I have said it before and I will say it again, I love capturing families! This family session was a very special session as Irania’s mother, two sisters and nephew were visiting Irania and her fiancé Niki from Mexico. The love that they all have for each other radiates through the images below and is simply contagious.
They trusted me to find the perfect location and I was excited that they were willing to do a beach session. Little did they know that we would walk along the beach and up a set of man made dirt stairs so we could lookout over Lake Ontario. It was worth the hike up the hill though because the lighting was gorgeous.
As usual, when there are kids involved in my sessions, the focus is on making things fun for them, and never forcing them to sit still or do something that doesn’t make them happy. Leo loved tossing rocks into the lake, walking the shore line, and I am pretty sure he was the lead on getting the whole family to jump in a few photos as well. Our session ended at the play ground but a trip to Canada isn’t complete without a photo with Canadian Geese.
I loved spending time with this family, and freezing some moments in time for them. They will have these images forever to look back on and remember the time they were all together in Ontario! It was a beautiful evening.
