Technically we had already postponed this session by the time I headed out of the house towards Mariah + Ben for their lifestyle newborn and family shoot. The weather was supposed to be quite bad complete with not only rain, but thunderstorms, and because of that we had decided to move the session to the following week. But about 2 hours before I was supposed to leave, the sky was still absolutely lovely and the forecast changed entirely – well, it changed for the 1-2 hours the actual shooting would take place and that was good enough for everyone involved! And I am so very happy we went ahead with the session, not only was the weather that afternoon beautiful, the weather next weekend was not.Continue reading “Ottawa Lifestyle Newborn + Family Photography: The Kealeys”
It took Little Baby Jakub about 2 minutes to make a big stinker after I got him all wrapped up! He just seemed to know exactly when the wrap was done so he could get started, haha. Fortunately for me, my swaddles tend to keep most of the smell in, but then again that just means when it does come time to start unwrapping, there is an extra big surprise for all of us!!Continue reading “Ottawa Studio Newborn Photography: Jakub”
I honestly don’t even know where to start with this one folks. Baby Alice was a dream to work with. She was passed out when she arrived and pretty much stayed that way the whole time she was here, even when I dragged her session out for almost an extra hour (because it’s hard to stop when the baby is being so amazing)! But more importantly than any of that, this session was extra special because it was for dear friends of ours who we have known for sooo long now!
It can be a little hard to predict how photos with both a 2.5 year old and newborn baby are going to go. Sometimes big brother is super into it, and other times the mix of the new baby and new environment can make them feel a little camera shy. But no worries about that here because both Elliott + Baby Frederick did an absolutely amazing job!! So much so that their photos together fill my heart with so much joy!
It had been 4 very, very long months since I had a newborn in the studio so I was a little nervous leading up to Little Maya’s session. But the instant I got her in my arms I was right back in the swing of things! And as an added bonus, Maya and her entire family were an absolute dream to work with!
