So I recently was contacted by a former clients sister, Courtney, who was hoping to get some family photos done of her and her wee man!
I knew it was going to be a beautiful session as nothing is better then wee ones stealing the lime light! And it was just that, a beautiful day, a beautiful family and beautiful images were captured.
I was so happy to meet this little guy (mom too!) and have since been asked to capture some fun moments at his first birthday party! YAY! I love me some birthday party pics!
When I met Corrine, I was actually photographing one of her bestfriends sons birthday parties...she didn't know it yet, but I was going to be photographing her too!
She soon touched base with me, and I was ever so glad! She had a wee one too, and was excited to get some family photos done. Of course! And to boot, we would be doing it in Toronto! Ye-ha! I like different locations, I couldn't wait. That was, if I didn't end up in North Bay, and alas, I didn't:)
They were such a pleasure to work with, and were so warm and inviting. Lucky me.
Oh, did I mention, they are just a couple of scientists ;)
Okay, well, 6 if we include Roxy, their 'spirited' dog!
So when Katie contacted me, she originally wanted just pictures of her boys. I said no problemo! I told her though, that I might not be able to contain myself and that I may have to take a picture of mommy and daddy at some point too (sometimes, these candid moments of just 'being' there with your kids make for the BEST pictures!). So a few weeks went by and we touched base again. She had a favour to ask. "We're expecting and would like you to do the big reveal", and in Katie's words , I thought "Shut the front door"! I would LOVE TO! Because as we all know, nothing is really ever official, until it's graced us with it's presence on facebook:)
With saying this, we had fun. The boys romped around, Roxy got some good exercise in and mom and dad were just plain 'ol fun to work with.
I wish them all the very best, and was so very thankful to be apart of this special experience! THANK YOU!!
What a sweetheart this one:)
He sure was raring to go when I got there (and when I left a few hours later). But with saying this, he was the most well behaved newborn I've met to date! He just wanted to be aware, and present. Poor mom so badly wanted a sleeping newborn pose, but I loved his expressions and beautiful gaze, I wouldn't have changed it, that was him:)
And of course, the moment I left, he fell right asleep:)
What a beautiful day for some outdoor photos, we were lucky!
Kenzie and ‘BOB’ , oh yes, the dogs name is ‘BOB’, were in true form and such great troopers! We walked far and wide to find some nice spots and if we could have only gotten Kenzie out of her ‘play clothes’ (I think we managed a few shots, but money ‘was’ exchanged in the process ;)….
We had fun, and she was my little side kick. Kids are so very inquisitive as this tender age and I just love it. I think I lead her to believe that there were fairies and horses that lived in this grand forest, oh, and yes, that a Harry Potter train was to magically arrive…
Mom was such a good trooper too, it’s hard being persuasive you know!
