Today was probably my last fall photo shoot before the snow flies this year.  I think we caught the fall leaves just before they all fell to the ground.  We headed to a spot very special to this family who spent many summers out there.  The “boys”, truth be told are more men then boys, but really, to this mom they are her boys.  This shoot probably had to be one of my favorite to do.  The “boys”, clearly their mom’s apple of her eye, and dad’s pride and joy are really nice young men.  I can’t express how awesome it is to see a family so connected to each other and how nice it is that boys past their childhood come out for photos.

As I sat here editing the images, I kept reflecting on my family.  As the mother of a boy, I think I caught a glimpse into my family a few years in the future.  My son is almost three, and these “boys” are men, but I constantly had flashes ahead to when my son’s a young man, and hope that we will be as connected as this foursome are to each other.  I hope this is us when my boy is a young man.  
At the end of the session I chased the boys away to do a few images of their parents, clearly still very much in love after many years together.  How awesome to see that !  I’m partial to the images of them too, again…. hoping this will be me and my husband down the road.  
Enough rambling… here are the images…. I sincerely hope we’ve accomplished what you guys were hoping for !

We sure lucked out on weather for today’s family session !  I had a beautiful family of three, at my favorite time of day- nearing sunset.  The little man was such a sweetie- and so generous with his smiles !  I’ll answer two quick questions I know you will have once you see these pics.  1) yes, the fall colours really were that magical and  2) yes, this little man really is THAT absolutely adorably cute !  (ohh those blue eyes !!!)
Enjoy the preview !

 Seriously, this gorgeous little face is awesome
Modelling portfolio ?

Family photo shoots have to be one of my favorite types to do.  Maybe it’s because I’m a parent myself, but I always want to capture the love and emotion between parents and their children.  I’ve photographed this family before, and got one of my all time favorite shots of the little man and his dad.  It was an image that I thought just moved me and showed the strong connection between father and son.  This was the image.
Fast forward almost a year ahead.  I was privileged to shoot them again.  They are such a nice family, but it’s funny, I feel an intense need to please this dad with my images more then anyone else I’ve shot.  It’s totally pressure from within because like I said, they are the nicest family.  But I really want him to like these.  I think he’s the dad who will give me honest feedback, will tell me if I got it right or wrong- which I actually really appreciate from a learning perspective.  Hey, as a photographer I want my clients to love the images, and I appreciate them trusting me to capture their family.  So here are a few previews of tonight’s session.  Did I get it right Kev?  🙂

We threw a little outdoor party for the little man’s upcoming third birthday !  Ohh what fun it was !!
