Ottawa Lifestyle Family Photography Session: The Lillico-Thompsons

I don’t know about you, but I don’t actually work very well in a completely silent area. I need something going to be able to be my most productive. When I worked in an office, that was pretty much always music, but now that my boss is super duper cool, I get to watch TV (get it, my boss is cool because I am my boss — haha, I am so funny! 😉 ). That being said, whenever I need to write anything, I just can’t do it if there are voices coming at me, meaning TV is out and actually most music is too as the lyrics distract me from writing. So, long story short, I am sitting here writing about this truly amazing sessions I had with Kristina, Joel and their adorable little boy Zach while listening to some great gaming soundtracks!

Ottawa Studio Newborn Photography: Isla

When Rebecca + Keith emailed me to introduce their new baby girl, I must admit I was stumped for a second. They shared her name and it definitely took me a second to figure out how to pronounce it. I then confirmed said pronunciation via Google so I would be sure to say it correctly when I got to meet her in person (thanks internet!). And since you may now be wondering, it is pronounced like the beginning of Island and it is honestly one of the prettiest, original names I have heard in a while.

Ottawa Lifestyle Newborn + Family Photography: The Kealeys

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.

Ottawa Studio Newborn Photography: Jakub

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!!

Ottawa Studio Newborn Photography: Alice

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!
