Lana & Derek

The other weekend my friend Carla's mom, Lana, celebrated her 50th birthday! As a surprise Carla gave her this photoshoot with her husband Derek as a gift, and at the end of the shoot had me lead them to her surprise party at the Esplenade where friends and family were waiting! What a creative birthday surprise - a wonderful way to celebrate I think.
I so enjoyed photographing these two - there is no shortage of spark there, a joy to see in couples at all stages of their journey together!
Thanks for the great time you guys, and happy 50th Lana!
