Engagement – Kenny & Caroline

28 Oct

Kenny and Caroline recently got engaged. Since they didn’t really have any pictures of themselves together, and since they currently live in different provinces, when Caroline came for a visit they thought it a good idea to contact us to book a photo shoot. We thought it was a pretty good idea, too. We realized this relationship was pretty special after we met Kenny and Caroline and got to know each other over coffee while we waited for the rain to pass. Time was short as Caroline only had a day or two left before she left town, so putting the shoot off wasn’t the best option.

As we waited for the clouds to pass and the rain to stop, Kenny and Caroline told us some of their story. I can’t go into too much detail here, but I will tell you that when Kenny and Caroline first met, they had some communication issues. Caroline is French and didn’t  speak  English, and  Kenny didn’t speak any French. You can probably imagine the hilarity that could ( and did ) arise from such a situation, but the following was the best part. On their first date, they communicated through an English-French dictionary. How cool is that!?  It speaks volumes about  how they feel about each other, and it’s a great example of the rewards available to all of us when we overcome life’s little obstacles.

Meet Little James

18 Oct

This photo shoot was a while coming together due to conflicting schedules and weather, but it finally happened and are we ever happy it did! Little James was an absolute pleasure to work with. Curious and full of big happy grins,  James has got to be one of the most pleasant children we’ve ever met.

When we met at the park, Sara and Rick let James go and that was all there was to it. From the moment his feet hit the grass until the shoot was over, he was moving. Seriously, the first twenty-five minutes he literally didn’t stop running. Well, he’d take a tumble from time to time, but the moment he recovered he was off to the races again! It was amazing! But with two cameras we had him covered. And if we bothered him he didn’t show it. He treated us like a couple of extra playmates instead of two strangers poking cameras in his face. Really cool little guy.

Sara and Rick, thanks for sharing the day with us. We think you guys are pretty cool too. 🙂

Corbin Family

14 Oct

We finally had a “picture perfect” day for some photos, it was great to finally shoot some blue sky again!

Blue sky, beautiful trees, photogenic and fun sisters, an adorable dog – what else could you ask for in a family photo shoot! We meet the Corbin family at their home, went for a little stroll, and found some great locations along the way.These young ladies were a real pleasure to work with, totally fun and full of great ideas! And who can forget about adorable Nicki, I think toward the end of the shoot she totally caught on to what was going on began to enjoy the camera.

Many thanks to the Corbins for asking us to photography your family, we had a great time 🙂
