Kimberly and her family invited me out to their house in the country to capture some portraits of everyone and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to do so. The drive out there was beautiful and once I pulled into the driveway and saw the house I was amazed how beautiful it was too! I knocked on the door and was greeted by Kimberly. Everyone was just finishing up getting ready so I used those few minutes to scope out the property and look for interesting backdrops which was definitely very easy to come by.
Right off the bat I was greeted by Teddy, their dog, and he gave a personal guided tour with a stick in his mouth. As I checked out the property I played with him a bit and got some good initial photos. I could photograph animals all day if I had the chance, so I had a blast capturing photos of him throughout the session.
Once everyone made their way outside, we headed to the backyard amongst the tall trees. Did I mention how beautiful Kimberly’s property was yet? They were such a fun family to photograph. I always use a sense of humour when I take photos and they were all right on point with me. It made for a super relaxed atmosphere. We spent most of the time in the backyard but I did want to make sure I got some photos in front of the wood shed as well. It had a lot of character and some of my favourite photos came from that area. One of them being Kimberly posing with Teddy.
Lastly, we got one last group photo on the deck overlooking the backyard. After that I was done! It was such a fun session and I love going to families homes and spending some time getting to know them and hopefully capturing some memories that will last them the rest of their lives.
