Ottawa First Year Milestone + Cake Smash Session: Tobias

Ottawa-First-Year-Milestone-Cake-Smash-Session-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyI am always a little extra nervous when siblings are involved in sessions, because sometimes they can be a little shy or apprehensive about the whole thing, and the birthday boy can sometimes feed off of that for their solo portion of the photos. But Tobias’ big sisters, Genevieve and Bianca, were anything but shy! In fact, the first words out of their mouths as I opened the front door were, “It’s picture day!”, and it was said with such delight and excitement that I instantly knew I was in for a tremendous shoot!

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!

Hold onto your hats everyone, because this post is an absolute cuteness overload!

Ottawa Studio Newborn Photography: Lena

Ottawa-Newborn-Photography-Stephanie-Beach-Photography

At about 6 weeks old, Lena was a little older than most of the babies we get in the studio. She was also having a super alert kind of day so she wasn’t really into the whole sleeping aspect of the session. But we persevered (and did a lot of rocking, swaying and swaddling) and generally just worked around her schedule and I am so happy with how her photos have turned out!
