I don’t photographed families with older children or teenagers very often. It’s fun to not have to make fart noises or silly faces to get uncooperative toddlers to smile. Although, I am so used to doing that I often forget what to do with teenagers. So I probably reverted back to the tried and true fart noises. Ha ha! My family photo session with the Benjamin family was north of Edmonton at Cardiff Park. I’d never been before and didn’t have an opportunity to scout it out before hand. However it was a beautiful natural area with ponds, walking trails and gorgeous summer light. A perfect family photo session for those who want to trvel a bit north of Edmonton.
I’m so looking forward to when the flowers are blooming again in Edmonton! It’s such a short season. The last two years, the crab apple blossoms lasted for less than a week. Luckily the lilac trees hang on a bit longer. For Lillian’s 6 month session we met up in a random dirt parking lot in the Edmonton river valley that had a random, but very large, lilac bush. It was actually fairly chilly with a rare east wind off the North Saskatchewan River, but Lillian gave me some smiles while mom and dad were snuggling her. She was less impressed to be by herself. Or in a basket. She is still a sweetie with those big blue eyes. And just a refresher, here is her newborn session.
Brace yourselves — this is a big post! I loved this session. I loved photographing 8 day old Anastasia. She is one of the most beautiful newborns I have met, with those lips and her dark wavy hair. Love her! It was so fun to photograph her family again. I last saw them when mom was pregnant and we had a sunny maternity session at the Muttart Conservatory. Little Leo was such a good little 2 year old and posed and listened so well. The photos of him hugging the yellow bucket with Anastasia inside, remain my favorite sibling photos I have ever taken. The yellow bucket was special because Leo also posed in it during his newborn session. However, I didn’t know if Ana would fit as she was a lot chubbier than Leo. But she did and she looked so sweet.
