Since I told you all that I wanted to be, ahem, someone who people actually PAY to take pictures of their family (i.e. a Newborn and Family Lifestyle Photographer) I thought it would be nice to show a few of the photos I took over the holidays.
I’m still working and learning but in the meantime I am starting to do reduced-rate photo shoots for friends, family and the willing public in order to hone my skills. It’s pretty darn exciting.
I’d love to hear what you guys think (please be constructive and polite!) I’d also love to hear if you have ever considered have more of a lifestyle photo shoot done (i.e. no real portrait poses). Also, if you are interested in a reduced rate session please contact me. These will only be in limited quantity.
As I process the photo shoots I’ve done I’ll put them on a special page on the blog so you can get an idea of my style.
Guys, these holidays were some of my best EVER. It was SO nice to have the whole family home. We really got to spend some great time with each other and it was so fun to see the kids play together. It was also pretty fun to spend time with our kids and play.
We made gingerbread houses (using this tutorial), opened advent calendars, visited a museum (on the blog soon), built legos, read books, visited friends, ate burgers, visited a Christmas village, went for brunch and in general totally enjoyed ourselves.
At the beginning of the week I could see that meals (especially lunches) were going to be a struggle so I sat EVERYONE down and asked for their input. This meant that some nights we had hot dogs (guess who that was) but everyone was allowed their say. And arranging it all meant no panics when the grocery stores were closed or when I was tired and didn’t feel like cooking (tip: put meals OTHER people can cook on the rotation).
And it finally snowed. And boy did it EVER snow. Alex HATED his winter boots (hello Stonz) so after a quick pull in the sled we were back inside but Bastien was in his glory. I’m a little sad the stroller daycare run won’t be as easy, but hey, we live in Canada and it’s inevitable so bring on winter!
How were your holidays? I’d love to hear.
Wishing you the very best for 2016!
I’d love to try these local beauty products. (And Skog means Forest in Danish – funny how these things come back to me! And it’s pronounce ‘Sko’ unless it’s not meant to be Danish at all….!)
A taste of summer (and can I just say Montreal continues to amaze me with all our great stuff!)
This shower curtain…
I think EVERYONE should own one of these (but are they strong enough for my dads set of 300 keys he carries around?! that is the question…)
This recipe is on the must-try list.
