An Apple A Day // Fall Mini Sessions

I love fall mini sessions. If Christmas was in the fall it would be my favourite season ever but because Christmas is in the winter, I’m torn. Anyway, I love hosting fall mini sessions especially because here in Ontario we have (in my totally unbiased opinions) THE best orchards ever. If you don’t believe me just take a look below!

I am new to the area of Kitchener-Waterloo so it made sense to host some mini session for my first fall as a photographer here! I had so much fun with these families, my face hurt from laughing and smiling so much! I can’t wait to do them again next year!

I was able to shoot at Martin’s Family Farm and it was the perfect locations for fall pictures. As much as I love the changing leaves, nothing screams fall to me like an apple orchard. How awesome are those red apples on these trees? It was absolutely perfect. It was a chilly day sometimes sunny, sometimes cloudy but it all worked out so well.

After such a successful season and a lot of happy families, I can’t wait to have these mini sessions again next year!

At Home Photography // The Nabrotzkys

Life with a newborn can be a big adjustment. Life with multiple kids and a newborn is chaotic. This beautiful family just brought their third baby girl home from the hospital and they are living in new territory now. That third baby is a game changer! 

They knew they wanted pictures but the thought of actually getting everyone dressed and happy and out of the house for some on location pictures seemed a little daunting. I suggested we do a lifestyle session in their own home to make it easier and more comfortable for everyone. They didn't need to worry about packing snacks, changes of clothes, diapers, soothers, or drinks. I just came over to their house in the morning and after a quick nursing session we were able to begin. 

Letting the girls show me around their house and having them help me with the baby and with taking the pictures involved them in a fun way so they didn't feel too much like they were being asked to sit still and smile the whole time. We were able to go into the nursery and play in the living room and take as many potty and nursing breaks as necessary!

It was so much fun to watch the little girls just love their baby sister. Seeing Dad play with his daughters just melted my heart. Watching mom care for her three babies and giving them each the attention they needed is why I love what I do. Family photography, especially in home lifestyle sessions, brings me into your world and gives me a glimpse of your life and lets you cherish these moments forever!
