This family keeps getting sweeter and sweeter

Hi journal, it’s me Janis. It’s been too long.

I’ve been meaning to get back to writing and posting, and thought this sweet family session was a great occasion to jump back in. This is the third shoot we’ve done together – and the first with their new baby girl!

Two things I’d like to mention before you immerse yourself in their cuteness:

  1. Working with returning clients is the best thing ever. We skip the getting to know you phase and start out the session already connected. If the kids remember me – amazing – but even if they don’t, I remember them. I remember how they’ve changed and how they’ve stayed the same.  I feel like you can feel the comfort coming through in the images.
  2. You do not need a field of flowering meadows or a forest of bright red trees for a great family session to come together. I shot this on a cold dark day in two rooms of their house – and I think it’s one of my new favourites. I’m not saying I don’t love a great meadow at golden hour, but I will say if the weather or location don’t turn out as expected, if you have the people you love with you – we can make something great happen!!

I’ll be back soon,

xo J
