The DeZeeuw Family – Annapolis Valley Photography

It would be pretty hard not to fall a little bit in love with the DeZeeuws, after spending a morning in their company.  I, of course, didn’t even try!

Not only that, but I am totally in love with the idea of this photo shoot.  Their children and grandchildren made up a list of photographs they were hoping to see – things that they remembered from 45 years of living and loving in this same DeZeeuw household.  The little cupboard under the stairs where the toys are kept, they way they sit together with the crossword puzzle, or peeling potatoes for dinner… all the little nook and crannies, daily rituals, and memorable moments that go into a life to make it sparkle.

Thank you so much for inviting me to do this, it was incredibly joyful and rewarding! I would love to do more of this type of photoshoot – I only wish we had done it with my grandparents, when we had the chance.  Hopefully we can inspire others to do the same!

In the meantime, enjoy your Sneak Peek!

I love these pictures and the idea of capturing favourite memories and places within a home .. I have tears in my throat and a twinge in my heart.

Love love love these photo’s. What a gift to have the memories of Oma and Opa to hold in your hand or on the wall, it was a great idea.Love them all, especially the one with the house in the background and them walking down the path beside the garden. I can hear their voices now and the laughter! Captured wonderfully.

A photo book of love; crafted to pay homage to the home these two wonderful people created for friend and family to gather and enjoy. The photos tell this love story so well.

An unique idea for a special couple.

Thanks for passing along the love.
