drew a crowd of several thousands, and I have to admit - the community involvement & entertainment and ramping anticipation sure were top-shelf.
