Rockcliffe Pavilion First Year Portraits & Cake Smash Session: Elek

The weather has been so weird lately. Raining in the morning and nice and sunny in the afternoon. It’s nice that things are turning nicer by the end of the day, but it makes it really hard to figure out if sessions should go ahead or not!

That being said, Little Elek made my life super easy during his session, as not only was he super adorable, but he was also pretty darn patient for a one-year old!

Beach & Forest Lifestyle Family Session: The McNally’s

Family sessions with little ones can sometimes be a little nerve-wracking for parents. Worrying about whether or not their tiny humans are going to cooperate and have fun during the session, or just have a tantrum. And then if the latter does happen, will they just be done for the entire session, or will they be consolable and come back around? It’s definitely stressful and can make any parent a little anxious. Luckily though, I’m pretty darn good with kids and babies and toddlers tend to like me (fingers crossed that I am not jinxing myself for my upcoming toddler-filled sessions). And that means I am normally able to comfort little ones and make sure they have a great time during their session. And hey, when all else fails, there is always good old fashion bribery (and there’s nothing wrong with that)!

So with all of that said, it didn’t surprise me when little Owen turned out to not be a really big fan of being told what to do during the McNally’s family session.

Ottawa Ornamental Gardens Lifestyle Family Session: Henry

Oh my goodness, how could I have possibly forgotten to post this wonderful session with Henry and is awesome parents, Emma + Scott?! I knew I had issued it to them before hitting publish on this post as I was just so swamped with editing that I didn’t have time to wrap up blogging at the time (and of course didn’t want them to have to wait while I got my writing inspiration), but I didn’t realize just how long it had been since I actually finished this up. Well, long story short, I am (finally) sharing this wonderful lifestyle session and that is what really matters … right?!

Ottawa In-Home Lifestyle Newborn Session: Amya

Tara + Dion celebrated their first wedding anniversary just a couple weeks ago, and I feel pretty confident that they didn’t get much sleep or quiet to mark the special occasion. In fact, I would put good money on them dealing with crying, poopy diapers and feedings for pretty much the whole time. But I mean, when they get to also spend it with precious little Baby Amya, I think they would call it a win still (I know I would!).

Ottawa Lifestyle Puppy Session: Avery + Arlo

In case you are new around here, I am 100% a dog person. I smile anytime I see a puppy walking down the road and pretty much always say hello to them before the human walking the dog, and of course I smile from ear to ear when I see a dog with their head out the car window. Our own pup, Kaylee, brings so much light and joy to our lives and is the real star of our social media feeds.

So when Miranda + Jason wanted to use their session for some updated family photos of them and their pups, I was pretty darn stoked!
