Our Vancouver Trip + My Favourite Vancouver Spots

Our Vancouver Trip + My Favourite Vancouver Spots

After a glorious 6 weeks in Vancouver, it's time for us to head back to Sydney. This trip has been so full in the best of ways. We got to attend two incredibly fun weddings, including a Greek Orthodox wedding where I had the privilege of being the maid of honour. We also spent time on Gabriola Island, my favourite Gulf Island and a place I have been visiting my whole life. Because this was my first visit home in 5 years where I haven't been breastfeeding a baby, I had a lot more freedom to get out and explore. I decided before we left that I wanted to be super intentional in how I spent my time in Vancouver. I didn't want to get to the end of our visit and realise that I hadn't seen the people I wanted to see, or done the things I wanted to do. Before we left, I started a list in Wunderlist called 'Vancouver Bucket List'. I had another list simply called 'Vancouver things', where I documented all of our adventures, from the hikes we did to the cafes we visited. I'm so glad I did this! It kept me inspired and motivated to keep exploring and make the most of our time. And now it's fun to look back and see everything we were able to do.

Gabriola Island

Shortly after arriving in Vancouver, my whole family headed to spend five days in a tiny cabin on Gabriola Island. For as long as I can remember, Gabriola has been "our island." We spent time there almost every summer when my brother and I were kids, and my dad even lived there for five years. It really is a special place.

Vancouver Family Photographer

This time next week the four of us will be on a plane heading to Vancouver! And we are all very excited about it (not so excited about the 15 hour flight though)!

I haven't been home since Christmas 2014 so I cannot wait to indulge in all my Vancouver favourites like: seeing my friends and family not on a computer screen, going to Jericho to swim and play, getting pirate packs at White Spot, shopping at Anthropologie and I could go on and on...

While I'm there I would love to do family, maternity, newborn or yoga shoots. Vancouver is so beautiful at this time of year and I'm looking forward to planning some fun shoots that incorporate the amazing scenery. If you're interested, send me an email at gabrielafearn@gmail.com

See you soon Vancouver friends!

vancouver family photographer: mother + daughter

While we were in Vancouver, a friend of mine asked if I could take photos of her and her mom. So one very, very, cold morning, we met up at Jericho Beach (my favourite Vancouver beach) and did a quick session. I've known Andrea and her mom for a long time, and they're as close as a mother and daughter can be. They even (without planning it) wore pretty much the same outfit; we had a good laugh over that one.
