Maple Creek – Family Session

The Moores, Hinchliffe’s and the Hawkins meet every summer on beautiful Balsam Lake, as they have done for years. This day Ridout Photography visited and photographed the various families doing what they do best…. relaxing and having fun. Reminded me of the days my sister, brothers and I spent at our Grandmothers cottage at Sauble Beach Ontario.

This is the postcard I always wished I had received from my Granny 🙂

Maple Creek was named after this creek that runs through the property and into Balsam Lake

Hardcore Steelers fans and soon to be husband and wife 🙂

Mark Ridout - Hi Trina,
I can’t remember what lens for what photo…although i could look at the exif data….I used my 85mm 1.2, 24-70 and 70-200 for this shoot. Keep folowin’…. lots more cool shtuff comin’ 🙂

Trina Schaetz - Mark, I love this family photo on the woods. I keep coming back to it as one of the most appealing family photos I have seen. So natural and easy. Thanks for sharing all your work. I am an avid follower.

Can you share how wide of a lens you are using for poses such as these?



Jenn Hawkins - You captured what cottagelife means to our entire family (and brought many tears to our eyes at the same time!) We are looking forward to displaying such memories in our new home and being reminded of our favourite place on earth everyday.

Thank-you Mark! It was an honour to work with you. See you in a couple of years to capture more memories as our children get older.

Hi Mark
What can we say but “Thank-you!” You have capture great moments of family fun at Maple Creek. I wish we had done this years ago when my parents were still alive. Your work is amazing.

Maddy Glover - These are amazing…especially the ones of Aunt Bet and Uncle Bill. Linda that’s your wave every time you go out in your boat…and he has captured it.

Amy - Hey Mark!
Love the football pic! We’ve already had so many comments about it. People think it’s real! Little do they know, we got dirtier posing for the forest pics. 🙂

Thanks again for a great day…hope you had as much fun as we did. The pics look great. We’ll definitely be missing you at our wedding on July 4th!
