Hamilton Waterfront Anniversary Portraits at Bayfront Park

Mike and Nicole's Anniversary shoot took place at Bay Front Park in Hamilton. They wanted something along a shoreline, since their wedding last year took place at The Lakeview, a charming waterfront wedding venue with views of the Toronto skyline in the distance.

Bay Front Park is a lovely location for couple’s portraits. Although the beach area is absolutely gorgeous, the park also features a variety of hiking trails and open grass space that offer plenty of variety in a single location. I met with Mike and Nicole in the early evening on a bright, sunny day. We began our portraits near the boat launch and marina, setting the scene for this nautical Hamilton photography session. Including the boats in the background helped to contextualize the images, while keeping focus on this lovely couple. Later on, Mike and Nicole were eager to get their toes wet — I love working with couples who really embrace their location — for some romantic photographs with the setting sun.

Great Gift Idea for The Person Who Has Everything - Book a Family Portrait Session Today!

When the Bury family wanted to surprise Grandma Lynn with a gift that would make her smile every day, Kells' Natural Photography was happy to help! Especially with little ones growing, tangible memories are so important. This family portrait session was planned to coincide with their lakefront family reunion, the following summer.

In addition to portraits of the entire group, Kells' Natural Photography loves to capture each individual family unit, giving everyone involved some time in the spotlight! In many cases, a couple’s wedding day is the first time they are professionally photographed together. As the years after that celebration pass and they grow their family, having portraits done may not be at the forefront of their minds. When the opportunity is presented, the focus of many photographers is often on the children. Kells' Natural Photography makes a point to spend time with all couples present, separate from the little ones. One day those tiny people will grow and these images of their parents and grandparents will become an important piece in their history — something to treasure dearly.


If you are looking for a wonderful gift idea, consider scheduling a portrait session for the loved ones in your life. Give us a call; we would love to work with you! (905) 920-4947.

Portraits of Three Generations at Gage Park, Hamilton Ontario

Despite a few early threats from Mother Nature, the weather was perfect for this Gage Park family portrait session. Kells Natural Photography was contacted to capture a group portrait of three generations — preserving this precious time by capturing a group portrait of three generations before the littlest member grows.


Gage Park offers diverse backgrounds for Hamilton family portraits, within a single location (read: great variety, with little walking distance!). Of course, the main focal points are the majestic fountains, surrounded by florals in vibrant colours — perfect for summertime! One of my favourite images from this session features the entire family gathered at the base of one fountain. Because of the perspective used, the fountain appears taller than the trees behind it, giving the structure a majestic importance. I also love how the family chose to coordinate one main colour for their outfits, which mirrors the shimmering blue water around them, placing them in the scene.


This family loves baseball, and the particular pose captured in the image below is a tradition which began at the couple’s wedding, several years prior. Adding a few small props, or choosing a location which holds a sentimental importance is a wonderful way to personalize your Hamilton family photographs.
