Three Reasons You Should Consider an Extended Family Session

Summer holidays can mean a calendar filled with family get-togethers, including birthday celebrations, family reunions, and trips to visit Grandparents.

We just hit our one year mark living in Victoria, BC and all I have to say is: I love it here. I know that rainy winters aren’t for everyone, but I’ll take it over the cold any day.

The summer weather definitely helps!

It is with mixed emotions that I share with you that we are in the process of moving to Victoria, British Columbia. After three and a half years in sunny Saudi Arabia, our hearts are filled with all of the memories we've made meeting incredible people, having our two wonderful children, traveling to new places, and experiencing a fascinating culture.
