Wilkesport Extended Family Session at Greenhill Gardens

Greenhill Gardens offers so many beautiful options for photos! This Wilkesport extended family session from last summer is no exception. Extended family sessions are always so much fun, especially with so many grand kids to wrangle! This time of year I get a lot of inquiries for gift certificates.

Extended family sessions are split between big group shots and some more relaxed shots of the grandkids. I try to work through a list of all of the family groups, and then let the kids play and gravitate toward each other for more lifestyle images too.

At Home Session

Adding a new baby to the mix is always an exciting time, especially for a toddler, but this proud big brother did great for their at home session. He was so excited to love on his new baby sister and show me around their cute little play space. I have a soft spot in my heart for dad’s who love on their boys, and this dad was not afraid to give his little man hugs and kisses. That physical affection is so refreshing to see and I’m so thankful it is documented for this family.

Golden Hour Session

YOU GUYS. I cannot even with the grin, the chunk, the big brown eyes. This golden hour session with Eden and her lovely adults was so much fun. Photographing families who are legitimately happy to be in each other presence is so EASY!

Another easy-breezy session down our quiet country road. Go where the light it best, my friends. You don’t need a huge spectacular garden to get an interesting environment and good variety in your images. TRUST. This entire session was shot down the road from my house, on the road and in a tiny little patch of grass where the light is dreamy in the summer. When you’re happy to be around each other and willing to have some fun, the photos will be beautiful and bring you joy no matter what.

Simplicity is often key for family sessions. A blanket in the grass and some fun games and interaction allows for a huge variety in images.

If you are interested in your own golden hour session on our country road, get in touch today! Who knows, maybe you can even stay for a drink after 😉 Want to see more from this location? Check out little Johnny chilling in the same place for a golden hour session here.

In Home Family Session

I photograph a lot of people I already know. It’s a small town thing, I guess. But this family had moved to our area from Quebec, and my first time meeting them was when they invited me to do an in home family session with them last summer. They were so laid back, and my favourite part of the experience was knowing they truly valued the lifestyle images just as much as the posed.

They specifically wanted lots of images of them hanging out and doing the things they love like gardening and playing outside. They also included grandparents in the session, which is always a lovely idea!

We spent the morning hanging out, chatting about their editing company and how they came to Chatham-Kent, we played outside, laughed a lot, and I left there with a huge smile on my face. This was one of those sessions where I go home so grateful and excited about what I get to do.

Sunset Mini Session

I have never seen a baby with a bigger smile than this little dude. Just the happiest, easy going guy! Allison & Wayne came out to our place for a sunset mini session and it may have only been 20 minutes, but I’d say it was a success! I could have photographed that smile for hours!

Can you believe this session was completely shot just on my road? Trust your photographer’s people! Light is EVERYTHING!

Grad Session

When Kate’s mom (the sweetest ever) reached out about the possibility of a grad session for her daughter Kate before she headed off to University, I was so excited! Senior sessions are a HUGE thing in the US, but not so much in Canada. I have to say, what a wonderful time of life to celebrate with a photo session!

I had a blast chatting with Kate about her interests and her plans for the future. She was unbelievably kind, and mature, with a spark of whimsy. We explored a local park to focus on a few looks for Kate, and then finished with the whole family riverside. I am so glad Martha reached out for this type of session. Definitely something I hope to do more of in the future!

Chatham In Home Newborn

Thinking of scheduling a Chatham in home newborn session but wondering if it is right for you? “I don’t think my toddler will last for a full one hour in home session” is something I hear quite frequently. But the best part of an in-home session? THEY DON’T HAVE TO!

Kids need a break? Go play for a few minutes!

“I need a snack!” Let’s go grab one!

In home sessions offer so much variety, and I love how much personality toddlers will offer up in their own home. Everyone is comfortable and can take as many breaks as necessary and you get the added bonus of some true lifestyle images.

Now, this was not the case for this family. Big sister was a huge help and was having a great time in front of the camera. This cozy Chatham in home newborn session was an absolute delight! Here is a quick glimpse at our morning together.
