The end of March is not a very pretty time of the year when it comes to the great outdoors. The ground is pretty muddy, the skies are often dull and gray, and the trees are basically empty. And for a lot of sessions I typically give people the option of waiting until the weather is a little nicer, but when it comes to time sensitive things, like maternity sessions, there really isn’t any waiting because once that little one decides to make their entrance a maternity session isn’t really an option anymore, haha!
But luckily Bridget + Matt were completely on board for their late March session and we were able to mix in some outdoor and in-home photos to give some more range to their photos.
So, Mother Nature was kind of uncooperative for a couple weekends in October. Which of course meant we had to reschedule this session because of the rain. I think we were all a little nervous and worried that due to the delays we would miss the great fall colours, but luckily for all of us that definitely didn’t happen as their backyard was still stunning! Seriously, this place looked like it was plucked straight of a magazine! But what was even better than that was this adorable family, particularly sweet Little Archer!
I love doing sessions for people we actually know outside of our business life (aka friends). Not only is it an extra way I get to hang out with awesome people, but it also means the sessions are just so easy breezy. And in the case of Jessica + Jason, and their adorable little one Lena, it also meant that Kaylee got a play date with her boyfriend Gus.
What’s better than capturing the wedding day of an absolutely wonderful couple at a beautiful venue? Capturing the wedding day of a wonderful couple at a beautiful venue AND including their dog in the first look, ceremony and portraits!!
When Niki first mentioned that she and Steve would be including their pup Oscar in their wedding day I was completely on board. And then when I got to meet this happy puppers I was completely smitten with him and instantly understood why he HAD to be a part of the big day!
In case you are new around here, I am 100% a dog person. I smile anytime I see a puppy walking down the road and pretty much always say hello to them before the human walking the dog, and of course I smile from ear to ear when I see a dog with their head out the car window. Our own pup, Kaylee, brings so much light and joy to our lives and is the real star of our social media feeds.
So when Miranda + Jason wanted to use their session for some updated family photos of them and their pups, I was pretty darn stoked!
