Family Session in Elora, Ontario

Telling stories and sharing memories through the art of photography feels like a dream. Every time I get the chance to shoot a session with a beautiful couple or family, I feel honored to help them tell the story of their relationship; the collection of tiny moments that led to me clicking the shutter on my camera to capture something truly special.

Anyone love the smell of spring flowers and the warmth of the sun on your face in May? Or the dreaminess of an almost-summer day at golden hour? If you could see me, I am definitely raising my hand, which is why I truly loved the family session I had with the Schinkmans.

One May evening in Elora, ON, we walked to an open field with wild grass and a few distant pine-tree’s lining the river. Anyone who knows me, knows I’m a sucker for a field of wild grass. As dusk approached, the light danced off the trees, setting the perfect mood for family portraits. I remember having a blast with the Schinkmans as they joked and laughed through sunset! 

A good field of grass, good sense of humor, fun company, plus the cute photos I took of Karlee and her boyfriend . . . now that’s a recipe for a 10/10 family session!

A special thanks to the Schinkman family for letting me capture a small part of your family’s story. 

"Absolutely in love with our pictures!!!"

"I love my photos so much!

It's amazing! Even though there was hardly any snow for my winter wedding, Lydia still managed to capture some gorgeous off season shots of our big day! I'm absolutely in love with our pictures and we've received so many compliments from family and friends. When I was planning, one of the most common pieces of wedding advice I got from friends was "make sure you get a good photographer" and I'm so glad I listened!!"

"It's worth it alone for the memories"

Lydia was truly amazing! We have never had our photos taken professionally, and she coached us through the whole thing. We have now received our photo gallery back and just breath taking! In tears looking at how beautiful they are! Would definitely recommend using her to capture any occasion! It’s worth it alone for the memories we have from our experience!

"The BEST hands down"

Lydia is the BEST. Hands down. From doing pictures for our first pregnancy, to our engagement pictures, to our wedding; Lydia was along for the ride, and captured our love story and family perfectly. We love you so much! Thank you endlessly for everything!!!

"I knew I loved her"

After a very hectic wedding planning process, My husband and I never actually met Lydia in person before she shot our wedding. The minute she showed up I felt like I already knew her, and she made us all feel so at ease. Our wedding pictures are absolutely stunning, I still tear up when I look at them because Lydia really did such an amazing job capturing the whole day and all it’s special moments. I would 10/10 recommend Lydia to literally anybody for any occasion!

"She captured them perfectly"

Lydia captured the best moments during our shoot, we really wanted natural expressions and she captured them perfectly with our 3 boys. We love seeing their personalities shine in our photos!
