This family portrait session for Candice and Mark’s family was captured on film at Alouette Lake, BC by Melissa Carlton. This lake boasts a stunning backdrop with the crystal clear lake and breathtaking mountains. Candice is a local Vancouver mom blogger at ‘This Mama Loves Life’ with two adorable little ones (Hudson & Grace). They were both dressed in beautiful pieces from a local British Columbia children’s clothing store ‘Nest and Nurture’. We checked in with them to see how 2020 affected life for their family …
How has this year been for your family? Any positive or negative impacts?
With everything going on in the world, we’ve tried our best to focus on the positive. We have a healthy family, a full fridge, a roof over our heads, and so much more to be grateful for. 2020 has been really good to us. We’ve gardened, spent time at the beach by the ocean, and made some great summer memories with the kids.
Tell us one memorable family event or activity from this year!
We took a family trip with my parents to Maui in February! It was perfection and great timing considering the borders would close the month after! We made amazing memories and enjoyed every minute!
What is something you all really enjoy doing together?
We love to go for walks, explore the beach, and this past summer we had so much fun at the waterslides!
Any additional things you’d like to share?
Photographs have always been important to me. Capturing special moments during a family session and preserving these memories is something I want us to continue.
