Shooting in my hometown is special. Shooting at Arbutus Cove was even better. I used to haunt this place as teenager, so it was only fitting that I got the privilege of photographing my brother and his family there. This place epitomizes everything I love about Vancouver Island – I find it hard here in Seattle to find long stretches of rugged beaches sheltered by gorgeous green bluffs. I love what we captured that beautiful balmy evening with family on the island. I can’t wait to go back!
