Capturing Unbreakable Bonds | The Caswell Family Session
As a photographer, my lens has been fortunate to capture countless moments of love, joy, and connection. Each family I have had the privilege to photograph has their own unique story, but the Caswell family holds a special place in my heart. Their journey through life, love, and resilience is truly inspirational, and I am honoured to share their story with you through my lens.
The Caswell family, hailing from Chilliwack and Alberta, is a living testament to the power of love and unity. Not only a large and tight-knit family, their family has also faced significant challenges together. Their collective spirit and unwavering support for one another are awe-inspiring, and it’s an honour to witness their journey and document their moments of togetherness.
One of the pivotal moments in the Caswell family’s story was when they experienced a life-changing accident involving one of their beloved grandsons. He had to relearn how to talk and walk, and the family rallied around him in unwavering support. This difficult time tested their strength but ultimately brought them closer together. In fact, the brothers of Levi stood around to support him to stand for these family portraits, a touching sight of brotherhood in action.
Through my lens, I’ve had the privilege to capture the Caswell family in their purest moments. I have photographed their big group shots, where the sheer number of family members is a testament to their legacy. These images portray the essence of togetherness, as they stand shoulder to shoulder, showing that no matter the distance that separates them, their hearts are forever entwined.
Candid shots of family laughing are some of my favorite moments to capture. The Caswell family has laughter is infectious, and it’s clear that their humor and joy are strong bonds that hold them together. The genuine happiness that flows through their family is evident.
In addition to the big group shots and candid laughter, I’ve also had the privilege to capture some special moments within the family. It’s in these intimate moments that you truly see the heart of this family.
The Caswell family’s story is one of perseverance. They have walked through the fire of life’s challenges, emerging stronger and more closely knit. My time spent photographing them has given me a glimpse into a family that cherishes each other, no matter the distance that separates them. Through their trials and triumphs, they serve as an inspiration to us all, reminding us of the power of love and togetherness.
As a photographer, I am grateful to have been a part of their journey and to have captured the moments that make their story so extraordinary. The Caswell family is a reminder that, no matter the obstacles, with love, resilience, and a sense of humour, you can overcome anything that comes your way.
The photos I’ve shared here are just a small glimpse into their family’s remarkable journey, and I hope they inspire you as much as they have inspired me. It’s a privilege to share their story through my lens.
I met Jocelyn through photography when I moved to Vernon, and our friendship is something I cherish. We became fast friends and I was blessed to help her document this amazing time in her life when her littles are this age and still as protective and adoring to their siblings.
As you will see flipping through these photographs, Jocelyn and her husband Carlos have loved each other well and it is reflected in the joy and love their children show to each other and those they meet.
Carolina contacted me back in July asking about booking a family session to commemorate all of her siblings in the same place at the same time. Carolina and her Husband live in Dubai and to mark their visit I had the joy of photographing their family, which consisted of her brother and his wife and kids, her sister, and her mom and auntie. It was a slightly rainy day but we persevered and in the end the photos were so full of laughter I couldn’t help but smile as I edited and delivered their photos!
What an awesome way to start Easter Sunday than with a beautiful Spring Session with the Meek Family.
Cindy contacted me as soon as the Spring Sessions were announced, she had been following my photography for years and she was excited to finally round up her family for family photos. Little did I know that this wonderful family had known me since I was a small child, they had attended the same school and church as my family.
Steve and Terri are the amazing parents of three wonderful women, Cindy, Rachel and Alicia. Rachel is married to John and they have the sweetest children, Tula and Nigel. It was definitely a session full of laughter and beaming smiles, at least when the kids didn’t have to take off their jackets.
The sun was high in the city of the midnight sun. Yellowknife was a buzz as the weekend was fast approaching the Folk on the Rocks music festival, but the Thursday evening rendered some spectacular light and an equally amazing family.
Mellisa and her troop of boys came to the session in matching blues and matching smiles. I remembered the trail well and we talked and laughed from each spot we stopped to photograph at. I adored this session for the amazing connection between a mother and her sons.
Thank you Mellisa for inviting me to photograph your family photos!

The Morris family is a family full of laughter and joy and their family session yesterday was so much fun to photograph. Stuart had contacted me before mothers day and wanted to book a session to honor his amazing wife, well she did hint it quite heavily to him! I am so delighted to share their family session as it is full of vibrancy that shines through each family member’s individual personalities.
Diane you are truly a wife and mother of character and I think the world of you as a role model, how fun it is to spend an evening in the warm summer rain surrounded by the jewels that are your children.
Please like, share, or comment on how amazing you think this family is, lets show them the love!!!
How stunning is Diane, what a beautiful soul and exceptional beauty.
Over 3 and a half years ago I had the honor of photographing Kenny and Lisa’s Manning Resort Wedding. IT was a weekend celebration that submersed me right into the family activities as well as staying with the entire family in a lodge. I remember how much I enjoyed photographing their wedding and was overjoyed when I got a phone call a week before Mothers Day.
Lisa’s mom contacted me about a Family Session for her daughter as a birthday gift which was perfectly nestled close to mothers day. I count it a blessing and an honor to be asked to photograph previous clients in the new seasons of their life, for Lisa that meant becoming a Mommy.
Emery I am told is a burst of sunshine with smiles to spare, and boy did mom and dad try to get her to smile. Between their laughter and mine Emery was confused, but with a little tickle on the tummy from her daddy she lit up!

Ian and I went on a getaway to the Island where we met the Vage family out of perfect happenstance. Heidi and her family live at a Christian Camp called Esperanza, nestled along the inlet. Our first introduction was when we stopped at their dock to fuel up our boat.
As Heidi said “It was the Lords timing” that I was in their small town to photograph her family, and after a week of rain the sun came out for their session, it was truly blessed.
Like, share, and leave a comment for this amazing family doing great things for children, youth, and young adults!
