Frosty Winter Family Session

Imler Family

Not every family is able or happy to brave winter weather and trample through snow for their pictures, but these guys embraced it all with a smile! The Imlers were so much fun to photograph and their laughter is highly contagious!!

When we arrived at our location and I mentioned that I would love to have some frost in the background, Christie immediately knew where we needed to go! As soon as we had trekked through to a back area that had been shaded throughout the entire day so almost NONE of the frost had melted off the trees, I knew we were in for an amazing time together!! It’s not often that the session day you’ve planned weeks in advance also happens to be a warm winter day with amazing frost!

Photographs inevitably reflect the emotions of the people in the picture, so I think it’s easy to see that their entire family radiates cheerful and bright personalities! I love getting to see each family member shine in their own way as they relate to each other throughout the session; it is such a special way to gain a glimpse into their lives and hearts. In some ways, our time together is over so fast (especially in winter when we’re trying not to freeze!), but I know that it cannot compare to how quickly the years fly by once kids start finishing high school and leaving home! I think that the fleeting nature of these stages is one of the main reasons these candid moments are so meaningful, and it is such a privilege to get to capture that.

Christie, Darren, & boys, it was so lovely to meet all of you and I hope you love your pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them! You are all troopers and I so appreciate your willingness to try seemingly random things and to embrace my ideas! Have a wonderful rest of your holiday season!!

Enjoy a few of my favourites from your session; I can’t wait to send you the full gallery soon!
