Celebrating Spring with Mini Sessions in Gage Park

It was that time of year again — mini sessions at Kells Natural Photography! The theme was a celebration of springtime, perfectly timed to chase away the winter blues. The Hamilton, Ontario, outdoor park location was particularly well suited, with bright floral gardens, lush tree cover, and playful fountain ponds. As you can see below, several of our participants were quite excited by the flowing water!


Mini sessions are perfect for young children with short attention spans. We work quickly to keep them engaged, starting with a few formal portraits of the entire family, and then encouraging playful interaction between family members. In some cases, little ones wonder off to explore their surroundings. These “in-between” moments often tell the most genuine story, showing the inquisitive nature of youth, and the joy they experience in exploring the natural world.


As a Hamilton family photographer, I also find mini sessions are also ideal for those with particularly busy schedules. With two working parents, one child in baseball camp and the other at ballet practice, it can be difficult to arrange a longer portrait session. Mini sessions work well around your schedule, as you can select the time slot most suitable, often from a choice of two dates.


Mini sessions are frequently announced on our Facebook Page. We have a variety of themes throughout the year, but spaces fill quickly! “Like” us HERE:

Kindergarten Graduation Portraits in Hamilton

Graduation photographs at a young age are incredibly important in a child’s overall outlook on their academic career. As a Hamilton child photographer, I believe that the process of preparing to have portraits captured, then later viewing the photographs which celebrate their achievement can encourage young children to set future goals. Photographs can also help young children develop self-esteem as they feel important throughout the process of being photographed, and have pride in showing the resulting images to family and friends.

One of my favourite images features a young girl posing with her Dr. Seuss book. As it is always my intention to capture the honest essence of each subject, I enjoying taking the time to engage each child by discussing their favourite academics, sports and hobbies before we begin. In this case, she became comfortable with my camera by firstly being photographed with her book — bringing out a genuine smile! Following this, we documented a more formal portraits, giving variety within a short graduation portrait session.

I can’t wait to photograph these little ones in the future — they have big dreams ahead!
