Summer in The Kawarthas is the best and growing up spending your summer’s at the cottage is even better! When Taryn asked me to photograph her daughter’s first birthday at the cottage I was thrilled to do so. I’ve gotten to know this little family over the past couple of years and the more I photograph them, the better their photograph’s become. This is a real thing, I swear it. The more I have emotionally invested in couples and families the better the photos are…. I’m not sure whether it’s the connection we develop over time, or the fact that they become more comfortable with me as a their photographer and trust my style and judgement…. whatever it is, it makes me happy.
