Family sessions are one of my favourite types of work in the summer. The giggles of sisters, the parents giving the look, the simple act of capturing portraits in a moment in time. A moment that you will go back to as they grow, as time goes onward through seasons, grades and years.
Kids sometimes shine at different times in the session, I liked two of the images from the brick wall but preferred the way the little one opened up in the later images. There are no rules on how a session should go and sometimes kids need time to open up. This is why minis are not my favourite way to do family work because every child deserves time to shine.
Walking, talking and laughing – these are the images I love making because it speaks so much to the moments we do not capture. The closeness of a family and their aunt, the way a family works and supports one another throughout life’s moments.
Every. Single. Session. I will ask for a family hug. I love them. Expect a family hug in your session.
We had so much fun running up and down downtown Brooklin’s main drag. Balloons are optional but I loved the extra pop of colour they gave this session.
The cover image bears repeating. The vehicle a family car passed down with a lot of meaning. The girls are so sweet in the vehicle and it is for sure one of my favourites from this session.
