It’s always an honor and a pleasure to have good friends in front of my camera…I was thrilled that Karin asked me to take some pictures of her and her family. But, I have to admit, I was super nervous about this session….as many of my readers know, Karin is a wonderful photographer, and it’s always a little nerve wracking photographing a photographer. But, having known Karin for many many years (I still remember when she first came to our school in grade 3 or 4 and had the best headband ever with colorful twirly ribbons on it…and ok that was really just a few years ago, right?) we got busy chatting about kids and photography between taking pictures, baby feeding, playing in the sand, running after playing boys…and before I knew it the sun was starting to set and our session was over. I loved having this sweet family in front of my camera again. I feel so fortunate to have been able to capture each of their boys as a baby. And while summer holidays may have gotten in the way of a newborn session with James, I was still so glad we got to capture this fun, crazy and happy time in their lives as a family of five. Thanks so much for your friendship Karin, so thankful for our coffee visits, phone calls and for our very own photo shoot that was just a few days after this one. So excited that we got to be in front of your camera!
I am super thrilled that our wonderful friend and photographer Wenda Sikma came along as well (her calming influence definitely helped my nerves) and I know that she got some amazing shots as well Karin, you know you are a celebrity when you have not one but two photographers taking pictures of you and your family! I think Wenda will be posting some images on her blog, so be sure to check back there to see her captures as well.
On another (techy photographer) note…I finally bit the bullet and bought a new camera! Super pumped to be shooting with the new Canon 5D Mark III. After using the original 5D for several years, I was thrilled to upgrade (and did I mention? I got the camera the day before their session. A little stressful and exciting all at the same time!). The color out of this camera is beyond amazing, and the images below had very little processing done to them. And the sheer number of focal points is enough to make my heart pitter-patter.
As a photographer, you are rarely in front of the camera, so the focus of this session was lots of pics with Karin IN them!
It’s always a bonus when you have a gorgeous subject like Karin to photograph (and a super cute baby!).
I really could photograph her all. day. long.
She is so incredibly beautiful and photogenic!
These boys are full of spunk and definitely kept us on our toes. But they are so darn cute you just can’t resist.
I mean seriously, check out Matthias’ muscle pose! And that handsome smile from the new kindergartener Noah:
Stay tuned for part 2…we ended the session with some beautiful beach shots of Karin and James, plus some more lovely family shots! More to come soon
