Blair is an amazing student from UVic who was up in Tumbler Ridge on a coop work project this summer. We got to meet him through Jerrilyn Schembri — one of our biggest fans and also Trent’s sister — where he was staying while in Tumbler Ridge. Blair’s family, or more so one of his sisters and his mom, came up to stay for a week in July and Blair asked if we could shoot an outdoor family session. The window of opportunity was short as mom and sister were not in town long, and the weather proved to be some of the worst in the summer. The plan was to move indoors on the last day before everyone flew home, and then as luck would have it, the rain stopped and they raced out to the Tumbler Ridge Golf and Country Club for what turned out to be an amazing shoot full of colour, fog and sunsets.
Blair came over before he left for school to see all his images and I was please to be able to create with him some lovely gifts for his sister and mom. I was waiting to hear back from everyone before I could show you these pictures. I am excited to be able to give you a glimpse of just how great a day after a rainstorm can look here in Tumbler Ridge, not to mention some of the most fun people we shot this summer.
