The Gillis' were one of the first families I photographed when I moved to Yellowknife last Fall. I recall that my own family was still stuck in the hotel looking for a home and unfamiliar with the town, and Erica kindly offered to drive me around town and show me some of the beautiful locations around town that might be great for family photographs. This was just the beginning of the warmth and friendliness I have experienced in Yellowknife since moving here one year ago.
I was more than thrilled to be able to photograph them again this Fall. As always, they were such a pleasure to spend time with. Thank you for inviting me out to document your beautiful family!
I had the privilege of meeting baby MacGreger- a fresh 4 days old- with his beautiful family last weekend. Most little newborns love to sleep throughout a chunk of their photo session, but wee MacGreger was completely content to stay awake and alert for most of the 2 hours. What a happy, laid back fellow he was!
Keeping with MacGreger's rich and colourful Scottish heritage, we have included some gorgeous family items as props in this photo session. I hope you enjoy viewing each of the different set ups as they were so much fun to create. Your feedback in the comments section is always appreciated; let us know what you think.
Thank you to the Grant Family for allowing me this opportunity to document such a big milestone in your life. Congratulations on your sweet new addition!
A crisp, northern wind has blown through Yellowknife as the last of the yellow, orange, and red leaves finally dropped to the ground. Around us in other northern Canadian communities, winter has already arrived in blankets of glistening white snow. However for us here in Yellowknife all those leaves meant for a leaf pile-full of fun with the Norman Family! Despite the cold and windy morning they came out with so much positive energy and lots of enthusiasm. What a beautiful, loving family. Thank you for inviting me to join you in documenting some wonderful moments!
