Best of 2017: Family Photography

Family Photos London Ontario

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 2017. Below you will see some of my favourite images captured in 2017 from family sessions. The shots here are from a variety of family sessions- as part of a cake smash or other themed session, from extended family sessions, part of the 1st year package like 6 months, and from various mini sessions throughout the year. Looking back through these brought me some great memories and I’m hoping that the photos will do the same for the families for years to come. At the beginning of the year I asked to see how my clients have displayed photographs I have taken up in their homes and loved seeing so many families with the photographs I’ve taken up on their wall.

Best of 2017: Mini Sessions

London Ontario Mini Session Photographer

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 2017. Below you will see some of my favourite images captured in 2017 of Mini sessions. I have photographed so many families in 2017 in the various mini sessions that were held at various locations in London and at my studio. Mini sessions are 20 minute long sessions with a certain theme. They are held on dates and with props determined by the photographer. The upcoming Valentine’s Day mini sessions will be held at the Woodgate Photography studio in London Ontario.

Here are just a small sample of my fave shots from the year.

Documentary family photography London Ontario

Documentary Family Photography London Ontario

Last summer I had the pleasure of photographing this wonderful extended family. The farm that the family had always lived on had just sold and they had the opportunity to get the whole family together from places as far as LA, Halifax and Europe for one last big family summer bbq. We mixed candid and posed shots and felt like the story was told best in black and white so I hope you enjoy and think about having all of the natural moments captured the next time you get together with your family.

Bucket List 2017

I’m feeling more inspired than ever after attending the WPPI photography conference in Las Vegas this month and after watching countless online webinars. I’ve decided to put out into the universe my bucket list of shoots I want to do this year both here in London, Ontario and Internationally.

  1.  Photograph a wedding in the UK/Ireland/Europe. I really want to finish travelling in Europe and would love to photograph a wedding there. The off season here is Nov-April and so I’m hoping for anytime in there and I would be happy to work within budgets for the great couples/right locations. Here are some shots from the last wedding I photographed in that neck of the woods 5 years ago now! Wedding Photography Kent England-

    2. I would like to photograph more adult cake smashes. These sessions are perfect for 19th, 21st, 30th, 40th, 50th etc birthdays and if a 100yo was willing to do one I would be willing to do it for free! With these sessions you get to have some ‘regular portraits’ whether that be some business headshots, beauty shots, family, couple, pet etc, then we can come up with a theme based around your interests. It’s my 30th Birthday this year (you can see a pic below taken by my associate photographer Clara, on my 28th birthday) so to celebrate every adult cake smash will receive a free 8×10 cake smash collage print.

3. Along with wanting to finish travelling in Europe, I have never travelled to the west coast of Canada so would love to photograph a wedding or elopement out in all of the gorgeous landscapes I’ve only had the pleasure of seeing in photographs. Again, I would be happy to work make a custom package for a great couple 🙂

4. I would love to photograph a pregnant pin up shoot. I think the pin up sessions are so much fun and would love to capture a lovely pregnant mom with full vintage style pin up hair and makeup. I’d be more than happy to work with you on themes that would work to your tastes and click for more info on the Pin Up Photography London Ontario.

5. Engagement or family session for big fans of Harry Potter in Goderich this fall. I grew up reading Harry Potter and I know that there are some big Harry Potter fans here in South Western Ontario, so I would love to photograph a session in Goderich when the festival is on. I wasn’t able to get tickets but I will be on the lookout for them and I’m sure that some of the surrounding area will get into the spirit and will make for a great backdrop.

6. Engagement session at the Western Fair at sunset/night. Below you can see the last session I photographed there, 4 years ago this year! I would love to have some fun there again using my new equipment and knowledge.

7.  Forrats chocolate fondu engagement/ couple/ anniversary session. If you’re a chocoholic like me and haven’t had the pleasure of visiting Forrats in Byron yet, I highly recommend you do and I would love to capture some sweet love while you enjoy a date night (and maybe start across the road for some photographs at Springbank Park as well, for variety.)

8. London to London family/ engagement/ couple/ anniversary session. I have had this idea since moving to ‘Little London’ and would like to find the right people who either have a love of ‘Big London’ or are from England, or some kind of ties to both. The session would take us to a bunch of the London locations such as the double decker bus for Ice Cream and we might end up at a pub, with many other stops in between.

9. Trash the Prom or Bridesmaid Dress group session Do you and your friends still have your prom dresses laying around gathering dust? Maybe that has been awhile but you have bridesmaids dresses that you thought you might wear again but haven’t. I think it would make for such a fun shoot to get together with a bunch of your friends, maybe pamper yourself beforehand with getting hair and makeup, then have fun doing a friends shoot, but getting edgier with with in a fun location and possibly even trashing the dresses in the water, mud, snow or with paint or glitter!

10. Australia I would love to get home in Australian summer 2017/18 or 2018/19 so would love to book a wedding to photograph while I’m there with the exchange rate being right around even my rates are very affordable by Aussie standards.

Best of 2016: Family Photography

Family Photographer London Ontario

I really think that one of my biggest strengths in my business is getting natural smiles and capturing families how they would like to be displayed up on their walls for generations to come. I’m very happy that so many families chose me to capture them in 2016. These photographs were captured during the whole variety of family photography sessions- Mini sessions, maternity, Newborn, 6 month, birthdays, cake smashes, extended family sessions and good old regular family sessions. Some families I see multiple times a year, others every couple of years but it is always lovely to know that the photographs that capture what your family was like at that time were taken by me! This year I captured even more families at my studio, which is a great option and fall back to have when we have bad weather.

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 2016. You can catch up on the previous posts below-
