McQuade Family | Oshawa Family Photography

I’ve known the mom of this good-looking group since we played softball together when we were younger. She now lives in Alberta, but she makes sure to schedule a session for the kids when she’s back home! I especially love this first image that shows off their personalities.

When photographing kids together, I love these perfectly imperfect images that really represent the kids at this point in their lives. When you’re looking back on your photos years from now, which do you think will evoke more emotion – the ones where they’re sitting and smiling at the camera, or the ones where they’re being themselves, having fun, and acting up a little bit? 

And doesn’t that take some of the burden off you as parents as well? Your kids don’t need to be perfectly behaved at their photo session. You don’t need to have them practice saying “cheese” or smiling for the camera (in fact, please don’t!) and you get to relax and just let them be whoever they want to be in the moment.


If you’re looking to schedule your own Family Photoshoot in Oshawa or the rest of the Durham Region, I would absolutely love to photograph your family and document your little ones at this stage in their lives!
