My associates Janette and Sarah photographed Joanna and Alain’s wedding many years ago. Now, they have two little girls and I was honoured to be able to do their family portraits this fall. We did them at James Gardens, which has become one of my favourite locations recently, since it has so many great natural backgrounds, fantastic light and it has not been too crowded. This photo session also involved Joanna’s brother’s family and her parents. I love when families get organized and get together for family portrait sessions, since it is really nice to have photos with grandparents and cousins in addition to siblings and parents.
These are all the grandchildren.
This is the entire extended family. Family portraits look so much better when everyone wears similar colours.
Armstrong family on the left and Miron family on the right. I love it when babies laugh for photos!
Looks like these sisters will grow up to be fantastic friends. The baby was always smiling at her big sister.
We got the little one engaged by having her play with leaves. It was her first time doing that and once she got the hang of throwing them in the air, she had a great time!
Another photo with the whole family.
We saw an ice cream truck before the photo session began and they were promised treats afterwards if it was still there and they cooperated.
She tried to get the baby to taste the slushie, but the baby was not interested at all, (which is of course, probably a good thing)!
Thanks for having me photograph your beautiful family, Joanna and Alain! It was really great meeting everyone and seeing many of you again.
Thank you so much for taking such wonderful pictures. It was so hard to decide which ones to get!
Thanks, Joanna! Thanks also for the nice comment (and for leaving one :-).
Danielle, what a truly wonderful day we all had at James Gardens!
The weather was glorious, the sites you chose as backdrops were perfect and there were (almost) no meltdowns. What more could you ask?
The pictures you took were all so great that it was VERY hard to whittle them down to a reasonable number. If I had purchased any more, I could have papered a wall!
Thank you for truly memorable keepsakes.
Awww, thank you so much, Susan! It was a perfect session and I know I did my job right if you had a hard time narrowing down the photos! I hope we can do it again, one day!
