My latest portrait session took place at yet another location that I had never photographed at before, Wild Goose Bay. Julie wanted some family portraits while they were all visiting here in Thunder Bay, and also because it was her parents 50th wedding anniversary. I of course jumped at the chance.
As soon as I arrived at their house right on Wild Goose Bay, I introduced myself to the family and quickly scouted out their beautiful property. It was the middle of the afternoon so the biggest challenge was working with sun, but as long as you have shade, you can come away with some great photos.
The side of the house was painted blue and completely in the shade so were off to the races. I was able to capture some extremely natural posed family photos along with some great candids of the kids, who were full of energy.
Even though it was sunny, that was no reason to hide from it, so we also took advantage of the gorgeous view of Lake Superior and the Sleeping Giant. It was such a fun session and I couldn't believe just how natural everyone was in front of the camera. Everyone also had their own ideas for certain photos which I always encourage.
Not only was it a beautiful location, it was an equally beautiful family which I felt honoured to capture.
