Golden Hour Family Session in August at The Edward, Prince Edward County

In early August Gigi and her family travelled to Prince Edward County from Toronto for a short getaway. They chose The Edward PEC for its design aesthetic and because it was large enough to host both her parents and her sister’s family. For our recommendations of the best places to stay in Prince Edward County click here. Gigi reached out for a family session to document this slice of time. As things were beginning to open up in Canada we were all breathing a tentative sigh of relief and prioritizing enjoying the freedoms we had. After a day at the beach, we met Gigi and her family at The Edward for a golden hour photo session. We took some time to get to know Gigi, Ed and their beautiful children and then followed them throughout the Airbnb, capturing their little connections. Their four-year-old son warmed up quickly and ended up getting his entire family laughing throughout the session! Oh, how I love when kids open up and show us their little personalities!

Smart Casual Family Session inside The Edward, PEC

Gigi chose two outfit options for the session. We started inside The Edward with the family wearing smart casual, neutral attire. Their outfits were complementary but not matching. Most importantly everyone felt comfortable and confident in their outfit. They were able to interact normally and let their personalities and connections shine through.

The Edward PEC is a dream for photo sessions. It is filled with natural light, clean lines and beautifully simple furnishings. This would be the perfect place to get ready for your wedding or elopement, or as a base for your wine country bachelorette.

Golden Hour Outdoor Family Session at The Edward, PEC

As the sun softened Gigi and her family changed into their second outfit option and we transitioned outside to the grounds of The Edward. Gigi and Ed were able to let the kids run around, through the wild flowers and the grass. The kids loved the freedom and we were able to capture them exploring nature and fully immersed in their family experience.

Mini Couple’s Session at The Edward PEC

During family sessions, we love to take a few moments just for mom and dad. Gigi’s parents were able to come out for a few extended family portraits and then took the children inside. We ended the session with just Gigi and Ed, having a few quiet moments with each other. They admitted this isn’t a regular occurrence in their busy lives and they were fully on board to spend a couple of minutes focused on only each other. I am hugely biased, but guys I love these images. I love the way they look at each other, their laughter, the way they fit perfectly together. I know their children are going to cherish these images of their parents for a lifetime.

“We could not be happier with our decision to have Two Cheeks Studio do our family photoshoot! We planned a last-minute getaway to Prince Edward County and after some research, Two Cheeks was our top pick so I crossed my fingers and sent them a quick note...and got a reply within 30 minutes! I was ecstatic we were able to schedule a family photo session and when we met them, it felt so natural and they put us and the kids at ease right away. Alecia and Patrick's warm and friendly personalities really helped get rid of any awkwardness we might have otherwise felt in front of the camera. They did an amazing job capturing precious family moments and our 4-year old absolutely loved the experience! The turnaround was quick and we were so happy with the results! Alecia and Patrick, you guys rock and we look forward to booking another photoshoot with you in the future! :)”
