Mr. G and his beautiful family

I love that I can share my love of photography with all of my friends. It makes me so happy to see that my little obsession (ok, big obsession) brings them so much joy when I get that "perfect" picture shot.  This past weekend I got to do it again with my oldest (and by oldest I don't mean age, I mean she has known me the longest) and dearest friend Tara. We have been best friends since we were in grade 6. I have written about her before. Anyhoo, 6 months ago she had a baby, I shot newborn pics for her. He was that cutie I featured a few weeks ago about comparing your middle to your beginning. Now that he is 6 months old T wanted some pics of her adorable Mr. G smiling that oh so adorable toothless smile. I was super excited to help out. I thought you might like to see what we came up with.

First we took some family shots.

I have known for years how incredibly beautiful Tara is.  As teens I always witnessed how the boys would just flock to her. Now she is a mamma to that beautiful little boy and she must have passed on the photogenic genes to him too because I could not take a bad picture of him if I tried.  And her hubby is not so bad either. Man this is one photogenic family!

After some family shots I took some of daddy with Mr. G! They were so cute with their matching (but not too matchy) outfits. Matchy is a word you know!

Then it was time for a little Mommy and Mr. G!

The day we shot these pictures it was very cloudy. I was worried about rain but we lucked out. Cloudy days are great for shooting outside because you don't have to worry about bad sun glare or squinty eyes. I wish that we had foliage on the trees, however, with the edits I made I think the trees look good. It makes those pictures with dad feel more masculine.

Mr. G was in such a good mood after this family shoot that I was able to take him up to my bedroom and do more awesome pictures of just him on my bed!!!! Check out these blue eyes!!!

Oh and one last picture because it just makes me giggle!

hehe I just love the expression on his face! What a cutie!

T I hope you love these pictures as much as I do!!!

  1. So gorgeous AnnMarie! What a lovely family and you are soooo talented!! I wish you lived near us so you could take photos of our family like these. We still have a three year old family photo as our best family photo (our youngest son isn't even in it- how terrible is that!). You have reminded me that I need to "get on this"... unless you are coming out to BC soon?

    1. Awww thank-you Krista! That is so sweet of you! And yes you need to go and get pictures done! Asap! I am a huge believer of family portraits. Your kids grow up so fast, you need to lock in those memories with a few family shots. But like I said in this post, I'm a little obsessed with photography so my opinion might be a little biased. hehe
