windsor child & family photographer | breakfast with the Lee family

across the street from where i live, there is a grey house. in that grey house lives the Lee family.

two parents, two kids and lots of insanity.

John and Carol were the first neighbours that we got to know upon our arrival in Kingsville about 10 years ago. they are the best neighbours EVER!!  they don’t throw loud parties, they let us dump our yard waste over their cliff, they let me supply them with baked goods when i’m in the mood to pawn off sugary treats, and they have two of the cutest boys in the whole wide world. i’m referred to as Miss Michele when i visit, and not only do Jackson and Sam act crazy for me, they let me chase them around and give me hugs.

i like hugs.

i have been photographing these two boys their whole lives, but this time around i wanted to try something a little different.

i asked myself to breakfast and the boys made me waffles!

i think i’m in love with photographing families just being themselves. yep…. that’s where the memories are.


now, here is the funniest photo from the day. it pretty much sums up what happens when you have two excited kids and a fun breakfast. sorry Carol, i just HAD to post this one!
