A friend of mine rolled through town the other day... he was only going to be in Montreal for 36 hours before heading to New York (next stops Stockholm and Paris) and asked if I had time to do a little photo shoot with my family, since one of the things he does is take pictures. Oh hells to the YES!!
Martin is never home at this hour, for these kinds of shenanigans, but we manage without him. We just went outdoors, and Greg just clicked away for close to an hour in the park across the street from our house, and in the surrounding area before he had to leave. I served him freshly baked oatmeal chocolate chip cookies (from a mix, yo - don't get all excited) and apple juice to drink, since he doesn't drink wine or spirits of any kind. (What the...?!)
Anyway, what I love about rare experiences like these, is seeing how my kids look - indeed, how we all look - in front of someone else's lens. I take just about every single photo we have of ourselves, and it's amazing how different it all is when someone else's shutter is whining.
Amazingly great. And fun. And beautiful.
We laughed and we laughed, my delicious boy and I...
Thank you so much, darling Greg Wong, for the late afternoon fun! Please promise to come back soon!! (I promise to make more cookies...)
Do you have family photos taken, professional or otherwise? Where do you go? What do you do?!
