We never quite got our act together to have family photos taken last year, so I was determined to make it happen in 2015. Back in October, we met our favourite photographers, and good friends, Chelle and Adam at Gates U-Pick in Port Williams. I think it started hailing just as we arrived, ha. Even though we were freezing, and even though Hannah never stops moving, Chelle managed to capture some great shots of our afternoon. I've included some of my favourites below.
I really believe that professional family photos are worth the investment, and I'm glad we made time for them this year. As much as I enjoy looking at them now, I know we'll really appreciate these photos, and the moment in time they captured, as Hannah gets older (and hey, us too). I'm guilty of wanting to put off photos until I lose those last 10 pounds, or start getting more sleep (ha!), but I also know that over the course of my life there will be years where I'm thinner, and heavier, tired, and better-rested. We'll have good years and bad years, and I want to be able to capture and look back on at least one small snippet of them all. I blame this photography series, which I was lucky enough to see in D.C. several years ago and have never forgotten. Anyway, when I look through these photos, I mostly think we look pretty darn happy. Thanks Chelle and Adam!
