Families , August 19, 2015
When Catherine emailed me about a family portrait session in Belle Côte, Cape Breton I already had my boots on. I haven’t spent much time in Cape Breton, but I’ve loved every minute that I’ve been there, and love opportunities to go back when they’re presented. I knew that Catherine was coming from Toronto with her Husband, teenage step-son, and two toddlers aged three and one. I arrived early to assess the light and scout out some good locations, but Catherine had beat me to the punch finding a really outstanding beach and scenic backdrop not far from where they were staying. I couldn’t believe how beautiful the whole scene came together as people walked away from our part of the beach and the sun started to set near a picturesque rocky outcropping. I felt a bit of pressure at first because there was a last minute phone call they wanted to facilitate before we started our shoot. I was happy that I had set an early date for meeting up, and that the sky continues to ripen throughout the golden hour.
I’ve included a few of my favourite image from the shoot below:
