Now that the cat's out of the bag, we can finally share this little announcement session we did for Rob and Katie Decoeli, of Wild Rosebuds blog. As part of our ongoing Halifax bloggers series, we were super excited to meet Rob and Katie. Katie had her heart set on an outdoors announcement session and the winter weather seemed set against us. After a few challenges and a bit of rescheduling, we finally met up with Katie and Rob for these portraits.
In addition to wanting to be outdoors, Katie also let us know that she wanted a simple session, with nothing cheesy. This came as no surprise to us, knowing the quality and consistency of her blog posts. After discussing locations, we settled on Point Pleasant Park, a place close to Katie and Rob's hearts. Everyone agreed that simple was best and we avoided the infamous Point Pleasant duck pond in favour of a simpler natural backdrop.
Photographing Katie and Rob was like photographing a pair of old friends. They joked the entire time and were perfect sports about standing about in the freezing cold. We talked dogs, Katie and Rob's recent elopement, career aspirations and more. Rob shared his tradition of celebratory cigar smoking with us and we were beyond moved by Katie's openness when she talked to us about the joys and challenges of expecting their second little one.
We kept this session short and sweet, to save our expecting mom from freezing, plus Katie and Rob were such pros in front of the camera that we got what we needed almost immediately. Congratulations Katie and Rob, here's to you and your growing family!
