Father’s Day Bedhead, A Family Documentary

Photography by Jenn + Jeff

Long gone are the days of Jenn being the charming assistant who holds lights and lugs gear … she’s been shooting a lot more on her own and, in case you missed it, recently named one of Canada’s Top 30 Wedding Photographers Under 30 (tears + cheers).

A few months ago, we were discussing plans for our family documentary series when she threw out the idea of meeting clients at the crack of dawn and shooting their morning routine … something she coined the “Bedhead” shoot. While traveling for a destination wedding, we had a stop-over in Washington, DC and visited with our wedding clients (and good friends) Ieva + Todd, still settling into a routine with their adorable baby girl Emilija. Before leaving, Jenn took the lead and captured her very first series of “Bedhead” photos. Not only do I absolutely love them, but as a dad, I feel they truly captured the reality of being a new parent. And since it’s Father’s Day this weekend, I thought it would be fitting to showcase a few of our favourite images from the shoot.

Although many of our ideas and projects will likely hit the backburner during wedding season, we’re looking forward to sharing more of whatever we cook up next.
