When we needed to postpone their shoot again because of weather in early February I surely thought by mid-April a lot of our snow would have melted. Not so. A cold wind blew hard but we were determined to capture their family’s first portraits. What an honor! I was glad Nicole told me they were adventurous. Getting up into the loft of our barn, especially with a 1 year old, is just that! The light pouring thru the missing slats + cracks takes me in every time. This barn has a lot of history being built over 80 years ago. A real juxtaposition with a young family excited of what their future will bring!
Nicole is also a photographer so their sweet little girl has a lot of experience in front of a camera. Lexus stayed pretty serious but I just love how bright eyed she is and she did so well considering this weather. She maybe even let her parents snuggle her a bit more than usual! Nicole has her studio outside of Estevan and specializes in newborn photography – NZ photography.
I try to leave time during family sessions to capture just the parents. I especially love when clients request beforehand that we make time for the two of them!
