When we started planning this session we just knew it had to be an outside session, Jen and Phil love the outdoors and it’s not often we get nice mild temperatures in early January! We couldn’t let it go to waste! As the day started approaching I was a little worried the session would look like a November session and not a January session because we had very little snow…and with the temperatures that week jumping above zero I was sure any snow that was left would be gone for the shoot! But we lucked out and the day before the shoot the city got sprinkled with a gorgeous thick layer of snow! AND the temperatures stayed mild…WIN!
Jen and I go waaaay back. Way back to the early days in Winkler when I was just a rink rat watching the older figure skaters from behind the glass at the Winkler arena just dreaming of the day I would be out there with them. Jen’s lucky I haven’t made it to my parents house between this blog post and then because I might have been tempted to scan some old pictures just to prove that we knew each other way back when! I love how photography has allowed me to reconnect with old friends and watch them take oh. so. exciting steps in their lives. Jen and Phil are expecting their first lil babe very soon and I can’t wait to meet him or her!
Enjoy these photos from our very lovely winter day!
