Exploring one of Canada’s gorgeous beaches on its birthday was a perfect way to spend this past Monday. And this West Shore Beach family session turned out even more amazing than I ever could have imagined! We’ve known Kasia and Faizal for a few years now. I still remember the moment Faizal and I first chatted up a conversation; at the cleaning station in the NICU where Stella spent the first few months of her life. Yes, little Miss Aleena had the same idea as Stella to arrive on this world a little earlier than expected. And now she is just the most adorable and polite little lady, and happens to have a little brother; Adam!
I am so glad that this session got rescheduled a few times to the date that it finally happened! The beach was full and the sun was bright. However, we managed to find a secluded little spot with a tree blocking the rest of the crowd, and we made good use out of it. The sun sparkling off the water was the perfect background for this West Shore Beach family session!
Kasia’s parents (who actually surprised them with this session for their birthday last year) tagged along to keep the kids happy. When they left, they thanked me, time and time again. I was trying to wonder why. “I wish we had pictures like this when our kids were little”, said Kasia’s mom. That reminded me to be so thankful for these luxuries that modern technology has provided us with. Someday, she said, Aleena and Adam could look back at what their family was like when they were just little. I’m sure Kasia and Faizal will enjoy these memories for years to come. And thanks to digital technology, their kids can too!
These two are both super busy parents, who understand how fast time flies by. And how quickly kids grow up! Aleena has been taught such perfect manners by her mama, and Adam has his daddy’s love for music. It was nice to be able to use a national holiday to have their session. While this meant that the beach was flooded with people, thanks to finding and utilizing the perfect tree to block them out, we managed to make that beach look completely deserted! And this meant that this little family could really enjoy their time together. We laughed and we played. We took out the sand from Aleena’s shoes more times than I can count. We ran after Adam’s hat almost as many times! But in the end, we all left with smiles on our faces and happiness in our hearts.
