I hope you are enjoying this warm streak we are getting right now! It feels like summer finally decided to stop by, but I was getting so excited for fall! But, I will not complain because the warmth is nice!
A couple weekends ago, I had the honour and pleasure of capturing Alisha and Mitch's beautiful little family for a summer lifestyle session! I was connected with Alisha and her kiddies at Christmas when I did a family session for her sister and brother-in-law and their adorable 5-month-old and then Alisha decided to also do a family session with us. We did it in their childhood home just before it was sold so great memories in that house and we got to capture some that would last a lifetime in photographs.
When Alisha connected with me about doing a summer session and including her boyfriend, Mitch. I was overjoyed to capture their beautifully blended family. To watch how they all connected, how Mitch was gentle and caring with the kids and just how as a family they were funny and adorable, made this session an absolute joy. Minus the pesky mosquitos that were unrelenting!
I have to say that I love family photography. Life gets busy and I love that for just an hour or two that I get to spend with your family, I get to capture little moments of complete joy and happiness. The moments that when you put it up on the walls of your home, you can glance at on your busy days and just know that you are doing something right to have such amazing kids. It holds still in the craziness of life and tells you that you are an amazing mum or dad! I just love that I get to capture one moment out of a million where your kids just wrap you around their little finger and make your heart sore when they whisper I love you in your ear just before bed after that long, hair-pulling day!
So I encourage all of your parents out there, you are doing an amazing job! I am so proud of you all. To raise children is your hardest job yet, but your most rewarding one! Here is to cherish the moments and holding onto the joy they bring in all the in-betweens of life!
Have an amazing Sunday, everyone!
I look forward to working with you soon to capture your family story and helping you put those memories on your wall!
