Ottawa Fall & Winter Extended Family Session

Ottawa-Extended-Family-Session-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyOttawa had a really weird Fall season this year. The leaves took their time arriving and when they did they really didn’t last long. Or rather, they didn’t last long on their own as they were quickly joined by a decent layer of snow everywhere. I forget who I heard this phrase from, but it was like having two seasons in one. It worked out really well for the look of photos, but it definitely made Fall photos a fair bit colder than they have been in past years. Lucky for me I had some pretty fantastic families to work with these guys!

Ottawa Newborn Photography: Kane

Ottawa-Lifestyle-Newborn-Photography-Stephanie-Beach-PhotographyNewborn sessions are a little different than other sessions. They can take a little extra time depending on the baby’s mood as you really can’t tell a newborn what to do. Well I mean, you can tell them what to do, but that doesn’t really mean anything to them. I have learned over the years that the trick to these sessions is to be flexible and adjust to what the little one needs/wants at the time.

When it came time for Kane’s session, he decided that he didn’t really want photos on his own or really to be posed at all. But that’s alright, because as much as this lifestyle session was about Kane, it was also about this new family of four.
