Family Shoot -Orion, Wendy and Mike -Fall Leaves in Barrie Ontario

I did photos for Orion and Wendy in November 2011 .  The first time out we had an iffy day for weather and it was pretty cold out.  Fast forward two years, add in Mike and some good weather and we had a terrific afternoon out walking through the forest.

Family Shoot -The Peltoniemi Family- Sunnidale Park, Barrie Ontario

What a great day to do a family shoot.  In my mind perfect conditions.  Not raining, or snowing, and we didn’t melt.  When you get the right conditions shoots are always fun.  Behold the Peltoniemi family having fun!!
