Winter Minis, Bird's Eye Cove Farm


Let me start this post by saying how lucky I am to have had such great clients and fun kids for this year's Winter Minis. I had eight families (almost 20 children) all in one day. I was worried it would be hectic, however this year I asked my amazing cousin to tag along with me and that sure made a huge difference having her helping (so big THANKS to Leah). My Winter Minis were originally booked for Middlemiss Farms in Glenora, a gorgeous Christmas tree farm, however because the weather has been pretty awful lately and very unpredictable, I decided to book a back-up location. Before I go on any further, I must say another huge thanks to Kevin and Susan Middlemiss of the tree farm as they were so welcoming to me and easy going. Please check out their farm this year when you buy your tree. For Saturday, I ended up using my back-up location, Bird's Eye Cove Farm's barn, which is definitely one of my favourite spots to shoot at. Just picture this: when my cousin and I arrived to set up, we were greeted by the Highland cows, chickens and... out of the pig pen comes trotting out a very Babe-like looking pig named Forest. It turned out Forest is the farm's greeter to any visitors. He hung out most of the day, saying hello to all the kids. How amazing is that! Another thanks again to Scarlett's Second Hand Boutique and Espresso Bar for supplying a few neat vintage props for this round of minis again. What was included in these sessions was seven photos for families to use for their Christmas cards, however every year I try and capture portraits and photos families can frame and share all year round, if possible. I'm really digging the children's portraits I was able to capture this year. Here are some favourites:
