Iconic Dundurn Castle Family Photographs

Everyone expects to receive gifts during major holidays including Christmas, Thanksgiving, and New Year’s Day. Kells' Natural Photography loves to surprise our followers with “just because” gifts on ordinary dates — this is exactly what happened on April 19th, 2017, when we put out a call asking our online friends to celebrate joy in the world by telling us something that made them smile that ordinary day.

Once a few portraits of the entire family have been captured, I love to work with the children individually from their parents, while maintaining a visual connection between all members. It is at this point that the individual personalities shine — the boys are great dancers and were eager to show off their “dab” move.

I love the combination of architecture and natural backgrounds, all within one location. This variety helps to tell a more complete story.

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.

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!
