When we began chatting about a location for the Miller’s extended family lifestyle session, we threw around some outdoor locations and the North Saskatchewan River banks was one of them. Little did I know it was where all the kids used to hang out after high school so it really held a lot of memories for them. That spot had also changed a lot since they had graduated and went from a secret hang out to a developed parking lot and walking trails – but beautiful nevertheless!
The Miller kids grew up as grain farmer’s and if I know anything about farming, you rise with the sun and turn in with the moon; your life is all about dust, dirt and heavy equipment every spring and fall. But that’s also what ties you together as a family and grows a bond that stands the test of time. When you work hard together, you also play hard together, and that’s what I witnessed firsthand when I photographed this family! I think they said something like they were the “serious” type but I didn’t have to work very hard to get those smiles cracking and feelings flowing 🙂
I think it was extra special when I found out that the sibling were buying their parents a family session for their mother/fathers day gift. There really isn’t a better way to show how much you love someone than by making memories that you can look back on and cherish for years to come.
