Just as I was finishing up one session at Centennial with Carol and her family, before I knew it, I was off to the Tree Farm to photograph Ashima and her family. As soon as I got there, Chase, her son, greeted me by walking up and saying hello! Shortly thereafter, he turned his attention to a dog in the vehicle beside me, but hey, I'll take what I can get.
That initial introduction summed up what the rest of this mini-session would be like. Fast paced, spontaneous, and basically me just trying to keep up with the little guy. Luckily, we were able to slow things down a bit here and there to capture some family portraits. But, the rest of the shots were simply candid and on the fly. It was easy to grab this kind of photos too, with all the trees and places to run around and hide.
One of my favourite photos is Chase standing off in the distance between the tall trees. Of course, he had to have his toy dump truck with him at all times! As our time almost came to an end I made sure to get a few photos of the happy couple as well as the soon to be newest addition to the family.
Even though we only had 30 minutes together, it was plenty of time to get some great genuine photos of the Ashima and her family in a beautiful setting. I'm so glad I got to be a part of it!
