it's fun to do mommy and daughter stuff
A late afternoon photoshoot with a backdrop of sunflowers in a field is the perfect setting for this mother and daughter time together.
Beautifully coordinated wardrobe
Just look at how momma coordinated her and her daughter's dresses. I just love the way the colours pick up the green of the sunflower leaves, while leaving the yellow of the sunflowers to be the opposite of the chosen colours, giving them more of an eye catching enhancement to the photos.
all our clients are welcome to pick some flowers
We were stunned to find a monarch butterfly on one of the sunflowers. What a great find (although he/she didn't stay long). This made for such a great photo!
Props are great to bring to a photoshoot and this hat Lila wore was just perfect.
a beautiful sunflower patch in full bloom
We are so lucky to have the space on our property to grow these majestic and beautiful flowers. I've always loved sunflowers and they are pretty easy to grow. It's such a treat to see the kids (and the parents) faces when they look up at these enormous beasts! It must be such a sight when you are a little one only 3 feet tall.
sunflowers are so majestic
Sunflowers make for a natural background for any type of photography. Baby photos, of course, look amazing among them.
And, of course, families are so cute in the sunflower patch as well.
a lower sun angle is perfect
We do all our sunflower sessions in the early evening, so there is a flat, soft natural light.
Peacock chair and sunflowers
Peacock chairs and sunflowers just seem to go together so perfectly!
family fun with siblings and cousins at cobourg beach
The Moss family contacted us as they were looking for a local Cobourg Northumberland Photographer would could accommodate them at Cobourg Beach on a weekday. That was the only time all of them would be together as they come from various parts of the province and from the United States as well.
So we met up at Cobourg Beach to let the kids have fun in a natural environment while the adults chatted and we got organized into groups. The most important photo for this grandma Nana was one with all her grandkids!
The littles were good with posing, but only for a short time. So I like to let them play and be themselves, with only a little bit of prompting. These are the famous action or candid photos that photographers use to capture kids being kids!
Part of photographing a large group is breaking them down into smaller units, so individual families can get photos together as well.
Let's not forget the matriarchs of the family, who deserve some special photos just for them.
The earlier start to the mid-week day meant that Cobourg Beach was not that busy, so there was lots of choices for photos.
Lorraine gave michael a special surprise!
When Lorraine married Michael 50 years ago, she chose her dress with great care and love, knowing that she will be wearing it once. BUT, 50 years later, on her 50th Wedding Anniversary, she surprised everyone (especially Michael) by wearing it again for their big celebration! Other than me, their photographer, no one knew her plan! She kept it a secret. I bet she was just bursting to show everyone!
Just look how beautiful she is.
Her daughters helped do up the buttons.
A big family celebration at a restaurant
After a limo ride to the restaurant, they all enjoyed a beautiful meal. And Lorraine wore the dress all evening.
congratulation lorraine and michael
Wishing you many more years of a happy marriage!
