It had been six years since I last saw this family of four. We did this session in our yard and also used the railway tracks. The light was harsh on the tracks but we did manage to get some great images. I enjoyed photographing them again.
I love photographing children as they grow up and seeing the same families over the years. I’ve done a few sessions with this lovely family and their 2 sons, who are now 5 and 7 years old. We had a lot of fun doing this session at Kildonan Park.
I hadn’t done any photography sessions for over a month. That has been my choice. I don’t feel safe having people in my home studio with Covid cases being so high. I have a husband who has lymphoma and I want to be extra vigilant about exposure, especially with the new variants. My husband is fine right now and we want to keep it that way.
Now that we have warm weather and the leaves are out on the trees, I will do sessions outdoors. The session that I am featuring today was done on my property and the family shown lives right around the corner from us!
I love the picture below. Our neighbour’s dog, Gypsy, saw us outside and came over to visit. Gypsy was excited to give me hugs and kisses and didn’t want to leave. Usually, I welcome Gypsy, but in this case, I needed her to move, but the whole interaction gave us this wonderful picture!
After Gypsy left, we were able to get a posed image.
I loved photographing these 2 beautiful girls; aged 6 and 8. Aren’t they lovely?
I love meeting families and photographing their children while they grow up. It has been very rewarding to have done 8 sessions with this beautiful family over the last 5 years. I was currently working on a First Year Plan for their youngest son, but because of Covid we didn’t get the 4 sessions done in a year. L is 19 months old now and his big brother is 5. Aren’t they adorable?
Today I am featuring 2 of my favorite kids; my great niece and nephew, who I have been photographing since they were born. Sarah has just turned 17 and Nate is now 15.
There are many features around our property that work well for photographing people; including the train tracks (which I know you are not allowed to be on, but the train seldom comes and when it does it goes really really slowly), a forest of pine trees, a farmer’s field and lots of colourful trees. We did this session right around our property.
It was my pleasure to photograph this lovely family of 2 boys and their girl dog. It was one of the easiest, most pleasurable sessions ever, as these brothers at a year and 5 years old were so cute and cooperative and their dog was adorable.
Maddie, the dog, is a 10 year old black German shepherd. She was very comfortable coming to visit and went exploring in the house, surprising my husband, who was sitting at his second floor office when she suddenly appeared behind him. Needless to say, he was a bit shocked at first!
I photographed my first little girl’s dress up sessions yesterday and it was a hit!
This is Iszie, whose birthday is today. The last time I photographed her she was 3. She’s just as adorable now as she was then. Iszie loves posing and the camera loves her. In these images she is wearing her mom’s grad dress and her grandma’s wedding dress. Isn’t she adorable!
Happy 6th Birthday Iszie! You are one of my all time favorites!
