Danielle and I have known each other for a few months now (she’s the talent behind some of the amazing products in the DVI Bride’s Welcome Box, a gift for all my engaged couples) and I’m so honoured to know her. We’ve been talking about this Woodstock family session for a while now. I was super excited that the weather turned out so well. Oh, and that they were up for some of the fun shots I had envisioned, especially with the gorgeous backdrop that Gunn’s Hill offered!!!
IN THE WILD
We didn’t have to walk far to find a gorgeous spot in the middle of the trees and Queen Anne’s Lace. Danielle and Jeff’s property offered a stunning array of backgrounds. I have to admit that even though we had to fight off the mosquitoes, I fell in love with this property! On the premises, Danielle runs an incredible business, Wild Comfort. Here she creates the most delicious smelling soaps and other body care products, often with finds from her own property. I’ve seen her working with dandelions, I’ve watched her excitement as she found the secret behind thickening shower gel, and I’ve even had her create some specialty products; just for me and my clients!
ON THE HILL
We soon got tired of the mosquitoes, so we moved this Woodstock family session down the road to the top of Gunn’s Hill. For any of you who know the area, you know about the gorgeous views! The sun happened to be setting behind scattered clouds. The view literally took my breath away. The evening was perfect and some fun memories were made! Joel, Madelyn and Brynn; thank you for going along with all my crazy ideas. I sure hope that your family loves these photos as much as I do!
These two just celebrated their 19th anniversary! Join me in congratulating Jeff and Danielle; it might have been many years since you said “I do”, but your love is so obviously the center of your family. It’s a beautiful thing to see!
Didn’t these five dress incredible? I hear so often that the DVI Family Session Style Guide is super helpful. HERE is another gorgeously dressed family!
And it was off to Gunn’s Hill! If anyone ever wants to do another session here, please INQUIRE. I’d love to go back!!!
So much love, how could my heart not feel full when I get to capture these smiles for a living!!!
We had to capture some headshots for Danielle for her business as well; isn’t she just gorgeous?
