Fall Family Portraits

We are having so much fun this Fall photographing families and kids in the beautiful outdoors! The weather has been spectacular, and last Sunday night was no exception. On this perfect weekend evening I met the McCarthy Family out at their picturesque family farm north of Guelph. We went for a lovely walk around the property, stopping every so often to create some photo memories. Below are just a couple of the images this amazing family purchased. I could have photographed them all night long on this incredible property. Their beautiful custom print has been ordered and is going to hang above their fireplace so they can see it everyday.

Thanks so much, McCarthy Family, for welcoming me onto your farm and making the night a great photo experience for everyone involved, including the photographer!

“We had the most fun doing family photos with John! Not only is John professional and can listen to what you are looking for, he is also compassionate and willing to work within client abilities. My Mom can’t be as mobile as she once was, and John was so very gracious and made my Mother feel part of the moment. Even my Mom said, “What a wonderful man”. John was able to meet up with us on my family farm, which is near and dear to our hearts. I truly feel he captured the love we have for this location and he worked so patiently with our 3yr old daughter, who had so much fun! The “Chicken” was a big hit and she was so happy to name her. Thank-you for making this moment one to remember, not only with some stunning photo’s, but for making a “task” into a fun and ever-lasting experience we can look back on and smile.” Yours truly, the McCarthy Family

We still have a couple days open for Fall Family Photos, check out our PROMO and call today.

Creating custom one of a kind, kick ass, special, personalize kids portraits is what I LOVE to do.

This is a photo of my 6 yr old son Austin. Many of you have seen lots of different photos of him over the years but these unique portraits are what I love doing the most with him.

Austin is just wearing a Halloween costume in the studio. The other stuff I have created for his portrait.

Austin wanted to have “big muscles like superman” so that is what he got. I wanted a space or universe feel to the photo so I added stars and a planet in the background as well. I added more red cape to the finished image as well to make it look larger than it was.

When I showed Austin the finished image…. his eyes lit up and said “very cool dad….. I have muscles”

We are starting to do a lot of these custom portraits….. I am working on a “Twilight” image right now for a client with a 9 year old daughter and it is going to be EPIC.

So if you are wanting to have a crazy cool photo of you or your kids give us a call with your idea and we can give you a quote on what the session and wall portrait would cost. Come on…. lets create something cool together.

Cutest Kid Contest Guelph

It is a busy time of year here at the studio. Lots of people are taking advantage of the Fall Family Portrait Special and Cutest Kid Contest. We wanted to share this little cutie pie today. This is 8 month old Lila and she totally kicked butt! ๐Ÿ™‚ She gave me so many amazing expressions during her session that mom and dad had a hard time narrowing their images down. I was told at the beginning of the session that she may take a bit shy and will definitely not “go to a stranger”.ย  Well, apparently Lila likes being a supermodel. At the end of the session I decided to put my arms out to see if she would come to me…… VICTORY. Lila let me hold her while we were packing up and it was the highlight of my night! ๐Ÿ™‚

“What an amazing experience! Being a mom of an active 8 month old , having her photos taken can be stressful. Our little one was at ease with John almost instantly. She had so much fun !ย  John captured our little Princess’s personality, can’t wait to work with John again. Thank you John for this amazing experience and beautiful portraits!”ย  – Stephanie

“Our session with John Wills Photography for my daughter Lila was fun. He was a pleasure to deal with. Very professional, yet personable. He worked quickly but was not rushed. As you know, dealing with a baby, things can change quickly. He made me feel comfortable in knowing Lila’s safety was his first priority. He captured Lila’s bright personality perfectly. John has an eye for color use and perspective. He has a vision right out of the gate. Thank you for capturing those brief but yet memorable moments for us.” – Kevin

This is 8 year old Dylan. I have had the great pleasure in photographing this amazing young man a couple times now and it is fun to watch him grow up. Dylan was a superstar on his session and also gave me one of the strongest hugs I have ever had at the end of it…… I am still going to massage therapy to get my neck straightened out from it. ๐Ÿ™‚

We hare having a blast photographing these sessions. We are limiting the contestants to 30 in each category so if you were thinking about booking a session …… don’t wait. Contact us today to be sure and save a spot.

Memories Monday

I missed last week’s Memories Monday post, as I was in Toronto at the Professional Photographers of Canada – Ontario Awards Gala and Convention. (There will be a post on that shortly.)

But we are back today with an image of my son, Austin, when he was only four months old. As you can see, he was a pretty happy baby! ๐Ÿ™‚ He is now four going on five, and still just as happy (most of the time). When looking back at old images I can’t help but smile, and alsoย  hold the disbelief of how much he has grown and changed over the last couple of years. I looked back and found a post I made when Austin was first born. If you want to take a few minutes and have a look, here it is.

Now, I promise not every Memories Monday will be about Austin….. but being a proud father, it is hard not making every post about my family.

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Fall Children’s Portrait Specials – Waterloo

Fine Art Children and Family Portraits


One of my favorite child portraits I have ever taken.ย  I am so glad Edwards parents ordered a big beautiful museum grade canvas print for their home. This is going to look spectacular in their living room. We here at John Wills Photography want all our clients to hang photos of their family and kids on their walls. Photos are better printed by professionals and not kept on a phone or computer. A photo like this, when hung on the wall, is enjoyed and viewed every day. Not just when you turn your computer on and look in your “pictures” folder. I can’t wait to see this photo on Cam and Jessica’s wall.

It is not to late to book one of our Fall Family Portrait Specials so you too can have a beautiful professional print on your wall.

Memories Monday


Starting today I am going to try and do some blog posts that look back at my family and personal life. These posts will give you a glimps of things that go on in my life on a day to day basis. Some posts may just be a past family photo, sometimes it might be a book I have read or an reading, other days it might be a fun story and other times it will be a photo or story about my son Austin….. like today’s post ๐Ÿ™‚


This is an image from a fall family portrait shoot I did in 2013. It is one of my favorite images from this session as I feel it shows the true personality of my son.

For those of you that know and have met Austin, you might think the same way. Let me know your thoughts and comment below.

Well now this is an incredible way to start a Saturday morning.

We love hearing reviews like this from our clients.

“My two daughters ages 10 and 13 had an in studio photo shoot with John Wills. From the second he greeted us he went out of his way to create a super fun, high energy experience. He made my daughters feel extremely comfortable and was full of positive comments and encouragement.

I would refer John to anyone who is looking for high quality, beautifully shot photos. He takes the time and really connects with whomever he is “shooting” and the finished product is breathtaking!

An excellent experience from first phone call to finished photos. I very highly recommend him!” – Karenย Friesen-Irving
