The Gallo Clan

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!!

Julie, Adam, and their boys

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!!

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.

Emily’s Bridal Shower

I could hear the party even before I got to the front door, and I knew this would be a fun event, and I wasn’t wrong!  Emily is ecstatic for her upcoming wedding on July 21st, and it was contagious.  I mean….just look at her smile!  How can you not smile when you see it?  I just know she’ll make a beautiful Bride!

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!

Julie & Keegan

Rain, lightning, and thunder couldn’t put a damper on this beautiful intimate wedding at The Ramada on the Rideau. In the presence of close friends and family, Julie and Keegan exchanged vows, with their beautiful baby boy watching on.  I want to thank you both so much, from the bottom of my heart, for allowing me to be a part of your special day!

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.
