I have been in love with the Bloxham Annex near Cascades Park since I first laid eyes on about a year ago, and it’s been in the back of my mind as a location since then. So when I started thinking about Holiday Mini Sessions and where I could shoot them this year, I knew the white architecture of those buildings would offer the perfect backdrop!
Mary and I connected through our local TuesdaysTogether Rising Tide Society group. She was in need of holiday card photos. Good timing on her part because I was still available on the day she inquired about! When she told me it would be herself, her husband and their adorable pup, Syndey, I couldn’t wait to meet them!
She rocked a blue romper and Kurt was styling in his burgundy pants. And of course, Sydney looked cuter than possible in her momma-homemade bow – which Mary made in the car on the way to the shoot! Good job, Mary! It’s super fancy for having been whipped up during a car ride!
And the light was perfect for the surroundings! A beautiful, knarly Live Oak, a pop of turquoise on a swing, which happened to match the blue railings on the white architecture. I’m a sucker for white backdrops as much as I am for pops of color. I’m so glad they trusted me and climbed the stairs, because as soon as I clicked the shutter I knew that would be my favorite photo from the session. And I love the walking photo of them too. I love all of them – let’s get real.
They are just perfect together. I love the way she looks up at him when I told him “Say ‘I love you’ to her.”
Happy holidays you two (well, three including Sydney), thanks for trusting me to capture your love on film!
