Back in the good ol’ days… the high school days… I spent a lot of my Friday and Saturday nights hanging out at my best friend Rachael’s house. Usually just before dinner time, in would walk sweet Melissa, Rachael’s older brother Zach’s girlfriend. There’d always be lots of laughing, jokes, poking fun of each other (the Yeomans family is ALWAYS laughing and having a great time!) while we were all together… and once Zach + Melissa would head out of the house on their dates, I’m pretty sure I always turned to Rachael right away, “Hey! Do you think they’ll get married? They’re so fun and cute. Melissa’s so great. I bet they’ll get married. Maybe?!” … flash forward about 10+ years… they are married, with three adorable children, and they asked me to take this years’ family portraits! Their youngest had just turned one, so to commemorate that, we got together at their family farm one beautiful summer evening and snapped some shots of them hanging out! With young kids, it can be hard to get an “everyone smile!” shot, but you know what? These hanging out, lifestyle type sessions are true to life… “a day in the life of a young family”… and are some of my favourite sessions to do!
* I don’t know why my images are looking blurry and pixely on my blog… not sure what’s up. But rest-assured, your photos will be crisp + clear when you get them!
This little guy cracks my up. He’s such a sweet heart, and reminds me of my little brother at that age! Big blue eyes, white blonde hair… adorable :)
Zach + Melissa live on a farm, so we took full advantage of their beautiful acreage and tall grass!
“Hey Eli! Jump that ditch!”
Happy 1st birthday, Eloise!! Thanks for hanging out guys!
