Weir's Lavender Farm Family Portraits at Golden Hour

Located 40 minutes West of Toronto, but seemingly a world away, Weir’s Lavender Farm opened in 2009 with a small field containing several varieties of the beautiful purple flower. It has since grown to include a native wildflower garden, bee-keeping practice and store.

A venue which takes pride in their deep community roots, the location celebrates the connection between families and nature — a perfect venue for portrait photography. As a Hamilton family photographer, this location offered an incredible sunset glow from behind the field, and a seemingly endless backdrop that set the stage. I love engaging each individual with a few laughs before we get started, and then letting the moments unfold. As a family portrait photographer, it is my role to showcase each and every subject at their best — from little giggles of tiny tots, to the heartfelt connection of a couple in love — capturing authentic moments is all in the timing of each image.

One of my favourite images features a family of four, near the end of the event. As they held hands (mother and daughter, father and son) and made their way through the rows of lavender, I saw the sun drop down towards the treetops. With scattered clouds overhead, the purple field was mirrored above, and the warm glow of light brought a crisp clarity to the image. Quite simply, Weir’s Lavender Farm has some of the most beautiful light locally. It certainly inspires me, as a Hamilton family portrait photographer. 

I loved working at Weir’s Lavender Farm and hope this will become an annual event. Thank you to all who participated.
