Oleg, Pauline, & Jade are special to us for many reasons. The first time we worked with Pauline & Oleg was back in June, 2015, when we photographed Jade’s birth! That session is still one of the most powerful experiences we’ve ever had, not only as photographers, but as humans. It was a crack of thunder in our lives. Fast forward almost 6 months and we were capturing this lovely family again at Dingle Park on a beautiful autumn day. We really couldn’t believe how fast Jade had grown… yeah, we know how cliche as that sounds. Honestly, it’s a reminder for me to stay present because life passes us by so fast.
Actually, we’ve been spending quite a lot of time recently with Oleg and Pauline, working with them on in a different capacity. They have an amazing project, Yomes, which we’ve been helping them with. Yomes is a web community empowering renters with honest reviews (by renters) of spaces they’ve lived in. It’s sort of like Yelp, but better, and for rental properties. Yomes has a much different atmosphere than apartment hunting websites or Kijiji ads, which feel more like electronic billboards for property management companies rather than honest comparisons. If you are in the market for an apartment or can provide some insights into one of the local rental properties, we highly recommend signing up. While, Yomes is still growing, we believe like Jade, it won’t be long before we can’t believe how big the community has grown.
Looking back at the family sessions we had in the fall, it’s made us excited to get behind the camera again. We would love to capture some newborn, family + lifestyle sessions before we get caught up in our wedding season. We know it might sound crazy to set up family sessions in the winter because most often we think of heading outdoors for photo sessions but we want to possibly change your mind. Our lifestyle sessions are more about capturing you hanging out as a family and less about you posing for our camera. We want to make these sessions FUN and memorable… creating a space to embrace your time together. Let us capture your afternoon craft time, game night, or tea time with bear and dolly. We believe these moments are much more precious than poses at the park (don’t worry, we will get some posed shots too). So if you’re tired of playing iPhone paparazzi in your home, let us give you the freedom to be a part of the fun. We will capture the memories for you for a day. So… connect with us and we can start brainstorming some winter family fun to be had!
