I was so excited to meet with Rob, Alanna and Ariana while they visited Niagara on the Lake. They are from Florida- where it is warm- and came here- where it (was) cold for a vacation! Although the weather was not perfect, the location certainly was and we had a great time! Arianna wasn’t super happy but Mom and Dad had lots of tricks to keep her smiling and we got some great shots!
Rob and Alanna clearly adore their beautiful (just turned) one year old! I love this family portrait below!
I am so blessed to have wonderful clients who hire me again and again to photograph their families. In this case, I first photographed Charlotte in her Mom’s tummy, then for Christmas portraits last fall. This time around it was all about Charlotte, celebrating her first birthday! We started out with some portraits of her in a cute little dress her Mom made, and then moved on to the cake smash. Charlotte was hilarious! She refused to smile (at the camera at least!), loved to rock the box/basket she was in till she was about to tip over, and didn’t want to get into the cake at all! None of my usual tricks were working with her. Mom, Dad and myself were dancing all over the place, singing songs and making fools of ourselves, while she just sat and watched. Little did she know we were still getting great shots!
Thanks again Steve and Lindsey- it’s so much fun working with you and seeing your family grow!
“There has never been, nor will there ever be, anything quite so special as the love between a mother and son”
Nancy contacted me for a session for herself and her 4 year old son, Ethan. We shot at Port Dalhousie on Mother’s Day weekend. It was a sentimental session for them- a new beginning, at one of their favorite places to be together.
I encouraged them to bring along some of their favorite activities to personalize the session, as well as a change of clothing to add variety to their images. I think the results speak for their self. Their session was full of love, laughter and fun. We played football, Boggle, tickled in the grass, skipped rocks, found sea shells and just had a blast!
After viewing the images from their session Nancy E-mailed me this ~
‘They are so amazing…I’m almost in tears. You captured such wonderful moments.’
This is why I do what I do.
Feel free to view all the images from their session on my website under Featured Session.
