    Session Share: Cozy in The Woods!

    April 8, 2014 | Posted by Krista Lii | filed in: Photography, Session Shares

    In case you haven’t heard, it’s been a LONG winter here in Ontario. With the cold weather sticking around as long as it has been here, I figured I’d make the best of it with some snowy photo sessions! If life gives you snowflakes, make…snowy photos. Right? Anyways. I snagged this vintage Hudson’s Bay blanket towards (what I thought would be) the end of winter and knew I needed to make good use of it before the snow melted. Enter, photo session in the woods. There is something just so magical about a snow-covered forest! Almost makes you forget that it’s April and supposed to be Spring! This is our family’s favourite spot to go walking and exploring in. Happens to be a lovely shooting location as well. Total coincidence ;) These are my two littles. Anneka, almost 3, and Lucas, 10.5 months. They are at that awesome age now where they can play together and love each other. And they do, fiercely. I am so proud and blessed to be called their mommy. We embarked on a walk into this enchanted winter forest together for a very Canadian session.
