When we arrived at the bluffs for this session, seriously every parking spot was full. We luckily managed to find what seemed to be the last two parking spots left! I was starting to get nervous because of how busy it was. “Will there be people in the background of all their images?”, “Am I going to have to spend hours and hours photoshopping people out of the background?”, “We didn’t seriously just drive 3 hours to take photos on what seemed to be the busiest day of the season!”. These were all thoughts that went through my head, but I knew no matter what, we were doing them. We had just drove 3 hours to shoot at this location, and whatever we had to do, we would do it! Haha
Luckily, the part of the bluffs we walked to wasn’t THAT Busy. There definitely were people around, so we just had to shoot in a small section to avoid sunbathers, and inflatable row boats in the background.
In the end, I didn’t have to photoshop a single person out of the back ground, and I’m IN LOVE with the photos!
Wow, it has been a while. I am a little embarrassed that it took me this long to publish a blog post, but what can ya do?
I had a baby in February, and took a few months off. I slowly got back into doing families, newborns, and engagements in May, and started my wedding season in July. It was a wonderfully slow start of the year for me, and was so nice to have that time to just heal, rest and adjust to life with two kids.
This session took place on a cold winter morning. I just remember coming into their beautiful home, and it feeling so warm and cozy. This was a very last minute session. Alanna contacted me 2 weeks before my due date to ask if I could squeeze them in before my mat leave. I told her as long as I didn’t have the baby, I was good to go. It was a good distraction from waiting for the baby to arrive. 🙂
This has to be one of my favourite sessions to date. I love love LOVE something about photographing families in their homes. <3
