The message I had been waiting for finally came on the morning of November 2nd….my beautiful niece Jesse was in labour!! Apart from the excitement of becoming a Great Aunt, I was super excited because… More
Have you ever met a family where you can just feel the love….like really FEEL it? It happened to me when I met the O’Neil’s.
Lisa contacted me wishing to capture some casual family portraits at their home. When she mentioned that she had four boys, I was a bit worried, to be honest, about how this would go. My fears were put to rest right away once I met them. Four beautiful, well behaved boys, who were stellar during the session! Might I add that although this session was taken at the end of September, it was over 30C outside, with hardly a cloud in sight! You would never know it from the photos that they were bothered by the heat. Genuine smiles all around, and some great belly laughs. This session was such great fun, and I’m honoured that I was able to be there to capture these memories for them.
I cannot tell to you how much I love this family!! I first met them when they entrusted me to watch their littlest one, Finn, at my home daycare. He soon became completely part of my family! Watching him grow during the year and a half I had him in my care was amazing…from crawling, to walking, to starting to talk, to forging lifelong friendships with the other daycare kids. When news came that his last day with me at my daycare would be the beginning of August, I hoped that we would stay in touch. So I was thrilled when Catherine contacted me to capture some family photos of them at Petrie Island!
It is evident in these photos the closeness of this family and the pure silliness of both Finn and his big sister Emma….from climbing rocks to chasing seagulls! So get comfortable because it was near impossible for me to narrow the photos down to just a few!
How gorgeous is the light of the photos on the bridge! *insert heart emojis!
I had the absolute pleasure of capturing four generations this past weekend for Monica and her family! The star of the show was baby Bria, who is 9 months old. She was sooo cute, I could just take photos of her all day!
Thanks again to the Zimmer’s for allowing me into your home to capture these wonderful memories for you! This is why I do what I do!!
I first met Candice, Richard, and their children last fall for a family photo shoot at the Arboretum, so I was just thrilled when they contacted me again to capture some shots of their extended family as a gift for their Father, this time at Petrie Island. Can’t think of a better gift to give for Father’s Day! And I loved seeing the just much Izzie and Neco have grown in almost a year! I can’t wait to see you again in October for another Fall Photo Shoot!!
There was never a dull moment during this amazingly fun photo shoot with Julie, Adam, and their two boys, Dominique and Damien. After throwing around a few locations, we decided on Petrie Island, a perfect location for this fun loving family. The highlight of the shoot came at the end of course when we headed to the beach, when the shoes came off and we played in the water! A wonderful ending to a wonderful time spent with these guys! Get ready for cuteness overload!!
There’s nothing like the bond between a Father and Daughter, and the love I saw between Scott and his beautiful daughter Olivia was a sight to see. We met at Petrie Island for a lovely early evening photo shoot, and I couldn’t be happier with the results, as you will see in their genuine smiles and laughter. I’m so happy I was able to provide them these memories that they will cherish for a lifetime.
I guess it’s only fair that, since I did a photo shoot with Maya the other weekend, that I do the same for my eldest daughter, Charlie. A few locations were thrown around but we finally decided on Hog’s Back. Brought back many memories of me going there with my parents when I was her age. We got a few shots in before her allergies set in and we had to leave…but not before enjoying an ice cream treat at the canteen!!
This shot was taken right after she sneezed….
What do I do when I have a weekend off from doing a photography session? I drag my daughters out to be my models! This time, it was just my youngest, Maya, who came along. We headed to the Dominion Arboretum here in Ottawa to enjoy the beautiful day, with my camera in hand. With the promise of being able to climb any tree once we were done, Maya agreed to pose for me.
It’s so beautiful there….one of my favourite spots for a photo session!
Here in Orleans, there’s an oasis tucked away that many people don’t even know about!! I only discovered it last year and I was amazed that it was only 5 mins drive from my home. So when Christi suggested we do our shoot there, I thought it was the perfect choice.
We had so much fun and their smiles are contagious!! I hope you enjoy a few of my favourites from this session!
Thank you so much, Christi and Kendra, for spending a lovely Wednesday evening with me!
I was so excited to do this Newborn Lifestyle Shoot, not only because I love newborns, (who doesn’t), but because baby Brigitte has a big brother, Johnathan, who is 2.5 years old! The other newborn shoots I’ve done had no siblings, so I knew this would be a bit different, and I was looking forward to it. Needless to say this family was adorable and because Brigitte was their second, they were so much more relaxed, which made for a great photoshoot. I hope you enjoy this small sample of their gallery.
