Start of the Fall Portrait Season

Hello to everyone!
It's so hard to believe it's almost been a month since I blogged last. What an incredible fall season this has been. Mama Nature has been very kind to me with only 2 rained out shoots this entire fall. I was concerned when we were in the single digit temps last week. I wasn't expecting that so soon! This week is looking glorious! I am loving the colourful fall sweaters and the cute knitted caps my little clients are showing up in for their shoots.
Housekeeping...I am taking a photoshop course tomorrow with the area's most amazing photographer - Christine Kufske - of CLICK photography. I am really looking forward to spending the day with her to learn more about the technical end of editing... so that I can smooth out that skin for you ladies! I still have so much to learn and I am so fortunate to have a wonderful mentor behind me. I could go on about Christine...but I am saving that.

On to this weeks' post. I have known this beautiful family since Claire was 18 months old. Our little ones were in the same daycare and we have remained friends ever since. I was so humbled when Mom contacted me to do pictures for her. It's one thing to have people you don't know contact you for shoots and it's another feeling when your friends reach out. It's the biggest compliment!
This shoot kicked off my fall season....and dates back to the day before school started (yes that is how far behind I am!!). We had a gorgeous afternoon and a very successful shoot. I love these little girls...they are just as sweet in person as they are in the pictures.
And a little story behind how to get a successful shot - bribery. Yes. I am 100% in favour of bribes during a photoshoot. We had the girls pull their little toys to Dad who was off to the side. It works like a charm! Enjoy!
