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!
