This cheerful bunch planned this session as gift to Grandma! Kind of a great idea, isn’t it? What Grandmother wouldn’t love a set of beautiful images of her grand kids – one of her greatest sources of joy! Grandma was just beaming with pride and adoration through most of this session, on and off camera. I’m certain these family photos will be something that all members of the family will treasure for years to come.
As an Ottawa area family photographer I consider myself so fortunate to interact with so many beautiful and and unique new families so regularly. If you are thinking about booking your own family photos as a gift to yourself or for a loved one, I’d love to hear from you! Together we can plan a photo session that will meet your needs and be laid back and enjoyable for all involved.
It’s been forever since I took my kids out for photos, but after spending the last few weeks photographing so many other families I was inspired by the gorgeous fall colour this year and decided that it was finally time! Petrie Island in Orleans is only minutes from our front door and is one of my favourite places in the area to do family photos. So it made sense to start there. Needless to say, I’m glad I did. The colours were gorgeous, that warm fall evening light was gorgeous…and I suppose my models were pretty okay to look at too… 😉
I’m so, so glad I took the time to do this with them this year. With the chaos of everyday life it’s so easy to let the years pass without stopping to document where and who they are in their lives now. I took SO MANY photos! Here’s a little sampling of what we did…
If you are interested in family photos with Ottawa’s Danielle Lynn Photography, I’d love to hear from you! The gorgeous fall colours will soon be gone so book today to secure your date! 🙂
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!
