It’s truly a compliment when I am hired by people for their family photos every.single.year as well as their wedding!
I first met Ashley at The Cedar Kitchen in Tottenham soon after we first moved here. We became friends, and she hired me for her daughter’s one year photos in early 2016, and since then, I have had the privilege of watching her family change and grow over these past 8 years. Thank you Ashley and Rob for always thinking of me first, and trusting me with these special memories. When we hit our ’10 year anniversary’, I’ll do a collage of the kids through the years!
Although Ashley and Rob have moved from the area, we happily meet up somewhere in between their new home and mine. This year, it was at the Guelph Arboretum, which is one of my favourite locations because of the tall grass, shady areas and something new to see at every turn. The kids all gave me a big hug when they arrived and listened to all my instructions, some of which I don’t think I actually gave! Regardless, we captured beautiful images for their family to cherish.
My favourite memory from this portrait session was when their oldest said “I don’t like family photos”.
Ya, ok kid. It looks like you had fun to me!
Thank you, Ashley and Rob, for another fabulous year! I look forward to seeing you again in 2024 and seeing how much the kids have grown! Will your youngest son still have those cute curls? I sure hope so!
