Sweet and Simple

Over the last few years we have enjoyed reacquainting ourselves with Krista and Wade, a past bride and groom of ours. It is always an honour for us to be invited back into the lives of our clients, particularly as married life settles into parenting. A couple of weeks ago I enjoyed a relaxing portrait session at their home: Not only were we able to catch up but I was able to coo and fuss over their newborn daughter, Cara. This session I decided to get back to sweet and simple: soft side lighting capturing the sweet and delicate lines of this newborn – no knitted hats, just her own soft peach fuzz. No props: just new daddy and new mommy holding her close and enjoying these early days. I love the last picture of Cara. It looks like she’s asking, “Are you up for this?”

The Fastest Portrait Session Ever

From the middle of somewhere (as in Bangkok, Thailand) to the middle of nowhere (as in Perth Road Village), Kevin, Colleen and their adorable children visited us mid-July. They braved a pending storm, swarms of deer flies and blood thirsty mosquitos for their photo shoot. (Harshaws might agree that this was tougher than surviving a military coup.) Steve and Kevin’s friendship dates waaay back to the early 80s when they were wee boys running amok in Grenadier Village in Kingston. Over the years, long conversations and much laughter over good food and wine has cultivated a treasured friendship of honesty. So if we’re being honest, see Colleen and Kevin’s faces at the end? I am pretty sure those were their “Take the damn photo, we’re getting eaten alive” faces. HAHA. Love you guys!
