Ottawa Family Photography :: Petrie Island Fun!

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!

If you are interested in booking your own family photo session with Danielle Lynn Photography, I’d love to hear from you! Spots are almost completely full for fall so now is the time!
