This is a special one. MTB Kingston is my happy place. I rode over 1000km on these trails over the past year and I’ve met a lot of my close friends in this community. It’s a place where you can go and just belong and bond over an inexplicable passion for tearing through the woods on two wheels. I met the dad to these two little dudes earlier this summer and every time we ride together we can talk excitedly about bikes, but invariably our conversation turns to the highs of raising two kids as well as lamenting over the lows.
When he found out I was a photographer there was this pause, then he says “oh we’ve really been meaning to update our family photos!” This statement makes me nervous, thinking that the next statement might have to do with a typical setting and everyone wearing matching outfits. Instead I pitch Active Family Photo and he’s hooked. Phew.
The Gurd family is pretty rad. Enjoy our shoot that includes some riding at sunset, some running around and even a few shots where we ditched the bikes and actually looked at the camera.
