As many of you know, I am newer to the Sarnia area. I grew up in California and moved here in May 2009 after meeting an amazing Canadian boy.With living out in the country, and having 2 young children I have found it somewhat difficult to meet people not only for friendship purposes but for business as well. We all know how hard it is to get your name out there. I have been very fortunate to get some great exposure from 3 wonderful events. The Sarnia Baby Show, Mommy Market Sale in Petrolia and the Spring/ Summer Mom-to-Mom Show in Sarnia helped me to formally introduce my business. Michelle is just another wonderful mommy I have met in the process.
I know I say it all the time, but wow do I love my job!!!I had the absolute pleasure of photographing the Willemsvandyk family on a nice mild June evening… we braved the mosquitoes and I got some amazing shots! As you will see their family is stunning!!! Many times with small children you never know what your are going to get… whether it is a fussy child, one who refuses to look at the camera or the all too common child that will not sit still (because how many of us can actually say our child will sit in one place for more than 15 seconds! haha!). I actually welcome those type of sessions, because I find the harder the work, the greater the reward. I personally love the candid shots you get from a session with children… being in their element and letting them do their thing. You get photos that are reflective of their personalities…not mine!
All I have to say is look at those baby blues!!! Thank you so much Michelle and Jay for allowing me to photograph your beautiful family… I could not have asked for a better session with a 7, 2 1/2 and 7 month old!!!
Once again, can’t help but share some of my favorite images in black & white!
