About In the River Valley
Hello! We are the Froese Family and my name is Roxanna, otherwise known as @intherivervalley on Instagram. Our young family of 5 is known locally and internationally as experienced, outdoor enthusiasts. With kids ages 5-11 and we love exploring everything in nature together. Whether it be through traveling to new countries, road tripping in our Toyota Sequoia aka "The Adventure Mobile", backpacking for a week in The Rockies, hiking stunning peaks for sunrise, canoeing across hidden lakes, or hitting the snowy mountain slopes in winter, we love to share tips and locations with other families around the world. We work to inspire people to get outdoors, try new things, and reconnect with the nature around them.
When we are not doing regular life at home, you can find us with our dog @peppertheheelerpup in the mountains camping, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, mountaineering, swimming in glacier lakes, exploring waterfalls or out enjoying the snow. Roxanna is also a volunteer for local environmental projects and the area's Search and Rescue Team. Located in the Canadian PNW, we are just one hour away from any activity we could wish to do!
As a photographer, I have been in the industry for 14 years. 4 years ago I switched to commercial photography and haven’t looked back. If you are interested in partnering with us please send an email at
