Fun with the F Family! {Peterborough Family Photographer}

Shawn and I spent a crazy fun morning with the F family at Beavermead Park recently. These guys had tons of energy and kept us laughing non stop.
We started with a few slightly more traditional family portraits:
This pose was spontaneously struck by Miss M, and two seconds later, Mr. N followed suit and made like his big sister.
I love all our clients, but when photographing families, I will admit to a soft spot for the young kids. They are so full of energy, and so much fun! I love coming up with ways to some fun images while still keeping their interest!

During this shoot we ran...

...played in the playground...
...did some very serious posing...
...practiced our flying...
...drew some self portraits...

...gave mom and dad some alone time...
...and gave me my foot shot! (Love it!)

F Family, thank you SO much for spending some time with us - it was great to meet you and we had a blast!

Erin & Mike are married! {Millbrook Wedding Photographer}

Some of you may remember Erin and Mike from their family shoot last year. We were honoured when they asked us back this year - to capture their wedding! The day was a beautiful and intimate affair, filled with lots of personal touches.
The ceremony took place in the pavillion by the Millbrook nature trails. Erin wore a beautiful custom made dress with a renaissance feel. Don't you just love Miss F's wings?
Mike and Erin wrote the ceremony themselves, and it was a perfect reflection of their relationship and values as a couple. I loved that there were special components for each of their kids.
I think this is one of my favourites! Erin is absolutely glowing and looking gorgeous, and Mike is all "that's right. She's with me."
.....and have you ever seen such an amazing cake! Erin is a culinary school graduate and made it herself. She does amazing work - we loved that each member of the family was featured at the bottom!
Finally - ring shot. Guarded by dragon style.

Erin and Mike - thank you so much for including us in your special day!
