THESE BOYS! They stole my heart from the moment I showed up. Although they are twins, their personalities couldn’t have been more different. One was a complete ham, willing to pose and smile on demand. The other was a little more shy and basically wanted nothing to do with me. It made for an interesting time to say the least! But I’m no rookie. I had many tricks up me sleeve to ensure cooperation and let’s just say that mom and dad weren’t disappointed with the results! 🙂
The location for this family photo session was right in the family’s own neighbourhood which was so perfect. Being an older neighbourhood, there were lots of mature, colourful trees that helped set the scene perfectly. It also helps with some kids to keep them in familiar surroundings as well. These boys were more than happy to show me their yard, the cool rocks they collected and the giant home-grown pumpkin that sat proudly on their front porch. In the end I’m so glad we went with this location. Nothing is more personalized than family portraits in your own neighbourhood!
Thanks so much ‘L Family’ for your hospitality and for asking me to photograph your beautiful family! I hope we have the opportunity to do this again in the future!

I have a confession. The title of this post is actually hilariously misleading. Like any time I photograph young children, I showed up to A and R’s photo session fully expecting to be met with some age-appropriate apprehension, shyness and a whole lot of running around on my part. But once we got going, these two boys were actually a real treat! Dare I say, some of the easiest kids this age that I’ve ever photographed! For some in the 5 and under age range, having their photo taken can really be a tough sell. And I get it. Adult or child, I don’t know too many people who actually enjoy having a stranger stick a giant lens in their face and then be expected to act natural! But these two totally rocked it out and made my job soooooo easy! I barely broke a sweat!
A big thanks to their lovely Grandma for having me out to do these photos in her beautiful back yard. I’m so glad the family is enjoying the photos and I hope we have the opportunity to do these again in the future!
If you are interested in having your own family or kids photographed by Danielle Lynn Photography, please get in touch! With fall officially here it’s prime time to get outside and capture some fun family moments in amongst those gorgeous colours!
Happy New Year!
As I’m sure you’ve noticed if you read my blog regularly, I’ve taken a bit of a break from blogging lately. This past fall was a typical one – busy! The sessions were happening much faster than I had time to get them blogged. Combine that with lots going on in my family life with kids starting back to school etc. and the result is a backlog of awesome family sessions that I have yet to share! I’m going to attempt to do so over the next couple of weeks so please bare with me! 🙂
This lovely family session has to be one of my favourites from 2013. The 4 of us met in Manotick and I had a ton of fun capturing them in the area around Watson’s Mill and down by the water. Being an east-ender with clients mostly opting for locations right in the city, it’s rare that I venture this far out for a session. I’m so glad these guys suggested it though! The town of Manotick is lovely, quaint and made the perfect backdrop for fall family photos.
A big thank you to the Ross Family for such a great time and for trusting me with your family photos this year! With a couple of boys as sweet, fun and well behaved as yours, I sincerely hope we have the opportunity to do this again in the future! 🙂
