I love pictures… I think you already know that by now! So, I’ve been attempting to take some family pictures for a while, but without any success with all the parties, activities, golf, work, etc… it seems like we always end up having a reason to push back our photo session.
So last Wednesday, we finally had 30 minutes without anything to do after work/school and before a diner in Orleans we were all attending, so I’ve gathered all of our clothes, picked up the boys at school and drove back to Orleans for a photo shoot!
At first I wanted to go the Lincoln Park in Ottawa where there’s hundreds of Cherry Blossom trees, but no time for that this year, so we’ve ended up at the Orleans Fruit Farm where we usually go apple picking. And it was gorgeous.
I had called earlier in the day to see if they would let us take some pictures, and they did! So we had the orchard to ourselves; hundreds of beautiful apple trees all in delicate white flowers waiting for us! We only had about 20 minutes to change clothes, find a nice spot and take some pictures… so it was rush rush rush. I convinced one of my friend to tag along so she could take some pictures of the four of us. I have to say, I trained the boys incredibly well! They knew exactly how to pose and what to do… she would just say ‘Hey, Liam’, and he would get close to a tree, strike a pose and look at the camera with a nice, happy and proud smile… they were both so funny! They always find ways to crack me up and take silly pictures.
Of course I wish we would have had more time for the photoshoot and had more time to prep ourselves, but these will have to do for this year. Maybe next year I’ll splurge and hire a photographer for an official family photoshoot! You should definitely think of going to the Orleans Fruit Farm, for pictures, but also for their amazing products. I can’t wait for their tasty strawberries, but with this weather I guess I’ll eat some in September or something.
Hope you have a great weekend, I know we will, cause it’s Bry’s birthday tomorrow!
