Meet Scott, Shannon, Rachel, Cooper and Bella. If you ever want to see how parenting is done, go hang out with these two and their kids for a couple of hours or days. The parents are awesome, and their kids are a huge reflection of how amazing their parents are. For their family shoot, we headed down to the Beasley neighbourhood of Hamilton, specifically, the old Hamilton Tivoli (or whatever is left of it). When I suggested the Tivoli’s graffiti-covered walls to the family, it was Rachel that said “that is perfect for our family.”
The kids were a ton of fun during the shoot; from the funny faces to Cooper yells “BALLS!” every 30 seconds to try and get a family member to smile. (Do you know how distracting it is to hear “BALLS!” when you’re trying to shoot!? Hilarious for sure, but so hard to frame a shot when you’re giggling along with the family!) Thanks for letting me be a part of your family for a couple of hours guys. I had a blast.
