Oh, do I have a blog post for you today! I swear, I thought I’d shared these sessions when they happened (ages ago now!) But it appears I did not! I’ve got to admit, I’m feeling a little sentimental looking through all of these sessions that I haven’t shared yet. I’m very quickly realizing that some of the best friendships I’ve stumbled across over the years first began as clients. These fine folks are a perfect example of that!
Many years ago, before they were even married (when I was still offering wedding photography… I no longer do), I was contacted by a potential client who wanted to “try me out” before committing to hiring me for something as important as a wedding day. I met up with them not long later for a family session, and the rest is history! I’ve since photographed pretty much every major life event for these guys, and in the process, my family has fallen in love with their family. 😛
So today, as I contemplate the fact that in 29 more days we will be moving to Callander, I would like to say THANK YOU to this family for their years of loyalty to my business and valued friendship to my family. Here is Everley’s story!
Back in the Fall of 2017, I was entrusted with a little envelope that held the secret that every parent is usually DYING to find out (whether baby is a boy or a girl!) Mama dropped the envelope off to me and I set to work, cutting out thousands of little pink (and blue, to fool them when I showed them the bags) pieces of confetti, which I mixed with sparkles for a fun reveal. The absolute BEST part about this gender reveal was Spencer’s reaction to finding out he was having ANOTHER baby sister!
A few months later, I was honoured to capture some of my favourite maternity images of all time for this family! By then, Spencer was starting to come around to the idea that he was going to have another baby sister…
By the time this little gal arrived, I was about a week or two away from moving out of our old home and into our current home (I know, I know, I move a lot…I promise this move is the LAST move for a long while!) Anyhow, because my studio was all packed up in boxes, I decided to pack up what I could and head on over to them for an in-home session, which turned out to be a mish-mash of my usual studio style, infused with some lifestyle elements using their home as a backdrop. I loved how it turned out! And also, check out how SMITTEN Spencer was with his brand new baby sister! My heart melted!
Before we all knew it, time (as it does) flew right on by and we were planning for Everley’s first birthday portraits! Her parents requested lavender and teal on dark grey and I LOOOVED how it turned out! Anyhow, I’ve mentioned a few times this week, but I will again for anyone who missed it… I am relocating to Callander, Ontario, as of May 30, 2019. I will be accepting bookings in the North Bay/Callander area as of June, 2019. If you’re in the Barrie area and are interested in booking an in-studio session (outdoor evening sessions for May are now full) then please contact me using the contact page on this website or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, as I have availability up until May 23rd.
