Danielle had messaged me a few months back wanting to book an extended family session, as her family was going to be visiting from the United States in June. So we set up the date, towards the end of June when we would be sure to have good weather. Well, as the day approached the weather didn’t look so good. But with a session like this, we must go on! Lucky for us, the rain stopped for a few hours (even though the skies were still very grey). Now 25 people could be considered a big group, but they rocked it like champs. Not knowing when the rain could start again, we wanted to try and move through the photos as quickly as possible. They were such a great group and so much fun! While we were doing photos they would cheer on every cyclist, runner, and walker that came along the path. They even cheered me out of the parking lot when we left. It could have been a tough session with the number of people and the dreary weather, but they made it an absolute blast! Thank you, Danielle and family, for trusting me with your updated family photos.
I have been fortunate to be able to capture this family for the past few years. I remember back to when we arrived at the house where Moira was getting ready for her wedding, and she slyly told me that she had just found out that week she was pregnant with their first child. I was beyond excited for them! Fast-forward 2 ½ years and many photos later, and she was messaging me to let me know that baby #2 was on the way.
Moira and Derek are the best parents, and I couldn’t be happier that they would be welcoming baby #2 this summer! We met up at Derby Reach Park late one Saturday evening to capture this exciting moment in their lives. This little girl is already so loved by her big sister and the most amazing parents! I can’t wait to share their newborn session with everyone in just a few weeks!
This year has definitely been a winter to remember. I really can’t remember the last time we got as much snow as we did this year and as many storms as we did. The great part about getting that kind of snow if being able to take advantage of it for some amazing family sessions! We first met Kari at a wedding a few years back where she was one of the bridesmaids. We were so excited when she contacted us to take some new family photos for her, and even more excited when the session fell during one of the snowy periods. The morning light against the snow at Derby Reach was beautiful and we couldn’t be happier with the way the photos turned out! Thank you for trusting us with your memories, Mueller Family!
This girl ahs been in my life since the day I was born! While we are not related by blood we always called each other cousins, and realistically I think of her as more like a sister! So, when she contacted me to do some updated photos of her and her kids I couldn’t say no. What we were not expecting was the cold and winter weather, but what an amazing backdrop for a family session.
My little niece and nephew are the cutest and did amazing during the session. We wrapped up the morning with a quick trip to Starbucks for some hot chocolates! I love this session so much and I’m so excited to share the photos with you.
I always love fall photos! There’s something about the warm glow of the sun on the fall leaves that makes me oh so happy. I was so excited that the weather turned out better than expected for our fall mini sessions this year. It was so great to meet some new families and catch up with some of our past clients as well. Here’s a few of our favourites from each of our sessions.
Back in June we met up with Amanda and Cassandra at Derby Reach to take some updated sister photos as a gift for their parents! They asked that I hold off sharing the photos until they gave them to their parents and today I got the green light to share them!
We always love getting both these girls in front of the camera as they are absolute naturals!! We laughed tonnes during their session and finished off with a bit of air guitar!!
Thank you again Amanda and Cassandra for always trusting us with your memories!
