The day of my session with the Brodheads, it was pretty likely we were going to have a major storm. We bumped our session time up by an hour to (try to) beat the rain and maybe get some sun peeking through the clouds. Instead, it was cold. Windy. And it rained the kind of rain that chills to the bone. But this sweet fam of four did nothing but love each other the entire time I was there. Regardless of the temperature or the whipping wind, there were cuddles, giggles, and this undercurrent of trust and compassion. The photos are some of my favourites to date. Plus, it was pretty perfect that Gemma thought to bring hot chocolate and marshmallows for the end of the session, so I stuck around to get some sticky photos of the kids’ warm treat. If these photos of this family don’t make you want a hot drink and a hug from your favourite person, I don’t know what will.
