hornby island family beach photos with kathryn & her kids

i’ve had the sweet pleasure of photographing kathryn & her kids over the years, when they fly back to the coast, back home, to spend time with family wrapped in the quiet beauty of hornby island. Even in the whirlwind of summer here, the days feel longer, more stretched out, in the lack of scheduling, the ease of lazy mornings & beachy afternoons. The light in the early evening is divine – warm & welcoming – & it has a way of wrapping itself around people like a cozy blanket that just feels right & looks amazing. So last week, kathryn & her littles & i wandered around grassy point, capturing some of their sweet moments, in the evening light, in this beautiful place that holds their hearts so dearly.

emily & kyle have deep roots on hornby island. They have family here & a big part of their hearts live here, surrounded by the natural world they spend so much time exploring, & wrapped in the love of family. So it made perfect sense to hold their wedding celebration on kyle’s brother’s family farm. To have his sister-in-law’s father officiate, his niece & nephew carry flowers & rings, to spend weekends beforehand painting fences & tidying up the corners of karen & jed’s beautiful working farm. Their friends & family gathered around in so much love & support, & the day was a lovely mix of heaps of fun & deep touches of tenderness. Their day was filled with elements of hornby – the spaces & so many of the faces – the music & food, the rustic benches & big tent – all home grown right here on hornby. The day started early & went late & there was love, wonder & a touch of magic all the way along.

emily & kyle, it was nothing short of an absolute delight to follow you along on your walk into marriage. Heartfelt thanks to you both for sharing the journey so openly, so warmly with me. May the heat of the sunshine, the touch of early summer, the love flowing within & around you stay full in your hearts as the days pass. Heaps of love & happiness to you both.

hornby island engagement

jason has a long history on hornby island. He has family here & it’s been a big part of his life throughout the years. And in the last years, he & kimberley have made it a big part of their relationship. And it was in the sandstone caves at fords cove that he proposed to her. And so kimberley wanted to have their engagement session there. A sweet time to celebrate the beginning of their journey into marriage, wrapped in the place that means so much to them both. And so, on the morning of their wedding day, we met early & wandered along the sandstone, celebrating the last of their engagement, this sweet time before becoming mr & mrs.

here’s a little of that journey…

he’s a bit of a rascal, our fur friend casper. From sweet to swatty without a lot of warning. And he & tess are good buddies. At times, still a little hesitant but they both seem ok with that. And definitely ok with spending time together in the warm summer sunshine.

life is good. For all of us.
