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!
If you are interested in booking your own family photos with Ottawa Family Photographer, Danielle Lynn Photography, please get in touch today! As of now I am booking a few more fall family photo sessions and then we’ll be headed into fun winter family sessions!
What I loved so much about this session was that it was lifestyle all the way. What do I mean by “lifestyle”? Well…I gave the family a general direction on what to do, but for the most part, most of the action and interaction captured during our time together was them being themselves. When I shoot lifestyle sessions, my goal is to capture perfect imperfection. I love, love, love when a family is willing to take this approach with their family photos. It tells a story about who they are in their lives today and their relationships with one another. There’s nothing more real or awesome than that. Continue reading
Firstly, I must apologize! I’m soooo behind on my blogging! I’m hoping to get caught up with past sessions over the next few days/week though so be sure to check back for lots more family sessions!
What a super fun time it was at the Arboretum here in Ottawa with the Kirke family! What I thought was neat was that they had visited the Arboretum prior to getting together with me for their photos and the girls had pre-scouted the area for things that they loved. They knew where all of the nice spots were, including the trees perfect for climbing! Of course, they were MORE than eager to show me what they liked and in the case of Margaret (the youngest of the two) she was MORE than happy to show me exactly how she liked to pose. 😉 It was a lot of fun, and what made it even better was the addition of their 5 month old Goldendoodle named Hugo. Hugo is definitely up there with one of the most beautiful dogs I’ve ever photographed!
Thanks so much Kirke family for choosing me to capture the fun on this afternoon with the four of you and Hugo! I hope you guys enjoyed yourselves as much as I did and I sincerely hope we have the opportunity to work together again in the future!
