Family Shoot :: The Duhemes
Lifestyle , October 7, 2012
I’ve got to say, taking photos of a 3 year old is no easy task. Babies just sit around, maybe roll or crawl; but once a kid can run it becomes a whole new ball game. At the same time, I love it! I love seeing them in their natural surroundings, I love the natural playfulness, I just love capturing kids being kids.
When Melissa and Andrew contacted me to shoot their wedding, they weren’t interested in an engagement shoot, but when I mentioned a family shoot with both of them plus their son Caleb, they were ecstatic! A perfect alternative. Their wedding just passed last weekend and it was fantastic (photos to come shortly). But for now, let’s see this family one week before the big day.
I took a little drive out to Huntingdon, Quebec to meet with Melissa, Andrew, & Caleb. Huntingdon is a bit of a drive from the city out into, what I like to refer to as, farmland. I’m a city guy, so I don’t get to venture this far out too often, but I loved the scenic drive through quaint little towns bursting with character. Speaking of character, Andrew’s old family house was a step above. The property was amazing! I can only imagine what it would have been like to grow up there. Anyways, ignore this city slicker’s ramblings and have a look.
I did not pose this kid. Caleb just sat down in the most perfect “model-like” position. I couldn’t take a bad photo of him!
