Cet été, pendant notre croisade à photographier des mariages, (Sud-Est Ontarien, les Laurentides, Montréal et les Cantons-de-L’Est), nous avons eu la chance de photographier des familles. Toutefois, c’est à Lachine que l’on a photographié cette session de maternité à domicile. À la maison et dans la cours arrière, j’ai tenté de représenter en toute simplicité ce bedon tout rond servant de maison pour ce petit garçon dont la naissance est prévue pour la fin du mois.
Leur chien, aussi vieux que leur relation, aura bientôt un compagnon de jeu et les parents, je le souhaite, pourront regarder ces 2 lurons s’amuser.
We often spend our weekends in the country in Eastern Ontario: Ottawa, Perth, Brockville, in Gatineau or the Eastern Townships: Knowlton, Bromont, Brigham, Dunham, Sutton. However, having lived in Montreal for close to 15 years, it is nice to be invited back to photograph a wedding.
I met this couple in Ottawa in the Fall of 2013 and Abelle photographed their wedding back at the beginning of the Summer.
Monsieur, the groom, was welcoming, photogenic and open to any idea we threw at him. So this day unfolded perfectly. The images reflect just that: two people who are in love, relaxed and getting married. The rest, did not matter.
We had a very tight schedule to start off the wedding day but we ended up right on schedule. The bride was organized, cooperative, authentic and elegant. We had looked at images from Elizabeth Messina during the week leading to her wedding. When I saw the awesome makeup and the cute “voilette» come into the hotel room, I let the memories of those beautiful images be the inspiration for the bridal portrait session.
Want to know a little secret? Some of the beautiful images of the couple were shot on McGill campus, our old stomping ground, and NOT Europe. Yet, have passport and would gladly go back for a wedding…
Emily & Brandon : Volume 3
Last week, we were called back to photograph the latest chapter in this young couple’s story. First came Asher (formerly called the fig) and then Xander, baby and son number 2. It was a genuine delight to go back once again to create images of the latest addition to this family. On a midsummer rainy morning, we made time stand still for a while and created these precious memories. I’ve said it before and will say it again: you will not regret having taken the time to photograph your family.
Drunk on milk.
