Recommended Locations

I'm pleased to suggest a range of premium locations to my family session clients.  Of course, we are not limited to these options! I'm happy to discuss other ideas you have for locations, including your own private land and locations south of the border. Please contact me at 604-781-6477 to discuss your needs today.

These are just a few of the possibilities I have up my sleeve, tried and true locations that I adore as settings for my clients.

Stewart Farm, South Surrey

Public Bathrooms: Yes

Wheelchair Accessibility: Limited

Rain Cover: Yes

Pet Friendly: Leashed

Parking: Free parking lot

Stewart Farm is consistently my top choice for family sessions year-round: it offers amazing scenery and picturesque backgrounds.  In addition to the farmhouse and picket fences are porches, walking trails, meadows, forests, a heritage apple orchard and a waterfront along the Nicomekl River.  Due to the covered options available at Stewart, this site can be used year-round and rain or shine (restrictions apply).  

 

Stewart Farm also has an amazing number of fun events throughout the year.  Please see https://www.surrey.ca/culture-recreation/2875.aspx for more information on their events and on these beautiful grounds!

Brittania Shipyards, Richmond

Public Bathrooms: Yes

Wheelchair Accessibility: Yes

Rain Cover: Limited

Pet Friendly: Leashed

Parking: Free parking lot

After Stewart Farm, Brittania Shipyards is one of my favourite locations for beautiful scenery.  A former shipyard turned into a heritage site, the property has been lovingly restored into a beautiful environment.  Perched on the Fraser River with some views of the water, Brittania offers a wonderful  marine feel with boardwalks and distressed wood buildings.  There are limited options for coverage in the event of rain.

 

Brittania Shipyards is home to some amazing events during the year, including the not-to-be-missed Richmond Maritime Festival.    Please see https://britanniashipyard.ca for more information!

Deas Island, Ladner

Public Bathrooms: Yes

Wheelchair Accessibility: Limited

Rain Cover: No

Pet Friendly: Leashed

Parking: Free parking lot

Deas Island is a lovely regional park tucked on Deas Island along the banks of the Fraser River.  Perfect for more rustic, natural backgrounds, the park offers lovely footpaths through forests, a variety of fences, foot bridges and a few heritage buildings scattered around the park.  It's also a lovely place to set up a picnic and enjoy a day in the park!

Note: due to the size of the park and the distance between some of the footpaths and the bathrooms, parts of this park may be difficult for those needing wheelchair accessibility.

Ladner Harbour Park, Ladner

Public Bathrooms: No

Wheelchair Accessibility: Limited

Rain Cover: No

Pet Friendly: Unleashed

Parking: Free parking lot

Ladner Harbour Park is a hidden gem tucked close to downtown Ladner and offering views of the adorable Ladner waterfront.  This park offers two distinct backgrounds - among footpaths or in front of the water - and has the amazing advantage of being a dog-friendly park that allows unleashed critters!

Note: due to the proximity to fairly stagnant water, the park is not recommended in late summer unless you have a particular love for mosquitos.
