A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting the ridiculously adorable Ristow Sanday Family. The Ristow Sanday family moved to Edmonton about 2 years ago and they are originally from South Africa. You could imagine my reaction: “WHat the HECK are you doing Here, Its FREEZING!!!”
Although I normally shy away from family sessions, I can honestly say I definitely enjoyed photographing this family for my portrait assignment!! It was a brisk 8am shoot at Jackie Parker Park and the first scream of the day from this little man was “WATER!!” -Turns out 2 year old Mr. Connor had some not so fond memories of this park in the summer and couldn’t trust to believe in us when we explained that the water was “All gone!” As the shoot went on Liesel(mother), Stuart(father) and I gabbed on about the crazy lone goose resting on the frozen pond, the blue bouncy ball Dad used as a distraction from the horrifying water phobia, and of course how they were going to have a donut and a spot of tea afterwards to warm up! With a short break in the car and plenty of silly talk, we ended up with sooo many photographs to choose from! I cannot express enough the wonderful people I get to work with! Here is to one of the sweetest little families I have ever met! Enjoy!
