When Bob and I were recently shooting a wedding together, he mentioned that Jess’ 40th birthday was coming up (how could I forget! It’s a day before mine!) and he wanted to surprise her with a family shoot! The hardest part about being a photographer is that you rarely have any photos of yourself with family because you’re usually the one behind the camera. I was so excited when he asked me, I couldn’t wait for the day!
We met at the Glen Rouge Campground entrance of The Rouge Park in Pickering and set down the trail. It was the perfect day, despite the sun being very bright and hot, we had a canopy of trees providing us with shade to keep us out of the heat and nice lighting for our photos.
It was such a treat to spend the afternoon with these three, here are some of my favourites from our shoot.
Aren’t they just adorable? Gosh, I love what I do and I’m so lucky that I get to call this work. Thank you Bob, Jess and Dylan for letting me photograph your beautiful family! Happiest of birthdays Jess!
