The Nordale Parents Advisory Group approached us wondering “would photos be a good fundraiser”?

Of course we said YES!

So THIS SATURDAY, September 26th, Coralee & Beck will be shooting mini-sessions to help raise funds for a new nature playground for the Nordale School and the community of Norwood Flats!

What is a mini-session? It’s a short and sweet version of the regular un-portrait session that you can book with Red Photo Co. These will be 15 minutes and will be outdoors (weather permitting) at the Nordale School! Bring your dog or cat, or grandma and grandpa, bring your new bike or that stuffy that you can’t live without. And don’t forget to bring BIG SMILES! This a great way to support a good cause AND get a beautiful photo of your family! If holiday cards are what you’re after, we design those too!

We are looking forward to meeting lots of families from the community and seeing all the smiles!

It feels like I (Coralee) have known Richard & Liana forever so it only seems fitting that I’ve seen some of their biggest life’s moments; getting engaged, getting married and now, having not only one but TWO gorgeous baby girls to spoil! Rebecca and I were super excited to hear of the birth of their little darlings and were incredibly happy to share in these precious moments, that seem to pass so quickly. Little E & K, we hope that we are lucky enough to share in a lot more moments with you as you grow up to be delightful little people! Two may be twice as much work, but twice as much fun as well!

Weddings are traditionally a celebration of love…and what better way to celebrate an upcoming wedding than with those that you love the most! This engagement session was filled with dandelion picking, giggling, eating ice cream and a good old game of scrabble. Throw in some curiosity about geese, a swing on a ufo-shaped disc and some kissing amongst the lilac bushes and it was one fun filled afternoon indeed…

If this little ones mop of hair and bright blue eyes didn’t win us over immediately, then the cutest little double chin and rolls upon rolls of the softest baby skin certainly did!

Little L likes to eat, and nap and is starting to give big smiles now too! He’s a little charmer, and looks a lot like his mama.

We can’t get over the tiny perfect fingers and toes, the eyelashes, and the cute little belly button! Babies are a wonder. These tiny humans that are completely dependent, and require so much energy. Our utmost respect goes to mothers and fathers who raise these little ones!

We are in awe of your tiny humans, and feel privileged every time we are invited into a families home to help welcome the newest members with a photo session.

This is your history. Thank you for letting us preserve it for you.

This little guy is no doubt not so little anymore!

Back in October 2014 we were lucky enough to get the call to photograph a gorgeous baby boy for a great couple! Curtis & Krista had given me (Rebecca) the honour of capturing their wedding day a few years ago, and now as their family expanded we were invited into their home for another big deal, to meet the newest member, Parker! It’s pretty obvious that everyone is smitten with the super cute new addition!

Molly the excitable pup (well, she still acts like a pup, so I’ll call her a pup), was there too, giving kisses and getting in the way of course!

It is always amazing to us to be given the task of documenting a family as it grows. Whether this be a couple journeying life as a twosome, the addition of dogs, cats, birds and of course children, the happy moments or the sad moments, we love helping you document your family history. These are your memories, your moments. Thank you for trusting us with them.

It’s been a while since I, Coralee, photographed Kevin & Rebecca’s wedding and trying to connect to do a family session last year before the holidays was an impossible feat…but it was worth the wait to meet their adorable boy Jordan and spend a fun-filled morning with them wandering around the Forks! I was warned that Jordan may shy away from wanting to have his photo taken and they he has even told his Dad to “put away the camera!” but after a wee bit he was having a great time laughing at us making fun of ourselves and trying to amuse him. We included some outdoor time exploring and what kiddo doesn’t enjoy getting to choose their own candy at the end of an adventure? It may not be Octopus cake, but it’s something (inside joke…right Jordan?)!

Lily wasn’t interested in having her photo taken. At all. She didn’t want to wear her coat, thankfully the sun was out and she wasn’t also freezing on top of everything else that seemed to be irritating the almost 2 year old! We packed up and trundled off to the park. First she needed some mama snuggles, then treats were a must! She finally started warming up to the idea of this little outing her mother and I planned when she was chased in circles around a mural on the stage at Coronation Park. We got a few real giggles out of her before she remembered that she was actually not up for having any fun. This kid has got one heck of a stink eye, and a mean pout to boot!

The park seemed to get old fast, so we went back to the family home and tried again in the backyard. Trampolines, tricycles and swing sets are wonderful things! We did manage to get more than a few smiles and giggles out of Lily again, despite her best effort to maintain a cool demeanour!

Let’s do it again soon!
