Family Photographer London Ontario |Serratore Family
Meet the Serratore Family. This was one of my first families that I photographed while being back in London. I just love September. I think it may be my favourite month for shoots! You still get beautiful warm weather but also the changing fall colours. Best of both worlds! I met these two love birds a couple of years ago when I photographed their engagement session. I was pregnant myself at the time and who would have guessed a couple of years later I would be shooting their first family portraits. I was so excited to do this for them. Being new parents is so exciting and I’m so glad Alex and Petra choose me to document their new family of three!
Always a pleasure!
What prompted you to choose me for your photography needs? We fell in love with your personality and talent 2 years ago when you did our engagement pictures!
Session Location and why you chose it: Arva Flour Mill – same location as we used for our e-session. Love the country down to earth feel, it describes who we are and Daria is really able to show case that in pictures.
Weather Conditions on day of session: Beautiful fall evening light with a bit of a breeze.
Tell me about your favorite parts of our session, or why you enjoyed it. We enjoy when Daria puts us in poses, or even asks us to do our own thing as she captures us in those moments, it gives us time to reflect who we have become as a family and really take a minute to enjoy it.
Tell me about the outfits you wore to the shoot: We took, our location, our date and decided we wanted to wear something cozy for the fall and something that really represented who we are day to day. Pretty much everything we wore we had in our closet, Petra got a new scarf to accent the pictures and Alex some new boots to freshen up his outfit as well.. Everett of course has lots of clothes but we did get him a couple of new shirts for the shoot, shirts that are the same type of style that daddy likes to wear. It was also Everett’s first time wearing shoes!
What props did you bring and why? We brought Everett’s Barnyard friends, which is a little barn full of farm animals. We totally forgot to use it! We also brought Everett’s blanket, which was made and given to us by Alex’s Nonna.
What are some words of wisdom you have for other families preparing for a family session? I think when you get your pictures done, you want to portray a good representation of who you are in that time of your life. Wear your favourite sweater, or those old raggedy jeans you wear almost every day. Someday those pictures will just be memories, and what better way to remember then capturing those sensations in your picture.
We love everything about having our pictures done with you! It feels natural and easy and the results you deliver are always breathtaking! You are so talented and we are so excited to keep getting together with you as our family grows!
