*sigh* This is one of many, many sessions that have gone un-blogged in the past couple of months. Both because I’ve been too busy shooting and editing, but also because my desire to write just hasn’t been there. I felt it was high time I give myself a kick in the butt, dust things off over here though and start sharing some of what I’ve been up to though. Otherwise everyone will think I just up and disappeared!
This session, with my dear friend Natalie and her clan, was a long over-due chance to drive out to Merrickville and see what she and her family have been up to. With my in-laws moving out of the area, I find myself out in that area less and less. But when Nat said that she’d like to do her family photos in Merrickville, I was totally excited at the opportunity. For those who don’t know, Natalie and Tom are the proud owners of The Sugar Post. If you are ever out and about in that area, they are one place you MUST check out! Especially with Christmas just around the corner. Rumour has it, they’ll have some fantastic goodies in for the holidays! 😉
For this fun, laid-back session we had a couple of things we had hoped to achieve. I really wanted to capture their family in a relaxed, un-scripted, fun way. Then, like every family session, I was also aiming to get some great posed-yet-relaxed shots too. Not only did we manage to get both, but we were also able to incorporate some of the charming scenery of small town life which really adds to the overall feel, I think. The kids, as you may be able to tell, were also not short on energy either so I’m pretty sure their goof-ball personalities added a little something special to this session as well 😉
As always, it was a pleasure photographing your family Natalie and Tom! Thanks again for asking me to do this!
