Every year I get a few requests to photograph families in the winter. I’m always a little weary as my experience with working with people in the cold often means running noses, cranky kids and bulky sweaters that are often unflattering. But I understand that around the holidays is often the only time extended families get together so I usually give in and say let’s go for it. I’m happy to say that this year my winter family sessions were great! Yes, it was cold and the kids were doing jumping jacks to stay warm, but everyone was game and no unruly sweaters too boot! The first family is below – on one of the coldest mornings of 2015!
Kelly and Adam had dreamed of an outdoor wedding so they booked their ceremony at the beautiful Hermitage Gardens. As with any outdoor wedding they knew that they were taking a chance with the weather. And when the morning of their wedding came it looked like it was going to be a cold wash out. Luckily it cleared up a bit and everyone was happy with overcast. Then right as their ceremony began and the bride reached the alter the sun came out for the first time and beamed across the couple. It was a wonderful wedding day gift!
