A Day in the Life of the Garde-Ginis Family

As I was shooting Krystiana & Ben’s wedding, one of her relatives had approached me, asking about photography. If you know me by now, I can go on-and-on about photography and it’s great to chat with someone who has a profound interest in making great images. Having seen that interest, Krystiana and Ben had bought Angela a gift certificate from me that she could use towards a family session.

She had selected the “day-in-a-life” documentary-style session, which I couldn’t have been more happy! These sessions are a lot of fun because they bring out the character of the family and I get to spend a bit more time getting to know each and every one of them. The activity was to go for apple picking at Applewood Farm & Winery (Stouffville). As soon as they let me know they had arrived in the parking lot, I started documenting their family time, right away.

Spending time with them that morning, made me feel like one of the family members (yeah, the crazy uncle who has oodles of cameras and takes every moment he can get. LOL!). We enjoyed a wagon ride into the orchard, we picked (only) the good apples, we fed some goats, tried to hide in the tall grass, were led through a corn maze and once we were out, we spent so much energy that it was time for lunch.

I could relate to Paul and Angela, having three boys. It takes a lot of work to appease their natural inquisitive and energetic selves. At the end of the day, however, they should pat themselves on the back for raising fine, young boys who will remember the time mommy and daddy brought us on many adventures, like apple picking.

Hope you enjoy these highlights!
