You know those days where you laugh so much that your face hurts? Where you get to see the world through the eyes of a child for just a brief moment, and you leave with your heart a little lighter? Yeah, this was definitely one of those days. Being able to capture this Peterborough family was definitely a bright spot to my week! A big thank you goes out to Kaitlynn and Matt for asking me to photograph their beautiful family.
One of my favourite ways to photograph a family is having them do what they do best – interact with each other in a sincere, loving, way. Candid kid photos are where it’s at! To set the joie de vivre atmosphere, we went to a nearby park to play with flowers and sticks (obviously). Proud parents Kaitlynn and Matt let toddler Mason and baby Brooklyn do their thing, and shine for the camera. The results were pretty dang awesome, if I do say so myself.
One of my favourite memories of the day involved Mason; at one point, I was backing up, tripped and fell over (oops). Mason, ever the toddler, laughed his face off at my mishap. Naturally, this meant that the rest of the shoot involved me accidentally ‘falling’ in order to get a hilarious reaction from him. Ever the gentleman, at one point Mason came over to check and see if I was hurt. He even kissed my knee, and was so proud when I was miraculously healed!
Thank you so much to Mason for doctoring me back to health, thank you to Brooklyn for being so incredibly cute, and thank you to Kaitlynn and Matt for being so awesome and producing such amazing kids! I couldn’t have asked for a better day.
