Outdoor Family Photographer | Brantford, Kitchener, Hamilton and surrounding areas
I love being an outdoor family photographer. It gives me the challenge of finding amazing locations (and not all locations are created equally…no matter how beautiful the spot, it is all about the light). It gives me the challenge of working with light I don’t control. It gives me the challenge of capturing children who have endless amounts of space to run around. In my studio, the light is set up by me and controlled by me. The children are contained to one small area…mind you that can also be a hurdle lol. Being an outdoor family photographer gives me the ability to have fun with families and for families to let loose and be at ease. I find photo sessions outdoors are a little more laid back and fun. We can play games and run around. It is challenging for many reasons but really, it brings me great joy to capture families in an outdoor setting.
My goal at the end of an outdoor family session is for the families to say, “That was fun!!” We have tons of fun together but manage to capture gorgeous family images. Consider it an hour of complete and total quality family time. Yes, I pose you – but it isn’t painful, which is good for the dads especially. But posing is only done to create a pleasing photo. The natural interactions are up to you and your family. You get to interact together, smile and tell goofy stories. You get to snuggle up and enjoy each other’s company without any distractions. Here is an outdoor family photo session that I just adored from start to finish:
This sweet girl was celebrating her first birthday right around the time of this session. Mom did bring a cupcake, but we thought when she was happy to grab and munch on an apple it was just the cutest so we opted for an apple smash instead of a cupcake smash. Plus, that sweater and the apple just look oh so perfect together!
