Ottawa Fall Lifestyle Family Session: The Gwilliams

I love doing sessions for people we actually know outside of our business life (aka friends). Not only is it an extra way I get to hang out with awesome people, but it also means the sessions are just so easy breezy. And in the case of Jessica + Jason, and their adorable little one Lena, it also meant that Kaylee got a play date with her boyfriend Gus.

Strathmere Garden House Wedding: Nicole + Stephen

What’s better than capturing the wedding day of an absolutely wonderful couple at a beautiful venue? Capturing the wedding day of a wonderful couple at a beautiful venue AND including their dog in the first look, ceremony and portraits!!

When Niki first mentioned that she and Steve would be including their pup Oscar in their wedding day I was completely on board. And then when I got to meet this happy puppers I was completely smitten with him and instantly understood why he HAD to be a part of the big day!

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!

Almonte Farm Lifestyle First Year Portraits & Cake Smash Family Session: The Kealeys

When we were planning this session Mariah + I were trying to come up with a location where we could do both Family photos and Little Milo’s cake smash photos all while not having either of her boys get too distracted by the surroundings. And I have come to realize that this is actually a pretty tricky task. Anything that would be fun for candid family photos later on in a session, would likely result in distraught kiddos before that point. Luckily though, they still had access to the unbelievably gorgeous private farm that we used for Milo’s newborn session last year.

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!
