In Home Family Session | Durham, ON


Its winter, I get it, no one wants to get their pictures done, its cold outside and blah in the house. But shortly after Christmas this family had an idea, keep the Christmas tree up and lets do some family shots. I would be lying if I said I wasn't a wee bit nervous, the father of this family after all is a photographer himself (check him out at www.jdpworks.com), I've filmed them before and really wanted to do them proud. Our first meeting was in my old studio, which I closed down 2 years ago after I decided to commit solely to documentary work, but boy did I fall in love with this little boy, he is so easy, so joyful and so fun. So seeing them again really made my heart swell.

So we met late one morning in North Whitby, to do a little documentary, their family has grown and they now have the most precious baby girl. I couldn't be more happier with how these images turned out, with a good mix of candid (yes they played a proper game of hockey in the basement), true documentary and some lightly guided posing I think these are images to be cherished for a lifetime.

Thank you, I enjoyed our time together so much xo
