Ottawa Family Session at Andrew Haydon Park: The Griffioens

Ottawa-Family-Photography-Andrew-Haydon-Park-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyOne of my favourite things about my job is the relationships we create with our clients.

But for Devin + Brad, the hard part about this post is figuring out where to start as there were just so many amazing moments (and photos) throughout their entire wedding day!

Ottawa Cake Smash Session: Layla

Ottawa-Cake-Smash-Session-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyThis family really is one of our absolute favourites and I absolutely love getting to catch up with them so often. Whether it be to capture the wedding day of one of their family members, or to get some great family photos of themselves, it really is always such a lovely time.

But really, anytime day with this ridiculously cute little girl is obviously going to be a great one!
