The Whole Fam Jam

I love when the whole family comes together. I love capturing everyone’s personality in these big group pictures. Of course that’s challenging to get in one shot, but we always get it. Sometimes families come to the session just hoping we get that one shot because it usually seems a little chaotic since there’s lots of people. But I embrace the children running around wild and free because I’m the type of photographer who follows the children’s lead. I truly think the most important thing with a session that includes children is keeping them happy. If you don’t make the children’s happiness the priority, it can lead to a domino effect of unhappy people and forced smiles. We don’t ever want that. So, we follow the children’s lead, and sometimes they sit calmly for that picture perfect shot and sometimes they jump around which creates images that are so full of love and life. Realistically, photoshoots are supposed to fun, and not something to dread. I know some photographers won’t even photograph extended families because the fact that they are challenging, but I welcome the whole fam jam, and to make things easy, I now have a package called “The Whole Fam Jam” for these very sessions. So get that family together and lets make magic!

This post is featuring some of my favourite shots from these two family sessions. Two wonderful families that I shot on the same weekend. One in the West End and one in the East End. Scroll down and take a peek!

The People In Your Neighbourhood

For the past few years I have donated Spring mini sessions to two of our local schools during their fun fairs as auction prizes to raise money for the schools. I love doing this! I love meeting new families in my community and then seeing them regularly in the neighborhood. And I love being able to donate to our schools because we aaaall know that they are underfunded and are always in need of something. So next time you see that your local school is hosting an event open to everyone, go and support them, even if you don't have kids that go there because the people in your neighborhood impact your life, and your community. Support them!

I'm really looking forward to meeting the winners of this years auctions! Scroll down to see last years winners!
