This family is hilarious. Loud. High pitched. And totally silly. Sometimes you just have to surrender to what it means to be 4-year-old twin boys – wild and sweet. And what it means to be the responsible oldest sibling (‘mom, did you bring the parking pass?’ + ‘I can’t ride without my helmet’). I had the best time photographing this fam.
A perfect day with Cassie and her family. I was honoured when Cassie asked me to photograph a day with her new little one, husband and big sister – Cassie’s a photographer too – based in Parry Sound and that’s always a little daunting. Thank you for trusting me to do this for you, at home.
There are a couple of families on my ‘must shoot’ list. Here’s one of them. I met Deb and Martyn through business and our little families have grown quickly together. There are just a few people beyond my family that I’ve maintained such a connection with. From photographingthebirth of baby J last year, to quiet afternoons of tears and breastfeeding, to last-minute daycare pick-ups and trading homes just to get a full nights sleep Deb and her fam have become our chosen family. My C and her E are best buds – in fact when my Charlie saw me editing this family session last night he asked where I was? Why wasn’t he there? And told me promptly he wanted to “go there now and see Deb and Maaaawtin”. We love this family dearly and are so lucky to be a part of their lives. We’ve been planning this family shoot for ages and when they decided to go camping on Eagle Lake in South River, near Algonquin Park (as a general reference) we knew it was our opportunity.
Thank you to my NEW second shooter/assistant Myranda, who came out with me, as she has to a number of sessions this season. I’m so proud of the progress she’s making. A few of these shots are hers and I’m thrilled to be including them here.
