It was not looking good for this session. After being rained out last time, the weather reports for the day we were supposed to get together were grim. Ashleen, being a brave mom, voted that we just go for it. It went from heavy duty pouring to the rain stopping ....five minutes before I arrived. I knew after our LAST TIME together, that I couldn't wait to be with this family again. They are so easy going and fun and totally get documenting their family "as is". I love it when parents don't stress about the littles and just work with me to play around and try a bunch of stuff. Capturing the ages and stages is such a fun part of family lifestyle photography. The way Parker laughs at superhero talk (thanks to his mom for the tip about Flash!), the way Evie kept a death grip on her snack bag....it's where they are at right now. I love the way that they love each other.
Seriously, getting Parker to laugh was a piece of cake. What a funny little dude.
Evie warmed up as the morning went on....so long as the snacks were near :). She's a honey and at almost two, sure did like to get silly after she checked me out a bit.
Ah yes, the romantic years of parenting preschool children....
They take it all in stride and sneak in a kiss whenever they can.
Mum had just one request, this shot to show how little her littles are right now.
Tipping, tipping, tipping.....
Ashleen and Gord, your family is such a delight to photograph. Thanks again for braving the elements with me. I hope these photos will always be a reminder to you of this stage of your family's life.
