If you know the Wong family this won’t be news to you… They’re great people.
I’ve known the Wong’s for a few years, but over the past two years I’ve had a chance to really get to know Chris Kristen and their kids at a deeper level. I’ve been working along side Chris at my “other” job at my church, and I can say he’s become a dear friend. He leads two departments at my church, volunteers as a leader in my department, and when he’s doing of those other two things, he’s likely giving his time to help someone in need, and his wife Kristen is no different. They’re the kind of people you want to spend time with and know, AND if you’re still not sure why you should get to know these two, let me just say Kristen makes really healthy food taste amazing. I mean, the kind of amazing that makes you question if you what you’re eating is indeed organic and good for you.
Onto their session…
When I scout a location, I take into account what my clients enjoy doing as well as their personal style. Sometimes that means finding a location that is local to them, or around a memorable location (where they met, first kiss, etc.), and other times it’s simply left up to my artistic ideas. For the Wong family, Kristen had asked for something outdoors preferably with trees. While on a scouting trip, I found a little gem in Barrie that I KNEW would fit this family well — an eco park. This family enjoys the outdoors, Chris LOVES fishing, and their son Teagan loves catching little pets. I knew this park would offer that restful atmosphere they find in fishing, and of course there were plenty of frogs to catch, which made this the perfect spot. For late September, we had warm 28 degree weather, gorgeous sunshine, and the sweetest breeze that kept all the bugs away — although it seemed to keep the frogs hopping.
