It’s not every day that I get an email from an old childhood friend wanting to get some photos taken! Well, that’s exactly what happened when Stefan contacted us.
I was blown away because it’s been so long since I have seen him. When I (Bartek) immigrated here to Canada from Europe, Stefan and his awesome sister were two of my first close friends. We hung out, played Donkey Kong on the nintendo and had a blast. So seeing Stefan all handsome and grown up with his beautiful fiance Lindsay was a real pleasure.
Lindsay and Stefan both love horseback riding so they suggested we do the session up at the Pinto Valley Ranch near Ottawa. We too have a soft spot for horses and animals in general, since our almost eight year old daughter, Klementine, rides as has a real passion for it. At Pinto, we had a lot of variety to work with, horses, the barn, animals everywhere, and all of it in a beautiful snowy setting. It was quite hilarious because as we moved around the property taking photos with Lindsay and Stefan, we were followed by an entourage of goats, cats, two dogs and chickens! It was awesome.
Lindsay and Stefan were absolute naturals to work with and we’re thrilled with the portfolio! Thank you guys for being champs and working it. Here are a handful of our favourite frames from the day…
