Family Photography in Tofino

There are so many beautiful places in this world, but perhaps the most beautiful spot near my own tiny corner of it is Tofino, particularly at dawn.

The early morning mist, the giant expanse of beach... it's indescribable –even with the photographic proof!– how magical this place feels. We'll dance on the edge of the surf at Chesterman Beach, explore tidal pools, or search for the secret cove at the end of Tonquin Trail.

let's create some magic together, shall we?

Family Photographs in Tofino

Rebecca’s family photography sessions are child-focused, with a directed candid approach: you will never have to worry about what to do, where to go, or posing yourself or the children. Rebecca will guide you as she captures posed and candid family portraits.

Celebrate your Family

The way your baby lights up when you kiss his little toes. How tightly your toddler grips your finger as she wobbles beside you. Your little boy resting his head on your shoulder, arms wrapped tightly around your neck. Your little girl shrieking with laughter as daddy spins her around the room. Let's capture the important things.

Thank you so much for helping us catch a glimpse of these precious days and ages...they go by achingly fast but these photos are such a gift.”–Mikaela, Washington

Planning your Family Portrait Session in Tofino

You’ll prepare for your family photography session with the help of a portrait planning handbook, and a planning telephone call with Rebecca. Together you'll discuss your children's personalities, what to wear for your photoshoot, and select the best location for your family.

A few of Rebecca's favourite spots on Vancouver Island include Hatley Castle, Butchart Gardens, Victoria Harbour, Uplands Park, Cattle Point, and Island View Beach.
