The Zimmer’s

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!!

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!!

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.

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!  🙂

The Bigney’s!

It was a cold snowy day up at the cottage, but we sucked it up like true Canadians!  This Boxing Day shoot was so much fun!  They didn’t take things too seriously and because of that, I captured their true nature.  I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!  Happy New Year everyone!
