Alana, Dionne, Ainsley, & Spencer

Back in April, I donated a family photo session to the “Olivia’s Easter Fundraiser for CHEO” silent auction.  This is an annual event started after Olivia was rushed to the hospital back in 2013, on Easter weekend, with an aggressive strain of Pneumonia.  Luckily, Olivia pulled through!  All proceeds from this wonderful event goes directly to CHEO, and I was honoured to be a part of it.

Alana and Dionne bid on my session and won!  They contacted me wanting some fall family photos done and I was thrilled to do this for them.  We met at THE place to be in Ottawa during the autumn months, The Arboretum (of course), and the fun began!

It was such a pleasure meeting you, Alana, and your adorable family!  I hope to work with you again in the future!

Marcie, Steve, & Ellie

I just love when I have returning clients!  Not only does is it wonderful to know that they love the work I do, but it’s also wonderful to see them again, and to see how much the little ones have grown in a year!  Last year, when I first met this family, Ellie wasn’t walking yet….now she’s running around and talking away!  My how time flies!!

This year, we decided to have their fall photos done at The Arboretum, not only because of the amazing foliage, but also so they can bring along their fur baby, Caycee!  Literally EVERY PHOTO was perfect so it was near impossible for me to narrow down my favourites for this blog.  If I could put every single photo in, I would….

Marcie and Steve, thank you so much for allowing me to spend a lovely hour with you guys again!  Can’t wait until next time!

Scott and Olivia

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.

Charlie

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!!

Maya

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.
