The 'Kirk' Flock

Crow's Nest Photography shares space on Whistling Kettle Ranch in the Boundary Region of British Columbia. Nestled in the Granby Valley amid the Monashee Mountains. The air is crisp, the backgrounds are clean, authentic, and dramatic!

In October two families came up to have their 2011 family portraits done. 

The Kirk Family

Amber and Dave with their two beautiful children Nolan and Sasia.

 We all enjoyed the walk and fresh, Autumn air. The best portraits happen when you allow people (including little people) to be themselves. Each family is unique. Their interactions, personalities, age combinations. They need room to breath, make noise... in Nolan's case... roll around in the grass. Observing people in a natural setting with out distractions is prime! I fall in love easily and find beauty and character in the smallest actions. The way he holds his wife. The twinkle in an eye when a child hears their parent sing a favorite song. Bare feet. Kisses. Who doesn't? I love what I do and I hope it shows!

Turns out Amber loves children as much as I do... she co-owns a lovely boutique called 4 Little Monkeys
in the heart of Grand Forks, BC. They sell gently used clothes for all family members and one of my favs Melissa & Doug toys. I'm looking forward to mounting a 16x20 metal print of the family up on their store wall. I'll update this posting with a photo of it when it's produced.
