Brims | Hamilton Family Photographer

liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton01 I was so happy when Stephanie contacted me about booking a session for her grandparent’s 60th anniversary gift. Photographs make a great keepsake and there is no better time than the present!

4 generations of Brims, love this portrait!   liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton02 This is the goal, 60 years of marriage and you can still see the love in their eyes. While I was photographing the two of them they were cracking jokes about holding hands and cuddling up, my kinda people. Too sweet. liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton03 liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton04 These 5 have moved back to Canada after years of teaching in Malaysia. Their families could not be happier.  liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton05

Sometimes in order to get a family portrait you have to play ball with the kids in between shots – and for a while after the shoot is over. So worth it!  liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton06 liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton07 I’m in love with the hair on these two, so perfect!liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton08 These two happy boys and Wou in the background. Makes my chuckle. liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton09 liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton10 liz_czinege_family_photographer_niagara_hamilton11

Simpsons | Niagara Family Photographer

liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_family_photographer03 It is always a pleasure seeing the Simpson family all together. You probably recognize Katie, Dave and the girls from recent blog posts, however it’s been two years – and two new children – since I photographed everyone all together!liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_family_photographer07 liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_family_photographer04 liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_family_photographer06 liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_family_photographer05 liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_family_photographer02 liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_family_photographer01 liz_czinege_niagara_hamilton_family_photographer08I love photographing extended families. We often forget, or neglect, to include adult siblings and parents when planning family portraits (When was the last time you had a family portrait taken of everyone together? Or portraits of your parents just the two of them?) They are great memories to have and look back on!

With Christmas coming up consider giving your parents or siblings a gift certificate for family portraits, because – let’s be honest – you never know what to get them and there is no better investment than portraits of your family.
