Tsawwassen Portraits // Liza

February 14, 2011

Tsawwassen is a town about 45 minutes from Vancouver. It’s best known as the place you have to go to in order to take a ferry to Victoria, but if you dig a little deeper, it’s also known for its incredible beaches. The best of the best of these beaches is Boundary Bay.

Boundary Bay is interesting because the bay is part Canada, part America. You can literally walk into the States from the beach and all of a sudden it’s miles instead of kilometres.

Nine times out of ten, there are no border guards there. But of course, the one time that there was, we were doing a photo session and this border guard was is no mood to be sweet-talked into letting us stay in the States to take a few pictures. He was all business, and back to Canada we went.

We had a great time shooting Liza’s all Canadian portrait session though.
