I know Mary through my good friend Mona, I photographed the baptism of her cousin and Mona’s brother’s little boy about 6 years ago (here is the link to the baptism http://mphphotography.net/blog/2010/10/adams-baptism-mph-photography-toronto/). So I was really excited when she contacted me and asked to set up a session for her and her beautiful family. The kids were little when I photographed them at the baptism, they were the Godparents and they were so cute and I always told her that I would love to photograph them as a family and I’m so glad she came to me as I knew we were going to have a wonderful time at our session.
This year’s weather hasn’t been so great, but we managed to pick a good day except that they were renovating the parking at the beach that we had intended to go too, it didn’t matter though, we parked farther and all walked and had a nice time chit chatting and catching up since we last saw them a few years back.
The beach was pretty empty too which doesn’t usually happen but because of the renovation, not many were there, so we had the place to ourselves basically.
If the water wasn’t so cold, I would have made them all go into the water for some fun shots, but of course it was freezing and the kids couldn’t take it, they went in for about five mins but that was it, they kicked some water at each other and quickly got out of there as fast as they could,lol, maybe next year we’ll do a session and finish off with them jumping into their pool.
We had such a great time with this family, it was like hanging out with old friends, and they feel like they are part of our family, not only because Mary is greek but because we got along so well and her kids are so sweet and nice and I want my kids to meet them as I think they would all become friends. Hopefully in the near future we can set up something for all of us to get together and hang out.
Thanks so much Mary and Rob for being super fun and super awesome. We really enjoyed our time with you and we look forward to doing it again one day. Enjoy your sneak peek.
