A few weeks ago, we spent an early spring Sunday afternoon with Alicia and Jeff, who are expecting the newest addition to their family very soon. We had a ton in common with these two and they are incredibly fun and easy going so the afternoon just flew by! We were also lucky enough to meet their feline companions, Archie and Reg (aka Chicken and Squirrel). As everybody knows, Archie and Reg are two short-hair exotics who are the stars of their very own blog.
We started off the shoot in Alicia and Jeff’s apartment. The big white walls, high ceilings, and giant windows made for amazing light!
Alicia and Jeff were awesome together — every time we thought we were about to get a straightforward portrait, they’d share a joke an crack right up.
Of course, before we headed outside, this little guy needed his turn in front of our lenses. Though he did need a little persuading to pose (as opposed to just photobombing, which he was clearly keen on!)
U of T offers such a variety of places to shoot, providing beautiful backdrops. We couldn’t have been happier when we talked with Alicia and Jeff and they told us that U of T was an important place to them. Perfect – personal and picturesque. This quiet nook at University College was perfect for a couple of snuggly close shots of Alicia and Jeff.
(By the by, stay tuned for a fun gif we put together from this part of our afternoon – more to come).
And one last picture of the star to be . . .
We can’t wait to see the FIVE of you in a couple of weeks!
