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.

…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.

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!

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!

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!  🙂

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!  🙂
