I had the absolute priviledge and honour to work with this beautiful family for the third time as they prepare to welcome twins into the world this fall. Melissa, Brandon, and Jade are always so much fun to work with and I think you will see why in the pictures – lots of smiles, laughs and kisses.
When I asked Melissa about this photoshoot she said her goal was to capture her pregnancy because she did not really do it when she was pregnant with Jade. So, we were able to get lots of beautiful maternity shots, as well as a boat load of family shots.
It was a very hot day in July and even though we waited until later in the day, we felt we had to move quickly to avoid being out in the heat for too long. We started off at the end of the trail beside the water where we could take advantage of the best setting for pictures.
Jade was shy for maybe the first 30 seconds and then was very much at ease with being in all the pictures. One of the more exciting things about this location were all the bunnies we saw along the way. Jade was a fan.
We spent about 40 minutes slowly making our way back to the parking lot along the Tooley Mills Trail. We stopped to look at rabbits, bugs, flowers and at one point, rested on the bench.
One of my favourite things about being a photographer is being able to build long lasting relationships with my clients and journey with them as they encounter different milestones in life. Thank you so much Melissa, Brandon, and Jade for trusting me to help capture your family’s journey. I can’t wait to meet the twins!!
