Barrie Orillia Family Photographer

This past summer we got together with the Greens to create their family portraits. I had found this huge field of Queen Anne’s Lace in a farmer’s field left to fallow for several years. I thought it would be a perfect place for their portraits. What I hadn’t anticipated was how difficult it is to walk through Queen Anne’s Lace, despite how pretty it is. Regardless of the walking challenge, we created some truly wonderful portraits for them. Of those portraits, this one is my favourite by a long shot. Sure, we have some really nice portraits of them looking a little bit more towards the camera than this one but there’s a powerful pull for me in this image.

Every time I look at this image, I wonder what they were talking about, what stories they were crafting about the field of wildflowers. I also feel a sense of them embarking on a journey into an exciting future or adventure.

For sure I’ll share some more images from the Green’s session in the future, but for now, I just want this single image to stand on its own, without the distractions of other images.
