Italy Fall 2016

 Craig worked his tail off at work and was rewarded with an incredible trip to Rome. Our adventure began in Tuscany. Rolling hills, a perfect little villa, and wine that went down like water. Then it was off to Rome. A little intense at times but the history was magical. It was a trip full of amazing food, delicious wine, tons of walking, and time for us.

 

A Winter Session in Ellicottville

I photographed this session almost a year ago. Mom and I were introduced through a mutual friend and I was thrilled when they asked me to capture their family in their cute little chalet. Upon arriving, I was given a tour of the place and quickly fell in love with the quirky wallpaper, blue kitchen appliances, and rainbow carpet. Every inch of the chalet had character and a story to go along with it. The session began indoors with new clients and ended indoors with a glass of wine and new friends. This family is now a huge part of our life at Holimont and our ski days just wouldn't be the same without them.

Yellow Doors and Overalls

 This session is full of summer kissed cheeks, overalls, and yellow doors. For me, the perfect family to kick off my 2017 year of writing and sharing. Thank you Tarja and Ian for opening your doors and just letting me do my thing.

 

Summer

It is hard to believe that today is the last day of Summer. I thought I would share a little taste of what our Summer looked like.


Portraits

So many exciting things are happening at Lisa Tullett Photography! Fall sessions are back in full swing and I am thrilled to be teaming up with Hilary at One For the Wall Photography www.oneforthewall.ca  for our Red Velvet Holiday Sessions. I have also decided to enter the world of School Portraits. My goal is to capture kids just as they are and to give parents a little glimpse of their child right now. Over the next few weeks I will be photographing 500 kids!


Spring

While our winter was full of adventure, we were all happy to see Spring. Dirty feet, ice-cream, sprinklers, bbq's, and smiles.


After the Rain

Photo organization has begun around here and while the job itself is no fun at all, stumbling across forgotten photos makes it all worth it.

This collection is from last spring. It had just stormed and the light was  incredible. I let them stay up past their bedtime and I grabbed my camera. Everybody won.

 

New York

Once again, I have left this space for too long. I encourage my kids to write on a daily basis and yet I do not. I am not going to set unrealistic goals for myself as I enter a busy season of photography, but I am going to make an honest effort to share here more often.

Recently I was given a very cool opportunity to teach an incredible woman photography while exploring New York City. We spent 3 amazing days walking, talking, eating, and soaking up some of what New York has to offer. I loved every minute of teaching and realized how much I enjoy this aspect of my job.

We didn't know each other well and I think we were both surprised at how much fun we had. We walked away friends which made the experience one that I will treasure.

Thought I would share a few images.


Urban Walk-About

This family is near and dear to me. For the past 3 years I have photographed them in their home. This year we decided to do something a little different. Mom spent her childhood days on this very bridge waving to the trains as they went by. Today she takes her own three kids to do the very same thing. We began our walk-about on the bridge and continued on to an alley, a storefront, and finished off on some bright red benches. I absolutely loved every minute of this session.

Portrait Session at Home

It is no secret that I absolutely love photographing families in their own space. Most shy away because they feel their home is not "good enough". I honestly feel that your home is perfect just the way it is. It is where your life is happening and the ordinary becomes the extraordinary. Whether your home is magazine worthy or not makes no difference. People and light make the photograph and every home has something unique and beautiful to offer.

This family was a busy bunch but oh so much fun!

Beautiful Girls

Fall sessions are in full swing and I am so happy to be photographing so many returning clients. It is incredible to see the changes that happen over a year and how quickly babies turn into little people. These girls are beautiful young ladies now and I am so glad that I was able to capture a little bit of who they are.

Engagment Session

She is an old friend. The kind of friend that I can go months without seeing and pick up right where we left off. She has met him. A wonderfully sweet guy who asked her to marry him. I am so happy that they have found each other and that I was able to capture a few special moments for them.

He asked her to marry him on this bench. I wish you all the happiness in the world you two!

Garage Session with the Boys

These boys were awesome. They were a little less than excited to leave their brand new trampoline and join me for a photography session but in the end they totally rocked it.

Garage Sessions

Garages are honestly one of my most favourite places to shoot. While the surroundings are less than perfect, the lighting is amazing. The idea behind these sessions is to capture an honest portrait. One that truly captures the subject. For a limited time I will be offering these sessions for $150. This will include a 20 minute session and 10 high resolution images.  A perfect gift for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day.

Life with Boys

For many reasons, it has been a very long time since I have posted in here. I am working on a plan to increase my time here. A plan to make what has been a small business, a little bit bigger. You could say these plans are more of a dream right now but I have to start somewhere. Some day soon I will share.

Today I will post a few pictures of my boys. Life with boys is so very different than life with girls. My girls were happy to hold a pencil. My boy freaks when one is placed anywhere near him. My girls were so excited when their school readers came home. My boy breaks down when asked to get his reader out of his back pack. My girls drew and painted. My boys build and wrestle. My girls got dressed in the morning without a fight. The boys and I are in full battle every morning. I am thankful for the differences but shifting between girls and boys can sometimes be tough.

This morning I captured them just being them. Jasper had been asked to get dressed many times. I gave up and just grabbed my camera. The battle still happened but I was happy that I had a few shots of my life with boys. It was a wrestling, underwear on head, jumping on bed, kinda morning.

Him

He really is the busiest two year old I have ever met. He finds trouble wherever he is and super sneaky and quiet about it. He pushes me to my limit every.singe.day.

Then there is the other side. The side I have to hold onto because he is my last. The side I have to remember when I find him applying my very expensive cream to his entire body. The side that makes strangers on the street smile.

This is Archie.

Under the Blanket Mini Sessions

It is crazy cold out there. Really quite ridiculous. There is no winter play happening, my camera has not seen the outdoors in quite sometime, and I am going a little stir crazy!

I am super excited about my upcoming True Colours Sessions. I have a few spots left! If you are interested, please contact me at lisa.tullett@sympatico.ca

I will also be offering some mini sessions for the month of February. My very talented friend Tarja of www.connectionknits.com has kindly offered the use of her amazing luxury blankets for these shoots. Her handmade creations are beautiful and are the perfect companion on these cold winter days.

I will be offering these shoots on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Each session will be 20 minutes long and will include 10 high resolution files and 2 5x7 prints. Please contact me at lisa.tullett@sympatico.ca to book an appointment.

Here are a few samples from my Under the Blanket mini sessions.

A Cottage Wedding

On a crazy cold day like today it is nice to remember this beautiful cottage wedding. Emma and Eric were married at Emma's family cottage. The day was perfect. Beautiful sunshine, stunning bride, and the sweetest groom.
