I love this family. My friends Melania & JP and their two kids are super fun, creative, musical and easygoing. They are wonderful friends of mine but we live a bit too far apart, and therefore cherish the time we do get to spend together.
On this occasion they came out to visit me for a sleepover night with their kiddos. I did a mini outdoor family session for them. I have blogged many sessions with them before, from maternity to baby shower, to newborn to family... it keeps on going and it's super wonderful!
I will actually blog this in two parts, since the following morning I captured a very different set of images while the kids were still in pyjamas following a pancake breakfast. I love those images very much but they're too different from these to share at the same time.
For those of you who have considered having your family or kids photographed during the winter, perhaps this will inspire you to consider it. I know some are reluctant with the cold, but as long as you're prepared with lots of layers and have a warm place to retreat to shortly after for hot chocolates, then all should be well! It has a certain magic to it, especially around sunset when there's a beautiful warm light.
