Ottawa Lifestyle Newborn Session: Amelia

I love lifestyle newborn sessions, but I love them even more when there is a big sister or brother involved because they are just so wonderful! And Big Sister Isabelle was definitely no exception. She was so excited to be a part of the session and was so good for her parts too! But of course, the star of the day was still Little Baby Amelia. And how could she not be, what with those big doe-eyes and sweet little face, she was such a little darling!!

Ottawa First Year Milestone + Cake Smash Session: Ella

Little Ella showed up for her session a little sleepy, but somehow it still only took about 2 minutes before she was showing off those beautiful smile and her amazing walking skills! The latter of course meant that both myself and her parents spent that majority of the session catching her and putting her back in front of the background, but hey, that’s what cake smash sessions are all about!

2020 Favourites: Families + Newborns

I started shooting family session about a year after I started weddings, and honestly, I have loved every minute of it! Not only do I get to work with some of the best families and most hilarious kiddos, but I get to see our couples and families as they start and grow their families over the years! It really is such a treat to be able to watch these tiny babes grow into super fun kids full of spunk and personality! So with that all said, I think it is only fitting to wrap-up the 2020 year that was filled with so many wonderful family sessions!

Petrie Island Maternity Session: The Legaults

Dave and I went coat shopping on Sunday. We originally headed out to get a coat for him, but ended up both getting new winter gear. This turned out to be a very, very good thing as the next morning I had an extremely cold session in the blustering wind. But, I mean, I got to wear my big heavy coat, warm toque and just loads of layers, so I was pretty good. Chantal + Mathieu, and their adorable little girl Mila, on the other hand, had to bear the cold with far less protection and they were such champs about the whole thing!!

Ottawa Ornamental Gardens Lifestyle Family Session: The Nuttalls

I’m going to be completely honest here, I was so freaking nervous leading up to this family session. Not because I thought they would do poorly, or because I couldn’t think of interactions for them to do during their session. No, I was nervous because I know this family and I know just how shy and quiet Little Kane can be, and I was so worried that I wouldn’t be able to get a single smile out of him during the shoot. But I am oh so very happy to report that the entire family was full of smiles and giggles all session long!!
