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!

Thank you so much, Christi and Kendra, for spending a lovely Wednesday evening with 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”.  🙂

Zarley, Jackie, and Luke!

I have been super lucky, not only with the weather, but with having such beautiful families to photograph, and the Hutt Family was no exception!  Baby Luke had just turned 1 year old and had just starting walking, so capturing this special time for Zarley and Jackie meant a lot to me.  I hope you enjoy my top picks from this lovely photo session!

Susan, Jan, and the Fam

Way back when, I used to call Susan my boss.  Now I call her my friend, along with her partner Jan, and their beautiful, and very tall, daughter, Rae!  I had so much fun photographing these ladies, along with Jan’s parents, on this gloomy Saturday morning. Their smiles and laughter definitely made up for the lack of sun!

Family Session at Watson’s Mill

The weather was great, albeit windy, for this wonderful family session at Watson’s Mill in Manotick.  Another gorgeous family that I got the pleasure of photographing!  I’m a lucky gal!  🙂

Brown’s Inlet Family Shoot

At the last minute, we decided to move this outdoor family session up by an hour, and good thing we did!  The rain started coming down right when we were wrapping up.  So instead of getting very wet, we ended up getting amazing photos of this incredibly good looking family!  Thank you Marcie and family for allowing me to capture these photos for you!

The Daycare Kiddos

Lately I’ve been really interested in documentary style photography, so today I decided to bring my camera along during our daily outing to the park with my daycare kids.  No posing, no direction…I just wanted to capture them playing, which is what kids do best!  Thank you to all my daycare parents for allowing me post these on my blog!  🙂
