The perfect winter engagement photo shoot. Melissa and Mike

All we needed was a unicorn or maybe Bambi running across the field.  This was like the perfect winter engagement shoot.  I love the fact that the past few lifestyle engagement shoots were all done outdoors in the winter wonderland. The one killer thing was the COLD weather.

When Melissa and Mike said they wanted to do a winter shoot, they could not have picked a better day.  A few weeks back during this shoot, we couldn’t have asked for better weather.  It was warm and there was blowing snow which kinda made the shoot look magical.  What really made the shoot was of course, Melissa and Mike. They guys are super chill and such a great looking couple.

Mike and Melissa suggested that we meet near a path that they walk through all the time in Kleinburg.  So we all met up and literally just had some fun in the snow.  Melissa and Mike are a comfortable, loving, fun and playful couple which was reflected in front of the camera. I love all the cute props that they brought with them too. We wrapped up our shoot inside a cool little forest we saw when driving by.

To my friends Melissa and Mike, I truly had a blast with this shoot and I can’t wait to do this again on the big day. Thanks so much again guys and we hope you like the pics =)

Gifting this surprise family shoot for his wife’s birthday

H contacted me about setting up a family shoot as a surprise for his wife’s birthday. This was super thoughtful of him but I did warn him just from past experience with surprise shoots, he should give a little warning or make sure his wife would be ready for the camera somehow. We have done a few shoots in the past where the partner was totally surprised (good thing) but so not ready for the camera (bad thing) =)

On the morning of their shoot, I met the whole family at their beautiful house.  H and his wife have 2 adorable daughters.  During the shoot it was sweet seeing the whole family interact and for me it was fun capturing the things they do in this family lifestage.   The whole family was super comfortable in front of the camera which really made for fun candid pics of everyone.  It was awesome that we got to wrap up our shoot with the whole family practicing yoga… super cute stuff.

I want to sincerely thank our mutual friend Winnie for the warm introduction. I want to thank H for coordinating this shoot and having me capture this day. Here are some pics from your gift to your wife.  Thanks again and enjoy!
