Best of 2016: Mini Sessions

Mini Session Photographer London Ontario

To get back into the swing of things after Christmas I thought I would start my series of blogs showing some of my favourite photos I captured in 2016.

 

2016 was a busy mini session photography year for me! The one thing I especially love about the mini sessions is regularly getting to see families faces as they update their photos on their walls and on their profile pictures. In the images below you will see examples of the mini session days with the themes- Valentine’s Day, Easter, Spring (both outside with the magnolia trees and inside from when we had freak late May snow), superheros and princesses, Thanksgiving/Fall/Halloween, Christmas (tree farm and in studio) as well as a few pet photography specific days and I also did business headshot mini sessions but those photographs will be shown in a few days when I post the blog for those portraits. For 2017 I plan on doing all of these mentioned in the below flyer for my mini session pass, the best value way of doing mini sessions with me throughout the year and only on sale until Jan 1st.

Adult Cake Smash London Ontario, Canada

Adult Cake Smash London Ontario, Canada

I was inspired to write this blog last week when I replied to a post on one of the local facebook buy and sell sites. The post was looking for a present for a 25 year old who has everything. You know what I can almost guarantee no-one you know has? An adult cake smash! It is the perfect present for 19th/21st/30th birthdays and everything in between and beyond. Imagine a 90yo cake smash, that would be adorable!

The story of these images goes that I was tagged by one of my clients in Shannon Squires Adult Cake Smash session and it happened to be just a bit over a week before my birthday. If you know me at all, you know that I am a huge cupcake fan (even going as far as to get a tattoo of one) so it goes without saying that her photos inspired me to quickly put together a cake smash of my own! The photographs were taken by my second photographer Clara, the cute (and delicious) cake was from Zandy Cakes, the Tutu from Little Pumpkin, 28th birthday shirt from Livy bean, Nails by Gelous Beauty Bar and I brought along the suitcases, cake stand and cupcake party hat (which was actually a present from my best friend from a few years back) from my prop collection.

So you’re thinking, that looks like so much fun! I want to do that for my next birthday! Awesome, treat yo self and lets book it now and you’ll have something fun to look forward to. Maybe you’re thinking you have a special friend or family member that you know would love it, lets set up a gift certificate for them! Sessions start at $125+hst and range up to $250+hst. The $250 package includes the cake, use of the custom outfit, 20 images of your choice and the 1 hour session- we can do some photos of you with your family, significant other or individual ones first (in regular clothes) and then capture the cake smash.

Best of 2015: Maternity Photography Sessions London Ontario

Wrap up of Erin Woodgate Photography’s best Maternity Photography Sessions London Ontario!

2015 brought more Maternity Photography Sessions London Ontario than I had done in previous years which I think had a big part to do with opening the studio space in September! It might also have something to do with my great value 1st year package which you can see below. To kick off the new year I thought I would put together a series of blogs showing some of my favourite photos I captured in 2015. You can catch up on the previous posts below-

For maternity sessions it is usually the choice between on location and in studio. If it is in studio the colours you are wearing will determine the background. From there I do a variety of shots of different angles and poses, incorporating any props you have brought with you or anything of mine that you would like to use. Most of my maternity sessions however are done on location where we work with the differing locations and wardrobe to get variety in the shots. This way you can do the photos in a location that means something to you like where your partner proposed, a special park or place you like to go together.

In the images below you will see a bunch of my favourite maternity images taken this year.

For newborn sessions it is typically in studio where I can control how warm the space is and many other factors that work together to make sure we can capture your newborn in the best way possible. Most of the time the sessions are done between 5-14 days old and I am very flexible (on weekdays especially) as to be able to book the session around when the baby will be the most sleepy. I work with any outfits or props you would like incorporated or if you have a certain idea, colour scheme or theme in mind I am more than happy to work with it. I have a large variety of props, outfits and accessories that we can include so there isn’t a need for you to go out and buy items that the baby will grow out of so quickly. We can include the whole family, other siblings, pets or even just Mom or Dad’s arms or hands. You can view many more newborn photography tips and tricks on my newborn page on my website.

Horse and Family Photography at Warwick Equestrian Development

Like I mentioned in a recent post, Horse Photography is something that I am really interested in, especially in the ‘part of the family’ sense that most people wouldn’t get a family photo taken with their horse. I was very pleased that fellow photographer Robin wanted me to take some shots of her and her gorgeous daughter at a gorgeous location just outside of London. For a limited time save the travel fee when you purchase any package.

Prom Photography London Ontario

Since moving to Canada I knew that Prom Photography was something I really wanted to get into. Jordan was the lucky winner of my ‘Once in a lifetime‘ prom package from the Prom Expo this year. The once in a lifetime package is like no other, capturing the memories of getting ready for prom, having a photo shoot with an unlimited number of friends and family followed by photos of driving off to the prom in your car or limousine (or truck in Jordan’s case!). You look forward to this day for many of your teenage years, planning what to wear and talking about it with your friends so much that why shouldn’t it be professionally captured for you? Contact me to see if your Prom date is still available for 2014/2015!

Dog and Cat photography London Ontario

In the lead up to Bark in the Park, I’ve decided to blog a few pet sessions done last year. This family session with their pets was so long ago now but I still really wanted to blog some shots from it! Often, cats get overlooked for being in family photos but I love when we can involve all pets in a session. We started at this lovely family’s home and then went to the nearby Pond Mills area to take some fun shots with Miley, the great dane.

Engagement Session at the Western Fair

I was so excited when Jenn and Heath agreed to do their engagement session with their kids at the Western Fair last year. It was fun playing with the cotton candy (or as us Aussies would say, fairy floss), going on a few rides and loosing track of time which was fine because we got some great nighttime shots!

Storybook Gardens engagement session

Andrea and Evan’s engagement fall session at storybook gardens was a lot of fun and we even managed to get lucky with the rain holding off the whole time we were there. Whenever it comes to choosing a location for an engagement session I always like to ask the couple if there are any places that mean a lot to them and they thought of storybook gardens because they have yearly passes and their son loves it there! I loved somewhere different and the fall colours really topped it off! Come back on Thursday for their butterfly conservatory wedding!
