Holiday Photos

Standard

Other than the staple holiday photos with Santa, I had never done professional portraiture’s specifically for the holiday season.  But when my good friend, Amanda Lazarski, let me know that she would be in my hometown early last month, I knew I had to jump on the chance to book her to take my little one’s photos.  I purchased matching outfits, practiced poses with the Princess and tried to do some hairstyles all in preparation for these pictures.

Then life happened.  Of course, it was dark and grey and windy and cold and neither of my children were interested in posing.  Being only 3 days after Halloween, the Princess was still in Vampire mode.  Amanda asked her to pose a certain way only to have the Princess respond “but I thought you said I could be a model?”  Nonetheless, the photos turned out perfect!  True to her talent and craft, Amanda delivered despite craptastic weather, fussy children and most of all, suffered a sleep deprived, stressed and anxious Mama (aka ME!)

Formerly Amanda Lazarski Photography, her business is now called Inspired By The Tree Photography based out of Trenton, Ontario.  I definitely recommend her services for capturing those perfect family moments.  She was wonderful despite the elements, the turnaround time for my photos was super quick and I can say the pictures I got for the price I paid was simply a steal! You can find her on Facebook.  Below are just a few of the amazing photos she took.
