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!

Sutter, 4 Months In and 4 Months Out

I met this mama last winter when she was only 4 months pregnant. We took advantage of the perfect winter day. But fast forward to one month ago, and baby Sutter is here and he is 4 months old! So, we met at the same park and took advantage of the now perfect autumn day. Such a wonderful sentimental collection. 

I feel like these pictures being in the same location show that every season is the perfect season for a photo session! Winter is just around the bend and it's a super dreamy time of year for pictures! This year they are predicting lots of fluffy white snow, so lets build some snowmen and have snowball fights and make beautiful pictures!
