Almost a year ago I was contacted by a woman who was friends with one of my clients and had seen my work. She had just had her second child and was inquiring about a shoot. She wanted to book a family shoot and a 1st birthday session for her newest little sweet pea (yes, she certainly was on the ball with booking!). Her second request was if we could do all of the shooting in one day as they would be travelling in from out of town to see me!
Next thing I know, the year has gone by and it is time to meet this sweet family. Initially when they booked, I had assumed they were originally from Windsor or had family here. It wasn’t until we met that I was told they did not, they had come to Windsor solely for me to photograph their family! The grandparents even drove from another city to be part of it too! Wow, I felt a little emotional after learning that- it was truly an incredible feeling. These two parents (and grandparents) were so wonderful and sweet and kind. And the children! Oh, the children, they stole my heart. Big brother was just too cute for words and the birthday girl had the most adorable dimple ever!
I was a little worried that 2 shoots for these 2 little ones would be too much for them, especially little Miss M, but I was wrong. They were amazing and happy and smiley (and silly) for the whole thing!
After the family shots, we went back to the studio for Miss M’s 1st Birthday Cake Smash and Clean Up shoot. I laughed the entire time! And when I started going through the photos to edit, I was laughing again. Miss M had the greatest expressions and reactions!
To say that I was honoured that a family with two small children would make a trip down the 401 to see me is an understatement. They are truly a beautiful family and I am so happy I had the pleasure of meeting them and capturing these moments for them.
