East Village Summer Family Session

As the official first day of summer arrives, I can’t help but feel overjoyed to take you on a journey back to a remarkable East Village Summer Family Session. The vibrant greenery surrounding us serves as a picturesque backdrop, filling the air with a sense of renewal and excitement.

Personally, I have a deep fondness for Family Sessions that involve older “kids.” These sessions possess a unique dynamic that sets them apart from those with younger children. The evolving personalities of these individuals often lead to hilarious and heartwarming moments.

One person who exemplifies pure joy is Marci, whom I’ve had the pleasure of knowing for years. So, when she approached me to capture her beautiful family during this East Village session, I couldn’t contain my excitement. Little did I know, we were in for a delightful laughter-filled adventure!

Marci had expressed her desire for a modern touch in her family session, and after careful consideration, I proposed St. Patrick’s Island as the perfect location. Its combination of architectural marvels, showcased through the meticulously placed metal bridges amidst nature’s embrace, and the stunning views of East Village and downtown Calgary, instantly won their hearts.

Throughout my Family Sessions, my ultimate goal is to ensure that everyone in the family feels comfortable and at ease. To achieve this, I initiate a series of questions that evoke genuine responses and create memorable moments. One question that often raises eyebrows is, “Who’s the favorite child?” I understand that this may seem forward or even offensive to some, but let’s be honest – deep down, every parent has their own special connection with each of their children. These candid inquiries pave the way for epic moments during our session, and rest assured, I always have a repertoire of thought-provoking questions up my sleeve. Furthermore, don’t be surprised if I propose a spontaneous dance-off! Let’s see who has been honing their moves during quarantine.

As the East Village Summer Family Session unfolded, the atmosphere brimmed with laughter and love. Marci’s radiant energy uplifted the spirits of her family members, creating an environment where genuine connections thrived. Each individual had an opportunity to express their unique personality and showcase the bond they share with one another.

As the session progressed, it became evident that Marci’s family had mastered the art of finding joy in the simplest of moments. Their infectious laughter echoed throughout the surroundings, captivating anyone who happened to pass by. The genuine bond they shared was palpable, a testament to the love and warmth that permeated every corner of their lives.
Amidst the laughter and playfulness, we captured tender and intimate moments that portrayed the essence of this family. These timeless snapshots serve as cherished reminders of the beautiful connections that bind families together.

As the East Village Summer Family Session drew to a close, I couldn’t help but reflect on the incredible experience we had shared. Marci’s family, with their infectious laughter and genuine affection, had reminded me of the importance of embracing joy and celebrating the precious moments we have with our loved ones.

This summer, as the days grow longer and the world bursts with vibrant colors, let us take a page out of Marci’s family’s book. Let us cherish the moments of togetherness, find delight in the simplest of joys, and create lasting memories that will warm our hearts for years to come. And as we embark on this journey, may the spirit of the East Village Summer Family Session inspire us to embrace the love, laughter, and happiness that surround us each and every day.
