Family Portaits at Keg Manor and Maplelawn Gardens

I recently posted a sneak peak of a family session I was asked to shoot at the Maplelawn Gardens outside of the Keg Manor. Below are a few more shots from their shoot.
Not too sound to corny, but I had a great time at this session. The family was great (and pretty entertaining), the weather was gorgeous (not too hot or too cold) and as an added bonus, I found a new garden to shoot (once things start blooming)!

These two kids were so well behaved. I had mentioned in my sneak peak post that their parents were very smart and brought some suckers for them as a reward (aka bribe) for being good during the session, but either way, they did really well!! Doesn’t hurt that they are freaking adorable!

The next three photos are probably my favourites as they show three generations of siblings. To be honest, I hadn’t realized we had done this until I was editing away a few nights ago, but I think it is really neat to be able to capture this.

Okay, so the youngest generation is flipping rocks trying to find bugs and worms, but that’s pretty great too!

Family Portraiture at Maplelawn Gardens and Keg Manor

Yesterday I had the privilege of joining the Harrigan clan (so technically they weren’t all Harrigans, but you get the point) as they celebrated at the Maplelawn Gardens and Keg Manor. We took some family photos before they enjoyed their dinner at the Keg (I am going to assume it was delicious because the Keg pretty much always is). Below is a little sneak peek.

When asked if he liked his sucker (aka candy bribe), this little charmer winked and gave us all the thumbs up – it was pretty awesome. He spent the rest of the session turning over rocks, looking for worms and bugs.

Event Photography: Uithyaa’s Sweet 16

A couple week’s ago I had the pleasure of photographing Uithyaa’s Sweet 16 birthday party on behalf of a fellow photographer, Smiles Photography. It was a great time filled with family and friends and some really great food (including a fantastic cake)!

This is a little sneak preview of the photos from the event.Ottawa Sweet 16 Photograph

Couple Session in Ottawa Greenbelt: Chris & Jason

Chris and Jason are absolutely adorable! I got to spend the afternoon walking through the snow-covered forest with them and was able to see the joy that is brought to both of them each and every minute they spend together. It warmed my heart, which was nice because it was really cold out!!

Thank you both for letting me shoot you at this stage of your relationship. I look forward to many more great photos and memories.
