This session caught me by surprise, in a good way! A friend referred the Agu Family to me. They were looking to update their family photos, with a specific purpose in mind – to fill a “photo wall” in their Family Room. Although not knew to photography, the Agu’s had grown tired of their “big box store” photo studio images, and were looking for something more intimate, pictures that showed a deeper connection, but also wanted a “polished look” by using a backdrop instead of being outside.
After making the quick drive to Calgary (any excuse to go to the “big city” is ok with me!), I was met by grandma Theresa, who was visiting from Nigeria. As everyone finished getting ready, I had time to set up my backdrop, scope out some locations around the house to pose the family in (I fell in love with their staircase), and interact with the kiddos as they watched tv and drank chocolate milk.
Throughout the session, an Easter egg became a special prop that couldn’t be put down. So, we worked with it. It’ll be a small reminder of what time of year the photos were taken.
As you’ll see from the photos below, this family is not only photogenic, but also a close-knit group who clearly love spending time together. On top of celebrating their family unity and a special visit with Grandma Theresa, they were also celebrating Mama Agu’s birthday! You’ll notice a few pictures of her cake – it was stunning with fondant, delicate flowers, gold, pink and burgundy accents.
I hope you’ll enjoy some of the images captured on this day.
