We didn’t realise we were making memories, we were just having fun ~ Winnie the Pooh
We met at Lowville Park after looking at a few different spots for family photos. Shannon and Mark’s boys tumbled out of the family car all at once and a bit slowly at the same time…it took a little bit for GiGi, the littlest member of the brood to get going – there may have been a bit of a nap just before they got there. We met on a daylight savings time change day, we all felt a bit ‘behind.’ After a round of greetings, everyone helped to carry the bits and bobs that come with a family photo session. The boys, especially, wanted to help carry the stools, blankets, and even tripod (which was just about their size).
Our time together was spent enjoying the unexpected warmth of a late fall day. We chatted, bonded over a shared love of strong architectural lines, and laughed a lot about bubble butts. Zachary gave GQ a run for its money with some serious shots and you could see how proud he makes his Mom. His younger cousins clearly look up to him and it showed when they played a rousing game of leaf-tag/leaf-roll.
Paul and Marlene traveled from Guelph to join the family photos and there were smiles when we talked about their 48-years of marriage and love. They even trusted me when I asked them to lovingly gaze at each other.
It was a pleasure to meet all of you. I hope that your photos reflect the spirit and love I saw between you that day.
