Badlands National Park Adventure

We know it’s important to hire a professional photographer to document our wedding day, our newborn, and our child’s senior year, but what about the most valuable time in your life…the only time that is a guarantee…the present?

“Now” is the moment we should live for; the moment we should embrace. We can work for a better tomorrow, but that often times leaves us just “working”. I must confess, I am a workaholic. I love my job therefore I could do it every day and still enjoy life (other than the bloodshot eyes…those I could do without), so it is important I create memorable adventures for me and my daughters to enjoy together. Lucky for me I get to combine my love of photography and travel, giving us the opportunity to reflect on these special moments for many years to come. Photographs have the power to remind you of the fleeting times that pass by and the ability to recreate the feelings hidden deep within. Sometimes they even generate deeper feelings and emotions then you allow yourself to feel in the given moment.

My free-spirited 5 year old, Layna, is an adventurer at heart and has a personality big as the world she lives in. My goal was to create a photoshoot that represented her to the fullest, while also creating some real authentic memories along the way. Our “almost annual” family trip we’ve taken since I was little, is a road-trip to the Black Hills so I chose the nostalgic Badlands National Park for a backdrop and continued West to the Black Hills of South Dakota where we shared some more adventures (some documented, some just enjoyed in the moment:)

  • I like that you emphasized the importance of photographing keepsakes for “now” rather than always just at big life moments like weddings etc. Totally true! Thank you for sharing your Badlands photos, it is a totally different world than Vancouver Island here in BC. Keep up the great work and keeping it real by appreciating the moments that make up the daily. ReplyCancel

  • Oh, what a great adventure! The Badlands National Park is a dream place! Your pictures are amazing and I like the subtle pastel tones. And of course what to say about your little one? She looks amazing and your pictures do justice to how cute she is. I really believe that the true beauty of life lies in the moments that we spend with the people that we love and it is a treasure to be able to freeze these moments in time through your pictures. ReplyCancel
