Hart’s Family Photos

This weekend I had the opportunity to take some family photos for my good friend, Heather. I wanted to take some pictures by the orchard, but her baby, Liam was asleep when they got to my place, so they asked if we could just do the other location I had in mind first. I wanted to go down by the river by some cool black rocks, but when we got there, the rocks were sharp and ugly and the sun was still pretty high in the sky… so we decided to drive down a little dirt road and see what setting we could find there instead.

Drew & Lindsay Family Photoshoot by the River

Drew & Lindsay Family Photoshoot by the River

This weekend my friend Lindsey and her husband (who’s my husband’s cousin) asked if I would take some family photos for them. It’s something we’ve been talking about doing for a while now–and on the day we finally got around to doing it, it was SO windy, that we had to cancel at the last minute. Then the next day, everything just seemed to fall into place so perfectly! The sun came out 20 minutes before the photoshoot. We found a place about 20 minutes away that was just beautiful at every turn–long grasses, rugged water line, rocks, flowers, and a cool bridge. Not only was the sun and setting perfect, but Drew, Lindsey and their two cute kiddos couldn’t have been a more photogenic family! Their kids were SO happy and giggly, and I was able to capture some really sweet moments! This was a REALLY fun photoshoot!

For American mothers day on sunday my two really small kiddos got me the most awesome gift I could ever wish for!! A 1.4 lens for my camera! It’s a lens I have wanted since I started this Blog back in September. To be honest, I didn’t really know quite how much of a difference it would make to my photos–I only knew that if it was the lens all my really good photographer friends use and rave about, and if it was THAT expensive, then it HAD to be good, and holy smokes was that an understatement!

Baby Liams Pictures

Baby Liams Pictures

My really good friend Heather asked if I would take some maternity pictures for her a few months ago- but then she went into labour a little earlier than expected, and I never got around to doing them. I felt really bad that she never got any, so to make it up to her, I asked if I could do some newborn pictures of Liam. This was also my way of thanking her for being such a great friend and helping me out when I had my last baby, by bringing meals and babysitting! She’s really been a life-saver. I have been SO crazy busy lately- but Liam’s already six weeks old, so I had to find a moment to do them ASAP. He was such a little angel. Calm and alert- and seriously CUTE!

Jr. Miss Photoshoot

A few weeks ago I had made the decision to give up doing photography for people outside of my family and close circle of friends (because I didn’t think I was at the level I needed to be, and I didn’t have the time to dedicate to get to the level I needed to be). Then a nice lady from my church came round with a meal for me & my family while my hubby was recovering from his eye surgery, and asked if I would please take pictures for the Jr. Miss programs & newspapers, and I could hardly say no after she was so nice.
