New faces | Burlington Family Photographer

That blog title may have you scratching your head a little, thinking, what in the world is there to say about new faces?  Well, not much actually, but there is the fact that it’s just so nice to meet new people and see some new faces!

These clients are new to me, as I am to them.  While that can be daunting at times, (the idea of meeting a fresh new bunch of people) this family felt like old friends to me!  You may be wondering, why would meeting new people feel daunting?  So, let me clarify that, as a photographer it’s your job to make your clients feel comfortable enough around to show love and affection towards their family members.  It may sound like a super easy thing to do, but really think about your first meeting with people.  Are you the type that has no problem loving on your family in front of new people, or does it take you a few meetings to open up a little?

I always thought I was the type of person that takes a while to warm up to people, by a while I mean like 4-5 meetings, but the more I work with new people the more I’m realizing, maybe I’m not that kind of person at all.  Or maybe it’s the fact that I feel so comfortable with children, and that’s who I mainly focus on during my sessions.  Either way, I’m finding it easier and easier to meet new people and have them feel a comfort level with me pretty fast.  It’s kinda awesome actually, to know that I make people feel comfortable.  Hmmm, the more I write my thoughts on this the bigger the smile on my face becomes.

Anyways, enough about me and my thoughts!  I mentioned earlier that this family felt like old friends and they most certainly did.  We had a lovely time chatting and getting to know each other while they simply enjoyed each others company and soaked all the kisses and snuggles that their children offered them.  It was a melt worthy morning in deed, and I thank you for that Mom and Dad!

I hope you love this peek and I hope you were as comfortable with me as I was with you!

Candid Family | Kitchener Family Photographer

Every time I’ve worked with this family it’s been in a very candid manner.  From in home lifestyle sessions where we jumped on the beds and sat on the counter tops eating cake, to outdoor playful sessions, were we made bullrushes explode and ran up and down the bridge.  No matter what we’re doing we always have so much together!

While we captured a huge variety of candid moments and interactions together, I also posed them a couple of times throughout this session, and for us, I think that was a first.  When I browse through all the beautiful images from their session I absolutely love the posed photographs, however, it’s still the unposed images that speak to me the most.  They’re the ones that truly show this family’s loving ways.

Regardless of whether I capture them candidly or pose them casually, this photographic bunch always leave me with a massive smile on my face, and for that I thank them, each and every one of them!

I hope you love this session just as much as the others we’ve captured together.  May the images remind you of the love you have for each other and the sweet ways that you show that love.

Playful | Brantford Family Photographer

One of the biggest pieces of advice I can give to anyone heading into a family session is to be playful.  Now I know this can be difficult, especially if it’s your first time working with a photographer, because you don’t quite know each other yet, your unsure if you’re going to come off looking silly in your photos, and so on, but let me tell you, the playful interactions is what’s going to bring a true smile to your children’s faces.  Also, these are the moments that are certain to make your heart melt when you look back on them years down the road, when your child is grown.  I can guarantee you that!

This was my first time working with this gorgeous family and I couldn’t be more thrilled with how open and  playful they were with me.  It’s given me an absolutely huge variety of images to cull through, and no, that’s not a bad thing, not at all.  It just means that this family is going to have a rather large gallery to select from.  Not only that but the fact that they’re all so beautiful,  I swear I don’t have one bad photo from the bunch!

I can’t thank you enough Mom and Dad, for allowing your personalities to shine through during your session, for being playful with your beautiful baby girl, and for allowing me the pleasure of capturing all this sweetness!

I hope you love the images so far and I look so forward to sharing your full gallery with you soon.

Refreshing | Burlington Family Photographer

Every time I’ve worked with this family, it’s been good ol’ fashioned fun!  No matter if it’s super cold, crazy windy, or even a beautiful sunny day, these 4 always have such a wonderful time together.  The fact that I get to hang out with them, document the silliness and join in on their fun, well that’s just awesome!

This session was just like all our others, full or laughter (thanks to their eldest) and so much affection!  The only change was in the growth of these beautiful sisters, because we all know that our children age and have a birthday every year, but us adults, we don’t, our birthdays only come along every 3-5 years.  Isn’t that right?  HA!  No chance!  Although, wouldn’t that be kind of awesome??  Who am I kidding, I love celebrating my birthday!!

Okay, enough about me and my thoughts on ageing.  What I’m trying to get around to saying is that I always walk away from my time with this family feeling refreshed and reminded how much I love what I do.  So thank you for that Mom, Dad and you two blonde beauties!  I hope to continue to document your growth each and every year.

Aww, Love it!! Thank you for the beautiful photos!!

Posed yet Candid | Mississauga Family Photographer

Does that even make any sense?  Posed yet Candid.  I hope it does because that’s how I would describe my style of photography when it comes to family and children sessions.

The amount of posing that I do during a session is basically to point out where you should stand for the light to be most flattering, and yup, that’s about it.  The rest, that’s all them, my clients being themselves and enjoying the company that they are in.

Okay, so maybe I give slight direction throughout our time to look at each other (or somewhere else for that matter), and when I do that, that’s always the moment, when eyes lock and an expression is viewed and a reaction takes place.  It’s when natural smiles bust through.  It’s when everyone relaxes a little and the candid interactions begin naturally.

These sweet, playful boys became comfortable with me quite fast and the natural interactions came easily.  What a pleasure it was to work with them!!

Mom and Dad, I very much enjoyed getting to know you and your boys and documenting your family dynamic.  Thank you for being open and playful with your boys, it made for some super adorable images!

I hope you love your peek!
