The Squire Family Portrait Session

i have to admit, i don't get the chance to shoot portraits often, but when my sister came to me asking me to make memories of her family i couldn't turn it down!  She has some of the cutest kids out there (i'm only slightly biased being their uncle and all), but they have great energy and were able to put up with me taking pictures of them for an hour!  We originally planned to do the photo shoot over Thanksgiving weekend, but we had to delay due to weather.  on a side note, this fall has been pretty stinky for weather i must say!  anyway,  i think we might try something again in the dead of winter or early spring when the weather will cooperate a little more.  Here are some of my favorite images from the shoot, could there be a better time to shoot than fall?  i think not!

Star Trails Attempt

I attended my friend AJ's bachelor party back near the end of August, and he is part of this hunt camp way up north of Bancroft.  I knew immediately that I was going to be doing a star trail shot when I got there, because the lack of ground light would make perfect conditions.  I don't get to shoot star trails a lot (only second time) and I learnt a couple things on this shoot (like setup before it gets dark so you can actually focus on something!  This shot is 150 images merged together, I would have liked to do at least 3x that, but lets say alcohol got in the way and it was wise to end it where I did!

Stormy Day at Tews Falls

Captured this image at Tews Falls park just outside of Hamilton. We left the park just before it started to get nasty, but these are the perfect time to capture some images! I love big clouds, as scary as they are, they add a lot of drama and just make an image complete!
