Winter is quickly becoming my favourite time of year for portrait sessions. It’s hard not to like it when you get to spend an hour at the snowy tree farm with a family like Leshya’s. Here parents were visiting from out of town for a short while so we planned this session over a month ago to make sure we can get some portraits of everyone. Plus, Leshya is 8 months pregnant, so that’s another reason to get some photos as well. Oh, and it’s also Christmas Eve .. so why not right?
As I mentioned above, the weather was perfect and the conditions at the Tree Farm were amazing. Right off the bat I know Leshya and her family were going to be very fun to photograph. It ended up being even more fun then then I thought! Everyone had a great sense of humour and were willing and able to pretty much do anything I told them to. Plus, they had plenty of improvisations of their own. It was a good mix of canid and naturally posed photos.
I told Leshya, that if we ever do another session, that she has to bring her two dogs. Supposedly they are very energetic but I think I’m up for the task. We will have to see how it goes!
