I want to take this post to send a shout out to Jay Henley Photography, who took some great shots of my family, and some great head shots for my website. Check out some of my favorite photos from the shoot.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank Jay Henley Photography for the awesome shots that they took of my family. About a month ago, we had a photoshoot in the village of Elora, Ontario. It was an awesome time. Neither my wife nor I had ever done anything like this before, and Jay made us feel totally comfortable.

We started in a park, just getting some shots of my beautiful daughter, Brynn Eden Mackenzie Ward. She was pretty busy, toddling around on the grass carrying her beloved stuffed hippo. Despite the business, though, Jay got some absolutely gorgeous shots, like this one:

We also managed to get just a few shots of Brynn and I. This is one of my absolute favorites – me, my little angel and, of course, Hippo.

Getting family shots was a bit difficult. Brynn is kind of a busy child, and very, very squirmy. Still, we got a few great shots, like this one of the three of us having a family hug:

Family Hug!

Brynn loves family hugs!

Some of the shots of Kelly take my breath away. Here’s one of my favorites. I’m not sure how I ended up with such a gorgeous wife, but I am thankful for ever every day, and not just because she’s so beautiful. She’s a wonderful woman and wife and an incredible mother!

Of course, Jay’s specialty is wedding photography, so we left Brynn with one of the girls from our youth group and Kel and I went off and did our own little shoot together. That was a lot of fun, and we got a lot of great individual shots, and others of us together. Again, here is one of my personal favorites.

There were a lot more shots, but these are just some of my favorites. You can see a few more on my about page and personal bio.

For more information about Jay Henley Photography, visit their website and check out their blog. If you’re looking for a great photographer, I highly recommend Jay. He has an incredible eye – not only for framing the shot, but for location too.

And one last thing: I was fortunate enough to have the chance to work with Jay on another project too, when I recently redesigned the company logo. The process was a smooth as could be – just the way a designer likes it. You can check out the logo here.
