At the beginning of this month, I headed down the street to photograph some friends (who also happen to be our neighbours), Evan & Heidi, and their two adorable little kiddos.
Evan & Heidi decided they wanted to do a lifestyle session inside their home, which I loved for two reasons: One, it was FREEZING COLD outside (April is supposed to mean SPRING, come on, Canada!). Two, I absolutely LOVE the real life feel of a lifestyle session. To me, photography is meant to capture life as it happens and how it happens. While there is definitely some planning that occurs for lifestyle sessions, it's basically a sneak peek into the real lives of real people, and there are so many memories/traditions that are visually represented in the end result photographs.
Follow along for a small glimpse of this family's life together...
Heidi chose this time of year for their family photos, as it would be close to little M's first birthday, so of course we wanted to get some additional photographs of just him. Oh, and be sure to look at those amazing eyes!
There you have it - a day at home with Evan, Heidi, Ava, and Myles. I really hope you've enjoyed the sneak peek into their daily lives just as much as I enjoyed being a part of it for an hour.
I hope you'll continue to follow along with me on my journey of photography, pursuing my goal of visually documenting the simple, yet beautiful, pieces of life exactly as they happen.
Oh, and let me know if you're interested in having me come to your home for a photo session - I'd be honoured to have the responsibility of capturing your everyday life in camera!

P.S. Sorry (sort-of?) for all the black & white images... they just felt right for blogging about this session!!
