I love milestone sessions! Not only do I get to hang out with wee babes just that little bit more before they grow up, I get to watch and document them as they do it!
Little Baby Leo came with his entire family and entourage for his 100 Days Milestone Session and it was so nice to be able to see his loved ones rally around him to celebrate this moment in his life. 100 Days is an important milestone in the Chinese culture as it represents the wish that the baby will live 100 years and reaches longevity, and it was such an honour to be able to capture this special day for this wonderful family!
I started shooting family session about a year after I started weddings, and honestly, I have loved every minute of it! Not only do I get to work with some of the best families and most hilarious kiddos, but I get to see our couples and families as they start and grow their families over the years! It really is such a treat to be able to watch these tiny babes grow into super fun kids full of spunk and personality! So with that all said, I think it is only fitting to wrap-up the 2020 year that was filled with so many wonderful family sessions!
The drive out to White Lake was seriously gorgeous! The majority of the leaves may have fallen off the trees already, but the area is absolutely stunning year round! And you know what was somehow even better than driving through the countryside on a Sunday afternoon? Getting to work with this amazing family again. And this time around there were even more of them as this was no ordinary family session, but instead an extended session for both sides of Mariah + Ben’s family.
Ottawa had a really weird Fall season this year. The leaves took their time arriving and when they did they really didn’t last long. Or rather, they didn’t last long on their own as they were quickly joined by a decent layer of snow everywhere. I forget who I heard this phrase from, but it was like having two seasons in one. It worked out really well for the look of photos, but it definitely made Fall photos a fair bit colder than they have been in past years. Lucky for me I had some pretty fantastic families to work with these guys!
