Bear Creek Park

7 months ago I met this family and took newborn photos of their gorgeous baby boy. That was when I was just starting up my website and building my portfolio! How fast time flies and I was delighted and honoured that they asked me to take photos of their family once again, but this time including more of the extended family. My client’s father underwent surgery about a month ago and she wanted to have family photos taken outdoors with him in them. She explained to me that there was no other place to go than Bear Creek Park and I certainly understood that request as soon as we arrived! Her dad has been jogging here for 27 years every day, rain or shine. When he arrived he immediately ran into someone he knew in the park and was happy to stop for a quick chat. Throughout our session he continued bumping into people he knew…he is friends with all the “regulars” at this park! His two daughters told me stories of him getting them to jog with him when they were growing up and how much they hated going, but he pushed them to work to their limit. It is evident that they have been able to carry this life lesson on with them and they have both grown up to be warm, successful and caring women. Through the cold day I could feel the warmth of their love for each other and had a great time. Thank you so much for allowing me to capture your family today!

After my session outdoors I came home for a maternity session, but it’s getting late so there will be another blog post with some maternity photos coming up tomorrow too! I can’t express how lucky I feel to be able to enjoy a job which allows me to meet so many fun and wonderful people in one day and to capture them the way I see them through my lens!

This little lady was full of “sass” and had all her best model poses ready. She didn’t forget that we bribed her with M&M’s last time, but I forgot to bring some today so I’ve promised her some treats when I drop off the prints…I won’t forget this time sweetie, I promise!
