Back in October an old dear friend Anne Headon reached out to me via Facebook with a favour, she wanted some family portraits taken with her partner Glenn and son Will. I have known Anne since high school and I'm friends with her older brother David. Turns out her partner Glenn and I grew up in the same part of Montreal (Montreal West/Western NDG), it felt great meeting someone from the old neighbourhood who remembered landmarks and I wound up making a new friend from this photo shoot.
From what I took that day in the fall I think this image captures the joy of this family and Will is the spitting image of his dad.

Photography in December in my part of the world is a fleeting opportunity with the late sunrises and early sunsets. I was fortunate to have a nice afternoon walking around Yorkville in Toronto last Sunday. I like the residential part of Hazleton Avenue with it's late 19th century architecture. If you have to ask how much the row houses are, you can't afford them.
