Some couples we just click with. When we meet I instantly know that I am the photographer for them and they are the couple for me. We could talk endlessly about all the very best (and nerdiest) of things and have a wonderful time doing so. Nadine + Kevin are definitely one of those couples!
When Chantal + Brendan asked if they could alter their engagement session for a part engagement part family session I of course said yes. We have done a few of these over the years and it is a great way to let your entire family be part of your engagement and just the photo session in general. But upon meeting Tessa and their pup Maya, I am so, so glad they wanted them to be included because not only is Maya such a good doggo, but Tessa is without a doubt the coolest ten year old I have ever met!
Babies are super cute and all, and I love all the tiny humans who visit me and my newborn studio, but this puppy session is seriously the cutest thing I have ever photographed!! I mean, come on, seven tiny little puppies inside a classic red wagon, it doesn’t get better than this!!
I’ve said it before and I will say it again, winter engagement sessions here in Ottawa can be brutal! There really is no telling what kind of winter day you will get, and the cold, storm-ridden days are just as likely as the cold, windy, blue-sky filled days. And for some couples, dealing with the outdoor conditions just isn’t for them, but fortunately there are a ton of indoor locations to choose from in the area. Mix those with a few quick trips outside, and you have a lovely winter session in which no one had to get cold!
This is exactly what Sarah + Kelvin chose to do for their session and Aquatopia was such a great choice of venue!
One of the very best parts of my job is getting to meet so many new people. And although the introverted hermit in me wants to pretty much always stay at home, bundled up in blankets and sweaters, I always end up having a great time during my sessions because of these wonderful people, who moments before were complete strangers. And you know what’s even better than meeting wonderful people – meeting the tiny new humans they created, especially when they are as adorable as Laylah!!
