Alain, Gugu & Calista :: Family

It always warms my heart when a couple treasures precious memories, especially when the the man of the house WANTS to be part of it – this was most certainly the case when I arrived at Alain & Gugu’s house one very hot Saturday morning in February: Alain was all fired up and ready for the shoot, so much so that the two of us started with a couple of photos of him while we were waiting for the ladies to finish up getting ready.

Alain & Gugu’s daughter Calista was almost 6 months old at the time of the shoot and since they had very little photos of her from birth up until 6 months, they decided to do a professional photo session with their family. Alain and I know each other from working together in the IT industry and he was dead-set on using me after seeing some of my previous work with other families, which was quite a compliment to me and an honour to be picked as their photographer.
Two of Alain’s cousins also joined us and everyone was so easy to work with and willling to do their part to get great shots…the kind of clients we all adore and wish for.

I hope you like the photos as much as Alain & Gugu!
