2019 Favourites: Newborn + Family

Ottawa-Newborn-Photography-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyWe have been offering Lifestyle Family Sessions for almost as long as we have been capturing weddings, but this past year we opened up the Newborn + Family Studio and I have loved every second of it!

So much so that I have decided to add a new end-of-year post to celebrate all these adorable little babes + families.

Ottawa Studio Newborn Photography: Lena


At about 6 weeks old, Lena was a little older than most of the babies we get in the studio.
