It’s been forever since I took my kids out for photos, but after spending the last few weeks photographing so many other families I was inspired by the gorgeous fall colour this year and decided that it was finally time! Petrie Island in Orleans is only minutes from our front door and is one of my favourite places in the area to do family photos. So it made sense to start there. Needless to say, I’m glad I did. The colours were gorgeous, that warm fall evening light was gorgeous…and I suppose my models were pretty okay to look at too… 😉
I’m so, so glad I took the time to do this with them this year. With the chaos of everyday life it’s so easy to let the years pass without stopping to document where and who they are in their lives now. I took SO MANY photos! Here’s a little sampling of what we did…

As soon as I met this lovely family I couldn’t get over how stylish and GORGEOUS they were. Am I right?! And little did they know, their outfits were perfectly suited to match the colours in bloom at the Ornamental Gardens on the day of the session. If there’s one truly memorable thing about this lovely family though it was their love of laughter. There was rarely a quiet moment and that made for some of the best interactions. When clients know how to laugh, joke and have a great time, they can always expect the best photos!
A big thanks to the E family for having me out this past summer to capture these images! Needless to say, I had a blast and I hope we can do it again in the future!

I have tons of past family sessions to blog and loads more upcoming fall family sessions! Not sure if I’ll have the opportunity to blog everything…but I’m definitely hoping to catch you up on at least a few of my favourites so you don’t think that I abandoned this space entirely! 🙂
Oh how I enjoyed this family’s session at Petrie Island in Orleans. I love photographing families with kids of all ages…but I have to admit that I am always a teensy bit excited when I have the opportunity to photograph teen and adult kids. A big reason is simply the ease of working with subjects who are old enough to take instructions 😉 The second, and maybe more important, is knowing that a family has taken the time to document themselves at this stage. It’s so common to want to do these things when your kids are small. But as the years go by people get busy, kids go off to college etc. and not as much attention is paid to things like family portraits. It’s so nice to see folks slowing down and taking the time to capture these moments before everyone heads off in their own new directions.
The S family’s session was tons of fun and the resulting images really captured the laid back, care-free dynamic they have. Thanks so much for having me out to capture these for you, guys!
