I spent an afternoon with the Thompson Family in Victoria Park
This was an epic gathering. Graham and Melissa Thompson had flown in from their home near Calgary for a visit with Graham's mom and sister and his sister's family. So we had Grandma, plus two couples with three kids apiece. It made for a wonderfully chaotic time playing, running, tossing leaves and laughing at all the antics.
Here are some of my favourite shots from the day:
Grandma was right in on all the action... I love this shot of her and all the kids putting on their best crazy faces!
I took a visit out to see Heidi, Dave and Levi at their family property...
... and it was a perfect fall day. The sun was out, the air was pleasant and the leaves were a mash of stunning reds and oranges. We took a walk around Dave's parents' place and got great photos all the way through - in the yard, in the forest and at the family cabin at the back of the property.
The little man was a champ the whole time! He gave the camera one great look after another.
Here's some of the best of the day:
Casual Family Photography in Kitchener...
I've posted a few shots from this session already on Facebook, but I wanted to share a few more.
Mike and Eline's place was awash in bright summer sun when I arrived mid-morning. They had some very neat highbacked chairs that we used for part of the shoot. Though there were lots of great shots inside and out, a number of my favourites came on the chair. So without further ado...
This was a nice casual shoot at home and at the park down the road... we managed to catch Zoe along with mom and dad doing some of everyone's favourite things - playing at the park, on the swings, some family reading time and listening to U2!
