VALENTINE’S ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS

♥  Valentine’s engagement photos are a unique way to document one stage of your relationship. I do believe that relationships are important and require work. In order for a relationship to grow and thrive it is imperative to do special things for one another. Valentine’s Day is a good time to remember to invest in your relationship. Many people get engaged at this time of the year as it is a day set apart to celebrate love. This is a great time to book Valentine’s Engagement Photos so you can document this romantic and special time in your lives. Love is in the air and you can certainly show this in your photos. There are many ways that you and your partner can get creative during your photo session.You can include red heart with the snow in the background. Red, or pink hearts scattered around you, really anything red, pink or colourful will show up nicely in the engagement photos. You can make it very unique to you and your fiance by choosing a theme and a location that says something about you. Be unique, creative and express your love in creative ways. I am happy to work with your creative ideas and provide you with suggestions and ideas if you need to. Feel free to contact me and will set up a meeting. I’ve put together a few sample photos for inspiration. Enjoy!

6 Tips for Preparing for Your Family Photo Shoot

1. Choosing your wardrobe = choosing the look!

Families often ask me if they should be colour coordinated for a shoot –  I want your photos to look natural and as candid as possible so I suggest you don’t get ‘matchy-matchy’ but instead wear similar tones.  Everyone should be comfortable in their clothes – the camera can tell when your child is itchy or not wearing something they can breath in!  New clothes are best as they are crisp and show well  – and who doesn’t like a new outfit!?

2.  Look Your Best!

Hair and makeup are necessary for you to shine!  And men should pay attention to the details too and spend extra time grooming – trust me, it will show in the photos.  I always recommend you avoid flip flops, shorts and baggy or very trendy clothes – these items can date the photo and you want timeless and clean images.

3. Location, location, location!

Natural light is always best – being outdoors is my number one choice!  Trust me that I will take you somewhere that will be best for your family and the size of your group.

4. Bribery is encouraged!

Make sure everyone is well fed and watered before the shoot!  However, you know your kids best so if there is something you can bribe them with to get that winning smile or to settle them – then by all means, bring it! 

5.  Pets are Family

If you are planning to include your family pet – please bring an extra person to look after them.  That way you can all relax and your furry family member can explore without taking you away from the session. 

6.  Keep Your Sanity

Don’t worry about me, I have seen it all: meltdowns and tantrums – and that is just from the parents!  😉  You never have to apologize for your kids behaviour – it is my job to get them to smile and engage with me.  Also if kids need to run and explore, let them – some of my best shots are candid moments captured forever!

Other than that, just bring your best smiles!

CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEA THAT LASTS!

Here is a special Christmas gift idea that can help with your holiday planning. As a Burlington Wedding and Family Photographer I can tell you that memories are an important part of all our lives. Old letters, photographs, scrapbooks, and many other things help us to recall our past and the history of our family and communities.  

At Christmas time, we all face the dilemma of what Christmas gift ideas to get our family members, friends or employees. As we all know – less is more when giving at Christmas…we don’t need more stuff – but we can never have too many portraits or photos of special events and family gatherings. What a special Christmas gift idea it would be to give a family portrait session to those you care about!

Also an important aspect for ensuring the long term survival of important photos is to print them out physically and to keep the prints in a safe place – what better place than in the hands of your parents and relatives?
