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.
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!
I wanted to officially announce that my photography business is operating out of Chilliwack again, for past and future clients I wanted to let you know I am here to photograph your biggest and smallest moments again. I know a lot of people are still asking if I am in town, and YES I am!

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!

I adore little ones, and the best part of Infant and Children photography is when they are related to you!
Ian’s cousin Morgan is the proud mommy of two of the happiest children I know. When Ian and I were married we had Dylan as our ring bearer, but Rayanna was still safely tucked away in mommy’s tummy; that didn’t stop Morgan from performing the most impressive 7 month pregnant Russian dance I have ever seen.
When I told family I was coming down to visit and photograph a wedding Morgan was the first to schedule a visit. I couldn’t wait to hold my newest “niece”. When I turned the camera on her she instantly lit up. In all my years I have never had a baby so joyful for an entire photo session. Dylan her older brother was having none of it, and it took a trip out to the back yard in the warm sun to liven his moods. I love these kids so much and I’m blessed to have had a long visit with them on this trip down to BC.
Ok, seriously, first picture taken and she was already all smiles! ↓
Dylan may have not agreed to a formal photo session, but I did take a candid while he played alongside his sister with his dinosaur ↓
Morgan may have brought enough outfit changes to put a catwalk to shame, but her favourite dress was “The little black dress”, and I couldn’t agree more ↓
When the formal pictures were over we ventured to the backyard for Dylan to stretch his legs and find adventure; and that he did ↓
I have known the Mader’s, well, since before I can remember. My parents sang “I swear” by All for One at their wedding. And their son Geoff married my cousin Brittany, who was more like a sister than a cousin because we grew up across the park from each other and are only a month apart in age.
The Mader’s hold an important place in the history of my photography. When I came home from Ireland 7 years ago I embarked on becoming a full fledged photographer. My very first paid session was the Mader’s, I remember they were so patient with me and they hung their family portrait in the Front room of their home. It was humbling and it was encouraging to have someone believe in me so much.
Now when Wendy tried to set up the next family portrait schedules conflicted, time was never in our favour, Wendy was definitely trying her hardest to make it work, and a little over a week and a half ago, before they went on her Mexican Vacation I finally had the privilege to photograph them once more!
I absolutely adore Jon and Wendy, and think of them as my immediate family!
On May 11th Maximus Antonio Garcia was born to Tony and Larissa, after having 3 beautiful little girls in a row it was such a welcome surprise. From Camouflage to ATV’s this little boy will have such a fun childhood.
Congrats again to the Garcia’s on a healthy beautiful baby boy!
A few weeks ago prior to baby Maximus being born I was blessed to photograph Tony and Larissa’s little brood of cuties. I’ve visited the hospital for both Lyla’s and Jessa’s first days in this world and they have all turned into the cutest little dumplings!
The weather looked dicey leading up to our photo session but turned out perfectly for it!
Congrats Tony and Larissa to little baby Maximus Antonio Garcia!
