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.

Christi and Kendra

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!

Had to capture Kendra’s handstand!

Thank you so much, Christi and Kendra, for spending a lovely Wednesday evening with me!

…and Brigitte Makes Four!

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.

Dahlia Rose

Back in February, I was asked by Thy to capture her baby shower.  She was glowing and looked absolutely beautiful!  So when I was asked again to come and meet baby Dahlia Rose and capture some moments of her with her family,  I was honoured and accepted right away!  Welcome to the world, baby Dahlia!

Baby, It’s Cold Outside….

….but Jade was all cozy and warm thanks to her pregnancy!  Jade and Dustin’s baby girl is due the beginning of March, and they wanted some photos to remember her gorgeous baby-bump. So we headed to Mer Bleue just as the snow started falling. A perfect backdrop to a beautiful couple.

Catherine and Yves

The snow was lightly falling during this photo shoot and it added such magic to the photographs.  These two love birds, Catherine and Yves, are engaged to get married in July 2018 and you can just tell how in love they are!  From the cuddles under the blanket, to playing in the snow, these two were such a pleasure to photograph.  And I think Yves even enjoyed playing “model”.  🙂

Fun in the Snow

This past weekend I went location scouting with my girls and ending up capturing some fun shots in the snow!  A tame photo shoot quickly turned to capturing a friendly snowball fight between sisters.  They had tons of fun, even when Maya got a snowball right to the face!  🙂

Sigwan!

You know that quote from Shakespeare,  ‘And though she be but little, she is fierce’?  Well, this rings true for baby Sigwan!  She came into this world fighting and everyday she continues to thrive, no doubt in part due to the incredible love from her parents, Krystina and Connor.  I was so honoured to have been invited into their cozy home to capture these precious moments that last all but a second it seems.  The days are long, but the years are short ~ I hope these photos will bring you wonderful memories in the years to come.

Christmas Eve Shoot

Twas the night before Christmas, and what better way to spend it than with this lovely extended family at the Museum of Nature for a family photo shoot!  They were seriously the most adorable family ~ I had such a blast!  And the kids were troopers, especially since all they wanted really wanted to do was go see the dinosaurs…and really, who could blame them!  🙂
