i've known the harrisons for a LONG time. in fact, i can't remember a time when i DIDN'T know the harrisons! :))) such an amazing family. murray & natalie were so thrilled to have all of their kids home this past Christmas! ...and to top it all off, it was their 1st grandchild's first Christmas! (you'll recognize josh & leanne and their daughter, anaiah, from their session this past fall...which you can see here.)
i loved spending this afternoon with you guys! thanks so much -- 'grandma', 'grandpa', josh, leanne, alysia, chad, chris and sweet anaiah -- for calling on me to capture these memories for you. it was an honour. :)
enjoy a few of my faves from your session! (...and it's been a long time comin'! thanks for your patience with me! xo!)
murray & natalie.
josh, leanne & anaiah.
ha! love alysia's reactions....
anaiah's portraits with grandma & grandpa. precious!
then we ventured over to mapleton park for pictures outside! it was a gorgeous day -- but oh so cold!
ha! anaiah was a trooper!
alysia & chad.
we started down a trail and noticed some chickadees in our midst.
i looked over and saw everybody with their hands out, for the bird to land on... (it's not uncommon at mapleton to have the birds come right up to you to be fed...but to look around and see everybody's hands out...ha! it was funny). :D
love this shot of alysia and chris.
i LOVED the outfit choices and colour combos in this family.... it really worked against the snow!
love it!!! thanks again, harrisons! xo!
