On a cool, dreary morning last week, I was welcomed into the cozy and warm home of the G family, to photograph their newest addition, Baby E.  She was truly the bright spot of the day.  So little and squishy and full of cuddles for mom and dad.  Her big brother was also clearly smitten, giving her lots of kisses!  They are going to have so much fun together as they grow up.

I photographed this family last, when they had just welcomed Baby I, into their lives.  And now here she is walking and talking and playing with her big sister E!  I love that I am able to reconnect with families and see how much their children have grown over the years.  I knew both girls would be adorable, but who would have guessed Baby I would turn out to be so blonde! I consider myself so lucky to do what I do – not only photographing these families, but catching up on their lives too!

I loved everything about this photo session.

The location, the fall colours, the warm evening, their outfits, but most importantly – the people!  Not only are they good friends, but they are a pretty amazing family, with a lot of love between them. It is so fun for me to capture these memories for them.

When mom first contacted me, through Facebook, to book a photo session for her family,  I didn’t really recognize her name, but I totally recognized her picture. Of course, my mind starts to race.

“Where do I know her from?”  “School?” “The neighbourhood?” “Is she friends with one of my friends?”

And then it hit me – hockey!  Seeing as we spend a good chunk of our time at the rink, it probably should have been my first thought.

I’ve blogged about hockey and the friendships created through the sport before.  Since our session, I’ve seen Mom and her girls at the rink a few times.  Two of our daughters even play against each other and once went head to head in a race for the puck!  It is so nice to wave hello after photographing and getting to know them a little bit.  What a wonderful sport, full of some of the nicest people I’ve met.

This whole session had me smiling from the tip of my toes to the top of my head!  These girls are silly and funny and full of giggles…and mom and dad aren’t much different!  Quite literally, a photographer’s dream!

I often refer to the B family as my ‘most photographed family’.  I’m not entirely sure if they hold the title, but if they don’t, it is pretty darn close!  I’ve witnessed their pregnancies, their babies and these kids grow year after year – and let me tell you, their outfits always rock!  Mom’s rusty orange cardigan, mixed with navy and the pop of turquoise, in A’s scarf and hair – photo perfection!

It was so great to catch up on another year.  Thanks K&M for trusting me with your family’s memories.

As young parents, we hear that phrase often.

“Enjoy them while they are little.  They grow like weeds!”

I’ve experienced this first hand myself, but this last family session just reinforced it further.  I photographed this family a few years ago.  I had just had my fourth baby, and these kids were just pre-teens themselves.  Fast forward to the present and my little girl is in grade one and these kids are now young adults!  They grew like weeds!

This time around, grandma and grandpa joined us in the family fun, which added another layer to the generational map.  It was so good to catch up with them and see what amazing people they have become!

This photo session was a surprise to this husband and dad, celebrating a very special birthday!

With both his daughters home for the occasion, mom wanted to take the time to capture the family they created and raised together.  I don’t think there is any better present than that!  It was a beautiful evening filled with many laughs and lots of fun.  I hope they treasure the memories for many years to come.

I love meeting families that are as big and crazy as mine!

Meet the A Family, who recently welcomed sweet baby M to their household.  They are officially now a family of six!  You can see and feel how much she is adored by her brother and sisters! Throughout the session, they were all so quick to comfort and soothe their littlest sister with kisses and songs.  I’m sure mom appreciates all the help!
