Father's Day Fun at Baby on the Hip!
When Baby on the Hip contacted me last week about doing some micro-sessions (smaller-scale than mini-sessions) on Father's Day, I was super-excited! What a privilege it was to be able to capture tender moments between father and child(ren), Ümla-style!
In case you didn't know, Baby on the Hip's Queen Street East location has a fabulous little patio area on the west side of the store, which is where the sessions took place. I scheduled my sessions to run from 3:30pm to 5pm, so that we wouldn't have the hot hot summer sun beating right over us. Remember that while we all love a bright, sunny date, overcast days are actually ideal for photography.
Mother Nature was kind enough to us to have held off on the rain forecast, so I am grateful for that. Unfortunately, the sun at 3:30pm was still quite strong, so we had to be creative in order to make the lighting conditions work in our favor. Fortunately, I had my lovely assistants on-hand that day: my hubby, who was awesome enough to let me share a slice of his Father's Day with my awesome clients, and my daughter, who I'm sure will one day be taking over Ümla-photo, as she is very eager to learn about photography and loves being helpful. My hubby held an umbrella over my clients when the sun was really bright, and we also took advantage of the awesome shade that presented itself across the street from the patio area.
Those two things combined saved us from the evils of direct sunlight, made for some really awesome photos. Check out a little sample:
I also got my hubby to take a few behind-the-scenes photos of me in action, so that you can get a feel for how my sessions go. It's a tad late right now, so I'll likely be posting them next week. Keep an eye out on the blog for these!
I'd like to once again send out a BIG thank-you to Baby on the Hip for inviting me to take part in this event, and for providing the toys for the children to play with during the photo sessions! I look forward to more events with them in the near future! I'd also like to thank the families for coming out on Sunday afternoon for the photos. It was lovely to meet all of you, and it was awesome to see so much Father's Day love!
