On an incredibly cold day at what seems to have been the tail end of this year's autumn season, this adorable family braved the chill to create these beautiful family portraits. Not pictured: very warm coats and extra jackets to keep warm between shots, and a lot of running around and silliness (and cookies) to keep the littles happy. :D
Truthfully, there's probably a hundred reasons why I love to photograph this family. But on this particular occasion, Marisa stole my heart when she showed up to our freezing cold winter pregnancy session with a thigh-high slit dress and told me she had picked the incredible Wääksyn Kartano estate ruins for a location. This is the stuff my dreams are made of. :P
I am so excited to to meet their baby girl and watch this amazing family grow.
Riina + Jarno's wedding day was one that reminds me why I love my job – a couple who look at each other like THAT, a couple who you laugh and joke with and think maybe we should be friends, a couple who kept everything simple and their love took the spotlight. It was an honour to photography this wedding, and I have the most amazing clients.
