a mini-lifestyle session with Maddie and Dave & Jenn... (and their pug Little Man)
I love informality... relaxed times, that sort of thing. I try to bring that vibe to my photo work, as much as I can. It's hard sometimes (weddings can be particularly busy), but on this holiday Monday, Dave & Jenn and Maddie (their 6 month old daughter) had all the time in the world. So we went slow, let Maddie do her thing and wound up with some pretty memorable shots.
Dave and Jenn included a few looks that reflect their lifestyle - Jenn's running shoes, Little Man, Dave's favourite board game and Maddie playing with some of their tennis gear. (i couldn't squeak the tennis shots, cute as they were, into the preview... sorry!). Adding Maddie to a pair of shoes or a table game somehow makes an instantly memorable photo... I love it.
The full session includes 80+ images... these are some of my favourites.
Then there was Little Man, the pug. He made it into so many shots that he almost generated enough material for his own session. Here are a few favourites featuring the (second) star of the show :)
and to settle a small disagreement on facebook... I believe this photo is a 'checkmate' face from Dave and an 'oh no!' from Maddie... but maybe you see it differently??
