For the second year in a row I had the pleasure of photographing Tobin, Kristi and Grace. Last year we used Centennial Park as the location. This year, however, we chose to use the Tree Farm just on the outskirts of Thunder Bay. I had recently visited this location and after seeing it for the first time I couldn’t wait to do a portrait session there. Especially around this time of year it’s absolutely perfect as the trees are changing colour and the leaves are falling.
Right off the bat I couldn’t believe how much bigger Grace got! She was off to the races as soon as she stepped out of the vehicle. I basically spend the next hour chasing her around and getting some really nice candid shots. She did settle down here and there to pose with her mom and dad which was great. She really was the perfect little model. The best part was that she had these boots on that squeaked so even though the tree farm was quite big, there was never any fear of losing her.
We got some nice photos in the high grass, there were some encounters with dogs, we checked out the creek area and the last part of the session ended with a whole lot of leaves being thrown around. Those were some of my favourite shots of the day. Thanks again to Toby, Kristi and Grace for letting me be part of an amazing day. I can’t wait to see how much bigger Grace gets next year!
