I have loved capturing a lot of Graduates portraits this year and on this particular day I was honoured to be a Lake Country Family Photographer. Saul’s dad, Mark, had originally hired me in the winter to take some family portraits when everyone was home under one roof. Assunta and Mark’s daughter, Giovanna lives in Edmonton so it’s not often they are all together. When she was home this past winter however, the snow was falling in buckets and the roads were too treacherous. We had to postpone. Mark had a wonderful idea however. I could come to their home on the day Saul was celebrating his graduation from George Elliot Secondary, with all of his family. A big, beautiful party was planned in his honour and everyone was together. Including Giovanna’s boyfriend Wren.
I never know, when I am asked to photograph a family at someone’s home, what the background will look like. I am always a little nervous that I would be able to control the light or scenery as much as I would like but I was so happy with Rosal’s scenic yard! I loved it’s natural state for these beautiful family portraits.
There was so much joy and love present.
Shameera, the middle child and Giovanna had no problem hugging their younger brother and making sure the love they had for each other was represented in their photos. I love that! Some families feel uncomfortable being super close in photos. Not this lovely family!
Now that he’s graduated, Saul is heading to Ontario to study sports management. I think it’s amazing he knows what career path he wants to follow and I am sure his family is super proud. Dad had to stop during the session to wipe the tears away as he knows what a lucky man he is to have such a wonderful family.
Congratulations Saul on being a graduate of 2017!
