the gratrix family

what is not to love about this family? they are super spunky, full of life, and always so photogenic. especially when the kids get to make their super silly faces at the end of the shoot (their favourite special treat for being extra good during the shoot!) needless to say we always get excited when we get an email from the gratrix family wanting to set up a family photosession! we'd had this location picked out for quite some time, always keeping it in the back of our minds for just the right session. i tend to have a very large soft spot for old, run down buildings. the metal siding, the tiny windows, the brick, the fading print- ahhh it is love. and i simply adore how the photos turned out. it helps that the subjects are so beautiful :) okay enough babbling - go check out the gratrix family!

 usually we end our shoots with the gratrix fam with a little silly face action. i could hardly hold the camera steady while Michael was making this face, i was laughing so hard. kids come up with the funniest stuff! he's got the wiggling eyebrows move perfected!

 this time however, the kids pulled out their scooters (and polly pockets) and released some energy in the parking lot before heading back home! it was so fun to photograph as the kids scooted around kyle and i in circles!
i am always awed by the way kyle sees something happening and captures it - i am so lucky to work with (and be married to!) such a talented guy!

the cameron van amelsvoort family

this family is so great- i've know them for what feels like my entire life. kirsten has been one of my closest friends & an honorary member of our childhood club (along with 4 other awesome gals!) since grade 4 when my family moved into this area. It has been so awesome to see this family grow and such a pleasure to capture on camera! check out just how great they are! {and beautiful- gosh!}

the lyon family

what could possibly be better then photographing my beautiful cousin and her gorg fam? taking the pictures at their family's condo at taboo resort in gravenhurst! i have so many wonderful childhood memories at this place- spending time with my cousins, learning to waterski, driving a jetski for the first time. beyond all that the area is simply beautiful. i always get a little giddy hitting the highway north into cottage country. i think kyle is quickly falling in love with the area as well- soon we'll both be so giddy we can't stand it, excited to pass on the giddiness to amelia! 

these pictures make us a little giddy too! here they are- the lyon family!
