This lovely Ottawa family has been coming to me for their photos for a few years now and it’s been so much fun to see how they’ve grown and changed in the time I’ve known them. The first session I did with them was when their daughter was just a tot. Since then they’ve added two more children to their brood and have moved to another country! It means so much to me that they would keep coming back to see me when they are home. Aside from being just genuinely nice people, their laid back style means more room for creativity for me so it’s always extra enjoyable!
One challenge after photographing a family so many times is that you start having to think extra hard about new and different location ideas that we haven’t done before! This time around, I figured now that their kids are a little older (and maybe slightly more wild!) something funky and unique like graffiti would add an element of fun to the photos. And boy was I right! I thought it was so funny that the kids immediately began posing in front of the wall as if they knew the drill. Watching them come up with their own poses was pretty hilarious and made for some really adorable moments. I will say – I do think these images captured the chaos and joys of being a young family of five quite well 😉
