Good things come in Threes: Ümla Summer Minis Part 2
On Sunday, I completed the final set of sessions for An Ümlarific Summer. As you may recall, we got rained out during the original date set for the mini sessions. Fortunately, not all was lost, as I was able to get through half of my sessions in spite of the torrential downpour that hit us just as I was wrapping up my second session. For a quick recap, check out the post here!
Lucky for me, everyone was able to re-schedule their sessions for the backup date. (As an aside, a BIG THANK YOU for doing so! It really made things quite a bit easier for me!!!) For the backup, I decided to go with a little change of scenery and try a different park - Taddle Creek Park.
And here's a little fun fact about Taddle Creek Park (thank you Google and Wikipedia): the park was built on the site of what had been the home of Frederick Banting. As in the insulin guy. How cool is that?
I have to admit that the change in venue was self-serving, as the park is quite close to my house. That being said, the park was renovated back in 2010 or 2011, so it still looks fairly new. In addition, the park has a few great shaded areas thanks to some awesomely huge trees. Considering that we were starting our sessions at 10:30am, having a shaded area was a must, in case the sun decided to peek out and cast its harsh, photographer-unfriendly rays upon us.
All three sessions went really well. All kids in attendance were very well-behaved, the weather co-operated, and the location was great! (I think that I will definitely be using this park more often for my mini-sessions!) We didn't get rained on, and in spite of the fact that we did get some patches of harsh late-morning sun, the large trees at the park came to our rescue, providing just the right amount of shade that we needed!
And remember how I told you about the client who opted for a re-shoot due to the bad weather on the 22nd? Well, I'm happy to say that we got the variety of shots that we were lacking during the downpour that hit on June 22nd. We were both happy and relieved to have re-shot their session.
Well, enough talk. Let's see some photos! Check out the little collage that I put together of the three sessions at Taddle Creek Park.
Thanks again to all who came out for the photos on June 22nd and on June 30th. I'm really really happy with how the photos turned out for both sessions, especially in spite of the crazy weather that we had on the 22nd! Now I get to take a little break from mini-sessions until October, which is when I'll be hosting my annual Halloween minis. Stay tuned to the blog, Facebook, Google+, Twitter, and my newsletter in the coming weeks, for the announcement with the sign-up details for those sessions!
Peace, love, and über-Ümla happiness!
