fiddle leaf photography
Mar 9, 2018
I often leave in-home family photo sessions with really cool ideas for my own family. Maybe it’s a new cookie recipe, a cool kid hack, a chore chart or a song they were playing during our time together….after the session I always go to my car and make a note so I don’t forget by the time I get home. (As an aside, is it only me who forgets things like this once I enter the car??? ). But after this session, I didn’t need to make a note as there was no way I was forgetting the epic scooter rides that happened during our time together.
As a bit of a backstory, my girls do not love bikes. I had dreams of us riding around on our bikes as a family and exploring a bunch of different parks with a picnic in tow (insert the laughter at my idealism here), but apparently that’s not going to happen as they are not into bikes at all. But, during this Edmonton family photo session, I learned that bikes are not the only answer! Did you know they make scooters for adults? I had no idea and I was blown away. I had to actually restrain myself from whipping my phone out and ordering one in the middle of the session.
This was my first time photographing a scootering family, but I sure hope it’s not my last. We also spent our time together stringing beads, playing the recorder, organizing the fridge magnets, raking leaves and pretending the living room couch was a pirate ship. Although I’m sure these lovely parents are exhausted most days, I hope these photos bring them back to those precious days where 15 activities could be completed in just over an hour and how the boys went into each new activity with such enthusiasm and joy.
Below is the slideshow from this Edmonton photo session, followed by a few of my favourite stills.
P.S. If this family looks familiar, it’s because we hung out last year too! You can catch that session here.
